Assam Governor attends a Yagna on the occasion of Damodar dev Tithi

Guwahati, April 27: Assam Governor Shri Banwarilal Purohit attended Vishnu Yagna organised in sync with Damodar Dev tithi by Deva Damodar Sanskritik Gaveshana Kendra at Paltan Bazar here today to seek blessings for the welfare of the people of the State.

          Addressing the programme Purohit said, “Yagna holds an important position in our society since ages. It is performed to nip the negative energies in the bud and purify and sanctify the society with positivities. The philosophies of yagna teaches us to promote good human values and live in harmony with all living being.”

Governor Purohit also said that Indian culture is the most ancient at the same time very deep-rooted because of its strong link with the religion. Though several attempts were made to disintegrate this composite culture, all such attempts were thwarted because of its inseparable link with the religion, Purohit added.

Lauding the culture and the people of Assam, the Governor said, “The Assamese culture and the faith of the people are shaped by the great Vaishnavite saint Srimanta Sankardev who have a great influence in promoting and establishing the Assamese culture worldwide.
Thanking the organizer for holding the Yagna, Purohit said that as the flames of the yagna purifies the surrounding by destroying all evil forces, likewise human beings should also lay down their selfishness, ego, hatred etc in the flames to make the society a better place for living.

Satradhikar of Patbaushi Satra Shri Guru Krishna Goswami, President of  Deva Damodar Sanskritik Gaveshana Kendra  Shri Shiba Prasad Sharma Doloi along with a host of other dignitaries were present at the programme.
