Education is the key for all to open the door of our inner knowledge and make us come out of our ignorance. This is the strong basement which needs to be made perfect so that we all travel in a good and right path. With God's grace, I had a good basement from a school which was oriented with Swami Vivekanandha's sayings. We used to celebrate January 12, birthday of swami vivekandha, as a big day. We would be asked to deliver a speech about his sayings.
All his quotes were so inspiring. His sayings will be thought provoking. Everyone would be filled with cheerfulness and enthusiasm once we hear his inspirational quotes. Pessimistic thoughts will be vanished fully and will be replaced with optimistic thinking.
One of the quotes which I always love is "Arise, awake, and stop not till the goal is reached".
Each and every one has a goal set to us and we always will strive to attain that. But, we all are so sensitive and if we get even a small hindrance, we will not be in a position to continue in that path. This nature is too wrong and prevent us to succeed. We need to try, try until our goal is reached.
Each and every time when we fall, we need to arise. Awake all the time. Dream about our goal and strive to achieve it. Arise! Awake! Stand up and fight! Die if you must. Don't rely on others. There is no one to help us. We are the world. Arise, awake! Awake from this hypnotism of weakness.
Once after his trip to canada, Swami Vivekandha spoke to the people of India
"In other parts of India, there is intellect, there is money, but enthusiasm is only in my motherland. That must come out; therefore arise with enthusiasm in your blood. This not that you are poor, that you have no friends. A who ever saw money make the man? It is man that always makes money. The whole world has been made by the energy of man, by the power of enthusiasm, by the power of faith.
Therefore, let me conclude by reminding you once more, "Arise, awake and stop not till the desired end is reached." Be not afraid, for all great power. From out of their ranks have come all the greatest geniuses of the world, and history can only repeat itself. Be not afraid of anything. You will do marvellous 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." Source
Hence, there is no doubt that Swami Vivekanandha is called as youth icon. and also, his birthday is celebrated as National youth day.
