OVASD MAGYARUL (amég nincs kész a fordítás)
Dear Brothers & Sisters,
May I draw your attention to an important event happening in the area of Haidakhan. Since many years the government of India is working on a plan to build a large dam about 8 Km down the river from Haidakhan. This project would benefit Haldwani and the whole area with electricity and a steady supply of water. With the ever increasing population a very necessary project. During the 90's the project got in a slump but recently the government has given this project a lot of new attention and funds to make it a reality. Several surveys and studies have been made in the last years where several times warnings have been expressed that the geological structure of these mountains would not be able to stand the pressure of such a large mass of water. The advice from some of these studies have been to build several smaller dams as a solution to the need.
Our personal interest is also that the large dam would create a lake so large that it would submerge whole of our Haidakhan Ashram ! Recently government servants have visited the Ashram to measure very structure and piece of land in the whole area and talks of compensation and relocation has started. In discussions with our Samaj new locations for an ashram have been offered to us some 20 kilometers up the river. For us devotees of Shri Babaji it is impossible to imagine that the temple built and founded by the own hands of Shri Munindra Maharaj over a 100 years ago and our beloved Herakhan Ashram would go under water. To relocate the Ashram and Temples at a new sight, will be a sad day for the thousands of devotees of Shree Babaji spread all over the world , as Haidakhan will loose its charm and sanctity.
Taking into account the advice of several experts from all over the world that this large dam may burst for what ever reason it would create large loss of life and property in Haldwani and surroundings and considering our vested interest in preserving our Haidakhan Vishwa Mahadham we are asking your support in launching a worldwide petition to convince the government of India to change their plans for the option of constructing few smaller dams. These petitions coming from all over the world will surely have it's effect if we all cooperate and ask our devotees, family members and friends to sign up. Please translate this page and down load this PDF file, translate and print it out and bring these signed pages by next Navaratri to India. Those of you running an Ashram, Babaji center, newsletter or web page please do cooperate so we get a maximum number of signatures. Be creative and see how you can obtain some signatures in your area to offer a solid petition later this year.
