New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the 125th anniversary celebrations of ‘Prabuddha Bharata’ journal in Uttarakhand on Sunday.
Prabuddha Bharata is a monthly journal started by Swami Vivekananda from the stables of the Ramakrishna Order. PM Modi will address the event, organised by the Advaita Ashrama, Mayavati in Uttarakhand, around 3:15 pm.
The journal’s publication began from Chennai (formerly Madras) in 1896 and continued to be published there for two years, following which it started getting published from Almora in Uttarakhand.
On April 1899, the place of publication was shifted to Advaita Ashrama. “The greatest role Prabuddha Bharata played was that of publishing the Ramakrishna-Vivekananda and Vedanta literature.
Several eminent personalities such as Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Sister Nivedita, Sri Aurobindo, former president and philosopher Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan have had their imprint in ‘Prabuddha Bharata’ through their journals on Indian culture, spirituality, philosophy, history, psychology, art, and social issues.
