Vivekananda Kendra has got a new building at Pan Bazar, Guwahati. The Griha Pravesh of this building at Panbazar, Guwahati was solemnized traditionally on Phalguna Shukla Tritiya tithi (24 February 2012).
The Ganapati Hawan started at 10.00am on the day in the first floor of the Bhawan which is meant for Vivekananda Kendra Asomiya Prakashan Vibhag (VKAPV) followed by Karma Yoga Sloka Sangraha chanting by the Karyakartas and well wishers.

The Vastu Shanti Puja was performed at 6.30pm on the day in the ground floor. The third floor of this Bhawan is the Pranta Karyalaya of VK Assam Prant.
The entire day was blessed by the presence of different stake holders of Kendra. The multi purpose activity centre which has come up in a centrally located plot of land in the Guwahati city is donated by Smt Savita Goswami and Smt Subrata Barua for the noble task and definitely the contribution and support from different well wishers has helped to move the first phase (Bhawan Nirman) of this effort successfully. Presence of Mananeeya Balakrishananji was very encouraging and inspiring.
