Who was Narendranath Datta? The Vivekananda Story

He spoke about building a New India and gave voice to the idea of Indian nationalism. The 19th century monk, whose birthday India celebrates as National Youth Day, would have turned 157 today.

    It is unfortunate that equates Swami Vivekananda's universal message of love with the Hindu Nationalism propagating hate since 1923. Neither Savarkar nor Golwalkar ever claimed they had been inspired by the Swami. If you know history, you would know that in the political field, it was Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose who really applied the ideas of Swami Vivekananda.

    Vivekanand was a confused soul due to the learning of the INDIAN Hindu scriptures! It was this knowledge of information caused his inner soul of purity to be currupt! He knew people are unhappy, dwelling in sorrow & something must be done to pull them out of MISARY! How to do that? The tract of the course he was not knowing. Many like him lost to this terrible inflictions due to scriptures! The Jain, Boudh, Christian, Muslims, Hindu....all lost to the scriptures, propogating some marginal good things; but cruelty, vengeance, robbery & bloodshed was their primary fundamental teachings.

    Around 1900 he remarked that Kerala was a lunatic asylum, mocking the untouchability and caste system of Kerala. But now, Kerala became modern, thanks to the activities of the political parties and some religious men. However, the rest of India, except the North East (excluding Assam), is now a big LUNATIC ASYLUM!!

    I like his teachings but he was not a good student. Look at his percentage of marks in BA and schools all below 60 percent. But he was a great spiritual leader that's why we respect him.

    He was a chain smoker and excessively indulged in fatty food including non-vegetarian ones - two reasons that compounded his subsequent health hazard. Owing to his unwillingess to forgo these pleasures his critics constantly ridiculed his Sannyasa as sham. But his charm, his proficiency in English and extensive knowledge in Vedantic philosophy earned him a following unlike any other seer of his times.
