True worship of God is serving humanity: Himachal governor

Panckula, Feb 23 (UNI) Himachal Pradesh Governor Acharya Dev Vrat on Saturday said God cannot be found in temples but within the heart of every human being and therefore true worship of God is by serving humans.

The two-days conference started with the address of the official Representative of the Rotary International President, Mr Haresh Ramchandani from Jamaica, who called upon the Rotarians to think big which can have much larger impact on the community.
Former world president of Rotary International Ian Riseley congratulated the Rotarians on 114th birth anniversary of Rotary which was founded in 1905 on February 23, and asked to uphold the basic core values of service, fellowship, diversity, integrity and leadership.
