Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama arrived at Trimbakteshwar on Sunday, a day after the first shahi snan (holy dip) to meet with religious heads who have gathered for the ongoing Kumbh. He also visited the Karshni Ashram at Trimbakteshwar.


“It is due to these democratic values that people belonging to different religions and caste live in peace and harmony. Hence, India,as compared to its neighbours,is in such state of peace” said the Dalai Lama while addressing the media and mahants.

He further said, “I look at India as a land of ‘sarvadharmasambhav’ (an equal regard for all religions or secularism), where people of all religions and caste are safe and are progressing. And so I feel there is an urgent need for heads of all religions must come together and work towards spreading the message of peace and harmony.”

With Guru Sharananand, Swami Parmanand and Swami Gyananand, Dalai Lama also planted a sapling after reaching the Karshani Ashram. He said he was in the town to meet the various mahants of Akharas in order to discuss the issue of peace and how to spread it across the world.

In fact, this symbol is considered very significant in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. But, at the same time, it has become one of the most misunderstood religious symbols and has been globally banned in many countries.

The reason why the symbol of Swastika is banned in many countries is because of its association with Adolf Hitler's extreme political ideology, Nazism, as Swastika as its official symbol.

Neeraj Chopra was born on December 24, 1997, in Khandra village in Haryana's Panipat district. He grew up in a Haryanavi family of farmers. He is the brother of two sisters. He graduated from Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College in Chandigarh and is now enrolled in Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, Punjab, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree. Chopra was bullied due to his obesity as a kid, which prompted his father to enroll him in a nearby gym. He then joined a gym in Panipat, where Jaiveer Choudhary, a javelin thrower, noticed his potential and coached him. When the 13-year-old Chopra finished training under Jaiveer for a year, he was enrolled at the Tau Devi Lal Sports Complex in Panchkula, where he began training under coach Naseem Ahmed.
