SWAMI VIVEKANANDA WRITES AND INSPIRES US

SWAMI VIVEKANANDA
Swami Vivekananda’s letters radiate power and give inspiration. To study his letters means to bathe in the surging sea of strength and faith. One can imbibe his spirit and fervour by going through his letters with earnestness. He himself made this explicit in one his pulsating letters.

Swami Vivekananda once wrote: “I only tell you this, that whoever reads this letter will imbibe my spirit! Have faith!... I feel as if somebody is moving my hand to write in this way.…” Once he assured: “I shall inspire men everywhere, until the world shall know that it is one with God.” 

Swami Vivekananda wrote many hundreds of letters to friends, disciples, brother disciples etc. They are more relevant than ever. We all may treat the letters as addressed to us individually and get benefited . Here selected portions of the letters will be posted regularly.

LETTER NO.: 1

My dear ..........*,

           …A word for you. Remember always... Be moral. Be brave. Be a heart - whole man. Strictly moral, brave unto desperation. Don't bother your head with religious theories. Cowards only sin, brave men never, no, not even in mind. Try to love anybody and everybody. Be a man and try to make those immediately under your care, … brave, moral, and sympathising. No religion for you, my children, but morality and bravery. No cowardice, no sin, no crime, no weakness -- the rest will come of itself.

Yours affectionately,
Vivekananda.

*[You may treat this letter as if addressed to you]
