Mangaluru, Jan 12: “Salvation has absolutely nothing to do with human merit and absolutely everything to do with divine mercy. Through salvation our past has been forgiven, our present is given meaning, and our future is secured. The word ‘impossible’ is only in the mind. And not in the heart. If we can remain in the heart, there will be no end to our progress,” quoted N Seetharama, Prantha Saha Seva Pramuk, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangha, Karnataka South as the key speaker, on the occasion of the 159th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda and the National Youth Day held on Tuesday.
