Swami Vivekananda advocated about Neo-Vedanta. It came into being when new ideas were submerged with the Vedanta.

Neo-Vedanta revolves around the question; How to achieve salvation?
Whereas “Vedanta” says God is the ultimate reality of truth and emphasizes the superiority of God.
As per the Swami Vivekananda, he wanted to find a new path of progress for Hinduism as they were not adequately happy with the reform movements, simply because of the Western methods.
The Himalayas is the ultimate way of achieving liberation by following the path of rejection.
To follow the path for service to Society and to create a social awakening in the minds of people about the reawakening of new thoughts.
To follow the Vedanta as preached by his teacher Sri Ramakrishna Prabhansha, who known as the son of soil try to rebirth an ancient tradition that is Indian wisdom of bhakti tradition amid growing westernization.
He was highly influenced by his teacher and established the Ramakrishna mission after his name only with its objective to serve humanity.
Ramakrishna was most spiritualist, who advised people to follow selfless devotion and argued that service of man to God.
He asked his disciples’ pure life, free of passion, hatred, and condemned no one is good at all.
He had a strong faith that all the religions are not contradictory to each other, but there are more faces for ones to never-ending faiths, and religions.
Swami Vivekananda suggests Indian people look Narayan, an Indian god in the form of poor background and that poor are dying of starvation.
He stood for selfless service of people, endless efforts to find the truth, and their reawakening disparity of India.


1. The Idea of oneness between God and man, the solidarity of the universe.
2. Neo-Vedanta’s study did not stand for a life of rejection but stood for selfless action in the service of humanity. Hence the service of man should be considered as service of God.
3. It promotes the principle of one soul and believes that different religious faith having a different path to reach the goal of liberation.
Therefore Vivekananda stood for service, sacrifice, and freedom.
He did not want the Neo-Vedanta to remain active but for the awakening of masses. So, he wanted young Indians to dedicate themselves to the cause of retention in India.
