It was his favorite pastime to hang upside down from that tree. One day when he climbed the tree, the old owner of the house came and said to him that the tree was inhabited by ghosts and one of them is Brahmadaitya.
If smiled and said, "Do not believe in everything that elders tell you, but also use your conscience.
But Swami Vivekanand had said, “Could mud be washed with mud? ” so he based his whole message on the philosophy of the existence of one reality, which is in every being.
Swami Vivekananda appeared in 1893, on the platform of the parliament of religious conference held at Chicago, as an unknown person, when he was less than thirty years of age. Then again he says, “My faith is in the younger generation, the modern generation, out of them will become my workers they will work out the whole problem.
Swami Vivekanand himself had said “it may be that I shall find it good to get outside my body to cast it off like a worn out garment but I shall not cease to work!
I shall inspire men everywhere, until the world shall know that it is one with god.”The process of this inspiration is spreading all over the world. The world is on the brink of total annihilation, and it is the message of Swami Vivekanand which can save humanity from a disastrous end.“Lives of great men all-remind us, we can make our lives sublime, and departing leave behind us, Footprints on the sands of time.”Swami Vivekananda represents the eternal youth of India.India though possessing a hoary and ancient civilisation is not old and effete, as her detractors would hold but Swami Vivekananda believed that she was young, ripe with potentiality and strong at the beginning of the twentieth century.Swami Vivekananda belonged to the 19th century, yet his message and his life are more relevant today than in the past and perhaps, will be more relevant in future because persons like Swami Vivekananda do not cease to exist with their physical death.Their influence and their thought, the work which they initiate, go on gaining momentum as years pass by, and ultimately, reach a fulfillment which these persons envisaged.He always used to say that he was a voice without form but, In his life, we see how he felt about the downtrodden, the untouchables.The poor, the miserable and the sole aim of his life was to bring about a social order which will be based on equitable distribution of the objects of enjoyment, a society without prejudice for any one.Always follow the truth without caring about the result.Very often you may have to suffer injustice or unpleasant consequences for holding to the truth; but you must not, under any circumstances, abandon it.' Many years later Narendranath proudly said to an audience, 'I am indebted to my mother for whatever knowledge I have acquired.'In his childhood, he used to climb a Champaka tree in his friend's house. That existence is first, last, and always; it is never lost but ever present."A spiritual genius of commanding intellect and power, Vivekananda crammed immense labor and achievement into his short life - 1863-1902. If I am evil, it is the existence first, and that becomes colored with the quality of badness.
