Sri Ramakrishna Vachansudha Launching Soon

September 5 , 2021

At the World’s Parliament of Religions, Chicago, on 11 th September, Swami Vivekananda delivered this memorable speech.  

Sisters and Brothers of America,

It fills my heart with joy unspeakable to rise in response to the warm and cordial welcome which you have given us. I thank you in the name of the most ancient order of monks in the world; I thank you in the name of the mother of religions; and I thank you in the name of the millions and millions of Hindu people of all classes and sects.

My thanks, also, to some of the speakers on this platform who, referring to the delegates from the Orient, have told you that these men from far-off nations may well claim the honour of bearing to different lands the idea of toleration. I am proud to belong to a religion which has taught the world both tolerance and universal acceptance. We believe not only in universal toleration, but we accept all religions as true. I am proud to belong to a nation which has sheltered the persecuted and the refugees of all religions and all nations of the earth. I am proud to tell you that we have gathered in our bosom the purest remnant of the Israelites, who came to southern India and took refuge with us in the very year in which their holy temple was shattered to pieces by Roman tyranny. I am proud to belong to the religion which has sheltered and is still fostering the remnant of the grand Zoroastrian nation. I will quote to you, brethren, a few lines from a hymn which I remember to have repeated from my earliest boyhood, which is every day repeated by millions of human beings: ‘As the different streams having their sources in different places all mingle their water in the sea, so, O Lord, the different paths which men take through different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to Thee.’

The present convention, which is one of the most august assemblies ever held, is in itself a vindication, a declaration to the world, of the wonderful doctrine preached in the Gita: ‘Whosoever comes to Me, through whatsoever form, I reach him; all men are struggling through paths which in the end lead to Me.’ Sectarianism, bigotry, and its horrible descendant, fanaticism, have long possessed this beautiful earth. They have filled the earth with violence, drenched it often and often with human blood, destroyed civilization, and sent whole nations to despair. Had it not been for these horrible demons, human society would be far more advanced than it is now. But their time is come; and I fervently hope that the bell that tolled this morning in honour of this convention may be the death-knell of all fanaticism, of all persecutions with the sword or with the pen, and of all uncharitable feelings between persons wending their way to the same goal.

  1. JAI SRI RAMAKRISHNA.

    SRI RAMAKRISHNA IS EMBODIMENT OF VEDAS ( RIG VEDA, YAJURVDA, SAMA VEDA AND ATHERVANA VEDA) AND ALSO UPNISHDAS. I STRONLY FEEL THE GOSPEL OF SRI RAMAKRISHNA ( SRI RAMAKRISHNA KATHA AMRITHAM) IS EQUELIVENT TO BHAGVATH GITA WHERE IN LOWEST ILLETRATE CAN ALSO WELL KNOWN THE SCRIPTICUTRE OF THE GOD. IN MY RECENT VISIT AT KHETRI ONE SWAMIJI NAMELY ASHOK MAHARAJ HAS GUIDED AND DIRECTED THAT ONE SHOULD ATELEAST READ ONE PAGE OR OTHERWISE ONE PARA, OR OTHERWISE ONE LINE OR OTHERWISE ATELEAST OPEN THE GOESPEL OF SRI RAMAKRISHNA BEFORE GOING TO BED WITH REMEMBERING THE HOLY TRIO. FURTHER I HAVE NOTICED ALSO THAT R.K.MISSION, KHETRI WHERE DAILY IT IS COMPULOSRY READING OF THE KATHAMRITHAM BY THE PUJARI MAHARAJ AFTER CONCLUSION OF ARTRAKIM AND READING IN HINDI IS MARVELIOUS AND TAKING ALL THEM TO DAKSHNIESWAR FOR A SHORT PERIOD.
    SWAMIJI IS EMBODIMENT OF SAKTI LIKE ADI SHANKER WITHIN SHORT SPAN OF LIFE BOTH HAVE COMPLETED ALL SCRIPTICURES AND DISTRIBUTED THE KNOWLEDGE TO ALL OVER WORLD.

    FINALLY SWAMIJI WORDS THAT ” I am proud to belong to a religion which has taught the world both tolerance and universal acceptance. We believe not only in universal toleration, but we accept all religions as true which more important now in the present situation where in day-by-day increasing the communal difference”.
    BUT IT IS SURE ONLY RAMAKRISHNA MOVEMENT ( I.E. R.K.MATH & MISSION) ONLY CAN LEAD ALL OVER WORLD TO THE ULTIMATE GOAL (EKAM SAT VIPRA BHUDAVADANTI)

    IF I EXPRESS ANY MISTAKES MAY KINDLY EXCUSE .
