Grand victory for Hindu Devalaya Parirakshana Samithi

via HK published on November 20, 2007

The Andhra Pradesh State Assembly has unanimously passed the Temple Amendment Bill “Hindu Endowments Act” (Devadaya Savarana Bill). Over 30,000 temples that are seeking Deepam (lamp) and Naivedyam (offering to God) are now out of the control of the Endowment Department (Devalaya Shaka), Andhra Pradesh government. Even the temples with income less than Rupees 2 Lakhs per annum are released from their control.

It is for the first time in India that a Dharmic Parishat, an autonomous body consisting of heads of Mathas and Pithas along with Dharmic thought leaders will take charge of the temple affairs.

This is a grand victory for the Hindu Devalaya Parirakshana Samithi (HDPS) and its supporters. Incidentally this has occured on the day that Sri Kamal Kumar and his entourage has reached Hyderabad on this padayatra. This is proof that the Lord himself has participated in this padayatra.

This padayatra originated in Basar, Adilabad District (a border town of Mahrashtra and Andhra Pradesh) and will complete at Tirumala-Tirupathi Devasthanam, Chitoor District. The padayatra has covered 760 temples, 6 districts and 1400 kilometers over the past 66 days. He has met over 300,000 people on this padayatra so far.

Sri Kamal Kumar has been spearheading the effort to bring awareness amongst the Hindus, and a change of mind in the government with matters governing the Hindu temples. This padayatra has reached many hearts and woken us from the slumber. Hindu Devalaya Parirakshana Samithi is supported by Devoted Hindus in India, USA and other countries.
