In an address to a convention of the spiritual organization Brahma Kumaris via video conferencing, PM Modi also said the central theme of India's tradition is that God is one.
He said in India, God is not different for the Hindus, Muslims and for Parsis. The truth is one, only different people may express it differently, he said.
We are such a country which does not believe in imposing our views on anyone. We are such people who believe that knowledge has no limits, knowledge has no timing, knowledge is not bound by anything, knowledge does not need any passport, knowledge does not need a visa, the Prime Minister said.
He also talked about India's tradition of preserving nature and referred to the initiatives of his government to reduce dependence on fossil fuel and increase the use of renewable energy sources like solar power.
By the year 2020, when the country celebrates 75 years of Independence, we will generate 175 giga watts of energy from renewable sources, the Prime Minister said.
He said the more energy India produces from renewable energy, the more the world will benefit.
