By performing a yadnya (fire sacrifice) for a day for upto a month an area of 100 yards around it is protected from pollution –  Space scientist  Dr. Om Prakash Pandey    

On February 22, 2019 when addressing the national conference on ‘Environmental Protection and Bharatiya tradition of learning’ space scientist and scientific advisor to former Prime Minister of Bharat, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Dr. Om Prakash Pandey put forth his thoughts.

The coloured Ganapati idol created by Sanatan Sanstha based on spiritual science proved to be spiritually more beneficial to the devotee than the Ganapati Idols made from paper mache or the ordinary Ganesh Idols made from clay

The paper mache Ganesh idol is not only spiritually detrimental, its use also is harmful, has been proven by P.I.P. and U.T.S. experiments. Research also proves that such idols are deleterious to the environment.
