Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam inaugurated the Swami Chidananda Sevashram in December 2014 at the JN TATA auditorium in Bangalore, Karnataka–the birth state of our Spiritual Master Swami Chidananda. The ceremony united thousands of people from diverse collectives–spiritual leaders, monks, devotees, college students, business persons from across India and the city. Dr. Kalam shared his own insights on mystical experiences and spirituality at the event by presenting a lecture on “Ways to acquire spiritual experience.” He also engaged with the young audience and shared his love for spirituality.
On the Sevashram, he remarked, “I am delighted to participate in the dedication function of Swami Chidananda Sevashram. Citizens like us will be happy that the Ashram seeks to nurture, rejuvenate, improve wellbeing and maintain harmony and joy in the midst of today’s, stressful life, and ultimately leading individuals towards enlightenment.
