The priest in the picture is the one of those elite priests provided shelter in one of the temples situated in the vicinity of the most sacred Hindu pilgrimage site - Pashupatinath Temple situated in Kathmandu, Nepal. However, the temple was destroyed partially and rendered uninhabitable in the 7.9 magnitude earthquake that rocked Nepal on April 25, 2015. When we reached there, the priest was staring at the temple heartbroken. So, we brought him to our house where he provided him shelter for a month until he was restored as the main priest in some other temple in Kathmandu. In return, he blessed our family and promised to conduct a special worship for us in the temple.
Facts:-
A 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on April 25, 2015 that claimed the lives of 9000 people and property worth 10 billion NRs. It also rendered 100000 men homeless including children and old men. They are still struggling to get over the pain of loss and are forced to still remain in camps, 8 months after the earthquake. So, I request all to show solidarity and help the victims of earthquake in Nepal as well as the victims of other earthquakes all across the world. We have felt the pain of the disaster closely and wish that such disasters never destroy others as it destroyed our country. Jay Shree Krishna!
