Pujya Bhaishri encourages scientists referring to Chandrayaan-2 on Day 4 Gondal Katha
Pujya Bhaishri said that Bhagavat is the medicine to treat from attachments and desires from material pleasures in this world. This medicine is not bitter. It is sweet and to be drunk from the ears instead of the mouth. It provides joy to the ears and heart.
Live life such that as much as possible we do not fall ill. For a Yogi, becoming ill is a wonder as a Yogi removes troubles. A Yogi is one who lives in harmony and balances food intake and pleasures as well as sleep and wakefulness. One who stays awake too much cannot be a Yogi, one who sleeps plenty cannot be a Yogi, one who eats excessively cannot be a Yogi and one who starves greatly cannot be Yogi. A Yogi is a balanced personality. A Yogi lives in harmony in happiness and sorrow. A Yogi remains steadfast during gains and losses.
Pujya Bhaishri referred to Chandrayaan-2 and said that he had stayed awake to see it landing on the lunar surface but we missed this by seconds. Science is a continuous journey. A scientist learns through mistakes. One who improves from mistakes is a human being. In Science, there is no end-point to the truth whereas while in spirituality, the Supreme Truth exists who we refer to as the Supreme Almighty. The developments of the scientists continue and they have also been encouraged by the Prime Minister, Honourable Narendra Modiji. We will send another Chandrayaan as there is no talk or question here of failure.
In his meeting with the journalists, Pujya Bhaishri talked about the health of education and his childhood. He announced that he will be suggesting to the Chief Minister of Gujarat and the Prime Minister that there be educational institutions like Sandipani Vidyaniketan and Sola Vidyapeeth in Gujarat to prepare more Rishikumars in Sanskrit and preserve our mother tongue.
Pujya Bhaishri also said that hard work is necessary in life. He raised his concern on the westernisation of the youngsters in current times along with learning English. Pujya Bhaishri said that it is important to learn English since it is an international language but we must be careful that we are preserving our culture and values at the same time. It is important that along with students leaving institutions like Sandipani and Sola Vidyapeeth who are competent in Sanskrit, other people become eager to learn Sanskrit.
Day 5 ended with joyful celebrations of Shri Krishna janma at Gondal.
