Guru Purnima Celabrated - VKV Namsai
VKV Namsai joined all the centres of Vivekananda Kendra in celebrating the Guru Purnima in a befitting manner on 05 July 2020.
We put the matter with the VKV Alumni, and a few parents and well wishers. Accordingly the programme was organized at the Buddha Vihara, Namsai. We decided to honour and felicitate the head monk Baddhante Aggadhamma.
The program began at 10. Am with the traditional Buddha chantings, where the Banthe himself took the lead. Chow Tichanam Singkai of VK, Namsai and Alumni Association gave the welcome address. Chow Thamseng Chowlik, our Class IV student made a small speech on the importance of the day.
After that it was felicitation of the head monk. He was given worthy gifts and this was followed by a speech by Chow Tewa Enling, a public leader of the area. He lauded the activities of VKVs and asked everyone to do the work on two principles such as “Bahujana Hitaya and Bahujana Sukhaya”.
After that the Banthe Agadhamma gave the Asheervachan. He said the importance of Guru Purnima in detail. He added that the present day teachers have great responsibilities. It is like moulding an ornament. The gold will be heated, beaten, flatten and so on to make a beautiful ornament. The same way the students and parents also should understand that all the pressures which the child undergoes are for making his future a bright one.
The entire programme was well planned as per the Covid 19 protocol, where sanitiser, mask and social distancing etc were arranged.
There was provision for refreshment after the conclusion from the side of the alumni group. Apart from our students children from VKV Jairampur and Sunpura also joined us.
Altogether 47 persons attended the programme
