Inaugurating the newly-built youth training centre of Brahma Kumaris organization - ‘Sangam Tirthdham’ - Gujarat Chief Minister Shri Narendra Modi today stressed for inculcating moral values and magnificence of Indian culture into the youths in order to free the society from various defects.
The youth training centre, managed by the Brahma Kumaris organization, will endeavor for realizing Swami Vivekananda’s dreams for India. The Chief Minister inaugurated the ‘Sangam Tirthdham’ located at Mahadevnagar at Navrangpura area through the remote control from Gujarat university convention centre.
Speaking about the importance of training Shri Modi said that training is necessary for all as no one is complete. He stressed for adopting good habits that shape the body, mind and intellect, hence shaping the life.
In a lighter tone he said that leadership training is important in the field of politics too, but for years the political field has remained indifferent towards this requirement.
He expressed anguish that an ancient healthcare system like Yoga is being coloured with the shades of communalism. Value-based education is also being weighed on the scales of secularism and non-secularism, he said.
If our cultural values have a strong base, the society will automatically remain free from the shackles of social ailments. But the politicians of our country have ignored the Indian culture for the sake of their selfish interests of vote-bank politics. In such an atmosphere the organizations like Brahma Kumaris have sustained the values of Indian culture, said Mr Modi.
The Chief Minister said that Gujarat has given prime importance to skill development in its celebration of Swami Vivekananda’s 150th birth anniversary. “And just today the Government of India gave Prime Minister’s award for skill development to Gujarat. This has stitched the lips of those who spread lies for defaming Gujarat”, he said.
Spiritual head of Brahma Kumaris Dadi Jankiji lauded Gujarat’s contribution in the spread of the organization’s activities throughout the world, and gave blessings for bringing about social change through the synergy of political and spiritual powers.
Convener of Brahma Kumaris Yuva Parishad Brahmakumari Chandrikaben gave outlines of activities of the training centre.
