Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.
Swami Vivekananda

Rama­kri­shna Vedan­ta Soci­ety of North Car­oli­na is ded­i­cat­ed to the prac­tice and prop­a­ga­tion of the ideals of Vedan­ta as pre­sent­ed to the mod­ern world by Sri Rama­kri­shna, Sri Sara­da Devi, and Swa­mi Vivek­a­nanda.
