Lecture by Sadguru Dr. Charudatta Pingale, National guide of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti
Gwalior (Madhya Pradesh) – Spirituality and the teachings of Sanatan Dharma are one and the same. In Sanatan Dharma, the salvation of not only human beings, but every part of creation has been considered. Every theory of Sanatan Dharma has a science. Today we need to understand the concept of reincarnation, karmasiddhanta etc. and convey it to our future generations. Due to this, along with personal life, societal life and national life will also be happy. Sadguru Dr Charudatta Pingale delivered the Sharad lecture here. The program was attended by many Marathi speakers and all honourable executive members of the lecture series. This is the 92nd year of the lecture series which started in 1932. Sadguru Dr Pingale delivered the last lecture of the series this year. The lecture was preceeded by lighting of the ceremonial lamp and offering a garland to Devi Saraswati.
Sadguru Dr Pingale said, “Today, there is a misconception that ‘spirituality is something to be done after retirement’. On the contrary, we should teach our children about spirituality and religious practices from their childhood. Hindu Dharma and culture are on the decline despite the current Hindu majority because Hindus have not received education on Dharma in the last 76 years. Today the majority of Hindus are Hindus by birth only. Therefore, everyone must become a Hindu by karma.”
Ms. Kunda Joglekar, Vice-President of Sharad Lecture Series expressed thanks, while Mr Meghdoot Parchure compered the program. Sharad Lecture Series conducts Shlok recitation competition for children. The winners of this competition were felicitated by Sadguru Dr Pingale.
