New Delhi: President Pranab Mukherjee has condoled the passing away of Swami Nityananda Maharaj, the Founder Secretary of Ramakrishana Vivekananda Mission.
In a condolence message, Mukherjee said: "I came to know that our most respected Swami Nityananda Maharaj has left for heavenly above (Ramakrishnalok). I expected that he would be cured after getting treatment at AIIMS, Delhi. But the wish of the Almighty was otherwise and he left his worldly body."
"One cannot express condolences for a Monk who is detached with the materialistic world, so I am offering profound respect to this noble soul. May his efforts spread with new zeal," he added.
