‘Spirituality needed to balance thought pattern’
AALO, Feb 4: “Spirituality is needed in today’s life to balance our thought pattern, approach, and action,” said Rama Krishna Math Vice President Swami Gautamananda.
In his key note address at the closing ceremony of the three-day golden jubilee celebration of the RK Mission School here in West Siang district on Sunday, Swami Gautamananda, who was instrumental in shaping the school as its secretary, said the institution seeks to realize Swami Vivekananda’s vision of man-making and character-building.
Commanding officer of the 356 field hospital, Col U Nanda Kumar, said that the RK Mission made inroad into this part of the country at a difficult time to light the lamp of learning.
“Making a humble beginning in 1966 with a thatched school building, it has blossomed into a big institution to produce many luminaries of the state,” he said, and exhorted all stakeholders to give their best to keep it up as a centre of learning.
Secretary of the Vivekananda College, Chennai, Swami Sukadevananda, Swami Purnajnananda, Bodatmachaitainya Maharaj, and ex-students Kenjom Ete, (Chief Engineer, PWD) and Jarjum Gamlin also spoke.
Prizes were given away to the winners of cultural, sports and literary activities, and a CD containing a documentary on RK Mission was released on the occasion.
Chief Minister Pema Khandu, who was scheduled to attend the programme, could not make it due to inclement weather, but his goodwill message to the institution was read out. (DIPRO)
