Description: One vision I can see clear as life before me that the ancient Mother has awakened once more, sitting on her throne- rejuvenated, more glorious than ever. Proclaim her to the entire world with the voice of peace and benediction” thus proclaimed a great man. When India was in the clutches of imperialism, plagued by poverty, destitution and diminishing self-confidence, he went a step ahead and proclaimed that a resurrected India would be the leader of the world ( Vishwa Guru Bharat)! That great soul was Swami Vivekananda.
"No wonder every revolutionary in the Independence movement drew great inspiration from Swami Vivekananda - he ignited the spark of a nation's conscience!
He had visualized India's preordained destiny of taking on the mantle of the world's leadership. This would not only be in the realm of spirituality but also in every other sphere be it economic, political or social. He called for capacity building in science and technology. Influenced by Swamiji's words, pioneer industrialist Sir Jamshedji Tata spearheaded the formation Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore alongside his famous steel plant. Sir JC Bose drew inspiration from his thoughts and went on to give India its rightful place in the world of science. Today, our advances in science and technology have made the world stand up and listen to us but Swami Vivekananda had asserted the need for capacity building a century ago.
“Every nation has a message to deliver, a mission to fulfill, a destiny to reach. The mission of India has been to guide humanity.” At Kanyakumari Swamiji realized India's purpose- its message of spirituality, its mission to teach human beings the science of life- a destiny of wearing the crown of world leader. He spent his entire life in spreading this message.
Swami Vivekananda called for the awakening of India if at all the welfare of human kind was to be achieved. “
In Swami Vivekananda's world view, so ingrained was the spirit or service and renunciation in our DNA that we will not awaken to serve Indians alone but will work for the betterment of the entire humankind.
Friends, we can say with great conviction that it is possible to achieve Swami Vivekananda's vision of a glorious India! As we are celebrating Swami Vivekananda's 126th Anniversary (Swami Vivekananda Chicago Speech) in September 2019. 17 September is Also a Birthday of our Hon. Prime Minister and Statesman, Youth Icon of Our Nation Respected Shri Narendra Modi Ji, let us use this occasion to tirelessly work together and play our part in realizing Swami Vivekananda's dreams. This is the best gift we can give to this proud son who consecrated our land!
