Viveka Vahini
(A Project to spread the message of Swami Vivekananda)
Project Brief

Viveka Vahini is a mobile unit carrying audio–visual equipment, pictorial exhibits, a beautiful life-size statue of Swami Vivekananda along with the literature on his life and message. This unit goes to the different educational institutions and rural areas to spread the life-giving message of the illustrious Swamiji to the young students and rural-folk, inculcating values in their impressionable minds. The project mainly focuses on Personality Development, National Integration and other themes of national interest in the light of Swamiji’s teachings”

The Vehicle and Swamiji's statue

“If you want to know India, study Vivekananda. In him everything is positive and nothing negative” said Rabindranath Tagore.

When Swami Vivekananda was asked in America about his motherland, he said “India I loved before I came away. Now the very dust of India has become holy to me, the very air is now to me holy: it is now the holy land, the place of pilgrimage, the Tirtha!”.

India is his queen of adoration. Present day India needs, nay desperately needs, Swamiji’s life-giving message.

To this great son of India, in what way can we pay homage? The foremost thing we should do is to spread his message. In that direction, Ramakrishna Mission, Vijayawada has planned to launch Viveka Vahini – a fully equipped van with audio - video facilities and Ramakrishna - Vivekananda literature. This Viveka Vahini will carry the man-making and character-building message of Swami Vivekananda to the whole of Andhra Pradesh in general and to the coastal districts in particular.

Similar projects are already functioning in Karnataka (Jnana Vahini) and Tamilnadu (Viveka Murasu). (See photos)

The project – Viveka Vahini is estimated to cost Rs.10 lakhs. We earnestly request you to contribute your mite to this noble cause. Your contribution by cash/cheque/D.D. can be made in favour of “Ramakrishna Mission, Vijayawada”. It will be thankfully received and acknowledged with our official receipt. Please note that donations to Ramakrishna Mission are exempt from income tax under section 80G.

Thanking You

Yours in the Lord
Swami Sashikantananda
