The Vedanta Kesari Centenary Celebration

The Vedanta Kesari, ‘the Lion of Vedanta’, is the spiritual and cultural monthly of the Ramakrishna Order published from Sri Ramakrishna Math, Mylapore, Chennai, since 1914. The Vedanta Kesari now completes a century of its service to the cause of spreading Vedanta and Ramakrishna-Vivekananda ideology of holistic spirituality and man-making.

Swami Vivekananda played a pivotal role in spreading and popularizing the Vedanta philosophy in modern times. A group of Swami Vivekananda’s disciples in Madras, which included Alasinga Perumal, started on 14 September 1895 a monthly bearing the title Brahmavadin (‘The Messenger of Highest Truth’).

It continued its march for 14 years, until Alasinga’s demise in 1909. From 1909 to 1914, the publication of Brahmavadin became irregular. The last issue was brought out in 1914 (March-April). Soon after, the Brahmavadin’s legacy was continued by a new journal, The Vedanta Kesari, started by Sri Ramakrishna Math Chennai, and has been in circulation ever since.

This video was aired on DD Bharathi in commemoration of this special occasion.
