VHP passes resolutions on illegal conversions, liberation of monasteries, temples

The Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Sunday passed resolutions for steps to be taken for protection against Coronavirus pandemic, prevention of illegal religious conversions and liberation of Mutt and Mandirs ; that is monasteries and temples.

The two-day meeting of the Central Board of Trustees and the Governing Council of Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) was held at Faridabad in  Haryana.

Giving details of the meeting, the Working President of Vishva Hindu Parishad, Senior Advocate Alok Kumar said that this meeting raised the key issue for protection against the Corona infections .

He said, “Illegal religious conversion is a national curse and the nation must get liberated from it. In 11 States there are laws for its prevention, but the problem and conspiracy are nationwide. This international meeting is, therefore, of the unanimous view that a central law should be made against it, and only then there will be freedom from this curse.”

We have also called upon the Hindu society to remain ever watchful about the anti-Bharat and anti-Hindu conspiracies of the Mullah-Missionaries, and prevent it by all Constitutional methods”, he said.

Alok Kumar also said, “a resolution was passed to liberate all monasteries and temples from the control of governments.” This resolution said that the Mutt and Mandirs constitute the nuclei of the belief, faith and worship of the national society of Bharat .

In the meeting, about 50 central and regional office-bearers were personally present while about 350 provincial office-bearers and office-bearers joined the meeting virtually (online) from abroad.

Christian businessman builds Siddhi Vinayaka temple in Udupi

 Gabriel Nazareth, a 77-year old Catholic businessman from Shirva in Karnataka, has become an embodiment of communal harmony by building a temple dedicated to Lord Siddhi Vinayaka for his Hindu brethren. He spent Rs 2 crore to construct the temple, in memory of his parents — Late Fabian Sebastian Nazereth and Sabeena Nazereth — on his 15 cents of ancestral land, and gifted it to the Hindu community.

“I always felt blessed by Lord Siddhi Vinayaka since the time I became a devotee of the deity 60 years ago. I completed by SSLC in 1959 and went to Mumbai in search of a job. I was just 14 years old then and was staying near Prabhadevi in Mumbai. A little further was the famous Siddhi Vinayaka temple where I paid obeisance to the lord every day,” he told The New Indian Express.

After some years, he started a metal dying workshop and became a successful entrepreneur, starting business units in three different places.

At the recently opened temple, a beautiful black coloured 36-inch Ganesha idol was installed. A house for the temple priest has also been built near the temple. The temple administration has been handed over to a three-member committee comprising engineer Nagesh Hegde and Gabriel’s friends Sathish Shetty and Ratnakar Kukyan.

Sathish Shetty said that Gabriel single-handedly built the temple without any donations due to his devotion for Lord Siddhi Vinayaka.

Gabriel,  came back to Shirva 12 years ago as he had wound up his business in Mumbai. Eight years back, he had renovated a ‘Naga Bana’ (sacred grove) near Bantakal in Shirva. Though a bachelor, he has financially assisted more than 60 people to get married


Curtains come down on Rath Yatra festival  in Puri

Curtains came down on the annual Rath Yatra festival in Puri Jagannath Temple in Odisah, after the Trinity was escorted into the Srimandir’s Garbha Gruha (sanctum sanctorum) in Pahandi procession called Niladri Bije on Friday.

The homecoming rituals of the deities started early in the morning with the servitors performing Mangala Alati, before the Gopal Bhog was offered. At noon, Madhyana Dhupa was offered. Bahuda Pahandi began at 5 pm with the idols of Rama, Krishna and Madan Mohan taken inside the Srimandir first followed by Sudarshan, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra. Lord Jagannath was the last to enter the sanctum sanctorum at 7.45 pm. 

Before Lord Jagannath’s return to the Garbha Gruha, His ‘Goti Pahandi’ was obstructed by His consort Goddess Mahalaxmi as she was annoyed for not being allowed to accompany Him on the journey to Gundicha temple. The Goddess was pacified after being offered Rasagola and the Lord was let in.

The administration had created a bio-bubble for carpenters who took 55 days to construct the chariots.

For the second successive year, Rath Yatra was organised without participation of devotees to contain the spread of Covid virus.


High-time we have a music university in Tanjore says  Ilaiyaraaja

Legendary music composer Ilaiyaraaja on Thursday said that while there are schools and univerisities for music in foreign countries, Tamil Nadu too should have one in Tanjore.

Recently, videos of his granddaughter Ziya Yuvan playing the keyboard went viral on social media. “It’s in her genes obviously,” he smiled. “She has seen me and Yuvan playing it and has taken it up. When the time comes, I believe we can work together,” Ilaiyaraaja added.

Tell him that music was the best healer for many during the lockdown, he replied, “Absolutely. A music is like a new bloomed flower. It should be fresh and people should be able to listen to it even after several years.”

Ilayaraja who composed for over 1300 films in 45 years,  told that his work is in progress.
