Varsity Vishwamanava Employees Association holds Basava Jayanti

Spreading Basavanna’s mes­sage of “Work is Worship”, Vishwamanava Employees Association of University of Mysore felicitated achiev­ers from various fields and 460 scholars during Basava Jayanti organised at Maha­raja Centenary Hall here on Thursday.

Inaugurating the event, Revenue and District In-Charge Minister V Srinivas Prasad said that the thoughts of Basavanna were universal and were not limited to a par­ticular community.

“People should not re­strict philosophers to a par­ticular caste. Instead, their messages must be followed by one and all. Their teach­ings are worth emulating by the humanity,” he said.

“Followers of great philos­ophers have to understand the inner meanings without restricting them to particular caste and community. Basa­vanna struggled hard to bring equality in the society. His revolutionary ideas and litera­ture are similar to that of Karl Marx,” the minister said.

“Buddhism is Asia’s light that is spread across the world. The religion adopts a scientific approach and high­lights human values. Sadly, the Buddhism has not devel­oped to its fullest potential in the country where it was born. This is mainly due to lack of understanding,” he felt.

“Dr B R Ambedkar under­stood Buddhism and its val­ues that helped in eradicate caste-based discriminations and he went on promoting the religion. After Emperor Ashoka, it was Ambedkar who popularised the reli­gion,” he said.
