"Swami Omkarananda, 65, who founded the center in 1984, plans to lead a special prayer for world peace and prosperity at 3 p.m., followed by silent meditation. Every year, people of all faiths and backgrounds have come together at Badarikashrama to enjoy the spiritually uplifting celebration, he said."
