Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, also known as ‘Amma’ wished Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan.
In a video message, Amma says, ” In the puranas, there is a ‘katha’ on Lord Krishna, in which, during the storm and torrential rain he held the Govardhan Mountain on his little finger and protected all the ‘gopi gopikas’.”
“Similarly, may the Prime Minister protect everyone the way God protects us, successfully,” she said.
“This Raksha Bandhan, may our PM be protected through God’s grace, so that, through him, all Indians are protected with his actions. Even though his actions already are commendable, may God give him grace and strength to carry out his responsibilities with even more excellence,” she said.
Responding to Amma’s sweet message, PM Modi said that he is humbled by her Raksha Bandhan greetings and it is an honour and privilege to work for our great nation.
“Respected @Amritanandamayi Ji, I am most humbled by your special Raksha Bandhan greetings. It is my honour and privilege to work for our great nation. Blessings from you, and from India’s Nari Shakti, give me great strength. They are also vital for India’s growth and progress,” PM Modi tweeted.
