JAMMU, Nov 19: Deputy Chief Minister, Dr Nirmal Singh, today said that  meditation is the medium for solving  various health related issues like stress, anxiety and the onus lies on the people to follow the path as it can also lead to contentment and understanding the real essence of life and spirituality.
The Deputy Chief Minister was speaking at a function organized in connection with the celebration of 80th Anniversary of Praja Pita Brahma Kumaris Ishwariya Vishwa Vidhyalya held at the Convention Centre here today.
Several eminent personalities like Nirmala Devi and other dignitaries were also present.
Dr Singh said the path of peace and mutual co-existence as taught by Sufis and seers is a path to be followed especially in today’s context when certain forces are trying to push us into an era of death, destruction and chaos. “We should be following the path of meditation and yoga religiously as it leads to self-introspection and also gives us positive energy which in turn leads to a healthy society free from malice, hatred and violence”, he said and maintained that the Prime Minister has already taken the initiative of introducing the Yoga at global level which has been received overwhelmingly by people living in various countries across the globe.
While referring to the inclusiveness of the Indian culture, the Deputy Chief Minister said it has the unique feature of accommodation which goes with the universal doctrine of Sarva Dharam Sambhav. He said the uniqueness of our culture was rightly highlighted some centuries back by our great philosopher Swami Vivekananda when he had said that India is the epicenter of spirituality and the related thought processes. The same is being recognized globally nowadays even by our adversaries, he added.
Deputy Chief Minister later distributed awards among persons who had excelled in different fields of life.
Meanwhile, Deputy Chief Minister participated in a function organized in connection with celebration of 6th Annual function of Bharat Seva Ashram Sangha,  at Panch Garian Nagrota  after laying the foundation of a School (Vidya Mandir) being constructed by the organization.
Minister of State for Education and Tourism, Priya Sethi, prominent people from different walks of life, families in large numbers were present on the occasion.
Dr Singh while speaking on the occasion said that teachings of great saints and Gurus have great significance for promoting world peace and prosperity.
While calling upon the people to infuse such spiritual teachings in their lives to fight the challenges of today’s modern living, the Deputy Chief Minister said teachings of seers have more relevance in present time for heralding peace, prosperity and amity in the State.
Priya Sethi while speaking on the occasion said that the teachings of non-violence, truth and compassion enunciated by our seers and saints hold great significance in the present times and by following them we can promote world peace and amity.
