Mysuru, September 14, 2022: “Indians have the mindset of helping others without expecting anything in return,” observed His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Mahaswamiji, of Sri Suttur Math.
He participated in the Satsang program organized by the Basava International Corporation, held in New York, USA on September 11.
In his blessings, His Holiness observed, “Basaveshwara was one of the excellent saints of the world. It is appreciable that the world remembers him continuously. Everyone likes to be happy always. India is a country that is spiritually and culturally rich. Our rishis and saints and visionaries enriched them. We have to pass on this knowledge to the next generation. It is indeed happy to see though people have migrated to a foreign land, they have continued to love their culture and heritage and are striving to further develop it. God has gifted us the strength to think. We should use it and try to solve all the problems in our lives. We face several confusions in our lives. We should balance them and continue our journey. Nijaguna Shivayogi taught us to balance both worldly and spiritual aspects and lead our lives. Shankaracharya taught us whatever work we do we should consider it a service to god. Only then our service will be called selfless.”
