Pune, November 21, 2020: Sadhu Vaswani Mission will usher in the 141st birth anniversary of its founder Sadhu T.L. Vaswani amidst virtual satsangs, kirtans and bhajans, sevas, and telecasts of recorded talks by the Great Masters — Rev. Dada J.P. Vaswani and Gurudev Sadhu Vaswani.

An added feature this year includes live talks by Didi Krishna Kumari, Working Chairperson of the Mission. Global centres will also be organizing virtual satsangs.

Sadhu Vaswani Mission Pune, in conformation with the prevailing norms, will not hold any gatherings. However, the Mission has left no stone unturned to reach out globally and make use of the virtual platform to spread the message of ‘International Meatless Day’, observed, since 1986, on Sadhu Vaswani’s birthday.

To add an element of fun, ‘From CEO to CEO – From Chief Executive Officer to Chief Entertainment Officer’ with renowned comedian Atul Khatri and ‘Master Class with Vicky Ratnani’ celebrated Indian Chef, have been organized.

Echoing this vision, all centres are actively engaged in spreading the message of Meatless Day and appeal to all to kindly observe November 25th, Sadhu Vaswani’s birthday, as a Meatless Day and abstain from all forms of flesh food and intoxicants.

Sadhu Vaswani belonged to a time when patriotism manifested itself as a struggle for freedom from the colonial yoke. He was a freedom fighter and worked as a close associate of Mahatma Gandhi in the Satyagraha Movement. A patriot of the purest ray serene, he inspired the youth of the country to offer themselves in dedicated service of the Motherland.

Later, however, Sadhu Vaswani withdrew from the field of active politics and turned his attention to education, and other spheres, emphasizing that character building is nation-building. With this in view, he started the “Mira Movement in Education” which has, today, its headquarters at Pune and educational institutions spread across the world.

Sadhu Vaswani was a prolific writer-the author of several hundreds of books in English and Sindhi. He was a born orator. Seeing the beauty of the One in the many, Sadhu Vaswani felt drawn towards all religions as he saw them as different paths to the One God.

Implanted deep in Sadhu Vaswani’s heart was reverence for all life. Every little thing he did was inspired by the Vision Cosmic. His heart bled at the cruelties inflicted upon animals day after day, for food. “Take my head,” he pleaded,” but pray stop all slaughter’ This deep awareness of the need for reverence for all life, in whichever form it is manifest, formed a very essential part of Sadhu Vaswani’s teachings and has been propagated by the International Meatless Day Campaign.

For the last several years, hundreds of thousands of devotees have been observing November 25th, Sadhu Vaswani’s birthday as Meatless Day and Animal Rights Day expressing their shared commitment to the ideal of reverence for all life.
