Your generous contributions shall immensely help Arya Samaj Chicagoland in spreading the message of Vedas, Indian Culture and Ethical values which we all cherish.
I also hope that we shall keep on persuading Next Gen which is under tremendous pressure to face new challenges in this highly competitive world to spare a thought and spend sometime in imbibing those values in their lives.
I also hope and request you all that do spare tome on Sunday mornings and attend the weekly Satsang which, not only satisfies our souls but also is a unique occasion to socialize and exchange views.
Thanking you all once again.

President’s Message on “Vishwa Chetna Mahayajna”
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
We shall be meeting this Saturday and Sunday, July the 27th and 28th of 2013 to celebrate “Vishwa Chetna Mahayajana” graced by Vedic Scholars from India and other places of the world.
It gives me great pleasure in inviting you all to this occasion when we shall sit together with a few of the renowned Vedic scholars, specially flown from India and Holland to enlighten us with the true knowledge of Vedas and other related scriptures.
In 2012 we celebrated “ Vishwa Kalyan Mahayajna” in the spirit of the Sutra “ सर्वेभवन्तुसुखिनःसर्वेसन्तुनिरामयाः।सर्वेभद्राणिपश्यन्तुमाकश्चिद्दुःखभाग्भवेत्” “ praying for the welfare of all the living beings known or un-known to us and thus sent the message of universal brotherhood. We all know that such a philosophy can only come from Vedas as they were given by the almighty without fear or favor and for the benefit of all.
A year has since rolled. We lost Mr. Mrs. Bhagat ji, a sincere and committed couple whose presence gave us the strength to continue with this mission. They shall always live in our hearts.
We are however pleased to put on record that Arya Samaj has been able to successfully continue with its mission of spreading the message of Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati by reminding the people regularly of Ten Principles of Arya Samaj that guide us towards living a good life not for ourselves alone but for the common good of society and a passion to help others.
The name “Vishwa Chetna Mahayajna” has been very aptly given to this year’s event as the human race as whole is rushing at a frantic speed to achieve materialistic goals with a self centered attention.These goals however have not been able to enhance the happiness index for which we all internally strive for.
We hope the occasion of “Vishwa Chetna Mahayajna” shall help us in conducting introspection and thus making us aware of the right path and philosophy to be followed for true happiness in life.
I repeat my request that I made last year on the occasion of Vishwa kalyan Mahayajna, to all who shall read my message, to involve their next generations, to partake in learning and spreading the teaching of Arya Samaj in order to make their lives more fulfilling and happy.
Your presence shall be our privilege as we shall all sit together and listen to great Vedic Scholars and enrich our lives by sharing their knowledge and experiences.
Dr. Sukhdev Soni,
Arya Samaj Chicagoland
