Lessons from the life of a pious monk

It’s not every other day that the cosmos sees the nascence of spiritually immortal mortals. But when it does the entire human race looks up to the miracle with reverence.


SWAMI VIVEKANANDA – A virtuous monk, who shed ignorance to grace the greater calls of life, is the dynamic force driving the youth of today. A noble soul that was disheartened at a poverty stricken India went on to represent the nation in the Parliament of Religions. A ‘Messenger of Indian Wisdom to the World’, an ‘Orator by Divine Right’; call him by any name but the spell casted by his teachings continues to inspire generations together.

His teachings and words of wisdom will help you find solutions to your every day turmoil. His thoughts have the power to change the course of life. Here are a few enlightening thoughts:

“All power is within you. You can do anything and everything. Believe in that!”

Recall these words when life pulls you in like a quicksand and you slowly start giving in. When fearless Felix Baumgartner set the world record for skydiving, by breaking the sound barrier, it’s only because he believed he could do so. Imagine standing 39 km above the planet’s hemisphere and then jumping off the capsule, leaving the world awestruck!
There is nothing which is not attainable by the human mind. From discovering life on other planets to constructing sky-piercing Mega structures, nothing is impossible. All you have to do is believe that you have the power in you to do so!

“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, and live on that idea. This is the way to success.”

Men have risen from rags to riches only because they have contemplated on a goal in life. With perseverance and dedication they have made it to the top. Standing in front of your opponent’s post, your focus should be on striking a goal and not the crowd cheering behind. The moment you focus, positive energy gets streamlined and flows through your inner self which catapults you to success! Success comes with ease to those who dream, live and work steadfastly towards it!

“We are what our thoughts have made us. So take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live… they travel far.”

When evil thoughts engulf you, your actions will want to harm others around. It leads to a chain reaction which ends on a deleterious note. Make yourself a store house of positive thinking. Let it flow into others. It’s only when people around you are happy will you find space to explore the greater pleasures of life. Letting your thoughts stray will make it vulnerable to heinous speculations. Have control over what you think and see yourself transform from within!

Might sound extremely philosophical but just give it a try. On any given day just think good and do good. Say to yourself that this is going to be the best day of your life. Believe it or not it will definitely be one. Now try doing this for the 365 days of your life. What you get is a purer and stronger you! Life is all about finding and creating yourself. When you discover the purpose of your living, life takes a new meaning and direction.

Let us inculcate compassion for our fellow beings and strive for the prosperity of the entire human race!
