Moral: By Swami Vivekananda - I

Here i am sharing some of the morals from "The Voice of Vivekananda" book. Those who have not read it yet , can get his thoughts from here.

Here are few...
  1. Man comes from God in the beginning, in the middle he becomes man, and in the end he goes back to God.
  2. He is an Acharya through whom the Divine Power acts.
  3. According to Karma Yoga, the action one has done cannot be destroyed, until it has borne its fruit; no power in nature can stop it from yielding its results.
  4. Know it for certain that there is no greater Tirtha (holy spot) than the body of man. Nowhere else is the atman so manifest as here.
  5. This world i just a gymnasium in which we play; our life is an eternal holiday.
  6. Strength is the one thing needful. Strength is the medicine for the world's disease. And nothing gives such strength as the idea of Monism.
  7. Despondency is not religion whatever else it may be. By being pleasant always and smiling, it takes you nearer to God, nearer than any prayer.
  8. Any new discovery of truth does not contradict the past truth, but fits into it.
  9. Our King Janaka tilled the soil with his own hands, and he was also the greatest of the knowers of Truth, of his time.
  10. Not believing in the glory of our own soul is what the Vedanta calls atheism.
