Bangkok, Thailand – November 24, 2023
Amma graced the World Hindu Congress with her presence at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Hall (Royal Jubilee Ballroom) in Bangkok, Thailand. The quadrennial event, themed “जयस्य आयतनं धर्मः Jayasya Aayatnam Dharmah” (Dharma – The Abode of Victory), witnessed Amma joining hands with Swami Purnatmanda Maraj, Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanwswami, DR Mohan Bhagavat, Susheel Saraff and other esteemed dignitaries to symbolically inaugurate the proceedings by lighting the lamp.
This three-day congress brings together over 2400 delegates from more than 60 countries, engaging in seven parallel conferences focusing on diverse aspects such as economy, education and academia, media, politics, organizations, unique leadership, and the contributions of Hindu women and youth.
Amma, in her brief address, spoke about the profound spiritual heritage of Bharat. “A very powerful vibration pervades every particle of sand, every atom, and the very atmosphere of our country, Bharat. It is the vibration of Vedic chants and spiritual austerity performed by countless ancient Rishis. It is the pulsation of spiritual power. This is the invaluable speciality of Sanatana Dharma,” she expressed.
“May my children have the strength to overcome all the obstacles that they have to face in their way towards establishing Dharma. May the obstacles of the outer world never deter you. May spiritual knowledge and power help you at all times and in all circumstances” she continued.
Amma emphasized the universal essence of Dharma, stating, “Everything is governed by Dharma. Bharat is the land that has taught the world the ultimate truth. That God is not a remote, abstract concept, but truly exists within us as our very own breath—our hearing, sight, touch, taste, thoughts, and emotions. Our very pulse and circulation.”
In her heartfelt prayer, Amma invoked spiritual wisdom. “May that abundant source of spiritual wisdom, which has not yet run dry, emerge and surge powerfully like the River Ganga. May it once again spread across the land and purify the Earth. May we all take a pledge to make it so. This is Amma’s prayer to the Paramatman.”
“May the tree of our lives be rooted in the soil of love. May good deeds be the leaves and kind words be the fruits. May the world flourish as one family, united in love. May we thus be able to create a world in which peace and contentment prevail,” shared Amma.
On the conclding day, Amma is scheduled to address and bless the conference further on the 26th at 10:00 AM, offering her wisdom and guidance to the attendees. Stay tuned..click here
