Religion anchors this land - Vinoba

 ‘Moved by Love’ – Vinoba Bhave.

"It was about midnight and I heard the sound of singing from the temple nearby. Hymns went on and I was carried away. Here, I thought, are these villagers in this tiny village, miserabley poor, like walking skeletons, with practically nothing to cover their nakedness, and yet they can lose themselves in music such as this ! I was delighted.

Where had these people, in this village without a school, where no one could read or write, obtained this knowledge ? It must surely be because they sang with such devotion so many of the hymns of Tukaram and other saints, that they keep to this day their understanding and their intelligence. It is here that our strength lies."
