PUJYA SWAMI CHINMAYANAND'S VISITS TO REWA
Like light spreads from the east as the Sun raises each
morning- H.H. Swami Chinmayanand ji came to Rewa for the first
time in May 1953 and brought with him the light of knowledge. He
spoke on the Kenopanishad and the Yagna lasted for a full 30 days.
He had been invited by his classmate of the Lucknow University,
Shri K.K. Sharma. Shri Sharma was an ‘IAS officer and was then
the Chief secretary of the part ‘C’ state called ‘Vindhya
He came 'to make HINDUS-HINDUS' as he had declared in his
first Yagna in Chennai in 1951. His visit to Rewa was the initiation
of the spiritual awakening of this small place that snuggles in
the very heart of our country.
