Omkarananda Jayanti Celebration
on 25th December 2017

On 25th December 2017 the Birthday Celebrations of our Gurudev Paramahamsa
Omkarananda Saraswati started in the very early morning with the recitation of Sundarkand.

Students of Omkarananda Gayatri Ved Vidyalaya were also listening
to the holy words of this beautiful Chapter of the Ramayana.

Pujas by the Chief Priest Suresh and his assistant
in the Temple of Shri Omkarananda-Hanumanji.

Lord Shiva, Omkarananda-Hanuman and Gurudev
Paramahamsa Omkarananda Saraswati in the flower-decorated Temple.

In a brilliant way, the Master of Ceremony, Shri Swami Paramananda,
was guiding the audience through the cultural Function in Honour of Gurudev.

Shri Swami Vishveshwarananda is lighting the Deepas with the request
to the Divine to make this holy Celebration successful.

It was the right beginning with Lord Ganesha, when Kumari Somashekhari
started the Bharatanatyam Temple-Dance "Ganesha Kautuvam".

The students of Omkarananda Gayatri Ved Vidyalaya have proved that they are real
Masters of Vedic Shlokas. For universal Peace, Harmony and good Health for everybody,
the students had recited the "Soma-Sooktam" from the Shukla Yajurveda.
Shri Swami Vishveshwarananda, in praise of the students,
speaks about their highly disciplined life style.

A very satisfied audience are listening to the melodious songs
of the beautiful Bhajans played by the three musicians.

"Gananayaka Vandana with Pushpanjali" was presented
by Kumari Somashekhari with sparkling movements.

To honour Gurudev Paramahamsa Omkarananda Saraswati on this auspicious day,
Shri Ramesh Uniyal, a singing talent, presented a beautiful song on Him.

It must have been a great moment for Ramesh Uniyal, when honourable
Principal of Omkarananda Saraswati Nilayam, garlanded and appreciated him.

The majestic flavour came into action, when
Kumari Somashekhari presented "Kalyani Jatiswaram".

The professional musicians made the function full of joy
with their great rhythmic style of playing and singing Bhajans.

Shri D. K. Varshney, a Speaker par Excellence and a born Educationist,
highlighted the glorious Activities of Paramahamsa Omkarananda Saraswati and
the Omkarananda Ashram Himalayas and its different Trusts,
which are running over 75 (mostly educational) Institutions.

As a reward for the noble speech of Shri Varshneyji,
Swami Vishveshwarananda offered a shawl to the visibly happy Mr. Varshney.

Shri Swami Vishveshwarananda Saraswati, President Omkarananda Ashram Himalayas
and Successor of Gurudev Paramahamsa Omkarananda Saraswati, spoke with
great enthusiasm and deep reverence about the wondrous works done
by Gurudev Paramahamsa Omkarananda Saraswati.

Everybody stands for the Omkarananda Arati conducted by the Chief Priest.

Arati was offered by Kumari Somashekhari to Gurudev.

Each and every one could attend a very pure and tasty Bhandara.
