Sankaracharya of Shrungeri Peet
Baramati (Maharashtra): I just learnt that Maharashtra Government is trying to pass anti-Hindu Acts. It would very wrong if such thing happens. How can the Chief Minister of Maharashtra who is a devotee of Satya Sai Baba, can do such things? It is a ploy to annihilate Dharma. It shows that the Government wants to grab funds collected at temples. The above statement was made by Sreemat Jagatguru Anantsree Bharatiteertha Mahaswamiji of Shrungeri Sharada Peeth.
A discourse and ‘darshan sohala’ was organized at Chirag Garden on 8th and 9th July when Shri. Yogesh Wanamare and Shri. Vijay Kulkarni members of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) called on Him to seek His blessings. The members of HJS informed Him about the anti-Hindu Acts proposed to be passed by the Maharashtra Government, denigration of deities by anti-Hindu painter M F Hussain and genocide of Hindus in Kashmir. Swamiji was also told about the activities undertaken by HJS in these matters. On hearing it, Swamiji said that HJS is doing a great job of creating awareness among people. He praised HJS activities and as a mark of appreciation, He presented a shawl to HJS members.
In His discourse, Shankaracharya said that one should not be blind even when one can see; one should not be deaf when one can hear and should not be dumb when one can speak. He spoke about the great mission of protection and spread of Dharma undertaken by Adyashankaracharya about 1200 years ago.
During the ‘darshan sohala’ was going on, Swamiji put it on hold and spared time for HJS members. He listened to them. Later, His disciples said that Swamiji never talks to anyone for so long.
Swamiji asked for copies of articles on genocide of Hindus in Kashmir, pictures by Hussain and relevant write-ups on the topic.
