Dr. M R Doreswamy speaking on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanthi at S-VYASA University said that the entire world is paying tribute on this day to the most celebrated son of India.
On this day one needs to introspect why only Gandhi is a Mahatma while there are many individuals rendering yeomen services to the country in many wonderful professions such as lawyers, doctors, teachers, engineers etc, His legacies of Truth and Non-violence have left a lasting imprint on the collective consciousness of human civilization.
He is a Mahatma because he got independence for the country using these twin ‘weapons’, not waging a war or with bloodshed. He was aware that violence begets violence and adopted a unique method of protest against foreign rule which was the essence of our great Indian culture. Use of peaceful non-cooperation (satyagraha), he stabilized the Independence movement for years and ultimately got independence to India.
His life was a message - a message of peace over power, of finding ways to reconcile our differences, and of living in harmony with respect and love even for our enemies. Gandhiji can be considered the most modern political thinker India has ever had. He shines like a luminous star in the galaxy of intellectuals, reformers and leaders.
Gandhi transformed the Indian National Congress party from “Class party to Mass party” i.e. inclusion of all sections of society in the party he added. He recalled that “Gandhiji was telling that means is as important as end”, He also said that Gandhi's leadership role was extremely complex. Knowing that violence only begets violence, he began practicing passive resistance, Satyagraha. His achievements were nothing less than miracles.
Mahatma Gandhi was an icon of simplicity in life style – dress, food and choosing a dress of the poorest Indian, which he even wore when he went to England for the Round Table Conference in 1931 on the invitation of Winston Churchill the then Prime Minister of UK. There many social experiments he conducted as part of the independence movement; two noteworthy are the Swadeshi Movement to encourage boycott of British goods march from Dandi and the famous salt. However today, it is sad that the country is steeped in corruption, countless scams, criminal charges, self-centric and selfishness of people representatives. There is an urgent need to rediscover Gandhian principles.
Prof. Doreswamy called upon all Universities to celebrate Jayantis in a meaningful way like what S-VYASA is doing today on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti and join hands with the Government’s initiative of adopting Government Schools in the State. He called upon “S-VYASA” to sign MoU with the State Government for introducing YOGA in all government schools.

He agreed to extend full support from S-VYASA University to Government initiatives. He recalled how YOGA being introduced to WORLD from “Then Narendra (i.e. Swami Vivekananda) to Now Narendra (i.e. our Hon’ble Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi ji) and conceptualization of “International Yoga Day”.
Dr. B R Ramakrishna Vice-Chancellor, SVYASA University in his brief introduction of the Chief Guest Dr M R Doreswamy said that “Dr M R Doreswamy is real yogi who has contributed immensely towards Aatmanirbhar Bharat through his untiring service in the education sector. The virtues of Dama i.e Self Restraint, Dana i.e. Charity or giving and Daya i.e. Compassion are being practiced by Dr. MRD from the past five decades and in this sense he is a true yogi he added.
