Dr. Syama Prasad Mookerjee* (alternative spelling: Shyama Prasad Mookerjee, Hindi: श्यामा प्रसाद मुखर्जी, Bengali: শ্যামা প্রসাদ মুখার্জি) (6 July 1901 – 23 June 1953) was an Indian politician, barrister and an academic. He worked as a Minister for Industry and Supply in Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru's cabinet. Later he left Indian National Congress and founded Bharatiya Jana Sangh in 1951. A detailed biography of Mookerjee is available at Wikipedia, in this article you'll find Syama Prasad Mookerjee's quotes and comments on Swami Vivekananda.

Syama Prasad Mookerjee told—
Nineteenth century had witnessed the birth of several spirited men in different corners of India. Swami Vivekananda was the greatest among them. The message of the Swami still resonates in the Indian hearts. Only in his chalked out path India can achieve absolute national rejuvenation. As the great ideals of Divine Buddha has their culmination in Emperor Ashoka's proactive stance for his subjects, such were the spiritual tenets of Divine Sri Ramakrishna manifested through the life’s work of Swami Vivekananda. Behind Ashoka's emissaries of peace was the political enormity of a King, but, on the other hand, Vivekananda's Karma-yoga had nothing except love and sacrifice behind its sustenance. To build the country and the nation, it is imperative that we must adopt the ideal of Swami. ...People can never live without an ideal. Within the Swami's life and message are found such timely element and ideal resorting to which we can build a strong nation and a great country.


  • It seems Mookerjee used to spell his name "Syama Prasad" and not "Shyama Prasad". Other than Wikipedia you may check thisthis.
