Speaking at the Santha Sammelana, organised on account of Mahamastakabhisheka at Dharmasthala on Friday, he said that Rs 2 crore was sanctioned for installing high mast lamps at Dharmasthala.

“All the roads leading to Dharmasthala will be developed. As many as 100 lakes will be rejuvenated in association with SKDRDP under the direction of Dharmasthala Dharmadhikari D Veerendra Heggade in the state,” he announced.

Acharya Sri 108 Vardhamana Sagara Munimaharaja said: “Worldly pleasures will not provide solace in life. Non-violence, sacrifice, friendship and meditation will help an individual to attain peace of mind. The life of Bahubali is a message to all of us”.
