May 20, 2024

Mysore/Mysuru: Suttur Mutt Seer Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Swamiji said that the city’s Avadhoota Datta Peetham Seer Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji is working tirelessly for global welfare and welfare of mankind.

He was speaking after inaugurating the Silver Jubilee celebration of Sri Datta Venkateshwara Kshetra at Dattanagar on Ooty road here yesterday.

Maintaining that divine blessings will help overcome all troubles if one believes in God, Deshikendra Swamiji said that is why the Seer is striving for creating public awareness on belief and trust in God. Pointing out that Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji has earned so much trust that people come to him seeking solutions to their problems, he reiterated that it is important for people to have belief in divinity.

“It is important for man to have faith and trust in God. There can  be no suspicions when there is trust. Similarly, there can be no trust where there are suspicions. Having a firm mind and belief in God will help solve many of our problems. But God also gives us trouble to test us. However, the faith in God will help us in overcoming our troubles and tribulations,” Deshikendra Swamiji said.

“The Ganapathy Sachchidananda  Ashrama will be celebrating its Golden Jubilee in two years. I wish the Seer a long life and celebration of his 100th birthday,” he added.

Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji in his address, called upon the people to develop the habit of hearing Sahasranama and Suprabhata. Pointing out that Vishnu Sahasranama or Shiva Sahasranama have the power to get etched in the minds of people who hear it regularly, he underlined the need for  hearing them daily.

Recalling the growth of Datta Venkateshwara Kshetra over the past 25 years, he called upon the people to develop a generous mind for the society’s welfare.
