Temple-trustees should jointly make efforts for teaching sadhana to people ! – Pujya Nilesh Singbal, HJS’s Guide for East and North-East Bharat
Varanasi – Owing to natural calamities like cyclones faced during the Corona pandemic, all citizens are going through a period of crisis. One should increase devotion and faith in God to face the difficult times. Spiritual practice helps in increasing faith in God. As is His promise ‘Na Mei Bhaktah Pranashyati (i.e. my devotees are never destroyed)’, God always protects His devotees. It is therefore, necessary to spread the importance of chanting God’s name and undertaking sadhana, amongst a maximum number of people. Temple-trustees should unite and work towards this goal. The above guidance was given by Pujya Nilesh Singbal, the Guide of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) for East and North-East Bharat during an online meeting of trustees, priests of temples and Mutts.

Shambhu Gaware, HJS-Coordinator said, “People, who are doing the chant for protection against Corona as advised by Sanatan Sanstha, are getting its benefits for increasing their spiritual strength. This chant is played at many hospitals and medicine shops. It is also helping in increasing mental strength.”
