The first discourse on Lord Chaitanya was held in observance of his 488th death anniversary on Tuesday at the Old Assembly Auditorium in Imphal West.
Lord Chaitanya is a follower of Vaishnavism, but his belief in oneness as mankind is the most beautiful ideology which should be followed by all, said MLA O Surjakumar while addressing the discourse.
Stating that none of the religious books insist on hating other religions, he called on the people to stay alert from such cult and those who are trying to misguide the followers of any religion by wrongly interpreting its concepts.
