Famous Swami Vivekananda Quotes On Life Peace and Success

This is a compilation 50 Swami Vivekananda quotes that still inspire us today.

Swami Vivekananda was born on January 12, 1863, and died on July 4, 1902. He was a Hindu monk, philosopher, and author from India. He was a chief disciple of Ramakrishna.

He is credited with elevating Hinduism to the status of a major international religion in the late 19th century by introducing Indian teachings and practices such as Vedanta and Yoga to the Western world.

Vivekananda was a major force in India’s current Hindu reform movements, and he helped to shape the notion of nationalism in colonial India.

He represented India at the 1893 Parliament of the World’s Religions in Chicago. Following that, he gave hundreds of public and private lectures and seminars in the United States, England, and Europe to promote Hindu philosophy concepts. 

Vivekananda is considered a patriotic saint, and his birthday is observed as National Youth Day in India.
