Justice Worships at Mahabodhi Temple
Bodhgaya, 6 May. High Court Justice Shivakriti Singh worshipped at the
Mahabodhi Temple in Bodhgaya. He was welcomed on his arrival yesterday
evening by the Mahabodhi Temple Management Committee secretary Kalicharan
Yadav and the Monk in-charge the Ven Bodhipala. After worshiping in
the central shrine of the temple situated in the temple compound he
sat under the Bodhi tree and recited the Mangala Sutra with the monks
present there. Mr Singh was accompanied by the Block Officer and the
District Officer and other people. Mr Singh was very pleased by what
he saw at the temple. In the Guest Reception Centre the District Officer
Brajesh Mehotra presented to him the symbol of peace 'khada'
and a book about the Mahabodhi temple.
[Note: perhaps a khada is a khata, a silk scarf normally
given in blessing by Tibetan monks, or maybe its a reference to a piece
of handloom cloth khadi:-PGF]
