UDUPI: Lord Krishna was a historic personality. His message of selfless work had inspired great personalities like Swamy Vivekananda and Gandhiji, said noted historian Dr Sooryanath Kamath.
Kamath was delivering a guest lecture on ‘Srikrishna Aithihasikathe’ at Rajangana of Srikrishna Temple on the occasion of honouring special achievers for their remarkable contribution to society.
Kamath said: ‘‘It has been proved that the Mahabharatha wasr occurred only after the Vedic period.
Even the fortnight of 13 days, which began and ended with the eclipses, mentioned in the epic was also proved’’.
In his message Paryaya Adamaru Mutt junior pontiff Sri Vishwapriya Theertha Swamiji said the relationship between God and a devotee was that of a doctor and a patient.
One need to trust God first before expecting anything from God. One who guided somebody on a right path is God, he added.
Swamiji also called upon people to utilise their intelligence in their duties.
On the occasion Swamiji honoured noted astrologer Vedamoorthy Madhwaraya Bhat Belman, renowned historian Dr Sooryanath Kamath, botanist Dr K G Bhat, retired surgeon of District Hospital, Udupi, Dr U M Vaidya, ‘Naati Vaidya’ from Shirva Naranga Poojary, Ayurvedic Pandit from Haleyangadi Hari Bhat, ‘Nagaswara’ artist Obu Sherigar and Srimad Bharatha Mandali (organisation) of Geetha Mandir, Hejamadi. B Krishna Bhat were the chief guests.
