MOUNT ABU: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) veteran leader L.K. Advani on Sunday said he was born in Karachi but learnt discipline and got the education from Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

“I was born in Karachi but learnt discipline and got the education from Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). I learnt from the RSS that we should never promote wrongdoings. We get to learn about devotion and dedication towards country through RSS,” Advani said here. 

Thousands of dignitaries from all over the country have arrived here to take part in the 80th anniversary celebrations of the Brahma Kumaris, which is expected to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi today.

Prime Minister Modi will inaugurate the four-day event from Delhi by video conferencing.

Deputy Chairperson of the Rajya Sabha P. J. Kurien, Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L. K. Advani, several Central ministers, respective Governors of Assam and Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu are among the prominent people who will attend the Shantivan campus of the Brahma Kumaris, the venue for the 'International Conference-cum-Cultural Festival on God's Wisdom for World Transformation.'

Besides these prominent leaders, media person Rajat Sharma and Bollywood actors Raveena Tandon and Gracy Singh will also attend the conference.

Several other members of the Parliament, state legislators, senior judges, industrialists and celebrities will also attend the celebrations, which mark the latest milestone for the world’s largest spiritual organisation led by women.

The administrative chief of the Brahma Kumaris, 101-year-old Dadi Janki, and Dadi Hridaya Mohini, the additional chief, will grace the occasion with their presence and blessings.

Brahma Kumaris, headquartered in Mount Abu, is a spiritual movement dedicated to personal transformation and renewal and was founded in 1937.  It runs more than 8,500 meditation centres worldwide.
