TRIBUTE TO OUR GREAT LAND
The words MOTHER and MOTHERLAND strike an emotional chord with our hearts. The word MOTHERLAND is even greater as it connects us with the soil of our nation. As Lord RAMA said "Mother and Motherland are above heaven".
This the ancient land my dear friend, where wisdom made its home long before going to any other country. Even when Greece did not exist, when Rome was never thought of , Bharath existed as a very much scientifically and spiritually advanced nation. It is in this nation , long before Christ and Mohammed a distant sage arose and declared " EKAM SAD VIPRA BAHUDA VADANTI" (HE WHO EXISTS IS ONE, THE SAGES CALL HIM VARIOUSLY)
This one of the most memorable sentences ever occured, one of the grandest truths ever discovered. Ther is infallible power in this land- the power of the vedas, bestowed by Goddess Saraswati, the shrill of the conches of Krishna and Shankara & the great hymn of Omkara all these have made this land THE GATEWAY TO HEAVEN .
If there is any land that can lay claim to be the blessed PUNYABHUMI (HOLY LAND), to be the land where all the souls on this earth must come in the end to account for their karma,
the land where humanity has attained its highest state towards gentleness, kindness and genorosity, the land where Godlike men live and breathe, the land of introspection and Spirituality, it is INDIA. Here is the life giving water my friends, which can quench the fire of materialism, burning the hearts of millions in other lands..... i will borrow the lamp of the athenian sage and will follow you around all the countries in the world show me if you can , such men in other countries.
