Sonia lays foundation stone for Santhigiri Ashram Research Center

Thiruvananthapuram: UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi on Friday said the messages of universal love and total rejection of caste-ism were more relevant at a time now when religion was being used to divide people.

Speaking on the occasion of the foundation stone laying ceremony of the building of the Santhigiri Research Foundation at nearby Pothenkode, Gandhi said the founder of Santhigiri Ashram, Navajyothi Karunakara Guru’s messages on universal love and casteism were more applicable as religion was being used to trigger trouble.

The Santhigiri Research Foundation was at present operating as an umbrella body co-ordinating initiatives in research being conducted by its various wings including those of Ayurveda and Siddha systems.
