150 Years of Swami Vivekananda

By January 10, 2013

Follow me on:

Hindus around the world will observe the 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda with special prayers, meditation, devotional songs, and religious discourses on January 12, 2013. Swamiji's birthday is also celebrated as India's National Youth Day that is commemorated with processions, youth conventions, seminars, yoga, sports, and other cultural activities.

To mark Swami Vivekananda 150th birth anniversary year (January 2013--January 2014) many organizations are gearing up to celebrate the event along with millions of devotees of the Swami across of the world. The Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission have already taken up a number of important service projects which were dear to Swami Vivekananda.

These projects include integrated child development, empowerment of women, and alleviating poverty. Besides, the Mission will produce films and distribute books on the message of Swami Vivekananda to various libraries and will hold national and international seminars in various places on Swamiji's contribution to Indian and international cultures.

The RK Math and Mission will do a live telecast of the celebrations which will be held at its Headquarters - Belur Math in the Howrah district of West Bengal, India. It has launched a special commemorative web site that aims to provide a glimpse into the various facets of the life and teachings of Swamiji. The Malaysian government also released a commemorative postal stamp to mark the occasion last year.
