Prophecies about India and the world by Swami Vivekananda

India

Swami ji often used to tell his disciples about the past glories of India, but at the same time he said that India in the future would be even greater. One day at the Belur Math he said to them. “ Believe me, I have had a vision in which I saw clearly what would happen to India in the coming four or five centuries.”

On another occasion he made a series of remarkable predictions. He said : “India will be free in another fifty years and freedom will come in an unusual way. A great war will flare up within twenty years, and if the Western nations do not give up their stark materialism, another world war is inevitable.” Swami ji also prophesized that “India, when independent, will embrace the materialism of the West and attain material prosperity to such an extent that it will surpass its past records in that field” He also foretold that “Countries such as America would become increasingly spiritual because they will have realized from the height of material prosperity the simple truth that gross materialism cannot give eternal peace.”
