Love is God : : Vivekananda Kendra News


Love- Love is God : "None, O beloved, loves the husband for the husband's sake, but for the Self that is in the husband; none, O beloved, ever loves the wife for the wife's sake, but for the Self that is in the wife. None ever loves anything else, except for the Self." Even this selfishness which is so much condemned, is but a manifestation of same love. Stand aside from this play, do not mix in it, but see this wonderful panorama, this grand drama, played scene after scene, and hear this wonderful harmony; all are manifestation of the same love. Even in the selfishness, that self will multiply, grow and grow. That one self, the one man,  will become two selves when he gets married; several, when he gets children; and thus he grows until he feels the whole world as his Self, the whole universe as his Self. He expands into one mass of universal love, infinite love - the love that is God.                --Swami Vivekananda

स्मिता का फलितार्थ     

बचपन से मिले संस्कार, शिक्षा और संस्कृति के साथ संसार में कदम रखने वाला व्यक्ति, जब अच्छी-बुरी परिस्थितियों से गुजरता है, तो संसारी अनुभूतियों के साथ मिले अहं से उसका जो व्यक्तित्व बनाता है- वहीँ उसकी अस्मिता कहलाती है I अपने वज़ूद को कायम रखने के प्रयास में उसका अहंकारी हो जाना स्वाभाविक है और इसी के चलते अपने-अपने स्वार्थों के वशीभूत लोग, उसके प्रशंसक और निंदक हो जाते है I वाद-विवाद या बहस की जड़ें अपने-अपने अहं से खुराक लेती रहती हैं I आत्म-गौरव इसका सकारात्मक पक्ष है, तो झूठा अभिमान नकारात्मक पक्ष I सारा संसार इन दोनों पक्षों के बीच पेंडुलम की तरह झूलता रहता है I             विस्तृत

Facets of SWAMI VIVEKANANDA-II       

Of all the spiritual seers in the history of humanity Swami Vivekananda is unique. His was a mission set in a condition almost utterly negative all around. India was colonized by the British. Colonialism was seen as not just a political conquest but also as a socio-economic conquest and more importantly as a spiritual conquest of India by the West. The Western Imperialism justified and positioned itself as a civilizing mission of the dark-skinned pagan 'Hindoos'. On the other side India was suffering from the internal problems caused by social stagnation.            Read More
