GUWAHATI, Feb 21 � Sankardev Mission, a non-governmental organization working in the field of conducting research activities on the works and philosophy of Vaishnavaite saint-reformer Srimanta Sankardev today released two computerized images of Srimanta Sankardev arguing that the images would help younger generation accept the Vaishnavaite scholar as environmentalist and social scientist.
In a programme organized at the Guwahati Press Club here, the Mission president Surendra Nath Bora said that the lack of suitable images of the Guru has led to the ignorance about various aspects of Srimanta Sankardev�s personality.
�To do away with such ambiguities and popularise a clear image of the Guru across the State and the nation, the Sankardev Mission has taken up this initiative and released two computer generated images of Srimanta Sankardev titled �Prakritibid Sankardev� and �Dharmiya Prakritibid Sankardev,� Bora said.
The programme was presided over by eminent journalist and litterateur Kanaksen Deka. Writer Shaktimoy Das, who has translated various Assamese literary works to Bengali language, was felicitated with gamosa, sorai and cheleng chadar on the occasion.
�We are trying to throw light on various aspects of Srimanta Sankardev�s creations, which are little known to the people. The great saint, who established the sublime embodiment of Sri Krishna as the formless God in Srimadbhagwat, is the true discoverer of the eternity. Even the scientists are conducting studies on God Particle, an idea, which found place in Anadipatan of Sankardev in 1550 AD, which is based on India�s hidden classical physics of Bamana Purana,� he said.
Writer Kanak Chandra Sarma and journalist Enasi Barua, among others, also took part in the programme. The Mission is also conducting a study literature and preaching of the Vaishnavaite scholar, and would soon come up with a book titled God� Einstein and Sankardev.
