While the nation is celebrating 75 years of Independence under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, Maharaj Sahib’s books will be useful to make this time truly immortal.

Which happens through such Sparsh Mahotsav.
India has a tradition of festivals since ancient times with the aim of providing a new vision of living to the society. Today festivals are doing social building work by combining ancient tradition and modern technology which deserves appreciation. Referring to a Sanskrit proverb, he said, you can donate eyes to someone but not vision. The foresight of building society is found only through spirituality.
