Last Sunday, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, in his famous program ‘Mann Ki Baat’, Praised a man by name Jonas Masetti. As soon as Brazil’s Jonas Masetti was named, suddenly got the attention of the people of the whole country and the world. After all, who is this Jonas Masetti?
However, let me tell you, this name does not need any identity because his work speaks for himself and we respect him. So it is such that the whole world is already convinced about the culture of India that is why many people from Russia to Japan are not only adopting the traditions and heritage of India but are also getting married to the customs here.
Let us tell you the story of Jonas Massetti of Brazil. So, this man has been living in India for the last four years, after learning the scriptures and Vedantas well, through technology, and is now sending the message of India’s culture and scriptures to the whole world.
The great thing is that people also know him by the name of Vishwanath, so our foreign Vishwanath has now been completely colored in the country.
Jonas worked for a stock market company after completing his mechanical engineering studies in his home country of Brazil. But India’s culture and soil are such that, under its influence, Mr. Jonas was pulled from Brazil.
He was so attracted by Indian culture and Vedanta, that he spent four years in Vedanta studying in India at Arsh Vidya Gurukulam in Coimbatore, and completed Vedanta’s education under the guidance of Swami Dayanand Saraswati.
And now he is teaching Indian culture through online courses and lectures through various mediums like podcasts and YouTube by connecting to social media. And in the last 7 years, more than one and a half lakh students have been taught the knowledge of Vedas.
Another big thing, some people from their country Brazil came to India in search of them, but on the contrary, they lived here for a whole life.
Even after some people returned from here, they became cultural messengers for India.
Jonas has given knowledge on Vedanta and Bhagavad Gita in Brazil. And today he is running an organization called ‘Vishwavidya’ in Brazil, which is located in the hills of Petropolis, and a little bit away from Rio de Janeiro.
Now Jonas Masetti is doing such a great job, so our Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also given him the best wishes for his efforts.
