Text of PMs Speech at Ramanujacharya Stamp Release Event


I am very happy to release a stamp on the occasion of the one thousandth birth anniversary of the great social reformer and Saint Shri Ramanujacharya. I am privileged to have been given this opportunity.

The central message of Saint Shri Ramanujacharyas life was inclusive society, religion and philosophy. Saint Shri Ramanujacharya believed that whatever is, and whatever will be, is but an expression of God. He saw the manifestation of God in Human beings, and Human beings in God. He saw all devotees of God as equal.

When caste distinction and hierarchy had been recognized as integral to society and religion and every one had accepted her place as high and low in the hierarchy, Saint Shri Ramanujacharya rebelled against it - In his personal life and religious teachings.

This is precisely why Swami Vivekananda spoke of the heart of Saint Shri Ramanujacharya the large heart that cried for the downtrodden at a time when being downtrodden was recognized and accepted as part of ones karma. Saint Shri Ramanujacharya broke the settled prejudice of his times. His thinking was much ahead of his era.

In more than one sense, Saint Shri Ramanujacharya was a millennial sage who foresaw a thousand years before, the hidden and un-spelt-out aspirations of the downtrodden. He realized the need to include the socially excluded, outcaste and the divyangs to make not only religion, but society itself, wholesome and complete.

You all are aware that Saint Shri Ramanujacharya had also linked fulfilling the needs of the poor with social responsibility. For instance, he got an artificial lake made, spread over 200 acres in Thondanur near Melkot. This lake continues to exist as a living example of Saint Shri Ramanujacharyas work for the welfare of the people. Even today it serves over 70 villages, fulfilling their drinking water and irrigation needs.

I would also like to make an appeal to the leaders of the various institutions gathered here. As India enters its 75th year of Independence in 2022, we are working on the weaknesses and constraints that hold us back. You too, must set yourself specific targets which are tangible and measurable.
