He was born on 12 January 1863 on the day of Makar Sakranti in Calcutta and was named Narendranath Dutt. He was born into a prosperous family. His father was a lawyer in the Calcutta High Court and his mother's name was Bhuvaneshwari Devi.

Apart from Narendra Nath and four daughters, his father had two sons, two of whom died at an early age. Narendra was a very intelligent boy in childhood. He had a very strong memory. Therefore, at the age of eight, he was admitted to high school. His mother had a great influence on him.


She was a spiritual woman and Narendra learns a lot from her. He had acquired vast knowledge of various subjects at a very young age. He had a keen interest in the Vedas and the Upanishads,

In the beginning, he was not so religious. He also doubted the existence of God. In 1881, Narendra went to meet Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, who stayed at the Kali temple in Dakshineswar.

He was also greatly influenced by the Brahmo Samaj and its philosophy.


Ramakrishna Paramahansa

Ramakrishna Paramahansa

His parents were from the Brahmin caste. He belonged to a poor family and was devoted to the traditions of his ancient religion. He was a great devotee of Mother Kali and used to meditate on her as his divine mother. He was also the Guru of Swami Vivekananda.

Once there was a dispute between Ramakrishna and Vivekananda. Ramakrishna says understand God. But Vivekananda was influenced by Brahmo Samaj. He did not agree to understand the deity. He says that it does not exist. But after a time Ramakrishna connected his mind with Narendra and made him see the real God. He then agreed to accept the deity


 There came a time in Swamiji's life when he was facing extreme poverty. His father was a philanthropist, due to which he did not save money. This time was the worst time of his life, at this time his faith was starting to arise even from his mentor, he was constantly facing challenges and difficulties.

But soon he realizes the basic philosophy of Brahmin Hinduism. Also, he is a spiritual person, so his spiritual tendencies help him a lot. His Guru Ramakrishna also tries his best to make or transform him but things do not go well and his father dies.

At this time he was deeply distressed and began to question the existence of God, but soon realized the power of himself and God and set out in search of God supported by Ramakrishna. Asked for discretion and recourse instead of money and wealth

That day marked Vivekananda's complete spiritual awakening and attracted him to an ascetic way of life.


He pleaded with his Guru to teach him meditation and his Guru Ramakrishna agreed to teach him, then Narendra also accepted God and accepted Maa Kali as well.

Both he and his guru started meditating very hard, they meditated continuously for weeks or months. Swamiji also read many Vedas and became proficient in all of them.

Narendra had no money and had only one cloth. He was living the life of a monk. As time was running out and now his Guru Ramakrishna's health was deteriorating day by day and he realized that his last time had come and he told Vivekananda that I have given you all my knowledge and now it is your duty to awaken the youth of India And tell him the power of Hinduism.

  and then this is the last words of Paramhansa after he will attain the Samadhi on 15 August 1886. He had given Narendra everything he possessed and tells him that to take care of disciples show everyone the path of spiritual.


Narendra started the journey He went from the Himalayas to Kanyakumari to awaken people. He met many people and awakened them many people also spoke against him but he was a peace-loving person. And with his calm mind, anyone would answer everything thoughtfully

In this journey, many people were influenced by him and became his disciples and followed him. Raja Khetri is one of those who were greatly influenced by him and gave Raja Khetri Narendra the title of VIVEKANANDA.

World conference:- 

Narendra contemplates that a clear picture of India should be made in the world view and that India's power is conveyed to the world, so he thinks of going to a world conference in Chicago.

Raja Khetri helps them move to Chicago but the conference was moved from July to September. Swamiji had no money, he became very upset. He went to many societies for help, but no one agreed to help him due to religion differences.

But finally the Americans came and helped him, finally, the time came and the conference opened and Swamiji started his speech.

Two minutes round of applause was there and his immortal journey to the west started.
