Honourable Prime Minister, wishes that HSSF continues its endeavor to propagate “SANATAN” and Universal values to spread the message of love, harmony, compassion and brotherhood.
HSSF was founded on the motto – Athmano Mokshartham Jagat Hitaya Cha…. – meaning of the Rig Veda dictum – Service to beings – animate or inanimate-is the way to attain Moksha, through main four pillars of the „Sanatana Dharma‟ viz. families, societies, economies of nations and humanity. It is important to understand humanity for which to understand life values also is equally important. HSSF has defined these life values in six basic themes :
(1) Preserve Forests and Protect wild life; (2) Conserve Ecology; (3) Sustainable environmental protection; (4) Inculcate Human & Family values; (5) Foster Women Respect and (6) Instill Patriotism.
IMCTF was founded on the Isavasya Upanishad first verse – “Isawasyam idam sarvam, yat kinchit jagatyaam jagat. Tena tyaktena bhunjita maa grudha kasya swid dhanam.. “Mahatma Gandhi explained the meaning as –“Everything animate or inanimate is the manifestation of the Divine creation”. Paryavaran Samrakshan is a wing of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh which is working for environmental protection is also associated with this programme. Living in harmony with Nature has been an integral and unique part of our Bharatiya culture and tradition. This has been abundantly reflected in a variety of traditional practices, religious beliefs, rituals, folklore, arts & crafts, and in the daily lives of the Bharatiya people from time immemorial. “Prakruti Vandan” highlights that all creations in the Universe are Inter-related, inter-dependent and integrated. The Program is about doing a symbolic “Prakruti Vandan” innovatively, keeping in mind the new norms of Social and Physical distancing and by wearing mask. This program will be live through various tools of Social media. It is expected that families perform “ Vandan” at home or Personal garden or Public gardens (with maintaining all type of physical distancing norms and wearing masks) at the same time.Vandan by doing Aarti Registration for this program in already in process through this link : https://sankalp.paryavaransanrakshan.org/sankalp/prakruti-vandana
