A world record for “Largest Addiction Awareness Festival” was awarded in the event by World Book of Records, London, to Gopal Krishna Goswami, ISKCON GBC, in presence of Dr. Harsh Vardhan, Unioun Health Minister.
The theme for this year’s festival is ‘Anti-Addiction: Making India Addiction Free’. With this, ISKCON hopes to inspire youngsters to realize their true potential in a clean, green and progressive India. The annual festival will bring in a mix of academics, dignitaries and over 8000 youngsters together to inspire, learn and celebrate life.
The event was focusing on motivating the youth to live 'addiction-free'.
When recovering alcoholics have stayed sober for some time, they may feel tempted: “Let me take just one drink – what harm can it do?”
No one takes their first drink with the desire to become alcoholics. They think that they are just having some fun; they are being cool; they are fitting into the crowd. They believe that they can drink without becoming drunkards.
Work is essential for survival, as the Gita acknowledges. When work becomes the sole definer of our self-identity and self-worth, it degenerates to an indulgence, even an addictive indulgence.
