“Feel the Soul!” (Known as Bharathiya Athma ) Campaign and the ‘Sanaathan Samskrithika Yuva Sammelan’(Youth Festival) is a seven-day event (the first time in India of its kind) on
October / November 2023, supporting our central Govt Ayush dept’s campaign
“Har din Har Ghar Ayurveda”.
India’s literary treasure house, the Srimad Bhagavatam, states that the soul journeys through 84 lakh species to finally take birth as a human being. Human life is so rare, as it is the only means to achieve perfect knowledge and attain the ultimate destination of self-realization. Nowadays, however, we can personally witness that not a single soul is experiencing real happiness and no one is delighted with their life. Such unwholesome dissatisfaction is caused by our current ways of life which are not centred on our true purpose.
The Bhagavata philosophy is not merely lofty but quite pragmatic and benevolent. It affirms that human life’s true purpose is to revive our relationship with the Supreme Personality of the Godhead and thereby achieve peace, happiness, and bliss. This is easily achieved by following Sanatana Dharma, through which we maintain the mode of goodness (sattva guna) by practising sattvic aahara, vihara, and sad-vruttha. Five major components of this pursuit are Sanatana Dharma, our indigenous cow and her family, our motherland, ancient / Vedic ways of farming, and natural methods of maintaining our health. And, such knowledge is sorely missing in our modern civilisation!
We, the “Ohe Vaishnava Thakura” (OVT) Foundation have been serving society by disseminating such knowledge for over 23 years by conducting motivational programs for students, informational events on natural eco-living and sustainability, medical camps for several thousands of citizens, and practical training for farmers in the concept of (Jeeva karunya) Compassionate Farming, which emphasises kindness towards all the living beings involved in the process of agriculture.
Joining hands with other like-minded groups, The Ohe Vaishnava Thakura (OVT) Foundation will host an event in the form of an entire demonstrational science exhibition at NTR stadium / Parade grounds/ L.B stadium Hyderabad on October/November 2023, to celebrate our Sanatana culture through widely propagating its foundational precepts in practical ways.
Total no of stalls is 300 Each is maintained by 20 volunteers (students) accompanied by a mentor and a subject expert. We expect about 3-4 lakh visitors for this event spread across this seven-day event whose MOTTO is to educate farmers, students, youth, and women. We are also inaugurating the “FEEL THE SOUL”(KNOW THE BHARATHIYA ATHMA) campaign to propagate and protect the traditionally benevolent ways of life of India.
We request your collaboration and support to make this YOUTH FESTIVAL a Grand success by granting the esteemed involvement of your staff and students.
Pursuing agriculture, an integral part of our heritage, and farming in the Vedic ways as our revered ancestors did in ancient India, with the sacred cow and
her family as the central, sentient being of this kind of compassionate farming (Jeeva karunya) needs to be rekindled. Such natural farming in which our indigenous cow and her family’s urine, dung, and saliva are used as the only fertilizers to strengthen the soil and replenish its nutrients, is vital for healthy agriculture. This kind of benevolent farming helps give back to the soil as much as we take from it.
