Ajmer attracts Aryas

  • tags: no_tag

    • A doubting Thomas asked me what about the Arya Samajis who go to Ajmer to bow before the Samadhi of Dayanand Saraswati? Well, there is no Samadhi of Swami Dayanand and no worship is organised for the departed Swami as it would be against the tenets of the Vedic Dharm. A far sighted seer that Dayanand Saraswati was , he had given specific instructions that no memorial or Samadhi would be built over his ashes. The ashes would be strewn into fields or orchards and not immersed into a river to abjure pollution.

      He paid particular attention to ecology and did nothing to damage the ecological balance. Thus the question of promoting pooja of a dead man or performing a mritak shraddha are absolutely forbidden.
