Seva Sangamam -2023 Organizing committee Formation
From the keynote address delivered by Shri A Gopalakrishnan (Akhila Bharatiya Samyojak - Seema Jagran).
The lecture began by referring to the propriety of the formation of the Organizing committee of the Seva Sangamam on the day of Dhanvantari Jayanti itself with the main vision of "Drug-free Kerala Arogyukta Kerala".
The early Sangh activity in Kerala referred to the relevance of Palakkad, the host of the 2023 Seva Sangamam, as the soil in which it flourished, as well as bhumika who wrote several service chapters in the sangha's vision.
He explained the simple but effective doctorji's effort to inculcate patriotism, egalitarianism and a sense of dedication, and his precise vision of India's future.
Giving an example, he explained that to serve the Samaj, it takes a spirit of dedication and that even those from the economically lower strata of the society can help their fellow human beings in whatever way they can through group work.
The concept of service - to help the weak and needy lives is to worship the one and only divine spirit that actually resides in all living beings. He also described the inaction shown by the vast majority of the society in matters of service.
Seva Bharati, which was formed to work more systematically in the field of service, and a comparison was made between initial days and present.
Each of the members who participated in the formation of the organizing committee was activated by quoting the visions and good deeds of Swami Vivekananda and his disciples, as well as by quoting slokas from Bhagavad Gita.
He explained the need to infuse spirituality, devotion, service and patriotism into the minds of the people to get closer to the goal of de-addiction.
He concluded by speaking in a broad sense about the fact that the Samaj is the source of fundraising for the Seva Sangamam and the efforts to be made for it.
