Punjab CM extends greetings on 151st birth anniversary of Jainacharya Shree Vijay Vallabh Surishwer ji

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Monday extended greetings to the people on the 151st birth anniversary of Jainacharya Shree Vijay Vallabh Surishwer ji.

In his message, the Chief Minister described Jainacharya Shree Vijay Vallabh Surishwer ji as ‘one of the most erudite Saints of recent times (1870-1954 AD)’ and exhorted the people to emulate the example of the Jain saint who selflessly worked to spread Lord Mahavira’s message of non-violence and universal peace.

Recalling Jainacharya Surishwer ji’s immense contribution to spreading education in every nook and corner of the country, the Chief Minister said Punjab had been a major beneficiary of his social endeavours. A Gurukul established in Gujranwala 100 years ago, and a host of colleges and schools in Ludhiana, Hoshiarpur, Malerkotla, Zira, Jandiala Guru, Nakodar, Sunam and Fazilka, were a living testimony to the Saint’s far-sighted vision in the field of education, he added.

Describing the Saint as a great social reformer, the Chief Minister said that the real tribute to Jainacharya Shree Vijay Vallabh Surishwer ji on the culmination of his year-long Saardh Janma Shatabdi (150th Birth Anniversary) would be to imbibe his teachings of peace, harmony, compassion and brotherhood.
