Swami Vivekananda Motivational Quotes | Vivekananda, original name Narendranath Datta, Datta also spelled Dutt, (born January 12, 1863, Calcutta [now Kolkata] A spiritual genius of commanding intellect and power,

In 1886, Vivekananda renounced the world and crisscrossed India as a wandering monk. He was more than just a spiritual mind; he was a prolific thinker, great orator, and passionate patriot.

He excelled in his studies and was active in sports, gymnastics, wrestling, and bodybuilding. He was an avid reader and read up on almost everything under the sun.

He spread the Vedanta philosophy and religion in America and England for three years and then returned to India to found the Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission.

Swami Vivekananda‘s inspiring personality was well known in India and America during the last decade of the nineteenth century and the first decade of the twentieth. In America, Vivekananda’s mission was to interpret India’s spiritual culture, especially in its Vedantic setting.

Most of the Vedanta Societies, founded in America and Europe through the 1930s, can trace their origins directly to Swami Vivekananda or the people who heard him speak from 1893 through 1900.

Swami Vivekananda had predicted that he would not live till the age of forty. On July 4, 1902, he went about his days’ work at the Belur Math, teaching Sanskrit grammar to the pupils.

He retired to his room in the evening and died during meditation at around 9. He has attained ‘Mahasamadhi,’ and the great saint has cremated on the Banks of river Ganga.
