PM Narendra Modi will meditate at Kanyakumari

New Delhi – Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be set on a spiritual journey after culminating his whirlwind campaign for the Lok Sabha elections 2024. On Thursday, Modi will be in Kanyakumari for a two-day visit while voters will vote during the final phase of the Lok Sabha polls. The PM will visit the ‘Vivekananda Rock Memorial’ where he will meditate at the Dhyan Mandapam from 30th May to 1st June. Modi will meditate at the same place where Swami Vivekanand used to mediate, which is in the southernmost city of the country.

‘Vivekananda Rock’ is a monument in the sea at Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu. It is a famous tourist spot. The monument is built on two rocks in the ocean, approximately 500 meters from the shore.

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh leader Eknath Ranade played an important role in building the Vivekananda memorial temple on these rocks.

This memorial was inaugurated by the Former President of India Dr VV Giri on 2nd September 1970.

During the Chaitra Purnima in April, the moon and the sun are seen facing each other on the same horizon.

Before attending the World Council of Religions in 1893, Swami Vivekananda visited Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu. There, at a distance of 500 meters in the sea, he saw a big rock in the middle of the water, he swam to it and sat on that rock and meditated there.

Even in the year 2019, he went to Kedarnath and meditated

This is not the first time when Prime Minister Modi has turned to spirituality during the run-up to the result of the Lok Sabha elections. In 2019, PM Modi visited Kedarnath during the last phase of voting where he meditated in Rudra cave. There he meditated for 17 hours in the Rudra cave.
