Action-oriented spiritualism needed: Governor
By Our Staff Reporter
BANGALORE, NOV. 12. Action-oriented spiritualism is the need of the hour,
the Governor, Ms. V.S.Rama Devi, has said.
Speaking at the 183rd birth anniversary celebrations of Baha'u'llah,
prophet founder of the Baha'i faith, organised by the Local Spiritual
Assembly of the Baha'is of Bangalore, here on Sunday, Ms. Rama Devi said
that though the world had made great strides in the field of information
technology, there was no progress in human relations in present times.
She stressed the need for human resource development for the advance of
any country. The authorities concerned should have political will to
implement schemes which could transform society for the better.
Exalting the teachings of Baha'u'llah, she said in today's times when
war-like situations were prevailing in many parts of the world, the
teachings of the prophet about the principles of peace, social justice
and equality were still relevant.
Speaking on the topic, "Moral Education -- a Baha'i Viewpoint", Ms. Zena
Soli Sorabjee, one of members of the continental Board of Counsellors of
the Baha'i faith in Asia, said a new process of moral education needed
to be developed. Change was the order of the day and to keep up with
changing times the younger generation had to make moral choices which
would transform society for the better, she added.
Mr. Ganesh Shenoy, member of the Auxiliary Board of the Baha'is of
Karnataka, was present.
