“My whole ambition in life is to set in motion a machinery which will bring noble ideas to the door of everybody, and then let men and women settle their own fate. Let them know what our forefathers as well as other nations have thought on the most momentous questions of life”

“For a complete civilization the world is waiting, waiting for the treasures to come out of India… for the marvelous spiritual inheritance of that race… little do you know how much of hunger and of thirst there is outside of India for these wonderful treasures of our forefathers… stretching forth their hands for a little sip of that nectar which our forefathers have preserved in this land of India”

It behoves us, therefore, to reverentially study the glorious spiritual heritage of our own country before we can distribute ‘that nectar’ to others

“It is the culture of the heart, really, and not that of the intellect that will lessen the misery of the world”  

:-Swami Vivekananda

Courses on Sri Ramakrishna and Sri Maa Sarada

শ্রী মা সারদা - জীবনী ও বাণী
(Sri Maa Sarada - Life & Teachings)

“Ramakrishna – Vivekananda – these two lives are the unity of India. All that is necessary is that India should keep them in her heart.”

“Yet again shall come the great re-establishment of Dharma, when the whole of this nation shall be united together, not in a common weakness, not in a common misfortune or grievance, but in a great, overflowing, complex, actual, ever-strong, ever-living consciousness of the common nationality, the common heritage, the common struggle, aye! the common destiny and the common hope”  :–Sister Nivedita

Courses on Scriptures

“Two ideals of truth are in our scriptures; the one is, what we call the eternal, and the other is not so authoritative, yet binding under particular circumstances, times, and places. The eternal relations which deal with the nature of the soul, and of God, and the relations between souls and God are embodied in what we call the Shrutis, the Vedas. The next set of truths is what we call the Smritis, as embodied in the words of Manu. Yâjnavalkya, and other writers and also in the Purânas, down to the Tantras. The second class of books and teachings is subordinate to the Shrutis, inasmuch as whenever any one of these contradicts anything in the Shrutis, the Shrutis must prevail. This is the law. The idea is that the framework of the destiny and goal of man has been all delineated in the Vedas, the details have been left to be worked out in the Smritis and Puranas.”      :— Swami Vivekananda

Taittiriya Upanisad

“The methods of attaining the end of religion are called Yoga by us, and the different forms of Yoga that we teach, are adapted to the different natures and temperaments of men. We classify them… under four heads… These are all different roads leading to the same centre—God.” :– Swami Vivekananda

“…there have been great world-moving sages, great Incarnations of whom there have been many; and according to the Bhâgavata, they also are infinite in number, and those that are worshipped most in India are Râma and Krishna. ”    :– Swami Vivekananda

Rama, the ancient idol of the heroic ages, the embodiment of truth, of morality, the ideal son, the ideal husband, the ideal father, and above all, the ideal king… “

:– Swami Vivekananda


Valmiki, Adhyatma, Tulsidas

“…You may exhaust the literature of the world that is past, and I may assure you that you will have to exhaust the literature of the world of the future, before finding another Sita. Sita is unique; that character was depicted once and for all.”

:– Swami Vivekananda

Srimad Bhagavatam

“The other Incarnations were but parts of the Lord. He, Krishna, was the Lord Himself.” … He was the most wonderful Sannyasin, and the most wonderful householder in one; he had the most wonderful amount of Rajas, power, and was at the same time living in the midst of the most wonderful renunciation…” :– Swami Vivekananda

Other Courses

“Sanskrit is the divine language.”

“The very sound of the Sanskrit is musical.”

“Sanskrit and prestige go together in India. The very sound of Sanskrit words gives a prestige and a power and a strength to the race.”

:– Swami Vivekananda
