Swami Vivekananda Jayanti 2019 Quotes: One of India’s most revered spiritual leaders, Swami Vivekananda was born in Kolkata on January 12, 1863, as Narendra Nath Datta. It was in 1887 that he along with other disciples of Ramakrishna Paramhansa took formal vows of sannyasa and renounced the worldly pleasures.
With a special interest in Western philosophy and history, he was often assailed by doubts about the existence of God. Through his speeches and lectures, Vivekananda tried to awaken the religious consciousness among people and also tried to uplift the downtrodden using the principles of practical Vedanta.
To take his message to a wider audience, Vivekananda also attended the World’s Parliament of Religions in Chicago in 1893. His iconic speech there that touched topics like universal acceptance, tolerance and religion, got him a standing ovation at the parliament.
