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

10. LEARN YOUR CULTURE : - BE PROUD TO BE A BHARATIYA -

Any person who is a Bharatiya should know that his culture is a rich culture. It is full of idealism.

There are many great things to learn and copy for which western people come here.

Therefore better learn your culture.


Better find out the rich, noble qualities of your culture and be proud that you are a Bharatiya.

Cultivate for yourself a Bharatiya life style, and that Bharatiya life style is what I have just now described to you.

By the strength and power of character you can keep your senses subdued, you can control the little desires and passions of the mind—

Asha, Trishna, cravings of the mind and be a master in your own home, not a slave in your house.

Therefore avoid bad or impure company and do not imitate the western superficial life style.

This is not necessary for us.

You must shine as an ideal Bharatiya and you must live in such a way.

If western people come here they must see you and realize what you are.


We have got enough light to  banish the darkness that is prevailing in the material world.

We have enough light to give them, to bring light upon their life’s path.

Guide them towards a higher goal. As a Bharatiya it is your privilege and duty to evolve this higher idealism.

When you grow older you must be able to show the rest of the world the higher culture and higher ethical values for which your country stands.

This is the real essence of your country’s culture.

Therefore do not imitate and avoid bad company.

The Srauta Sutras which explain the ritual of sacrifices belong to Kalpa.

The sulba Sutras, which treat of the measurements which are necessary for laying out the sacrificial areas, also belong to Kalpa.

The Grihya Sutras which concern domestic life, and the Dharma Sutras which deal with ethics, customs and laws, also belong to Kalpa.

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.

15. The Law of Spiritual Economics-4.2.

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.
