Show heroism : Vivekananda Kendra News

वीरेश्वराय विद्महे विवेकानन्दाय धीमहि । तन्नो वीर: प्रचोदयात् ।
If we were to sum up Swamiji's teachings, we could say that he gave us one great Mantra : the Mantra of Faith in God, Faith in ourselves. Faith in oneself is based on that great Upanishadic truth which declares : "I am the Spirit. Me the sword can not cut; nor any weapon pierce; nor fire burn; nor air dry. I am omnipotent; I am omniscient". This is the Mantra, Swami Vivekananda was constantly dining into the ears of his countrymen. In whatever he spoke and preached, this Mantra was the refrain of his gospel-song. It is time that we grasped the inner meaning of this Truth and tried to live up to it. If we do that, no power on earth could harm us.
 
He further declares that in aspiring to attain moksha, we have to fulfil our Dharma first. In fact, there is no Moksha without Dharma. This is a truth which needed re-emphasis at a time when our religion tended to become life-weary. He rehabilitates a house-holder's life and gives it a new dignity. He reminds his countrymen of their Shastras which declare that only "heroes enjoy the world" and urge them to "show heroism".He asks us to remember that the Shastras enjoin upon us to accept the moral conditions under which we work and have to function. Only by such acceptance of our conditions and environment can we hope to improve them and raise them.

Therefore Swami Vivekananda exhorts his countrymen not to forget the Shastric injunctions: "Apply according to circumstances the fourfold political maxims of conciliation, bribery, sowing dissensions and open war to conquer your adversaries and enjoy the world - then you will be Dharmika. Otherwise you live a disgraceful life if you pocket your insults, when you are kicked and trodden down by any one who takes it into his head to do so; your life is a veritable hell here and so your life hereafter.
"
