Valedictory Address at the 75th Anniversary Celebrations of Shri Ram Chandra Mission by Chief guest The Honourable Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India

India is at the forefront today in the fight against the pandemic and is providing all support to the nations who need it. It is not just our vaccines but our ancient and traditional practises of ayurveda, yoga and meditation that are coming to the aid of people across the globe in fighting the dreaded disease. There is a growing sense amongst the world population that mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being are paramount to combating the unforeseen challenges that life throws at us.

Prime Minister of India Mr. Modi has always championed the need of these ancient traditions for leading a better life and is a driving force for the rising popularity of yoga and meditation across the globe. Heartfulness, a form of Raja Yoga meditation practise has silently gained popularity and is benefitting millions of people across 160 countries. The differentiator in the Heartfulness mediation with other systems is transmission of ‘Pranahuti’ or life Force. Pranahuti is known to induce deep meditative states that are highly beneficial to the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being of a person. Relentless efforts by Heartfulness Institute (also referred to as Shri Ram Chandra Mission) over last 75 years, have resulted in increasing awareness and appreciation for Heartfulness meditation and yoga practises. Ongoing direct, public, youth, corporate and academic connect programs worldwide by Heartfulness volunteers is helping Heartfulness Institute move steadily towards its vision of enabling human transformation for leading a wholistic and sustainable life.

To mark the 75th Anniversary last year, Heartfulness Institute also unveiled the world’s largest meditation centre at its global headquarters in Kanha Shantivanam, Hyderabad.

As mark of recognition to its efforts and inspiring the organisation to continue the efforts, Prime Minister Mr. Modi will join the 75th anniversary celebrations of Heartfulness and deliver a valedictory virtually to the practitioners of Heartfulness meditation.
