in the presence of Pramukh Swami Maharaj.
Modi praised the BAPS socio-spiritual activities inspired by Pramukh
Swami Maharaj in his address. He added, “Today, a hospital
has been declared open for the people of Surat. The difference
between this hospital and that of others is that it is not only
fully equipped with latest instruments and technology but it is
blessed with spirituality and the divine grace of Pramukh Swami
Maharaj. Pramukh Swami Maharaj serves the whole of society and
his works have become a standard and benchmark for all to emulate;
be it festivals, educational complexes or hospitals. If any one
builds a hospital in Surat then it has to be like or better than
BAPS Pramukh Swami Hospital. I also want to tell you that our
society is facing a grave problem. For every 1000 baby boys born
we have 850 female births. This imbalance is not God inspired.
I appeal to you all to join in the campaign against female feticide.”
Thereafter the Chief Minister inaugurated a new publication “Yug
Purush, Pujya Pramukh Swami Maharaj” authored by Kirit N.
Shelat (IAS), Secretary for Dept of Agriculture.
MP Shri Kashiram
Rana hailed the inauguration of the hospital and said, “Pramukh
Swami Maharaj’s services extend from cities to tribal areas.
The ultramodern BAPS Hospital here seems as if it is a hospital
from London, Paris and New York. I have seen it and when you will
step into it you will experience your pain and misery fade. There
is a fusion of state-of-the-art treatment and spirituality.”
Finally the assembly
was crowned with the blessings of Pramukh Swami Maharaj, “We
all experience diseases of body and mind. The hospital will cure
our body and the mandir cures the problems and diseases of mind.
The diseases of mind are due to lack of self control and moral
indiscipline. The more one listens and sees immoral things the
more distraught one’s mind becomes. We pray to God that
all be blessed with good health, prosperity and spiritual happiness.”
The inaugural assembly
of 15,000 dignitaries, doctors, industrialists, educationists
and devotees concluded with a vote of thanks.
