Brahma Kumaris is the only organization that is working to development all sections of the society – Policy Makers and Ministers, CEOs of big and small companies, Judiciary etc. I am requesting Dadi Ji, to make this retreat centre at Amaravati as their best centre in the world. It is not a building to be created but an environment that spreads wisdom to the entire world. We are witnessing a large emergence of schools, hospitals etc. but the most important thing that we need now is spirituality. I feel proud to have the campus of Brahma Kumaris here as Brahma Kumaris are leaders in spirituality. We have police for law and order, but when I see Brahma Kumaris, I see a White Police creating peace and happiness in the society. Police is not needed wherever they are. I request all of you to imbibe the teachings of Brahma Kumaris to make your lives happy and meaningful. I thank Dadi Ji for gracing this programme said the Honourable CM.
