The Chief Minister said that from time to time many great men have taken birth in the country and guided mankind. Adi Kavi Maharishi Valmiki was also such a great man, whose guiding principles are still relevant to society even today.
By writing Ramayana Maharishi Valmiki has paved the way for the welfare of mankind, said Sh. Manohar Lal. He said that the teachings of saints and sages are an invaluable heritage for the entire humanity. Society should follow the teachings of such great men.
Sometimes in our lives, we face such a situation where we feel confused as to which path to follow, it is then with the teachings of these great men help us to choose the right path. We have to pass on the beliefs and teachings of these great men to the coming generations, said Sh. Manohar Lal.
Maharishi Valmiki is one of the main sages of Sanatan Dharma and Ramayana, the main epic of Hinduism, was written by him. He was born on Purnima (full moon day) of the month of Ashwin according to Hindu mythology. Every year during the Purnima, many religious and social events are organized in different parts of the country.
Notably, through ‘Sant-Mahapurush Samman Vichar Prasar Yojana’, the State Government left no stone unturned for ensuring to preach the messages of great men in society. The Yojana aims to pass on the teachings of such great personalities to the coming generations. The anniversaries of saints and great men like Sant Kabir Das, Guru Ravidas, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji and Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji are being celebrated by the government at the state level.
