‘Dharma’ means one’s ‘Constitution’ or the ‘Basic Nature’. ‘Sewa Parmoh Dharmah’ means ‘Service to humanity is a supreme Dharma’. The word ‘Dharma Nirapekshata’ means denying own’s nature and denying service to humanity, said Peethadhish of Devnath Peeth, Surji Anjangaon, Jitendranath Maharaj on Tuesday.


‘Dharma’, the constitution or the basic nature of fire, is to burn and to provide heat and light. If fire does not burn, if it does not provide heat and light, it cannot be called fire. Everything in nature has its own constitution; its own basic nature or Dharma. Earth’s Dharma or constitution is to hold everything down and provide support and stability while sky’s Dharma is vastness and limitlessness. Tree’s Dharma is to provide, and air’s constitutional Dharma is to sustain life. This means, every living and non-living thing in the universe has its own constitutional nature or Dharma, Maharaj added.


Jitendranath Maharaj was addressing as a chief guest of Ramabai Ranade Smruti Shikshan Prabodhan Prize Distribution Ceremony organised by Seva Sadan Education Society. Nagpur District Guardian Minister and Maharashtra Energy Minister, Chandrashekhar Bawankule presided over

Jitendranath Maharaj appreciated the humane work of Deendayal Bahuudeshiya Prasarak Mandal Yavatmal and said, the organisation is working on the principles of ‘Antyodaya’ of Deendayal Upadhyay and serving humanity by inculcating virtues and culture.
