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
Like breath-control, meditation on form, incantations, invocations and regulation of diet are only aids to control of the mind. Through the practice of meditation or invocation, the mind becomes one-pointed.
