Saints associated with Sanatana Dharma never sought blind followers. Their sole aim was to initiate a discussion on a particular topic. They wanted each individual to arrive at a conclusion through a healthy debate. They wanted each individual to realize his/her potential. Swami Vivekananda was one such modern saint who kindled the passion of enquiry in the mind of people.
The ideal way or remember or honor a saint is by understanding his/her teachings. Swami Vivekananda has given his valuable opinion on several topics. It is for us to pick up these pearls of wisdom and apply it in our daily life. This can be done not just on his birthday but on all days of the year.
