Chitradurga: Shree Vishwesha Theertha Swamiji of Sri Pejawar Adhokshaja Matt has created an awareness here on Tuesday, May 28 about the importance of the Indian tri-colour national flag.
Speaking on the occasion of installation ceremony of Sri Rajarajeshwari Temple at Gonur village, he said that devotion must not only be on the idols installed in the temple but also on the tri colour.
He said, “We all bow down and respect our national flag, which is only a piece of cloth. By respecting it, our national spirit will be lifted.”
Speaking about the importance of the temples, Vishwesha Theertha said, “In the idol carved out of a stone lies the universal power of God. Hence it is very essential to have temples, which keeps spirit in mankind lifted and also helps in inner awakening.”
“We Hindus had the power to tolerate and retaliate against the attacks of foreign rulers, only through the temples”, he added.
