Chapter :

India’s Regeneration

An interpretation of:

“I am thoroughly convinced that no individual or nation can live by holding itself apart from the community of others.. .. Give and take is the law; and if India wants to raise herself once more, it is absolutely necessary that she brings out her treasures and throws them broadcast among the nations of the earth, and in return be ready to receive what others have to give her.”

– Swami Vivekananda

About this Channel: Interpreting Vivekananda

Swami Vivekananda matters to us.

More than 100 years ago, Swami Vivekananda foresaw a world that was global, integrated, and rapidly transforming. And he offered a set of prescriptions for not just surviving but thriving in such a changing world.

His prescriptions addressed a range of human and social maladies, chief among which was the challenge of empowerment of the weak & oppressed, of women, and of those caught on the wrong side of the power & wealth divide in society.

His principles were less understood 100 years ago, but are likely to be better understood in today’s world, and include within their scope many ideas with contemporary relevance such as a new vision of education built around infinite human potential,meaning and fulfillment in human life, citizenship in Indian society, enlightened work along the lines of the Bhagavad Gita, enlightened institutions that server larger societal purposes, and a focus on human beings beyond technology and economic considerations
