Even though he and his life can impact many, Vivekananda’s journey in this world was not easy. He struggled a lot inspiring millions of men and women across the world.
Let’s take a look at some facts of his life:
His real name is Narendra Nath Datta and while studying he failed to attain high marks but that’s doesn’t mean he was not a brilliant student. Back in those days, it was really difficult to score marks and what he scored was considered as brilliant.
He went through a spiritual crisis when he didn’t get the job for a very long time. He used to ask for a job by going door to door and still failed which led him turning into an atheist.
Many people believed that Vivekananda, a very proud person as he held a BA degree and as a person, he is also proudy and literally smoke cheroot in front of elders. He was also arrogant.
Swami Vivekananda experienced a period of profound emergency when he was jobless. That is the point at which he was acquainted with the name ‘Shri Ramkrishna Paramhansa’ by one of his English teachers. In 1881, Narendra Nath met with Shri Ramakrishna at Dakshineshwar’s Kali temple. It was Shri Ramakrishna who figured out how to expel every one of the questions youthful Narendra Nath had and demonstrated to him the way of profound clearness and he turned into Ramkrishna’s supporter.
He was a very handsome man and many wealthy women tried to woo him knowing that he was spending his days in poverty and even literally starve.
He always turned them down by saying ‘shun these worthless desires and call upon God’.
