Political greatness or military power is never the mission of our race(India). it never was, and, mark my words, it never will be. But there has been the other mission given to us, which is to conserve, to preserve, to accumulate,as it were, into a dynamo, all the spiritual energy of the race, and that concentrated energy is to pour forth in a deluge on the world whenever circumstances are propitious – Swamiji
One day the editor of a newspaper Sakharam Ganesh came to meet Swamiji with some friends to discuss about religion. One of them from punjab. Swamiji started asking about punjab and its conditions and discussion diverted to nationalism and other issues faced by India.When the guests about to leave, the punjabi friend said, Swamiji, We came to you with the hope of discussing religion with you but unfortunately we only discussed general topics.
Swamiji became serious and replied. “Dear, as long as even a single dog in my country is hungry, my religion will be to give him food. Doing anything else would be irreligious”.
What a perception about religion. We salute you master
