Religious fraternity must work to bring equality in society: Bhagwat
It is the need of the hour that the religious fraternity works for establishing equanimity in the country. Any person who thinks good about India must work for bringing equality in the society and maintain the social fabric of the country, not letting it disintegrate.
These views were expressed by Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat during the Sadhu Swadhyay Sant Samagam programme organised by Dharm Jagran Samnvaya Vibhag at Patanjali Yogpeeth here on Thursday. Through this programme, Sadhus pledged to remain united. As many as 1,799 Sadhus and 145 women ascetics from across the country participated in the meet. National vice president of Dharm Jagran, Sharad Dole and the State spokesperson were also present.
Though media was kept away from the sessions, it is learnt that important discussions on cow protection, Ganga and Ram Mandir were held during the gathering.
The RSS chief said that the religious fraternity was capable of taking India to the position of Vishwa Guru. He said that members of the ascetic community sacrifice their life for the betterment of Hindu culture, take the country to heights of prosperity and establish peace in the world.
Till now ascetics have been holding the supreme position in India and it becomes all the more important that they should also make themselves capable of receiving that honour given to them.
He said that it was the need today that saints establish the equanimity among members of society.
The RSS chief also stressed on the need for conservation of environment saying that since time immemorial, Sanatan Dharma has been linked with the environment. But today on account of rising global warming, the countries were in danger. “We have been worshippers of mother nature, we worship peepal tree and others and we have worked towards conservation of Indian culture. We see rivers in the form of goddesses. Time has come that cow, Ganga, trees-these entities of nature are preserved.
They are our future with which we will be moving forward and everyone must be concerned about the conservation of these.” For this the people must be made aware. He exhorted the ascetics to spread the ideas which they discussed in the two day long congregation which concluded on Thursday.
In the morning session, he lauded the efforts of Govind Dev, the trustee of Bharat Mata Mandir trust and Yoga guru Ramdev.
