Yogi calls for protection of religious places, properties in UP

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Gorakshpeethadhishwar Yogi Adityanath on Monday appealed to people to protect religious places as well as public and private properties.

Speaking at the end of the week-long Shri Shiv Mahapuran Katha organized at Mansarovar Temple in Andhiyari Bagh in collaboration with Gorakhnath Temple, Yogi Adityanath said, ‘The Mansarovar temple was completely dilapidated ten to 12 years ago. However, when social consciousness was awakened, the devotees of Gorakhpur took up the task of preserving it and the temple was renovated.’

“Devotees from north to south and east to west have been receiving supernatural blessings from the twelve Jyotirlingas since time immemorial. Our saints have taught us to see Lord Shiva even in pebbles and stones. Worshiping Lord Shiva inspires us to work for the welfare of ourselves as well as others.’

According to the Chief Minister, it is a matter of good fortune to enjoy the story of Lord Shiva in the Shukla Paksha of the holy month of Shravan.

He said, from Kailash to Rameswaram in Greater India, from Vaidyanath Dham in the east to Somnath Dham in the west, the holy places of Lord Bholenath have been centers of awakening of spiritual and cultural unity since ancient times.

The Chief Minister also cited the Kanwar Yatra during Sawan as a classic example of cultural and social unity, which brings together youth, women and men from all walks of life to perform Jalabhishek of Mahadev as an expression of divine devotion.

After doing Rudrabhishek of Mahadev, he worshiped all the deities and prayed for the welfare of the people.
