  • OM SAI RAM...


    A rare soul - Swami Vivekananda - was born in Calcutta (India) on 12th of January 1863. His father was a renowned pleader of his time and lived an aristocratic but pious life. His mother was an embodiment of wisdom and simplicity. She taught Narendra - later to be known as Swami Vivekananda - the true meaning of Hindu Religion. Based on the mythological stories from Ramayana and Mahabharata, she introduced Narendra to fearless character of Hanuman, to the divine nature of Sri Rama and Krishna, and values of truthfulness and simplicity.

    Narendra was very scientific in his attitude. He did not accept anything without proof of knowledge. During his college days (it was British India that time) once his professor told him to go to Sri Ramakrishna at Dakshineswar Temple if he wanted to know true meaning of trance or Samadhi.

    This opened up a new relationship of Teacher and Disciple unparalleled in the history of spirituality. This wise man of Dakshineswar with his simplicity and immense knowledge of Advaita Vedanta won over the mind and the heart of this young boy --Narendra-- once for all. At the lotus feet of his Teacher Sri Ramakrishna, Narendra learnt and realized true spirit of Eternal Vedantic Religion --Sanatana Dharma, and gradually evolved into Swami Vivekananda.

    The realization that with spiritual practice one can transcend the limitations of body-mind complex - the ego - and regain the memory of one's true divine nature made a great impact on the mind of Swami Vivekananda. He renounced the transient worldly pleasures based on the five senses and started to lead a life of a monk that later on paved the way for a new monasticism in modern India. For him now the mission of his life was to broadcast this message of Sri Ramakrishna to the East and the West - everywhere.
