A Talk on ‘ISHVARA’ by Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati

And  Saraswati Antarvahani by Kalakshetra Foundation

On the occasion of Saraswati Puja (25th October 2020), AIM for Seva presents a special virtual event in aid of education of the girl student. Highlights of this programme include a thought-provoking Vedanta lecture by one of the greatest spiritual master of contemporary times, Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati and a dance production by Kalakshetra Foundation.

The programme will begin with the dance production, ‘Saraswati Antarvahini’ by Kalakshetra Foundation. In this special dance production, Kalakshetra Foundation brings to life the concept of ‘Saraswati’ – a timeless idea that cannot be captured in a given space.

The dance will be followed by a talk by the Founder of AIM of Seva. The lecture is from the Vedanta camp held at the Swami Dayananda Ashram, Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, in April 2009 on the text ‘Hastamalakiyam‘. Through this discourse, Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati makes one understand that Ishvara is not a matter of belief, but a matter of understanding.

Says Smt. Sheela Balaji, Chairperson and Managing Trustee, AIM for Seva,” We would like to reach out through not only our Founder’s vision of empowering rural India but would also like to share Pujya Swamiji’s timeless wisdom from Vedanta with the audience in such troubled times.”

Says Smt. Revathi Ramachandran, Director, Kalakshetra Foundation, “Saraswati Antarvahani is the creative result of archaeological, anthropological and cultural findings articulated through the dance narrative that captures the pulse of the river that is intertwined with the Indian sub-continent. AIM for Seva was founded with a cause of promoting society through service. Kalakshetra Foundation is very happy to present excerpts from Saraswati Antarvahani for the virtual event that is part of the celebrations of AIM for Seva’s Saraswati Puja.”
