Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday greeted the people of the state, especially the youth, on the 156th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda.

Recalling the immense contribution made by Vivekananda, Adityanath said that as a young seer, he contributed immensely in propagating the culture and heritage of India in far-off foreign lands.

He said Vivekananda was a great repository of literature, philosophy and history.

As the main disciple of Saint Ramkrishna Paramhans, Vivekananda presented the entire philosophy and ethos of India with logic and irrefutable evidence, Adityanath said.

The Chief Minister also exhorted the youth to read his speeches and writings as much as possible and tread on the path shown by him.

Vivekananda's birthday is also celebrated as National Youth Day.
