The “Save Temples Of Tamil Nadu” movement called by Sadguru Jaggi Vasudev now turned to be a nation-wide movement as it began spreading like wind and turned to be “Save Temples In India”. Celebrities like Superstar Rajnikanth also showed their support. Even in the Telugu Speaking States, the support for this movement is immense.
Recently, Telugu Philosopher and Former Tollywood Lyricist Sama Vedam Shanmukha Sharma responded to Sadhguru’s call. He said that Temple of Ancient India being under The government are purely neglected while that funds that come through them go to the government itself while places of worship related to other cultures doesn’t have to send their income to the government. India, being the secular nation, this clear partiality exists towards the Temple of Ancient India.
Mr Samavedam also emphasised that people who’re being employed at the temples, however, are few, they have adequate knowledge about neither the history nor the culture and tradition of this nation, which results in direct neglect of the temples.
He also felt happy about Sadhguru’s call and wished this could spread across India even further and urged Telugu people to respond to Sadhguru’s call. Even temples in Andhrapradesh and Telangana need to be freed from the Governmental clasp and should be handed over to devotees, Mathas and Peethas.
