The Blessings of Divinity...in August

A Quiz on Swami's Life and Mission

Last month you may have attempted our Quiz which tested your knowledge of the milestones in Swami’s life in the month of July. Every month is special, for most of its days have been hallowed by Bhagavan's divine Sankalpa as anniversaries when He started projects and undertook actions that stand as testament to a life Divine. As before, we have selected the current month, now August, and found how with each action Swami has given us glimpses into His Divine plan and examples for us to follow.

The Quiz format is designed to test and also tell you about the milestones in the life of our Lord. Don't worry so much if you cannot get them all right as you can teach yourself the answers and learn more about Swami simply by doing this quiz.
