 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

6. Books To Begin With :

Ques: What books should I take up to begin with, Swamiji?

Ans: Always choose those books which inspire noble feelings in you, which bring new, uplifting ideas to your mind.

By reading a book, you should always become better.

The book should always take you higher and higher, in every way.

Again, read those books which add to your fund of real, useful knowledge.

Read the Ramayana,  the Mahabharata, Srimad Bhagavatham, Srimad Bhagavad-Gita and  all  Puranas  first.

They are full of morals and inspiring stories.

Read abridged editions, if you have no time for the originals.




"Read Sri Swami Adi Sankaracharya, Sri Ramanujacharya, and Sri Madhvacharya and  their  great  writings."


"Read some of the books written by many  later  Acharyas  19th  and  20th  centuries, such  as  Sri Ramakrishna, Swami Vivekananda, Sri  Ramana Maharishi, Sri Aurobindo, Swami Sivananda, Swami Chinmayananda, Swami Krishnananda, Swami Chidananda  and  so  on."

Swami Sivananda  books  are  very  simple.

He gives the essence of religion in simple language. 

As you know, he has written many books specially for young boys and girls. 

Read his “Ethical Teachings,” “Sure Ways for Success in Life and God-realisation,” “Practice of Brahmacharya,” “Students’ Success in Life,” “Divine Stories,” “Divine Life for Children,” “Gita for the Young,” “Gita Essence for Children” etc. Study his works on Mind Control and the Cultivation of Virtues. 

You will be immensely benefited.

NOTE : -

In Bharatham  and in Hinduism  there  are  plenty of  different  literature  available,  which  is  not  in  other  religions,  and  countries.  All  are  TRUTH  only.

Not as  dos  and  don'ts  as  in Christianity and  Islam  as  well  as  ignorant stories  in  these  foreign  religions.

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.
