'Religion has to grow beyond language, caste'

RSS workers march past in Chikmagalur city on Thursday.
Adichunchanagiri mutt seer Nirmalanandanath regretted that India has lost a lot of its geographical locations and strength of awareness due to forgetting our culture and tradition.

He was speaking after inaugurating the new office of Samarpana Trust at Sayi Madhuvan Layout in Chikmagalur city on Thursday.

Referring to Combodia, he said though the country is small in size, it has a number of Hindu temples. But none of sanctum sanatoriums of the temple has the Hindu idols. The country is now filled with Buddhists and Hinduism no more exists in that country, he said.

Crediting India as mother of all inventions, the seer said Indians in the past have spread wide knowledge to the world. Scientist Einstein had claimed that Indian Veda, Upanishaths and Bhagavadgeetha were motive for his scientific inventions. But, unfortunately, the attempts made to include Bhagavadgeetha in textbooks are termed as non-secular.

In his opening remarks, Rastriya Swayamsevak Sangha senior leader N Krishnappa said that all those residing in India were originally Hindus and were later converted into other religions.

Hindu religion has to grow beyond language, caste, region and party differences. RSS has its branches in 108 villages in Chikmagalur district and the branches should be opened in 2400 villages, he said.

Prior to the stage function, RSS workers took out a march past in the city.
