Many leaders come and go but there are only certain leaders who create their long lasting impact on the lives of people. Not only the people of their generations but forthcoming generations also follow them and love to walk on their path. One such great leader is Swami Vivekananda, who gave rebirth to Hinduism.
Swami Vivekananda, a great saint and philosopher, by his revolutionary speech at the famous Chicago Parliament of Religions opened the doors of Hinduism in the west, awakened the Hindus at the international level and sowed the seeds of Nationalism in British era.
On the occasion of 125th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda historic speech let us remember the 15 golden rules of life which one should follow in his life
Love is the law of Life
The one, who loves, lives; while the selfish one dies as love is the law of life. So as you breathe to live, love for love’s sake as love is the only way to expansion.
It’s Your Outlook That Matters
It all depends upon you, how you visualize the things is how the things appear to you. If you see everything with positive outlook things will appear positive to you or vice versa. So improve your thought process and see things accordingly
Life is Beautiful
Understand that everything happens for a reason. Adopt nothing in the wrong perspective. Swami even said that try to find the beautiness in ugliness and interpret the evil things in the way as you have not yet understood it in the right light.
It’s the Way You Feel
As you feel, so you will be. It all depends on you. Feel like Christ and you will be a Christ; feel like Buddha and you will be a Buddha.
Set Yourself Free
Set yourself free from all the bindings around the world. Realize that there is God within you as well as in every other human being
Don’t Play the Blame Game: Condemn none
Don’t put the unnecessary blame on others. If you can help others it is really a great thing, if you cannot step back politely.
Money is only worth if it can help anyone in need otherwise it’s just a piece of paper which is futile.
Uphold Your Ideals
Our duty is to encourage everyone in his struggle to live up to his own highest ideal, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.
Listen To Your Soul
Your soul is your greatest teacher; your soul is your greatest healer. You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual.
The greatest religion is to be true to your own nature. Have faith in yourselves.
Nothing Is Impossible
Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. Don’t ever feel that you are weak.
You Have The Power
The whole universe is yours. It’s you who have covered your eyes that are not letting you watch anything and everything appears dark to you.
Learn Every Day
The goal of mankind is knowledge. You don’t have to search for knowledge, the power lies within you. What we say a man ‘knows,’ should, in strict psychological language, be what he ‘discovers’ or ‘unveils;’ what man ‘learns’ is really what he discovers by taking the cover off his own soul, which is a mine of infinite knowledge.
Never lie. Always walk on the path of truth. Everything can be sacrificed for truth, but truth cannot be sacrificed for anything.
All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind because oneness is the secret of everything.
