On the auspicious occasion of Ram Navami, Hon’ble Governor of Sikkim, Shri Shriniwas Patil and the First Lady Smt. Rajanidevi Patil extend warm greetings and best wishes to the people of Sikkim.
Hon’ble Governor said: “the auspicious Ramnavami, the day of the birth of ‘Maryada Purosottam Rama’ is regarded as the most important day in Hindu tradition. Our scriptures have taught us that on this day the era of Dharma, the righteous way of living in harmony with all sentient beings, began.
The ninth day of Chaitra Navaratra, the day also remind all of us of Sri Rama’s life and deeds that epitomises the idea of selfless service to mankind. ‘Manav Seva Madhav Seva’ and duty over self that Lord Rama lived by example, always show us the right path in our quest towards collective good of society.
On this propitious day, let us all pledge to work selflessly for the common good of society and mankind. May Lord Rama’s blessings give us strength and vision to see beyond social barriers and inspire us to serve all irrespective of caste, creed, gender and religion.”
