150th Birth Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda

On Sunday January 12th, 2014, the 150th Birth Anniversary celebrations was held at Periyar Park in Vellore.
Swami Vivekananda is regarded as a patriotic saint and his birthday is celebrated as National Youth Day in India.


 
 

Swami Vivekananda was born into an aristocratic Bengali family of Kolkata and was drawn towards spirituality and his guru Ramakrishna, from whom he learnt that all living beings were an embodiment of the divine self; therefore, service to God could be rendered by service to mankind.

He was a major force in the revival of Hinduism in India and was a key figure in the introduction of the Indian philosophies of Vedanta and Yoga to the Western world. He travelled to the United States, representing India at the 1893 Parliament of the World Religions. Vivekananda conducted hundreds of public and private lectures and classes on Hindu philosophy in the United States, England and Europe.
