  • 1. INSPIRING THOUGHTS OF SWAMI VIVEKANANDA ON POWERS OF THE MIND Submitted by Prof. V. Viswanadham
  • 2. Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.
  • 3. All the great prophets, saints, and seers of the world – what did they do? In one span of life, they lived the whole life of humanity, … In one life, they perfect themselves; they have no thought for anything else, … and thus the way is shortened for them. That is what is meant by concentration, intensifying the power of assimilation, thus shortening of the time.
  • 4. The more this power of concentration, the more knowledge is acquired, because this is the one and only method of acquiring knowledge.
  • 5. How has all the knowledge in the world been gained but by the concentration of the powers of the mind? The world is ready to give up its secrets … There is no limit to the power of the human mind. The more concentrated it is, the more power is brought to bear on one point; that is the secret.
  • 6. No force can be created; it can only be directed. … Thus it is clearly seen that chastity is the cornerstone of all morality and of all religion.
  • 7. The mind uncontrolled and unguided will drag us down, down, forever – rend us, kill us; and the mind controlled and guided will save us, free us.
  • 8. The main difference between the men and the animals is the difference in their power of concentration. The difference in their power of concentration also constitutes the difference between man and man.
  • 9. Ninety per cent of thought-force is wasted by the ordinary human being, and therefore, he is constantly committing blunders; the trained man or mind never makes a mistake.
  • 10. Good and evil thoughts are each a potent power, and they fill the universe. As vibration continues, so thought remains in the form of thought until translated into action.
  • 11. If we make ourselves pure and the instruments of good thoughts, these will enter us.
  • 12. In the history of mankind, you will find that there come the Messengers, … When they speak, each word is direct; it bursts like a bomb-shell. What is in the word, unless it has the Power behind?
  • 13. Whatever you do, devote your whole mind, heart, and soul to it.
  • 14. It is our mental attitude which makes the world what it is for us. Our thoughts make things beautiful, our thoughts make things ugly. The whole world is in our minds. Learn to see things in the proper light.
