Statue of Peace unveiled in Rajasthan by PMO of India
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled the statue of peace practically on the 151st birthday of the Jain monk Acharya Shree Vijay Vallabh Surishwer Ji Maharaj.
The country now has another tallest statue after the Statue of Unity and also the upcoming Lord Rama statue in Ayodhya. The statue of Jain Monk was made from major metals like copper and a mixture of eight other metals. The statue was placed in Vijay Vallabh Sadhana Kendra in Rajasthan.
After the virtual inauguration of the statue, PM Narendra Modi said that Vijay Nityanand Surishwer Ji Maharaj said that the country of Gujarat gave two vallabhs, that is, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel in the political field, and Jain Acharya Shree Vijay Vallabh Surishwer Ji Maharaj in the spiritual field.
PMO of India added that both visionaries had dedicated their lives to the unity and brotherhood of India and he was therefore lucky to inaugurate these two statues.
In the early days of 1870 to 1954, Saint Shree Vijay Vallabh Surishwer Ji Maharaj worked tirelessly to spread the message of Lord Mahavira and he also advocated the welfare of the masses, the abolition of social evils and the spread of education. In addition, the saint also supported freedom and the Swadesi movement.
According to records, over 50 schools, colleges and various other educational institutions were built with his inspiration and are still in operation.
