Vivekananda Navaratri Celebrations at Vivekananda House – Feb 06-14, 2014

SVThe  150th  Birth Anniversary  of  Swami  Vivekananda  is being celebrated in all parts of India and abroad and an awareness of his singular contribution to Indian resurgence is being felt anew. Chennai is blessed as it played host to this great beacon of light for nine days when he stayed in Vivekananda House or Vivekanandar Illam (then known as Ice House)  from 6th to 14th February 1897. It is befitting that these nine days are celebrated as ‘Vivekananda Navaratri’ from those times itself.

To mark this occasion special programmes have been arranged as usual at Vivekananda House from Feb 6th to 14th, 2014 between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.

We invite you, your friends and family members to participate in these celebrations and be blessed by the Holy Trio.

In the service of God,
Swami Gautamananda
Adhyaksha
