South Chennai Gurupooja

Gurupooja function was held at Sri Krishna Gana Sabha on 1-8-2010 wherein Six hundrend and five swayamsevaks participated. Shri Ram Madhav, Central Executive Member, RSS spoke on “how a true worship in our society is considered one in which the worshiper becomes the worshiped, shivo bhootwa shivam yajet.  The real worship of Shiva is for you to become Shiva.  Our Gurus are that way a bridge between our past, our civilizational heritage, our value systems, our greatness, and the present. One, who is sheelawan, is guided by his conscience, his heart, not by brain.  The most dangerous thing in our body is the brain.  So we in RSS always try to encourage people to become sheelawan.  Be sensitive to the needs of your society.  You can lead a happy life without thinking about your next door neighbor, you can lead.”

He also narrated an incident: “I was in Hyderabad last year.  One Muslim gentleman came to meet me.   He has told me that ‘Sir the RSS blood is flowing in my family.  I was surprised.  What is this RSS blood flowing.  But he said, ‘Sir when my daughter was to deliver a child, she urgently needed some blood.  The doctors said go to RSS office.  Then, I said sir, I am a Muslim.  Will the giver take from me?  He said no no no you just go there.  Then I came and within half an hour, six of your swayam sevaks came and they gave the blood and that operation was successful.  That is why I say my daughter carries RSS blood.  That is the character of the swayam sevaks who are charged with terror today. Where is Hindu terror?  Hinduism and terrorism cannot go together.  They are mutually exclusive statements.  Either you are a Hindu or a terrorist.  Because when you go to a remote village, go to the hut of an uneducated old woman, when she comes out in the morning to clean her backyard, listen to what she prays.  She says ganga maatha ki jai, gomaatha ki jai, tulsi maatha ki jai, lok kalyan ho.  Who taught her?  Which religion taught her that you should pray lok kalyan ho?  It is in the blood of Hindus.  Hindu can never be a terrorist.  But that does not give license to pseudo-intellectuals to declare that there is no religious terrorism in the world.  There are doctrines.”

He also called upon the audience to join this gigantic movement.  This is a movement for creating sheelawan society— society with great character, great sheel, which can uphold our dharma.”  Shri J Krishnan, President Air Cargo Association of India presided over the function.

The programme concluded with a render of appreciation by Sri M K R Mohanji, Vibhag Karyawah, Chennai.
