GURU (SPIRITUAL TEACHER) IS THE PURE INTELLECT WITHIN :-

Bhagavadgeeta:-

To a Vedanta followers, the real Guru is the pure Intellect within. The purified, deeply aspiring mind is the disciple. This is represented for us in the unforgettable scene in our Bhagavadgeeta, where between the two opposing forces, in a chariot, the Absolute  Teacher is preaching the Geeta to the Eternal disciple,  Arjuna. 


Today's Arjunas:-

When a pure mind gets aghast at the negativity arrayed against  the comparatively smaller forces of positivity, in sheer despair it surrenders itself completely to the pure intellect, the Lord Krishna within. ALL such living Arjunas can even today hear the entire divine song in the inner Kurukshetra of their own bosom. Only we must make an earnest attempt and in faith wait for then critical hour when our minds glide into the voiceless state of true Vairagya---the true Arjuna Sthiti.


Guru:-


Thus, the most important thing is our own self-effort. In sincere Sadhana purify the equipment and the Guru necessary for our next stage of growth shall reach us. This is the Eternal Law. Hour by hour, the world about us is so ordered as to give us necessary doses of experiences. Lord Krishna and Lord Sri Raman are great Gurus of the Universe, They are not Gods and our spiritual scriptures are our great guides, the are not religious books applicable to each Bharath nivasi.

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.
