Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa (Calcutta, 1836-1886) is perhaps one of the most important spiritual teachers of humanity in recent centuries. His message of peace and, above all, that all religions are valid (principle of harmony between religions: religions are different paths to God, but they are not God), are laying the foundations for a new global ethic. Ramakrishna mainly followed Bhakti Yoga: The Yoga of Devotion, although inside he was all Jnana (Knowledge)

Knowledge leads to Unity, Ignorance to Diversity (Sri Ramakrishna)

He was greatly influenced by Vedanta and therefore by the Bhagavad Gita. Sri Ramakrishna laid the foundation for Indian spiritual renaissance and notably influenced many Swamis. Gandhi considered him a reincarnation of God.

This ideology has three characteristics:

  1. It is modern, in the sense that the ancient principles of Vedanta have been expressed in modern language
  2. It is universal, that is, it is intended for all humanity
  3. It is practical, in the sense that its principles can be applied in everyday life to solve life's problems

Swami Vivekananda gave a new philosophy of work for the modern world based on the principles of the Bhagavad Gita.

India's National Youth Day, also known as Vivekananda Jayanti, has been celebrated since 1984 on January 12 in all Indian universities and colleges, the birthday of Swami Vivekananda.
