Why the teachings of Swami Vivekananda even more relevant today

It was on 11th September 1893, while addressing the “World Religious brotherhood”, at Chicago Swami Vivekananda gave the call for “Universal brotherhood”. In that historical speech Swami Vivekananda had expressed apprehensions that the world would witness much bloodshed due to religious fanaticism in the years ahead. Almost 120 years after the great man’s historical speech, we find that his words and teachings are even more relevant today.

It is high time, the ignorant youths of the world and particularly that of India should be made aware of the teachings of “Nishkam Karmayoga” to enable them to come forward with unbiased and emancipated hearts to help the downtrodden an the needy, irrespective of caste, creed and religion. It is a matter of grave concern that the parents being ignorant themselves are failing to infuse the moral values and the teachings of Swami Vivekananda in their children.

Today when the world and particularly India is celebrating the great soul’s 150th birth anniversary, let us pledge to comprehend and spread his teachings with a a new zeal to make this world a better place to live in. Let us focus on ‘nation building’ and ‘man making’ as shown and taught by the great soul with renewed vigor and enthusiasm because that and only that will be our true “Tribute” to Swami Vivekananda.
