Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Ramakrishna Mission in Malaysia today. Inaugurating a statue of Swami Vivekananda there, Shri Modi said that Vivekananda was not only a name but he personified the thousands of years old Indian culture and civilization.
Further adding, Shri Modi mentioned that both Swami Vivekananda and Ramakrishna Paramhansa were in pursuit of truth which got them together. They were neither looking for a teacher nor a disciple. He hoped that statue of Vivekananda in Malaysia would be a source of inspiration to the people there.
Swami Vivekananda rightly taught us Jan Seva is Prabhu Seva. From the Vedas to Vivekananda, India is very proud of our rich culture.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) November 22, 2015
