PATHANAMTHITTA: Swami Jayendra Saraswathi of Kanchi Kamakoti Peedom has called for setting up of schools at important  temples to impart knowledge on Hindu dharma and culture.

 Delivering the benedictory address at the centenary celebrations of Ayroor Hindumatha Parishath near Kozhenchery on Thursday,   Swami Jayendra Saraswathi said if basic facilities were given at temples,  the Kanchi Madom would undertake the task of educating the Hindu culture and Sanathana Dharma. The Kanchi seer called for broader unity among Hindus to ensure a fair share in  governance. Swami Jayendra Saraswathi said that various castes and sub-castes in Hindu religion should come under one umbrella organisation to achieve maximum benefits to the members. The seer recalled the contributions of Chattambi Swamigal and Sree Narayana Guru for the efforts of broader unity among Hindus and upliftment of the backward communities in the Hindu religion. The Kanchi Kamakodi Peedom head called on the Hindu organisations to work for the unity among the people in Hindu religion.

Swami Jayendra Saraswathi said the State Government to enact a piece of legislation banning conversion on the lines of the Tamil Nadu Government.

The seer said that  the Government,  declaring as a secular one, was indiscriminately giving bonanzas for the minority communities and denying even the rightful benefits to the majority community people.

Devaswom Minister V S Sivakumar inaugurated the Ayyappa devotees meet. Swami Sachidananda Saraswathi of Thodupuzha Vivekananda Yoga Ashramam presided over the function. District Collector P Venugopal and Balagokulam joint secretary D Narayana Sarma delivered discourses.
