“To have faith in the Vedas and to accept the injunctions of the Veda is being regarded by the modern youth as outmoded and uncivilised. Young people today are not making an enquiry as to what is contained in the Vedas or in the Sastras (scriptures). They go further and say that those people who have faith in the Vedas and the Sastras are only having blind faith. If one argues, after acquainting oneself with the contents of what one is arguing about, one can argue for any length of time, but if a person is arguing without knowing the contents, it is not possible to have an argument. Our Vedas have been teaching us several aspects of Satyam or truth, of Jnanam or wisdom, and of Ananta or infinity. We should ask ourselves whether the people who describe truth as truth and knowledge as knowledge are foolish, or the people who describe truth as untruth and knowledge as ignorance are foolish..”
LAASA salutes its volunteer Durgarao Aika who has explained the meaning and the inner essence of all the vedas by identifying needy people – Sadhu Jawaharlal Nehru (38) and family, residents of Ambativanipeta, Srikakulam. Mr. Nehru who is the sole bread winner of the family has met with a fire accident suffered 2nd degree burns and undergone spinal surgery. The family is not even able to get their daily bread. LAASA has committed to extend hand by providing the necessary Food & Nutrition (Including 100 Day Food Programme) that would help them to provide food for 100 days.
The basic essence of all the Vedas is to serve the needful with purity at heart with unity. As always LAASA is to Love all and Serve All to infinity and beyond.
