Swami Vivekananda has said, “First of all, our young men must be strong; religion will come afterwards. Be strong, my young friends; that is my advice to you. You will be nearer to heaven through football than through the study of the Gita.”
Swami Vivekananda was no soccer evangelist. His mission was not to promote the cause of football in India. Those who are on the way to Truth have an obligation to maintain good physical health, not for themselves but for that which they desire and represent.
Those who are not on the way to Truth, if they have good physical health, it is just a burden, because you will have vitality, you will have energy, and you will have no purpose, so all your energy and vitality will be directed only towards nonsense. It would be a great burden on your consciousness. You will be like a misguided weapon having fire, having explosiveness, but having no direction, no accuracy, no purpose.
