Swami Vivekananda Says:
“Be strong, my young friends; that is my advice to you. You will be nearer to Heaven through football than through the study of the Gita. You will understand Gita better with your bicep, your muscles, a little stronger.” Truly great words from the Master.
Swami Vivekananda meant that we should possess a strong body. Vivekananda also suggests that primarily we should aspire to possess a strong body. A stronger body facilitates building a strong mind–both go hand-in-hand.
