दुःखातून बाहेर काढण्याकरिता आणि

एकमेकांवर प्रेम करण्याकरीता धर्मगुरु

आणि धर्माची आवश्यकता नाही.

वंश,जात,पंथ,संप्रदाय,धर्म,भाषा,

चालीरीती मानव जातीतील व्यवस्थापनाचा

एक भाग आहे.सजिवाला जीव लावणे

हा माझा धर्म आहे. मोबाईल मधील

बॅटरी फूल चार्ज असेल आणि आपण

रेंजमध्ये असू टार अदृश्यातुन आपण

एकमेकांशी जसे जोडल्या जातो तसाच

हा विश्वधर्म आहे.अनंत असीम अशा

विश्वामध्ये शुकदास नावाचा माणूस

हरवला आहे.त्याला कोणीच ओळखत नाही.

Religious and Spiritual lectures & discourses are organized during this glorious event. This largest single gathering of people from all castes and religions is a role model for all religions uniting together. This has been made possible on account of the social awakening brought about by Shukadas Maharaj.


Birthday of Shukadas Maharaj

Shukadas Maharaj is a "Karma Yogi" by his acts and deeds. On his Birthday, hundreds of his devotees and well - wishers come to Vivekanand Ashram to pay their respects and seek his blessings. Bhajans and Kirtans are organized in the Ashram Campus.










Other Festivals

In the earlier years there were no temples for the villagers to go and offer their prayers. They had to walk long distances for this purpose. On the request of the villagers and with many of them offering their labour free, Shukadas Maharaj organized the construction of couple of small temples in the beginning and subsequently he organized the building of two large temples. The temples being dedicated to different Hindu Gods, the villagers from far and near come to offer prayers at these temples and, at the same time, contribute small donations within their giving capacity. The Ashram conducts all popular festivals dedicated to different Gods-, Lord Krishna's Birthday, Navratri festival and Guru Purnima Poojan, etc. with the active participation of the villagers.
