Udupi: People supporting construction of Ram Mandir - Sri Sri Ravi Shankar


Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (HB)

Udupi, Dec 6: Spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar on Wednesday December 6 visited Sri Krishna Math here and sought blessings from Sri Vishweshateertha Swamiji of Paryaya Pejawar Math.

Commenting on the resolution passed at the recently held Dharma Sansad to build Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, he said, "There are different opinions in different religions. As far as Ram Mandir is concerned, we are hoping for the best results from the Supreme Court. What we wish is the growth of the nation and matter to be settled peacefully. We are working in that direction.

"People are supporting me wherever I go and meet people with regard to Ram Mandir. Muslim leaders have also expressed positive response towards the settlement of this issue.

"RSS is an independent outfit that can express its own opinion. Everyone wants a cordial, peaceful and harmonious environment during the course of Ram Temple construction. We have got huge response from both the communities. People want this matter to be solved peacefully without any conflict," he added.

Pejawar Swamiji said, "I cannot talk about the conversation that transpired between us. I would not say that the Dharma Sansad opposed Ravi Shankar Guruji for mediating in Ram Mandir dispute. We have spoken about various issues which were discussed at the Dharma Sansad.

"Babri mosque in Ayodhya was razed down on December 6, 1992 by a mob of Hindu activists who claimed that the site of the mosque was Lord Rama's birthplace. A crowd started to demolish the mosque when I rushed towards them to prevent the act of people. But a few leaders held me back due to security reasons. The demolition went on without any obstruction and I was a mute witness to that moment. I was stunned witnessing the incident right in front of my eyes. I never provoked anyone to do that. Some people dragged me into this issue. On that day, I shouted into a mike to stop the demolition, but no one bothered to listen to my words. I believe in doing good works and not promoting any kind of violence," the Swamiji said.

Commenting on Dwarakanath’s questions about the existence of Lord Rama, Swamiji said, "He should not spoil the faith of people on Lord Rama. How can he comment about another's religion? It was uncalled for."

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar conversed with Pejawar Swamiji on Dharma Sansad for more than half an hour. He also spent his time at Sri Krisha Temple and offered his prayers.

    Most Benefiting community by constructing RAM Mandir is Muslims like they benefiting in most of the famous Temple premises by doing business.

    These are religious falsifier and agent of desh drohi rss. Never allow peace full life. One who intensify blood shed never succeed his end will be worst than hitler; Saddam; Ghadafi if dig out history able to see more examples.

    Government Hospital would be better in that place . . . because there you get to see all the religion people together with no hatred, Only one thing will be there i.e. LOVE and ask each other to pray for good health of their loved ones. .. .


    So, I support for Hospital . ..

    Exciting Poor Hindus/Muslims in the name of God (Religion) should stop in the NAME of that GOD - for
    God will not WANT a MANDIR by harming/hurting people of any religion.

    We can all live - in perfect HARMONY - follow our religions (that we're born with) without offending
    or hurting anyone - No matter which religion they belong - we're all CREATURES of the SAME GOD.
    We just chose to CALL OUR GOD by a different name - how can we correct a right?
    God LOVE YOU ALL for INDIA's SAKE! JAI HIND!!

    It is absolutely disgusting that in the second decade of the 21st century, the so called wise men of the religion are still discussing Ram Mandir and Babri Masjid;

    And moreover the Supreme Court of our country will be allocating a bench of 5 judges to decide on the case!! Why? Why should the SC spare 5 judges time to decide on the ego clash of VHP/RSS/BJP on the one side and Muslim organisations/pseudo-secular parties on the other side (as far as congress is concerned, it looks like the party itself does not know which side to lean on).

    My simple solution - forget mandir or masjid. Just build one giant tea stall in that location. Tea is the most uniting force in India. It does not matter whether you are hindu or muslim, rich or poor, man or a woman, in politics or in employment, and from Srinagar to Kanyakumari and from Rajkot to Kohima, everyone loves tea.

    If it is really a matter of people worshipping God, Build one compound wall for the full disputed land, Build a grand Temple in half, and build a Grand mosque in the other half.
    walk through one gate and show to the world and to your God that you love Him / Her and worship him / her and are his / her Bhakt, and a true Hindu/Muslim.
    This if it happens the world will know you are Human and the God is supreme and you fear God.
    or else you do not care for religion, you do not care for God and to his / her creatures and you are only interested in spreading venom and poison in society. Independent India as a people with different regions, religions and cast and creed and languages and good systems and habits and beliefs is nothing but a Hollow gong hijacked by the so called God keepers ( temple priests and politicians, Mullas and politicians)
    Man has not become so great that he can beg for a second more of his life when Yamdooth / Angle of God comes and stands face to face and says buddy time is up, scheduled to leave this place now... not a second more.....
    What hypocrisy and fallacy of Humans that we fight over God and name him / her and try to own and define....
    what a tragedy of Politics and criminality that goes along with it that in our intoxication of power we disown our own children, parents, family, life partner and pursue politics and power only to come to realization that HE / SHE ( GOD) has the final say and not a second more to stay.
    It is better to build a goshala ( animal care home) / People care home or leave it along clean and green making it a park and a place to rest and relax.
    LONG LIVE HUMANITY. no one can own GOD. spread peace and make love not war. Hate nobody and peace will return to this great country. If we can not do this we do not have a right to build a house for one god destroying the house of another god.....GOD is only ONE. Actions of the people of the past can not justify the future actions... now / today is here.

    Imaginary Ram Janmaboomi Mandir exactly over the existing Babri Masjid is a conspiracy and created dispute by the RSS due to their hatred for the Muslims and nothing beyond that. The demolition of Babri Masjid was illegal and anti Hinduism to polarize the society for power and in the process they destroyed the peaceful coexistence of 1.30 billion Indian citizens.

    A REAL HINDU OR MUSLIM WILL NEVER AGREE TO BUILD MANDIR OR MOSQUE AT DISPUTED PLACE. BECAUSE BY HURTING OTHER HOW CAN HE PRAY WITH LORD RAMA OR ALLAH. INSTEAD BOTH WILL BE READY TO BUILD MANDIR OR MOSQUE AT ANY UNDIPUTED PLACE. AND PRAY PEACE FULLY AND HAPPILY.
    BUT THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN BECAUSE THOSE LEADERS WHO HAS TO GUIDE THE PEOPLE RIGHT PATH ARE BECOME SLAVES OF EGOISM.
