His compassion and wisdom will continue to inspire generations. I had a very close relationship with him over the years. I recall my visit to Belur Math in 2020 when I interacted with him. A few weeks ago in Kolkata, I also visited the hospital and enquired about his health. My thoughts are with the countless devotees of the Belur Math. Om Shanti, the prime minister further wrote.
