Great Thinkers on Swami Vivekananda
1.
 
Indira Gandhi:
My parents and especially my mother were very close with theRamakrishna Mission. And I must say that the teachings of Swami Vivekananda hadinspired all the members of the Nehru family both in their political activities and day-to-day lives...The single word which echoed and reached in all his speeches was Abhih i.e.Fearlessness.2.
 
Jawaharlal Nehru:
I do not know how many of the younger generation study thespeeches and writings of Swami Vivekananda. But I can tell you that many of my generation were very powerfully influenced by him and I think that it would do a great
deal of good to the present generation if they also went through Swami Vivekananda’s
 writings and speeches, and they would learn much from them. What Swamiji has written and said is of interest and must interest us and is likely toinfluence us for a long time to come. He was no politician in the ordinary sense of the word and yet he was, I think, one of the great founders
if you like, you may use any other word
of the national modern movement of India...Directly or indirectly he haspowerfully influenced the India of today.3.
 
Lal Bahadur Shastri:
I remember that in my student days I have read the speeches of the Swami and was deeply attracted to it. Its impact on my mind was so great that my perceptions were all changed, and I started to have a different idea about life...This sage-philosopher aroused the people...He wanted that the people of our country shouldembark on work and be active.4.
 
Mahatma Gandhi:
I have gone through Swami Vivekananda’s works very thoroughly,
and after having gone through them, the love that I had for my country became athousand fold.5.
 
Rabindranath Tagore:
 
 Vivekananda’s Gospel marked the awakening of man in his
fullness and that is why it inspired our youth to the diverse courses of liberation through work and sacrifice.
