Pune, 6th May (News) – Temples have a great significance in Hindu Dharma. Saints have stated that ‘Temples are the source of energy for Hindus.’ Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj too had made provisions for ensuring security of the temples, their renovation and performing rituals and rites regularly in the temples. However today, due to lack of education on Dharma, the temples are being ignored. With the objective of awakening spiritual emotion towards temples in Hindus and generating a sense of gratitude towards Deities, temple cleanliness campaign was organized at various places within Pune city on the occasion of Paratpar Guru Dr. Athavale’s birthday celebrations. There is overwhelming participation of readers of Sanatan Prabhat, devout Hindus and those having pride in Hindu Dharma, in this campaign.
