The Sanskriti Kumbh was held in Mumbai on Wednesday September 5, where big names from the business world, cultural sphere, film and television world along with political leaders were in attendance.

Shri Subhash Chandra welcomed the guests with his address. RSS General Secretary Shri Bhaiyyaji Joshi, UP CM Yogi Adityanath, Maharashtra CM Shri Devendra Fadnavis, along with film-maker Shri Subhash Ghai  inaugurated the event.

In his address, Subhash Ji said, “Today’s event has been held at this auditorium of ISKCON because the thought behind it is to discuss the significance of the Kumbh. Kumbh’s objective too is betterment of the whole universe, as we heard in the mantrochar recited here before.”

He further added, “It is with the this very thought that Rishi Munis began the tradition of Kumbh and it has been going on for thousands of years. UNESCO too has given it the status of Cultural Heritage yet often we get to see that the image that gets propagated abroad is that of Naga Sadhus and depiction of poverty.”

Speaking further about the idea behind the ideological Kumbh he said,“Today selected personalities of Mumbai are present here. After today’s event where we will discuss the significance of the Kumbh, I hope that you come along with your family and bring at least five more families with you to the Mahakumbh in Prayag that will be held next year.”

“Because Kumbh is not just a confluence of Sadhus and Sages but also for us,” he added. “We will also get blessings for it. But how? What do we get by conducting Pooja or Prayers there? Nothing. By doing so, our anger and arrogance get expelled from within. It is not important what you get but what you lose by going there. Do think about this philosophy.”

Talking further about the Kumbh that will held in Prayag early next year, he said that, “This time Sanskar Bharti has taken a prominent role so, there will be grand event where one will witness the different cultural aspects of Bharat. Multiple cultural activities will keep happening throughout the duration of the Kumbh.”

Subhash Ji also added that there will be all facilities there, and hailed the effort put in by the Uttar Pradesh Government.  “Looking at the dedication with which Yogi Ji’s government is doing everything, I am confident that not only with people from India come for the Kumbh, but also from across the World,” he added extending the warm invitation and concluding his address.
