With Cabinet Ministers of Prime Minister Modi
The Government of India has certified that Zen Nio is one of the only heirs to the great Pala Lineage of India under which India's Golden Era flourished. Sharing this title with the famed Tagore family, Nio is a bonafide Acharya that goes back over 50 generations and his lineage has received the Gold Medal from the President of India. His family temples have been awarded the highest status as "Heritage Temples of National Importance" by the Government of India and his own family altar has been placed in the National Museum. However, despite hailing from the highest caste, Nio himself does not always use his title of Acharya in order to fight oppression and to empower all those who are victims of the caste system. Nio has spent time empowering the most oppressed victims of society from all walks of life.
