Vivekananda Jayanthi 2018 – Report of interactive sessions

We are very happy to share the report of the 156th Vivekananda Jayanthi conducted by Disha.

Swami Vivekananda, one of the greatest visionaries of the world, had great faith in channelizing the youth power towards nation building. His electrifying words has been motivating millions and millions of people towards serving the nation and leading a life of fulfillment.

Since 2008, Disha is conducting Swami Vivekananda Jayanti to spread the message of Swamiji to various institutions through inter collegiate competitions and sessions.

This being the 11th year, Disha celebrated Vivekananda Jayanti in a unique way reaching to a large number of youth. Two important features are –

· One-hour Interactive Sessions on “Manifest the Vivekananda in YOUth

· Highlighting the 125thanniversary of Swamiji’s speech in Chicago

Our programs were unique in both its approach and the message. First half of session included a talk on anecdotes from the life of Swami Vivekananda i.e. blemish less character, patriotic fervor, cultural ambassador and propagator of Seva and the second half was dedicated to a video interaction which focused on how present day youth can imbibe the various aspects of Swami Vivekananda mentioned above.

Disha, with a small but dedicated team, in a span of 25 days, conducted 115 sessions reaching 94 institutions taking the message of Swami Vivekananda to around 16,000 students. We reached to the urban, semi-urban and rural areas. The audience were spread across various age groups starting from high school to post graduate students.

The session ended with a few questions to be pondered over, so as to to manifest Vivekananda in them –

•      Do you wish to have a blemish less character to become a quality leader?

•      Do you wish to have that nationalistic spirit to make this nation the super power?

•      Do you wish to know and have pride in the great heritage and culture of this nation?

•      Does your heart melts at the miseries of distressed, deprived, poor and needy?
