New Delhi – University of Delhi’s Lakshmibai College has decided to set up a ‘Yajnashala’ to solve the increasing air pollution in the country’s capital Delhi. The college premises are developed on the lines of a village named Gokul. The work of the ‘Yajnashala’ is progressing fast.
While introducing this unique project, the Principal of the College, Pratyush Vatsala said,
- This ‘Yajnashala’ will commence its yajna/havans in the month of Chaitra (Lunar calendar). Yajnas will be done on various occasions for purifying the air.
- The holistic site of Gokul envisages a swing, a hut, a pond, a temple. It also has an Eco-Park, the first of its kind on the campus. The Eco-Park is the home for many ducks and rabbits. This environment will be conducive to connecting students and employees to village culture and to instil a sense of respect in their hearts for villages.
Education, culture and sanskars will be imparted to students here. Once they enter college, they will experience peace of mind forgetting their worries and tension.
- We are also planning to do yajna on the birthday of every student, which will also purify the environment.
