Zed urges Hindus to take vow on Holi of helping reduce social evils
A few days before Holi, Hindu statesman Rajan Zed urged 1 billion-plus Hindu's from across the globe to shun evil practices and spread the basic virtues of compassion, love, and care.
DISTINGUISHED HINDU statesman Rajan Zed, while sending Holi greetings to one billion Hindus across the world, has urged them each to take a vow of helping the community to shun social evils.

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, in a release in Nevada (USA) today, expressed warmest greetings to people on Holi, which falls on March 20 this year - wishing that it brings joy, happiness, blessings, and cheer to all.

Rajan Zed quoted ancient Hindu scripture Bhagavad-Gita (Song of the Lord): Do your work with the well-being of others always in focus. Don't do work only for the sake of profit; and carry out enlightened acts for the welfare of the world without any attachment.

Zed also advised Hindus to focus on inner search, stay pure, explore the vast wisdom of scriptures, make spirituality more attractive to youth and children, stay away from the greed, and always keep God in your life.

Joie de vivre festival of Holi welcomes the beginning of spring and starts about ten days before the full moon of Phalguna. The ceremonies include the lighting of the bonfires, during which all evils are symbolically burnt. Holi also commemorates the frolics of youthful Lord Krishna; celebrates the death of demoness Putana, burning of demoness Holika, and destruction of Kama by Shiva.

Hinduism is the oldest and third largest religion of the world, and moksha (liberation) is its ultimate goal.
