Dear members, friends and devotees,
In response to the repeated requests from the management of Vivekananda Vedanta Society of British Columbia, Vancouver, the Board of Trustees of Ramakrishna Math in its meeting held on 26th of March 2019 decided to affiliate our Society with Ramakrishna Math, Belur. In the same meeting the trustees also appointed Swami Vimohananda (Shridhar Maharaj) minister-in-charge of the Vivekananda Vedanta Society of British Columbia in Vancouver.
Swami Vimohananda is in the process of getting his Immigration procedure completed. The original date of his arrival was given as August. But according to the latest information we have, the date has been postponed till the middle of November. So, we just have to be patient and wait for his arrival. If there are any further updates about Sw. Vimohanandaji’s arrival we will keep you informed.
