‘Geeta energized our freedom fight’: PM Modi
PM Modi also spoke about how philosophers and saints like Adi Shankaracharya, Ramanujacharya, and Swami Vivekananda perceived the Gita dynamically, sharing how it had also influenced freedom fighters such as Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and Bal Gangadhar Tilak.
“Adi Shankaracharya, who tied India in the thread of unity, saw the Gita as spiritual consciousness. Saints like Ramanujacharya put forth the Gita as an expression of spiritual knowledge. For Swami Vivekananda, the Gita has been a source of unwavering diligence and indomitable confidence,” he said.
“The Gita was a true embodiment of knowledge and humanity for Sri Aurobindo. Geeta has been a pioneer in Mahatma Gandhi’s most difficult times. The Gita has been the inspiration of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s patriotism and valor. This is the Gita, which was explained by Bal Gangadhar Tilak and gave new strength to the freedom struggle,” he said.
Urging people to introduce the holy text to the younger generations, PM Modi said, “All of us should try to put this side of the Gita in front of the country. How Geeta energized our freedom fight. How Gita tied the country to the spiritual thread of unity. We should research, write and introduce these to our younger generation.”
Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha and Dr Karan Singh were also present during the manuscript inauguration.
