By Our Staff Reporter
Dehradun, 22 Jun: Chief Minister, Pushkar Singh Dhami, inaugurated the Ved Shastra Research Centre in the memory of Swami Karpatri Maharaj at Raghunath Kirti campus of Central Sanskrit University, Devprayag through virtual medium from the Secretariat here today. Addressing the programme on a virtual mode, Chief Minister Dhami said that it is a proud achievement for Devbhoomi that Raghunath Kirti Campus has become a big name in the field of Sanskrit in a short span of time. This complex is a great gift of the Central Government to Uttarakhand. Such universities are important for the promotion and dissemination of Sanskrit which is the language of the deities. Dhami expressed hope that the students studying here will become as determined  as Swami Karpatri Maharaj. The youth need to take inspiration from Swami Karpatri Maharaj in respect of sacrifice, determination and protection of religion.
The Chief Minister said that the government wants that the spiritual land of Uttarakhand, famous in the field of ancient knowledge, should regain its glory and our culture and that Sanskrit should be propagated. For this, the university is not only an important heritage of the state but for the whole country. Earlier, the children of hill areas of Uttarakhand had to go to cities like Varanasi, Jaipur, Kerala, Haridwar, etc., to get higher education in Sanskrit, due to which they had to spend lots of  time and money. With the opening of this complex, this problem has gone forever. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has a special focus on this complex. The Prime Minister’s Office continuously monitors the construction and development works of this complex. This campus, Dhami asserted is one big example of Prime Minister Modi’s love for Sanskrit and Uttarakhand.
Pushkar Singh Dhami said that it is the endeavour of the state government to provide employment through Sanskrit. Uttarakhand is the land of Gods as well as the land of Vedas. India gave the knowledge of Vedas all over the world, that is why India is termed as Vishwaguru. Vedas are the identity of India. However in order to be able to maintain this identity, it is necessary to ensure that Sanskrit is promoted and spread throughout India. Sanskrit needs to be included in the education of Uttarakhand. Sanskrit can be protected and propagated only when it is linked with employment. Dhami said that with the knowledge of Sanskrit only, one can deeply know India’s culture and that only a person who loves and adopts his culture can progress in life. The government will continue to work continuously with “Vikalp Nirhit Sankalp” for the promotion and dissemination of Sanskrit and the culture of Uttarakhand.
On this occasion, MLA Vinod Kandari, Swami Abhishek Brahmachari, National Coordinator of Yuva Chetna Rohit Kumar Singh, Vice Chancellor of Central Sanskrit University Prof Srinivasa Varakhedi and Director of Complex Dr PVB Subrahmanyam and other dignitaries were present.
