Bhubaneswar:25/4/20: Covid-19 has posed an unseen and unforeseen crisis before the whole world. India under the ablest leadership of our Hon’ble Prime Minister has faced this challenge bravely. Government of Odisha has teamed up with almost everybody in the society to implement actions to face this crisis. Many players are performing magnificent roles in different spheres to contribute to different needs of the people during this time of need. Still, some critical voids are left which need attention.
Swami Dibyananda, the founder of Spiritual Academy which imparts Vedic education to young students and which brings a congregation of more than nine thousand shalagram to Bhubaneswar found out such critical voids. Swami Dibyanand and the devoted members of Spiritual Academy with the very cordial help of government authorities, district administration, police administration organised food for the inhabiting monkey families of a Sri Jagannath Temple in Bhubaneswar and destitute people of the city. This was later applauded profusely by the people of Puri and civil society members as a unique service by the Spiritual Academy to the people of Puri and to Lord Sri Jagannath. The members of Spiritual Academy were happy contributors to this great action.
Another important contribution of Spiritual Academy in recent days is feeding of about four hundred hungry destitute people from places outside Odisha camping near Bhubaneswar Railway Station. Some noble souls of Bhubaneswar informed Swami Dibyanand about a large number of hungry people camping near Bhubaneswar Railway Station. On the call of Swami Dibyanand, the members of Spiritual Academy organised the bare minimum resources needed to cook food and serve these people. Though it’s very difficult for the Spiritual Academy to organise the financial resources to feed a few hundred people every day for a period not predictable as of now, still the Spiritual Academy is trying to do its best. Swami Dibyanand insists on the members of the Spiritual Academy to follow the SOP prescribed by Government of Odisha while serving the people during such crisis.
Swami Dibyanand and the committed members of the Spiritual Academy have deep trust in Bhagwan Vishnu and they appeal that, if any interested people or social workers will come forward and support in arranging more funds, this will enable them to continue to serve those in need.
