Sages Start House to House Campaign

As part of the movement against the proposed airport project at Aranmula the various ashrams across Kerala have come forward to take the responsibility of protecting the Dharma. Sages from various Ashrams, Sampradayas  and from different parts of the state have converged at Aranmula for the three day house visit and Upavasa Prarthana. The three day program starting from 16 April 2013 shall see a major congregation of Saints and devotees taking part in the Upavasa Nama Japa Yagnam on the 18 of April 2013 at the Sree Parthasarathy Temple at Aranumla. The teams of Sages with Acharyas, and volunteers have started visiting each house in the region. Initially ten Panchayats are being covered where the Sanyasis meet and interact with the householders. They are also organizing neighborhood meetings, family get togethers, and providing basic spiritual guidance.  

This is for the first time that the Sanyasis of the various Sampradayas and Ashrams have come together and are going to the householders and this shall in time spread all over the state, said Kummanam Rajasekharan, Patron the Paithruka Grama Karma Samithy.  Aranmula shall be the spring board of a Hindu awakening across Kerala and this movement shall be spreading all over Kerala, added the Saints taking part in the movement. The fight to protect the survival systems is primary and we have to take the responsibility of protecting beliefs and the culture that kept the nature healthy for generations.

The community is thrilled about the Sanyasis coming to their houses and a rich welcome is being given across the villages. This should have been happening much before, said Appukuttan, a resident of Naranganam. Alien models and vested interests cannot be allowed to erode the foundations of this land, said an Acharya in the team. Each one has a duty here. This sacred place cannot be allowed to be subjected to vandalism by any evil forces. They called on the various Ashrams and Saints to join the movement and also the devotees to attend the event in large numbers.
