HJS expresses grief over demise of Shankaracharya Jayendra Sarswati

Panaji, Feb 28 (UNI) Hindu Janajagri Samiti (HJS) on Wednesday expressed grief over the demise of Kanchi Shankaracharya Jayendra Sarswati and said the HJS has been permanently deprived of his love and blessings.
In a statement here, Ramesh Shinde, National Spokesperson, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, said,''Shankaracharya travelled across the length and breadth of the country for the upliftment of the Hindu society. He toiled endlessly to propagate and work towards recitation of Vedas, cow protection, donation of food, and old-age homes. With his regular counselling with regards to righteousness, He continually guided the Hindu society. Thus the Hindu society is indebted to Him and it is plain impossible to repay these favours.''
''Jagadguru Shankaracharya Shree Jayendra Saraswati had immense love towards Hindu Janajagruti Samiti and its works. In 2003, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti had organised Hindu Dharmjagruti Sabha (Hindu Awareness Public Meet) on the occasion of completion of 50 years of the ascension of the Acharya to the Peetham, for which Shree Shankaracharya was present. Be it protests against Anti-Superstition and Black Magic Act, or nationalisation of temples, Shree Shankaracharya constantly supported such initiatives of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti. Every year he used to convey His blessings through a message for the annual ‘All India National Hindu Convention’, organised by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti for the establishment of Hindu Rashtra,'' he said.
Mr Shinde said Shree Shankaracharya was instrumental in the airing of the series, ‘Dharmik Krutyonka Shastra’, on one of the most popular TV channels of the South, ‘Shree Shankara’.
