Visit of some Students and Teachers of
Swami Omkarananda Junior High School,
Shrikot Ganganali, Dist. Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand,
to Omkarananda Ashram Himalayas,
Muni-ki-Reti, on 30th December 2019

A few Students, the Principal Madam, some Teachers and Staff from one of the many
Omkarananda Hill-Schools, the Swami Omkarananda Junior High School, Shrikot,
Ganganali, Dist. Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand, had gone on an Educational Tour.
One of their tour destinations were the Headquarters of Omkarananda Ashram Himalayas,
with its beautiful Temples. All of them were heartily welcomed by
Shri Swami Vishveshwarananda, President Omkarananda Ashram Himalayas and
Shri R. S. Rawat, Inspector, Omkarananda Hill Schools.

Shri Swami Vishveshwarananda Saraswati guided the Students and Teachers for
Darshan of the different beautiful and colourful Temples of Omkarananda Ashram Himalayas,
which are mostly built in the divine South Indian Style. Then all assembled at the entrance of
the Temple Hall of Omkarananda-Kamakshi-Devi Mandir for a photo, with Swamiji in the centre.

After all the Students and Teachers could enjoy a nice hot tea and biscuits,
they met Kumari Somashekhari, General Secretary Omkarananda Ashram Himalayas
and Indian Classical Dancer and Musician. On request of the Teachers and Students,
Kumari Somashekhari was singing for them a devotional song in Garhwali,
the local Himalayan language.

Before the Teachers and Students of the Swami Omkarananda Junior High School,
Shrikot, Pauri Garhwal, continued their journey, they had a final group photo
with Shri Swami Vishveshwarananda and Kumari Somashekhari.

The Students of Swami Omkarananda Junior High School, Shrikot, have entered the bus,
which will bring them to more destinations of their Educational Tour. Principal, Teachers
and Students were very happy and thrilled about their short but sweet stay in the
Headquarters of Omkarananda Ashram Himalayas. All of them repeatedly requested
Swami Vishveshwarananda and Kumari Somashekhari to come and visit them soon,
in Shrikot, Pauri Garhwal. This School, with its lovely and joyous Students and Teachers,
is one of the many Omkarananda Himalayan Hill Schools. By the infinite Compassion,
Grace and Support of Sadgurudev Shri Paramahamsa Omkarananda Saraswati,
these Schools are a precious gift of very much necessary Education, provided to
Thousands of Children in the neglected Hilly Himalayan Areas of Uttarakhand,
where the weather conditions are often very harsh. The Heart of the Supreme
Divine Mother, Shri Parvati Parameshwari, is surely pleased with this Divine Work
and Mission, which is continued uninterruptedly by Swami Omkarananda's Successor,
Shri Swami Vishveshwarananda Saraswati and his Team.
