Shankarajayanti celebration 2019
Unlike other religious program Shankarajayanti program had a very clear objective. It was for praying for Unity and strength of the nation and for a Peaceful Kashmir.
India cannot be strong as long as Kashmir is not peaceful. Kashmir can become peaceful again only if the ignorance is removed and knowledge is restored among the youth there. Due to this ignorance, few local youth have either got involved in terrorism directly or indirectly. Due to this, there is violence and loss of human life the state.
Kashmir was the land of sages and Saints, it got its name from Kashyapa muni. Adi guru Shankaracharya came and meditated here . Famous saint Abhinavgupta was from here. There were many sages who were from here and who came here in search of knowledge. This land of knowledge and spiritualism was very peaceful, but today it is disturbed a lot today due to ignorance.
Adi guru Shankaracharya had travelled throughout bharat several centuries back and had established 4 mutt in four corners of the country and spread knowledge and wisdom throughout. on the day of Adi guru Shankaracharya jayanti the greatest way to remember and follow his teachings was by praying for a Strong India and a peaceful Kashmir.
The belief in Sanathana dharma is, whenever there is disturbance in the society god send a divine person to clear the ignorance and restore the social order. It is the prayers of several people which materialises into an avatar. By the prayers of several people at Shankaracharya hill an avatar may come to Kashmir or some person may get enlightened and may lead all the other people to the right path of peace .
Swami Vishwatmanand Saraswati ji Maharaj from Sunderbani Ashram in Rajouri district J&K came to Shankaracharya hill and offered his prayers along with several saints from across the country and along with his disciples. Kanchi Mutt carried out Vedic chants.
Saha sara karyavah Shri Suresh Soniji, Akhil Bharatiya Sah Sampark Pramukh Shri Arun Kumar ji and Shri Jaidev ji from Sewa bharati Jammu visited the temple and offered their prayers for the nation.

A Langar/ Bhandar(food distribution) was arranged for all yatris who visited the temple. Around 2000 people visited the temple. The number had come down this year due to disturbed situation in Srinagar. Kashmiri hindus from distant parts of the nation and Hindus staying in different parts of J&K also came to the program as it gave them an opportunity to cherish their past memories of a vibrant festive Kashmir.
