#103, All of you are Saadhus and great saints

Swami Vivekananda wrote to Swami Brahmananda (Rakhal) from San Francisco, on Mar. 12, 1900:

"... Evil actions leave none scot-free; Mother never spares anybody. I admit my actions have been wrong. Now, brother, all of you are Saadhus and great saints, kindly pray to the Mother that I do not have to shoulder all this trouble and burden any longer. ... "

*What are these evil actions which Swamiji himself is admitting?
*Why did he feel that he would not be left scot-free?
*Why the sarcasm?
*What will happen to his slogan "Arise, awake and stop not till thy goal is achieved"

worst blog i have ever visited. swamiji feels that in administrating the math unavoidably some decisions hurt some of the math members and that hurting the co disciples by taking strong decisions is the mistake being admitted here...........however one can easily see that it is not a mistake but rather he said so that to boost the morale of math members........I think u are dedicated to make black spots o the character of swamiji...........worst thing to do.........go and get some nice job
