Inspiring Message By Pujya Swamiji on World No Tobacco Day 2021
Today on World Tobacco Day, Pujya Swamiji issues a clarion call to all smokers, encouraging them to quit tobacco and say “Yes!” to life. He shares, “अगर जीवन से है प्यार , तो तम्बाकू का करे बहिष्कार ”
Detailing all of the ill effects of smoking and other addictions, Pujya Swamiji establishes how addictions lead to myriad challenges like violence, suicide, and even Job loss. Calling life a gift of God, Pujya Swamiji says wasting it because of addictions is a negative way of thinking – especially while we are in the middle of a pandemic, since tobacco use weakens immunity and makes you prone to catching the coronavirus.
“Challenges and threats are part of life and everyone faces them, but the solution is not escaping them by choosing addiction”, he shares.
“The solution is in you and you can beat all challenges by changing your thoughts and by being patient and having a pro-life attitude.”
