'Bharat Jago Daud' held in Jaipur
Today thousands of people of Jaipur including students from various institutions in the age group 5 to 45 years took part in 'Bharat Jago Daud' to spread Swami Vivekanand's message.

As part of 150th Birth Anniversary of Swamy Vivekananda and to commemorate the great speech delivered by Swamy Vivekananda at Chicago on September 11, a mass run 'Bharat Jago Daud' is being organised in most cities and towns of the nation. 

In the run that started from Amar Jawan Jytoti in Jaipur, about 40k people took part in the run. The event was flagged off by the Olympian Rajvardhan Singh. Also, the event has been organized on the University-level across the nation simultaneously besides the public runs in various towns. 

This year, 150th Birth Anniversary of Swami Vivekanand, Indian Youth Icon, is being celebrated throughout the year in the country. 

Here are some important quotes of Swami Vivekanand. 

-Believe nothing until you find it out for yourself; that is what Raja-Yoga teaches us. Truth requires no prop to make it stand. Do you mean to say that the facts of our awakened state require any dreams or imaginings to prove them? Certainly not. 

-Do you love your country? Then come, let us struggle for higher and better things; look not back, no, not even if you see the dearest and nearest cry. Look not back, but forward! 

-Each nation has a destiny to fulfill, each nation has a message to deliver, each nation has a mission to accomplish. Therefore, from the very start, we must have to understand the mission of our own race, the destiny it has to fulfill, the place it has to occupy in the march of nations, the note which it has to contribute to the harmony of races. 

-It is when the national body is weak that all sorts of disease germs, in the political state of the race or in its social state, in its educational or intellectual state, crowd into the system and produce disease. To remedy it, therefore, we must go to the root of this disease and cleanse the blood of all impurities. 

-Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, that is way great spiritual giants are produced. 

-The great national sin is the neglect of the masses, and that is one of the causes of our downfall. No amount of politics would be of any avail until the masses in India are once more well educated, well fed, and well cared for. 

-The salvation of India, therefore, depends on the strength of the individual, and the realisation by each man of the divinity within.
