Slide 1: VIVEKA VANI Swamiji’s Divine Message for
the Youth Slide 2: We are what out thoughts have made us;
so take care about what you think.
Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far. THOUGHTS Slide 3: When an idea exclusively occupies the mind, it is transformed in to
an actual physical or mental state. CONCENTRATION Slide 4: How has all the knowledge in the world been gained but by the concentration of the
powers of the mind? The world is ready to give up its secret if we only know how
to knock, how to give it the necessary blow. The strength and force of the blow
come through concentration. There is no limit to the power of the human mind.
The more concentrated it is, the more power is brought to bear on one point,
That is the secret. CONCENTRATION Slide 5: Even a fool can accomplish a task if it were
after his or her heart. But the intelligent ones
are those who can convert every work into
one that suits their heart. COMMITMENT Slide 6: 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 the way to“SUCCESS”.
And this is the way great spiritual giants
Others are mere talking machines. GOAL Slide 7: EDUCATION Education
is the manifestation of perfection
already in man. Slide 8: Every duty is holy, and devotion to duty is the highest form of the worship of God. When you are doing any work, do not think of anything beyond. Do it as worship,
As the highest worship, and devote your whole life to it for the time being. WORK Slide 9: Get up, and put your shoulders to the wheel – how long is this life for?
As you have come to this world, leave some mark behind. Otherwise,
where is the difference between you and the trees and stones? They too
Come into existence, decay and die. ACT Slide 10: We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish to be.
We have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the
result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be
in future can be produced by our present actions.
So we have to know how to Act. ACTION Slide 11: Neither money pays, nor name,
nor fame, nor learning,
it is CHARACTER
that can cleave through adamantine
walls of difficulties. CHARACTER Slide 12: Be not afraid of anything. You will do marvelous work. The moment you fear, you
are nobody. It is fear that is the great cause of misery in the world. It is fear that is
the greatest of all superstitions. It is fear that is the cause of our woes, and it is
fearlessness that brings heaven even in a moment. Therefore, ‘Arise, awake, and
stop not till the goal is reached. FEAR & FEARLESSNESS Slide 13: If you think that the infinite power,
infinite knowledge,and indomitable energy
lie within you, and if you can bring out that power,
You also can be like Me. Slide 14: All the strength and succor you want is within yourselves. Therefore make your own
future. ‘let the dead past bury its dead’. The infinite future is before you, and you
must always remember that each word, thought, and deed, lays up a store for you
and that, as the bad thoughts and bad works are ready to spring upon you like
tigers, so also there is the inspiring hope that the good thoughts and good deeds
are ready with the power of a hundred thousand angels to defend you always and
for ever. FUTURE Slide 15: Society does not go down because of the activities of criminals,
But because of the inactivities of the good people. Slide 16: The earth is enjoyed by ‘Heroes’. This is the unfailing Truth.
Be a Hero. Always say I have no Fear. Slide 17: It is good to be born a child;
but bad to remain a child MATURITY Slide 18: FEARLESSNESS If there is one word that you find coming out like a bomb from the Upanishads
bursting like a bomb shell upon masses of ignorance, it is the word “Fearlessness”.
and the only religion that ought to be taught is the religion of fearlessness. It is fear
that brings misery, fear that brings death, fear that breeds evil. And what causes
fear? Ignorance of our real nature. Slide 19: A few whole hearted, sincere, energetic
men and women can do more in a year
than a mob in a century. Slide 20: My children must be ready to jump into fire, if needed, to accomplish their work.
Now Work, Work, Work! We will stop and compare notes later on.
Have patience, perseverance and purity.
India wants the sacrifice of at least a thousand of her young men – men, mind
and not brutes. WORK
