 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


17.  Three  Important Things to Follow : - Continued

Thirdly, the last most important thing is development of a noble character.

Once this age passes, you cannot change your character,

because in young age, you are like bricks which have not yet been put inside the kiln.

The clay is still soft; you can alter the shape.

You can put upon it any Chhap (imprint).

You can mould it.

You can change it.

But once you have put a brick inside the kiln and it becomes hard, then you cannot change it.

If you try to alter the shape, it will break.

So whatever you want to do, do it in this stage.


When a plant is tender, it can be turned in any direction.

When it becomes a big tree you cannot bend it.

It will break.


So in this age, you can mould your character, you can make your behaviour, you can make your Swabhava (nature) in any way you want.

But if you wake up too late and then try to change it, you find that you cannot.

Your nature has become hard, crystallised.

Therefore, now is the time when you can give any shape.


1.  Remember the greatest disease of human society is selfishness.

2.  Arrogance and anger is not a sign of strength.

3. Try to learn this.


 As a sign of self-control always be humble, simple and unselfish.

 Let your character shine with selflessness.

Let it be endowed with simplicity, humility and forgiveness.

Study ‘Sure Ways of Success in Life’ by Swami Sivananda and ‘Self-Indulgence vs. Self-Restraint’ by Gandhiji. Let self-help, moderate living and character be your motto.

Be an ideal student.

May God bless you!

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.
