Governor Mangubhai Patel has said that an all-religion prayer meeting is a programme to remember the memorable events related to great men and to implement their high ideals in one’s life. Taking inspiration from the ideals of lives of Mahatma Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shastri and following them is a true and meaningful tribute to them.
Governor Patel was addressing the public meeting after the all-religion prayer meeting organised at Gandhi Bhawan today. The gathering was organised by the Gandhi Bhavan Trust on the occasion of the birth anniversaries of Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi and former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri.
Patel said that the programme organised in the memory of Mahatma Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shastri is an opportunity to understand their moral values ??and ideals and implement them in our lives. He said that Gandhiji’s favourite bhajan ‘Vaishnav Jana To Tene Kahiye Je Peer Parai Jaane Re’ tells how a true, good man should be.
Patel said that every line of the bhajan talks about those qualities which are the basis of humanity. To sing the bhajan and be determined to bring its sentiments to life is to pay tribute to Gandhiji. He said that it is the responsibility for everyone to inspire children and future generations by imbibing the life values of Gandhiji and Shastriji. Parents have huge responsibility of educating their children. Children learn by observing their actions and behaviour.
