Acharya Mahapragya Honoured With ‘ IOJ Ahimsa Award’
Jaipur, Oct 17, 2008

Acharya Mahapragya the founder of Ahimsa Yatra and the sponsor of Anuvrat Movement was honoured with “IOJ Ahimsa Award -2008” in recognition of his significant contribution to the cause of nonviolence. The award was presented to Acharya Mahapragya’s representative in London Samani Prasanna Pragya by Lord Puttama of Queensgate, President of UNICEF, U.K. at a special function -- ‘Ahimsa Day’ held on 15th October in House of Commons, London.

In the beginning Samanis Prasanna Pragya and Rohit Pragya recited the sacred text Navakar Mantra and some agamic verses relating to ahimsa in Prakrit and English.

Mr. Nemu Chanderia the Chairman of the Institute made an introductory speech and Mr. Jaisukh Mehta threw light on Acharya Mahapragya’s presonality and message. Present on this occasion were Mr. Shailesh Vora, MP-Chairman Conservative Friends of India, Mr Barry Gardiner MP- Chairman, Lobour Friends of India and Mr. Veerendra Shah of Libral Democratic Friends of India.

Mr. Manak Chordia read a special message sent by Acharya Mahapragya on this occasion. Defining the principles of nonviolence as propounded by Lord Mahavira Acharya Mahapragya said that too much emphasis had been laid on ahimsa as a result non-possession has been relegated. As a matter of fact both ahimsa and non-possession should go together. The main cause of the problem today is man’s tendency to possess material objects. There will be no peace if man’s attitude towards worldly possessions does not change and a desire to earn is not limited.
