On the occasion of Swami Vivekananda’s 158th Birth Anniversary today, I would like to share this blog entry on Kasar Devi that is featured on varunaraina.com. Written by an adept mountaineer, trekker and solo traveler, Dr. Varuna Raina of Gurgaon, you will read about the spiritual significance of Kasar Devi, and why it brought luminaries like Swami Vivekananda, Timothy Leary, Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, DH Lawrence etc. Swami Vivekananda meditated at this spot in 1890 at Kasar Devi.
I do not own the content and would recommend you to visit the original article written by Dr. Varuna Raina. This day is also known as National Youth Day or राष्ट्रीय_युवा_दिवस in INDIA.
