Abohar. A 20-member delegation of Indian parliamentarians, led by the Lok Sabha Speaker, Om Birla, visited the BAPS Hindu Mandir site in Abu Dhabi.

Among them were members of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, and representatives from the UAE. Om Birla was accompanied by UAE Federal National Council Member Ayesha Mohammed Al Mulla, Sushil Kumar Modi, Ram Kumar Verma, M.K. Vishnu Prasad, Shankar Lalwani, Dr. Sujay Radha Krishan VikhePatil, P. Ravinder Nath, Fauzia Tahseen Ahmed Khan and Utpal Kumar Singh.

The delegation was traditionally welcomed by Brahmavihari Swami and others.

They were given an overview of Pramukh Swami’s and Mahant Swami’s vision behind the mandir, and an update of the construction work to date.

The delegation observed the ‘Rivers of Harmony’ exhibit, which presents the harmonious purpose, history, and construction of the BAPS Hindu Mandir, as well as the critical community work carried out, including the COVID-19 relief provided.

Brahmavihari Swami explained, “The purpose of this traditional temple is unification of minds and hearts. It has brought not just India and the UAE closer together, but has brought countries, cultures, communities, and religions closer together. We thank the leaders of both the UAE and India for their support and encouragement in creating this spiritual oasis for global harmony.”

Speaker Om Birla said, “The BAPS Hindu Mandir in Abu Dhabi is an ideal example of global harmony. It is more than a temple, it is truly an Oasis of Spirituality, Beauty and Universality. For hundreds of years, the magnanimity and the integrity of the rulers of UAE and the leaders of India shall be celebrated by generations to come. I congratulate Pramukh Swami, BAPS saints, volunteers and workers involved in this selfless saga of harmony. It is a matter of great pride for India and for Indians all over the world.”
