Service to humanity

Vijay Maharaj, Sydney, Australia | Saturday, June 3, 2017

I also would like to join my friend Kositatino Tikomaibolatagane of Navua (F/T 01/06) to compliment Prashneel Goundar for his beautiful article with the above title in Tuesday's (30/05) The Fiji Times.

In fact I missed reading his previous article Journey after death, but managed to get a copy from Mr Goundar after I contacted him by email.

I believe both articles are superb and offer a lot to the general public.

It appears to me that Prashneel Goundar has a very deep knowledge of his religion and he tries to pass on the real message of 'deeds not words' to us.

The title itself suggests that besides our daily routine, we should find a bit of spare time whenever possible to render a bit of service to our community.

I was really pleased to see a group of youths cleaning the surroundings in the Nasinu area.

These volunteers were from the Sanatan group and likewise occasionally we read about people doing such valuable work by picking rubbish at Suva Point, Nasese sea walls and other surroundings.

Such citizens with civic pride should be commended and those responsible for polluting our environment should be ashamed of themselves.

All religions teach us good things, so please put into practice some of these valuable things we pick from such teachings.
