Besides using all necessary resources and actions to combat deadly coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed is urging Hindus to draw closer to God through prayer.
Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, urged the about 1.1 billion Hindus worldwide to pray at least twice daily in their home shrines with total devotion and pure heart.
These prayers may include making offerings to ista-devata, chanting mantras, reading sacred texts, performing arati and bhajans, doing puja, etc.; Rajan Zed points out.
Hindus are God’s people, full of courage and generosity. Petition God for the common good of all the local and world communities during these times of confusion and suffering, Zed says.
