With captions ‘India’s sunrise’, ‘When spirituality is your strength…’ and ‘Faith meets worship...’, the BJP shared images of the prime minister meditating and offering prayers at Dhyan Mandapam in the memorial, the place where Swami Vivekananda meditated.

Modi reached the coastal town on Thursday afternoon and visited the Bhagavathi Amman temple before taking a ferry to reach the rock memorial to start the meditation. On reaching the memorial, Modi showered flowers on the portraits of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, mother Sri Sarada Devi and also paid floral tributes to Swami Vivekananda, whose life-size statue on a high pedestal adores the mandapam. He later commenced the sadhana (spiritual practice) in the mandapam.

Before he embarked on the dhyan exercise, for a while, Modi stood on the stairs leading to the mandapam that offers breathtaking views of the sea that surrounds the memorial from all sides.
