Vande Mataram

Sister Nivedita Academy’s First Publication

Vande Mataram

Acharya J.B. Kripalani, the Bheeshma Pitaamaha of Indian National Movement and close associate of Mahatma Gandhi, blessed the founding of the Academy at the time of the Vande Mataram Centenary Celebrations and wrote an inspiring foreword to the maiden publication of the Academy, VANDE MATARAM by Sadhu Prof. V. Rangarajan, the founder of the Academy, who was at that time a young social worker. The book was released on the auspicious Akshaya Triteeya, April 21, 1977, the day sacred for the worship of Bharata Mata. Since then the Academy has made rapid strides by setting up three centres in India and five in South Africa, engaging itself in multifarious activities like publication of books, journal and newsletter, conducting course on Hindu thought and culture for students all over the world and spearheading a spiritual movement for collective sadhana for world peace.
