On  15th  August  2007, a Blood  Donation  Camp  was  organized at the Gandhi
General Hospital at Surendranagar. In this hospital most of  the poor people use
to get medical facilities at free of cost. And  hence  we  have encouraged people
to donate Blood  to  this hospital for the benefit of poor people. I am very glad to
say  that  we  received  very  good  response.  Most  of  the  prestigious  people

BLIA    Saurashtra   Central    Gujarat   Chapter   had   celebrated
Independence Day  of  India  on  15th  August 2007.  Our  Master
says  that  “Change  the  World and Benefit Humanity”. And  world
will  only  be  changed  with   humanitarian  activities  and  its  rich
culture.  As  we  all  know  that  India  is  the  Home Land for whole
Buddhist world. Lord Buddha born  in this  land, he walked on this
land and spread his  Dhamma  for  the  benefit  of all human kind.
Since BC 527 years India was fully Buddhist state. But during 12th
century Buddhism is disappeared from India. And then when India
became  free  from   British   Rule   on   15th  August  1947,  Lord
Buddha's Dhamma Wheel established  in  the Indian National Flag
and gave message to  whole  world   that  the  India  is  the  great  
Buddhist Country. And hence  we   have   decided   to   celebrate  
India’s Independence   Day   cause   this   day   is   not   only  the  
Indian Independence  Day  but it is truly one the biggest Buddhist
festival for the Indians. BLIA Saurashtra Central  Gujarat  Chapter
had   celebrated  this  day  with  the Master’s theme “Change  the
World and Benefit Humanity”.
