On this auspicious occasion we honour the full moon birth anniversary of HH Swami Hariharananda Paramahansa, the monastic master of HH Swami Vidyadhishananda.
Paramahansa Hariharananda was born on an auspicious combination of a full moon on a Monday, during the early morning. His birth date of 27th May 1907 is on Vaiśākha purnimā also popularly known as Buddha purnimā, as the great Gautama Buddha was born on this same Vedic soli-lunar calendar day. Swami Hariharananda’s birthstar of Anuradha naxatra (a lunar asterism) accorded him a sweet endearing voice with a feminine quality, typical of males born under this star. Incidentally, he closed his life also during Anuradha naxatra but this time on a new moon evening.
