Revolving around 12th Jan’12…



        The day of 12th Jan’2012 already passed with some marks as usual day, pride of ‘ National Youth Day’ and celebrating 150th Birth Anniversary of a Genius & commanding personality Swami Vivekananda, born on 12th. Jan'1863 in West Bengal, India.

        Now, I prefer to take you in the ambit of Swami Vivekananda and his own statement of account, who was genuinely a great achiever, philosopher, academician, inspirational thinker, and spiritual leader. It is Shri Ramakrishna as ‘Master’ or ‘Guru’ gave him the God vision and transformed him to a sage & prophet with authority to teach what he follows to the best possible ways and means… that everyone is aware.

        You are also aware, of the great speech of Swami Vivekananda on Hinduism at Chicago’s Parliament of Religion in 1893, which makes our country proud.
        But, in the year 1899 during second visit to America engaged in academic activities… written, given speaks & taken classes to teach Vedanta Philosophy like other science subjects.

        What was his actual intension, could have remained undiscovered, if on 27th Jan’1890 (i.e. 112 years before) Mrs. Bowler the then President of Shakespeare Club, do not questioned him at the city of Pasadena, California, America, during attending a lecture session… 

         Mrs.Emeline Bowler asked during the programme day… You used to deliver lecture... actually what is your work? What is your life’s mission and how do you what to achieve it?


         Swami Vivekananda replied…
“My mission is million & million of peoples…must have a better piece of bread and a better piece of rag on their bodies”.

        Reasonably, everyone present there was considerably surprised, because he is known as Religious leader at his Country and academic philosopher to the rest of the World. What! His mission is not as religious campaigner & organizer, but wish to render for countrymen hunger and wearing.

        Then how his life ambitious can be fulfilled and how India’s common citizen will have food & cloth?...
        He himself has given the answer going to the route of the problem, “Indian peoples a practical want of intellectual education about life on this earth”. That needs to be arranged.

        But how?... It’s by “Opening schools”. According to his opinion…opening & operating school can’t ensure education! …Because, “The boy of 4/6 years would better go to the plough or to work, then to your school”. Then?... “If a ploughman’s boy cannot come to education, why not meet him at the plough, at the factory, just wherever he is, go along with him… like his shadow”…

        Who will go? Who will teach them?

        His reply was more out bursting!...” I must tell you that am not a very great believer in monastic system”. An astonished statement!…adjoined...
        “There must be centre’s to educate these monks in the method of education and that teaching requires tremendous centre’s… means teachers, training and for that need strength of money”.

        For the development & progress of the country Swami Vivekananda laid his plan in easy terms…
        Investment for establishment of quality Institution; creating good teachers, those teachers to be send to the each students; children should be given practical education; that education will help to give earning ability; lakhs of people will get good food & cloths...

        He started the work and said!...“I am glad to tell you I have a rude beginning”, but can’t finish, within two & half years the great soul left the body as on 4th July’ 1902... being only 39Y-5M-24days...      

        The most important task seems incomplete after more than hundred years, rather 112 years…
        We all pray him, believe his philosophy, support him…But don’t know why we not yet understand his plan of action…i.e. create good teachers and give practical education…then progress will certainly come…as pronounced by the Great Swami Vivekananda, 112 years back! even relevant today...

        Let’s revolve around this central idea… and seek change the present approach. Where a teacher with initial profile & dependency on such qualification, in general leading a carrier of 35 years education to children’s…


        My approach to this post is to simply generate awareness... Thanks!
