Highlights of the day..

Mountains of Change

We need to develop three or four mountains, as an example, then we can change the whole state. It will be an ecosystem, a combination of water, plants, and other life forms. We can also have cottages in these mountains where, irrespective of their religion, people can go and offer their prayers. You can do your namaz there, or you can worship the Lord Christ. Or, if you want, you can do Yoga and meditation. There won’t be any idols or statues. It will be a neutral place where you can be with nature. A place where people from various communities can come together and work together.

We have to bring in various communities to achieve this project, then it will become an example. It will mark the beginning of working together, where instead of just talking, people will eat, sleep, and work together. Hopefully, that will bring harmony and set a trend.
 

Daaji started from his house at 7.25 a.m. to conduct meditation for the gathering of 1,050 seekers in the meditation hall.

After the session, as he was about to leave, he met Pardha Saradhi Maddipati, head of the ESG team of Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages Pvt. Ltd., Hyderabad, and his wife. Daaji invited the couple for breakfast. 

Afterward, they had a discussion on the various plantation activities and techniques being carried out in Kanha. At around 9.45 a.m., Daaji took the couple on a tour of the Kanha campus and showed them the Deep Root Irrigation (DRI) technique that is being used here. From there, they proceeded to the Madhuvanam pond and the surrounding plantation area. Daaji gifted the couple a sapling of the allspice (Pimento dioica) plant. 
 

The group then gathered in the office behind the meditation hall, where Rukmini gave a demo of Brighter Minds for the benefit of the guests. Then Daaji shared his vision for creating green mountains covered by lakes and forests.

After giving his guests a warm send-off, Daaji visited the pond at Saireddyguda village. He sat there for a while, enjoying the silent atmosphere. 
 

Later in the evening, Daaji spent time with family members and seekers from France at his residence. He conducted a short meditation session for the group between 6.20 and 6.40 p.m.
