DIMAPUR — Nagaland Governor La. Ganesan has called upon every citizen to uphold the principles of unity and inclusivity and to foster an environment where all can thrive and flourish.

The governor said that everyone must work hand in hand to create a society that is defined not by divisions but by collective efforts to “create a better world for ourselves and for future generations.”

Ganesan was addressing a gathering after inaugurating the Kirtan Bhawan at Shree Shree Vindhya Basini Mandir, Medziphema, on Monday, according to an update from PRO Raj Bhavan.

Encouraging everyone to uphold the values that unite people—compassion, empathy and a shared sense of purpose—he emphasised the importance of drawing inspiration from the teachings of “our spiritual leaders and the wisdom of our ancestors as we work towards creating a future rooted in harmony and peace.”

He said the day marks a momentous occasion in Vindhya Basini Mandir history as the inauguration of Kirtan Bhawan and Hawan Kund signifies the commitment to spiritual enlightenment and communal harmony.

The governor expressed gratitude upon learning that the Mandir was founded in February 1962, boasting a history of over 50 years.

On the occasion, Ganesan also acknowledged and appreciated the generosity of Late Vinezo Angami and his family for donating the land where the present Mandir stands.

He said that the Kirtan Bhawan stands as a beacon of faith and devotion, a sanctuary where melodies of devotion transcend barriers of language and creed. “It is a testament to our rich cultural heritage and our unwavering belief in the power of spirituality to unite us all,” he said.

The governor said that the Hawan Kund represents a sacred fire pit used for performing hawan or yajnas, which are ancient Vedic rituals involving fire offerings and is regarded as a sanctified space where offerings such as grains, ghee, and herbs are ceremonially offered into the fire while chanting sacred mantras.

“It holds great spiritual and symbolic significance in Hinduism, serving as a focal point for religious rituals, spiritual purification and communion with the Divine,” he added.
