Ref : PRESENT VIOLENT CAMPUS POLITICS  IN  BHARATHAM : -

All Members,

Respected family members of this great holy Nation.

*REQUEST ALL  STUDENTS, PARENTS AND TEACHERS MUST READ THIS TOPIC

**IT IS URGENT IMPORTANCE IN THE PRESENT SITUATION  OF THE NATION

3. THE RELATIONSHIP OF CHARACTER TO HUMAN LIFE :


What is the relationship of character to human life?

The relationship of character to human life is the same as that of the foundation to the entire structure of the building which will be raised over that foundation.

The most important part in the structure of the building is the foundation.

If the foundation is well laid, if the foundation is strong, then the building will stand.

You can raise it high, and it will last, it will be strong.

If the foundation is weak or not properly laid, then any moment the building can collapse, the building cannot be lasting.

Even so is the life of the individual.

If in young age, in his youth, in the period of student life the individual tries hard to develop noble qualities, to become strong in body, to acquire will power, strength of mind and he is able to overcome all negative qualities like selfishness, egoism, pride, dishonesty, greed, weakness, overeating and slavery to senses;

if by using his will power, the young man is able to become master over his senses, overcome anger, and develop truthfulness and honesty and he becomes a person of integrity and thus becomes a master of his senses, such a student lays a strong foundation for his future life.


Upon the foundation of a well developed character and conduct, one can build up the edifice or structure of a successful life.

Whatever someone undertakes, he will succeed in it.

Whatever profession he adopts, he will make headway in it. He will shine; he will earn the respect of all people.

He will have a magnetic personality.

He will have influence over his time.

He will be a leader, for the power of character gives magnetism to the personality, and the power of character depends upon self control.

Without self control you cannot be an ideal individual.

The secret of a successful career, the secret of a magnetic personality is self control and character which is the outcome of self control.

The key to character is self control, and character is the basis of success in life.

With character you can overcome every obstacle in life.

You can succeed in all undertakings.

You will shine brilliantly in every field of life.

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.
