Incense sticks will be made from flowers of Gorakhnath temple, will not be thrown in the river: Yogi Adityanath

BanglaHunt Desk: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath visited the Hindu Ashram at the Gorakhnath temple in Gorakhpur on Sunday and made a special kind of incense stick. These incense sticks made from flowers given in the temple and used are not given ‘blessings’. Besides, Yogi Adityanath said that the flowers offered in the temple deteriorated after some time. So incense and perfume will be made from it.

This special type of incense stick has been made in a joint production of Medicals and Aromatic Plants of India, Lucknow and Maharogi Gorakhnath Agricultural Science Center, Gorakhpur. From now on, the flower garland offered at Gorakhnath temple will never go in vain.

Incense sticks will be made from flowers

In this regard, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said, “The flower garlands that people offer in the temple are taken to the fair. After a while, they are either thrown in the river water or in the rubbish heap.” If it is too much, it lasts for 12, 14, 20, 24 hours. At the same time, people's confidence is eroded and mixed with garbage.

He further said, ‘Medicals and Aromatic Plants of India and Mahayogi Gorakhnath Agricultural Science Center have come up with a joint solution to this issue. It is planned to make incense sticks and perfumes from the flowers offered to the deity in the temple, the flowers used in the puja at home, the flowers used in the wedding, and even the flowers dried during the cultivation of flowers.
