Annual Mahamantra Writing Contest 2018

Every year, Rama Navami is celebrated by the entire fraternity of GOD across the country in a unique manner – through ‘Mahamantra Likhita Japa’ – Mahamantra Writing Contest.

The contest is opened out to all ages weeks before Rama Navami and closes a few weeks after Rama Navami. The most lavish ‘Mahamantra Writers’ among the young ones are chosen and rewarded.

This year too, the Mahamantra writing contest began a few weeks before Rama Navami and ended on April 15th. And this year’s contest set new benchmarks and beat record of sorts!
