28th January in Swami Vivekananda Life

28 January :

28 Jan 1893 : Madura Mail writes about Swami Vivekananda on The Vedic Religion: The perfect religion is the Vedic religion...Caste is a social organization and not a religious one. It was the outcome of the natural evolution of our society. It was found necessary and convenient at one time. It has served its purpose....
 
About His views on The Hindu Ideal of Life, it writes: ....Individuals and society have to work themselves up from "brute through man, into divine". Even the lowest of the Hindus, the Pariah, has less of the brute in him than a Briton in a similar social status. This is the result of an old and excellent religious civilization. This evolution to a higher spiritual state is possible only through discipline and education.
 
About Women's Education : Every man must so discipline his mind as to bring himself to regard all women as his sisters or mothers. Women must have freedom to read, to receive as good an education as men. Individual development is impossible with ignorance and slavery.
 
28 Jan 1897 : Swami Vivekananda at Rameswaram
 
28 Jan 1898 : Ms Margaret Noble reaches Kolkata to work for Bharat
