Agartala: June 01. Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha on Thursday said that an atmosphere of atheism seemed to prevail in the state, but now the people of the state are free from such beliefs and embracing a positive shift towards faith and spirituality.
Chief Minister Dr Saha today laid foundation stone for Sri Sri Radhamdanmohan Jiu Mandir conducted by Nikhil Tripura Sri Sri Haribhakti Pracharini Sabha at Grandeus Club in Agartala.
He said during a conversation with Prabhupada Nityananda Goswami Maharaj, it was revealed that the temple’s design incorporates a comprehensive plan, including the establishment of a dental hospital with various specialized doctors.
“There was an atmosphere of atheism seemed to prevail in the state, but now the people of the state are free from such beliefs and embracing a positive shift towards faith and spirituality. In the past, our busy schedules often prevented us from entering the temple regularly. However, now that we have the opportunity to visit, the experience is bound to be transformative. The sacred mantras and spiritual teachings within the temple have the power to uplift our minds and instill a sense of positivity. It is essential for individuals to not only focus on physical development but also nurture their intellectual and spiritual growth, as these aspects contribute to becoming well-rounded human beings”, said Dr Saha.
The CM further said that in Tripura, like in other parts of the Northeast, people are witnessing numerous challenges associated with substance abuse.
“As responsible guardians, we should not take for granted that our children are attending school and college in a proper manner. Instead, we must actively monitor their activities, the company they keep, and guide them towards listening to the enlightening mantras and spiritual discourses imparted within the temple. By embracing the teachings of holy men and women, the younger generation can avoid many pitfalls that lie ahead, ensuring a harmonious and prosperous future”, said Dr Saha.
