On receiving his awards and citations His Holiness said:

“This honour is not just for a single person, but for the whole world and the ancient tradition of the East. More than that, this is the honour for all the faithful believers of all the World religions such as Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, Christianity, Buddhism, Jainism, Zorastrian. This historical honour is not for a single person but for all the Nations and their various cultures. This honour in fact is the honour of entire humanity. This felicitation has once more brought the greatness and humility of Great Britain before the whole World.”

The event also marked the official launch of the Bhagwan Shree Lakshami Narayan Dham UK’s Annual Day to be known as -“Brahmrishi Shree Kumar Swami Day” dedicated in honour of the interfaith, charity and volunteering work that His HolinessBrahmrishi Shree Kumar Swamiji embodies. On this day each year, all followers in the UK will perform selfless voluntary acts of kindness and public service and do something positive that makes a meaningful difference to someone else’s quality of life, happiness and prosperity, by sacrificing their time without any gain or reward. They will be encouraged to engage in various volunteering projects to help out in charitable organisations, schools, old people’s homes, hospitals, hospices and in particular consider giving blood or joining the organ donor register.

Commenting on the event and his meeting with His Holiness, Stephen Timms MP commented: “Faith organisations across the country are making a positive contribution in communities across the UK, and I welcome the opportunity this event presents to bring them together. I am glad to have been able to help to sponsor it. It has been a pleasure to meet with His Holiness and learn more about the valuable impact of his humanitarian work.”
