Jnana Yogashrama seer points out original wealth in life

Mysore: Oct 26, 2012 DH News Service

Anything that has a start must see an end: Siddeshwara Swamiji

Jnana Yogashrama seer Sri Siddeshwara Swamiji insisted people to fill their hearts with experiences of good deeds even if their pockets are empty without money.

He was speaking at the valedictory of his nine-day discourse organised at Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering here to mark the silver jubilee of Vidya Ganapathi Temple on the premises on Thursday. He propounded that anything that has a start must see an end, a filled container will be emptied and something which flies high should land down on the earth. “Similarly the day has come when the series of my discourse in the city has come to an end.”

Every being on earth is born to discern his duty which could play a role in nourishing the world. Life is like waves with ups and downs in right frequencies to mend it for a better future, he added.


Quoting William Shakespeare he said, “Richness of life lies in contentment and not in wealth. Contentment is the real wealth which one has to gain in lifetime.”

Humorously, he thanked people who listened to his discourse for nine days sitting on the ground. He said: “I had thought city people will not sit on ground. This event proved it false. The great thing is you people have been amidst nature for all these days, early in the morning. There is nothing as loving as earth and nothing as cool as air that blows.”

Speaking on the occasion, chief minister Jagadish Shettar expressed happiness over completion of the 10-day Dasara festivities in a peaceful manner.

He said, due to Cauvery river issue, there was a fear in everybody’s heart regarding the success of the celebration of Dasara, but no such untoward incident happened.
Singing paeans of Sri Siddeshwara Swamiji, he opined that the festivities have recorded accomplishment which is a result of the inauguration done by the seer.

Suttur seer Sri Shivaratri Deshikendra Swamiji opined that the audience who attended the programme gained a sense of satisfaction along with happiness. Illustrating a vacahana of Basavanna, he said, Siddeshwara seer sticks by his words. He is a man who practices what he preaches.

Discourses of the seer are so simple that it makes the complex Vedas and Upanishads easy for a common man to understand, he added.

Sri Mukthidananda Swamiji  of Ramakrishna Ashrama, seer of Mysore branch of Adichunchanagiri mutt Sri Somanatha Swamiji, Hosamutt seer Sri Chidananda Swamiji, district in-charge minister S A Ramdas, MP A H Vishwanath, N Shekar of JSS Nodal Centre and others were present on the occasion.
