Positivity and not despair, will bring victory in the war against Corona – Sonal Mansingh
New Delhi, 13 May. On the third day of the series ‘Hum Jitenge – Positivity Unlimited’, Pujya Shankaracharya Vijayendra Saraswati and eminent artist Sonal Mansingh called upon the Bharatiya society to maintain confidence in itself. They said that we should share around us more and positive thoughts as this would definitely help to win in the war against Corona. This five-day lecture series has been organized by the ‘Covid Response Team’ which has representation from all sections of the society.
Pujya Shankaracharya Vijayendra Saraswati said in his address that today we are facing a crisis due to pandemic in the world. A year ago this problem came to Bharat. At that time this crisis was overcome by the hard work of the society, by the cooperation, by the sympathy of all. Now the same crisis has struck again but this time it is much more grave. But we should be able to overcome this crisis also.
“To overcome this crisis we should pray and remember what Sankat Mochak Hanuman ji said In Valmiki Ramayana. Hanuman ji says, there is sorrow, there is crisis, yet whatever is the situation, do not give up keep trying,” added Pujya Shankaracharya.
“No matter what the crisis is, if we work hard with confidence, we will get the results and we will be successful. In the last year’s crisis people speaking different languages and people from different states worked together, and the result was also very favorable.”
He said, “Two kinds of efforts are necessary to overcome the present challenge – One is to pray and practice virtue …and second is to go for medical treatment to heal one self. But at the same time, patience and confidence also have an important place in the present scheme of things.”
“If there is patience and confidence, we can come out of it, no matter what the crisis is. There is a need for personal faith, as well as to create a positive environment at the collective level,” Pujya Shankaracharya added.
Eminent artist and Padmavibhushan Sonal Mansingh while sharing her personal experiences in her address said that she had recently suffered from corona but she overcame it by positive thoughts, patience, self-confidence and prayer that drove away the despair.
She emphasised, “There is a need to create an atmosphere of boundless hope and positivity in the society so that no one is despaired or disappointed.”
“For this, we may take the support of creative pursuits and we should have a feeling of gratitude in the mind. We are all fighting this war and we will definitely get victory in it. But for this we have to make sure that we do not consider ourselves helpless, we must stay away from anger, frustration, disappointment and also share positive thoughts and support others to create an atmosphere of positivity at the collective level in the society.”
This lecture series is being broadcast on more than 100 media platforms from May 11 to May 15 at 4:30 pm daily. On May 14, Didi Maa Sadhvi Rithambara Ji, Vatsalya Dham and Sant Gyan Dev Singh ji, Shri Panchayati Akhara -Nirmal will address the nation.
