Swami Vivekananda Quotes

“Condemn none: if you can stretch out a helping hand, do so. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless your brothers, and let them go their own way.” – Swami Vivekananda

World is made up up many characters. Some good, some bad & some a bit of both. Though the properties of various souls differ, at the end of the day what counts are their actions.

Life unfolds at its own unique pace. What may be classified as comfort for some can be horror for another. People are always involved in finding a way out of their day to day struggle.  Some help those required and some sit on a fence and spend their time  by passing on rudimentary comments and information instead of trying to help the person in need. They may or may not be in a position to offer serious help. But for such individuals the above words of Swami Vivekananda hold so very true.

Help someone if you can. Guide the person to the best of your ability. If you cannot then think good and move on. Ensure your actions help and not add to their existing woes.

Think on these words of Swami Vivekananda.

Where does the journey of a rain drop start,

Does it originate in the sky or within abyss of ever churning seas.

Does it rise from the ocean due to glory of majestic sun OR

Fall from sky due to its love for Mother Earth.

Does it run away with the free flowing stream OR

Sit gently atop a flowery dream.

Does it wonder whether it is going home,

Does it know it’s only part of a larger destiny at play.

Does it not bring to life a million dreams,

That knocks the doors of possibilities unseen.

Rain, a collection of countless drops, but each having a life of its own,

A voice of its own, a destiny of its own.

Some carry potential to break the dam,

Some to heal broken moments,

Some conceal the teary eyes,

And some grace the joyous hearts.

The possibilities are many, how can they be encompassed by mind,

Like the ocean you have to embrace them and make peace with ever flowing time.

Does it really matter where they originate,

Or only their journey matters.

Perhaps they have mastered the art of life and

Hence they choose to grace our mundane lives.

First Step

So many adventures in our life depend on taking that first step out of our comfort zone. Some bravely work on taking action and leading their lives but some simply fail to muster enough courage to take the first step.

Remember that the majestic sun doesn’t achieve its morning glory in an instant. It works through the gentle blissful morning and slowly but steadily achieves his potential of blazing glory. A flower doesn’t bloom in an instant but one petal at a time.

Many a times we spend time appreciating people who have achieved something in their lives or have lived a content life but don’t act on mustering courage or perseverance required to achieve that glory.

Always remember to take the first step – towards courage, life, adventure and make a difference.

Happy New Year

Life rolls on the wheels of days,

Like the glorious sun drawn on a chariot of fire.

Life filled with moments of various hues and emotion,

Like the rays of rising sun.

In these moments we live like kings & in some we wish we were born free,

Like the fearless winds gliding through the meadows.

Life sometimes brings rain with thunder,

At times she sprinkles millions joys of wonder.

Time goes on, gentle and steady fast,

In the process carving milestones for all.

Today is a day when a year ends,

Only to rise again tomorrow with the first ray of the glorious sun.

Wish you all a very Happy New Year,

Not just for tomorrow but for many that are to grace your life ever after.

Quotes on Courage


The greatest test of courage on earth is to bear defeat without losing heart – Robert Green Ingersoll

Courage is the capacity to confront what can be imagined. – Leo Rosten

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. – Winston Churchill
Courage is grace under pressure. – Ernest Hemingway
The opposite for courage is not cowardice, it is conformity. Even a dead fish can go with the flow. – Jim Hightower

Diwali Greetings


Light a lamp for the memories lost at the hands of fate,

And for the memories made on the paths of pain.

Light a lamp for the journeys made,

And for those that ended before taking a step.

Light a lamp for the love blessed,

And for the tears shed when it quietly walked away.

Light a lamp of hope for those lost in darkness,

To help them return from such perilous realm.


May the blessing of each lamp you lit spread the joy of happiness in your world and beyond,
Like the shine of morning sun at the cusp of glorious dawn.

On this blessed festival of Diwali resolve to brighten your life like the Syamantak,
To walk countless miles in the light of righteousness and inspire others to take their first.

Note : Syamantak – The most famous jewel of Hindu mythology.

This poem was first published in online magazine ‘Storizen‘.

Feel blessed,  for not only have you been gifted with the glory of life but also with the gracious blessings of making a choice in every moment of your life. Most of the times, we look at situations from our perspective only. Very rarely do we bother to devote precious resources of time and energy towards the lives of others. If we can widen our scope of understanding to include the lives of others then we can also help them with their pains & feel blessed in their happiness. When I say others, it not only includes human but also plants, trees, birds and animals. Make them a part of your world.

Be like the majestic Sun. By the very virtue of one of its may actions i.e. to glow in the best way possible, it helps in the sustenance of life on earth. The presence of Sun is of highest importance to carry out the day to day functioning of our lives as well as animals, birds and trees.

Don’t just act keeping your own selfish interests in mind. Share your joy, gifts, love, life with everyone. Spread some joy. Inspire others.

Strive to be like the majestic Sun. Let your existence & actions be the reason for inspiration and the cause for fountain of positivity in the lives of countless others.
