Shouldn't we experience Swami Vivekananda's feelings?

Swami Vivekananda (himself an idol-worshiper and a disciple of a famous idol-worshiper Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa) has expressed his inner feelings as under: Same is to be apprehended by all of us - particularly by those who practice and defend Idolatry:

(i) "He who is high and the low, the saint and the sinner, the god and the worm, Him worship, the visible, the knowable, the real, the omnipresent, break all other idols. In whom there is neither past life nor future birth, nor death nor going or coming, in whom we always have been and always will be one, Him worship, break all other idols."(Complete Works: V, 136)

(ii) "If you want to remain happy, throw away all your bells etc. into the Ganges and worship God in men. Opening and closing of gates and with that bathing, clothing and feeding of God is all humbug. God in the idol changing dress several times, while the living Thakurs outside be shivering in cold is mockery of worship."
(Patravali II, P. 199)

= Bhavesh Merja

"The living God is within

"The living God is within you,and yet you are building churches and temples and believing all sort of imaginary nonsense.The only God to worship is the human soul in the human body.-------"According to Vedanta under heading of The Taj Mahal of Temples ----Meditation And Its methods by Swami Vivekananda.
It shows that he did not propogate Idol worship and accepts concept of One God .
But in reply to question "Can a man attain Mukti by image -worship!"
"Image -worship cannot directly give Mukti;it may be an indirect cause ,a help on the way.Image -worship should not be condemned for,with many, it prepares the mind for realization of the Advaita (non-duality)which alone makes man perfect.

Shouldn't we experience

Shouldn't we experience Swami Vivekananda's feelings???????????????????????????
Swami Vivekananda used to say that all persons are right at their places.Then why did Ram kill Ravavn?According to Vivekananda Ravan is also right at his place.It means that Ram killed a good person.It means that Ram was Bad.This is what your Swami Vivekananda tells us.It means that our all Rishi munis were bad.Do you accept it?I do not accept it.If you think that Ram was good then you should accept that Swami Vivekananda was bad.These words may be bitter for someone but what can I do for him?I cannot accept false.And I cannot say false to people.
Do you agree with me?

We can analyse point of view

We can analyse point of view of Swami Vivekanand ji about human being.Trait of Atma is always good whereas habits develop by human body like greed ,ahankar etc.converts the good action into bad in term of intention.Person like Ravan knows four vedas and have done Tapasya to get blessing.Ravan's actions and lust had made him a bad human being.
Please donot make judgement on rspected Swami Vivekananda instead accept and follow his views about Vedanta.

Well!He said that each and

Well!He said that each and every person is right at their places.How are all right?Was Ravan right at his place?This is the question actually?I am not here to see the mistakes of any person.I just read that he said so.And I tried to find the proof of it being right according to my knowledge.My knowledge may be of low quality.So what about of its Khandan.Am I right?Is my logic right?
Someone may be a very great person.He may be a well respected person.But somebody has seen his teachings to be wrong.So how can he/she accept his views?
Buddhaji is respected all over the world.But Dayanandaji actually challenged him.Because he found some mistakes of Buddhaji.And Dayanandaji are absolutely right.So I thought that all Sadhus present in the world who are respected all over the world may not be right.So I tried to find the proof of Vivekanandaji's thing.And when I were finding the proof,I saw it to be wrong.
Do you have anything which shows that Swami Vivekanand's words are absolutely right?Do you have?
You said that persons become bad due to Ahankar.Yes.That is right.But who does Ahankar?Does the body automaticcally do Ahankar?Does it?I want to discard the very false belief of doctors,scientists,sadhus etc. who say that mind runs automatically.
You should read the trnaslation of Yog Darshan,by Jyaneshwarji.It is present on Jamanagar Arya Samaj website.He says that Atma runs body.
I can also prove that it is the soul that runs body.
Proof:According to Newton,a body at rest cannot move until or unless some external force is applied on it.Our body.How can it move automatically?So it atma who governs the body.So all bad deeds are done by atma itself.Actually you are the one who needs to stop saying the false.So how can all be right.How can all be right?How can all be right?I ask .I ask it.I am crying.I am crying.I ask doctros .How can it run automatically?

Do you have any answer which

Do you have any answer which explains that Swami Vivekananda is really right?I am not criticising Vivekananda.It is the truth.I did not hear it from any person.

It looks like many persons

It looks like many persons do not know how to find proofs.

I think that discussion is

I think that discussion is good in which persons meet face to face.
