"My ideal indeed can be put into a few words and that is: to preach unto mankind their divinity, and how to make it manifest in every movement of life. God is in every man, whether man knows it or not; your loving devotion is bound to call up the divinity in him.
- - - Swami Vivekananda
The Vedanta Movement was started by Swami Vivekananda in the mid-1890s under a Divine plan to fulfill the above objective.
He envisaged an association of sincere and dedicated individuals with a common goal in sight who can become a powerful gigantic machine to accomplish wonders which is impossible to attain individually.
Such an institution is like a fruiting tree that gives shelter, support, and life-sustaining fruits to the weary citizens of the society who come in close contact with it.
Like a tree, an institution also requires timely nourishment and nurturing. The best way to nourish this great institution is to lead a sincere and righteous life becoming a part of this Divine family.
The Vedanta Society of Portland welcomes dedicated and sincere divinities to participate in its activities.
A member of the Vedanta Society feels proud to be in this Divine family and gets following benefits-
The opportunity to borrow books from our newly organized library FREE of charge.
