Suttur, August 2, 2019: The Raghavanka Virachita ‘Harishchandra Kavya’ discourse program that is held every year during Shravanamaasa, was launched at the Jagadguru Sri Veerasimhasana Mahasamsthana Math.
Sri M. Mahanteshappa, Joint Director, Agriculture Department inaugurated the program and expressed his view that the Shravanamaasa is the season of progress. “But, due to the continuous attack on nature by man, nature appears to be angry. As a result, we are not witnessing rains even during this season,” he expressed his anguish.
Ni.Pra.Swa.Sri Appaji Swamiji of the Sri Basavajyothi Math, Dindagaadu, Periyapatna Taluk presided over the program. “The Shraavanamaasa is the beginning of the festival season. The Suttur Srimath has been providing spiritual knowledge by conducting discourses every year throughout this auspicious season, which is appreciable” he added.
Chief guest Sri H.M. Nagaraju, Joint Director, Horticulture Department, Mysuru, in his address said, “We shouldn’t postpone good works. If we keep postponing good works our entire lifespan will end. It is better to make firm decisions about anything instead of keeping thinking about the past or the future.”
