Since early 2016, our Samiti has focussed on Sister Nivedita and her contributions to the education of girls and women; to India as a whole; and to further Swami Vivekananda's message of Vedanta for the West. This is her 150th birthday anniversary.
We conduct Study Circles on the Writings of Sister Nivedita on the first Saturday afternoon of every month from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. at the Vedanta Society in Sacramento. We have explored Nivedita's "An Indian Study of Love and Death"; The Master as I Saw Him; and Notes of Some Wanderings with Swami Vivekananda.
Pravrajika Vivekaprana, a senior sannyasini of the Sri Sarada Math, India, presented "The Guru-Disciple Relationship between Swami Vivekananda and Margaret Noble"(Sister Nivedita). This inspiring talk was given last fall, 2016 at the Unitarian Church in Oakland at which Swamiji spoke in March, 1900.
This Power Point on Sister Nivedita was created by Pravrajika Divyanandapranaji of the Sri Sarada Mission, New Delhi, as a part of the 150th Birth Anniversary Celebrations of Sister Nivedita.
This video on Sister Nivedita's Home restoration in Kolkata is most inspiring. Several other video links are also included.
There shall be many opportunities to celebrate the 150th birthday of Sister Nivedita, the chief woman disciple of Swami Vivekananda.
