Happiness lies within, not in materialistic pursuits, says seer

Inspite of having achieved lengthy strides in science and technology, space and medical science, it is remarkable to note that in the present age, man continues to long for the eternal peace and content, said Pandomatti Viraktamutt Seer Gurubasavamahaswamy.

He was addressing a religious meet at the idol installation programme in the newly constructed Shrishail Mallikarjunaswamy Temple at Gyralli village near Kenkere on Sunday.

Temples are sources of peace and tranquility. Through mediation and the observation of religious ceremonies, one can usher in contentment and satisfaction in his or her life. By practising a few means and methods, one can try to be with peace with oneself, the seer added.

Speaking on the occasion, president of the Taluk Sharana Sahitya Parishat Shyamsundar Dibbadahalli said that the in the olden days, the vachanakaras used to try to find a solution to the panaceas of life by suggesting remedies through their songs and texts. They used to inspire the common man with a message to be followed and implemented in their day-to-day life to lead a contented life.

He said unfortunately we need to listen to a lot of devotional and inspiration songs and texts, but however, we never take the trouble to implement them. It is a simple and yet important truth for ever one to realise that happiness lies within oneself and not in the materialistic pursuits of life which was being propagated since time immemorial, he added.

Geetha from the Brahmakumari Eshwariya Vishwavidyalaya and retired Agriculture officer Chandrashekhar also spoke on the different subjects.

K V Ramesh, K P Channabasavaiah, Kotresh, D Ramesh, Mallesh, Madhu, Prabhu, Harish and several others were present on the occasion.
