The ideology of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Swatantryaveer Savarkar has been instrumental in preserving our nation – Parampujya Swami Govinddev Giri Maharaj

The Ganges of my thoughts has flowed through the two banks of Swami Vivekananda and Swatantryaveer Savarkar, ultimately reaching the sacred grounds of the Shri Ram Temple. The profound principles upheld by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and the indomitable freedom fighter Savarkar played a pivotal role in the salvation of our country. After numerous generations, the Shri Ram Temple proudly stands. It is now our responsibility to witness our nation standing tall in this very generation. In my pursuit across the literary realms of the world, I have found no treasures comparable to the legacies of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Sant Dnyaneshwar Maharaj in the annals of history. Parampujya Swami Govinddev Giri Maharaj expressed, “If Maharashtra follows the exemplary path set by these luminaries, it has the potential to once again lead the world. Let us collectively embark on this journey to elevate our nation.

Spirituality for all is the hallmark of Swami Govinddev Giri Maharaj! – Ranjit Savarkar, Working President of the Swatantryaveer Savarkar National Memorial.

Veer Savarkar rightly expressed that when we forget Rama, our nation faces demise. Swamiji, when entrusted with the role of treasurer for the Ram Janmabhoomi, executed this responsibility with utmost transparency and timeliness, thereby playing a pivotal role in the successful construction of the Ram Temple,” declared Ranjit Savarkar, the Working President of the Swatantryaveer Savarkar National Memorial.
