Great people always have great memories. They do things which are remembered by everyone. This is the reason we call them great people. Here we are sharing an inspirational story from the life of spiritual guru Swami Vivekananda
When Swami Vivekananda lived in Chicago, he used to go to the library and borrow large volumes of books and take them home and return them the next day.
Few days later, the librarian became curious and asked him, “Why do you take out so many books when you can’t read them all in one day?”
Swami Vivekananda replied that he read each and every page of every book. The librarian could not believe it, and so Swami Vivekananda asked her to test him.
She opened a book, selected a page and paragraph, and asked him to tell her what was written there. Swami Vivekananda repeated the sentence exactly as it was written in the book, without looking at it.
The librarian was astounded and did more tests. Each time Swami Vivekananda repeated the exact words written in the book.
Later the librarian discovered that Swami Vivekananda had a photographic memory. He did not have to read books. His eyes, his mind, would capture the image on the page, and whenever he wished, he could just recall a book, a page, a sentence. That was the capacity of his brain and mind.
