Today Jan 12, we are celebrating 150th birth anniversary of the great sage.

Here is the 1 hour video of Episode 47 from Bharat Ek Khoj, a book written by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, which is based on the life of Swami Vivekananda. 

According to Swami "You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself."

Few more great quotes from him:
"More we come out and do good to others, more our hearts will be purified, God will be in them"

"If you think about disaster, you will get it. Brood about death and you hasten your demise. Think positively and masterfully, with confidence and faith, and life becomes more secure, more fraught with action, richer in achievement and experience."

"Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, that is way great spiritual giants are produced."

Swami Vivekanands was always a strong supporter of Women education and Women empowerment. He never believed in worshiping deities and our caste system.

We salute Swamiji on his birth day. Happy National Youth Day!
