During the Anugrahotsavam, Swami Jyothiramaya will interact with people, listen to their problems, bless them and pray for health, happiness and peace in their lives. Guided meditations by Swamiji and satsangs also form part of the Anugrahotsavam.

This is the first Anugrahotsavam that is being conducted in Chennai. Swami Jyothirmaya has already interacted with and blessed thousands of people during Anugrahotsavams in different parts of Kerala and Karnataka. Swami Ji will travel to other parts of Tamil Nadu after the Anugrahotsavam in Chennai.

In Chennai, Anugrahotsavam will be held at NKT School, near ICE House Station, in Triplicane on November 7, at Chinnamani KalyanaMandapam, Gangai Amman Koil 2nd Street in Choolaimedu on November 8, and at Kailash Mahal Kalyana Mandapam, near OT Bus Stand in Ambattur on November 9. Swamiji will spend November 10 at Pachaiyamman Koil, Seekanangkuppam, ECR (near Swarnabhoomi project). He will end his Chennai visit with Anugrahotsavam at the Kumaran Kalyana Mandapam on Velachery Main Road (near the Medavakkam bus terminus).

The programme will commence at 9 am each day and is open to all.

“This is the first time that Swami Ji is visiting Chennai. We invite everyone to experience the stillness of peace and love in the gracious presence of Swami Ji”, says Mrs. Akhila Srinivasan, President of Art of Living’s Tamil Nadu Apex Body and MD, Shriram Life Insurance, in a statement. “Anyone can come and meet Swamiji between 9 am and 9 pm at the different venues in Chennai”, she adds.
