25th February in Swami Vivekananda Life

25 February :
 
25 Feb 1897 : Letter to Mrs Ole Bull
 
25 Feb 1898 : Took possession of the Belur land that the Math was ultimately built on.
 
Letter: Raja Pyari Mohan Mukherjee and Swami Ramakrishnananda
 
25 Feb 1899 : Lecture: "The Claims of Vedanta on the Modern World" in the Parliament of Religions at the Unitarian Church of Oakland, CA. (Oakland Enquirer report of this lecture) ..Where is the solution of this world? Those who look outside will never find it; they must turn their eyes inward and find truth. Religion lives inside. ..We know that in science as we increase the velocity, the mass decreases; and as we increase the mass, the velocity decreases. Thus we have matter and force. The matter, we do not know how, disappears into force, and force into matter. Therefore there is something which is neither force nor matter, as these two may not disappear into each other. This is what we call mind — the universal mind.
