Satabhishekam: Swami Dayananda 81st birth year celebrations

Swami Dayananda Saraswati completes 81 years of age this August. A function was held on July last at Coimbatore to celebrate his Satabhishekam - a ceremony held when a person has lived and seen 1000 full moons in his life.

Sri S Gurumurthy, in his address said that Pujya Swamiji's Satabhishekam celebrations represented our worship of the timeless Guru parampara. It was Pujya Swamiji's destiny that he should enrich the tradition and pass it on. He said, "Pujya Swamiji is a master who can encapsulate volumes of books in one sentence. His statement "Conversion is Violence" represent his sharp thinking. In the World Millennium Summit, he convinced all the world leaders of all leading religions to agree to mutually respect all religions. he has formed the Acharya Sabha, which is today the legitimate voice of Hindus. In the Human Right Declaration by United Nations, he included mutual respect for all religions and right to retain one's faith. This was accepted and signed by all religions of the world.
He has brought an understanding about Hinduism to Jews in Hindu Jewish Meet. The long term advantage of all these strategic moves is so great that we cannot comprehend them today."
