Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that digitisation of various treatises and ancient epics can deepen their connect with the younger generation, which will be a great service for the coming generations.
In his message to the 2nd World Hindu Congress, Mr Modi called for using technology to connect more people with the philosophy of Hinduism. He said, various aspects of Hindu philosophy can help find the solution to several problems that plague the world today.
The Prime Minister's message was read by eminent Indian-American Bharat Barai at the World Hindu Congress which began at Chicago in the United States last night. The inaugural session of the conference was attended by 2,500 delegates from more than 60 countries.
Mr Modi hoped that the meeting will deliberate upon how better India can engage with the world, based on its ancient treasure trove of knowledge, intellectually and culturally, to help build a future of understanding, acceptance, sharing and caring for our future generations to live and thrive.
Prime Minister said, the manner in which this Conference has brought together thinkers, scholars, intellectuals, eminent thinkers and other participants is commendable.
Mr Modi said that he is glad that the conference is being held in Chicago, which reminds every Indian of one proud moment when Swami Vivekananda addressed the 'Parliament of the World's Religions' in 1893, in the same month of September 125 years ago.
Prime Minister said, the Indian community across the world is catalyst of the resurgence that Swami Vivekananda spoke of contributing to a better future for the whole world.
