As the name suggests, Vivekananda Darsanika Samajam was established with an aim of studying, assimilating and propagating the ‘life-giving, character-making and nation-building’ ideas and ideals embodied in the life and teachings of Swami Vivekananda, the great patriot saint and practical visionary of modern India and the supreme inspirer of her dormant national consciousness, among people in general, but youth in particular. Samajam has the patronage of Sri Ramakrishna Math and the encouragement and support of a large number of prominent persons from all walks of life. Read More

Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.
