Rangarajan narrated the descent of the ideal of adoration and worship of Motherland, Hindu Rashtra, right from the Vedic period and how it inspired great kings and emperors to fight for the protection of the sacred Motherland in the historic period and the patriots and freedom fighters to sacrifice their all at the altar of the Motherland. He said Mahakavi Bharati, the poet-patriot-philosopher of modern India, inspired by the Vedic ideals, declared the adoration and worship of Motherland as the highest religion for the children of Bharat and accordingly propounded his religious, political and social philosophy.   We have provided the links for the video of the function and Sadhu’s message in this post —   Please find the copy of video available @ url : PHILOSOPHY OF MAHAKAVI BHARATI by Sadhu Prof. V.
