Hindu Aikyavedi appreciates initiative

GURUVAYUR: The Hindu Aikyavedi appreciated the intiative taken by the Guruvayur Devaswom managing committee to hold talks with various Hindu organisations, spiritual, vedic and thantric acharyas to evolve a consensus on certain reforms to be implemented at temple.

The Devaswom by inviting leaders of Hindu organisations had accepted that the issues related to the temple had to be resolved only through dialogues with the Hindu community, said Kummanam Rajasekharan while addressing the media after his two-hour long talks with the Guruvayur Devaswom managing committee on Friday.

‘‘The secular government cannot impose any law on reformation at any place of worship and it is better for the government to keep away from such issues to avoid controversies and should allow the autonomy to the devaswom panel for implementing reforms at the temple through consensus,’’ he said.

The issues related to the temples are the matters of the Hindu community and the vedic, thantric and spirual acharyas and leaders of various Hindu organisations will sort out the issue within a span of two months, Kummanam added.

The temple thantri has the final word on rituals and poojas performed at the temple which are based on thantra Samuchayam, but the changes of certain practices followed at the temple have to be implemented by the Devaswom which has the final word in the social aspects of the temple, Rajasekharan said.

Devaswom chairman Thottathil Raveendran, temple thantri Chennas Raman Namboothiripad, Zamorin P K S Raja, Ooralan Mallissery Parameswaran Namboothiripad, members Gokulam Gopalan, T R Harry, M Vasudevan, and administrator V Ratheesan and deputy administrator Vijayan Nambiar held talks with the Hindu Aikyavedi delegation.
