Inspiring Thoughts of Swami Vivekananda on Serve Man As God Part 4

  1. 1. INSPIRING THOUGHTS OF SWAMI VEVEKANANDA SERVE MAN AS GOD Submitted by Prof. V. Viswanadham Part - 4 Inspiring Thoughts of Swami Vivekananda on Serve Man as God ~ Part - 4
  2. 2. Inspiring Thoughts of Swami Vivekananda on Serve Man as God ~ Part - 4 Know that the mind which is born to succeed joins itself to a determined will and perseveres. … Live in the midst of the battle of life. Anyone can keep calm in a cave or when asleep. Stand in the whirl and madness of action and reach the Centre. If you have found the centre, you cannot be moved.
  3. 3. Inspiring Thoughts of Swami Vivekananda on Serve Man as God ~ Part - 4 A hundred thousand men and women, fired with the zeal of holiness, fortified with eternal faith in the Lord, and nerved to lion’s courage by their sympathy for the poor and the fallen and the downtrodden, will go over the length and breadth of the land, preaching the gospel of salvation, the gospel of help, the gospel of social raising up – the gospel of equality.
  4. 4. Inspiring Thoughts of Swami Vivekananda on Serve Man as God ~ Part - 4 My boy, if you have any respect for my words, the first thing I will advise you to do is to throw open all the doors and windows of your room. In your quarter there are lots of poor people sunk in degradation and misery. You will have to go to them and serve them with your zeal and enthusiasm. … if you begin to serve y our brethren in this way, I tell you, my child, you will surely get peace and consolation.
  5. 5. Inspiring Thoughts of Swami Vivekananda on Serve Man as God ~ Part - 4 Where is that martial spirit which, at the very outset, requires one to know how to serve and obey, and to practice self-restraint? The martial spirit is not self-assertion, but self-sacrifice. One must be ready to advance and lay down one’s life at the word of command, before he can command the hearts and lives of others. One must sacrifice himself first.
  6. 6. Inspiring Thoughts of Swami Vivekananda on Serve Man as God ~ Part - 4 It is fear alone that is death. You have to go beyond all fear. So from this day, be fearless. Off at once, to lay your life for your own liberation and for the good of others.
  7. 7. Inspiring Thoughts of Swami Vivekananda on Serve Man as God ~ Part - 4 Trust not to the so-called rich, they are more dead than alive. The hope lies in you – in the meek, the lowly, but the faithful. Have faith in the Lord. … Feel for the miserable and look up for help – it shall come.
  8. 8. Inspiring Thoughts of Swami Vivekananda on Serve Man as God ~ Part - 4 The history of the world is that of six men of faith, six men of deep pure character. We need to have three things: the heart to feel, the brain to conceive, the hand to work. Make yourself a dynamo. Feel for the world.
  9. 9. Inspiring Thoughts of Swami Vivekananda on Serve Man as God ~ Part - 4 Ask yourself, does your mind react in hatred or jealousy? Good works are continually being undone by the tons of hatred and anger which are being poured out on the world. If you are pure, if you are strong, you, one man, are equal to the whole world.
  10. 10. Inspiring Thoughts of Swami Vivekananda on Serve Man as God ~ Part - 4 Will such a day come when this life will go for the sake of others’ good? The world is not a child’s play – and great men are those who build highways for others with their heart’s blood.
  11. 11. Inspiring Thoughts of Swami Vivekananda on Serve Man as God ~ Part - 4 This is Part – 4, the concluding part of the Inspiring Thoughts of Swami Vivekananda on ‘Serve Man as God’, presented for your careful consideration. Please don’t read these thoughts in a hurry. That will not serve any purpose. Please read all the 4 parts. Read, and while reading ‘feel’; yes, whoever you are, feel like a human being, for the fellow humans. The purpose of service has been clearly explained; even doing your duty in a sincere manner will constitute serving Man, i.e. Serving God. Yes, one idea can change the world. The question is, are we ready and willing?
