Swami Vivekananda Jayanti – 12 January
And for how long will you remain silent?
When Swami Vivekanand Ji was coming to India from abroad, two Christian missionaries in the vessel deliberately started discussing Hindu religion and Christianity with Swamiji. When both of them started beating in criticism, they started condemning Hindu religion and Hindus in extremely vulgar and vulgar language.
Swamiji kept on patience till he could but in the end he could not stay away. Swamiji suddenly grabbed the collar of the shirt of one of them and said with a firm voice: “If I condemn my religion, I will throw it down from the ship.” He said trembling to the Christian, “Please leave me again, I will never make such a mistake. After that, when I met Swamiji in the ship Vivekanand Ji said to Priyanath Singh:” Well, Singh! What would you do if someone insulted your mother? Priyanath Singh replied: “Sir! Grabbing his neck and giving him the proper punishment. Swamiji said:” It is a good thing. If you had the same devotion towards religion, you could never see a Hindu boy being a Christian, but nowadays, I am a Christian. You are sitting simple. Where did your piety go? Where did the affection for the country go? Every day these clergy people are abusing your religion in front of you, but how many have tried to counteract it? Dharmorakshati Rakshitah. ‘He who protects his religion remains protected. Keep in mind: In the name of tolerance, are we not filling the fault of cowardice and escapism in ourselves? (Lok Kalyan Setu: July 2003)
