A number of spiritual and devotional programmes are being taken up by different organisations as people from all walks of life are taking a keen interest in them.

Noted spirituality propagator Chaganti Koteswara Rao delivered discourses on a wide range of subjects during a three-day programme held at the Kasturdevi gardens here.

Devotees, particularly women and girls, thronged the venue in large numbers to take part in the devotional programmes and to listen to Mr. Koteswara Rao.

In his messages, he called upon people to allot at least some time for their own spiritual uplift despite their busy schedule. During this visit, Mr. Koteswara Rao also held the Jaganmatha Kathyayani puja in which devotees participated.

Speaking on the power of spirituality, he said that every person should make it a point to enquire about all gods during their visit to any place of worship. The vedic pundits of Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams blessed Mr. Chaganti Koteswara Rao on the occasion.

The Sri Bharadwaja Rudrabhisheka Sangham, which organised the programmes, felicitated Mr. Koteswara Rao on the occasion.
