Saint Shri Morari Bapu to Visit Islands

Port Blair, Jan 25: His Holiness Saint Shri Morari Bapu will be visiting the Islands from 30th January 2020 to 7th February 2020  to  recite Ram Katha at Port Blair.  His Holiness Saint Shri Morari Bapu’s name is synonymous to Ram Charit Manas which he recites in the simplest form of words to be understood by any common person. Shri Bapu has been reciting Ram Katha for almost now 60 years. He refers to his Ram Katha as “Prem Yagna” where people gather in name of love. He expressly calls out to humanity for love and respect for each other.

In Bapu’s words, the summary of righteousness (dharma) is threefold; Truth(Satya), Love(Prem) and Compassion(Karuna). He refers life to the flow of the River Ganges (Ganga Pravah) – similar to how new water continuously replaces the current stream. Bapu believes in flowing traditions (pravahiparampara) that evolve with the times.

Ram Katha at Port Blair will be recited from 9.00 AM to  1.30 PM at Ramakrishna Mission (Lawn) on all days except  on 30th January, 2020 the programme starts at 4.00 PM and ends at 7.00 PM.

More than 1600 guests are expected from all over India and abroad. Daily Prashad and food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) will be provided at the Katha venue from 29th January, 2020 to 7th February, 2020.         We are expecting more than 2500 devotees will be attending the Katha daily, said Shri Girish Arora, President ACCI in a communication.

All arrangements for discoursing the Ram Katha by His Holiness Saint Shri Morari Bapu have been organized by one of the devotee Shri Arun Kumar Saraf.  

General public are requested to avail the opportunity and participate in the recitation of Ram Katha.
