Arise, awake, and stop …

Arise, awake, and stop not till the goal is reached

This is the inspirational shlok  which was given by Swami Vivekanand for several time to people message to the Hindus to get out of their hypnotized state of mind

The shloka was only to  call to his countrymen to awaken their “sleeping soul” and propagate the message of peace and blessings given by the “ancient Mother” to the world. “Awake” also means  the awakening of one’s real nature and the consequent ushering in of prosperity.

On 24 April 1897 Vivekananda wrote a letter to Sarala Ghoshal. In that letter he stressed giving the public only positive education, because of his belief that negative thoughts weaken men. In that letter, he also reiterated this shloka.
