Swami Vivekananda: An Indian Monk

Master Vivekananda is perhaps the best priest of India and the organizer of the Ramakrishna Mission. He is viewed as a significant figure in presenting Yoga and Vedanta in America and Europe and in carrying Hinduism to the situation with a world religion towards the finish of the nineteenth century. Vivekananda was brought into the world as Narendranath Dutta to Visvanath Dutta and Bhubaneshwar Devi on 12 January 1863 in Kolkata. He finished his essential schooling at Sri Eswar Chandra Vidya Sagar. He finished his auxiliary schooling of three years in only one year and dropped with unique excellence. He joined the school at 16 years old years and contemplated reasoning and rationale. In 1880 Vivekananda joined the Arts workforce of Presidency College and considered English, Mathematics, History, Psychology, Philosophy, and Logic for his graduation. He had a decent voice and had an unmistakable fascination for music and drawing.

Vivekananda was striking and attractive. His authority over the English language assisted him with being an expressive speaker. Since youth Vivekananda was slanted towards mysticism. He went to Dakshineswar Kali sanctuary to meet Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa to see if God truly existed or not. Once, Naren, as he was famously known, sang some reverential melodies in line with Sri Ramakrishna. The holy person on hearing his melodies went into a daze where he had the option to meet god. Vivekananda was enormously propelled by Sri Ramakrishna and turned into his adherent. After the destruction of his dad, Vivekananda took up an educator's responsibility to help his family. Sri Ramakrishna kept on being in contact with Vivekananda and blessed him with all his profound powers and made him his replacement. Vivekananda turned into a 'Sanyasi' (priest) and took up the name 'Master Vivekananda'.
