Vice President Ram Sahaya Prasad Yadav has said that the religious activities have provided the motivation to mankind to have positive thinking and move on the right path.

Inaugurating the religious program - Sitaram Nam Sankritan Mahayagya Ek Saya Aath Kunja Ebam Nau Diwasiya Shree Bishnu Mahayagya – that commenced on the local Sugar Mill premises at Pipara, Birgunj Metropolitan City-14 from today, Vice President Yadav viewed that religious rituals as mahayagya and land worship sacraments, among others, have been encouraging to maintain goodwill among humans and guiding them on the right path.

Expressing the belief that such religious rituals would contribute towards fostering peace and fraternity when disturbance is increasing in the society due to mutual discord and misunderstanding, he wished that may the Mahayagya promote peace and mutual unity.

Minister for Industry, Commerce and Supplies Ramesh Rijal said religion encouraged people to adopt the path of truth and compassion. He added that the contribution of the religious preachers is important in protecting religion.

On the occasion, Vice President Yadav honoured various personalities for their support in making the Mahayagya successful.

The Mahayagya will run for nine days. Senior narrator Sadhawi Laxmi Mata and other speakers will conduct the Mahayagya.

It is estimated that 1 million devotees will participate in the Mahayagya, said Ram Prabesh Prasad Kurmi, the coordinator of the Mahayagya Management Committee.

Various religious and cultural programs will be held as part of the Mahayagya.
