Ramakrishna Mission Mangaluru had organised a Jatha on 1st February 2015 to create awareness in the public about Cleanliness. Capt Ganesh Karnik, MLC and Swami Atmarupanandaji, USA flagged off the rally at Town Hall, Mangaluru. Around 500 youths had participated in the event.
Unclean earth which may be land, water or air, is always curse for the medical profession. However, keeping the earth clean without healthy mind will not serve the purpose, said Nitte Univerity Chancellor Dr N Vinay Hegde.
Speaking after inaugurating fourth day event organised under the theme Swasth Manas-Swasth Bharath for paramedical students as a part of Jagruth Bharath-Awakened India programme at Swami Vivekananda Auditorium of Ramakrishna Math here on Monday, he said that everyone may not be able to achieve the excellence of Swami Vivekananda, but anyone can follow certain qualities of his life.
“We respect earth as mother , so it is our duty to keep our surroundings clean. Swasth Manas or clean mind means there should not be place for hatredness, it should be clear and obligation is to treat the suffering. In the process you may have to sacrifice your personal life. Unless you use the knowledge you get from education to serve society, it would be a waste. Getting a job is not a big thing, but reaching the highest degree of fulfillment is necessary,” Hegde added.
Ramakrishna Math Adhyaksha Swami Jitakamanandaji said that body and mind have very good co-ordination. For the overall development of the personality, along with the physical health, one should have healthy mind. Good attitude always keeps the mind stressless and healthy. Such people enjoy the life and they can contribute more to others, he said.
Dr M V Shetty Group of Institutions’ Chairman Dr M Ramagopal Shetty also spoke on the occasion.
Senior monks of the Ramakrishna Math Swami Pitambaranandaji & Swami Atmarupanandaji, USA and Prof K Raghothama Rao and Padmabhushan Dr B M Hegde conducted the technical sessions. Around 450 paramedical students and doctors attended the function.
Deputy Commissioner A B Ibrahim said it is nice to see a nationwide movement about cleanliness. Lot of discussions are going on, awareness is being created about a very important subject which never got prominence in India. Speaking after inaugurating a session on ‘Shakth Manas – Sashakth Bharath’ for degree students on the first day of ‘Jagruth Bharath-Awakened India’, a four day programme at Swami Vivekananda Auditorium, Ramakrishna Math in Mangaluru on Friday, he said that India always tagged itself as ‘poor country’ though it is rich with youth power. From past five to six decades prominence was given to provide basic facilities and cleanliness was never considered seriously. “Now time has come for the young generation to inculcate the culture of cleanliness and it should be a part of life. Cleanliness of our mind and society are interdependent and both are important to keep our Country healthy,” he said.
A B Ibrahim opined that a lesson on cleanliness and hygiene should be mandatory on text-books. Students should be ambassadors of cleanliness and they should be the messengers to society, he said. Meanwhile, he released the t-shirts and caps for Swacch Mangaluru, a 40-week campaign which will be inaugurated on February 1.
Ramakrishna Math Adhyaksha Swami Jitakamanandaji called upon students to understand their responsibility in constructing the world. Jagruth Bharath is all about creating awareness about being model citizens of the country, which would refresh the mind, he said. He wanted active participation of students in Swacch Mangaluru Campaign.
Rev Swami Atmarupanandaji Maharaj (USA), Vijay Nath Bhat (Mysuru), Prof K Raghothama Rao (Bengaluru) and Tejasvi Surya (Bengaluru) presented their ideas in the succeeding sessions in which about 500 degree students took part.
Two days national level conference on “Celebration of 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda” began on Friday July 11 at Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara College of Business Management here.
Swami Nikhileshwaranandaji, secretary of Ramakrishna Mission, Vadodara inaugurated the conference.
“We have got the permission to celebrate Swami Vivekananda’s 150th birth anniversary for four years. So many institutions started celebrating it from 2010. But when I look here, it looks like, the celebration will continue for another year. There are 178 branches of Ramakrishna Matt and still many more branches are coming up. This is all because of Swami Vivekananda’s power,” said Swami Nikhileshwaranandaji in his inaugural speech .
“Swami Vivekananda was a true leader. He has done his work for the future generation and to understand his work, we will take more than 1500 years” he added.
Swami Nikhileshwaranandaji gave a solution to kill the laziness of everyone with humor.
“If you want success in your life, you should kill the laziness which is in you. To kill the laziness you need an AK 47 rifle. AK 47 is nothing but doing exercise in the morning,” he said.
He also spoke about how to gain success in life. He said, “If you want long term success, you should work for a long term. For this you need a long term personality development.”
“There are five types of long term personality development. One, good physical personality, second, intellectual personality development, third, mental development of personality, fourth, spiritual development and last one is moral development,” he added.
” If you want success in any field, you should have the power of concentration of mind. Many institutions provide excellent education, but they do not provide how the education on a person’s character, how to behave in the society. At present there are human monsters in the society. To find a good person, we have to use the microscope,” he said.
Guest of honour Venkatesh Baliga, editor of Kodial Kkabar, Mangalore and alumni of SDMCBM delivered the keynote address on real scope of success comes from spiritual happiness.
