Is it not a blunder or fraud to have Vivekananda as role model for Hindutva? As per authentic sources (few reproduced below), he represented:
a. Beef eating as hallmark of glorious Vedic culture
b. Meat and beef as necessity for revival of our nation
c. Ram, Sita, Krishna etc being drunkards and meat-eaters
d. A chain smoker, who despite claiming to be sanyasi indulged shamelessly in this addiction, even in front of ladies
e. Prophet and Jesus being great teachers of world, God incarnate and messengers of equality and peace, among rare role-models of world.
f. Islam being necessary for survival of Vedanta!
g. Money being more important than concern for humanity.
If despite these blatant holes in his ideology, he is still the greatest role model for RSS, VHP and adorns all their speeches, writings, calendars, photos, symbols etc, why not have same kind of followership for a Nehru, Jinnah, etc. And if he is justified as role model, does not all the hoopla over cow-protection, islam, ram krishna being ideals become hoax?
Please refer to following sources to check veracity:
VIVEKANANDA A BIOGRAPHY by Swami Nikhilananda (Published 1953)
THE COMPLETE WORKS OF SWAMI VIVEKANANDA
Now some selected excerpts:
"Orthodox brahmins regarded with abhorrence the habit of eating animal food. The Swami courageously told them about the eating of beef by the brahmins in Vedic times. One day, asked about what he considered the most glorious period of Indian history, the Swami mentioned the Vedic period, when 'five brahmins used to polish off one cow.' He advocated animal food for the Hindus if they were to cope at all with the rest of the world in the present reign of power and find a place among the other great nations, whether within or outside the British Empire."
Instances are found in the Râmâyana* and the Mahâbhârata* of the drinking of wine and the taking of meat by Rama and Krishna, whom they worship as God. Sita Devi vows meat, rice, and a thousand jars of wine to the river-goddess, Gangâ!*
"Embracing Sitâ with both his arms, Kâkutstha (Râma) made her drink pure Maireya wine, even as Indra makes Shachi partake of nectar.Servants quickly served flesh-meat variously dressed, and fruits of various kinds for the use of Rama."
- "(I saw) both of them (Krishna and Arjuna) drunk with Madhvâsava (sweet spirituous liquor made from honey), both adorned with sandal paste, garlanded, and wearing costly garments and beautiful ornaments."(Udyoga, LVIII. 5).
- "Be merciful to us, O goddess, and I shall, on my return home, worship thee with a thousand jars of arrack (spirituous liquor) and rice well-dressed with flesh-meat" (Ramayana).
3. Next para:
Whatever one or the other may say, the real fact, however, is that the nations who take the animal food are always, as a rule, notably brave, heroic and thoughtful. The nations who take animal food also assert that in those days when the smoke from Yajnas used to rise in the Indian sky and the Hindus used to take the meat of animals sacrificed, then only great religious geniuses and intellectual giants were born among them; but since the drifting of the Hindus into the Bâbâji's vegetarianism, not one great, original man arose midst them.
"There was a time in this very India when, without eating beef, no Brahmin could remain a Brahmin; you read in the Vedas how, when a Sannyasin, a king, or a great man came into a house, the best bullock was killed; "
About vegetarian diet I have to say this — first, my Master was a vegetarian; but if he was given meat offered to the Goddess, he used to hold it up to his head. The taking of life is undoubtedly sinful; but so long as vegetable food is not made suitable to the human system through progress in chemistry, there is no other alternative but meat-eating. So long as man shall have to live a Râjasika (active) life under circumstances like the present, there is no other way except through meat-eating. It is true that the Emperor Asoka saved the lives of millions of animals by the threat of the sword; but is not the slavery of a thousand years more dreadful than that? Taking the life of a few goats as against the inability to protect the honour of one's own wife and daughter, and to save the morsels for one's children from robbing hands — which of these is more sinful? Rather let those belonging to the upper ten, who do not earn their livelihood by manual labour, not take meat; but the forcing of vegetarianism upon those who have to earn their bread by labouring day and night is one of the causes of the loss of our national freedom.
He implies that vegetarian food made us slave!!
You will be astonished if I tell you that, according to the old ceremonials, he is not a good Hindu who does not eat beef. On certain occasions he must sacrifice a bull and eat it.
The perfect religion is the Vedic religion. The Vedas have two parts, mandatory and optional. The mandatory injunctions are eternally binding on us. They constitute the Hindu religion. The optional ones are not so. These have been changing and been changed by the Rishis to suit the times. The Brahmins at one time ate beef and married Sudras. [A] calf was killed to please a guest.
BLESSED AND BELOVED (Mr. E. T. Sturdy),
So far the journey has been very beautiful. The purser has been very kind to me and gave me a cabin to myself. The only difficulty is the food — meat, meat, meat. Today they have promised to give me some vegetables.
The result of this steady work in the West and the tremendous work of a month in India upon the Bengalee constitution is "diabetes". It is a hereditary foe and is destined to carry me off, at best, in a few years' time. Eating only meat and drinking no water seems to be the only way to prolong life — and, above all, perfect rest for the brain.
10. Vivekananda in Public: Hindus Should not Kill any Animal for Food
"What business has a man to kill a cow, a goat, or any other animal for food?" Volume 3, "Buddhistic India" Feb. 2 1900
Vivekananda in Private: Hindus Should Eat Meat - Half a Pound a Day
"Q. Is it feasible for us Bengalis, poor as we are, to take meat?
Swamiji: Why not? You can afford to have it in small quantities. Half a pound a day is quite enough."
Volume 5, Conversations and Dialogues, IX
11. Vivekananda's Sense of Noble Service to Humanity
"I am quite satisfied with my task in life. I have been much more
active than a Sannyasin ought to be. Now I will disappear from society
altogether. The touch of this world is degenerating me, I am sure, so
it is time to be off. Work has no more value beyond purifying the
heart. My heart is pure enough; why shall I bother my head about doing
good to others?" Volume 9, Letter LXXXV Feb. 6th 1896
Vivekananda: In It For 'Quick Money'
"I had a lecture here [Los Angeles] last night. The hall was not
crowded, as there was very little advertisement, but a good-sized
audience though. I hope they were pleased. If I feel better, I am
going to have classes in this city soon. I am on the business path
this time, you know. Want a few dollars quick, if I can."
Volume 9, Letter CLIX Dec. 9th 1899
"I am making money fast - twenty-five dollars a day now. Soon I will
work more and get fifty dollars a day. In San Francisco I hope to do
better still - where I go in two or three weeks. Good again - better,
I say - as I am going to keep the money all to myself and not squander
it anymore. And then I will buy a little place in the Himalayas... And
the whole world may go to ruin round my ears, I would not care."
Volume 9, Letter CLXI Dec. 27th 1899
