How did Swami Vivekananda die?

Answer

The cause of Swami Vivekananda’s death on July 4, 1902 was never officially recorded. Some sources suggested that a heart attack was the medical cause of Vivekananda’s death, while others pointed to the rupture of a blood vessel in his brain. Those who embrace the Swami’s teachings believe that he chose to leave the earth on the night of July 4 and that is the primary cause of his death.

At the time of his death, he was only 39 years old but had lived with disease and illness for many years. During his life, he was burdened with at least 31 health problems, including insomnia, diabetes and typhoid. By the time he was nearing the end of his life, his attitude was one of quiet acceptance. He made a statement just days before July 4 that his death was fast approaching. He had declared many years earlier that he would not live to see 40. In the months leading up to his death, he declined to comment on affairs of the world, instead saying, “he was already on his way.” Stories like these from Vivekananda fuel his followers' imaginations and lead many of them to identify the primary cause of his death as spiritual, and not as physical.
