Ahead of BAPS Hindu temple inauguration in Abu Dhabi, Vedic prayers held for global harmony

New Delhi, Feb 13 (IANS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to inaugurate the BAPS Hindu temple in Abu Dhabi on February 14, the first ever in a Muslim country. The inauguration of first Hindu temple in United Arab Emirates (UAE) will be no less than a historic & memorable event, much like the Ram Temple in Ayodhya.

PM Modi will inaugurate the BAPS Hindu Temple in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday, in presence of thousands of BAPS swamis & volunteers.

Ahead of the inauguration, a Vishwa Samvadita Yagna was held at the BAPS temple, where Vedic prayers were recited for global harmony.

The event formed part of the ‘Festival of Harmony’ – a celebration of cultural diversity and spiritual unity.

“The Yagna, the first of its kind in the Middle East, brought together dignitaries, spiritual leaders, and members of the community to pray for peace, harmony and the well-being and success of everyone in the UAE and across the world,” said a Press statement.

Explaining the importance of Yagna, Swami Brahmaviharidas, the Mandir project head said, “A yagna of this significance rarely takes place outside of India. The occasion served as the perfect way to pay tribute to the Mandir’s message of global unity, a value that His Holiness Mahant Swami Maharaj is deeply passionate about. The peace and coexistence that was evoked throughout the morning embodied a beacon of hope for future generations that the Mandir will reinforce.”

While thousands of people assembled at the temple complex for Yagna, this made for a wonderful sight amongst the rare backdrop of the raining skies. Notably, the town has been witnessing wet weather for some days but it hasn’t dampened the spirits of devotees and swamis.

    I am under the impression that we Indians were voting for a Prime Minister, one of the most coveted, respected and responsible jobs of our country, but if I recall right the first elections Modi-ji campaigned as a Chaiwala. The next elections he campaigned as a Chowkidar, and in the upcoming elections I think he may campaign as a Chief Priest. I am confused, am I missing something, or someone got the job description wrong?

    A communal and anti constitutional leader is doing the inauguration of god’s house in a secular and law biding country. For this leader god is only a bargaining chip for his selfish interest. Right time at the heels of election using god once again to obligate people and blind them.
