Swami Vivekananda propagated and disseminated the teachings of Shri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa and made them acceptable all over the world, Ramakrishna Mission Vidyapith built on his ideals is making a huge contribution in building India. Hard work is the only option for success and if the aim of achieving success is the welfare of the society then God’s blessings also received.
The foundation of the National Education Policy brought by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi imbibes the teachings of Swami Vivekananda.
The education which does not empower the common people for the struggle of life, build the character of the students, inculcate the sense of charity in the children and forge the courage in students, is incomplete and purposeless.
Indian society, especially the youth should come out of the inferiority complex of language, the greatest languages of the world are in India.
In his address, Shri Amit Shah said that if any organization runs for 100 years, then it becomes certain it runs for the society. He said that the institutions which do not run for the society, country and others, do not remain functional for 100 years and cannot work in a sustainable manner. He said that the continuation of this institution for 100 years is the result of the penance of the Ramakrishna Mission and the people running it, that for 100 years this institution has been doing the work of building character.
The Union Home Minister said that Swami Vivekananda propagated the teachings of Shri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa and made them acceptable all over the world. Ramakrishna Mission Vidyapith built on his ideals is making a huge contribution in building India. He said that Shri Vivekananda took forward the idea of welfare of the entire universe of Sanatana Dharma and the Ramakrishna Mission was established on the same ideals. The students who passed out from here in the post-independence period have contributed a lot in building India. Shri Shah said that since 1922 till now this school has completed a very difficult but successful journey. He said that without selfless work, so much fame cannot be spread in the society. He said that the path of social welfare shown by Shri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa is the right path for the country and the society.
Shri Amit Shah told the students present in the program that there is no alternative for hard work and success can only be achieved through this. He said that hard work is the only option for success and if the aim of achieving success is the welfare of the society then God’s blessings also received. If we decide that even after the welfare of our family, we will contribute in the upliftment of the whole society and the country, God will certainly bless us, and we will find ourselves at the highest level of success.
The Union Home Minister said that the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav is going on. It has been 75 years since the country became independent and the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has decided to celebrate the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav with great enthusiasm. The Prime Minister has put three goals in front of us. First, from 1857 to 1947, millions of people contributed and sacrificed in different ways in the freedom movement and our new generation should know about all those known and unknown martyrs who fought in the freedom struggle. The second goal is, we have made many achievements in every field, the journey of those achievements should also be understood by the youth. The third goal is that, on completion of 75 years, the young generation should take a resolution that when the centenary of independence is celebrated, India will be at the first place in the world in every field. Shri Shah said that the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav is not just a festival to celebrate and feel pride, but a year of taking resolutions. The period of 25 years from the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav to Centenary of Indian independence, known as Amrit Kaal of independence, is the period of doing hard work to fulfill these resolutions and this responsibility lies with us and more importantly with the children. He said that India will not be made a great nation just by prosperity, but by making India as imagined by Shri Vivekananda, which will change the way of thinking of the world by taking our core idea and the essence of Indian culture to the whole world. He said that only the youth can make India great.
Shri Amit Shah said that the country is independent and now there is no need to attain martyrdom for the country, but we should take a pledge to devote our life for the country. He said that if we set out with the goal of making India great during our lives, then no one can stop India from attaining prowess in every field.
The Union Home Minister said that the messages of Swami Vivekananda are the foundation of this New Education Policy. Swami Vivekananda had said that the education which does not empower the common people for the struggle of life, build the character of the students, inculcate the sense of charity in the children and forge the courage in students, is incomplete and purposeless. He said that in order to fulfill the goals set for us by Swamiji in India’s education system, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has formulated the New Education Policy, which will help us take pride in our language, culture and history, but also help acquire the modern knowledge of the world.
Shri Shah said that the Indian society, especially the youth of India, should come out of the inferiority complex of language. He said that our country has the greatest languages. He added that there is no harm in learning any language of the world but one should preserve and learn one’s own language as every person thinks in mother tongue only. Shri Shah said that our best ability to think, analyze, reason and take decisions takes place only in our mother tongue. He said that with the New Education Policy brought by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, the entire blueprint of our education will change. He said that along with instilling pride for Indian ethos, history and culture, the government under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi is working towards ensuring global modern education in every field in India.
