I love myself despite infinite faults. How can I hate someone only with a few faults?

A vast collection of millions of galaxies make up the universe. That is made up of planets revolving around one another and producing a cacophony of vibrations that impacts who we are. God gave humans the ability to reason, observe, and acquire knowledge. However, he did not grant him the one ability that would have made him immortal. The ability to find salvation and contentment in one's possessions. He created a being in man that was never static.

A question

Do you think any one of us is ever at peace? We are always looking for a source that quenches our thirst for success. But does that satisfy his thirst forever? No right! That is what makes us human rights, the puppets of the game called mortality. The above quote is by the legendary thinker himself. A human is flawed; his flaws make him alive. Swamiji explains to us the same thing. We are all humans and all of us are flawed.

On the contrary, people think they are superior to each other. All they want is power and prestige. Swamiji says if money is used to do good for others, it is of some value. Money is the driving force of the youth. Swamiji is considered a youth icon. 12 January is celebrated as a youth day. It is the birth anniversary of the benevolent monk and philosopher, SWAMI VIVEKANANDA. Vivekananda believed that true religion is man's service.

He preached to his young followers to have faith in themselves and God in difficult times. His ideals and teachings inspire the youth to think more, think deeply, and be persistent towards their dreams. His ideas for achieving success are simple. Hard work and dedication are the oars that will peddle your boat of dreams to its shore. Swami Vivekananda completed his college graduation from Scottish Church College. He was a bachelor of Arts. The great philosopher joined ‘The Brahmo Samaj at a very early age. He is the first person to introduce Vedanta and yoga to the West.

His energy is alive in the modern-day era. His ideas for the combined religious ideologies brought a new alternative to the orthodox and divided religious practices. India has emerged as a country full of possibilities in the race for progress. Those among the youth associated with Swami Vivekananda’s ideas are preparing India for a leadership role on the world stage. Arise, awake, and stop not till the goal is reached.” This mantra of Vivekananda is as relevant and inspiring today as it was earlier. Now, India is prepared to be a worldwide leader. With the power of yoga and the energy that comes from spirituality, the youth of the country are impatient to be the navigators of the world.

Swamiji’s lessons about “Make a life’s aim and incorporate that idea into your life…. Think that thought over and over again. Dream it, live it… that’s the key to being successful.” This urges the youth to be focused and persistent about their passions, to be the best versions of themselves, and to have courage in the stride of life. Vivekananda caught the world’s attention together with his ideas when he represented Sanatan Dharma in Chicago in 1893. A speech like the one he made could not be made today. The themes therein speech included “Vishwabandhutva”, tolerance, cooperativeness, participation, religion, culture, nation, nationalism, and therefore the collective India-Indianness.

This speech taught the youth and the other people the value of living lies in faith, honesty, integrity, and authenticity. To be faithful to your purpose in life. His teachings revolutionized the mindset of many other religious leaders.

"I come from that Hindustan, which sheltered persecuted people from all religions and countries," Vivekananda declared at the Parliament of World Religions. Sanatan Dharma, he added, is the mother of all religions. Additionally, he took great pride in the fact that tolerance and acceptance for all had been sown by his motherland and the Sanatani religion. The Indian subcontinent is known for being a flourishing, secular nation. Referring to the Parliament of World Religions as his "brothers and sisters in the United States,"

The everlasting message of universal brotherhood was evident in his speech. Swamiji succeeded in the efforts of other monks to understand the roots of India. His teachings reflect his deep affection for his country and openness to worldly beliefs. Swami Vivekananda rightly said, “All power is within you, you can do anything and everything

Rise sunshine!

The world is waiting for you!
