The annual blood donation programme of Sadguru Sadafaldeo Vihangam Yoga Sansthan, Allahabad was observed by the organization’s Arunachal Pradesh wing on the birth anniversary of Sant Pravar Vigyandeo Ji Maharaj like every year at Kholi Mela Ground Sector A, Naharlagun.
A total of 100 units of Blood were collected, including Sant Pravar Ji himself, who was present here along with Sadguru Swatantradeo Ji Maharaj for a major Spiritual Congregation and 251-Kund Vedic Hawan program scheduled on 28th and 29th October.
Apart from this camp, nearly 200 more camps were held across 35 nations, collecting more than 5000 units. In the evening’s spiritual discourse of Swarved Divya Vani, more than 2000 seekers also gathered.
In his divine speech, Sant Pravar Shri Vigyandeo Ji Maharaj called blood donation a service to God. He said that Arunachal Pradesh is the land of rising Sun, and inspires us to remain attached to Light in our lives. He also praised the thousands of donors of Vihangam Yoga, who’ve been active through several years, presenting a great deal of humanity. He insisted that India’s culture is all about human values, i.e. the virtues of benevolence, sacrifice and service to mankind. He also congratulated and thanked all the people who participated in today’s camp.
Like the usual convention, the first blood unit was donated by Sant Pravar himself, followed by more than 100 volunteers joining from various distant places of India, esp. the North East. The team of Red Cross society appreciated the enthusiasm of all volunteers. All the participants were given certificates to ensure blood supply in the occasion of need anywhere in India.
The chief guest of this program Mr Techi Kaso, Parliamentary Secretary (PWD, UD, ULB), Arunachal Govt appreciated the social events being undertaken by the organization and said that donating a unit of blood doesn’t harm us. The fluids are recovered in 24 hrs, and the iron contents in 15 days with regular food. The President of Vihangam Yoga North East wing, Madan Mohan Singh from Tezpur said that a healthy adult can, and must donate once in every 3 months and save someone’s life. Chandrakant Jaisawal of Guwahati, international Sant Kishanlal Sharma, Arunachal Pradesh Sansthan President Er. Tanga Kena and many other people contributed to the success of this program.
