Swami Vivekananda is an Universal Being and so also stands his Universal Messages.

His 150th Birth Anniversary Celebrations are observed from 2010 to 2014. Let us rekindle our aspirations and draw inspiration from his Life, Writings, Speeches,Stories etc. May He bless all .
Meddle not with so-called social reform, for
there cannot be any reform without spiritual reform first. Who told you that I
want social reform? Not I. Preach the Lord — say neither good nor bad about the
superstitions and diets. Do not lose heart, do not lose faith in your Guru, do
not lose faith in God. So long as you possess these three, nothing can harm
you, my child.
Yours with love and blessings,
Do not for a moment think the
"Yankees" are practical in religion. In that the Hindu alone is
practical, the Yankee in money-making,....Every work should be made thorough. .
. . You need not insist upon preaching Shri Ramakrishna. Propagate his ideas
first, though I know the world always wants the Man first, then the idea. . . .
Do not figure out big plans at first, but begin slowly, feel your ground, and
proceed up and up.
. . . Work on, my brave boys. We shall see the
Harmony and peace! . . . Let things slowly grow.
Rome was not built in a day.
Yours ever with blessings,
