Thousands of devotees gathered on both the sides of the sacred River Kshipra, at Datt Ghat and Ram Ghat to seek blessings from the divine mother.
During the Aarti a mass pledge was led by the Hon’ble Chief Minister of MP to keep the River Kshipra clean and green as everyone raised hands with the echoes of Jai Maa Kshipra and Jai Mahakaal.
Pujya Acharya MM Swami Avdheshanandji said, “We cannot save our rivers and other water resources unless we take a pledge to increase our awareness towards the creation of a Clean & Green environment.”
Pujya Morari Bapuji shared, “This is not just a Kshipra Aarti but the Param (ultimate) Aarti. The greatest form of worship and reverence as it bring all ghats together and everyone together to pledge and serve Maa Kshipra.”
Pujya Swamiji inspired all to ensure that during their pilgrimage to the sacred festival they would never pollute the sacred waters or the sacred land by open defecation, rather would be sure to use a toilet instead, and that no waste and garbage of any kind would pollute the river. He said by keeping the river in its natural state, pristine and free-flowing, we are doing the true Aarti or the true pooja. He also encouraged everyone to plant at least one tree in the memory of their green pilgrimage.
