Moral authority for all times

15 January 2022

“Today we attach special importance to the in-depth study and wide popularisation of the rich literary heritage of Magtymguly Pyragy and the glorification of his name. To honour the philosopher Pyragy means to glorify the literature and the heritage of the nation. His artistic works, which are a combination of philosophical principles, spiritual views and secular outlook, is a unique school.” The author of these words, which served as a special stimulus for a more in-depth study of the rich literary heritage of the great master of words, is the respected President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov.

Under the wise leadership of the head of state, not only the Turkmen people, but the entire world community are already actively preparing for the celebration of the 300th anniversary of the birth of the remarkable classical author in 2024. In accordance with the Resolution issued by our Arkadag-President, a steering committee has been established to widely celebrate the upcoming anniversary. All these important events are directed at drawing the attention of the international scientific and literary community to the further study and widespread popularisation of the heritage of Magtymguly, which has entered the golden treasury of world literature.
