Swami Vivekananda – One of India’s greatest spiritual gurus


Born as Narendranath Dutta, Swami Vivekananda was a disciple of one of Indian greatest spiritual gurus Ramakrishna Paramhansa.

Interestingly, Vivekananda, who is now popular across the globe for his teachings and philosophies, had opposed his ‘Guru’ Ramakrishna’s views and his approach towards spirituality.

In the beginning, Vivekananda dismissed Ramakrishna’s vision as “mere figments of imagination” and “hallucinations”. He opposed idol worship and did not appreciate the idea of Advaita Vedanta. But destiny had a different plan. Narendranath subsequently got attracted to Ramakrishna’s philosophies. And the day he learnt of the latter’s greatness, life took its own course. Narendra had received the spiritual calling.
