State has become a centre for spirituality: Telangana CM KCR
HYDERABAD: Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao has said Telangana state has become a centre for spirituality with the revival of temples and spiritual and religious programmes across the state.
Chairing a review meeting at Pragathi Bhavan on Saturday on preparations for the inauguration of the Telangana Brahmin Sadan on May 31 at Gopanpally, he said priests and Vedic scholars are migrating from other states to Telangana for employment. “As with other communities, today Telangana state has become a centre of employment for Brahmins,” he said.
He said the first ‘Brahmin Sadan’ built by Telangana state government in the country will stand as an ideal spiritual and religious information center, and a guiding force for the country.
He said it was the society’s responsibility to protect Vedic purohits engaged in divine service and for the well-being of the world, and it was this philosophy that is driving the many welfare schemes for Brahmins in Telangana state. Information related to spiritual literature and rituals should be collected from all over the country and preserved in book and digital formats and should be made available to all at the Brahmin Sadan, he added.
He also said that more welfare schemes in addition to the one already being implemented need to be planned for the Brahmin community in the state.
The meeting was attended among others by president of Telangana Brahmin Welfare Parishad Dr K.V. Ramanachari, vice-president Vanam Jwala Narasimha Rao, and members Dr Samudrala Venugopalachari, Captain Lakshmi Kanta Rao, V. Mrityunjaya Sharma, Puranam Satish, M. Venkata Ramana Sharma, Borpatla Hanumanta Chari, Ashtakala Rammohan, Bhadrakali Seshu, Sumalatha Sharma, Suvarna Sulochana, Joshi Gopala Sharma, along with the Parishad’s member secretary V. Anil Kumar, and administrator Raghurama Sharma.
