1. What did Swami Vivekananda say about Gita?
We know Swami Vivekananda as a great Indian Spiritualist and one of the greatest preachers of core values of Hinduism. He wanted youth to be strong enough to defend the Dharma. To follow one’s dharma is the greatest of all the virtues, say our Puranas.
Bud did Swami Vivekananda really say, playing football is better than studying Bhagavadgita? Of course he did. He did say that to be strong physically gets you rid of all the fears of this world. He meant that physical power lets you to defend yourself and cultivate fearlessness. As it has been said, A strong mind in a strong body, Swami Vivekananda preached both physical and intellectual health and strength.
His words are so true that today, the values are Hinduism are utterly ridiculed and we are in need of men and women, strong, both physically and intellectually to safeguard the core values of Hinduism and carry forward them to next generations.
