Mount Abu: The Convention of Political Leaders on the topic “Spiritual Empowerment for Raising Happiness Index” along with the Silver Jubilee Celebration of Politicians Service Wing began after lighting the lamps at the Harmony Hall of Gyan Sarovar here today. The Delegates of all Political Parties from various states of India and Nepal assembled in large numbers.
While addressing the Convention, Rajyogi BK Nirwair, Secretary General of Brahma Kumaris Organisation, extended his best wishes and said, “The whole responsibility of the society is on your shoulders.” He said, “Today almost everyone in society has ample resources but happiness – real happiness is lacking in life. Everyone of us has the seed of happiness present within by birth. Happiness is in built in our original soul stage. When we get away from Soul consciousness, the happiness disappears. This is the only mistake we committed to identify Self as a Body. If we remain in Soul conscious state all our divine values and unlimited happiness returns in our lives.
Rajyogi BK Brij Mohan, Chairperson of Political Service Wing, clarified the object of this meet and said that to gain happiness, hard labor is not required but only pure Love. All the work become very easier with love. He said that the way to acquire happiness is very easy but once it is lost it is very difficult to get it back. Happiness is not to be found on searching anywhere outside but our form itself is happiness and bliss being personified. Wealth too comes from happiness. All the values come under the category of wealth that comes in life due to happiness. There are two types of happiness, short term and long term. Material life gives short term happiness and long term happiness comes from Spiritual life. Where does this long lasting happiness exists and where is that place? That place is our own self called Soul, happiness and bliss are in the Soul. Atma or Soul means bliss personified. He said, “You have to feel that experience here. This blissful experience is the only means to raise the happiness index high”.
Arjun Gujarthi, Ex-Speaker, Maharashtra State and NCP Leader stated that a contented man is ever happy. He said, “l traveled all over the world but nowhere found a shop selling happiness. That shop is here in Brahma Kumaris Organisation. Making others happy enhances our happiness. It is a great thing. Politicians can do this because, they are for people and elected by the people”. He further stated, “It is being said that limited facilities give happiness which gets lost with increase of desires because you cannot accumulate all and then mind gets filled with sorrow. So experience the Soul Consciousness for happiness and peace.” He said that this Spirituality will only make you happy. “Nothing is Mine, everything is Your’s” is the only way for happiness.
Hitendra Nath Goswami, Speaker of Legislative Assembly, Assam said in the welcoming session that politicians and politics are not viewed with right outlook. No parents want their children to enter into politics. He said, “Whenever l found youth in assembly, l used to ask seniors to behave well so the youth may learn from them good ethics”. He said that youth must come in politics for which he had been motivating them. He said, “When good persons come in politics then only its face will change in society. Value based politics can do good to people for which we must adopt in life Spirituality. It is our country’s life. Without Spiritual inner power politicians cannot do any good to the nation.
Bal Bahadur Maharshi, ex Minister, Government of Nepal, extended his best wishes and expressed his thanks to organisers. He said, “Today materialism has gone deep rooted and that is the cause for all our sufferings. Brahma Kumaris are doing a great job to re-establish ethics and spirituality in society. It is praise worthy”. He said that this is the only bond of brotherhood between lndia and Nepal that will further remain so forever.
Abha Mahato, former Minister and MP of Jharkhand wished the program with all success. She questioned, “How can be happiness a nectar of life?” she said, “lt is a pity that for happiness seminars have become necessary in the world”. She said that our politicians can be happy in their life when they work for the people and the society. Today we have become selfish so we lost happiness. Living for others brings happiness.

She said , “God is with you”.

अरुण गुजरती ,पूर्व स्पीकर और काबीना मंत्री, महाराष्ट्र शासन ने आज के अवसर पर अपने उदगार रखे। आपने कहा कि संतोषी नर सदा सुखी। मैं पूरी दुनिया में घूमा मगर ख़ुशी बेचने वाली दूकान कहीं नहीं मिली। ख़ुशी बेचने वाली दूकान यहां , ब्रह्माकुमारीज़ में है। दूसरे की ख़ुशी की वृद्धि करने से अपनी ख़ुशी बढ़ती है। यह एक बड़ी बात है। राजनीतिज्ञ ऐसा कर सकते हैं। क्योंकि वे लोगो के लिए और लोगों के द्वारा निर्मित इंसान है।
