Spirituality is the greatest contribution from India to the world, said Governor, Shri P S Sreedharan Pillai. In democratic system Government is everything, but Dharma was the supreme and no one was superior then dharma, was our country’s original concept he said. If dharma is there, there is no need for a king – this is a real concept. Dharma is superior – meaning people are superior. Dharma is still supreme if we respect it properly, he added.
He was speaking after inaugurating second day of three days satsang programme jointly organised by Akhil Gomantak Sri Siddharudh Sampraday Pratishthan, Goa Prem Bhakti Sadhana Kendra and Shri Hari Mandir Devsathan at Pajifond Margao, yesterday.

Spiritual leaders are the real asset of our country. Spiritual leaders are the representatives of dharma and they have dedicated their life to maintain dharma in the country. Siddharudh Pratishthan promotes spirituality and equality among the mass community, he remarked.
Governor said, we all are servants of the people. When one decides to be a public servant then that person is bound to serve the people and they are the servants of the people.
