Surat : Muni Shree Udit Kumarji and Muni Shree Mohit Kumarji hosted a symposium on the “Need for Human Values in Life” at Terapanth Bhawan, City Light, Surat, where prominent members of society and scholars debated a wide range of issues related to this topic.

Shri Bharat Shah (Chairperson – Chhaydo), Ashok Kanungo (Trusty – Lions Cancer Charitable Trust), Sanjay Surana (Director – Surana Builders), Ankesh Shah (Trusty of Sabri Chatralay – Dharampur, Gujarat), Sanjay Jain (Chairman – Bhagwan Mahavir University), Shri Babubhai Patel and Shri Vishvesh Sanghavi director of City Tadka & Ghumau Kya coordinated the symposium, which was held under the Acharya Shri Mahashraman Akshay Tritya Pravas Vyastha Samiti.

In his opening remarks, Muni Shree Udit Kumarji remarked on how timely the discussion of “The Need for Human Values in Life” is. So, the question now is whether or not we have lost sight of what it means to be human. Our nation’s culture, heritage, and pride ensure that human values permeate every aspect of our lives. Only a small number of people actually lack basic human decency.”

“In places where we find human values are dormant, we must do the simple work of awakening them and bring them fully into consciousness. In their interactions with the public, Mahapurushas, saints, and dignitaries all aim to teach people moral and ethical principles. Religious and spiritual leaders (mahapurushas, dharmacharyas, etc.) may have different philosophies, but they all agree on one thing: “Sarvajan Hitay, Sarvajan Sukhay.”

“To preserve human values, it is necessary to cultivate the consciousness of compassion within us and manifest the feelings associated with humanity,” said Muni Shri Mohjit Kumarji. Our sages taught that all people, regardless of their faith or social group, share a commitment to upholding universal moral principles, and that individuals should make an effort to connect these principles with their own personal experiences.

Drug free, human values and moral campaign from Anuvrat movement of Terapanth Dharmsangh

In Anuvrat, the importance of self-discipline has been told, that is, we should discipline ourselves and there is a whole process to discipline. Who started the Anuvrat movement? It is noteworthy that the Anuvrat movement was started by a Jain Acharya. Jain Acharya, Jain Sadhus etc. follow the code of conduct readily, but Jainism never became an obstacle in the promotion of Anuvrat. When Acharya Shri Tulsi, the originator of the Anuvrat movement, was asked to introduce himself, he said that first of all I am a human, then I am an Indian, then I am a Jain and after that I am an Acharya of a sect in the Jain tradition.

Shanti Doot Acharya Shri Mahashramanji has travelled approximately 55000 kilometres to spread the reputation of human values. His journey’s first motto is “goodfaith” (sadbhavana). If a person has goodwill, it will manifest itself in his life.

Acharya Shri Mahasraman ji will begin his Surat tour on April 22, 2023.

In the coming days, Acharya Shri Mahasraman ji will arrive in Surat on April 22nd. He will make a brief visit to Bhagwan Mahavir University. During this period, such symposiums must be held on a regular basis in order to spread a distinct aroma of human values.
