89

Father's Day is celebrated every year on the third Sunday of June. This year, June 20 means tomorrow is Fathers. It was officially celebrated for the first time in the year 1910. Its main motive is to make people aware to give respect and thanks to the selfless duties of the father. Father is considered as the main pillar of the house and father performs his responsibilities with dedication. Many cultural activities are performed on this day around the world. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, virtual (online) cultural programs have been conducted for the last two years. In these, people are made aware of the responsibilities and duties of the father. In India, parents have got God-equal status from divine times. Father's orders are considered final. In modern times also father has equal rights.


For this, ISKCON is trying to take a unique initiative. Under this, many programs are being run. In the first program, the option of online aarti has been given for the welfare of the father. Children can join the aarti program and pray for the welfare of their father. At the same time, in the second option, the Discover Your Permanent Happiness (DYPH) course program is being run. In this men will be made aware of the spiritual responsibility of the father.


The Discover Your Permanent Happiness (DYPH) course will answer six questions on spirituality in a phased manner. In this regard, ISKCON chief Pradyumna Prabhu said that due to the corona epidemic, people are leading a stressful life for two years. Especially due to the second wave of the coronavirus, people's lives have been adversely affected. Keeping children safe from stress is very important in this difficult situation. For this, many programs are being organized by ISKCON on Father's Day. These programs will pave the way for the father to lead a life in difficult circumstances. He further said that I request the children to come forward and join the program with the father.
