Udupi, Dec 5: The concluding ceremony of Admaru Paryaya 'Vishwarpanam' was inaugurated on Sunday December 5 at Naraharitheertha Vedike of Rajangana here in Sri Krishna Math.
Sri Sri Vishwapriyatheertha Swamiji, senior pontiff of Admaru Math inaugurated the concluding ceremony of Admaru Paryaya. Various talks and lectures on subjects related to religion, Hindu education, ancient Hindu civilization, current political changes and Indianism will be held from December 5 to 26.
On the occasion. Srinivas Acharya and Prasanna Acharya were honoured for their service in the field of Widdwat. Poornapramathi Vidyalaya was also honored for its service in the field of education. Devotees of Admar Math from Raichur were also honoured on the occasion for their service to the Math.
S N Seturao, television actor and social activist, speaking on the occasion said, "Infatuations needs to be there in the human being. Satisfy your infatuations by working and not by cheating. Work with honesty. Religion involves honesty, rituals and truthfulness. I love my religion. This does not mean that I hate other religions. Politics and religion are two sides of the same coin. Both are needed for a fruitful state. In the last 60 years, Hinduism is one of the largely criticized religions. Even few Hindus celebrate when Hinudism is being criticized. We should be sent to Nimhans for mental illness treatment, if we celebrate when Hinduism is being criticized. History says there were child marriages and sati system in our religion. These systems might have emerged due to some king's lust, but the entire religion cannot be criticized for the action of a few. In every civilization, there will be some trash which we have to let go and move forward."
Speaking at the programme, Sri Sri Vishwapriyatheertha Swamiji said, "There is a lot more to learn from animals than from human beings. We give examples of seniors when we compare. Animals have the power to sustain evils coming from human beings, but human beings do not seem to have the power to sustain any evil coming from animals. Human beings should be responsive to each others."
Addressing the gathering, Sri Sri Eeshpriyatheertha Swamiji said, "We should choose good from everything. We will reach the peak, when we choose just the good things. Betraying is a profession. If we are not encountered with sorrow, we will not be able to experience happiness."
Sri Sri Vidyendratheertha Swamiji, Sri Chithrapura Math, Mahabaleshwara Rao, CEO Karnataka Bank, Yogish of Canara Bank, Sumithra Nayak, president, CMC, Udupi, Raghupathi Bhat, MLA Udupi and others were present on the occasion.
