The Empowerer

The endless quest of Shri Veerendra Heggade to redeem the inhabitants of this beautiful hinterland called Belthangady from poverty and depression took him on yet another crusade for emancipation. Believing firmly in the saying "United we stand, divided we fall", he set about putting in place various carefully planned inclusive schemes to involve the people of Belthangady in alleviating themselves from their dilapidated conditions. He realized that the people themselves alone could ignite deep in their minds, the desire to come out of their poverty. He had to foster in them the feeling of love and respect for one another. He had to rekindle their self confidence and motivate them to come out of the morass of self-pity and rise as one to bring a true resurgence in their lives. A visit to these villages will bear testimony to the monumental success of this great drive. This is what adds credence to the Quintessence of Dharmasthala – “Sarve Janah Sukhino Bhavantu”
