Ramakrishna Mission, New Delhi on Saturday organised a YOUTH CONVENTION at Vivekanand Auditorium in which more than 300 youth participated offline and more than one thousands five hundred participated online . The Keynote speaker was Swami Sarvpriyanand, Minister-in -Charge, Vedanta Society, New York. While addressing the youth Swami Sarvpriyanand focused his lecture on three points – Faith, Being Focus and Service .
Swami Sarvapriyanand said once Swami Vivekanand pointed out that without having faith in oneself no one can progress in life. The main difference between ordinary person and great person is the degree of faith. Great people have FAITH in oneself. Swami ji further quoted Mahatma Gandhi used to say a person who don’t have faith in oneself cannot have faith in God .
Faith in oneself, one’s religion and country is most important thing.
Swami ji said being FOCUS is one of the important requirement of being successful. Now a days people lost focus in life , they are not aware of their goal , what they want in life . Swami while explaining the meaning of humility said that humility doesn’t mean becoming doormat rather seeing greatness in other . He further said playing victim card cannot help anyone for a long run.
In his last point Swami Sarvapriyananda said sewa is most important point for purification of mind . Just by doing meditation one cannot achieve liberation in life rather one became begger in life . Renunciation and service goes hand in hand .
On this occasion Swami Shantatmanand , Secretary,RamakrishnaMission said through education one can achieve success in life . We must stress on education and spread words about this . Each student has some good quality, need of the hour is to recognise that and build up one’s life on that strong point . Just by being good academic doesn’t gaurantee success in life .
