Delivering his speech, Swami spoke against conversions, saying, “Hinduism is surviving due to the wealth of Puranas, Upanishads, Vedas and saints who appear periodically whenever dharma is in danger. Also, our worship of nature, trees, water sources have great relevance in the global warming context”.
