Every year on 1st January we chant Hanuman Chalisa 108 rounds and invoke the grace of Guru and God in the lives of all devout people in the world.

This year was even more special because, the Chidananda Centenary Ratha Yatra that came to Chennai with Swami Dharmanisthananda and Swami Siva Chidananda and a team from Divine Life Society. They were received at University of Madras Campus and the statue of Swami Sivananda was garlanded and puja was performed by devotees. Special aradhana was performed at Sivananda Foundation, Triplicane.

The whole day we chanted Hanuman Chalisa and in the afternoon the paduka of Swami Sivananda which was worshipped by Swami Chidanandaji was brought to our centre.

In the evening a special paduka aradhana was performed to Swami Sivanandaji’s Paduka, kirtans were sung followed by a special satsang by both Swamis from Divine Life Society. Devotees of Swami Sivananda from different parts of Chennai had joined us for the aradhana. The year has started in the most auspicious manner.

On 2nd January we delightfully sent Swami Sivanandaji’s paduka after an early morning aradhana!
