CM Mamata Banerjee Pays Tribute to Swami Vivekananda

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of West Bengal commemorated the death anniversary of Swami Vivekananda, paying homage to his enduring legacy and teachings. Vivekananda, born Narendranath Datta, was revered for his role as a Hindu monk, philosopher, and key disciple of Ramakrishna.

Mamata Banerjee acknowledged Vivekananda’s profound impact on fostering a sense of national pride and unity among Indians, emphasizing his teachings of religious tolerance and universal love. She praised his contributions to Indian spirituality and philosophy, which extended globally with his introduction of Vedanta and Yoga to the Western world.

Swami Vivekananda’s historic speech at the 1893 Parliament of Religions in Chicago resonated deeply, where he eloquently introduced Hinduism and promoted interfaith harmony with his famous address, “Sisters and Brothers of America.”

Throughout his life, Vivekananda championed social reforms and founded institutions like the Ramakrishna Math and Mission, dedicated to spiritual education and humanitarian work across India. His advocacy for nationalism in colonial India remains a cornerstone of modern Indian philosophy.

CM Mamata Banerjee highlighted Vivekananda’s enduring relevance, particularly his teachings on inclusivity and the power of spiritual enlightenment. She called upon the people of West Bengal and beyond to embrace his ideals of unity and compassion, ensuring his legacy continues to inspire future generations as a beacon of enlightenment and social progress.
