In his address, he stressed the need to safeguard Vedas for the sake of future generation and complimented the temple administration of Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) for its initiatives in protecting and promoting Vedas.

Quoting some of the famous Vedic verses, he said the chief motto of Vedas which were taught by our great gurus is for the benefit of the entire humanity and enhancing the spirit of brotherhood. “Loka Samastha Sukhino Bhavanthu...Vasudhaika Kutumbakam”, he asserted.
