Statue of Compassion
It is most heartening to note about the installation of a statue of Jagadguru Sri Ramanujacharya Ji at Dwarka, Gujarat. This initiative by Sri Yadugiri Yathiraja Mutt, Kamataka to install statues of Jagadguru Sri Ramanujacharya Ji in various cities of the nation is laudable.
There could not have been a more apt choice than Dwarka for the unveiling of the ‘Statue of Compassion’. Dwarka is home to the Dwarkadhish temple of Bhagwan Shri Krishna, whose sublime message inspired people to inculcate compassion and sensitivity towards all.
A philosopher, thinker and social reformer, Jagadguru Sri Ramanujacharya Ji spread the values of spirituality and service. Due to his compassion towards every section of society, he started a movement to build an inclusive society and remove social discrimination in any form.
Spirituality has been India’s inherent strength for centuries. It is our duty and responsibility to pass on the rich legacy of wisdom and knowledge for the benefit of generations to come. The more our youngsters learn from the life and teachings of Jagadguru Sri Ramanujacharya Ji, the deeper will be their connect with our rich traditions and glorious culture.
Amrit Kaal is an occasion to fulfil the vision of building a New India that is strong and self-reliant. The period till the year 2047 provides an opportunity to individuals and institutions to play a crucial role in this endeavour.
May the ‘Statue of Compassion’ provide inspiration to the people to tread the path shown by Bhagwan Shri Krishna and Jagadguru Sri Ramanujacharya Ji.
