Blogs > Reuse and Recycle > Jaipur famous for its GEMs-------------Now Has a Unique GEM - 'Purushottam'

Posted by Shashi Kant Sharma on July 08, 2013

Yes the name of this Gem is 'Purushottam' i.e., purush+Uttam (the Man who excells among all Men) and he is the Priest of the Shiva Temple in Jaipur. He excelled all Men/Priests (?) too by taking his devotion/reverence to the Lord beyond the ordinary. He noticed that hundreds of gallons of Water and Milk poured for the 'abhisheka' of the ShivLing was flowing into the passage used by the devotees, ending up under their feet and into the drains...........Out of the Box thinking by this Gem led him to persuading all concerned to harvest this holy water/milk...........Having done that 4+ years ago for his temple, not only has he had the satisfaction of seeing the locality handpump starting to pump water, but also helped him convince managements of other temples and get them to adopt the best practice  he devised.......That is truly socially responsible living and devotion with mindfulness- a story that may become a part of talks on CSR and this truly is a good example of TSR (Temple social responsibility). Great power to his 'aarti-holding hand' and devotion
Must thank Times of India who discovered Purushottam, his Shiva Temple and published the story.
