Mr. Pravin Sharma appreciates the Sanatan ashram
Ramnathi (Goa) – Before performing any mission understanding the underlying science is essential. That science is taught here. In fact this ashram gives absolute Dharmashikshan. It teaches how to perform every action to perfection is what the priest from Kumbhakonam (Tamilnadu) especially appreciated. Based on the advice of Shri Vidyachaudeshwari, to receive blessings for establishing a Hindu nation and for the welfare of the people a Shatachandi yag was organised in the Sanatan ashram here from February 24 to 28, 2020. The chief priest presiding this ritual was Mr. Pravin Sharma from Kumbhakonam (Tamilnadu). On February 25, 2020 as a lady seeker from Sanatan Sanstha Mrs. Saumya Kudarvalli explained various missions pertaining to the nation and Dharma being carried out in the ashram, Mr. Sharma expressed appreciation. Other priests from Karnataka and Tamilnadu accompanying him learnt about the religious activities being carried out in the ashram with enthusiasm. Priests Mr. Chetan, Krishna S.Bhat, Satish, Yogesh, Kartikeya, Satish Sharma, Yogesh Sastry, Dheeraj J, Kartik D. Bhat, Chetan Sharma, Kartik Sastry, Subramanya Bhat, Krishna Bhat and Raghvendra performed the rite of Shatachandi.
Mr. Pravin Sharma praises the Sanatan ashram
As we were living in the ashram we felt as if we were in satsang. In the ashram we learnt why man was created by God. I perceived a lot of positive energy in the ashram. Seekers in the ashram are very humble and in a state of happiness. To summarise the environment in the ashram is beyond verbal expression.
