Bihar: Ukrainian woman performs ‘pind daan’ for fellow countrymen who died in war with Russia

A Ukrainian woman performed ‘pind daan’ at a temple in Gaya for the salvation of the souls of all the soldiers and civilians who died in her country and Russia in the war between the two nations that began in February 2022.

Yulia told reporters: “This is the second time I have come to Gaya to perform pind daan. I had come here last year also for the salvation of my parents’ souls during this period.” The ongoing Russia-Ukraine war must end, she said adding that she came here to spread the message of peace.

Yulina performed the ritual with the help of Loknath Gaur, an ISKCON preacher. “Yulia is a firm believer of Sanatan Dharma and she has studied a lot about Gaya and the importance of performing pind daan here during Pitru Paksha,” Gaur said.

The Pitru Paksha Mela is organised annually at Vishnupad temple here. Every year, a large number of Hindus from across the world visit the temple during the Pitru Paksha to perform Pind Daan rituals.

A slap in the face of the so-called progressives and seculars in Bharat who question the Shraddha ( A ritual performed for the departed ancestors) and criticise it. When the science-oriented westerners start to believe Hindu rituals and act accordingly, then the so-called progressives of India will follow them.
