It was an immense honour welcoming Hon. Member of Parliament Shri Gopal Shetty ji on World Environment Day (June 5th) at Shantidham Hall, Borivali West .
At the outset, Sister Bindu, Centre-in-charge of BK Borivali (West) Centre, mentioned how the environment and Mother Earth have served us selflessly for thousands of years. Since industrialization began over 150 years ago, man has significantly damaged the Mother Earth and the environment by polluting air, water ground resources. Now it is the duty of us, children of the Earth, to look after the Mother (Earth). We need to change our habits and contribute towards better environment in all possible ways.
She suggested to practice 5 R’s in our day-to-day life to improve the environment, namely Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rethink and Refuse. In particular, she mentioned that practising meditation radiates powerful vibrations of purity & peace to the nature all around, helping replenish & heal it.
After being felicitated & honored by the BK sisters for winning the recent Lok Sabha elections from Mumbai North Constituency with a thumping majority, Shri Gopal Shetty ji expressed how essential it is to take care of outer as well as inner environment. He further added that the society should shoulder the responsibility with the government to establish a peaceful and better world.
