Patriotism and orientation with Vivekananda and Gandhi

  • Naresh Kumar Faculty, Teacher Education IIMT, Aligarh


The nationalism of Swami Vivekananda is related to spiritualism. He linked the regeneration of India to its ancient tradition of spiritual goals. "Each nation has a destiny to fulfill, each country has a message to transmit, and each nation has a mission to fulfill, so we must take our own race, mission, destiny, I have to understand the role that I have to contribute to the harmony of race and race.” Its nationalism is based on humanism and universalism, two main characteristics of Indian mental culture. He taught people to get rid of the enslavement and consequent misfortune that they had done. The essence of their nationalism is not materialism, but is purely spiritual and is considered as a source of all the power of India. Unlike Western, essentially secular, nationalism, the nationalism of Swami Vivekananda is based on the religion of Indian life. Respect for people, deeply concerned about freedom and equality are the ethical system to obtain political and spiritual freedom through a unified spiritual and dedicated service in the world based on universal brotherhood "Karmyoga" is the basis of their nationalism. Gandhi has shown that he can bypass the dominant nationalist vocabulary and clarify and defend the independence case in very different languages. He insisted that the entire independent movement is not national claims, all non-nationalist national struggles, and the entire nationalist movement must be expressed in the language of indigenous European languages, rather than theory.
