Udupi, Nov 10: 'Chappara Muhurat' was performed by Sri Vishweshateertha Swamiji of Paryaya Pejawar Math at Royal Garden near Kalsanka here on Friday November 10, ahead of the 'Dharma Samsad' (religious parliament).

Addressing the gathering, Sri Muktananda Swamiji of Keranje Math said, "Cow should be declared the national animal in place of tiger. All Hindus should work towards making cow a 'mother of the world'.

"Dharma Samsad is getting ready to answer to all the attacks which took place on Hindu temples and maths. The government is trying hard to label Hindu outfits and activists as ‘terrorists’. There is a planned conspiracy by the state government to suppress Hindus. Hence, it is a huge responsibility on Hindus to change the present state government by bringing unity among us.

"Saints, Hindu organizations and society should be united in making Hindu dharma shine in the world. Nearly one and half lac Hindus are expected to participate in the convention," Swamiji said.

Sri Vishweshateertha Swamiji said, "Preparations for the glorious ‘Dharma Samsad' is in full swing. A wave of Hinduism will be created through this convention at the international level. All Hindu outfits and Hindu affiliated organizations will take part in this historic convention.

"Resolutions will be passed on various important issues like building Ram Mandir. Many of the problems faced by Hindus in society will be addressed during the convention. This is a platform to find solution for all our problems. An exhibition depicting rich Hindu culture and heritage will be put."

The purpose of organizing this convention is to build Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, prohibition of cow slaughter and discuss pro-Hindu issues, he said.

Sharan Pumpwell, Keshav Raj Prabhu, Dr Vijayendra, Nalini Pradeep Rao, Rama J Rao, Sunil K R, Ratnakara Shetty, owner Royal Garden, Goutham Agarwal, owner national consumer, Somashekhar Bhat, senior BJP leader, M B Puranik, secretary of Dharma Samsad welcome committee, Padma Ratnakara, Shankar, Shreesha Naik, Lalaji Mendon, Subrahmanya Holla and Raghupati Bhat were present.

    look at this and his followers, instead of leading by example he is practicing hypocrisy. First stop beef export . In the name of buffalo, cows are slaughtered and exported . For money no gomatha. In Bombay baajrangis and Shiva sainik accompany beef trucks for hafta.

    Let each cow bakht should atleast have two cows at their homes. Cow is not holy for BJP in GOA, Kerala And North easten states including Meghalaya which is going to polls soon. Instead of fighting for unemployment, poverty they are fighting for cows.

    Declare cow a national animal. and human has slaughter animal because animal has more value then human being in bjp government.
    human has no right cow has more rights may be one in future cow will also get to vote and get addahar card.with insurance. this is BJP GOVERNMENT.

    dharma signifies behaviours that are considered to be in accord with rta, the order that makes life and universe possible, and includes duties, rights, laws, conduct, virtues and ''right way of living''

    being a swamy how can he lie?
    i didn't heard anyone attack temple, so why this swamy dragging this matter?
    dharma samsad only because of construction of ram temple, so why he is speaking against state govt, what's link between those?? bjp only promise, if they come to power they will construct ram temple, so this swamy should ask bjp, why they didn't follow their words??
    before declaring cow a national animal, don't this swamy have information that india is number 1 in the world in terms of beef export, so why don't he do dharna in rajghat, against bjp to ban all cow meat export companies??
    being a preacher is okay, but being a political swamy not acceptable.

    Now, can some one tell me who is this Swami ? He should step out from Pejawar and see the world how bueautiful it is. He says Hindus are suppressed. Yes, they are suppressed in U.P. where a Swami is CM. Last week a 9 month pregnant dalit woman was killed by upper caste Hindu only because she touched their dust bin. Can this Swami explain whether Dalit is a Hindu or non-Hindu ? Dear Swami, Hindus are suppressed by none other than fellow Hindus. In Islam and Christianity, all humans are creation of God. If you are truly interested to work for the welfare of Hindus, start preaching upper caste people to accept dalit girls as daughter-in-law and give upper caste girls in marriage to lower caste boys. Being a spiritual leader, do not misguide people and do not be an agent for any political party. Your biased views may be accepted in U.P. and Bihar, but certainly not in Karnataka. Jai Hind. Jai akhand Karnataka.

    Bharatiya is a culture which welcomed all culture s and different religion s from all over the world in the past 1200 years. Most of these were invaders who oppressed our woman and children and eventually forcing some to change their beliefs.
    The localites who worshipped 33 crore dieties, where large hearted even when to extending to support to build their place of worship.
    However our own government from past 70 year's not only divided our country but also propogated so much of hatred among the people with their all out appeasing policies.

    We are in 21 St century, we need our respect and heritage to be recognized all over the world.

    Not giving too much if attention to small time religious leaders who make vague comments to jostle for space in news paper along with perennial politicians, we have to look forward for a bright India in near future.

    @Peter KSA,I quite support you fully.Let alone getting married with girls from lower to Brahman boys,let one lower caste person touch his feet of a swami.That itself will bring a big hues and crys.Still these people are not yet comeout of their shells.sit on thrones and mkae others work of low class work I wish they come to Europe and let something learn.(like cleaning latrines ,or touch everyone,or sit at a table with others)

    Hindus call cow their mother and God, then I thought myself how swami calls it animal. But, my neighbor, a Hindu told me, the swami is a very learned person and there is nothing wrong. According to my neighbor, there are 8 fish gods and 63 animal gods. He said famous animal gods are Nandi, Narasimha, Hanuman, Ganesha, Varaha and Kurma. Although, it looks strange to me, I think, my neighbor has a point.

    Tiger is our national animal and very soon it is going to be extinct. Why these people want the cow to end up like tiger? Strange fact about BJP is that the top leaders talk about economy, development and silent about communal, culture... But leaders at state level and below are busy with cow, religion, and similar issues..They want educated voters and the religiously sentimental voters....nice strategy. Keep simple folks busy in these issues and they will never have time to think about real national or social problems....

    Its quite amazing now. Swamijis are preaching like "Saadik barpana aathada guddu thinpana". they are telling cow is not HOLY ITs just a animal. There these holy people came to the point. That is why you believe in one God and not 5000 gods.

    My dear all Swamijis who believe in cow, please ask your Central BJP Government to ban beef export. It really hearts my feeling. On one hand we say COW is holy and on the other hand we are number one in beef export, this bitter truth each and every my Hindu brethren is aware. What a biggest shame to all of us. Further, all Brahmins or vegetarian not to sell any kind of meat products. instead sell only vegetables. Till that time all your bhashans are useless.
