The Early Life of Swami Vivekananda
Friends, So now we are starting early life: Vivekananda was born 12 Jan 1863 in Kolkata, in his childhood his name was Narendra and his father’s name was Vishwanath Dutt and his mothers were Bhuvaneshwari Devi, and Biswanath Dutt was a successful and famous lawyer of the Calcutta high court of his time. He was also proficient in Persian and English.
Also, Mata Bhuvaneshwari Devi was a wise and intelligent woman, she had dominion in religious texts like Mahabharata and Ramayana. She was also well versed in English.
Moreover, In such a situation, it was natural for the boy Narendra to gain initial knowledge of the Western English language at home,
While his mother had the opportunity to gain a close understanding of Hindu religion and culture.
After This Story
After it guys, A Spirituality had such a profound effect on the boy Narendra under the help of his mother so that he used to be immersed in meditation at home.
It is said that one day he became so absorbed in meditation at home that when housemates broke open the bedroom door and shook them loudly,
Similarly, hey went somewhere and broke his attention.
In the future, this boy became the bearer of meditation, spirituality, nationalism, Hinduism and also culture became known as Swami Vivekananda.
At age six, Narendra was admitted to the school, and it is 1877 when I was studying in the third grade. But his family suddenly had to go to Raipur for some reason,
And Circumstantially the studies of the boy Narendra were interrupted in the middle.
Then, after two years, his family returned to Calcutta, but upon seeing the grace of God and the ability of the boy Narendra, the school admitted him again.
The boy Narendra, while wasting no time, devoted so much attention to his studies that he completed the three-year course in a single year.
After Three Year Course
Guys so after three years the course,
the result of devotion to God and education was that Narendra passed the university entrance examination with special merit and obtained
And also get admission to the famous College of the Presidency, Kolkata.
At that time, the Director of the College of the Presidency, WDW and he was very impressed with the talent of young Narendra, he once said:
‘I have gone to many countries and I have many dear students, but I have not seen a talented and talented disciple like Narendra’.
Guys as well as were influenced in life by the ideas of Narendra John Stuart, Herbert Spencer, and Hume. Moreover study caused a great change in the thoughts of the young Narendra.
During this time, he had an inclination towards the Brahmo Samaj, due to his intense desire to know the truth,
He came into contact with Maharishi Devendra Nath Thakur, the leader of the Brahmo Samaj.
After contact with Maharishi Devendra Nath Thakur
So friends One day, young Narendra asked Devendra Nath Thakur: “Have you seen God” and he was surprised by this question from Narendra to calm the curiosity of young Narendra,
And he also advised Narendra to go to Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa was a priest at the Kali temple in Dakshineswar, Kolkata at the time.
Although Narendra had heard about Ramakrishna Paramahamsa from the director of his university,
William Hastie, but his attention was not attracted by Ramakrishna Paramahamsa at the time,
Now when he heard the mention of him from Devendra Nath Thakur, he decided to meet Paramahamsa and contacted them.
Here also, he asked Paramahansa the same question if he saw God and Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, answering young Narendra’s question, said:
“Yes, I have seen and spoken, just as I am seeing and speaking to you.”
Then Narendra was also greatly influenced by Ramakrishna Paramahamsa’s thoughts,
Now he started to visit Dakshineswar temple at the same time and his relationship with Ramakrishna Paramahamsa grew stronger.
A Spiritual Journey of Swami Vivekananda
But Narendra father died in 1884, the house was clouded by the economic crisis and after her father’s death, he passed her bachelor’s exam and began studying law.
Because At that time his poverty was such that he used to go to university in torn clothes and without shoes, but even in this poverty,
His attraction to God and spirituality did not decrease, and then closeness between Narendra and Ramakrishna Paramahamsa increased.
Ramakrishna Paramahamsa suffered from cancer in 1885 and the following year he went to heaven,
After which Narendra established Ramakrishna Sangha in Varahanagar , then was later renamed Ramakrishna Math.
Then few days after the establishment of the Ramakrishna Sangh and the young Narendra made a vow of celibacy and sacrifice
By performing the Viraja home rites and became Swami Vivekananda of Narendra. He remained in Varahnagar until 1888 and then toured India.
So after it, Varanasi, Ayodhya, Lucknow, Agra, Vrindavan, and Hathras all headed for the Himalayas. and it was at Hathras railway station that he started station master Sharat Chandra Gupta and named him Sadanand, making him his first disciple.
In the year 1890, Swamiji returned to Varahnagar. Because in February 1891 Swamiji became one-sided and travelled as Parivrajaka for two years. During this tour, he came into contact with the Rajputhan royal family of Rajasthan, Maharaj of Alwar and Khetri took initiation from him. And after travelling to Rajasthan, he undertook a journey to South India through Mumbai.
Also, On December 23, 1892, Swamiji arrived at Kanyakumari,
Moreover, where he remained for three days in a long and grave. and upon returning from there, he encountered his Gurubhai Swami Brahmanand and Swami Turyanand residing on Abu Road, Rajasthan.
And so friends, at this meeting, he explained his anguish and said: “I have travelled all over India. Seeing the poverty of the country and the sufferings of the people, I am very distressed, now I am going to America for their liberation.” Because It is well known that after Swami Ji visit to America, there was a great change in the thinking and thinking of India throughout the world.
Swami Vivekananda’s Speech In Chicago
As well as May 31, 1893, Swami Vivekananda left Mumbai to go to America to join the World Parliament of Religion. And then travelled to Chicago in late July via Sri Lanka, Panama, Singapore, Hong Kong, Canton, Nagasaki, Osaka, Kyoto, Tokyo, Yokohama on a rough sea voyage.
After going there, he. learned that in the first week of September, the Dharma Sansad will start,
but Swami was upset to learn that only representatives of known institutions will have an opportunity to speak here.
He first approached a friend of Madras to discuss this issue,
but was disappointed, then approached Professor John Henry Wright of Harvard University. Then Wright invited Swamiji to make a speech at Harvard.
Professor Wright was so impressed by Swamiji speech at Harvard that he told Swamiji that it is the same as asking for a presentation,
as well as asking the Sun by what authority is shining in the sky.
After this, Professor Wright wrote a letter to the President of the Parliament of Religions,
No allow this great man to join the Parliament of Religion, not on behalf of atny institution but as a representative of India.
On September 11, 1893, the Parliament of Religions began in Chicago. When it was Swami Vivekananda’s turn to address the Dharma Sansad, he was a little nervous and beads of sweat gleamed on his forehead.
People present there felt that this young monk who came from India would not be able to speak anything, then, while restraining himself,
Swamiji meditated on his Guru and then continued to listen to the Dharma Sansad that came out of his mouth.
Swami first words in this speech were: My brothers and sisters in America. Because Everyone was amazed by these sweet words of love from Swamiji and the audience resounded with applause for about two minutes,
after which Swamiji delivered a speech so eloquent full of spirituality and enlightenment that the story of the speech (in Speech) was written
In the speech delivered by Swami Vivekananda at the Chicago World Parliament of Religion,
Then he had knowledge of Vedic philosophy, the message of living peace in the world was hidden,
in his speech (Swech), Swamiji fiercely attacked fundamentalism and communalism.
After this, during the day that the Parliament of Religion continued, Swamiji gave the world knowledge about Hinduism and India, which created a new image of India. After the Parliament of Religion, Swamiji respect increased not only in the United States but also around the world.
His handcuffed photo became famous as ‘Chicago Pose’ because his photograph of the historical speech was captured by a photographer named Thomas Harrison on his camera.
So guys, After the end of the Parliament of Religion, our Swami Vivekananda continued to spread the teachings of Vedanta in the United States and Great Britain for the next three years and on January 15, 1897, Swamiji arrived in Sri Lanka from the United States, where he was very well received.
So this they reached Rameswaram and left by train for Kolkata, people gathered in large numbers to see and hear them all the way.
because Speaking with people,
Swamiji put development at the Center and they understood that their country urgently needs development beyond spirituality.
Return to kolkata
As well as returning to Kolkata, Swami Vivekananda laid the foundations of the Ramakrishna Mission on May 1, 1897,
then main objective of the Ramakrishna Mission was to enter the field of hospitals, schools, universities and sanitation to build a new India.
By now Swami Vivekananda had become a role model for the youth of the country,
In 1898 Swamiji established Belur Math and gave a new dimension to the philosophy of Indian life.
As well as, Swami Vivekananda continued his journey in India. On the other hand, once again he went to the United States on his second trip abroad on June 20, 1899,
Swamiji opened spiritual centres in places like California, San Francisco, Alameda, etc., and entrusted his Gurubhai Swami Turyanand.
Guys so In July 1900, Swamiji went to Paris, where he joined the Congress of Communiqués of History and he returned to India in December, travelling through Vienna, Kustuntunia, Athens and Egypt, staying in Paris for almost three months.
The journey of his journey continued continuously in India as well, on July 4, 1902, at the age of 39,
Swamiji gave up his body at Belur Math.
Swami Vivekananda Contribution to Humanity and Nation
The confidence that Swami Vivekananda instilled in the youth of
India in his brief life will remember many generations to come and will be guided.
He used to say: ‘Get up, wake up, wake up yourself and wake up others Make your human birth successful and don’t stop until you have reached the Goal.
In fact, Swami Vivekananda was not only a saint, a great philosopher, a great patriot, thinker, and writer and He was an outspoken opponent of religious fanatics and orthodoxy.
Moreover, I only thought spiritually by keeping religion at the centre of human service. Distressed to see the poignant condition of the country and the people here,
Swamiji had once made a rebellious statement that thirty-three hungry,
Poor and malnourished people in this country were installed in temples as deities.
Go and remove idols from temple deities.
Moreover Vivekananda believed that the understanding of the ideas of the best thinkers of Hinduism remains a matter of envy for everyone.
Then had understood the needs of people from all corners of the world,
That was the reason why when he spoke about spirituality in America and Europe,
He used to talk about development in India.
Talk About Development In India.
So he knew that there is material development abroad and that India needs it,
but he did not seek that development and prosperity but supported it on his own.
Swamiji believed that we have much more than the countries of the West and what we can give them, but for this,
We must first develop our resources.
As well as, In the course of this development, Swamiji wanted a great contribution from the youth of the country. Therefore, he had opposed the Macaulay educational system in the country,
He used to say that the purpose of this educational system is only to increase the number of babus.
Then Vivekananda was an advocate of such an educational system in the country
That could lead to the comprehensive development of the country’s children and youth.
He considered practical education as useful rather than theoretical education,
He considered practical education as the greatest source of self-confidence along with character building.
Just a few days ago, our Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the date of September 11 in the
United States will always be remembered for two important events.
As well as he said that on this date, there were two explosions in the United States in two centuries,
One explosion was for the welfare of humanity and the other explosion to tarnish humanity, on the contrary.
The clearest sign of Narendra Modi was the world-famous speech delivered on September 11, 1893,
In Chicago to Swami Vivekananda, while, on the other hand, there was a terrorist attack on September 11, 2001,
At the World Trade Center in New York.
So I hope you enjoyed this Vivekananda whole life story. According to me, Swami Vivekananda is a great and inspirational personality, so his life story inspired us.we are lucky swami Vivekananda is Indian personality.
As well as Swami Vivekananda was a spiritual guru and social reformer. Swami Vivekananda worked tirelessly to remove anomalies like priesthood, Brahminism, religious rituals etc. He has always been an inspiration to youth.
