Kurukshetra, April14- ‘To change the mindset and uplift consciousness among Indians, Antarjyoti celebrated birth anniversary of Babasaheb Ambedkar as SATYAKAMA DIVAS (Day to Seek the Truth) and paid tributes to him here today . About a thousand years before the time of Mahabharata, Rishi Gautama addressed a child by the name Satyakama — one who seeks the truth— because of the Truth the child spoke. He was a son of an abused slave dalit woman who did not know who fathered him. By accepting him, Rishi Gautama proclaimed to the world that such a childlike pure heart could only be that of a Brahmin. Satyakama grew up with him as a Brahmin student and is remembered forever for his scintillating contribution to Chhandogya Upanishad’, told President Antarjyoti Professor M.M. Goel.
By dint of intelligence and strong mind, Ambedkar fought the adverse circumstances and shined as an expert in jurisprudence. Reminding us of Swami Vivekananda’s declaration from Rik Veda (10/13/1) addressing all humans as “amritasya putra” “Children of Immortal Bliss”, Mahatma Gandhi embraced the dalits as “harijan” “Children of God” and started a vigorous struggle for their rights. By giving pure love to harijan, the Mahatma showed the power of human mind, and proclaimed that Consciousness was the Crown of Life, and Love was the Crown of Consciousness. Thousands of people in India followed the Mahatma and embraced harijan as their own. Thanks to the self-cleansing capacity of Hinduism, when India achieved freedom on August 15, 1947, Babasaheb was invited to shape a new India by writing the Constitution, told President Antarjyoti.
Universal, Causeless Love will make us see every human being as a spark of Divinity — irrespective of caste and creed, believes Antarjyoti. Shri Prem Dutt, Aruna, Mayank and Sangeeta Singh were present on the occasion.
