~Swami vivekananda Saying~

5.  This world is just a gymnasium in which we play; our life is an eternal holiday.

6.  Strength is the one thing needful. Strength is the medicine for the world’s disease. And nothing gives such strength as the idea of Monism.

7. Despondency is not religion, whatever else it may be. By being pleasant always and smiling, it takes you nearer to God, nearer than any prayer.

8. Any new discovery of truth does not contradict the past truth but fits into it.

9. Our King Janaka tilled the soil with his own hands, and he was also the greatest of the knowers of Truth, of his time.

10. Not believing in the glory of our own soul is what the Vedanta calls atheism.

11.  You are the makers of your own fortunes. You make yourselves suffer, you make good and evil, and it is you who put your hands before your eyes and say it is dark. Take your hands away and see the light.

12.  The senses cheat you day and night. Vedanta found that out ages ago, modern science is just discovering the same fact.

13.  It will not do merely to listen to great principles. You must apply them in the practical field, turn them into constant practice.

14.  Of Gyan and Bhakti, he who advocates one and denounces the other cannot be either a Jnanin or a Bhakta, but he is a thief and a cheat.

15.  While real perfection is only one, relative perfections must be many.

16.  The wind of grace of the Lord is blowing on, for ever and ever. Do you spread your sail.

17.  Practice is absolutely necessary. You may sit down and listen to me by the hour every day, but if you do not practice, you will not get one step further.

18.   So long as the ‘skin sky’ surrounds man, that is, so long as he identifies himself with his body, he cannot see God.

19.  Men worship Incarnations such as Christ or Buddha. They are the most perfect manifestations of the eternal Slef. They are much higher than all the conceptions of God that you or I can make.

20. The happiest moments we ever know are when we entirely forget ourselves.

21. Books cannot teach God, but they can destroy ignorance; their action is negative.

22. The monk is the religious expert, having made religion his one métier of life. He is the soldier of God.

23. I do not believe in a God who cannot give me bread here, giving me eternal bliss in heaven !

24. The first thing to be got rid of by him who would be a Gyanani, is fear.

25. Brahman, this Reality, is unknown and unknowable, not in the sense of the agnostic, but because to know Him would be a blasphemy, because you are He already.

26. Where do you find the Indian Society standing still ? It is always on the move. Sometimes, as in the times of foreign invasions, the movement has been slow, at other times quicker. This is what I say to my countrymen, I do not condemn them. I look into their past. I find that under the circumstances no nation could do more glorious work. I tell them that they have done well. I only ask them to do better.

27. Our ideal is the Brahmin of spiritual culture and renunciation. By the Brahmin ideal Brahminness in which worldliness is altogether absent and true wisdom is abundantly present. That is the ideal of the Hindu race.

28. Buddha was a working Gynani, Christ was a Bhakta, but the same goal was reached by them.

29. Maya is eternal both-ways, taken universally, as genus; but it is not-eternal individually.

30. Renunciation is the real beginning of religion. Nowadays it is very hard even to talk of renunciation. It was said of me in America that I was a man who came out of a land that had been dead and buried for five thousand years, and talked of renunciation. So says perhaps the English philosopher. Yet it is true that is the only path to religion. Renounce and give up.
