Gangtok, Aug 23
Governor of Sikkim Ganga Prasad has extended warm greetings to the people of Sikkim on the auspicious occasion of Janmashtami.
“Janmashtami, the annual pious occasion to commemorate the birth of Bhagwan Krishna, the incarnation of Lord Vishnu, brings with it hope and festivity for the Hindus worldwide. It epitomises the virtue of truth and love and shows the significance of Dharma and Karma in our life as humans. The Bhagwadgita, explains us the core philosophy of Karma which all humans are bound to perform and shows us the way to lead an ideal life as human. Bhagwan Krishna, through Bhagwadgita and various other sacred texts, continue to guide us towards the selfless act of service to mankind as the service to god and has enriched our civilisation with human values and virtues.
Let us all endeavour to make Janmashtami, as the festival of love and mutual respect among fellow beings. May Bhagwan Krishna’s life and teachings further enrich our lives as we work together for peace and greater good of mankind,” Governor has said.
