His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, visits Ramanreti Dham as part of 2 day spiritual tour of Mathura and Vrindavan
The Dalai Lama, who was on a two day spiritual tour of Mathura and Vrindavan, was welcomed grandly at Ramanreti Dham Ashram on 23rd September, 9:30 in the morning. The resident elephant of the Ashram put a garland around his neck and he admired the decorations that had been done using beautiful and fresh flowers like roses, marigolds, jasmines and lotuses. Niira Radia and Arpit Garg, the chairpersons of Mathura’s Nayati Hospital, were there to welcome him personally.
The traditional ‘Charan Puja’ was conducted while he was seated on a silver chair and then Karshni Guru Shri Sharnanandaji Maharaj came out of the Ashram especially to greet him and take him around. Next, the Dalai Lama also visited the Ramanabihari Temple, where vedic pathis recited vedic mantras for peace and auspiciousness. Addressing a group of students after this, he told them that India is known for two things, sanskriti and Sanskrit, and that it is up to them to make sure that the best of this heritage is never forgotten.
His message to everyone in general was that they should all focus on inculcating the right values in their children and in themselves. For only in this manner can the people of India become harbingers of peace and tranquility in these troubled times. On the morning of the 24th, he took part in the abhishek and homam performed in the Ramneshwar Mahadev Temple. Later in the day he took part in tree plantation activities and also met with prominent saints.
