Vedic way to tackle the menace of terrorism, says L.K. Advani
“The teachings of Vedas have great relevance in human civilisation and they teach us about the values of unity in diversity,” said leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha, Shri L.K. Advani at the book release function of Pearls of Vedas, authored by Kanayalal Talreja in New Delhi. Shri Advani said the success of Indian democracy lies in the fact: Ekam sat vipra bahuda vadanti. We respect all points of views and try to understand them. He added that tolerance has a major role in Indian democracy as here one respects, understands and debates on opposition’s view.
Presiding over the release function, BJP President Shri Rajnath Singh dwelt on length on spiritualism. He said Vedas and knowledge are synonymous and stressed on the significance and usefulness of the Vedas. He informed that the Vedas contain the solutions to various problems and ills afflicting today’s society. BJP Chief remembered that he had adopted Vedic Mathematics while he was Education Minister of Uttar Pradesh.
He expressed that the spirit of Vedas would be a more effective weapon in curbing the menace of terrorism and other social evils across the world. “The Vedas teach us the values of a peaceful co-existence and respecting all human beings irrespective of their caste and creed,” Shri Singh said. He added that Vedas taught the human beings about social harmony and propped the concept of treating the whole world as a family—Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam. “We do not have such teachings anywhere. On the contrary, others treat the whole universe as a bazar instead of a parivar.”
