News Letter-December 2013

A few lines from a letter[Dec.11,1910 ,Cambridge,Mass.]of Sister Nivedita addressed to Holy Mother:
“Surely you are the most wonderful thing of God- Sri Ramakrishna’s own chalice of His Love for the world – a token left with His children, in these lonely days, and we should be very still and quiet before you- except indeed for a little fun. Surely the “wonderful things of God” are all quiet-stealing unnoticed into our lives- the air and the sunlight and the sweetness of gardens and of the[river] Ganges. These are the silent things that are like you.”
2. This year of 2013 is the 150th Birth Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda.[ More than a dozen of devotees from Calgary,Red Deer and Edmonton, attended the Chicago Celebration at the beginning of November.]
I would like to draw your attention to the fact that 120 years ago Swami Vivekananda landed in Vancouver[Canada] ,to attend the Chicago Parliament of Religion.
3. This is the Centennial year of Nobel Prize in literature for a Non-European Rabindra Nath Tagore[ Banerjee].
Tagore’s tribute to THE PARAMHANSA RAMAKRISHNA DEVA:
Diverse courses of worship
from varied springs of fulfilment
have mingled in your meditation
The manifold revelation of the joy of the Infinite
has given form to a shrine of unity in your life
where from far and near arrive salutations
[ Refreshment will be provided at the end of the program .]
