PM Modi Lauds Brahma Kumaris, Launches ‘Azadi Ke Amrit Mahotsav Se Swarnim Bharat Ki Ore’ Project and Flags Off Seven Initiatives of the Project being conducted by BKs. Video replay link in English.

21 January 2022

Abu Road (Rajasthan): The Honorable Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi,  virtually inaugurated the nationwide launch of ‘From Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav Towards Swarnim Bharat’ Project, in collaboration with Brahma Kumaris at Diamond Hall in Shantivan.  It’s a joint venture between Brahma Kumaris and the Ministry of Culture and Tourism,  Government of India.  Om Birla,  Lok Sabha Speaker,  Kalraj Mishra, Honorable Governor of Rajasthan,  Ashok Gehlot, Honorable CM of Rajasthan, Bhupendrabhai Patel, Honorable CM of Gujarat,  G. Kishan Reddy, Union Minister of Culture,  GOI,  were the Special Guests on this occasion.

 

BK Mruthyunjaya,  Executive Secretary of Brahma Kumaris,  gave the welcome speech.  He welcomed the Honorable PM and other dignitaries on behalf of the 4000 centers of Brahma Kumaris all over the world.  He called it a Golden letter day in the history of Brahma Kumaris.

 

The Honorable PM Narendra Modi, in his address, said that Mount Abu is one such place which is nurtured by the consciousness of realized beings like Dada Lekhraj. "Today, an important campaign is taking birth here. This place has the required ‘Bhavna’ or emotion, ‘Sadhana’ or spiritual discipline and ‘Preyas’ or efforts, required for a project like this." He thanked the Brahma Kumaris family for always being connected with the dreams and aspirations of the people of India.  He remembered the love showered on him by Dadi Janki and Dadi Hridayamohini and invoked their blessings on this important occasion.  "In the progress of the Nation lies our progress.  We are creating a system in which there is no place for discrimination. We are building a society that stands firmly on the foundation of equality and social justice.  Regardless of many difficulties,  Bharat has preserved its inherent nature. Feminine power is worshipped as Goddess in our culture.  Today, during the Amrit Mahotsav, the country is remembering the history of freedom struggle and sacrifices by women and institutions like Brahma Kumaris are keeping their work alive. The road to Divinity is not possible without spiritual knowledge.  Let’s build a Bharat that has its roots in tradition and future in modernity."

 

PM Modi said that Brahma Kumaris Organization has a great role to play in building this Bharat.  "It gives me happiness to see that Brahma Kumaris are contributing to Agriculture,  Education and Health in addition to Spirituality.  These efforts by Brahma Kumaris will give new energy and new direction to the Nation.  Brahma Kumaris sisters have continuously made people aware about right food. The promotion of Organic Farming by Brahma Kumaris can be a huge step. Use of solar power in BK kitchens is inspirational.  We must get back what we lost during our subjugation under foreign rule."

 

PM Modi further said that this time of Amrit Kaal is not for dreaming while sleeping, but for fulfilling resolutions by waking up. Coming 25 years is the culmination of hard work, sacrifice & austerity. This is a period of 25 years to get back what our society has lost in hundreds of years of slavery.

 

PM Modi said that institutes like Brahma Kumaris will have to light a lamp in the heart of every citizen of the country – the lamp of duty. "Together, we will take the country forward on the path of duty, then the evils prevailing in the society will also be removed and the country will also reach new heights. There is inherent strength in our society.  Today, we focus more on rights than duties. More focus is needed on duties now for progress.  Organizations like Brahma Kumaris can enlighten people on duties to bring major social transformation."

 

Om Birla, Speaker,  Lok Sabha,  said that he is very happy to be associated on this occasion with an Organization like Brahma Kumaris,  which is dedicated to public welfare.  He paid tributes to Prajapita Brahma Baba,  Founder of Brahma Kumaris.  "Brahma Kumaris have shown the way of Rajyoga to whole humanity.  It is today the leading spiritual organization in the world.  This project is such a vision that aims to utilize the inherent powers of this nation for building the future.  Every citizen and Organization should contribute to it."

 

Ashok Gehlot, Honorable Chief Minister of Rajasthan,  fully endorsed the activities being carried all over Rajasthan under the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav Project.  He recalled his visit to Madhuban and meeting with Dadi during his childhood.  He said that he is aware of the public welfare activities of Brahma Kumaris being done continuously for many years.  "Mount Abu is known in the world today mainly for Brahma Kumaris.  The work of giving the message of Truth, Non-violence and Harmony to the world and to the next generation is being done very well by Brahma Kumaris."

 

Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel said that Brahma Kumaris are doing good work. Every individual will get benefit from Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav. He congratulated the Brahma Kumaris for sending a good message to the society  through this campaign.

 

Rajyogini BK Mohini from New York  welcomed all the dignitaries on this occasion.  She recalled that moment 86 years ago when Brahma Baba had the divine vision of a Golden Bharat, where men will live as deities and prosperity will  reign supreme. She believed in this vision and dedicated her life to it. She has been to many countries,  but not seen any other nation which is as divine as Bharat.  "We should pledge to remain soul conscious.  May our nation ever progress on the path to Divinity, giving importance to Honesty, Cleanliness and Simplicity."

 

PM Modi unveiled the year-long initiatives dedicated to Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav by the Brahma Kumaris, which include more than 30 campaigns and over 15,000 programmes and events.

 

During the event, a song dedicated to Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav was also released by Grammy Award winner Ricky Kej.
