Invitation: Swami Purnanand ji Felicitation programme

2012 Invitation for Swami Purnanand Felicitation Programme

Mauritius has been blessed by the visit and guidance of many saintly persons. The most famous was Mahatma Gandhi who visited the island in 1901 and gave valuable advice to the then oppressed Indian indentured labourers. We are all well aware how taking the right cue from his advice the Indian community rose up against the colonial British Empire and ultimately achieved independence from the tyrannical regime in 1968.

 

Over the years, since, many torch bearers from our ancestral motherland, India, have come to spread the message of Vedic Dharma amongst the Indian population here. They stayed for variable lengths of time, and set up or helped to set up associations or formal institutions to carry on their work.

 

Many Hindu sects and missions have established themselves in Mauritius. Ramakrishna Mission, Chinmaya Mission, Divine Life Society are a few of them which were set up by the visit of religious preachers or Swamis. They are all actively contributing in strengthening and promoting our culture and religion here.

 

Unique contribution:

But, the work and mission of Swami Purnanandji is unique. He has created an indigenous mission in Mauritius. He arrived in Mauritius in the pre-independence period in 1962. He had a clear vision about the mission ahead.

 

He adopted the till then unpopular katha and bhajans to arouse the Hindu society. As expected, the bhajans and kathias soon mesmerized the Hindu community in Mauritius. In fact, it is common knowledge that bhajan and kjrtan singing groups have increased and are present in all localities, and are very active. Swami ji has performed hundreds of such kathas in so many remote villages apart from the bigger ones and towns in Mauritius

 

He established the Sarvodaya Ashram to begin with. Instead of going back to Kenya, from where he arrived here, he decided to personally continue the work in his own style of bhajan singing. This was no doubt the most appropriate method at a given period in our social and religious evolution.

 

His several ashrams in Mauritius have guest-houses where numerous religious and socio-cultural workers have stayed from periods ranging from days to years.

 

Swami ji has paid special attention to our suffering womenfolk especially the widows and those abandoned from their homes. He is considered as an elderly patriarch in thousands of families. He visits them regularly always bringing the Thakurji to bless their homes. He is always with them; whether joy or grief.

 

In recognition of the service of Swamiji the Mauritian government has rightly granted him Mauritian nationality. Swamiji was born in Bharat, grew up in Kenya, acquired British citizenship but worked all his life for the well being of the Hindu community in Mauritius. We are honoured that he belongs to us.

 

Late Ma. Bhide ji and Ma. Jagdish ji Sharda commenced visits to Mauritius in early 60’s and from then on Swami ji has nurtured a special relation with visiting pracharaks, adhikaris, karyakartas, swayamsevaks of Sangh or affiliated organizations from Bharat or other countries.

 

Late Ma. Madhavrao Banhatti who was pracharak from 1977 to 1989 in Mauritius stayed at Sarvodaya Ashram throughout.

 

Golden Jubilee of Spiritual Service

Swami ji has served Mauritius for fifty long years. Swami Purnanand ji is just not an individual He is an institution. He is among the foremost religious preachers who have left an indelible imprint in the life of Hindus in Mauritius. He is a living legend.

 

Felicitation to mark the Golden Jubilee of spiritual service

To mark the 86th birth anniversary and his 50 years of yeomen service to the Hindu community of Mauritius, it has been decided to honour this noble soul for his contribution. Since the real honour for Swami ji would be to revitalize our society with the virtues of our culture, it has been decided to organize a unique Ram Katha by Pujya Sant Atul Krishna Bharadwaj ji of Brindavan, Mathura, Bharat.

 

The purpose of the felicitation is to honour the tradition of selfless service to religion, culture and traditions which is a hallmark of Hindu society. We are enjoying the fruits of labour of our ancestors.

 

The felicitation is meant no doubt highlight the contributions of Swamiji in uplifting and propagating vedic dharma in the country. At the same time, it will be an opportunity for Hindus to reflect on the long way they have travelled since their ancestors were brought over to work in the cane fields, the dire conditions under which the latter laboured to make a living with their meagre earnings and to bring up their families, the oppressive regime to which they were subjected, their sacrifices and the tenacious spirit which made them brave obstacles to preserve their culture against all odds.

 

Pujya Sant Atul Krishna Bharadwaj ji

Pujya Sant Atul Krishna Bharadwaj ji is the founder of Mangal Bhavan Trust at Brindavan, Mathura. He is very young and is gifted with a supreme and divine talent in performing Ram Katha.

 

He has performed numerous Ram Katha in Bharat and last year organized one at Ashok Vatika at Sri Lanka. In April 2012 he travelled to Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore and performed Ram Katha aboard a cruise.

 

He was a pracharak of Sangh for some years and has drawn the lessons of rashtra bhakti and dharma bhakti from Sangh.

 

Along with the traditional message of Ram Katha Pujya, Sant Atul Krishna Bharadwaj ji will also be addressing the Hindu society on various contemporary issues that confront us today.  Visit http://www.mangalbhawan.com/

 

In a way, this felicitation through a Ram Katha will be a unique one as it is held to mark the Golden Jubilee of spiritual service of Swami of Purnanand ji who was the pioneer of the katha tradition in Mauritius.

 

Dharma Bhushan Awards

Vishwa Hindu Parishad (Mauritius) had in the past awarded the Dharma Bhushan Awards in 2001 and 2003. The first was on the occasion of Vishwa Dharma Prasar Yatra and the second on the occasion of Dharma Jagaran Abhiyaan held to commemorate the Amrut Mahotsav of Swami Purnanand ji.

 

The 3rd Dharma Bhushan Awards to ten selfless and silent social workers from different linguistic, social and professional backgrounds is also being planned to honour them for their contri­bution to the Hindu society. It is the work, of such selfless individuals that has nurtured and sus­tained our cultural heritage over thousands of years.

 

This will give an opportunity to reflect on the noble values practiced by our ancestors and also to pass to our younger generation the treasurers of our culture. This will be the humble tribute to Swami ji for the 50 glorious years of contribution that he has offered to the Hindu society of Mauritius.

A committee has to be constituted with Heads of all major national socio-cultural-religious organizations and previous awardees to select / suggest names for the D B Awards.

 

National Organising Committee

A National Organising Committee is to be constituted comprising of all the national socio-cultural and religious Hindu organizations of the country to make them aware of the importance of this event.

 

Ram Katha will be held at the Sarvodaya Ashram at Triolet and a Special Function will be held at  RTI on June 16th where concluding ceremony and felicitations will take place and D B Awards given.

About 20 families from Mumbai and Delhi are arriving to participate in the Ram Katha and be apart of the felicitation and also enjoy the spiritual beauty as well as the scenic beauty of Mauritius.

APPEAL:

Swami Purnanand ji arrived in Mauritius from Kenya. BSS adhikaris, karyakarta and awayamsevaks have long been in touch with his Naker family there.

 

The later generation of Naker family moved to UK and have established themselves in the printing business and made a mark in the industry. They have also left indelible imprints in the thousands of families, friends and well wishers connected with Sangh / Samiti / VHP / Sewa in UK because M/s Chatham Printers owned by Naker family have printed the souvenir magaziness on the occasion of 1997 Bradford Hindu Marathon and 1989 Virat Hindu Sammelan held at Milton Keynes.

 

Swami ji has also established 4 ashrams in Mauritius and is willing to give the same to VHP to further the cause of establishing Hindu awakening and consolidating solidarity.

 

In view of this background it is very essential that a senior functionary of VHP attends the function to deliver Keynote Address.
