Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Mysuru Campus celebrated its Graduation Day on 23rd April, 2022 at its premises in Bogadi II Stage, Mysuru.
Sampujya Swami Amritageetananda Puri in his benedictory address quoted, “After their graduation most of the students prefer going to developed countries like U.S. for their higher studies and jobs. But there are achievers who returned from the developed countries to India with the utmost intention of serving our society. Students should consider such achievers as their role models and have to attain something great in motherland”. Speaking about the knowledge he stated that, science and technology is very necessary for development. But at the same time, they make us so dependent that we cannot do anything without them. So, we should focus on spirituality which in turn help us to shape our own life. If we want a perfect life, then there should be balance between spirituality and science- technology, he added.
Dr. Niranjana Vanalli, Vice Chancellor, Bengaluru North University delivered convocation address. “There will be light at the end of the dark tunnel; and the life after COVID proved it. During pandemic student fraternity had to face lots of challenges. But now the same student group has various opportunities in front of them. Young graduates can prove themselves with their uniqueness and specialities. Acceptance of new challenges, new things will make one person very successful in his life”. Dr. Vanalli gave insights on life after the graduation. “Graduation ceremonies are not the end of learning. It is a new beginning of learning, where you are adapting skills which are important for life. There is no shortcut for success. Hard work and patience will ultimately lead you to greater heights in life. More than success, marks and money, attitude and values are important in this world. The world will grade you based on your positive attitudes. So, inculcate positive attitude and values in life” he stated.
Dr.H.V. Rajeeva, Chairman, Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) was the Guest of Honour during this occasion. “This convocation is giving you an educational degree, but you are stepping in to a big platform called life now.
