Abstract:
Swami Vivekananda's spirit of nationalism reached the zenith of excellence after his heroic return from the west. It assumed the shape of wild fire and influenced the mass as magic spell. He gave a clarion call to the nation which had been debased to political serfdom and economic stagnation that suddenly realized that it had not to bend its head down in shame, inferiority and defeatism but that it could hold up its head in legitimate pride and absolute confidence. He kindled a new zeal and fervour for struggle for freedom in every corner of india. According to Vivekananda, Indian nationalism is divine in inspiration and spirit although he talked of Hindu nationalism. In highlighting the divine aspect of our national life he said ... "there is not one race on this earth to which the world owes so much as to the patient Hindu, the mild Hindu. He described Karma Yoga as a mental discipline that allows a person to carry out his or her duties as a service to the entire world and also as a path to enlightenment. The present paper would give a deeper reflection on karma yoga as the basis of nationalism of Swami Vivekananda.
