On this occasion Sri Swamiji Maharaj, in his very thought provoking discourse on the subject of “Stress management’ said that, "Ego is the principal cause of our stress. Ego of power, position, cast, creed, color, sex, money, none of these are permanent. Let us try to be humble, noble and simple, forget and forgive, love all and hate none. We should not forget that we are Indian first. Our culture is based on the foundation of truth and non-violence. Wherever we may be, we should remember that harmony, mutual love, mutual affection, mutual reverence only can bring peace within and without. Kindly do not make independent groups. Be one, get together and think we are Indian.We belong to one family, family of a great land, a land of Himalayas and mother Ganges.We belong to a great heritage of Vedas, Puranas, Bhagavad Gita, and Holy Granth Saheb. We are linage of Sri Ram, Krishna, Nanak, Kabir, Mira, Tulsi, Tagor and Mahatma Gandhiji. Remember our culture is not Tajmahal or classical music, dance, dramas or caves of Ajanta and Illora. Our culture is Satya, Ahimsa and Universal love. Adhere to truth, be kind and be compassionate.You all will live in peace, bliss and illumination".
Sri Swamiji emphasized upon daily prayer, meditation and readings of traditional literature of Sri Shankara or Ramanuj etc., to strive for the higher values of the life. This entire function was organized and planned by “Bharat Seva Ratna”, Dr. Naranjan Dhallaji's great efforts.
