Mangalore, Jul 11: Two days national level conference on "Celebration of 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda" began on Friday July 11 at Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara College of Business Management here.

Swami Nikhileshwaranandaji, secretary of Ramakrishna Mission, Vadodara inaugurated the conference. 


In his inaugural speech, he asked a question to the students who were gathered, "Where was Swami Vivekananda born?" The students started to give answers of many places. Most of them said Bangalore or Mangalore. Swami Nikhileshwaranandaji suggested the students to read the biography of Swami Vivekananda because the answers given by the gathered were wrong.

"We have got the permission to celebrate Swami Vivekananda's 150th birth anniversary for four years. So many institutions started celebrating it from 2010. But when I look here, it looks like, the celebration will continue for another year. There are 178 branches of Ramakrishna Matt and still many more branches are coming up. This is all because of Swami Vivekananda's power," said Swami Nikhileshwaranandaji.

"Swami Vivekananda was a true leader. He has done his work for the future generation and to understand his work, we will take more than 1500 years" he added.

Swami Nikhileshwaranandaji gave a solution to kill the laziness of everyone with humor. 

"If you want success in your life, you should kill the laziness which is in you. To kill the laziness you need an AK 47 rifle. AK 47 is nothing but doing exercise in the morning," he said.

He also spoke about how to gain success in life. He said, "If you want long term success, you should work for a long term. For this you need a long term personality development."

"There are five types of long term personality development. One, good physical personality, second, intellectual personality development, third, mental development of personality, fourth, spiritual development and last one is moral development," he added.

" If you want success in any field, you should have the power of concentration of mind. Many institutions provide excellent education, but they do not provide how the education on a person's character, how to behave in the society. At present there are human monsters in the society. To find a good person, we have to use the microscope," he said.

Guest of honour Venkatesh Baliga, editor of Kodial Kkabar, Mangalore and alumni of SDMCBM delivered the keynote address on real scope of success comes from spiritual happiness.

Chairman of the organizing committee Aruna P Kamath honoured Swami Nikhileshwaranandaji and received the blessings from the Swamiji. Convener Shaini Naveen welcomed the guests.

Swami Jitakananda, secretary of Ramakrishna mission, Mangalore, Dr Padmanabha Marathe and others were present at the occasion.
