Today is Guru Puja

Ancient Hindu texts and traditions have put the guru or the teacher on a pedestal higher than that of God. And Guru Purnima is a time to be grateful, to express gratitude towards, and bow before, the guru.

RSS holds the saffron flag as its guru and therefore the supreme. At the outset, the Sanghachalak performs puja of the saffron flag to mark the beginning of the celebrations. This is a time when each swayamsevak offers the “samarpan rashi”, a token amount of monetary contributions towards the organisation.

It may be hard to believe for many but RSS runs on this Samarpar Rashi. If you would like to offer “samarpan rashi” Please visit nearest shakha.
