New Delhi: Making a demand to declare Sri Madbhagvad Geeta as the Rashtriya Grantha of India, the Supreme Court Advocates Academic Forum of India organised a seminar at the Auditorium Indian Society of International Law, VK Krishna Menon Bhawan, here on Friday.
Addressing the lawyers of the apex court on Sri Madbhagvad Geeta’s contribution in context of constitutional imperative of equality and justice, Lok Sabha MP AT (Nana) Patil, who was the chief guest, sought the cooperation of advocates to recognise Geeta as the country’s Rashtriya Grantha. He also cited his unsuccessful attempt in the Lok Sabha to putforth a private member’s bill in this regard.
Citing that Swami Adgadanad’s commentary on Geeta as ‘Yathartha Geeta’ has broken myths related to religion, caste, Varna and Varnashankar in society, Nana said that we should make a joint effort to let this holy book become become Rashtriya Grantha.
Guest of the honour were Swami Chinmayanandji Mahraj and Swami Rajeshwaranandji Mahraj, disciples of Pramhansh Swami Adgadanandji, who enlightened the gathering about dharma and it’s true face. In a nutshell, they explained what is Yathartha Geeta and why it should reach each and every person.
Sakha Ram Singh, senior advocate and former judge of Allahabad, presided over the function. Senior advocate Balwant Singh conducted the proceedings of the seminar, while KN Tiwari coordinated to the programme.
