Mumbai – To provide strength to the mission of establishing the Ramrajya (‘Hindu Rashtra’) and to awaken bravery among Hindus by the grace of Bhagawan Shriram, ‘Gadas’ (Maces) that Deities such as Shri Vishnu, Hanuman, etc. hold, were worshipped all over the country on Shri Hanuman Jayanti. This event was organised by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti and like-minded devout Hindu organisations at 218 places. The event was well-attended by Saints, office bearers of Hindu organisations and youth.

‘Gadapujan’ was organised in Mumbai and many Districts of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Goa, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Delhi. Collective praying, ‘Gadapujan’ ritual, Arati of Deity Maruti, recital of Maruti-Stotra and mass chanting of ‘Shri Hanumate Namaha’ were the main aspects of this Pujan. Guidance was also provided on how to inculcate the virtues of Deity Maruti so as to establish Dharma. At the end of the event, participants pledged to establish the ‘Hindu Rashtra’.

The objective of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti behind organising this event

The Hindus have a history of heroism. In the past 75 years, hardly have any events been organised to awaken bravery in Hindus. And, their future generations are being deprived of the virtue of bravery through messages such as ‘De di hame azadi bina khadga bina dhal …’. Every Hindu Deity has a hand that blesses, while other hands hold weapons. Hindus should worship every form of the Deity. From this perspective, worshipping the weapons of Deities will help in awakening bravery in Hindus. It takes courage to fight injustice and oppression. Therefore, at least some symbolic worship of weapons on religious festivals should be performed. Bravery should be awakened in Hindus. Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) stressed the need to cherish the tradition of worshipping arms during Hindu festivals.
