Kum. Nivedita R BhideNivedita Raghunath Bhide, All India Vice President of Vivekananda Kendra, Kanyakumari recently visited Chicago and addressed a press conference where she spoke about the impending celebration of 150th Birth Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda.

Swami Vivekananda did three days and nights sadhana at Kanyakumari rock. Vivekananda rock memorial is a place of inspiration for Hindus. Vivekananda Kendra is natural and spiritual evolution of Vivekananda Rock memorial committee.

Vivekananda Kendra is a Hindu spiritual organization based on the principles preached by Swami Vivekananda.

Nivedita ji Bhide who is a Jeevan Vrati (full timer) since her college graduation, said that she was in the U.S. to spread his message of unity of mankind. She emphasized further that Swamiji is not an alien to America, rather he is the one who strengthened the base of Hindu Philosophy of Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Jnana Yoga, about which he spoke extensively in the U.S. during his first visit to this country in the year 1893 to attend the Parliament of World Religions.

Nivedita ji said that with a view to continue the activities of Swami Vivekananda Sardashati Samaroh (SVSS), Vivekananda Kendra of Bharat had set up 41 regions in India each with a working committee. They plan to extend it further by setting up village level committees across India in each state. She believes that this is yet another opportunity to reach the message of Swamiji to the youth, who are showing interest in his works and teachings.
