THE GANGOTRI GLACIER OF DIVINE WISDOM OF THE 21ST CENTURY-SHANTIKUNJ (HARIDWAR, INDIA)
Citizens of India very well know that river Ganges originates from the Gangotri glacier. Gangotri town situated in Uttarkashi region which is one of the 4 major pilgrim spots (Char Dham) in Uttarakhand state was burnt to naught due to a curse of Maharshi Vishwamitra. On this very spot Rishi Bhagirath performed terrific austerities in order to liberate his 60000 ancestors. Thus River Ganges that dwells in heaven was happy to manifest on earth.
In this present era akin to Rishi Bhagirath another Rishi incarnated in the form of Ved Murti Taponishtha Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya who by rendering the world renowned sacred pilgrim spot Haridwar his land of activities aided the flow of Ganges of Divine Wisdom (Jnana Ganga) in the entire world. It is because of this that today the world over Shantikunj (All World Gayatri Family HQ) founded and established by him is honored as the Gangotri of Divine Wisdom of the 21st century.
We all are aware how not only our country India but the entire world is combating various problems. If we delve deep into all the problems of the entire world we will realize truly that the single underlying cause of all this is human tainted intellect. Maybe thousands of efforts shall be executed yet as long as a wholesome sacred intellect does not manifest in world humans till then no permanent solutions for these problems can be unveiled. It is only those who possess a pious intellect that can have faith in its unlimited potential. Instead of dying due to various worrisome situations he/she even with very few means shall lives of joy, peace and satiation and shall become a pillar of strength for others too. In our Sanatan Culture the supreme prayer for awakening a great sacred intellect is Gayatri Meditation. Super Mantra Gayatri belonging to the Vedas possesses such a self manipulating mechanism as a result of which man’s tainted intellect is wiped off and instead a sacred intellect develops fully. This fact has been well accepted the world over on the basis of deep research conducted regarding it.
This belief has prevailed since time immemorial but if we study details of 30-40 years previously not everyone was given the right to chant Gayatri Mantra. It is said that Rishis Vishwamitra and Vashishtha had ‘locked’ (Keelit) this Mantra. Only one special class of people was given the right to chant this Mantra. The results are crystal clear. A tainted intellect kept increasing in world humans and disparity and bad will spread like wild fire everywhere. A heavenly situation of the past got converted into hellish situations the world over. The Rishi of this era Ved Murti Taponishtha Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya akin to Rishis Vishwamitra and Vashishtha of yore performed terrific penance so as to end once and for all every objection related to Gayatri Mantra chanting. He by urging the entire world to accept that the Varna or caste system in India is not based on birth but that has its basis in what type of actions we perform further inspired all to undergo Gayatri Meditation and slowly but surely by developing a great sacred intellect one must attain true Brahmin-hood. It is only a great pious intellect that can solve any world problem however complex it is. It is such an intellect that can harbinger heavenly situations on earth. Despite obstacles existing Ved Murti Taponishtha Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya emphatically proclaimed to the world that this world certainly is not headed towards destruction but in fact this world shall reach a zenith of glory. In the year 1986 AD he christened the 21st century as ‘21st century-A bright future’. The sacred land of the activities of this Rishi who via the power of his austerities rendered easily accessible the method of activating a sacred intellect in world humans as shown great Rishis of yore is Shantikunj (All World Gayatri Family HQ, Haridwar, Uttarakhand, India) which today is worshiped the world over as the Gangotri Glacier of Divine Wisdom of the 21st century.
THE STREAM OF SACRED DIVINE WISDOM IS FLOWING SWIFTLY:
This year 2011 AD is being celebrated the world over as the birth centennial of Ved Murti Taponishtha Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya. He was the founder inspirer of a world thought based revolution. Hence this year is also called the Century of Thought Revolution. In the entire country book fairs have been set up wherein literature written by Ved Murti Taponishtha Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya has been exhibited. Not only lay public but even great thinkers, authors, saints, orators etc on seeing these exhibitions of 3200 books written by him are spell bound by their contents. It is definitely mind boggling to note that volumes of literature, of highest stature, that transforms the lives of all in a multifaceted way have been penned by a single individual. Yet akin to Rishi Bhagirath Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma via his power of penance like River Ganges flowing in heaven transformed the entire world positively by ushering in the Ganges of Divine Wisdom which is flowing in the entire world.
BELIEF THE WORLD OVER IS CHANGING FOR THE BETTER:
Recently in Shantikunj an auspicious inauguration of Khadi Gram Udyog Training Center took place. The chief guest of this auspicious inauguration Mr. Jayshankar Mishra (CEO of Indian Government’s Khadi Gram Udyog Ayog) said beliefs regarding religion and spirituality are now changing at a fast pace. Today my son also does the Tilak, goes to the temple, reads spiritual books and performs worship rites too. Previously 30-40 years back this faith was precariously dangling on a precipice. Educated young people shied away from religion and spirituality in those times. No doubt this transformation has taken for many reasons yet its chief inspirer is the founder of scientific spirituality Ved Murti Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya.
Acharyaji while testing religions on the basis of scientific principles helped influence the world positively with its scientific nature, utility value and amazing effect. He himself lived a life of great ideals and said that instead of following religion blindly from generation to generation it must be imbibed only after testing it on the basis of true discrimination or Viveka. The goal of religion is not to fulfill selfish transient desires but is meant for self purification, developing soul potential and destroying erroneous traditions and blind faith of all sorts.
SHANTIKUNJ-A MINT FOR DEVELOPING OUR INNER PERSONALITY:
Today in India there are hundreds of temples and pilgrim spots. Shantikunj which is a cut above all of them has its own unique identity. Revered Gurudeva Shriram Sharma has not established this as a temple or hermitage/Ashram. In fact he developed as a mint for developing our inner personality in a great manner. From here has commenced a gigantic task of rejuvenating the tradition of mass education via the institute of religion. He used to say that today the world over the epidemic of a disease called vile intellect has spread far and wide. Thus we must reach out to millions of such diseased people and ward off this rampant epidemic of a tainted brain. In order to fulfill this task in 1971 AD he founded Shantikunj (All World Gayatri Family HQ, Haridwar, Uttarakhand, India). Later till today incessant training programs are being conducted. Over here daily 3000 participants get trained in various fields. Over here at regular intervals continuous 9 day camps are conducted called Sanjivani Sadhana Camp, Yugshilpi Camp of 1 month, 3 monthly Music Training Programs and a 45 days Camp for Rural Management Training. Apart from this, seminars are held here for teachers, professors, scout-guides, police, government officials and industrial workers.
Chiefly in all camps and Dev Sanskriti University education is imparted regarding the art of living a spiritual life. Along with camps held at Shantikunj Gayatri Mantra chanting programs are compulsory. Over here is the temple of Vedmata Gayatri. It is a part and parcel of the art of living a theistic life. Sacred monuments of Vedmurti Taponishtha Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya and his divine consort HH Bhagwati Devi Sharma too dwells here called ‘Prakhar Prajna-Sajal Shraddha’. Faithful devotees experience that bowing down to these monuments gives same results and blessings that they got by doing so when the divine couple were alive in their mortal coil. On the Vasant Parva of 1926 AD Acharyaji had lit a flame torch that day when his Guru from the Himalayas appearing in the form of subtle divine light (astral body) had given him a taste of Self Realization. This imperishable flame torch is ceaselessly kept lit even today at Shantikunj. Every day thousands of visitors who visualize this torch and all those who are imbued with deep faith attain the divine light of inspiration and potent energy from it. Shantikunj has also opened the Dev Sanskriti University from 2002 AD which has got approval from the Indian Government and University Grant’s Commission of India. In this University basic courses, graduation courses and advanced research based courses are being conducted. This in itself is a rare University. Exceptional are its courses and syllabus. It lays great emphasis on rendering its students advanced at the soul level, sanctified as far as the inner personality is concerned and making them more accountable and responsible towards duties regarding world welfare. From Shantikunj-the Gangotri of Divine Wisdom of the 21st century many revolutionary tasks have set rolling. Over here one will find no communal or caste based disparity. Everyone is inspired here to attain true Brahmin sacred qualities. From here commenced the slogan ‘21st Century-Women’s Century’ as proclaimed by Acharyaji. From here all creative tasks are gaining momentum so as to spread out in the entire world. Shantikunj has set up its own Task Force so as to reach out and serve sorrow stricken people experiencing agony at every step in their lives.
RAMPANT CORRUPTION CANNOT BE WIPED OUT JUST LIKE THAT
POWERFUL BUT VERY CORRUPT:
It is believed that by the year 2025 AD China, India and Brazil shall become very powerful. The power of America, European Union, Japan and Russia shall diminish. Despite this USA will top, followed by china and 3rd spot shall belong to India. This observation has been given by ‘Institute for Securities Studies’ in the report titled ‘Global Governance-2025’. This news is very potent and full of hope. Progress in the communication industry, a large number of people in the Skilled Task Force etc are paving the way for our gigantic economic progress. Since labor charge is very less over here, labor is very cheap in India. Multinational companies hence are blooming here. Indians are hard working, self dependent but yet since poverty, inequality and corruption are rampant will this dream of super power status get realized? Daily new statistics regarding black money force us to ponder whether this journey shall reach its desired destination?
EVERY 3rd PERSON IS CORRUPT:
An institute called ‘Transparency International’ ceaselessly monitors corruption the world over. Amongst top 10 corrupt countries of the world India stands at 3rd spot. According to this institution every 3rd person of India is corrupt. They always bribe to get their work done. Corruption has entered the very blood of Indian citizens. Corruption is verily a social taint. Why is it that it has become a status symbol? Today a corrupt person walks arrogantly with head held high. Previously such people walked with heads down in shame. Citizens of India who hope to become an economic super power fail to understand that their nation is becoming brittle and hollow because of blatant corruption. It appears as though it has been full accepted at the social level as a way of life. According to this institute even today 20% of Indians who listen to the call of their conscience live lives of ethics and integrity. 30% are totally immersed in corrupt practice and the remaining stand on its precipice. ‘The more one is wealthy, the more one is honored-this belief that has developed in the past 2 decades is in its true sense a shame and taint on our country.
IS THIS THEN THE SOLUTION?
It will not be correct to write again and again statistics regarding this topic as quoted by Anna Hazare and his related organization ‘India Against Corruption’ and Baba Ramdev’s ‘Bharat Swabhiman Trust’ yet it is important to draw our attention to some important points. We may keep shouting ‘bring back black money hoarded in alien countries’ yet this movement shall not get fulfilled till the very thinking process of our governing bodies transform positively. It is no use if every lay person does not get awakened. When every citizen thinks about welfare of its country, that very wealthy country too shall work for people’s well being.
A BIRD’S EYE VEW:
Let us first delve deep into as to why such a situation manifested at all?
a) After economic reforms were ushered in India in 1991 AD people started eking out more income and thus started immersing in sense merriment. It was not as if previous to this black money was not hoarded yet it is only in the past about 15 years that a naked showcasing of sense pleasures and vain pomp has augmented manifold. Where did all this money come from? Hard work, fixed monthly income from jobs, agriculture cannot reap so much cash. For this end short cuts were taken and slowly people started becoming nouveau riche.
b) By joining the government and thus by moving in cars with red/yellow lights one can lead a grand exotic life-this belief has increased in society. Corrupt practices of government and their officers are rising swiftly. Not a few millions but billions of cash is eked out via corruption. No doubt many cases were filed against them in courts but these cases never moved ahead. How can a government’s agency work against officials of the government itself? If one’s own paramour is a police officer whom shall one get scared of? More than 3000 such corrupt officials are leading serene lives. They run their families using ill gotten wealth and arrogantly laughing aloud at others. Nothing much happens even if one or two corrupt ministers get imprisoned. We must unearth that well which contains water mixed with alcohol of corruption and drinking which every addict jumps into the bandwagon of corruption.
c) A majority of people have given up hopes from getting true justice from the judicial system in India. Leaving apart the apex court majority of Indians opine that gaining justice is full of expenses, woven with corruption and full of delays. Regarding judicial reforms a survey was done on about 100,000 citizens of 9 states. 75% of the people bluntly said that they have no faith in justice meted out by courts of laws. Court cases get prolonged for years simply by bribing court officials and thus delaying the whole justice process. Everyone wants judicial reforms. Our Supreme Court made a very fiery observation regarding a High Court saying: Doesn’t everyone know that majority of the judges in your court are corrupt?
d) Income Tax, Sales Tax, Excise and RTO Departments are believed to be extremely corrupt. There is a lot of competition to get enlisted in these departments. These are said to be jobs full of ‘creamy butter’. Majority of lawyers have become wealthy in the past 2 decades by fighting court cases of officials attached to the above departments.
e) Revered Gurudeva Shriram Sharma opined that shirking work is the biggest crime. This exactly is the observation made in a very recent report put forth by ‘Institute of Defense Studies and Analysis’. They write that remaining absent in offices and shirking work is a silent mode of corruption which is eating up India like termites eat up wood. This institute opines that misusing public offices and posts for personal gains is definitely a form of corruption.
f) Many government agencies like Election Commission, CAG, CVC etc are supposed to help obstruct corruption yet dirty politics have entered their very foundation. 75% companies in India due to corporate corruption have to shoulder millions of rupees of loss. Our country India has powerful laws, government is elected and there is a potent democracy yet corruption breeds like flies here. This is because all of above mentioned are involved in it.
DOES IT LOOK AS THOUGH TRANSFORMATION SHALL UHER IN?
We certainly do not know what shall be the result of Shri Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev’s hunger strike. It is not so important to know what is happening in New Delhi but what is noteworthy is that whether every individual realizes his/her responsibility or not. As long as we refuse to reform ourselves governance will persist as is seen today and that it shall get worse day after day. Instead of harboring hopes in the political system citizen’s awakening must be directed towards self reform and spiritual evolution. When we all measure our self and soul not on the basis of how much material wealth we possess but how righteous are we in carrying out world welfare duties like cogs in a wheel, then material wealth shall no longer become the be all and end all of life as is seen today. For this end the largest democracy of the world in the next 5 years shall have to undergo a fiery test. Merely by enacting the Jan Lokpal Bill, recalling black wealth stashed away in alien countries and changing the form of currencies shall not bring about a much required total transformation. If at all it sets in it will be due to a desired transformation of the psyche and thinking process. The winds of change shall definitely appear if agitations are carried out against corrupt people in various arenas of life, expensive weddings/parties full of pomp etc.
THUS WE SHALL GET LIBERATED FROM TAINTS:
It is only our spiritual advancement that shall help absolve us from the taints of corruption. Thus not only shall we understand the pain of urban but rural population too. Schemes of their all round advancement shall harbinger in via village self rule. In order to uproot corruption we shall have to travel to every district and village instead of visiting air conditioned offices of our capital New Delhi. We must alert and awaken our people. We must help them understand their duties towards their country. Every lay citizen can definitely do this much. We must commence this task ourselves and with our family members and thus if render this aim mobile in entire society the demon called corruption shall easily be defeated once and for ever. This is in fact a type of wine that renders us inebriated. If hence we wish to save ourselves from its dizziness we must become a part of the Thought Revolution floated by Yug Nirman Mission. Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma proclaimed: ‘Corruption can only be wiped out by reforming ourselves first’; ‘If we change, this era shall change’. Thus the onus lies on us to take up this great gigantic responsibility. Instead of finding out what is happening in New Delhi if 10,000,000 people keep an eye on 100 people in their vicinity and help advance a system to awaken them then till 2020 AD India can become a clean, ethical and spiritual country. Hence the million dollar question is: Are we ready to shoulder this great responsibility?
THE ROAD OF SELFLESS SOCIAL SERVICE IS FAR GREATER THAN POLITICS
It is the ill fate of our country India that despite people wanting to enter public arenas yet their viewpoint is extremely narrow. Politics is looked upon as the be all and end all of life. One can understand how everyone experiences a magnetic pull towards politics on seeing the number of candidates standing for elections to get voted as Member of Parliament. In other countries per seat not more than 2 or 3 candidates stand for election and they too fight as coalition parties. Further they have some ideology in mind along with a program designed for it but in our country India just about anyone stands for election like a band of sheep and by deluding the mind of voters they obstruct good candidates from getting elected.
If we take a closer look at parliament elections so as to survey them in depth it will become clear there are such candidates facing failure who in order to enter politics had made intense efforts. In fact they had to shell out millions of rupees for this. Why is there so much attraction, effort and expenses used for politics? Regarding this we shall not cast aspersions. This is because it could be that amongst these candidates there are quite a few who yearn to truly serve their country. It could be that a few fight elections to gain name and fame. Some must be making such a gamble so that on getting elected they can amass millions of cash. A few although yearning to stand for election did not do so because circumstances did not cooperate with them.
Whatever the case maybe, it is clear that in order to enter the public arena many skillful people may have the aim of becoming leaders, get name and fame or else execute selfless service to society or it could be an admixture of all this which is magnetically pulling them towards politics. This dawning fact can be seen amongst those people too who in order to access high status and positions in leading institutions pull and push others and thus set a bad example. Taking on the superficial garb of ‘social service’ majority are diseased with the illnesses mentioned above. As a result the arena of public life loses its piety and those who push and pull ultimately reap failure only from all standpoints. They gain neither fame nor glory. How can selfless service be executed by people with tainted psyches? In actuality those who wish to serve society selflessly we suggest to them to enter social arena and take up those tasks which are more steadfast and glorious in comparison to politics. The area of politics truly is unsteady if looked at from the standpoint of honor. As long as you are an MP or MLA people bow down to you but the moment you lose your status you get respect only as is given to a lay traveler on the roadside. In order to attain this fleeting status for a very short length of time, in order to lead in politics certain people carry out such deluded activities which are known to vilify their soul and in the court of Almighty Lord they are labeled so called ‘selfless workers’.
In order to lead in politics people are known to pull and push in a mob like fashion. Those who try to rush in are pushed by those already seated there. In comparison of risking one’s life by latching on to the door handle of a crowded moving train it is better to sit in a less crowded vehicle even if it means reaching one’s destination a bit late. India’s social arena is such which gives us great opportunities to work truly for people’s welfare and thus a lot can be achieved. In this area without any competition true public welfare tasks can be executed and while walking on this glorious path one can attain true honor and respect for a long time span.
The fact is that in order to overcome our country’s backwardness politics cannot succeed as compared to success tasted by selfless service in the social field. It is indeed a gigantic task to overcome backwardness in India related to widespread taints in ethics, thinking process and social norms too since for thousand years it lost a lot by being relegated to slaves of alien rule. This task cannot be fulfilled by political leaders but only via true selfless workers executing great tasks of social uplifting.
The chief symbol of backwardness is illiteracy. In government schools very few children take admission. We cannot afford to render adults and females illiterate for their entire lifetime. The government is dilly dallying in running even the present schools established by them. In order to render adults educated government expensive schemes shall slap so much tax that it seems it is better to remain illiterate. This task can only be fulfilled by the educated class with a sense of selfless service by going to every village, town etc and setting up schools for adults. In order that adults take up education in their spare time after finishing their jobs, business etc everywhere schools opening at dawn and post dusk must be inaugurated.
The reason why our society is weak from the economic and ethical standpoint is lavish spending on marriages, parties etc in a vain manner. If for every marriage Rs 20000 is used and if in every family 4 people get married then the total cost would be Rs 80000. Thus there are 0.7 million families in our country. Thus the total cost of marriage of this country would run into billions of rupees. On an average this wealth is earned illegally or that food, clothes, medicine and education expenses are slashed. Those who take loans for marriage face more strife. Thousands of girls remain spinsters and either later they are married off to aged men or they commit suicide. If the vile tradition of lavishly expensive marriages is given up a lot of money can be saved which in turn can be used in agriculture, various industries and so on. In this manner our country shall become wealthier than USA too.
Augmenting one’s income is beneficial only if wasteful expenses are given up. Else financial insecurity shall loom large over our scalps. If today’s lavish spending on marriage and other parties is not obstructed India shall have to bear a lot of financial strain even if income of people increases.
Take for example alcohol/drug and other forms of addiction. Merely tobacco expenses per day add up to 20 million rupees. If we add alcohol, cannabis etc to this the expenses would be 50 million rupees per day. It means per year 18,000 million rupees go down the drain. If this cash is saved instead so many problems related to public health, education etc can be solved and further we can protect ourselves from taints like ill health, lack of proper income, family quarrels, criminal activities etc.
Due to the tradition of donning a veil or Purdah half the women’s population in world society has been rendered handicapped. If this vile tradition is warded off a 2 fold labor power and 2 fold talent power can contribute towards national development. Production of materials can thus increase and a multifaceted advancement can be achieved.
The taint of un-touchability by obstructing a major portion of lay public from accessing basic human rights force them to live a life of backwardness. Their discontent and backwardness are speed breakers on the road of national development. It is hence a must that we wash off this taint. There is once again a need of congregating various large small communities and sects scattered like dust particles under one umbrella of unity and equality. Government laws are enacted so as to obstruct all vile activities yet a lot of illegal/criminal activities pervade our society. In order to wipe out the disparity created due to un-touchability and communal partitioning it is just not enough to enact tough laws but that a lot of effort is required to create an apt atmosphere for this.
Due to a dearth of cottage industries women and senior citizens are rendered production less. If they are given jobs their financial position shall become stronger and thus children can be given more nutritious food and sound education. In this direction it is not a necessity that only government does all the work. In the social service arena a lot can be done.
If we truly wish to protect our cow population introduce the utility value and supremacy of drinking cow’s milk to one and all and for those who wish to purchase cow’s milk gigantic cow milk colonies must be set up. Since people will become aware of the great usage of cow’s milk, financially a lot of cash can be generated and further, cows too shall be protected.
In the field of literature only rubbish is being written, published and sold everywhere. In order to uproot this tainted trend such literature shall have to be authored for the lay public which advances a defendant’s viewpoint. It is a must that lewdness overflowing in pictures and books be hammered to naught so as to preserve ethical values. It is hence required that in this direction true progress be looked upon as making available creative things to the lay public. Till now literature for children and women has not been penned that gives apt light to the new the new generation and women class. In the social arena in a certain sense there is a dearth of effective magazines that magnify true leadership qualities. Today there are numerous newspapers that tom-tom about politics despite the fact that India truly requires thousand fold encouraging of social movements. Today’s times demand that this requirement gets fulfilled.
Cinema and movies are the biggest form of entertainment. In 7000 movie theaters spanning across India thousands of people visit them to watch movies. Majority of these films induce undesirable thinking in the psyche of the viewers and thus ethical and social values run miles away from them. It is just not enough merely to criticize movies. If in an organized manner creative wholesome films are produced/directed then via them sentimental creation shall get a fillip and thus a revolution oriented around ethics, intellect and society shall come into being in full throttle (Note: At that time TV was not so much in vogue).
There is a great need to open gymnasiums in every village. In order to combat criminal elements security task forces must be set up and the citizens must know how to parade and use basic weapons for self defense only. Sports training and competitions can augment everyone’s health. For national health security there is a requirement of rendering widespread the movement of exercising.
Keeping in mind scarcity of food and mainly nutritious food it is a must that fresh vegetable and fruit production be increased in a big way. If the tradition of eating vegetarian food at least once a week is ushered in not only health will remain balanced but that food too can be saved. By designing agitations against wasting food in parties, marriages etc a major portion of food grain can be saved. If kitchen gardens are set up in homes to grow fruits, vegetables etc then on the one hand creative tasks shall increase and at the other end houses shall radiate beauty of lush greenery and money used to buy fruits etc from the bazaar shall be saved. If wholesome usage of urine, feces etc of cows and other creatures is taught to everyone cleanliness will augment and the fertilizers from these can increase food production manifold. Such small but very important endeavors can aid national development in a big way.
Libraries are powerful instruments that augment knowledge in the educated class of society. It is a fact that not everyone possesses enough finance to buy books that are useful in daily living. Hence libraries can fulfill this lack in a gigantic way. Libraries that own books which inspire our thinking positively and mobile libraries can fulfill the need of imbuing public psyche with greatness.
Living on alms has rendered 5.3 million ascetics in India idle and despite a person capable of doing jobs gets minor physical ailment takes recourse to begging as a way of living. These people must somehow be forced to work. Capable people who beg for their food must be labeled robbery and a crime. We can understand if those who volunteer for selfless social service or are handicapped in some way look after their basic daily needs from donations given to them but if capable people causelessly beg for donations or use foul means to earn their daily bread attacks the very character of one’s country and paves the way of an overall downfall of human dignity. Of course it is the duty of society to look after handicapped and weaker section yet begging of alms and food certainly cannot be allowed to flourish as a ‘profession’.
Such an environment can be readied so as to obstruct wastage of expenditure on useless ornaments, sense merriment and fashion and instead use this money for tasks of great utility value. There are many social taints like child marriage, marriage of aged people, selling of brides and grooms etc that can be warded off at the social level.
In the above lines we have thrown light on only a few requirements for our society. There are so many other such tasks which if taken up can contribute immensely to the all round development of human society. In order to take up activities of movements and creative schemes if organized efforts are executed then doubtlessly true selfless service of the world can be ushered in.
Taints that have entered the political arena cannot be destroyed as long as the voters do not learn to differentiate between what is good for them and otherwise and by looking upon voting rights as the sacred foundation of our country capable and trustworthy people must be elected to power. For this widespread public education is most required. In a democratic form of government the key lies in the hands of the voters. Even corrupt political leaders can be combated in a contemporary manner yet its spirituality based solution rests in the hands of the voter and thus lay public. Thus the voting class must be awakened towards this all important righteous duty of theirs.
Only those can carry out the task of awakening the public who by their pious radiant character and selfless service can carve out a place of deep respect for themselves in the psyche of all citizens. Those who can valiantly do so the garland of faith of people and glory too rests around their necks and only these can be called true leaders of the public.
Taking along with them such great creative tasks and all religious sects Yuga Nirman Mission is working in full throttle. It has got ready a gigantic work arena for true selfless service and spiritual practice oriented people. It has its basis in Indian Religion and Culture and since it oozes with the call of this era the lay public not only eulogizes it but has truly accepted it too. If those people who yearn to attain political supremacy start working selflessly for social well being how grateful the entire nation will be and those zests too shall be utilized in a great manner which today is rendered deluded and wayward since it gets kicked here and there in the political field. If by immersing ourselves in true social welfare endeavors we gain true respect from lay citizens it will certainly not be difficult to become a true leader yet if one insists on just jumping about like chimpanzees in order to become a political head, how can steadiness set in it?
IT IS THE VILE HUMAN INTELLECT THAT HAS CREATED TODAY’S DIRE WORLD PROBLEMS
Man has full freedom and independence to carry out any action but as far as the results, fruits and reactions of these actions he is bound by certain cosmic laws. Other creatures understanding this fact due to their natural instincts act accordingly but human beings err a lot since many a times he gets fruits of his action in a delayed manner. He does not imbibe farsightedness and conveniently forgets that if he insists on ignoring Viveka or true discrimination he shall have to face dire reactions in future. This is that error as a result of which man makes more mistakes than he would do so under normal situations. Hence it is humans who endure more problems and strife. There was a time when man had reached pinnacles of glory and since he was the prince of the Creator or Almighty God he rendered his thinking process and activities such which resulted in apt world management so that none the world over faced obstacles in life.
Today the world possesses such enormous amounts of various means that is all humans share these with each other in a friendly manner none shall have to undergo lack or danger of any sort. In ancient world history such a pious intellect ruled the world over. Before taking any step it was mulled over whether as to what would be its result in future? If we imbibe aptness and wholesomeness, situations that are conducive shall definitely multiply. Such times previously were labeled Golden Era or Satyuga. Hastily people give up the path of greatness jump from huge heights only to land on ground full of thorns. Selfishness induces friction between people and many dire situations crop up as a result.
By not thinking farsightedly those who think only about immediate benefits they like sparrows and fish get enmeshed in nets and akin to flies who jump on to sugar syrup die because their wings get stuck to it. This very cycle of a tainted intellect if with extraordinary speed becomes intense such complex problems ensue which perforce makes the world public endure situations full of hardships.
Since many a times a delay in the manifestation of reactions are seen after an action is executed people harbor doubts and erroneously say that not necessary that our action be it good or vile shall reap results in accordance. Many times people who execute vile tasks are seen saved from undergoing dire results of their sins and further those who perform sacred actions do not see the wholesome results of these actions in their lives. Thus people think that there is no law in this world that gives us fruits of our actions and thus everyone wallows in darkness. Under such situations unruly actions based on ones whims and fancies can be executed. Such unruly people do not wait for the time that takes for the results of unethical actions to appear and by becoming atheists they act as and how they please. They conveniently forget that no doubt a seed gets converted into a tree after it is sown, yet it takes a certain time period for the seed to sprout. It takes a certain length of time for milk to get transformed into curds. It is a fact that those who behave unethically shall undergo punishment but we must note that this dire result could manifest after a certain time span. The health and life span of alcohol and drug addicts keep deteriorating yet all these dire effects are not perceived immediately.
Lest as soon as one uttered falsehood ulcers were to erupt on the tongue, lest as soon as one committed robbery ones hands were to get chopped off, lest those indulging in extramarital sex became eunuchs immediately etc none would dare carry out vile acts but Almighty Lord in order to gauge humanity’s understanding capacity maybe has given us an opportunity to awaken an intellect full of discrimination that can decipher what is right and wrong. Man should aptly use his brains and walk on the path of true greatness. Those who fail in this test are duly punished but because there is a delay he falls and further by not imbibing farsightedness he endures a downfall due to erring and getting kicked at every step of life. Bang opposite to this those who can truly understand things deeply and manage their activities optimally while keeping in mind future results to be faced they by using their wealth of life aptly glorify themselves and by giving an opportunity to others to follow in their holy footsteps a great number of people accrue all round benefits. One amongst all the specialties and glories given by God to mankind is that they have the capacity to gauge the reaction of every action executed and thus while staying away from ill omen can lead lives of joy and peace.
These days since there is very little place for love, affection and friendship man’s behavior has become so strange wherein oppressing others has become his pastime. On the basis of mutual cooperation we no doubt can benefit each other but where individualism rules the roost there one does not understand whether due to imbibing a narrow selfish attitude others’ rights are infringed upon or not? This situation is such that instead of paying due heed to others’ hardships and grief we just delve on our benefit. At the root of unethical actions, atrocities, suppression, kidnapping and harassment is this very selfish thinking. It is beyond doubt that only those who harbor no sense of affection or goodwill to others carry out heinous acts without any guilty feeling. For even a miniscule benefit for themselves they can throw mountains of anguish on other. Seers of human religion have always opposed such heinous selfish actions and have proclaimed that the sacred attitude of ‘Atmavat sarva bhuteshu’ or that ‘all creatures are a part of my very soul’ must be imbibed by us all. If we do not like people behaving with us in a certain manner we too should not behave with them in that manner. The meaning of seeing our souls in all living beings is to look upon others joy as ours and others sorrow too as ours. The fount of sacred sensitive emotions of human stature is conjoined to this very belief. If it is imbibed whole heartedly it is impossible to act and behave despicably. Thus one will yearn to serve all selflessly and generous feelings of sharing others joy and sorrow will ooze immensely.
It is despicable to render selfish one’s ego and it is greatness if the ego is rendered widespread encompassing all beings. Great saintly people always think, plan and execute great tasks of world welfare and know for sure that this is true soul advancement. The sense of kinship of an advanced person spreads not only in all humans but in all living beings. Under such circumstances just as we wish to gather means of comforts and joy for ourselves in the same way we also start realizing that by seeing others experiencing happiness and peace our minds too feel bliss and that if we see someone in sorrow we will rush out to help them overcome it. If such human sacred emotions bloom forth none will even think of acting unwholesomely with others.
The root cause of acting untowardly is lack of farsightedness and true discrimination. In future which action shall breed which reaction or result? If we fail to attain such farsightedness we will run after only immediate benefits even if it means acting unethically. Just as due to vision problems we can only see things nearby and find it difficult to see objects kept afar in the same way a person lacking farsightedness looking upon immediate benefits as the be all and end all of life shall do anything to accrue those benefits. What shall be the result of all this? People lacking farsightedness cannot even imagine regarding this and their condition is akin to remaining blind despite possessing eyes. People of such character may not doubt accrue immediate benefits yet they lose their integrity and human values. They no longer enjoy the trust of others in society, none becomes his true friend and people do not wish to give them any advice since they are always gazed at suspiciously. Due to dearth of help, in an atmosphere of suspicion despite living in crowded areas they experience aching loneliness. Each sensual person knows how dry, terrifying and fearful loneliness is. Due to lack of discrimination many undesirable qualities enter one’s character and one takes up drug, alcohol vices. Without inviting them lethargy, indolence, cunningness, fraud, arrogant ego and desires for fleeting sense pleasures become one’s allies. Since integrity runs far away our character sheds all brilliant talent and skills it previously oozed with. The psyche of robbers and criminals always reeks of fear, they are always suspicious of bad omens attacking them and thus their precious time lapses by in doubts only. The result of this is that they invite hatred and enmity from others. In the mirror of the world they see only their wicked ugly form and character.
You can fool some of the people some of the time but it is impossible to fool everyone all the time. Due to bad behavior of ours other people become mediums to inflict pain on us. Those who loot others too face looting in the long run by other people. Such incidences are seen off and on by us all. Those who act without self control shall definitely face punishment in the long run if not immediately.
In every walk of life we are witnessing bad behavior between man and man. Since distrust is widespread where is the question of expecting help and cooperation? How can a person shorn off potent mental power valiantly carry out high level tasks? How will he get the golden opportunity of rising higher up in life in an all round manner?
Between man and man discontent and vile behavior has cropped up because of fraud, wiliness distrust, lack of cooperation and agitations of various types. As a result people face strife like wealthy becoming poor and educated behaving like illiterates. Majority of world humans akin to corpse and ghosts of the graveyard burn and get burnt, instill fear on others and themselves become terrorized, get agitated and are rendered discontented. Even if material comforts increase manifold what can they achieve? It is something different to see people outside full of wealth and sense pleasures. One maybe materially extremely wealthy akin to a billionaire yet in his own mind’s eye he will feel very low because innumerable problems and worries have surrounded him.
Today the lay public is ensnared by such situations the world over. In the name of development despite a gigantic increase of material comforts since our thinking, character and behavior reeks with despicable qualities whatever is taking place in our lives is akin to becoming even worse than that seen in the lives of those whom we call poor, illiterate and backward. We may insist on calling this progress but know for sure that it is nothing short of regression.
CONJOINED TO NEO CREATION THERE IS A DIRE NEED OF DESTRUCTION TOO
The goal of agriculture is to reap a good harvest. It is thus that humans, birds and animals get food. Even flies, cockroaches etc fill their tummies thus. This action is totally creative and there is not even an iota of intention to hurt or aim hardship at anyone. Yet the way this task commences something very different is viewed grossly and it seems that over here tasks of destruction and battering are being executed.
First the land is ploughed. Ploughed means land whose surface was smooth is dug up and rendered uneven. On seeing this we can say that a destructive and battering act has been executed. After this old grass, weeds, pebbles, stones etc are dug out and thrown away. Even here a gross superficial brain shall conclude hastily that what was dwelling in this land for a long time span has been exiled and that gathered ‘wealth’ is being thrown away. Despite all this a seer and farsighted person shall not find it difficult at all that there is no tainted sentiment behind all this upheaval and digging. In fact the ultimate goal is creation only. If we imbibe the principle of allowing to remain in existence all that which was already present before the hard labor of a farmer may have been saved yet he knows that without digging the soil it land cannot become soft and porous for water to seep right below and for roots to enter deep below the ground. In a gist we can say that all this so called hardheartedness is done for ultimate well being of all creatures. There is thus no need to censure the doer or author of all this.
At this hour of dawn of Era something of this sort is happening. At the commencement of Era Junction incidences of strife and pain swarm about like flies. Akin to lightning in the sky, ire of natural calamities shines forth and rises high. Man’s vile intellect is getting converted to tainted activities and its result is undergoing harassment. Thus people labor hard to save themselves from it. Despite this effort its atrocities continue merrily. Neither do mosquitoes die nor do flies get saved from kites. Rising struggle and dangers in every field of life can be witnessed in this manner.
In this auspicious hour of neo creation on seeing the reactions of these hardships at least once we gasp in despair saying that there should have been solutions for all the strife faced. Almighty God should have showered on us all joyous comforts and along with blessings should have augmented sense pleasures. Yet what actually takes place is bang opposite to this. How can this be labeled Era Creation wherein hardships rule the roost? In order to clarify this doubt one shall have to imbibe the art of farsighted inference and realize that akin to digging and battering land while tilling it the ultimate goal is to reap a rich harvest of crop. This exactly is what is meant by deep thinking about reactions of today’s actions that shall be noted in future times.
When we construct a building the aim is to reside there happily and comfortably. Buildings rise higher up from the ground yet its commencement is so complex that one directly viewing it thinks that a wrong erroneous method has been used. First a big crater is dug up and all the mud in it is removed. Yet the requirement was bag opposite to this. Actually a building is constructed by using bricks and cement on even ground but here in the beginning the even ground is dug up akin to a crater. Thus a superficial eye shall say it is nothing but a loss. It is futile to dig the ground and throw away the mud. Now in order to render the ground uniform and even this crater shall have to be filled with materials that are very expensive. This indeed is double foolishness. In fact it was better that instead of wasting effort and money of digging this crater and refilling it in a uniform manner the land that was previously uniform should have been used to build the walls of the building. An ordinary intellect will only think thus superficially and shall ‘pity’ those who dig a crater first. They will experience no qualms or compunction while mocking builders who give advice and method of digging a crater first.
Despite all this happening wise seers do not find it difficult at all to gauge reality. They know that in order to build a strong building the foundation must be very firm else the moment the weight of the building increases it shall be razed to the ground. The result shall be that whatever hard labor and wealth was used for construction shall get wasted. Walls shall get shattered and will crash down. Added to this one shall face insults and worries. No doubt it is true that whatever material and hard work was used to lay a firm foundation could have been used to make one more big room. Yet it is not wrong to say that the act of laying down a strong foundation of the building which appears ‘wasteful’ to the gross eye in actuality is most required. Without taking up this risk a long lasting, strong building cannot be constructed. Of course it is another matter if we wish to build a hut of wood, leaves etc that shall rot in a very short time.
Almighty Lord is now constructing a new building and at this hour of Era Junction is digging a firm foundation and filling it with materials full of strength. God in order to reap a rich harvest is enacting a well managed program. He is laboring to plough his field. Although the ‘frenzy’ of rendering an even land into an uneven one and digging out hoarded ‘wealth’ from it has taken over his psyche, yet say, what can be done? If we do not remove pebbles, weeds etc how can the new sowed seeds grow into saplings with roots that goes deep down into the soil? Hence God has to carry out a so called non required and non endearing act. By itself everyone is happy with creation and abhors destruction. Initially God too must be feeling thus but for attaining that which is endearing non endearing means need to be made used of.
A patient writhing agony due to a disease enters a hospital because he harbor hopes that a compassionate doctor there will aid in destroying his pain. But as soon as the patient gets admitted what he notes is bang opposite. Arrangements are made for surgery and operation. His diseased body is cut and opened up. Flesh and skin are cut up from his body. Blood starts dripping and it appears as though the doctors operating on him are cruel and hard hearted just as a wicked person attack innocents with ghastly weapons. A person with a gross vision on seeing this surgery feels it is wrong to believe that hospitals and doctors attached to it alleviate our pain out of compassion. Forget the poor patient’s woes being overcome, in fact the activities here are bang opposite. Thus those with such a gross superficial vision can only doubt the goodwill behind doctors setting up hospitals and clinics for patients experiencing painful diseases.
This doubt certainly does not arise in the minds of those who go deep down into the root cause and make efforts to understand the farsightedness and goodwill behind this so called ‘distasteful’ medical therapy. They are well aware that it is the rotting reeking pus in the pustule that is the main cause of pain and agony. If this pus is not removed it will poison nearby skin and muscles of the body. No doubt immediately pain can be diminished by administering anesthesia to the boil/pustule yet it cannot permanently cure the disease. Cure is not merely silencing the patient superficially. Even if for some moments the patient calms down yet the pus within shall continue to rot the skin and flesh. Thus risk and danger keep increasing and in fact one’s life is at stake under such dire situations. Thus a doctor is forced to take the decision of conducting an operation. In it there is no harshness or bad will. Even if the doctor’s own child is a patient he shall operate on him. Even in so called distasteful incidences are hidden far off joyous potentials and good will full of love.
In this dawning hour of Neo Creation majority of destructive sports are being noted the world over. Problems and hardships already were ruling the roost. Ere these were solved with apt solutions, the story would be different but over here the situation is akin to increase in scratching due to a leprosy attack. How can this be called Neo Creation? How can we say that Almighty God has incarnated as an Avatar? In order to find an answer to this skepticism we shall have to realize why and what truly is happening by thinking akin to a doctor operating on a pus filled pustule of a patient.
Due to a long lasting Dark Era a lot of dirt and rubbish has gathered. In every walk of life the world over, rotten elements have spread out. If this is allowed to remain as it is and instead material comforts are increased, desired results shall not be got. Gathered dirt shall not remain silent and shall render widespread its poisonous nature. This program of destruction shall rise so much that efforts made for creative tasks shall be rendered futile.
At night so much taint gathers which everyone knows as a result of which when we get up in the morning the first thing we do is to remove dirt. As soon as we get up we rush to the bathroom to pass urine and stools. We need to brush our teeth. We take a bath, wash our clothes and sweep all rooms of the house. Bathrooms are cleaned and all this takes place first thing in the morning. Only then the house becomes clean and happy to live in. the kitchen is warmed and we start cooking breakfast, lunch yet before this the cooking range, vessels etc need to be washed and cleaned. Else if we cook in a dirty kitchen the food will reek with foul stench because of immediate rotting. Those who eat food without passing urine, stools in the morning, without brushing teeth/gargling forget that the dirt of the mouth shall enter the stomach.
A gross superficial intellect will say that as soon as we get up in the morning we must eat food, apply make-up/cosmetics and rush for one’s daily chores. But when we see people first think of removing dirt and throwing certain things out of the house we wonder whether these people are attacked by insanity? Activities like evacuating food eaten previously as stools in the morning, throwing rubbish of the house into dust bins, giving stale leftover food to dogs and cleaning water pipes by flushing water from pots into it appear as though early in the morning one is throwing away things. It was previously thought that as soon as the sun rises joyous situation shall manifest and sacred boons shall come one’s way yet what is actually taking place is bang opposite. In fact every family member is immersed in removing dirt and rubbish.
Similarly we must realize that at the hour of Era Junction the process of removing dirt and rubbish elements the world over commences in full frenzy. On roads at dawn we see sweepers sweeping roads, cleaning waterways and carrying rubbish to big vans. First thing in the morning one visits toilets to pass stools and then bathe. Only then can one think of decorating and adorning one’s body.
Now that hour is drawing near when darkness and gloom spanning many centuries shall dwindle away to naught. The red light of dawn can clearly be seen. It is not wrong hence to expect flowers being showered down from the skies and fragrant perfume being sprayed everywhere. Yet when the actual scene is bang opposite one is amazed. Everywhere is spread out rubbish like elements. Since thus everyone’s first task is to remove this dirt it shall not be difficult to infer that Almighty God’s first endeavor shall be to ward off all taints. He certainly has no wish to spread foul odor in the world but yearns only to ultimately create a very clean sacred environment. If one yearns to reinstate what one likes that which is tainted must be removed first. This then can be understood as the 1st leg of an alarming rise in fearful situations the world over during the transitional period of Era Junction.
The aim of a gardener is to build a garden full of fragrant blooming flowers and luscious fruits. He thus immerses himself in this task. His only desire is that plants and trees growing in his garden render it radiantly beautiful. In it lies his deftness and success too. Yet if a gross superficial mind appraises his daily activities these actions shall appear bang opposite to the aim he has in mind i.e. beautifying the garden. In this very garden he labels weeds, grass and tiny wild plants useless and uproots them. Why does a compassionate gardener execute such harsh acts? Why does one who wishes neo creation take up destructive acts? If the aim of the gardener is to grow why does he uproot?
Governments are known to take up tasks of utility value like education, health, transport, production, agriculture etc yet they are also known to set up a police force with arrangements for prisons for punishment which definitely is an act of destruction. If they fail to set up the police force vile and criminal people shall cause so much destruction to the nation that all endeavors for progress and development shall beat a hasty retreat.
The lives of great Rishis and saints are based on a sense of self surrender towards great goals in day to day living and yet they too for a certain time span enter dark lonely forests and perform terrific perform penance. They have to light fire there to ward off attack of ferocious beasts, get protection from shivering cold etc. they were known to use weapons too for self defense. For protecting theism and aptness it was most required that even great Rishis/saints use destructive means. Hence there is no reason why the creator/God should not imbibe those means to uproot undesirable elements in his garden which to a gross superficial eye appears destructive and harsh. This world is weaved using the threads of what is good and bad too. It is an admixture of demigods and demons. Under such situations one class has to be encouraged and the other denounced. On the one hand the sun is the very life force of earth yet it also kills via its energy worms/germs etc that are nurtured by rotting rubbish. Ere the sun did not destroy germs/worms’ poison shall reign and thus the very existence of plants and human beings shall be at stake. Although the sun encourages life yet it destroys too and sometimes destruction via it exceeds creation. The sun who gives us light and energy does not fail in its duty to destroy dark gloominess of our world.
No doubt creation rises high yet a fact conjoined to it is that it is the greatness of divinity of demigods that is being augmented. In tandem with increasing greatness it is very much required that what is unwholesome must be destroyed. The aim of God’s Avatars has always been crystal clear. They play the dual role of uprooting unrighteousness and replacing it with righteousness. In Lord Rama’s Avatar both the demonic Lanka of demon Ravan was destroyed and The Golden Era based culture of Ayodhya was nurtured in a big way. The same happened in Krishna’s Avatar. After the deadly Mahabharat War the heavy burden on earth was lifted. Lord Krishna was also responsible for creative tasks like protecting Vrindavan, augmenting the cow population, establishing righteousness in his kingdom and transforming Sudamapuri. On the one hand the Wheel of Righteousness of Lord Buddha uprooted malefic influences vile Tantrik acts there he helped render widespread love and goodwill the world over. On the one hand Mahatma Gandhi warded off British Rule and their oppression there he imbued free India’s environment with joy. The great activities of Avatars have been 2 fold. Half their divine energy is used for fighting undesirable elements in the world and the other portion is used to establish righteousness and ethics in the world.
The hands of Dronacharya held Vedas but on his shoulders rested bows and arrows. On the one hand demigods fight battles with demons but great devotees are blessed also by them. The government gives us benefits but can also mete out punishment. On cogitating seriously over the world’s management it seems natural and most required that conjoined to augmenting greatness is uprooting of undesirable unwholesome principles. This is exactly what is happening today. In this time span of Era Junction fearful situations of destruction akin to dark clouds are thundering loud in the sky. Along with this rests the definite promise of joyous potentials in the form of a radiant future in the world.
INSTEAD OF GETTING SCARED OF WORLD FEARFUL SITUATION WE MUST THINK OF OVERCOMING THEM
The scene of death seems very bitter and cruel. It renders near dear ones full of anguish and sorrow. A body that was mobile just a moment back is now lifeless and a sad cremation is given to it. Relatives either cremate or bury this dead body which is done akin to placing a rock on one’s bosom. When the dead one goes away sadness and sorrow takes over the home and family. Loving memories of the departed soul flit past the mental screen. Whatever activities were carried out previously by this dead person either gets stalled or someone else has to do the same. If we view this entire episode it seems that death is definitely a divine curse. Almighty God should not have designed death. Even a child who makes a toy with its own hands will not break it but how did it enter the psyche of God to render his beautiful creation ugly and painful via the terrible act of death?
This discussion has been taken up keeping in mind bitter incidences of strife taking place in this hour of Era Junction or Yuga Sandhi. Here we are pondering over the fact whether the present world problems can be troubleshot without destructive upheavals manifesting first. Cannot Almighty God with his Divine Energy convert what is unwholesome into goodness without first ushering in bitter harsh situations? Cannot miraculous transformations set in?
In order to unearth the answer to this question we shall have to understand deeply and visualize with farsightedness widespread process of transformation attached to cosmic laws of creation of this world. In the cycle of nature there is a definite plan of birth, growth, becoming old and dying ultimately. If this were absent its other option would be balance and steadiness. All materials and creatures eternally would remain in one monotonous state. If death was stalled birth too would stop. If birth was allowed to continue and death was stopped then in 1 century itself planet earth would be rendered incapable of sustaining even only human beings forget innumerable other creatures. In steadiness no doubt there is ample comfort yet the beauty of that which is new and zest for transformation would totally end. Everywhere would rein aridness and akin to lifeless corpse creatures would pass their time in dry monotony. It maybe that Almighty God who loves movements of divine sports did not find such a corpse like life endearing and hence laid down the cosmic law of creation, propagation and annihilation or death. Since this law is in place the process of birth and death too is going on in the entire world.
The physical body too is a machine which as time lapses by becomes old and useless. Since utility value ends things are not allowed to remain as they are but that they are melted and molded again anew. The same holds true for a human body. When all parts age the body cannot function aptly and the creature living in too experiences a lot of discomfort. There is only one way in which this ugliness and undesirable form be removed/transformed and that is rebirth.
Old people are generally sad and ugly but a child is beautiful and happy. Almighty Lord appears hard hearted and angry with aged senior citizens. Yet in actuality it is his goodwill and farsightedness that is at work. He manifests his deft skills by converting ugliness into beauty and uselessness into utility value. His very nature is full of creativity. In order to render it ceaseless the creative process of converting rubbish into fertilizers and with its aid blooming new plants is at work. No doubt during the phase of upheavals in Era Transformation there is immediate ‘cruelty’ perceived yet it has certainly not been enacted by a vile intellect. This is because behind it is at work ushering in of joyous eternal situations in future.
In such situations utility diminished manifold and what was unwholesome became widespread. In these times the nature of world individuals and society can be looked upon as a withered body of an aged person which neither experiences happiness itself nor can give joy to others. There is no hope of this tattered body ever rejuvenating in future too. Very old machine parts and vessels used in kitchens demand repairs yet they do not work optimally. Under such circumstances a wise person prefers melting them and molding them anew. If an arrangement is made to transform an old wailing and sorrowful person into a laughing, frolicking and beautiful child we must accept that the one (God) designing this is full of goodwill. The activity of one who melts and molds appears insane. It may seem that this task is destructive yet a wise intellect has no problems in accepting that this effort verily is imbued with neo creation that paves the way for ultimate joy and happiness.
On noting these days wrath of natural calamities and human strife it should appear distasteful and full of agonizing pain. Yet there is no need to despair and worry. No doubt it seems strange that gardens are first shorn of weeds etc and agricultural land is first dug up before seeds are sown yet the one who executes all this with deep faith says that all this is done keeping in mind manifest of joyous potentials in the ultimate analysis. Maybe on an immediate basis it is labeled ‘breaking and shattering’ and that its doer is called a ‘destroyer’.
Farsightedness in a very natural manner actions and possibilities by saying that we must not walk in that direction which in future shall give us anguish and know for sure, that this is true understanding. Thus it does not face censure or hardship. These then are gentlemanly actions which are joyous and eulogized too. Bang opposite to this is a set of people who lack farsightedness. They can be called human beasts. Beasts always think about immediate benefits only and cannot infer about future reactions. Despite lovingly teaching them they fail to understand. They only understand the language of punishment. Thus whenever a cowboy wishes to convey something to his group of animals, he does so using a stick. A horse is made to understand by the rider using his heels, reins and whip. Ere the beast could understand the language of respect and could decipher farsightedly the results of acting aptly or otherwise or what is beneficial and what is not maybe the horse rider would not require the help of a whip which appears harsh.
Not only does a beastly nature reside in the body but that many a time it oozes in excess. Thus such a person fails to heed sound advice or requests. Thus in order to rectify him punishments have to be meted out. Without this, neither can tame animals be made to work nor can we save ourselves from jungle beasts’ ferocious attacks. It is such class of people that required chains and weapons so as to tame them. Although the acts of punishment and censure appear hard hearted yet say, what can one do? Arrangements definitely have to be made to hang unethical judges and term dictatorial rulers as shameless. In it where on the one hand there is the yearning to transform a very useless state into a positive one there another aim is that others learn a lesson from all this. Those who fail to realize what dire results have to be faced in future on executing unethical activities they get a chance to realize not to walk on this erroneous path after witnessing this scheme of punishment being put into action on errant people.
The difference in the designing of the human and animal’s body is clear. Despite this it is amazing to note that the inner nature of majority of human beings is molded with beastly tendencies. They think only of fleeting benefits and selfish gains. They carry out actions only to fulfill transient desires. Ere this unruliness is allowed to continue anarchy shall spread everywhere and the terror of a punishing stick shall destroy political governance and culture. Hence it is most required that beastly tendencies get warded off. The nature of true religion is to augment goodwill and control rules the roost in the principle imbibed by the governing authorities. There is no other option but to use a fair bit of finances for police, courts of law, jails and weapons along with meting out punishment to those who err. In order to educate those human beasts the importance of harboring goodwill to all there is no other solution but to take recourse to the system of meting out punishment.
There was a tradition existing in ancient times that when someone was hanged on the guillotine or given other forms of punishment the lay public were invited in big crowds via sounding drums and conches to witness this ghastly terrorizing scene. Efforts and arrangements were made so that people would gather in large mobs for seeing all this. Discussions used to spread like wild fire and laymen would realize how terrible repercussions have to be undergone of unethical criminal acts are carried out by them. In the constitution of human beings such an open exhibition is going on yet nature’s management is continuing as usual. Widespread scenes of destruction forces mankind to experience heartbreaking burns and they realize that there is no place for their whims and fancies. There definitely exists rule of an invisible power/authority and that it not only gives boons but has made necessary arrangements for meting out punishment too. Behind natural calamities and fearful situations cropping up due to human in fighting a big cause is that the world public becomes aware ceaselessly of the wrath of Almighty God. In the 20 years of Yuga Sandhi or Era Junction (1980 AD to 2000 AD) great transformations shall ensue but majority of them shall remain invisible. This is because transformation shall roll in not in materials but in human faith/aspiration. Aspirations are subtle and not visible to the gross eye hence upheavals in this arena is impossible to understand and written about by anyone. Discussions shall always take place regarding visible situations etc. One set of incidences of that which is visible shall be uprooting of vileness. The second shall be augmenting and reinstating of that which is great and wholesome. In the first case destructive acts shall get executed to remove the undesirable and useless and in the second case a strong foundation shall be laid down for neo creation of sacred sentiments.
Both destruction and neo creation are going on in full swing. It can be compared to child delivery pain wherein hair raising sight of blood dripping and writhing hardship being faced is noted. Along with this the mother also zestfully visualizes the beautiful face of her baby about to be born in her mind’s eye. She makes future plans of nourishing and nurturing her baby that shall be born. Similar to both anguish and joy being experienced by a mother during child birth similar are the feelings experienced during 20 years of Era Junction. The anguishing upheaval of child birth finishes generally in a few hours. Yet the ushering in of a New Era akin to child birth takes place in about 20 years which if looked at from the standpoint of weight age, importance and its all pervasiveness it is not a very long time span.
Over here we are discussing the activity of destruction. It is not necessary that only that which is undesirable enters the noose of destruction process. Even gentlemanliness has to face harassment due to pressurizing situations. Along with wheat even chaff gets pounded. Along with dry even that which is a bit wet gets burnt. In order to destroy microbes inducing diseases medicine is taken which also attacks healthy cells. These exceptions no doubt go on yet ordinarily what happens is in a major way only wheat gets powdered, dry gets burnt and poisonous germs die. At the hour of upheaval in the destructive sports of nature the underlying sole aim is to destroy only that which is undesirable. It is another story that a few others get entangled too.
Of course there is a very valid reason why those who appear innocent get entangled when destructive activities are in full swing. This entire cosmos is bound to the thread of soul existence. Its direction takes place on the basis of combined responsibility. When all machine parts work properly the watch too works aptly. Similarly it is the collective responsibility of all to render the world aptly advanced and render society truly cultured. Very much akin to personal joy-peace each human being must make effort for world progress and prosperity. Conjoined to human existence is that God given responsibility wherein similar to the manner in which man personally takes pain to render his personal life joyous both now and in future, he should also work for world welfare for rendering the garden called this world beautiful and peaceful.
A gardener sweeps both his own house and the garden too and he cooks food for himself and gives water/fertilizer nourishment to plants/trees in his garden too. Very similar to this man should not limit himself to advancement of his soul but should carry out the righteous duty of world well being too. Anyone who ignores this duty is in a way a criminal. No doubt attacking is a crime but know for sure that those who are irresponsible and reckless too have to undergo punishment even if such people had no intention to attack anyone.
When combined responsibilities are not adhered to man becomes a culprit and criminal and as a result all those people undergo punishment that harbored indolence in executing the duty of rendering this world joyous and peaceful. No doubt in courts of law set up by human beings a person indifference and disregard are not punished as a type of crime yet in God’s eyes it is labeled as disobeying his divine command. Under such circumstances those who appear innocent visibly are actually culprits indirectly.
Our righteous duty towards society just does not end if we aver from attacking because if you do not make efforts to stop others’ attacks it is akin to crossing the boundaries of human ethics and values. If someone is committing suicide but people nearby just watch silently, in front of one’s eyes murders, rapes are carried out by someone but we fail to intervene and that no efforts are made of complaining to the police or stop others when one gets information of someone scheming to carry out a crime, then this silent ‘innocent’ witness shall be labeled a criminal and shall definitely face censure and due punishment.
Hence from the above standpoint may without any reason those rare exceptions enter the noose of destructive situations during Era Transformation yet majority are accused of the fact that when in the world undesirable and tainted situations cropped up people remained silent witnesses instead of intervening like cogs in the wheel to overcome these taints. Under such situations if even they have to face the wrath of Almighty God we cannot say that ‘innocents’ were punished.
In the government’s judiciary there is a law that metes out punishment for not executing collective responsibilities. Collective fines have to be paid amongst denizens of criminal arena. Majority of these who are penalized who themselves have not committed any fine. Yet social justice opines that as per citizens’ duties every person must be alert and active enough to see to it that in their area peace prevails, that they avert crimes and endeavor to help those in strife and pain. In a certain way those who ignore this duty get labeled as culprits and are thus forced to pay collective fines as a form of punishment meted out to them. During times of war people from all over the country are enlisted in the army and those who refuse are labeled culprits and sent to jail too.
When strife augments the world over it is definitely called an hour of catastrophe and disaster. At such times one must carry out one’s duties to ward it off to the extent that by ignoring one’s personal comforts one must participate in obstructing world destructive situations that appear in its ferocious form. This then is our responsibility during times of world strife. Akin to self protection collectively protecting world society and its denizens too is the duty of every citizen of the world. The government certainly cannot take care of everything. Hence it is expected of each citizen that he/she helps overcome anarchy and undesirable elements. It is thus that anyone can be forced to become a witness in court cases if he/she has information and if anyone refuses they can be imprisoned too.
Destruction taking place during the phase of Era Transformation could be looked upon albeit superficially as divine mismanagement, hard heartedness, revenge etc yet this is not so in reality. In fact God’s ultimate aim is neo creation and he adores apt world balance. God appears as an avatar in this world so as to reinstate true righteousness. Thus it is required that first unrighteousness lording over the world gets uprooted. Right from cleaning, swabbing to lighting fire, some germs and microbes do die. Yet since the aim is to clean this ‘killing’ is inevitable. The chief mission of great Avatars is neo creation. A portion of this encompasses destruction of unrighteousness hence this preamble of destructive actions is witnessed by us all. Yet all this is executed with the supreme goal of rendering the world optimally balanced and creating a radiant world future. Hence instead of getting scared of such disastrous situations there is an imperative need of combating them by helping like cogs in the wheel in uprooting vile activities the world over.
WE MUST DEEPLY PONDER NOT ONLY OVER GROSS BUT SUBTLE WORLD ACTIVITIES TOO
This world is categorized into 2 halves. One is directly visible and the other is subtly indirect. Within visible materials an inspiring energy is at work which cannot be seen by our gross eye. On noting its potential and mobility an inference can be made that in the deep cave of nature/Prakriti is at work waves of sound, heat and light. This can be called subtle and indirect. Although the body carries out various functions yet within it works the subtle Prana Energy of consciousness. The same holds true for planet earth. It is classified in a 3 fold manner viz. water, land and sky/space. Yet a very minor portion of it is visible. What movements are taking place in the womb of earth? What exactly is happening in ocean bed areas? How much matter of sky is moving about in a gaseous state? This information cannot be unveiled by an ordinary brain or means because in a certain way all this is subtle and invisible.
What we know about the directly visible is very miniscule. In comparison to the gross the potential of subtle/invisible is innumerable times more potent. No one gives importance to a fistful of mud yet fission of one atom can emit mind boggling energy. In the sea ebb and flow of water waves is seen merely but very few people know that in order to transport water to every nook and corner of the ocean floor its invisible nature and upheavals play an important role. The same holds true for the sky. It appears hollow and empty yet wind, rain, Prana Energy and other very important principles dwell in it in gigantic amounts. Ere creatures did not accrue their benefits then life’s cart would not budge from its place.
Over here we are discussing the subtle world. For every task generally we take help of the directly visible world and we believe it to be the be all and end all of life and we nourish and transform it. Despite this great thinking people never forget that the potential of subtle world is extraordinary and that we ignore it our condition becomes akin to a child playing with toys. An under developed aborigine dwelling in the forest looks upon grass and plants as ultimate wealth yet a scientist lords over entire nature and becomes the master of limitless energy. This can be called information regarding power of the subtle world and miracle of attaining it.
Over here we are discussing the subtle invisible world. We all are witnesses of materials on land, movements of various creatures, various types of wealth and comforts. We also make due efforts to convert obstacles into conduciveness in this arena but we forget that behind the visible the subtle cause too plays an important role and that something has to be done to understand and solve problems there. The result of this error is that despite making efforts problems are not solved and our labor turns futile. We are thus exposed to tiredness, despair and irritability. Thus we must make it a habit of diving deep and understand that apart from divine deep in the ocean to find pearls there is no other option. Merely by walking up and down the sea shore we can get only sea shells and sand particles.
A disease is directly visible akin to the medicine administered. Both combat each other. Both are challenging each other since time immemorial but medicines taste defeat and diseases gain victory. This shall go on until we do not understand the invisible cause from where poison manifests and waste our energies due to lack of self control. In order to ward off majority of diseases our taste buds need to be controlled and sanctified a great deal. All this is applicable also to financial crisis, family quarrels, social agitations and other such problems. If we change our psyche external world situations too change. As long as we pay no heed to this bare fact, problems, dangers and strife shall rule us all. They will refuse to budge from our lives.
In present times in this directly visible world within our individual and world social life an environment of downfall and defeat has ensnared us all. In the past times within the arena of economics, intellect and modern science extraordinary progress was noted. On this basis joyous comforts augmented so much that in this history of our world never has this been seen previously. Despite this world individuals are becoming lowly in many ways. There is no area of world society where speed breakers are not found. Everywhere cyclones of danger are mobile in break neck speed. We are ignoring the process of finding solutions in a collective cooperative manner. We think of nothing else but befriending people shyly and then robbing them and else show one’s fist to terrorize others. Our thinking reeks only with taking aid of crime/in-ethics and running down others in society so as to boss over them. Thus there is no hope that such vile people will help others in society to lead lives of joy, apt culture and truly prosperous. There is no dearth of intellectual people. No doubt in every walk of life resides intellectually talented people yet it is akin to try and sew 2 meters of cloth but in the process waste 4 meters of it. The result of human authored strife shall any day henceforth lead to world downfall. War frenzy can anytime forcefully incite world humans to commit mass suicides. Clouds of total destruction are looming large in the form of uncontrolled population explosion, pollution, emission of poisonous radiations, crimes, war frenzy etc.
It is not as though sweet/bitter methods are not being used to solve world problems. Everyone no doubt is making efforts to get saved from destruction and finding basis for world uplifting yet instead of solutions coming within their grasp they are running miles away. Under such situations despair hangs on our heads in such a way that man stares helplessly at destiny. The importance of human effort sometimes becomes an overstatement.
Over here naturally our attention is drawn to the subtle and it seems that as though there is a thorn in a very sensitive area which induces situations of grief. No solution is thus allowed to reap success. From this viewpoint spiritual seers/Self Realized Gurus have always been sacredly sentimental yet look upon that which is directly visible as inert and a veil. The subtle world has been looked upon by them as a conscious inspiration and they opine that consciousness is the foundation of the world’s environment and mental state is the mother of external worldly circumstances. Factually this proclamation is 100% percent true. When faith that affects our thinking, character and behavior gets distorted every arena of life faces dangerous situations. For compact solutions we shall have to wait till we do not make great efforts to ward off distortion in our faith and aspiration. Regarding this a small effort akin to a tiny flame lamp in rank darkness has been made by the Prajna Abhiyan or movement to sanctify the world human intellect.
Within the periphery of the gross world human faith can be given due importance. Yet it is not total and complete. Behind the gross visible world dwells the subtle invisible world and movements/upheavals taking place in it affects the gross world. What we need to know is whether tainted elements have or have not entered the subtle world and if it has been distorted is it poisoning the gross world?
Seasonal influences are seen in the form of heat, cold, wetness etc yet these are but results manifesting due to rotation/revolution movements of earth and sun. Without understanding this we will be unaware of the mysteries of seasonal changes. So much rains down from interstellar space on earth that in comparison to combined attainments of land and water it is manifold. There was a time when so called tangible proof oriented believers lacked faith in the existence of subtle energies and powers yet the very foundation today of advancing modern science is oriented around understanding the subtle and attaining it.
It is only when we conjoin spiritual science to modern material science that compact science of divine wisdom manifests. It is on the basis of this correlation that we understand that which is worth knowing and we attain that which is worth attaining. Within the realm of today’s dire problems lest we make efforts to understand and reform distortions of the subtle world it shall be called farsightedness with true discrimination. If the pustule on the skin is not getting cured one must be farsighted enough to get the blood of the patient examined. If we fail to ward off mosquito attacks using ordinary means we must search for sludge and remove it. In reality a downfall and defeat and delusions and distortions are reactions of problems prevalent in the subtle world.
Those who are capable of understanding with faith the subtle invisible world must research into poisonous elements spreading in the invisible world and thus solve complex world problems. It is this venom that is augmenting unwholesomeness in world human psyche/thinking and is inflicting on us the wrath of natural calamities. When it rains earth becomes lush green. Water forests merge into each other. The reason why leaves fall off from trees in winter and burning heat has to be endured in summer must be searched for in the subtle arena. When all efforts fail to ward off visible taints in the gross world we must search the subtle world. One has to look for the reason of cancer by going deeper into the disease. Does a puppet doll ever dance on its’ own? It is in fact the skill of the puppeteer holding the strings attached to the puppet doll that induces the latter to frolic about.
These days in order to understand the ire of natural calamities, downfall, defeat and destruction the state and condition of the subtle world must be deeply understood. Efforts must be made to reform it and render it well balanced. Today the stature of world individuals and future of this world is becoming alarmingly worrisome. It can be looked upon akin to a flow of epidemics resulting from poison emanating from the subtle world. It is hence best that what is directly visible is not looked upon as the be all and end all of life and that we delve deep into the subtle world too. In order to ward off taints spreading in the subtle arena and replacing it with sacred auspiciousness solutions must be unveiled and thus due efforts must be made too in this direction. In order to solve complex problems which so far have remained unsolved, our attention should veer towards the invisible subtle world. Thus if efforts are made to render well balanced the subtle realm we can say we have taken the right decision.
INTELLECTUALISM OF THE WORLD MUST TAKE RECOURSE TO SACRED IDEALS AND ETHICS
Mother Nature or Prakriti has given basic knowledge to all living beings so that they can execute all bodily activities. In their deep recesses there is no dearth of brilliant skills and glories. From this standpoint they are capable and prosperous. But in the absence of capability why would anyone waste their talent in misuse? We cannot call nature miserly and it is farsighted. Nature has always imbibed a social standpoint wherein each one is given only that much that it can handle/manage. In this test man has always tried to march ahead and accordingly latching on to the lap of nature he has succeeded in attaining more and more precious glories.
Super world annihilation or Mahapralaya stares at us menacingly because we have taken dangerous steps resulting in air pollution, nuclear radiations, water pollution, insane milking of energy fuel founts, uncontrolled use of sense merriment comforts and frenzied over production of destructive weapons which induces competition amongst countries to hoard more and more of them. On the one hand highly intellectual scientists the world over stare at the problem of how to obstruct this rank misuse and on the other hand how to overcome dangerous world situations that are resulting due to it? One more question that needs to be answered is that in order to render mankind more happy/prosperous a new arena of research needs to be entered into. What methodology should be used for this and how to tie up its ethical limits? Both questions stand in front of the human intellect and say that if this is the solution demarcated science after renouncing its nature of nurturing the world shall turn into terrible Rudra and thus the Tandav Dance of World Super Annihilation or Mahapralaya shall commence. This definitely shall take place. Man can only be given limited comforts. Going beyond the limits of aptness cannot be tolerated. Hence according to intellectual thinkers to give a correct direction to a light string swinging between destruction and advancement is that task on which rests solution of the present and demarcation of future.
Today’s biggest problem is how to encourage those who use things aptly and obstruct those who insist on misusing. In order to find this solution a conclusion can be made only after we dive deep into the problem akin to diving into the ocean and churning interstellar space. Thus they shall realize that we imbibe great-ism and under its umbrella take decisions at all levels. There is only one high stature specialty of human existence viz. faith in sacred ideals. It is this that has rendered him supremely great in the arena of thinking and given him great activities like generous hearted cooperation in the social arena. Thus mankind’s glory has been raised sky high. The more this special quality goes unheeded more hardships shall have to be endured and further fearful world destructive situations shall gather momentum. Such great activities in ancient terminology were called ‘spirituality’. If someone finds this word strange none will object if we rename it ‘farsighted idealism’. This is that very test based on which errors that crept in utilization of progress that has taken place till today can be reformed and whatever has been attained must be wholesomely used for world well being. Along with this by imbibing this very basis apt decisions must be taken regarding the direction of the sentimental flow of modern science.
In the world of matter modern science has showcased limitless miracles. Henceforth its task shall be positively influence human thinking, character, personality and world traditions. They must render naught illusions and undesirable elements in these arenas in such a way akin to attaining honor/credit while being labeled the foundation of research into reality while giving us data regarding the true inherent nature of the material world and in this manner it shouldered a great responsibility successfully. This service of modern science in comparison to attainments placed before the world in the past many centuries shall prove to be infinitely more important. Swami Vivekananda had said: If any religion of the world fails the test of modern scientific laws must be destroyed. The more speedily these useless blind beliefs and misguiding traditions of religions are uprooted the better. After this, all that shall remain will be rendered very bright, eternal and truly worth imbibing. In reality the combination of science and spirituality, wealth and high stature, power/authority and humility and intellect and imbibing of ethics in this era shall be looked upon as the biggest miracle. Thinking that has taken over the scientific realm must imbibe this era’s righteousness.
In the beginning days if the Scientific Era only the existence of matter was accepted and it was said that consciousness has no independent existence. The belief then was that the world is matter based. All units termed inert-conscious were in fact matter only. Hence its destiny too is inert like matter. Yet today the hour has arrived wherein this thinking needs to be corrected. Research studies conducted in the past 2 centuries has evolved the belief that consciousness does have its independent existence. It can be viewed as separate units in creatures yet its’ all encompassing form spans the entire cosmos. Very much akin to nature the periphery and potency of consciousness is infinite. Not only this but that because consciousness id senior the attainments of this realm in a comparative manner is much more manifold. An engine/machine may be very powerful yet a driver imbued with consciousness is most required to run it efficiently. Even so called automatic machines too require directions from a human being. In the same way right from directing various activities to world management, an invisible conscious cosmic energy is at work.
The stream of science called Ecology in full throttle and with total faith has commenced proving that conjoined to nature is not merely energy and activity but a separate act too has cast a cover over it which can be said to be imbued with specialties like farsightedness, rendering apt world balance, imbibing wholesomeness and joyous possibilities. This specialty is not found in inert matter. Not only is the existence of this process being proved but also its potent disciplining nature. In this direction even other streams of modern science like Parapsychology, Metaphysics etc by standing in the front row have started accepting this proof as authentic. Circumstances are fast changing. The great scientific thinker Albert Einstein during his final days in this world had accepted he was a semi theist and had started accepting the existence and supremacy of consciousness. Right from then till today a lot has happened. That too it is such which opines that potency of consciousness is infinitely more powerful and of greater utility value than potential embedded in matter. In ancient parlance cosmic consciousness was called Almighty God and its individual existence was called the conscious soul. Now it has become well nigh much more difficult for modern science to challenge the existence of cosmic consciousness and individual consciousness if compared to how they unanimously challenged the same a century back.
It is beyond all doubt that in comparison to the world of inert matter unearthed so far the realm of consciousness oozes much more with energy. In matter there are only various forces and activities whereas in consciousness such potential of much higher stature exist that aid in the wholesome usage of matter. Not only this it possesses some other specialties wherein by helping humans to give up beastliness pervading their thinking, sentiments, faith and aspirations they are rendered full of high stature sensitivity. Thus such human beasts get transformed into gentlemen, super men, saints, reformers, Rishis and messengers of God. It goes without saying that it is such great personalities that are termed supremely glorious of their times in the entire world. By following their high sacred ideals many attain the zest, light and credit for becoming truly great. It is crystal clear that if in one pan of a weighing scale we place all material grandeur like wealth, exotic clothes, power of education, art etc and in the other pan we place great personalities/character of saintly glorious people the pan that has gentlemanliness, supremacy of soul etc shall be heavier and pan of material wealth shall become light as a feather. If from the annals of world history we delete the names of Jesus Christ, Zoroaster, Magini, Buddha, Gandhi, Lincoln, Confucius, Aristotle, Vivekananda etc it shall be rendered orphaned and helpless. The hour has arrived wherein we do not limit ourselves to building powerful technology, unearthing scientific data and proof only but that we make potent efforts to help people imbibe brilliant talent skills of high stature. Of course for this help of modern science is most required.
As times lapses by this fact becomes clearer that in order to augment greatness in this world science and spirituality must work in tandem at every step. There was a time previously when spiritual philosophy in a lone manner generated those beliefs, aspirations and zest which leaned towards greatness. In those times sensitive mediums of literature, art etc totally accepted and encouraged spirituality. But today since inert matter has become the be all and end all of life, how can a foundation be laid that imbibes aspirations/faith which sanctifies man’s thinking process and character? Thus in its absence how can great leaders manifest in the world? And if these are in miniscule minority how can the world be managed optimally, how can gentlemanliness manifest and how can world neo creation take place?
These questions shall have to be answered by science because ancient spirituality due to its atheism oriented direct proof based principles and related weaknesses has become withered and old. Hence no miracle can be expected in present world circumstances. Its usage is limited to removing present day ruins and in its place constructing a new building with a firm foundation. It is the Lord Hanuman represented by modern science that shall have to rejuvenate religion which today is on its deathbed. This responsibility shall be handed over to those people who by using available means create a greatness based environment that gives due training for it but that such solutions shall be unveiled which via bodily rejuvenation and rendering brilliant our mental center convert ordinary laymen into great personalities.
ONLY IF WHOLESOME USAGE IS ENCOURAGED, WORLD TRANSFORMATION SHALL HARBINGER IN
Humans are vaults of infinite energy. Yet only a very miniscule portion of it is used in bodily activities. The remaining lies dormant and latent. If even sharp instruments are not used for a long time span, they start rusting. If every part of talent/skill remains unused man somehow lives life akin to some mad person moving round in circles. Yet whenever his enthusiasm rises high alertness, zeal, zest, diving deep, yearning to eat and drink etc start exhibiting miraculous feats. Man reaches great heights and under even ordinary circumstances executes such miraculous feats which can only be called mind boggling.
The past 3 centuries can be termed the phase of soul awakening even if in the material arena it was limited. Wherever energy is used it showcases its effects. In the direction of material advancement its leanings got conjoined, research was conducted and it got ready the old cast of direct proof by molding it into a new philosophy. When newness springs forth with new zest its results too are outstanding. In the name of development came forth in front of the world materialism and direct proof in a big way and it influenced world humans. Inventions created piles of means of comforts. In the name of intellectualism so much information was unearthed which could render anyone a bloated egotist and this has actually been witnessed, the world over. By itself unearthing information is worth lauding and should be encouraged. Thus credit of generating progress is given to those who manifested this enthusiasm and effort.
APT USAGE VERSUS MISUSE
Something very important needs to be discussed here. And that is choosing between wholesome usage and misuse. Whenever selfishness and lack of farsightedness combine, we think of only one thing and that is amass as many things as possible quickly and keep enjoying it as much as possible. Hasty childish people do exactly this. They are in no condition to use whatever they have in great tasks with a sense of steadfastness. They act akin to a person who by hook or by crook try and remove as many golden eggs from a hen’s tummy by immaturely cutting up its stomach.
If anything is used wholesomely we can benefit ourselves and help others benefit too yet if these things are misused it is akin to only one tiny lit matchstick that burns to ashes an entire village. In progressive centuries no doubt we achieved a lot but in the absence of farsightedness we failed to use it aptly and instead it was misused so awfully that today in the entire world we stare at cloudy situations of danger.
Lest the welfare of political rulers and wealthy class were not given supreme weight age today the stature of world lay public would have reached zenith heights. When machines were designed to help man in various tasks they should have been made in small sizes. Thus with less hard work, in a short time span man would have got an opportunity to procure basic means for apt living. Further extra time that remained could have been used for artistic talent and render everyone more capable in every field of life. The result of this would have been that everyone would live happy blissful lives. None would remain jobless and none would get the chance to say that they did not get an opportunity to contribute towards personal development and multifaceted advancement of world society. Despite this misuse is but misuse and thus because of it nectar too turns perilously venomous.
THE TRUE RESULTS OF APT UTILIZATION OF THINGS
Lest intellectualism that today is immersed in setting up big cities everywhere was instead diverted in making plans of setting up advanced villages we would have witnessed small self dependent advanced rural areas everywhere. Neither thus would urban areas get over populated, become dirty and endure all forms of distortions and nor due to talent from villages running away to urban areas rural areas get rendered withered and depleted.
Whether in self or public regions wars should have been equally declared everywhere as a big crime. Just like small Village Panchayats (governing councils) International Panchayats too could have solved disputes. Thus weapons in limited measure would have remained in the hands of the police force or International Panchayats and nothing like what is seen today would have been noted ere untold measure of wealth and human resources were not wasted in designing and amassing destructive weapons. Only if wealth power was utilized for augmenting literacy, designing factories that operate smoothly, growing new trees etc then by using energy for creative endeavors that is today misused for waging wars so much could have been attained which would be astounding and mind boggling.
Ere the goal of education was not merely to render people clerks and officers and was instead used aptly in designing solutions in the social aspects of public life and social management everyone the world over would be educated, well cultured and would use their capabilities in such a way that everywhere a zest for development would have spread its wings. Only after a literate person educated at least 2 illiterate people so as to get a letter of recommendation for a very responsible high post today’s problem of widespread illiteracy would have been solved. If industry training was conjoined to schools and colleges compulsorily no complaints of joblessness and poverty would have been heard.
Press and film fraternity/industry influences the public psyche in an extraordinary manner. If for these 2 gifts of science a discipline in the form of printing, filming only that which wholesomely influences everyone’s thinking then the requirement of multifaceted education of mankind could have easily been fulfilled. They would have succeeded in rendering the laymen knowledgeable and highly cultured.
SOLUTION FOR WORLD PROBLEMS COULD HAVE BEEN THUS TOO
Those possessing the wealth of a brilliant intellect too are scientists in a certain sense. Various institutions and systems of the government and society work as per their directions and pressure. Lest social vile traditions and individual unethical activities/behavior were vehemently opposed then the energy saved from getting wasted could have been deployed for great wholesome world tasks. Thus we would fail to see crimes and unethical behavior lording over us. If the laymen were given freedom to live a life of average stature we would not see poverty raising its hood anywhere. Everyone would thus have lived a life of unity and equality. Thus no craters of poverty would have been seen nor hills of wealth been built. Everyone would thus have attained an equal opportunity to rise in life. Everyone would hence have eulogized the intellectual and scientific progress made in the last few centuries and with its apt usage every particle of earth would have been glorified.
People take up vile habits of drug addiction, alcohol inebriation etc simply because they are given freedom to do so. Ere its production was disallowed, those who indulged in them were duly punished, none would show zest for undergoing a slow paced suicide. Since people would have saved themselves from this noose from the mental standpoint they would have become well balanced and would protect themselves from all kinds of censure and downfall in life. Such type of varied trends are conjoined to the above mentioned tainted addictions which have become one with man’s daily living. Vile activities that augment sexual lewdness and lust have become part and parcels of the world of fashion. Decoration, make-up, beauty aids etc contribute to all this. Untold amount of wealth is wasted in hoarding ornaments. If rising intellectualism had dared opposed all this wastage, explain to people its dangers, then lavish marriages that make us poor and unethical would not have been encouraged as is seen today.
If we wish to rise high it can be done so only with slow speed yet if we undergo a downfall it does not take even a few seconds. This is exactly what happened in past days. In the name of shrewdness foolishness was imbibed. The proof of this is that despite seeing pomp and gaiety everywhere in the external man inwardly is becoming hollow and badly beaten down. An atmosphere of worry, agitation, suspicion and discontent lords over us all both, within and without. None are happy. None is contented. Since mental poverty has taken over us widespread wealth too has become a cause of increase in strife.
A RAY OF HOPE IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF DESPAIR
We shall discuss here a few contemporary situations. Over here such an analysis has been made that lest due efforts were made to reform future times it would benefit one and all. Yet since this has not happened despair overtaking our psyche is natural but know that it is a dire thing to happen. As a result of it our will power breaks down and zest gets obstructed.
It is not as though creative endeavors have come to a total grinding halt. No doubt laxness has entered efforts that try to reform present times and render the future radiant yet it is not totally absent. If man’s zest is oozing forth then despite the attacks of obstacles so much can be done which can only be called stupendous. Potent efforts that lead to building of Egyptian Pyramids, Panama Canal, Suez Canal, Great Wall of China etc have been executed in an atmosphere of hopeful enterprise. When many people together lift a very heavy object their collective energy shouts aloud ‘Heya’ which reaps success for them in their endeavor.
In the 2nd world war when Britain was facing defeat its Prime Minister gave a slogan to the British citizens called ‘V for Victory’ in order to fire up their mental power. It meant that we shall definitely win even if the enemy is very mighty. This slogan got broadcasted in such a widespread manner that it became a symbol of definite faith and victory. This slogan shouting showcased a miraculous transformation and that Europe which was staring at defeat now started fighting the enemy with revved up fire in their bellies. A tattered Japan despite the fearful situation of Hiroshima took up creative tasks. It did not allow the will power of its citizen to weaken even a wee bit and hence in the world of finance it is a big leader. This is definite that if people’s faith based on the needs of the times of this era is given a wholesome direction to their thinking process then there is no reason why a joyous world future and radiant situations shall not manifest. This flow shall render straight that which is lopsided with great effort and know that it shall definitely be made possible.
UNDER ALL CIRCUMSTANES DESPAIR MUST BE UPROOTED
On imbibing tainted actions not only do obstacles appear in visible plans but it also seems that since on a regular footing nature’s laws are ignored the subtle aspect of nature too gets polluted. Harassments like earthquakes, storms, flooding, incessant rain, no rain, fights, agitations, crime, deadly diseases, epidemics etc are speedily manifesting in such a way that we fail to understand how they can be controlled and warded off. A harassed person deluded as to what role he needs to play becomes more and more despairing especially when in the name of progress and development efforts made in various arenas appear hollow and superficial. Thus one loses faith in the possibility of important world reforms setting in.
Very rare are those people who imbued with daring and enterprise in the midst of dark gloomy storms lights the flame of hope. Despite not getting cooperation from friends while executing creative tasks they in a lone manner labor intensely for reforms the world over. They straighten that which is lopsided and in such difficult tasks they remain firmly steadfast. They do not allow slackness or laxness to enter their hard work hence they are called great saints and messengers of God. But such great seers appear only rarely in this world. Their number is so less that the amount of contribution that could have been got from these prolific personages in order to ward off world despair is not got. Today the psyche of laymen is rendered akin to quick sand. What should have actually happened is that in order to replace wrongdoing with aptness valiant efforts should have awakened but since everyone’s psyche reeks with taints high stature zest for great tasks just does not spring forth. Today great seers like Christ, Buddha, Gandhi, Lenin etc that were known straighten that which is upside down too is not manifesting in our midst.
Under such circumstances it is quite nature that the human psyche undergoes helplessness. Over here we must understand that the disease of despair is not to be taken lightly because wherever it appears it can turn even a powerful person hollow. Despair is generally conjoined to a sense of defeat and anger and tiredness takes over. A man under such terrible burden not only himself breaks down but shatters others too. Thus our energy dissipates, the life force gets depleted and since tension increases uneasiness overwhelms us. Thus no creative solution appear in our brain with the help of which the boat of life in danger can be rowed to safe shores. A man in despair who negates the possibility of victory loses everything even when victory could have entered his grasp. Despair never allows a fallen person to rise up and disallows him to make endeavors for advancement.
Hence on realizing that despair should never be ignored in every walk of life efforts must be made to uproot it. In this rests welfare of all. It is only when zest and valor remain alive and kicking that we can move the cart of schemes of all round progress. Keeping in mind the possibility of a bright world future wherever there is the shadow of hopelessness no stone must be left unturned to destroy it from the very roots. And this is possibly only when foundations are set up that can imagine the hope of a radiant world future materializing in the future.
To a great extent it is true that based on contemporary times’ trends undesirable elements get attached to them yet the solution for this is that during times of facing obstacles powerful thinking must take over and for making intense efforts the thought process of world human psyche must be awakened. In order that we pay due attention to the probability of a bright world future ushering in and to render it potent, a mental background full of zest must be created. Regarding this in order to imbue faith in world public psyche a potent and widespread effort must be made the world over.
Time and again under similar circumstances very wise visionaries have actually made such efforts and they have successfully warded off despair looming large in people’s psyche via efforts akin to blowing the Panchjanya Conch of Mahabharat War fame. It is the prime task of great thinkers of every era to convert despair into bright hope, indolence into great effort and via new foundations inciting creative enterprise everywhere.
Many such examples can be found in the annals of world history. Ferocious demons were spell bound while facing defeat at the hands of bears, monkeys full of faith and zest who under the guidance of Lord Hanuman first built the Setubandh Bridge and then entered demon Ravan’s Lanka. It was only after imbuing faith that they could lift the Govardhan Mountain in the deep recesses of men that the cowherd boy-incarnate Lord Krishna executed an otherwise impossible feat. Even today we all are inspired by the story wherein once Krishna lifted this mountain with his little finger his cowherd friends too raised their sticks to support the mountain in mid air. It is looked upon as a historic trustworthy episode.
A young lady of France called Joan of Arc lit such a brilliant flame torch of freedom in the entire country that the public enamored by her radiant personality got up in full throttle and thus the heavy chains of bondage was broken. Lenin in his own way had imbued the Russian public psyche with Prana full of inspiration which convinced all that they will succeed in their endeavor. Other revolutions in world history too tasted success on this very basis.
Within Buddha’s Wheel of Religion’s turning contemporary public was taken to be the lone substratum of a bright future. Those who clearly realized this became Bhikshus/mendicants in large numbers so as to even give up their lives for this great mission if the need arose and not only in India/Asia but in the entire world they changed the prevalent trend for the better so as to taste success. Gandhi’s Satyagraha movement we can say happened ‘just yesterday’. In those days a definite environment manifested wherein slogans like ‘Freedom is our birth right and we shall have it’ were shouted aloud. On the basis of this faith innumerable patriots faced bullets on their powerful chests, entered jails and gave up their very lives for this stupendous call of freedom.
Arjun whose mind was dripping with a sense of defeat put forth many arguments so as to avoid fighting the Mahabharat War. After hearing many such lame arguments Lord Krishna proclaimed: I have already killed the Kauravas and they are as good as dead. Hence you must just become my medium/instrument and thus taste assured victory. Arjun harbored full faith in what Krishna said. Thus he shed all complexes from his psyche and got ready to fight that deadly war.
Founders of various religious sects attained capability of getting extraordinary help from their followers only after imbuing faith in their psyche regarding the precepts put forth by them. Visionaries of the path of spirituality via their sacred character and passing the fiery test of austerities attained such a state wherein followers in large numbers started harboring deep faith in their hallowed utterances.
Today in order to transform destruction into neo creation, in order that undesirable elements accept the control of aptness such a world psyche shall have to be generated that uproots fear, terror, inauspiciousness and destruction from itself and imbue faith that they have the power to help harbinger positive transformation. Along with this by giving up doubts of a bright future ushering in this world they must with deep faith imbibe the fact that unethical thinking/activities shall definitely be defeated by wholesomeness. The basis of harboring such faith that such an hour has arrived shall be unearthing sound logic, arguments in favor of it precepts, proof and a plethora of examples. Together if we conjoin God’s divine wish, Lord Mahakal’s inspiration and high stature beliefs that showcase this definite possibility, a good omen akin to fragrance added to 24 carat gold shall manifest.
Regarding this if it becomes a definite possibility that the 21st century shall be more radiant and joyous its result shall be that in the mind of world humans shall manifest a wish to uproot undesirable elements that are ruling planet earth and reinstate in their place happy blissful potentials. Its result definitely shall be that people shall give that which is unwholesome and shall fully accept that imbibing what is apt verily is true wisdom. Thus while taking up the role of being given due credit for such high stature sacred thinking they will themselves become role models for other world humans. Thus not only shall they get glorified but help innumerable others attain true glory too.
CONTEMPORARY WORLD PROBLEMS ARE ABOUT TO GET SOLVED
There was a time when in every household there were storms of blind faith and belief. In every home people discussed ghost, evil souls, sorceresses and so on. Someone or the other would talk of Mantras and black magic being targeted at them. Fear of doubt and suspicion were the causes of mutual fights and enmity.
Certain vile hypocrites had converted this mockery into a profession. Small illnesses were believed to the wrongdoing of evil spirits and wrong allegations were made against others by saying they had done black magic. Innocent people would believe all this and thus a mountain was made from a mole hill. Almost every day mutual enmity, quarrels and doubts/suspicions were noted. Thus those who claimed to ‘shoo’ away the evil spirit via Mantra ‘energized’ brooms made very good business of it. Where people should have lived peacefully and where no enmity should have been harbored since no cause existed there even in big villages/towns suspicion, blind faith and enmity prevailed. When fuel enters fire it blazes ferociously. Curiosity too for entertainment purposes would convert mole hills of hearsays into mountains and with this as an excuse many were looted.
From where did this distrust crop up and today where has it disappeared is indeed amazing. It is lack of true understanding that inflates errors. As soon as true understanding dawns it destroys all nets of delusions in such a way that never did horns grow on the head of an ass.
Even today man harbors a few illusions about himself. Day in and day out illnesses attack our body and in order to cure them newer medicines are administered. Despite this there always exists a dispute as to which medicine and therapy was beneficial and which was dangerous. One mode of medical cure can prove to be beneficial for ‘A’ but for ‘B’ it could prove to be deadly. Thus doctors and medicines keep changing on a daily footing. This has been going on for ages yet we have not drawn a definite conclusion till date.
After so many years one correct conclusion has been elucidated that the mind controls every part/organ of the human body. Lest the mind is controlled aptly and encouraged to walk on the path of true greatness all bodily parts start functioning optimally and the very roots of diseases can be chopped off. Bang opposite to this if our thinking is wayward/lopsided, bad thoughts take over our psyche then even if no problem is there in the body many imaginary mismanaged situations manifest in it and only those medicines function a bit in which we harbor deep faith. From this it appears that the roots/fount of all diseases and illnesses is the human mind/psyche. In fact the body merely reflects it dimly. Ere our thinking process is straightforward, serene and full of goodwill to all then since the root of diseases lies in the mind, the body shall not manifest the disease since the mind is functioning wholesomely (psycho somatic). If beforehand people had become fully aware of this fact everyone could cure their own disease by rendering the mind calm and sacred and would not have to run from one doctor to another with a sense of hopelessness.
The same holds true for anger and irritation. People opine that the cause of worries, suspicions and various obstacles are agitating situations but they forget that in those very situations, using those very means many other people live happily and a contented life. In fact when we experience obstructions the activities of our psyche plays a major role. In order to change external situations the mind’s waywardness is reformed instead of running about here and there, none will find it difficult to render situations conducive. When we fail to do this we superimpose our mistakes on others. Lest bad habits were absent then while living a life of straightforwardness and gentlemanliness each person could have reformed situations faced by them. When we rectify our error all those obstacles that loom large around us, henceforth disappear in a jiffy.
Misuse of the 5 sense organs becomes the cause of hardships faced by us all. Ere people had imbibed this gross fact one would not have had to madly run after fulfilling various desires and in fact via self control majority of problems faced in life could have been solved. Ere the taste buds were controlled optimally we would not desire to eat unwholesome food and thus with the stomach functioning healthily no digestive illnesses would have to be faced. Sexual lust and lewdness is a mental disease. People look upon this as a bodily demand or requirement which in fact is not true. Ere this gross principle was deeply understood all unethical activities based on sexual lewdness would come to a grinding halt. Men and women united would execute those important tasks wherein no dearth of joyous comforts would be witnessed and those undesirable situations that have to be faced virtually daily within them none would henceforth harass each other. Before using the 5 sense organs (ear, nose, taste buds, skin and speech) we differentiate between how aptly or erroneously they could be used, what needs to be imbibed and what needs to be overlooked, we would not err by taking wrong directions from the brain that would pose dire for our lives. Thus by abstaining from such errors people can live lives of blissful peace and well being.
The first sign of man’s high intellect is to use aptly all materials available. Ere the mind conjoined to our daily living had been accepted as the best means had we kept in mind its wholesome and unwholesome usage then each one of us would have had the opportunity of leading happy lives while making others happy too. Thus those obstacles and strife that we face day in and day out would no longer harass us. In this world there does not exist even one hardship which cannot be solved using a wise intellect. This world is Almighty God’s beautiful garden. In it in every direction lie all sorts of facilities and comforts. Wherever one sees obstacles there it must be understood that somewhere down the line our thinking is distorted. If only this error is unveiled that cause can easily be understood which renders a previously happy life full of thorns at present. In future mankind is about to positively rectify its thinking and along with this it is getting ready to shrug off all those problems which have resulted in today’s havoc like chaotic world environment.
Akin to other great philosophers Lord Atreya too in Charak Samihita’s ‘Janpado dhwansaniya viman’ titled chapter has given the root cause of present day atrocities/worries and ‘royal diseases’ like famine, floods, wars, earthquakes, volcanoes, explosions and epidemics. He writes that there are 4 main causes of all these viz. air, water, type of area and type of those times. When these 4 get tainted gigantic upheavals are noted. Why do these get tainted? While giving an answer to this question Lord Atreya tells his disciple Agnivesh:
O Agnivesh! The root cause of taints entering wind etc is unrighteousness and the cause of carrying out unrighteousness is our past misdeeds. The cause of both these is a tainted intellect and brain. The gist of this is that due to tainted learning when our intellect turns vile man executes unrighteous acts and this in turn leads to calamities etc. Its special description is that the lay public imitates actions behavior of leading personalities of society. Hence those people who are leaders in their country, city, villages etc on overthrowing righteousness induces the lay public to behave and act in an unrighteous manner, not only small time workers but all urban, rural, professionals etc take up unethical living in a big way. At such times unrighteous behavior shoots up so dramatically that it subdues righteousness totally. When righteousness is rendered void demigods give up associating with unrighteous people. In this manner where righteousness is as good as dead, where unrighteousness predominates and when demigods no longer help wicked people, seasons get tarnished. The result of this is that it does not rain on time winds do not move about properly, water dries up and medicines on giving up their healing qualities become distorted. Thus when people associate with each other the entire region due to taints in food and water become fallen. Not only this but that the reason why countries are uprooted via weapons (wars, world wars etc) is unrighteous prevailing in society. When wrath, deluded attachment and arrogance augments in people they by insulting weak powerless people use weapons to kill just about anyone and everyone after attacking them viciously. Such innocents are destroyed via demonic type of people. Thus it can doubtlessly be said that ‘Pragapi chadharmattate nashubhatpattirbhuta’ which means even in ancient times without unrighteousness prevailing unwholesomeness never appeared.
After this the revered Maharshi gave reasons why the intellect becomes tainted. He gave various solutions via which bad situations can be reformed because himself being a doctor it was required that he elucidates a therapy for every kind of disease. It was Maharshi Charak who gave us methods via which the nation can be gloriously uplifted.
Satyam bhutedaya dana balayo devatarchanam.
Sadvrittarayanuvruttishcha prashamo guptiratmanaha.
Hitam janapadanancha shivanamupasevanam.
Sevanam brahmacharyasya tathaiva brahmacharinam.
Sankatha dharmashastranam maharshinam jitasmanam.
Dharmikaiha sattvikairnityam sahasya vriddhasammataiha.
Ityetad bhashajam proktamayushaha paripalanam.
Yeshamaniyate mritustasmin kale sudarune.
MEANING: Under dire circumstances the following protects our life-
2) Compassion towards all beings
4) Worshiping demigods and offering gifts to them
5) Attitude of selfless sacred service to all
7) Protecting oneself
8) Goodwill towards all countrymen
9) One’s behavior and thinking must be piously great and using only those materials attained ethically/legally
10) Undergoing Brahmacharya and associating with Self Realized Gurus and Saints
11) Reading legends and religious texts of Maharshis that aid mastering of our psyche
12) Always continuously associating with pious senior citizens and honorable sacred hearted righteous people
If in contemporary times if the above mentioned sacred great thinking becomes a part and parcel of world human life then most definitely it will be possible to ward off and overcome all dire world situations faced by mankind today.
