150th Birth Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda

Saturday... a blissful day at PSN. Birth centenary of Swami Vivekananda.

Came across a few press reports on the occasion of Swamiji's birth anniversary. But this quote stayed on... We get so stuck to rituals.
Rituals are the kindergarten of religion - Swami Vivekananda

In the evening, the local channel that carries Swami's programs continuously, had a different program. Usually bhajans at Brindavan and other programs at Kulwant hall shown. But, yesterday it was a session with a foreign group - only Swami was to be seen, neither the group nor the translator. 

Swami made a similar point. People sit on meditation and their thoughts keep wandering. Such efforts are useless. 
Swami advised, keep saying to ourselves, 'I AM GOD'.
