A PETITION FROM THAVATHIRU SWAMY ONGARANANDHA,
MAHADHIPATHY, ONGARA ASHRAM, PONDICHERRY
Paritranaya Sadhunam Vinasaya Ca Duskrtam Dharma-Samsthapanarthaya Sambhavami Yuge Yuge - (Chapter 4 text 8 Bhagavad Gita)
In India - Every city, village, town has a divine history. Mahatmas, Seers, Saints, Sadhus, Sadgurus, Spiritual Scholars, Poets were born in this land, lived in the land, worked for Universal harmony, divinity, peace, love for all mankind, love for every animal, plant and all beings and shared immense compassion guiding every person towards self-less service, mutual respect and freedom to practice any faith and all leading to the same goal of Universal love, peace and Cosmic Truth.
This Divine land is filled with the power of compassion from Sufi Saints, Mystics, Avatars, Poets, Philosophers, Vedantins, Yogis, Siddhas, Gurus, and Lamas. Every city and village in our country has an importance for pilgrimage which is time immemorial. There is a temple, a gurudwara, a Sufi Saint Dargah, a Jain temple or a Buddhist Monastery, which is associated with a village, city and town. Every step of the way has a history of great and divine people who have walked this land. We conduct Kumbh Mela which is largest congregation of Divine souls on earth. Numerous travellers, Spiritual aspirants, Truth Seekers have traveled, are travelling and will be travelling to India to seek solace, to achieve Nirvana, to attain self-realization, to know one’s self. This land has transformed people spiritually and has answers to numerous unanswered questions that people have and given a new ray of hope.
We start from the Majestic peaks of Himalayas filled with mystical and Spiritual winds with Badrinath, Kedarnath, Rishikesh, Hardiwar, Numerous Tibetan and Buddhist monasteries. Bodhgaya is the most revered place for every Buddhist and a place that a Buddhist should visit once in a life time. Kashi (Varanasi), the Aagnya or Sixth Chakra, is the divine power and considered as the heart of all divine places for Hindus. India from north to south and east to west is covered with the Panchabhuta Kshetras, 12 Jyotir Lingas, 24 Jain Tirthankara, 108 Divya Desams for Vaishanavites, and 51 Sakthi Peethas. There are towns and villages who are meant to be only temple towns, such as Varanasi, Mayiladuthurai, Kumbakonam, Chidambaram, Madurai, Tiruvannamalai and Rameswaram, where people flock for pilgrimages and worship. We have the holy shrines/Dargahs of Sufi Saints starting with HazratBal shrine in Srinagar, Dargah Ajmer Sheriff, Nagore Dargah to just mention very few of the big list of Shrines around the country. There are festivals, celebrations, prayers, offerings and pilgrimages through the year. Every minute, every hour, every day is auspicious and divine - dedicated to Divinity and thinking of the Divinity. Every community in around such holy places share the vibration of universal peace, brotherhood, poor feeding and mutual reverence to every faith. Every place of worship focuses on feeding poor and reverberates with a sense of cosmic peace and harmony. Every person around this holy place live a very humble life and follow a routine which streamlines their life and thoughts.
One such survey mentions, there are about 4 million places of worship In India. Every inch of earth in India is considered worshipful. The first Divine presence, several crores of years ago, occurred in India and continues till this day. This is borne by history. In fact, in the book, Realization and its Methods, Swami Vivekananda says, “Religion is the realization of God”.
The Idea is to highlight the sheer number of holy places that abound in this divine land. Wherever you see, there are prayers, festivals, gatherings, and holy recitals happening round the clock in this Divine land. India is a seat and Birthplace of major religions in the world. Hence I look forward to your support here that We should declare this country as a divine land as a true testament for its spiritual diversity, vast divine history that is time immemorial and has been the fulcrum of World peace, harmony and Cosmic kinship from ages and continues to be the Divine lighthouse of this world and for every person who is looking for a sense of purposeful direction in his/her life.
Every person, in their spiritual pursuit, opens their own divine door that is the lalada or third eye). The highest technology for this is available only in India.
This change will create a new perspective towards this divine land and will make this divine land not just a country but a place that is revered, respected and loved by every human being in this world who is spiritually connected to this divine land will continue to be connected for ages to come.
Ongara Ashram has been spreading this message of universal and cosmic love, compassion to all beings, universal peace for last 66 years under the leadership of His Holiness Mayiladuthurai Parabrahma Paramguru Siddhar Swamigal and his chief disciple, His Holiness Parabrahma Sadguru Swami Ongaranandha. Swamiji has written multiple books, journals, articles regarding this immense greatness of this divine land and has emphasized time to time the very importance of declaring India as a Divine nation and a divine land. Ongara ashram has conducted World peace conferences in Pondicherry in 1981 and has been conducting Mass Meditation programs for past 50 years in Pondicherry - explaining that Open space Meditation transcends all religions, rituals and practices as the Meditation is on the open space itself.
In 1984, Ongara Ashram, whilst successfully organizing a Mass Rally against Nuclear Weapons, passed a resolution requesting United Nations to declare a World Peace Year. Subsequently, the year 1986 was observed as World Peace Year by United Nations all over the world. The United Nations sent a letter of appreciation commending the efforts of Ongara Ashramam in this regard.
On Behalf of the whole world, we are requesting Honorable United Nations to declare universally that India is a Divine country and a Holy Land considering its vast spiritual history, philosophy, tattvas, culture and tradition even as India continues to be the lodestar to the entire world in Spirituality, Philosophy and divinity.
