Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 11 remembered two important revered personalities and said the duo have a lot to teach the entire humanity
Bengaluru: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 11 remembered two important revered personalities and said the duo have a lot to teach the entire humanity. September 11 marks the birth anniversary of Acharya Vinoba Bhave and Swami Vivekananda's famous address in Chicago.
Modi in his tweets said," Today, on 11th September we in India mark two important milestones. The Jayanti of Acharya Vinoba Bhave. The day Swami Vivekananda delivered his outstanding address in Chicago. These great men have a lot to teach the entire humanity."
Remembering Bhave, Modi wrote, "In 1918 Mahatma Gandhi wrote about Bhave that 'I do not know in what terms to praise you. Your love and your character fascinate me and so also your self-examination. I am not fit to measure your worth'."
PM added that Vivekananda's address in 1893 perfectly demonstrated the spirit of India's ethos and the values that are an integral part of our land, as he urged youngsters to read the text of his address. He also tagged a link of the address.
"The world remembers 9/11 for the dastardly attack on this day in USA. If only humankind had walked on the path of 'Jai Jagat' given by Acharya Vinoba Bhave & Swami Vivekananda's message of Universal Brotherhood given in 1893, the destruction that followed would not have occurred," Modi added.
