‘Manasa Sarovar’, the Swarnima art gallery that was thrown open to the public on Sunday at the Prajapita Brahma Kumaris Ishwariya Vishwa Vidyalaya campus in Tirupati, focused on the path to self-transformation.

Theme

Inaugurated by Rajyogini Dadi Ratanmohiniji, the joint chief of Brahma Kumaris movement, the gallery is touted to be a model for the publicity of the divine virtues to be inculcated with self-realisation and God-realisation. The building is located at Alipiri, the foot of Tirumala hills, and is expected to be visited by pilgrims in large numbers.

8,500 branches

The movement, headquartered at Mount Abu (Rajasthan) with 8,500 branches in India and 137 around the globe, offers spiritual value-based education. The gallery is a way of inculcating moral values to the people who are faced with falling ethics and high pressure in the contemporary world.

There are around 200 working models at the gallery to throw light on the concept of Brahma Kumaris’ movement.

Exhibits

“The exhibits explain the theory of heaven as a destination of happiness, prosperity and as an illustration of brotherhood, as propounded by our school of thought”, said the local in-charge B.K. Leela Behen. Rajyogini Padma Bhenji, sub-zonal in-charge (Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka) was present.

TTD Executive Officer M.G. Gopal, legislator Bhumana Karunakar Reddy and SVIMS Director B.Vengamma and former MLA of Jukkal (Nizamabad) B.K.S. Gangaram took part in the inaugural.
