PM Modi arrives at Vivekananda Rock Memorial, set to meditate till June 1

Kanyakumari, May 31

Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived at Vivekananda Rock Memorial in Kanyakumari on Thursday, where he will meditate from today till June 1 evening.

PM Modi will be meditating throughout the day and night at the Dhyan Mandapam, which happens to be the same place where Swami Vivekanand meditated.

Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Modi offered prayers at Bhagavathy Amman Temple in Kanyakumari, after the culmination of the Lok Sabha election campaign.

The Prime Minister was seen wearing a ‘dhoti’ and covering his upper body with an off-white coloured shawl.

Prime Minister Modi concluded his election campaign in Punjab’s Hoshiarpur on Thursday, for the final phase of the general elections, which will be held on June 1.

The Bharatiya Janata Party is eying its third term in office, and Prime Minister Modi has extensively campaigned for his party across the length and breadth of the country.

The Prime Minister held around 206 election campaign events, including rallies and roadshows, in 75 days. He also did around 80 interviews with different news and media platforms.

This rock on the site of the memorial had a major impact on Swami Vivekananda’s life. It is believed that like Sarnath holds a special place in the life of Gautam Buddha, this rock also holds a similar place in the life of Swami Vivekananda. It was here that he arrived after wandering across the country mediated for 3 days, and attained a vision for a developed India.

According to mythology, Goddess Parvati also meditated at the same place on one foot as she waited for Lord Shiva.

This is the Southernmost tip of India. Further, this is the place where India’s Eastern and Western coastlines meet. It is also the meeting point of the Indian Ocean, Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea. PM Modi is sending a signal of national unity by going to Kanyakumari.

The Prime Minister is known to undertake spiritual journeys at the end of election campaigns. In 2019, he had visited Kedarnath, and in 2014, he visited Shivaji’s Pratapgarh.

The election for 543 Lok Sabha seats is being held in seven phases starting April 19. The counting of the votes will be held on June 4.
