The philosophy of Swamiji and the ideals for which he lived and worked are a great source of inspiration for the Indian youth.
To honour one of the greatest philosophers and spiritual leaders the birth anniversary of SWAMI VIVEKANANDA is celebrated across India as NATIONAL YOUTH DAY . It also marks his ideas on how the young should participate in the modern world while upholding their values.
Vivekananda is credited with contributing to a revival of modern Hinduism and inspiring nationalist consciousness during colonial rule. But he is best known for his famous 1893 speech where he introduced Hinduism to the Western world in Chicago.
Vivekananda’s writings and teachings had an impact on many of India’s nationalist leaders, who were fighting against the colonial rule. Subhas Chandra Bose called Vivekananda “The maker of modern India” and Mahatma Gandhi credited Vivekananda’s with increasing his “Love for his country a thousandfold”.
