THE HOLY SECULARISM:-5.


A SUCCESSFUL REVOLUTION ALWAYS NOURISHES COURAGE IN THE REVOLUTIONARIES AND UNLESS IT IS PROPERLY GUIDED, IN ITS MOUNTING PASSIONS IT CAN DESTROY THE VERY GOAL OF THE REVOLUTION. SUCH A TRAGEDY SEEMS TO HAVE HAPPENED FOR MATERIALISM IN THE WEST. FROM UNDER THE LOADS OF ITS VERY SUPERSTITIONS AND SUFFOCATING SHACKLES OF RELIGIOUS FANATICISM THE HEALTHY  INTELLECT OF THE WEST RIGHTLY REVOLTED, AND EMERGED OUT SPECTACULARLY, TO FIGHT FOR, VANQUISH, AND RULE OVER THE REALMS OF SCIENCE. IN THIS SILENT REVOLT THEY HAD NO MASTERLY GUIDE TO LEAD THEM PROPERLY AND, THEREFORE, INTOXICATED WITH THEIR FREEDOM, THE MAJORITY OF THE MASSES HAVE COME TODAY TO BELIEVE THAT THEIR SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS IS BECAUSE OF THEIR REVOLT AGAINST THE SACRED RELIGIOUS DISCIPLINE.


TO THEM, THEREFORE, TODAY, TO BE AGAINST THE SACRED IS TO BE ASSURED OF PROGRESS IN THE SECULAR. WITHOUT ANY CHASTENING PHILOSOPHY, WITHOUT ANY INSPIRING IDEOLOGY, WITHOUT ANY MORAL GOAL, WITHOUT ANY SOFTENING DEVOTION, SPANNER IN HAND AND MACHINE GUN ON ITS SHOULDERS, ONWARD MARCHES THE WESTERN CIVILIZATION READY TO START A WAR  AT ANY MOMENT FOR RAW MATERIAL OR FOR THE MARKET. THEY CLAIM THEMSELVES TO BE A GREATER GENERATION BECAUSE THEY KNOW HOW TO WIELD THE MONKEY-SPANNER!!!

4. Use and Abuse of the Caste System -1.

The Hindus have survived many a foreign conquest on account of their caste system. But they have developed class jealousies and hatred in the name of the caste system. They have not got the spirit of co-operation. That is the reason why they are weak and disunited today. They have become sectarians in the name of the caste system. Hence there is degradation in India.

The caste system is, indeed, a splendid thing. It is quite flawless. But the defect came in from somewhere else. The classes gradually neglected their duties. The test of ability and character slowly vanished. Birth became the chief consideration in determining castes. All castes fell from their ideals and forgot all about their duties.

Brahmanas became selfish and claimed superiority over others by mere birth, with…

CHAPTER - 4. HINDU ETHICS-5.

5. Ethical Codes In Hinduism :

5.1
Hindu ethics is superb. Hinduism lays great emphasis on ethical discipline.

Yama (self-restraint) and Niyama (religious observances or canons) are the foundations of Yoga and Vedanta.


5.2
Undeveloped persons cannot think for themselves.

Hence rules of conduct have been laid down by great sages or seers like Manu and Sage Yajnavalkya.


5.3
Lord Krishna says in the Gita: “Let the scriptures be thy authority in determining what ought to be done or what ought not to be done.

Knowing what hath been declared by the ordinances of the scriptures, thou oughtest to work in this world” (Ch. XVI-24).

The Smritis written by Yajnavalkya, Manu and other sages distinctly prescribe the rules of conduct.

As you have not got the power nor the time to think of the moral principles and rules given in the scriptures, you can get them from the sages and saints and follow them to the very letter.

4. Use and Abuse of the Caste System -3.

At the present moment, the Varnasrama system exists in name only.

It has to be rebuilt properly.

Brahmanas, Kshatriyas, Vaisyas and Sudras, who have fallen from their ideals and who are not doing their respective duties, must do their respective duties properly.

They must be educated on right lines.

They must raise themselves to their original lofty level.

The sectarian spirit must die.

They should develop a new understanding heart of love and devotion, with a spirit of co-operation, sacrifice and service.
