“Prayer goes up. Blessings come down”

“I have lost my all wish for my salvation, I never wanted earthly enjoyment. I must see my machine in strong working order and knowing sure that, I have put in the level for the good of humanity in India at least, which no power can drive back. I may worship the only God that exists, the only God I believe in, the sum total of all souls and above all my God, the wicked; my God the miserable; my God the poor of all races, of all species is the special object of my worship.”

This philanthropy is the inspiration and base of Vivekanand Ashram.
