Archbishop Machado Reaches out to Acharya Mahashraman
Bengaluru: Archbishop Peter Machado of Bengaluru takes the most challenging adherents in reaching out to Acharya Mahashraman (who is the eleventh Acharya, supreme head of Jain Śvētāmbara Terapanth sect). Mahashramanji heads all activities functioning under Terapanth, most notably Anuvrat, Preksha Meditation, Jeevan Vigyan (Science of Living).
The prominent personalities who were part of this gathering held recently, (on August 9), were Babulal Powal- State Exe. Committee member of Karnataka BJP, Rev. Edward Thomas SDB- Dream India Network Advisor and Mentor, Dr. Roma S. Francis, Naturopath besides others.
The meeting was considered very interesting and enriching, said Rev. Edward, a Salesian priest who was the force behind in organizing such a meeting. The Archbishop made a very pertinent and relevant appraisal of Acharya Mahashramanji particularly about his complete renunciation, hard work, lifestyle in today’s Techno-centric world. Acharya’s life is amazing and it is a great challenge and inspiration to all who meet him. His value-based life is remarkable and is worth imbibing, observed Dr Machado.
During this meeting, the Archbishop of Bengaluru appreciating Fr. Edward for the good works done through Dream India and foster homes invited Acharya Mahashraman to join hands to build a different world which is “One but Many: One family, many races; One truth, many paths; One heart, many complexions; One light, many reflections; One world, many imperfections. All amalgamated into One. We are all one, but many.” It is possible to work together in unity in diversity for a different society, Archbishop added.
