Kurukshetra, November 27

Manoj Sinha, Union Minister of State for Communications, released a postage stamp on the Mahabharata here today. The stamp was released at ‘sant sammelan’ being organised as a part of the International Gita Mahotsav where several religious and spiritual leaders were present.

Sinha said the stamp was planned to be released from Kurukshetra to commemorate the Gita Mahotsav.

“The Bhagavad Gita is an exceptional holy book in the world whose anniversary is celebrated. The ancient text is a symbol of inspiration and spiritual awakening,” he said. Agreeing to a demand raised by Swami Gyananand, Sinha announced to release a postage stamp on Bhagavad Gita next year.

Gyananand said Kurukshetra should be promoted as a land of humanism as stated in the Gita and not mere a place of a massive bloody war. Satpal Singh Khalsa, chairman of Guru Ram Das Sikh Mission of America, said the Gita was revered by all faiths to promote spiritual strength and universal peace.
