Bapu Inaugurates GIWA’s Swachha Kranti Campaign
Pujya Morari bapu , Pujya Achrya Sri Pundrik Goswami and Pujya Radha Krishnaji of Jodhpur,were so inspired by Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswati great dedication and leadership towards sanitation for all and environmental preservation that they specially visited the Global Interfaith WASH Alliance (GIWA)-Parmarth Niketan camp today.
They were deeply touched by how the entire camp was dedicated to the environment, utilizing jute and eco-friendly fabric, as much as possible, for its earthy and elegant decorations. During their visit they learned about the different interventions and activities planned by the GIWA volunteers who had come in from all around the world and all across India to serve in the campaign.
They took part in a beautiful lamp lighting ceremony to inaugurate the first educational centres and activities that the volunteers would be doing for the duration of the Simhastha Kumbha Mela to make people aware about the harms of open defecation and the need to build and use toilets.
They also performed a special water blessing ceremony, offering the holy waters of the River Kshipra, as a symbol of our collective pledge in a Green Kumbha Mela to take simple actions in our every day lives to live green, to protect our sacred rivers and our planet Earth.
