Swami Vivekananda

"It may be that I shall find it good to get outside of my body -- to cast it off like a disused garment. But I shall not cease to work! I shall inspire men everywhere, until the world shall know that it is one with God."
The one theme of the Vedanta philosophy is the search after unity. The Hindu mind does not care for the particular; it is always after the general, nay, the universal. "what is it that by knowing which everything else is to be known." That is the one search. - Swami Vivekananda

This site does not affiliate to any Ashram or Temple in India or Abroad. It is just an attempt to bring the teachings and lectures of Swami Vivekanada to people who are intrested. When I read Leactures of Swami Vivekananda I was so impressed that I wanted others also to read them and this Site is result of that. Lectures have been taken from book by Advaita Ashrama 5 Dehi Entally Road Calcutta 700014 "Complete works of Swami Vivekananda" India. "Complete works of Swami Vivekananda" comes in many volumes and each volume cost around Rs 100.

Let us say that here is an infinite line amid darkness. We do not know see the line, but on it there is one luminous point which moves on. As it moves along the line, it lights up its different parts in succession, and all that is left behind becomes dark again. Our consciousness may well be linked to this luminous point. Its past experiences have been replaced by the present, or have become subconscious. We are not aware of their presence in us; but they are, unconsciously influencing our body and mind. Every movement that is now being made without the help of consciousness was previously conscious. Sufficient impetus has been given to it to work of itself.
Let us be at peace, perfect peace, with ourselves and give up our whole body and mind and everything as an eternal sacrifice unto the Lord. Instead of the sacrifice of pouring oblations into the fire, perform this one great sacrifice day and night - the sacrifice of your little self.
