Celebrations of Janmasthami 2022

ātmano mokshārtham jagad-hitāya cha

The core of the Vedantic Centre Geneva is a spiritual community. The particularities of this Centre are its openness vis-à-vis different faiths or spiritual groups, the accent given on the interior transformation without forgetting the duty towards the marginalised, and its engagement in the inter-religious dialogue. The community around us is attracted by the harmony between the Vedantic vision and modern findings in the domain of physics, and the potentiality of applying this vision in modern lives lived in the midst of almost perpetual stress. A committee, consisting of persons living in the Greater Geneva zone, looks after the organisational aspect of the Centre, and a monk caters to the spiritual need of the community

Depuis deux ans, la pandémie, qui balaie le monde, semble affecter la société humaine et la civilisation moderne de différentes manières. Cette situation ressemble à une guerre mondiale contre un ennemi invisible.

Mais nous ne devons pas négliger nos acquis. Collectivement, la société a montré partout des signes de résilience. De plus en plus d'êtres humains ont pris conscience de leur lien avec la nature, qui ne doit pas être surexploitée. Nous sommes plus conscients de la nécessité de soutenir les personnes dans le besoin et de la valeur des rapports avec les autres pour améliorer nos santés mentales. Enfin, le rappel massif que notre existence physique n'est pas éternelle, est en soi une poussée vers la spiritualité. 

Le Centre Védantique vous souhaite à tous une bonne année et une élévation de la conscience spirituelle.

What is the mythological basis of Durga Puja?

What is the mythological basis of Durga Puja?  Several mythological legends have commingled to form the basis of Durga Puja.  These are mentioned below: Before fighting Ravana, Sri Ramachandra was advised by Narada to propitiate Devi Durga.  According to Hindu mythology, during the six months of the sun’s southward journey the gods remain asleep.  (They remain awake…

Mother Worship in India

Worship of God as Mother has prevailed in India from prehistoric times.  It was perhaps in vogue in Mohenjodaro-Harappa civilization.  In the Rig Veda, there is a wonderful hymn known as Devi-Suktam (which is chanted during Durga Puja days) in which the Divine Mother declares that She moves with the Rudras, Vasus, Adityas, and all other gods,…

Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission are worldwide, non-political, non-sectarian spiritual organizations which have been engaged in various forms of humanitarian, social service activities for more than a century. Inspired by the ideals of renunciation and service, the monks and lay devotees of the Math and Mission serve millions of men, women and children, without any distinction of caste, religion or race, because they see the living God in them

The ideology of Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission consists of the eternal principles of Vedanta as lived and experienced by Sri Ramakrishna and expounded by Swami Vivekananda. This ideology has three characteristics: it is modern in the sense that the ancient principles of Vedanta have been expressed in the modern idiom; it is universal, that is, it is meant for the whole humanity; it is practical in the sense that its principles can be applied in day-to-day life to solve the problems of life.

The emblem of the Ramakrishna Order designed by Swamij is a unique and unparalleled work of art created by one of the richest minds in contemporary history in an exalted mood of spiritual inspiration. It is a profound symbol of harmony and synthesis for reverential meditation  in this present age of conflict and disharmony. This symbol is the epitome of Swamiji’s message of harmony and synthesis, leading to life’s fulfilment. This is indeed the most eloquent expression of what he really preached, what he wanted every man and woman to be, to realize, either in the East or in the West.
