Statue of equality
Statue of EQUALITY
The Statue Of Equality project is a dedication to the great icon of Equality, Sri Ramanujacharya Swamy. He created ripples in the society 1000 years ago with His revolutionary thoughts and brought the neglected on the same platform on par with the elite when the society was gripped with social evils of discrimination.
Sri Ramanujacharya Swamy was a human manifestation of the heavenly star who lighted the path of equality and devotion. Born in Sriperumbudur, Tamil Nadu, in 1017 A.D, He dedicated His entire life to reforming the minds and lives of people. He was a saint who propagated universal brotherhood. He embraced the downtrodden and treated them on par with the elites of the society. He taught that the social order is actually a moral order (rule of conduct) and the crux of all values is man’s desire for the better. He was the ambassador of Equality, the epitome of wisdom, an ocean of compassion and the most exemplary human serving as an inspiration for now and for generations to come so the world becomes a better place for everyone.
Sri Ramanujacharya Swamy’s doctrine of equality propelled His Holiness Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji, under the banner of JETUSA, to take up His life’s mission of constructing a Statue of Equality – an equality of gender, religion and race in the benevolence of the God Almighty. 2017 marks the 1000th year since Sri Ramanujacharya Swamy’s birth. To honor His contributions to society as a whole, a 216 feet tall statue will be erected and consecrated in 2018. This $150MM (~150 Million USD) project is being built adjacent to Jeeyar Integrated Vedic Academy (JIVA) Asramam in Sriramnagar, Shamshabad, Hyderabad, India
