Padmasree Swami Shivanand's felicitation ceremony was held in Kolkata recently. The 127-year-old Grihi Sanyasi was present at the ceremony. The guest of honour, former Governor of West Bengal, Justice Shyamal Kumar Sen, emphasized on the harmony of all religions. He said that even though we have lot of materialistic pleasures in today's era, we are losing our sense of values which need to be saved and for this, all religions have to be coordinated. BJP's National Secretary Rahul Sinha said that it is possible to get rid of diseases only through yoga and Swami Shivanand has worked in this direction throughout his life. We all should spread traditions like Yoga, Ayurveda.

Fr. Franklin Menzes, Pro-Vicar of the Cathedral Church, said we should be proud of Indian traditions and should spread them. Swami Siddheshwaranand of Ramakrishna Kathamrit Bhavan said that there is joy in renunciation and there is salvation in service to mankind. By following the path of Ramakrishna Paramhansa, Maa Sharda and Swami Vivekananda, we can spread humanity all over the world and further the spirit of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam. Swami Achyutananda of the International Vedanta Society said that peace can be established only by remaining calm. Former ICCR director Gautam De said that culture is the best way to reach out to people. Veer Chakra awardee Col. S. K. Puri said that traditions should not be allowed to disappear.
