Describing the dome as another wonder of the world, Naidu said, “The World Peace Dome is not only the biggest in history but is the biggest idea as well. It is the idea of restricting the world turning into a tomb. Even after conquering the whole world, the only thing a man yearn is the peace of mind.”
Talking about the Hindu culture and its high values of living, he further said, “Share and care is the core of Indian Philosophy. Hinduism is a way of life, culture is way of living and thus India represents the way of living.”
Appreciating the initiative taken by Prof Dr Vishwanath Karad for bringing the whole world together for a good cause of Peace and Humanity, Naidu said, “This day is historic and I respect the cause and work done by Prof Dr Vishwanath Karad. India has always welcomed all religions, and he is proving it by his work. Prof Dr Vishwanath Karad had seen this vision in 2005 for World Peace and he is still working in this direction. I would like to say, all students and people of the nation must visit this dome and the library which has millions of books.”
Remembering Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th Anniversary, Naidu said, “Gandhiji always had emphasized on truth, simplicity, kindness, peace and non-violence. He gave us the greatest weapon to win in any situation. Simplicity is the Gandhian thought. Five things a man should never forget – Mother, Native Place, Mother Tongue, Motherland and Guru.”
Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said, “This dome is the greatest contribution in the history of the world. The world is changing and so is India which is taking strides to bring harmony and peace in world. Saint Dnyaneshwar lived for a very short span of life but he contributed his whole life for eace and the harmony in the world. Saint Dyaneshwar always believed that it is the evil elements in humans must cease to exist. Today the people gathered here are an inspiration to the world for the humanity and peace.”
Dr. Vishwanath Karad said, “World lacks the peace of mind when everything is available at one click in 21st century. This dome includes 54 statues of philosophers, saint, and scientists. No crane machines were used to build this dome. Statue of God Ram in the center of the statues giving the message of vishva shanti and humanity.”
Dr. Vishwanath Karad recalled the words of Swami Vivekanand and said, “In 1897, Swami Vivekanand had said that 21st century will be the century of India. This is not in relation with an ego but pride, it seems like the dream of Swami Vivekanand has come true.”
Dr. Vijay Bhatkar, who is better known as Father of PARAM Super Computers said on the occasion, “This is the largest meet I’ve seen where Philosophers, Scientists, Saints and messenger of peace have gathered in harmony for humanity. Without understanding of Science, there is no religion. We will have to stand together to be the cause of world peace.”
Dr. Raghunath Mashelkar, Padma Vibhushan and eminent scientist said, “This dome is not the biggest dome in size but it has the biggest message for the world. World is facing huge problems like terrorism, global warming etc. Artificial intelligence, Advance machineries are there that’s why there is the need of emotional intelligence in the world which can be brought by maintaining peace and harmony.”
He thanked Prof Dr. Vishwanath Karad and said, “Vishwanath Karad has given so much in the field of education but this is the greatest gift to the whole world.”
Rahul Karad, Executive President of MIT-WPU said, “Prof Dr Vishwanath Karad is the soul creator of this World Peace Dome.
