” God is Truth and Light in Shadow”. – Plato
” When the Gods were more manlike, Men were more Godlike”. – Friedrich Schiller
This is a post for the beginners who are getting influenced by the inner world, who is seeking to or searching for light of the soul . The first and foremost duty and responsibility of a man is to believe himself.
Jesus Christ told us – ” Know Thyself “. To know our inner world is to our practice of religion . Hence, this is the practice to win and achieve the inner world . Not only to know the Shiva Sakti in me , but to know others as a God is also our spiritual practice to go ahead of God. ” Uttisthata Jaggrata Prappya Baran Nibedhato”.
THE PRACTICE TO WIN:
This is the calling of Veda . Arise , Awake until you reached the Goal . Swami Vivekananda’s wards are same as Veda . Let be awaken , stand up and march on towards perfection . With your untiring efforts lastly victory over the demonic force which are obstructing your journey to truth , will come. Never shelter your weakness . You have enormous power within you. .
OUR DESTINATION :
¶¶ We are not concerned about our destination. What is our goal of life ? It’s not clear to us . Perhaps we desire to be a Doctor , Engineer or IIT – ian , Chartered Accountant , or a Politician .
Nowadays some young boys and girls are fascinating in Music. We are running towards a goal that is related to economic deliverance. And obviously, it’s just and it should be the main aim of our lives. We can’t avoid it as it’s the means of survival.
EXAMPLE OF SWAMI VIVEKANANDA :
Swami Vivekananda before renunciation walked from one office to another for a service. His family was in financial crisis after his father’s death although his father earned a lot. But to help his relatives in their crisis giving away all his earned money. He had nothing in banks.
Suddenly he died. So after his death, no one came to help his family. Narendranath, with his mother and brothers, had no source of income. He was then unemployed.
He graduated in Philosophy from the University of Calcutta. Moreover, He was then an atheist and Joined Keshav Chandra’s Brahma Samaj.
As he was a skilled musician he used to sing in the Brahma Samaj choirs. But he didn’t satisfied with the Samaj when he was a college student.
MEETING WITH SRI RAMKRISHNA :
Next he met his guru Sree Ramkrishna Paramhansa. He learnt from his principal, Mr . Hesty about Sree Ramkrishna. One day, in absence of their subject teacher of English, Principal Mr. Hesty came to take the class. He was teaching that day the English poem of Wordsworth , where there’s a matter of renunciation and of transcendental state of mind.
In connection to this, he told that there’s a man (priest ) in nearby at Dakkhineshwar who had felt and reached at that transcendental state of mind.
Therefore, within a few days Narendranath visited his spiritual master, Sree Ramkrishna .We know the next story which is a history.
An atheist turned into a Theaist. Initially in his first meeting with Sree Ramkrishna Swamiji was an agonistic. But after some days he was being ignited into divine power and enlightenment through the touch of his Master.
DIVINE LIFE AND THE PRACTICE TO WIN :
We know all this incidents of Swamiji’s divine life . Another great divine soul of India is Rishi Sree Aurobindo. We know about Maharshi Raman and so many godly souls of India. They had enriched Indian spiritual culture.
But now -a – days, it’s seldom found this kind of Divine man . Most of the so called Gurus are now business man . They are making industries like Tata , Ambani putting on saffron garments.
So concept has changed in modern day. They’re doing some good works also for the mankind. Rajyoga institutions , Patanjali , Esha Foundation are some of these organisations. Health and mind solution is their main motto .
HINDUS ARE NOT ALERT :
What we are going to say that , in the present time Hindus are not getting connected with the pure spiritual invironment which was once aboundant merely 100 years ago.
As a result, we have got a lot of sacrificed Indian who fought for the freedom of the country.
In fact, they used to read Gita everyday and always carried a copy of this most inspiring book along with them. How profoundly they were spiritual minded it’s the vivid instance.
Ultimately , the victory came by virtue of their sacrifice.And we became free from the chain of British rule. Where had they got the strength ! It’s spiritual power which they possessed of.
PRESENT NEED :
For our country sake , it’s the present need to bathe in the spiritual river and to be purified. We have heard , and have seen so many scams draining out our capitals.
Corruption is everywhere , in politics, in Burrocrats, in offices, Business, in Panchayat , and the list will be big . The machinery has been running through corruption. Central Government perhaps wanted to introduce Gita to the n school curriculum.
But I think they failed to make it fruitful. But it should and must be fulfilled. So through the practice of reading Gita and realising its meaning one can be enriched in moral attitude and spiritual growth.
RENAISSANCE OF NINETEENTH CENTURY INDIA :
During the nineteenth century, our Indian civilization , our culture had been going through a dark situation. It was wrapped up with the prejudices, fanaticism, irrational activities , corruption and so on.
Then there was a need for spiritual revival. Ram Mohan Roy, Sree Ramkrishna Paramhansa, Vidyasagar, Vivekananda, Tagore, Sri Aurobindo, Netaji Subhash, Mahatma Gandhi, and so many great men came to remove all these darkness of our country.
In fact, they’re all divinely empowered and tried their best to correct all the flaws of the society as well as the country.
At present , we have acquired degrees . Our scientists invented so many things for our comfort. We have fulfilled our desires in materialistic world. But in spite of that we are lagging behind to reach in vibrant position because of the corruptions.
But why corruption? We have lost our moral and spiritual power . Therefore, Our country men were in inactive , imprisoned in the magic circle of Tamas . In this connection I can quote here a speech of Aurobindo . He told in his Bhawani Mandir manifesto :
” The Shakti we call India. Bhawani Bharati is the living unity of the Shaktis of three hundred million people; but She is inactive, imprisoned in the magic circle of Tamas , the self – indulgent inertia and ignorance of her Sons. Strength can only be created by drawing it from the eternal and inexhaustible reservoirs of the spirit , from the Adyashakti of the Eternal which is the fountain of all new existence. “
LET FEED OUR SOUL :
Let feed our soul with positive power and energy , not in negative .Obviously, it is Positive attitude , it is spiritual energy , and true love for country can change the present dark scenario of our country.
Despite its dark shadows our great country, India, is like a Phienix bird . It never gets burned and turns into ashes..
