India’s culture, civilization revived at global level: PM Modi

Umraha(Varanasi): Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Tuesday, that the recognition which India’s tradition, culture, and civilization is receiving at the global level, is a matter of pride for every Indian.

PM has called upon the people to take a resolution to fulfill the dreams of Sadguru Sadaphaldev ji.

“These resolutions should be such in which Sadhguru’s resolutions are fulfilled and in which the wishes of the country should also be included,” he said.

PM said these resolutions should be given momentum in the next two years, fulfilled together.

“Just as there can be a resolution – we have to educate the daughter and also develop her skills. Along with their families, those who can take responsibility in the society, they should also take the responsibility of skill development of one or two poor daughters.”

“Another resolution can be about saving water. We have to keep our rivers, Ganga ji, all water bodies clean,” he added.

The PM was speaking at a public meeting held at the 98th anniversary celebrations of Sadguru Sadafaldeo Vihangam Yog Sansth here on Tuesday afternoon. Before addressing the public, PM  also paid floral tributes to Sadguru Sadafaldev ji’s statue at the Sarvendra temple. UP governor Anandiben Patel and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath were also present on the occasion.

The PM said at the time of freedom struggle, Sadhguru had given us the mantra of ‘Swadeshi’.

Today, in the same spirit, the country has now started ‘Self-reliant India Mission’.

“Today the local business-employment of the country is being strengthened, the products are being strengthened, the local is being made global,” he said in his address.

Whenever there are testing times, some or the other Saint appears to change the times. It is India where the tallest leader of freedom movement is called ‘Mahatma’ by the world.

“I bow to Sadguru Sadafal Dev ji, I bow to his spiritual presence. I also express my gratitude to Shri Swatantradev Ji Maharaj and Shri Vigyandev Ji Maharaj, who are keeping this tradition alive, giving new expansion.” he said.

PM said today is the auspicious occasion of Gita Jayanti. “On this day when armies were face to face in the battlefield of Kurukshetra, humanity got the ultimate knowledge of Yoga, Spirituality and Paramarth. On this occasion, while bowing at the feet of Lord Krishna, I extend hearty greetings to all of you and the countrymen on the occasion of Gita Jayanti,” he said.

Talking about Kashi, his parliamentary constituency, Modi said the energy of Kashi is not only intact, it also continues to take new expansions.

Embracing novelty by embracing the old, Banaras is giving a new direction to the country, he claimed.

“Yesterday Kashi offered the grand ‘Viswanath Dham’ at the feet of Mahadev. Cities like Banaras have preserved the seeds of India’s identity, of art, of entrepreneurship, even in the toughest of times.Where there is a seed, the tree begins to expand from there. That is why, today when we talk about the development of Banaras, it also forms the road map for the development of the whole of India,” he added.

PM said the beautification work that has been done in Gaudolia has become a sight to behold. “I interacted with so many people there. I also saw Banaras railway station in Maduwadih. This station has also been renovated now”.

He claimed that whenever he comes to Kashi or even stays in Delhi, he tries to keep pace with the development works being done in Banaras.

“After 12 o’clock last night, as soon as I got the opportunity, I again set out to see the work that is going on in my Kashi, the work that has been done,” he said.

After attending the function, PM is expected to wind up his two day visit to Varanasi, and leave for New Delhi. (UNI)
