PM Narendra Modi will address on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of Ramakrishna Vinyas’ monthly journal ‘Prabuddha Bharat’ on January 31, 2021 at approximately 3.15 pm. It was started in 1896 by Swami Vivekananda. The program is being organized by Advaita Ashram, Mayawati.
The journal ‘Prabuddha Bharat’ is an important medium for disseminating the ancient spiritual knowledge of India. It was published from Chennai (formerly known as Madras) where it was published for two years in a row and then from Almora. Later, in April 1899, the place of publication of the journal was shifted to Advaita Ashram and it has been publishing there ever since.
Some great personalities have left their mark on the pages of ‘Enlightened India’ by writing on Indian culture, philosophy, history, psychology, art and other social issues. Other influential personalities including Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Sister Nivedita, Aurobindo, former President Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan have contributed to this journal over the years. Advaita Ashram is working to put the entire collection of ‘Prabuddha Bharat’ online on its website.
