Mysuru, June 1:- “Power is not permanent. It comes today and goes tomorrow. But the good deeds we do will always be remembered by the people,” said Higher Education and Distict In-charge Minister GT Devegowda.
He was speaking at the 8th-day programme of the silver jubilee celebrations of Sri Krishna Dhama here on Saturday.
“Mysuru is the cultural capital of Karnataka. Sri Krishna Dhama is in the city for the last 25 years. Life is not permanent. If we lead our life with peace and devotion, then the purpose of life will be fulfilled. Seer Vishwesha Theertha Swamiji was in New Delhi during the oath taking of Narendra Modi government. He and seer Nirmalanandanatha Swamiji blessed the new government. I am hopeful that the country will receive good rains this year,” the minister said.
“It is very difficult to receive rains in Mysuru these days. The drinking water problem has already started. We have led enough fights in the last 5-10 years for drinking water. My aim is to provide a permanent drinking water solution for Mysuru. Many people think that Mysureans are close to river Cauvery and have no water scarcity. But no other city faces the drinking water problem like Mysuru,” he added.
“The silver jubilee event has been held in a meaningful manner. Siddaganga seer Shivakumara Swamiji was called Walking God. Vishwesha Theertha Swamiji is no less. He had gone to Delhi, then to Udupi and now he is here in Mysuru. May his blessings be upon us. I am told that the institution has not been given permission for PU College. I will get it done. Education is important for every child,” he added.
Vishwesha Theertha Swamiji delivered a special spiritual address on the occasion.
MLAs SA Ramadass, L Nagendra, Mayor Pushpalatha Jagannath, seer Vishwaprasanna, V Jayaram Bhat, P Jayaram Bhat and Ravi Shastry and others were present.
