During His inspiring address Pujya Swamiji said, “India is not just a piece of land it’s a land of peace. India is the land of the super computer and of a super culture. A culture that is built on the core tenet that the world is one family, that life is not about having more but really about being more, giving more and sharing more. As leaders of tomorrow we need to bridge the gap between culture and computer, between tradition and technology. We can check our Facebook but must face our own book at the end of the day. We must ask ourselves where do we stand whether we are becoming bitter or better, whether we are living in peace or pieces.” Watch His entire speech here.
