VIVEKA VANI Swamiji’s Divine Message for  the Youth
We are what out thoughts have made us;  so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far. THOUGHTS
When an idea exclusively occupies the mind, it is transformed in to  an actual physical or mental state. CONCENTRATION
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 secret if we only know how to knock, how to give it the necessary blow. The strength and force of the blow  come through concentration. 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. CONCENTRATION
Even a fool can accomplish a task if it were after his or her heart. But the intelligent ones are those who can convert every work into  one that suits their heart. COMMITMENT
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 the way to“SUCCESS”.  And this is the way great spiritual giants  are produced. Others are mere talking machines. GOAL
EDUCATION Education  is the manifestation of perfection  already in man.
Every duty is holy, and devotion to duty is the highest form of the worship of God. When you are doing any work, do not think of anything beyond. Do it as worship, As the highest worship, and devote your whole life to it for the time being. WORK
Get up, and put your shoulders to the wheel – how long is this life for? As you have come to this world, leave some mark behind. Otherwise, where is the difference between you and the trees and stones? They too Come into existence, decay and die. ACT
We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish to be. We have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the  result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions. So we have to know how to Act. ACTION
Neither money pays, nor name,  nor fame, nor learning,  it is CHARACTER  that can cleave through adamantine  walls of difficulties. CHARACTER
Be not afraid of anything. You will do marvelous work. The moment you fear, you are nobody. It is fear that is the great cause of misery in the world. It is fear that is  the greatest of all superstitions. It is fear that is the cause of our woes, and it is  fearlessness that brings heaven even in a moment. Therefore, ‘Arise, awake, and stop not till the goal is reached. FEAR & FEARLESSNESS
If you think that the infinite power,  infinite knowledge,and indomitable energy  lie within you, and if you can bring out that power,  You also can be like Me.
All the strength and succor you want is within yourselves. Therefore make your own future. ‘let the dead past bury its dead’. The infinite future is before you, and you must always remember that each word, thought, and deed, lays up a store for you and that, as the bad thoughts and bad works are ready to spring upon you like tigers, so also there is the inspiring hope that the good thoughts and good deeds are ready with the power of a hundred thousand angels to defend you always and for ever. FUTURE
Society does not go down because of the activities of criminals, But because of the inactivities of the good people.
The earth is enjoyed by ‘Heroes’. This is the unfailing Truth. Be a Hero. Always say I have no Fear.
It is good to be born a child;  but bad to remain a child MATURITY
FEARLESSNESS If there is one word that you find coming out like a bomb from the Upanishads bursting like a bomb shell upon masses of ignorance, it is the word “Fearlessness”. and the only religion that ought to be taught is the religion of fearlessness. It is fear that brings misery, fear that brings death, fear that breeds evil. And what causes  fear? Ignorance of our real nature.
A few whole hearted, sincere, energetic men and women can do more in a year than a mob in a century.
My children must be ready to jump into fire, if needed, to accomplish their work. Now  Work, Work, Work! We will stop and compare notes later on. Have patience, perseverance and purity. India wants the sacrifice of at least a thousand of her young men – men, mind and not brutes. WORK
