'Bhagavadgita essential in technology-driven society'

Swarnavalli Sonda Mahasamsthan Seer  Shankaracharya Gangadharendra on Wednesday said it has become inevitable to spread the message of Bhagavadgita as man is deeply engrossed in the world of technology.

Speaking at Sri Bhagavadgita Abhiyan here at Jaganmohan Palace, the seer said that the man has  created almost all the facilities inventing technologies in this modern world.
At the same time, he seems to be forgetting the culture of the land and hence the Mahasamsthan has launched an ‘abhiyaan’.

Quoting the words of Albert Einstein the seer said: ‘Religion without science is handicapped, and science without religion is totally blind’.

Citing an example on advancement of technology being misused by the people, the seer said it is only due to innovative system in identifying the gender of the foetus, female foeticide had seen a rise.

Most of the organisations had to take massive awareness drive.

The seer felicitated Avadhoota Dattapeetha Seer Ganapati Sachchidananda, Bhashyam Swamiji and Ilai Alwar Swamiji on the occasion.

The seers were brought to the dais amid the chanting of vedic hymns and women clad in green sarees carrying kalashas, leading them.
