New Delhi, Nov 21: Vice-President Jagdeep Dhankhar stated that India is on the verge of becoming a world leader, driven by its cultural heritage and groundbreaking initiatives for women and youth empowerment. Institutions like Santhigiri Ashram are catalysts in this comprehensive endeavor.
Dhankhar dedicated the Silver Jubilee Centre at the Delhi branch of Santhigiri Ashram to the public, commending the ashram’s role in bringing about revolutionary social change in just 25 years. He emphasized the need for a mindset aligned with India’s civilizational ethos, focusing on empowering minds through skill development rather than just pockets.
The Vice-President lauded the ashram’s remarkable 25-year journey, catalyzing significant social change and playing a pivotal role in transforming India. He expressed deep gratitude and inspiration from the principles advocated by Santhigiri Ashram.
Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, present at the event, highlighted the institution’s importance as a major spiritual, developmental, and social entity. He praised the ashram’s commitment to “Annadanam” (Food for all), “Adursevanam” (Healthcare), and “Aatmabodhnam” (spiritual realization).
Santhigiri Ashram’s contributions in healthcare, preventive healthcare, Ayush, and skill development were acknowledged. Dhankhar met Her Holiness Shishyapoojitha Amritha Jnana Thapaswini, the present Guru Apparent of Santhigiri Ashram, and offered prayers at the prayer hall.
The Silver Jubilee Centre at the Delhi branch serves as a hub for coordinating various spiritual, cultural, and healthcare activities, as well as skill development and public healthcare initiatives.
