    The energy of Kashi is not only intact, it also continues to take new expansions. Yesterday Kashi offered the grand 'Viswanath Dham' at the feet of Mahadev: PM

    "Today is the auspicious occasion of Gita Jayanti. On this day in the battlefield of Kurukshetra, when the armies were face to face, humanity got the ultimate knowledge of Yoga, Spirituality and Paramarth. On this occasion, while bowing at the feet of Lord Krishna"

    "I bow to Sadhguru Sadafal Dev ji, I bow to his spiritual presence. I also express my gratitude to Shri Swatantradev Ji Maharaj and Shri Vigyandev Ji Maharaj, who are keeping this tradition alive, giving new expansion"

    "Cities like Banaras have preserved the seeds of India's identity, of art, of entrepreneurship, even in the toughest of times. Where there is a seed, the tree begins to expand from there.  And that is why, today when we talk about the development of Banaras, it also forms the roadmap for the development of the whole of India"

    "Our country is so wonderful that, whenever the time is opposite, some saint-vibhuti descends here to divert the current of time. It is India whose biggest hero of freedom is called Mahatma by the world"

    "At the time of freedom struggle, Sadhguru had given us the mantra – Swadeshi. Today, in the same spirit, the country has now started 'Self-reliant India Mission'. Today, the local business-employment of the country, products are being strengthened, local is being made global"

    "Whenever I come to Kashi or even stay in Delhi, I attempt to keep pace with the development work being done in Banaras. After 12 o'clock last night, as soon as I got the opportunity, I went out again to see the work that is going on in Kashi"
