  Dear Children of this Holy Nation -

1. First Talk : 4.

 4.
The change is to be made, and the time has come for that change.

We all have to become transformed beings to populate a new world.

And to that end, if these 3 days of sharing would contribute, even to a little extent, and help you in bringing about that great transformation which the spirit of the times expects from all of us everywhere, then you will have not only to ponder whatever is placed before you, but you will have to actually respond to this expectation!


Because you are all my Bharatiya Atmabandhus, we are all children of this great country, of this sublime culture, therefore, it is a sharing in a spirit of fellowship.

But this time the sharing should not be merely for acquiring some more knowledge, that phase has passed.

You are all intellectual people, Buddhijivis. Now, you will have to think in terms of ‘implementing’ whatever you have heard and received.

 Your actions must bear testimony to your understanding, your wisdom and your idealism!


Through your actions people must be able to infer the contents of your heart.

Is it iron, is it silver, is it gold or is it gold plus diamonds?

The time has come to make manifest your knowledge!

And the second reason for my emphasising this is because perhaps there may not be another occasion for me to come and address you.

Time is fleeting and life ebbs away!

 Therefore, you have to ask yourself, “When I go into the ‘new’ millennium, into the ‘new’ century, how long am I going to be there?”

Thank you for reading

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.

MEMBERS VERY IMPORTANT TATTVAM, READ CAREFULLY AND REMEMBER TILL YOUR LIFE ENDS."

CHAPTER- 3 :  HINDU DHARMA- 15.4.3.
15. The Law of Spiritual Economics-4.2.

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.
