THE 21ST CENTURY – A
VERY BRIGHT FUTURE
(A GLIMPSE OF THE DIVINE VISION OF
YUGA RISHI SHRIRAM
The 3rd World War will not take place. Today’s wrath
will quieten down. Hot war will be converted into cold war and ultimately an
eternal “no war” state of the world will manifest.
Nuclear war will not take place. Those sects and organizations of
the world who with their might have demarcated lives which partition various
countries will in future be wiped off. Thus no more will the world be divided
into various countries and instead a single World Nation will come into being or
what is called “A Beautiful Borderless World” will manifest. No doubt the world
may be partitioned but this will only be for smoother governance by a World
There will no longer exist many political parties because the
world will be ruled by a one single Human Party. Those elected representatives
from various corners of the world will govern world humanity. No longer will
entrance exams be given importance for choosing important World Government
jobs. Instead these jobs will be given to radiant, skilful, honest and ethical
All literature, photographs, films etc. printed in the world today
which is lustful, lewd and distorted will in future be banned totally.
In order to fulfil the requirements of world humanity, a major
portion of the materials will be produced via cottage industries and will be
sold via cooperatives. Thus giant industrial concerns will not be able to
compete with those cottage industries. Clothing industries and Metal/clay
sculpting businesses will thrive in small villages. In this way the problem of
job paucity will be solved. Larger industries will produce only those materials
which these smaller scale industries, cottage industries etc. cannot
In the coming days a social organization will shoulder the
responsibility of laymen and society at large. Financial management too will
lie in the hands of this social organization. It will look after every need of
world humanity. Personal wealth hoarding and vain expenses will not be
Great saintly Men of this era will solve problems of daily
living. Philosophers and scientists will change their way of thinking in a
positive manner. A new class of thinkers / philosophers will come into being.
Great scientists of the world in future will use their prowess to invent smaller
technological apparatuses which will greatly benefit cottage industries.
The social difference between men and women will end. Today
cosmetics enhance sexual passion and thus women are looked down upon as dolls of
beauty. In future men will live like brothers and women like sisters. Today
success is correlated to your bank balance, which in future will have no
importance. Success in future will be correlated to how much one helps in
spreading human values and sacred ideals in the world and thus help world
humanity by touching the pinnacle of both material and spiritual glory.
In future people will find it demeaning to flaunt their
intelligence, wealth and success. Instead they will help enhance high leveled
skills and seek contentment and honour in aptly utilizing them for world
In the future Era of a Divine Intellect (Prajna Yuga), world
humanity will overcome Mental and bodily strifes because people will eat, drink
and rest as per the laws of nature. They will be self-controlled and like other
creatures, they will listen to inner intuition.
“Large Family” or “Joint Family” system will evolve as a
cooperative administration. All local activities will take place at one central
location in a cooperative manner. Instead of fulfilling daily activities like
cooking, washing clothes, feeding babies, shopping, tuitions, entertainment etc.
in an individual manner, everyone will work hard collectively and thus the needs
of all will be looked after. Thus society can save its time, money and hard
The above idealistic design of an individual family and society
should not be looked upon as a figment of one’s imagination because it is a
prophecy of a great seer of this era which will be proved true in the near

BROTHERHOOD AND THUS CREATE "A BEAUTIFUL BORDERLESS WORLD".
