Key Quotes – Main Plenary Session

Ms. Ranjana Chopra,  Additional Secretary, and Financial Adviser, Ministry of Culture: When we look back into our civilization and heritage, we understand the fountainhead of the knowledge is the revealed word by Brahm himself. Ours is a spiritual civilization, and to celebrate the civilization of land the Ministry of Culture thought, structured, and envisaged a programme that we are all a part of the programme today. We have been able to prove a platform where divine souls have come together for harmony and peace. This programme will reflect its success in how the message of unity and peace will echo throughout the world.

Daaji – Guide of Heartfulness and President of Shri Ram Chandra Mission – The world has witnessed faith and religion dividing people but we should not blame faith. Problems arise with faithful ones, not faith. We need to rejoin with each other, only when we are rejoined with each other, we can reunite with God.  We need to find answers within our hearts. There are more than 100 references to heart in Geeta. Every religion is using two weapons – fear (of hell) and temptation (of heaven). The real spiritual seeker will not fall for this and he will say I don’t even know whether God is there or not, he will say he wants to experience God’s presence in his heart. My only request is you believe, and develop faith only when you have experienced. Pray to God to reveal that.

Gaur Gopal Das (ISCKON): We should be able to handle anything in our lives. Spiritual or no spiritual, as humans we are all going to experience problems of different kinds. The problem is with life, not with death. Life is more bothering every day with challenges issues, calamities, difficulties running inner peace. The definition of peace is the absence of problems for many. Peace is equal to the absence of problems. Problems will never end. Find your peace. If I am not peaceful, how will the world be peaceful? If you cannot listen to your own voice, the whole spiritual path is a failure. Don’t waste your energies on that cannot be changed. Learn to share your own share of troubles before trying to solve the world’s problems. If you are a believer, turn to God, if a nonbeliever, turn to the universe. Turn to somebody with whom you can connect. In this world, let religions not divide us as Daaji reminds us.

Brahmakumari Usha Ben: Mahotsav is a celebration. This celebration is unique as it empowers us and we recharge our soul batteries. People might go mountains to experience peace, but while living in our place and living a life full of challenges, we need to be peaceful where we are. We need to empower ourselves with spiritual wisdom and enhance our internal power of peace. When spiritual immunity comes up, no matter what comes up in life, nothing can disturb me mentally or emotionally. In the essence of Bhagwat Gita, it is said that all that has happened is for the good and whatever will happen is for the good. Let us see life from this perspective. Finding peace with ourselves and others, let us radiate peace outward.

Chinna Jeeyar Swami – Shri Vaishnavism: It is practical when the governance is great and when the laws are perfect. Ramarajya is expected. We want Ramarajya where every citizen is respected and every part of nature is also respected. Rama appeared on this earth during Tretayuga which is 1.75 million years ago. It is said Rama’s avatar is to make a modern human being and show society how an ideal society should be. We must take Rama’s qualities as ideals. Rama entered the real world in the forest and found the real world where people are not happy, people are enveloped with terrorism in the animal kingdom and thus in the human kingdom and he thought it was not something that I needed to practice to set these things right. They should be dealt with properly and for that, he dealt with Vali, he dealt with Ravana in another way to control him. Then he returned and started inculcating that peace among human beings which was called Ramrajya. As long as there was Vali, Ravana, Rama was not able to spread the message of peace. because to practice something from within, the body should cooperate. And the body should be secured, and protected and that was lacking due to persons like Vali and Ravanas. Until terrorism was strongly taken care of and a perfect system was established to take care of the rest of the people, he was not able to establish the peaceful life that we call inner peace. We need to understand how to respect each individual. Rama was given a chance to rectify himself and not become a terrorist and be cohesive witama was not interested in taking over Ravan’s kingdom and never wanted to impose his own things on the subjects there. He allowed them to rule their own people. Today people across the world are under the clutches of terrorists. If it is just a sprouting level of terrorism, it can be addressed with inner peace. But when it started spreading its branches and roots so wide and strong, then the need is the rulership, and then perfect and stringent loss and the bureaucratic system to follow that very strictly then only the people of the land will be able to practice whatever you say, otherwise if pressure and violence is there, who will anybody practice. People need kind of a security for their food, clothes, and shelter. If the rulers of that land are able to do these things to the people first. Bharat was a place of good culture and civilization and had open hands for anybody from across the world. Bharat believed that we need to worship whatever we believe and respect the systems of the world. People of rulership in this country today are able to understand that they need to provide all kinds of security to their people of the country and empower them. Under Gareeb Kalyan Ann Yojna, our beloved PM assured people that one can get a minimum of 5 kgs of food for another five years. Assurance for their living is important so that they need not be allured by others. Rulership is great, strong, and stringent with laws, then people will have the security to turn inwards and excavate peace. As long as the ruling of the country is not strong enough to protect its own law of the land and common code for everybody, terrorism will definitely take place. The creator of human beings created them with two faults – domination and possessiveness. These two are the manufactural defects of human beings. When the rulers understand the value of following one’s own law of the land and respecting every other from across the world, then there won’t be any problem. We are fortunate to be in the ‘Amrit Kaal’. After 75 long years of independence, we have a government that understands the culture of this land and the civilization of the human race on this earth. The inner core of the culture must be brought out by bringing people together. Spirituality has so many facets, We need to respect each way. A theist and atheist must work together for the benefit of the society.

Swami Atmapriyananda (Ram Krishna Mission): Swami Vivekananda asked – Is God’s book ever finished? It is a continuous evolution going on – one page is Gita, one page is Quaran, and one page is the Bible. All the quarrels begin by saying my perception is better. Nobody can assert that there this is the only way to look at Divinity. Individual peace and world peace – Swami Vivekananda referred to it as oneness of microcosm and macrocosm. If we want to find joy, it is only in the Infinite. Without peace, there cannot be joy. Vedanta tells you to realise your infinite true nature. A conditioned mind will always put you in sorrow. The trouble is how you perceive it.
