Addressing a large gathering of Gyanarthis (students), trainers, guardians and the general devouts on the occasion of All Bengal Gyanshala Effectiveness Campaign on Sunday,19.10.2008, Acharyashri Mahapragyaji’s learned disciple Sadhvisri Nirvansriji delivered her inspiring message “ In the intellectual era, Gyanshala has its own utility because it teaches the art of controlling emotions. Today there is tremendous improvement in the intellectuality of children. However, without controlling emotions, they will not be able to live a joyful life. Gyanshala imparts both experimental and practical training with equal importance. With the joint efforts of Gyanarthis, teachers, guardians and organizing bodies, we can achieve the desired result. For this, volunteers of organizing bodies are to approach each and every Terapanthi house. The day guardians will understand the necessity of spiritual training apart from swimming, dancing, music and painting, number of Gyanarthis will automatically increase.”

Sadhvi Dr. Yogkshem Prabhaji in her splendor speech said “Gyanshala is the school of perfection. Perfection at childhood makes the life happy and prosperous. Those children, who adopt the perfection since beginning, definitely show something unique in future. Devotion towards mother, Guru and the spiritual organisation (Sangh) is the mirror in which one can have a glimpse of his own bright shadow. Those children who do not have a feeling of respect towards their elders are dwarf even if they climb to the top of success. Guru (spiritual head) is the source of great energy which transmits to the soul of disciples.” She further said “ there is a tremendous increase in the number of Gyanarthis and Trainers with the inspiration of Sadhvisriji. We can see a new wave of awareness in whole Kolkata after organizing such grand events. To make the feel a permanent one, local Sabhas and committees are to make determined efforts.”
