Ancient Indian wisdom and spiritualism form the foundation of modern day science and even a lifetime spent in the country is not enough to fully understand the land, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said here today.
“Spiritualism leads to inner happiness and the ability to feel the presence of God in everything.
“India is a deeply spiritual country whose wisdom and spiritualism form the basis of modern-day science,” Singh said after formally inaugurating a yajna here in obeisance to Goddess Janaki (Sita).
Talking about the country’s ancient spiritual traditions, he said that scholars all over the world have acknowledged that to understand India properly, “even a lifetime spent under Indian skies” is not enough.
The Home Minister also wished for the long life of Swami Satyamitranand, the founder of Bharatmata Mandir, which had organised the yajna.
Swami Satyamitranand presented one gold-plated idol of Bharat Mata (Mother India) each to the Home Minister and noted TV journalist Rajat Sharma, who had accompanied him from Delhi.
