The Gospel of Strength…(Words of Swami Vivekananda ji)

Men should be taught to be practical, physically strong. A dozen such lions will conquer the world, not millions of sheep. “

Hey/Namastey, thank you for visiting this page…This page would surely act as a tablet of strength, inspiration, energy and a ray of hope for many of us, who really need it and would understand the fiery words of Swami Vivekananda ji. My website the ‘soul to soul vibes’ cant be completed if it doesn’t provide a strength capsule for our souls, so, that’s why this page. I am hopeful that the writings & quotes of Swami Vivekananda ji would help you in the same manner as they have proved to be a life line for thousands of people till now.

“I want iron wills and hearts that do not know how to quake.”

“You may meditate on whatever you like , but I shall meditate on the hearts of a lion. that gives strength”

“Give me a few men and women who are pure and selfless and I shall shake the world.”

These are the words of the thundering monk Swami Vivekananda.

Swami Vivekananda had a momentous mission in his life. He wrote “I am to create a new order of humanity here who are sincere believers in God…”He wanted youths to come forward in large numbers. His language was fiery, and energy was his method of action. Accordingly he knew full well that only those in the flowers of youth can carry out his words. He had a different perception/ definition of ‘youth’ too that we shall see later on.

Now presenting some of the power capsules of his words here:

“Strength, strength, it is that we want so much in this life, for what we call sin and sorrow have all one cause, and that is weakness. With weakness comes ignorance, and with ignorance comes misery.”

“Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin-to say that you are weak.”

“All weakness, all bondage is imagination…Do not weaken!!…Stand up and be strong! that is all the religion I know.”

“Strength is the medicine for the world’s disease. Strength is the medicine which the poor must have when tyrannized over by the rich. Strength is the medicine that the ignorant must have when oppressed by the learned.”

“It is very easy to say, ‘hate nobody, resist not evil,’ but we know that kind of thing generally means in practice. When the eyes of society are turned towards us, we may make a show of non-resistance, but in our hearts it is canker all the time…This is hypocrisy and will serve no purpose”

Arise, Awake! Awake from this hypnotism of weakness. None is really weak; the soul is really infinite, omnipotent and omniscient. Stand up, assert yourself, proclaim the God within you, do not deny Him!! Too much of inactivity, too much of weakness, too much of hypnotism has been and is upon our race… De-hypnotize yourselves. The way to do that is found in your own sacred books. Teach yourselves. teach everyone his real nature, call upon the sleeping soul and see how it awakens. Power will come, glory will come, goodness will come, purity will come, and everything that is excellent will come when this sleeping soul is roused to self-conscious activity.
