 JORHAT, Dec 3 – Stressing the importance of moral education in shaping the personality of new generation youths, Satradhikar of Auniati Satra Dr Pitambar Dev Goswami said here today that practice of Vedic teaching on food habits and human behaviour play significant role in making a trouble-free society.

 Delivering the fourth biennial Dhirendra Nath Sarma memorial lecture on ‘Our Society, Culture, Tradition and Young Generation’ at the Baligaon Sanmilani Natya Mandir in Jorhat, the Satradhikar narrated the benefits of selected foods as prescribed by the holy Gita which influenced generations across the globe.

If anyone loves reading, as Dhirendra Nath Sarma did, then that person will not have an iota of negative thoughts on anything, he said.

Despite coming from a poor family, Sarma inspired several youths of greater Baligaon area in Jorhat as he himself achieved exemplary success in life and career.

As the age-old unity and brotherhood seems to be diminishing even in the rural societies, Dr Goswami urged people not to undermine their traditional lifestyle in daily activities as it is enriched with cultural and traditional ideologies followed by earlier generations.

“Vast differences are apparent between our own and the Western culture. We should only adopt their good habits which can enrich us. Our own traditions and customs suit us more to contribute immensely for the common good ,” Dr Dev Goswami added.
