Dedication of New Facilities At Yogoda Satsanga Educational Campus — Jagannathpur (Ranchi)
Swami Chidanandaji, revered president and spiritual head of YSS/SRF, dedicated the new facilities at Yogoda Satsanga Educational Campus in Jagannathpur, Ranchi, on January 29, in a memorable event attended by the dignitaries from Ranchi educational community, YSS monastics and devotees, faculty members and students of the YSS educational institutions. The function was attended by 1,100 people and also included a short video presentation showcasing more than a hundred years of history of the institution.
These state-of-the-art facilities were designed according to ancient Gurukul principles that Paramahansa Yoganandaji applied in his original school, such as studying in close proximity to nature. They include classrooms, laboratories, an auditorium, and an administration building. This modern school campus will be used by the students from the economically underprivileged section of society.
View below a few photos from the inaugural function.
