Everything that is excellent will come when the sleeping soul is aroused to self-conscious activity -Swami Vivekanand
The atmosphere of District Jail, Sonipat was infused with many other similar teachings of Swami Vivekanand on the auspicious occasion of Vivekanand Jayanti, which is also celebrated as The National Youth Day.
Antarkranti organized a special 3 days event from 10th- 12th January 2016, in District Jail Sonipat, to commemorate the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekanand. The event was graced by the dignified presence of Swami Abhedanand Ji, Swami Subodhanand Ji and Swami Dheeranand Ji (DJJS), Shri Sudhanshu Gautum (CTM Sonipat), Harshali Choudhary (CJM Sonipat) and Dr. Parvesh Alhawat (PRO). Nearly 1000 inmates attended the event.
The exceptionally beautiful narration of the divine teachings of Vivekanand impressed the inmates and motivated them towards spirituality and to work on self-correction. The 3-day event was adorned with beautiful divine thoughts, shlokas from the Holy Scriptures, melodious devotional hyms and bhajans etc. that drenched the audiences in a pool of devotion.
The response of the audiences was overwhelming on all the 3 days of the event. The inmates were deeply influenced and mesmerized by the teachings and personality of Swami Vivekanand. Many of them got themselves registered for initiation into the meditation technique of ‘Brahm Gyan’.
Antarkranti received all the possible support from the prison authorities in conducting the event. The event turned out to be a huge success.
