Mysuru: Seers, saints always work for welfare of society: PM Narendra Modi

Mysuru(PTI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said work of saints, seers and rishis had always been for the welfare of society.

The seers and saints do not tomtom about their efforts as they feel it was part of their duty to work for the welfare of the society, he said during his visit to Avadhoota Datta Peetham, an ashram founded by Sree Ganapati Sachchidananda Swamiji, here.


“I have come here for first time but I know of the traditions here well”, said Modi, who is on a two-day visit to Karnataka.

The Prime Minister is scheduled to inaugurate the annual Indian Science Congress here tomorrow as part of his engagements. “Here (at the Peetham), social work has been given a big impetus. Work of saints, seers, rishis has always been for the welfare of society,” Modi, who also inaugurated a hospital of the Peetham, said.

The Swamiji, who works for popularisation of “Raagaragini Vidya”, an ancient musical tradition that is claimed to augment spiritual Sadhana and cure ailments, has set up the branches of his ashram in several countries. The seer, who conducts worldwide tours and holds concerts believed to provide healing benefits, is also implementing welfare projects across the country.
