Pragativahini News, Bengaluru :
Both Samskruti and Samskar are deep rooted in India and now the ‘Bharathiya Samskruti’ is getting re-established, said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.
Speaking at a function Gita jayanti and Gita Daana Yagna organised by ISKCON in which Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh participated here on Saturday, he said the country has the western influence in 80s and 90s due to which the values had declined. The roots os Samskruti’ are deep-rooted in India and the kind Bhakti movement held here had not taken elsewhere. The experiment made by Sri Prabhupanditadasaru here failed but the similar experiment was a huge success in the United States of America. From there, he returned to India and continued his efforts. The journey of Prabhudasa shows the change in the cultural values. The stalwarts like Sri Ramanujacharya, Sri Shankarachary, Sri Madhwacharya, Buddha, Basavanna also promoted the Bhakti movement in their own way. The bhakti movement played important in India to secure independence
Bhagavadgita, a mixture of science and spirituality
Bommai said Sri Bhagavadgita is a mixture of science and spirituality, and it is one of the best epics in the world. The essence of all religions is the welfare of mankind. Lord Krishna’s advise to Arjuna in the Kurukshethra is very important. The time of preaching and the situation are very important. During that time Lord Krishna explains every aspect of life to Arjuna.
Bhagavadgita, a panacea for all
He said glancing the pages of Bhagavadgita during any problems, will give them solution and it can be tried. It is his personal experience. In every Shloka, the essence of life is given along with the solution. The role of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh is very important in taking India from Atma Nirbhara to atmavishwas (self-confidence) In the field of defence. Now, nearly 50 per cent defence equipments are manufactured locally. Soon India will become one among five nations which would export defence equipments.Lord Krishna has said “Believe yourself”. One who preached and one who heard the Bhagavadgita are really great.
