P.P. Sarasanghachalak Mohanji’s Speech at Golden Jubilee celebration of Rashtradeep
‘Yato dharma Statojaya’: Dr Mohan Bhagwat
Cuttack,(VSK)-10th August- “The magnanimity of the deed is not important, the intention (Bhavna) behind the deed is important. Therefore the circulation figure of the Rashtradeep is not very much important for us. As the aim and objective of the weekly is to serve the people, connect them with their root and Culture,( i.e. Hindutwa.) and to help them to eradiacate the suffering, pain through information and views, it will go on it’s path with the very aim and objective in the years to come. ” P.P. Sarasanghachalak of RSS Mananiya MohanRao Bhagbatji said this while addressing the valedictory of Golden Jubilee celebration of Odia Weekly Rashtradeep. The grand function was held today evening at Saheed Bhavan, Cuttack.
Mohanji started his speech with narrating the story of milk woman Hirabai who jumped from the Raygad Fort in the darkness of the night only to feed her child. He said deed may be big or small, but the intention behind doing this is much important.
Further he referred his previous speaker, the chief guest of the occasion educationist Dr. Achuta Samanta, Ex vice-chancellor of KIIT University, Who said “since independence, 3 democratic milestones of Bharat had shaken the whole world. These are 1947, 1977 and 2014.” Referring this Mohanji said, “all these happened due to people wanted for these. It is being said that, all this happened due to some party, other organization or due to some individual. But they were there, well much before. But the change (parivartan) did not occur. Only when people wanted the change, then only it could happen.”
Further he said, if we goes on doing the right things continuously with a noble aim, it will definitely bring change . He added, yes, it is difficult for good to counter evil, but ultimately the good prevails, Truth and Dharma wins.
Quoting Swami Vivekananda, Mohan Bhagwat said, “Swamijee said, there are numerous individuals who have worked for the society much vigorously than even Rama, Krishna and Jesus. But they didn’t want any recognition and served the society silently. Likewise we don’t work because of any recognition, silent work is our style.”
Mohanji said, “all live here in Hindusthan is Hindu. Our worshiping style may be different, even some may not worship at all, we may talk in different languages, may stay at various part of the land, we may eat different food, but we are One, one Nation We are Hindu. Those who stays in England are English, all those are in Germany areGerman, all those who are in USA are Americans, Likewise All here in HINDUSTHAN are HINDUs, so simple to understand. Hinduism is our Nationality. It’s a way of life. Unnecessarily some are confusing people.” Mohanji said even today’s research revealed since 40,000 years or even much before that on the Indo-Iranian plate there living one species. DNA mapping confirms this.
He said, “Whole world is covered with Darkness of Adharma, Asat (falsehood), and Agyana (absence of proper knowledge). Adharma is attacking the Dharma. It happens. For this we must not be disheartened. The only way for survival of Bharat is Dharma. As long as we act according to Dharma, there is no power in the universe who can destroy Bharat. And if we forget to act according to our Dharma, then nothing in this universe can save us. As the existence of the whole world is dependant upon the existence of Bharat, the Almighty wants Bharat to exist, Grow and Lighten the whole world, Save the whole World.” ”
He further added Prior to 3000 years or since the time immemorial, Bharat was the guide to the whole world in all fields. We helped other to grow, We never hurt any country. Therefore others love us, they know our history, but we have forgotten. They are watching us with a great hope. But we are sleeping. We have forgotten our own glorious history, forgotten our ‘SWADHARMA’. We must have proper knowledge about SWA and DHARMA. Hinduism is SWA of Hindu. When somebody tries to rise the SWA of Hindu, some are crying communal, communal. Hinduism or Hindutwa is our Nationality. It is neither any worshiping style, nor any creed, place nor sect. It is an Identity and Nationality. With our Body-mind-wit (intellect), we must try to move forward towards Atman. This is our Dharma, this is Hindutwa.”
Mohanji concluded, “Since 50 years Rashtradeep has struggled much, but the journey never stopped and will never do so. As the situation of our motherland is not changed satisfactorily. People are still suffering. They are not in good state of health, mind, and soul. So Rashtradeep will glow, burn itself to enlighten the society. We will change the Dil (heart), Dasha (situation) but will never change the Disha( Direction).
