In life we often give up our dreams. We take refuge behind excuse that we do not have the kind of money to initiate such a project. But many great thinkers and sages tell us, if we want something earnestly, money comes. May be we have to work very hard to full fill our dream, but nothing really stops because of money. Swami Vivekananda went to the Parliament of Religion in Chicago. He was penniless. But nothing stopped him from delivering his lecture.
After Sri Rama Krishna passed away, his monastic disciples were penniless and did not have enough to eat. Yet, even after taking vow of a monastic life, Swami Vivekananda dreamt of creating a Rama Krishna Order and laying foundation stone for the Rama Krishan Math and Mission. Swamiji had lectured tirelessly in the United States and Europe on Vedanta philosophy. With the money, that he earned by delivering lecture, he purchased land and laid foundation stone of the Belur Math in West Bengal. Today, Rama Krishan Mission has spread in many cities in all continents.
In his discourse with a disciple, Swamiji once said, son do not despair because you do not have money. Be a human first, have right intent, money will come :
"Man Makes Money, Money Does Not Make A Man"
Swami Vivekananda, Direct Disciple of Sri Rama Krishna, Rama Krishna Order
In our lives also we see, those who do not have money yet have hunger to be successful, actually succeed. On the other hand people with access of all amenities of life, lack zeal to make a difference.
