 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





3. Transforming Power Of Daily Study :

Ques: How do spiritual books transform the life of a man?

Ans: Spiritual books transform the life of a man by imparting true knowledge and opening his eyes to the true purpose of life.

Let me explain what I mean.


*These days, even when a man passes his M.A., he is ignorant of the real purpose of life. 

**He takes a degree merely to get a petty job and an income. 

***Then, he marries and begets children. 

****Some people, dissatisfied still, divorce their first wive and marry again. 

*****The foolish man thus searches in vain for happiness in wealth and women, without understanding that both wealth and women are perishable. 


"Spiritual books tell such a person that lasting happiness cannot be had in perishable objects but can be had only in God. 

They will point out that real life consists not just in eating, drinking and sleeping. 


Even animals perform these functions. 

Man has a far higher purpose in life.

It is man’s privilege to seek and achieve perfection through God-realisation." 


Spiritual books, by pointing out to you the purpose of life, by pointing out what is right and what is wrong, by suggesting various practical means of moulding your life on the pattern of great spiritual heroes, help you to shed vices, develop virtues and build up a noble personality.

They teach you to make a success of your life by living for the true goal of existence.

They endow your life with a rich meaning and save you from the temptations of petty and base things by constantly keeping before your vision the inspiring picture of a high ideal.


'These spiritual books contain words of authority and power derived from a higher source and this infuses the sincere reader with inner strength and provides him with a powerful urge towards a progressively nobler and better life.' 

"Thus, though silent, they are yet dynamic life-transformers." 


'Throughout the history of this world, spiritual books have played a distinct role in moulding the characters and personalities of great leaders of mankind, in all fields of life.' 

"Sivaji, Abraham Lincoln, Gandhiji are some of the standing examples." 


The influence exerted by great books upon the lives of men is an undeniable positive factor in human progress.

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.
