Let's Celebrate Swami Vivekananda's Birthday On January 12th

Sudhir Parikh

In 1963, To commemorate  Swami Vivekanada Birth Centenary, RV Center of Rajkot published 12 small booklets, which heavily influence my thoughts.  I accepted him as my First Spiritual Guru!  His Quotes on Success transformed my meek nervous mind into Strong and Firm.  Besides, "Arise, Awake and Stop NOT till Goal is Achieved"  which comes from Kathopanisad, but he popularized it.  ONE I like the most is:
Each Soul is Potentially Divine, and purpose of life is to manifest that Divinity, thru Work (Karma Yoga), Worship (Bhakti Yoga), Psychic Control (Raj Yoga) and Philosophy (Gyaan Yoga) or Combination thereof and Be Free.   

Free from What?  All the dualities of life and attain Jivan Mukta State.  

Here are some of Popular Quotes which may inspire us to Live every moment in YOGA!    With Best Wishes!
