The 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda (12 January 2013) was celebrated all over India and in different countries of the world. Year-long events and programs were organised by different branches of Ramakrishna Math, Ramakrishna Mission, central government and different state governments of India, education institutions, youth groups etc.
The Ramakrishna Mission in Tiruvannamalai organized processions of Swami Vivekananda in two chariots carrying a life like statue of Swami Vivekananda. Sri Ramansramam was very pleased to receive the chariot on November 26th around 12 PM.
We offered worship, aarti and sung bhajans praising Swami Vivekananda. May the noble thoughts of Swami Vivekananda reverberate in every corner of the world and the inner recess of our Heart!!!
Quote from Bhagavan
Shudananda Bharati went to Tiruvannamalai and saw Maharshi, who first appeared to him as a heap of sacred ashes, then as a Pillar of Fire, and next as Siva Linga.
