SRINAGAR, AUG 30: The Deputy Chief Minister, Dr Nirmal Singh today said that teachings of seers and saints preaching mutual brotherhood and coexistence are more relevant in today’s context where material pursuits are overtaking the spiritual pursuits.
The Deputy Chief Minister was speaking at a function organized in connection with 523rd birth anniversary of Acharya Shri Chander Ji organized by the management of Shri Chander Chinar Bada Akhara Udasin Trust (SCCBAUT), Residency Road here today.
Dr Singh said that seers and saints have given us the requisite parameters for leading a life full of spirituality. He said that onus lies on us to follow the same and also propagate it among youth.
While referring to the State as an abode of mutual coexistence and communal harmony, the Deputy Chief Minister said this part of the sub-continent has throughout the ages been an epitome of spiritualism and coexistence and the teachings of J&K’s seers have a universal appeal and acceptance. He said several philosophers and statesman have also referred to Jammu and Kashmir as a model of tolerance, peace and syncretism.
The Deputy Chief Minister also paid obeisance at the shrine and prayed for peace and prosperity of the State.
