20. Sivananda And World Peace :

Ques: Has Gurudev touched on the subject of world peace in his writings? How far has Sivananda Literature helped the cause of world peace, Swamiji?

Ans: Oh, yes. Gurudev has not only touched on the subject of peace and amity among nations in his many writings, but has written an exhaustive book itself on the subject.

The title of the book itself is ‘World Peace’.

Swamiji is in continual touch with a number of organisations which are dedicated to the cause of world peace and are working for it.

Swamiji sends a free supply of his non-sectarian literature to these organisations and also stirring messages on special occasions.

In this way, his message of peace is broadcast widely the world over.


Swamiji’s message of peace, love and harmony based on spirituality and Divine Life is particularly appreciated in Europe, Japan and other places which suffered heavily during the last war.

Besides influencing people through his literature, Swamiji himself calls them together now and then so that a solution for this and similar problems could be sought through personal understanding.

You may be aware that a World Philosophers’ Congress is scheduled to meet in Sivanandanagar in the course of the next few months to discuss, among other things, the vital topic of world peace and seek a spiritual solution thereto.

All the teachings of Swami Sivananda constantly emphasise the ideals of Ahimsa, brotherhood, universal love, selfless service, compassion, goodness and forgiveness.

They advocate in rousing terms the ideal of virtuous living, harmony and cooperation amongst all mankind.

Thus, his teachings pave the way for Peace and goodwill.

Vyakarana is Sanskrit grammar. Panini’s books are most famous. Without knowledge of Vyakarana, you cannot understand the Vedas.

Chhandas is metre dealing with prosody.

Nirukta is philology or etymology.

Jyotisha is astronomy and astrology. It deals with the movements of the heavenly bodies, planets, etc., and their influence in human affairs.

Kalpa is the method of ritual.

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.

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.
