    I have many times observed that majority of great saints have died at young age and few well known examples are swami ji and adi shankracharya.
    Then i read one of the very famous quote by Swami Vivekananda ji
    “Nature, body, mind, go to death, not we. We neither go nor come. The man Vivekananda is in nature, is born and dies; but the Self (soul) we see as Vivekananda is never born and never dies. It is the eternal and unchangeable Reality.”
    and thats when i decided to do some research on this field and found that there is some spiritual reasoning behind it.
    Swami ji himself had told his brother that he would live for 5-6 years at most as per his prediction.
    and Swami ji explained his brother than his brother that his soul is getting bigger and bigger and his body could hardly contain it due to his spiritual progress resulting in death of his body .
    He said that at any time his body may burst into pieces due to this growing soul

    By soul he meant consciousness

    Vedanta philosophy :
    consciousness exists separate from the body,it is a continuum - it exists endlessly, like an infinite ocean
    Rest this video will be will help you understand the hidden reason behind swami ji's death

    This video will guide you for more

    At early age of 39 Swami Vivekananda ji left his body on the evening of July 4, 1902.

    The death episode of swami ji begin around 1884 when his throat suddenly started bleeding and at 1st it was diagnosed as 'clergyman's sore throat' & the treatment went on for it. But the bleeding continued over the time and the disease that was recognized as cancer later on

    As Swami Vivekananda ji had once prophesied that he would not live beyond 40 , On the 4th Of July 1902, At around 7'o clock swami ji quietly went for mediation into his room with words to his disciples in Belur Math saying that no one should disturb him as he was going to his room after sometime he called and asked one of his disciples to open all the windows and fan his head.

    The disciple continued to fan Swami Vivekananda ji but minutes passed without the word of swami ji and the disciple presumed that swami ji was either sleeping or had gone into deep meditation

    As per Swami Nikhilananda in the Swami's official biography, At the end of an hour, Swami ji's Hands trembled a little & swami ji started taking deep breath and next time when he took a similar deep breath his eyes became fixed and he attained Mahasamadhi the divine unification with almighty.

    Swamiji also had predicted independence of India in next 50 years which also came true apart from prediction of his own life span

    Namaste everyone,

    It seems to be if this is true, Swamiji had figured out how to leave his body. Could he have ordered his body to create the cancer so that he could leave on schedule?

    I think all things are as they should be. Many Hindu saints left their bodies at a younger age. As far as the physical body goes, that's what happens. It gets dropped off when it does. Same for and species of life. What happens happens, and I don't see much of a point in reading into it.

    The video explains the reality of death when it comes to swami ji.
    Most of the learned men's, even among our saints, who have evolved dynamically in the world, have always had a lesser life span.
    I many times think that, maybe their contribution towards man kinds is pretty defined and when they complete their job they leave their body as per their will..

    my grandpa was a spiritual man , once he asked his sons including my dad, that can they manage life without him?
    each one of them started asking why he was saying grandpa said "just to know that have all his sons become responsible enough"...
    My eldest uncle said yes all are..The next day my grand pa left his body...

    Strange but this is what i always see when it comes to spiritual people

    Namaskāra Hindu,

    Interesting that you mention that. My Mom was trying to reach me via phone during the week in early 1998, and finally, she reached me on a Saturday evening. We talked for about an hour and a half, I think. With Voice-Carryover relay for deaf people who can speak, she was able to hear me speak, but I couldn't hear her (can't hear people on the phone anyway). The next day, she died, as evidenced by the Sunday paper and her groceries from the store on the dining table (she went shopping on Sundays).

    Mom was the kind of person who came from a well-to-do family, Quakers even, though she never did pass it onto me, but who also struggled with a hidden problem through most of her life and battled alcoholism. She finally came to grips with it after her first heart attack at 50. She went to AA for years until the very end, and she learned to like herself, that what happened to her was not her fault, and she was happy with what she had and happy with simply being the person she was. She didn't need this or that. She certainly did not put up with abuse from spouses from that time on. It was OUT THE DOOR as soon that got started. She considered herself spiritual, but not religious. I guess she knew.

    Over the course of 2-3 years, I had a very large number of dreams in which I had kept her apartment the way it was, paid the rent every month, and went down there every 2-3 weeks to clean it and stay in it for the weekend. I would dream about going through her things, deciding to discard or not discard this or that the other thing. I would also dream about seeing her pots and pans floating in the air in the kitchen as dinner was being made. One time, I dreamed that I was standing beside her out on a balcony of a tall building, taking in the scenery.

    During that time, there was one time (and I still get goose bumps thinking about it) when I was in bed at home, laying on my left side in deep sleep state. Suddenly, I felt a warm hand on my right shoulder, and I woke up without MOVING a muscle. I looked around without moving around, as much as I could see in that position. I thought someone had broken into my house. That hand was still there, not moving at all. SLOWLY, I turned my head upward to my right, and for about 2-3 seconds, I could "see" a circle area of light with a blurred face above me looking down. Suddenly, the vision went away, and I sat up in a start and asked, "Dad?! Is that you??" But it wasn't. It wouldn't be some time before it was his turn, five days short of two years after Mom's passing.

    I had a similar experience with my last partner, though it didn't happen for some time because no one contacted me. For some reason, I've rarely experienced dreams of this sort with Dad, and he's never made contact with me like this.

    Swami Vivekenanda did not die. An old soul, temporarily inhabiting a body, formed a personage others referred to as Swami Vivekenanda. Through that personage, this soul elucidated life and shared insights for many souls who later would inhabit other physical bodies and develop other personalities. "Swami Vivekenanda' was a temporal naming of this phenomena.
