Swami Vivekananda Jayanti: Swami Vivekananda was a spiritual leader, philosopher and social reformist of the 18th century. He was born in present-day Kolkata into an aristocratic Bengali family on January 12, 1863. This year marks his 159th birth anniversary. He was a prolific thinker, a great orator and a passionate patriot.

His teachings inspired a lot of young Indians and brought a spiritual awakening in the 19th century, and so, his birth anniversary is also celebrated as National Youth Day. He was one of India’s leading thinkers who rediscovered Indian philosophy through ancient Hindu scriptures, under the mentorship of mystic and yogi Ramakrishna Paramahansa, and brought it into mainstream Indian thought.

Swami Vivekananda represented India and Hinduism at the Parliament of the World’s Religions in 1893. In remembrance of Swami Vivekananda, here are some of his inspiring quotes.
