THE IMPACT OF SWAMI VIVEKANANDA’S EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY ON MODERN EDUCATION: A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS
Abstract: This paper provides a comprehensive examination of Vivekananda's perspectives and concepts pertaining to education. During the 19th century, India witnessed the emergence of numerous eminent individuals who significantly contributed to the enhancement of our nation's educational system through their exceptional abilities and distinctive characteristics. Swami Vivekananda was among the individuals in question. Vivekananda espoused the fundamental concept of the inherent connection between humanity and divinity. He also has a diverse range of educational perspectives. He made significant contributions to the field of education, addressing several facets within it. The relevance and necessity of his ideas on numerous elements of education are arguably greater in contemporary times than they were during his own lifetime. It is not surprising that even after more than a century after his demise, there persists a continued endeavour to augment our intellectual pursuits through the invaluable insights on education offered by Vivekananda. Upon careful examination of Vivekananda's writings and talks, it becomes evident that his perspectives on education stem from a process of independent contemplation.
