 23. Glory Of Jnana Yajna :

Ques: Why is it that of all Yajnas, Jnana Yajna or dissemination of spiritual knowledge is considered as the highest?

Ans: When you go to the shop, why do you choose a German article though the same article made in France or Japan may also be available?

It is because you know that the German article will give you lasting service whereas the others may give trouble at any moment.

In other words, the German article will be permanent, while the French or Japanese may not be so. Naturally enough, you prefer a permanent thing to a temporary thing.


In the same way, there are different kinds of Yajna, different kinds of charity.

We serve people in different ways. We give money to the poor; we feed them; we give them clothes to wear; we give them medicines and nurse them.

All these we do for their physical bodies. After a few years, the physical body will turn to ashes.

And the persons whom we served will again be born and suffer the cycle of births and deaths. Our service helps them only for a short while, in a particular birth.


Jnana Yajna stands altogether on a different footing. You impart spiritual knowledge to a man.

After acquiring this knowledge, he strives for God and acquires Mukti. When he gets Mukti, he gets everything. He cannot aspire for more.

That is why dissemination of spiritual knowledge is rightly considered as the highest Yajna. Spiritual knowledge is food for the Soul which is permanent while the gift of food etc., nourish only the physical body which is perishable.

 All other gifts reach but the passing and perishable aspects of the human being, while the gift of higher spiritual knowledge reaches the inner man the essential spiritual being within and makes for an everlasting result.

Fruit of Jnana Yajna is imperishable.

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.
