 Dear Children of this Holy Nation -

 1. First Talk : 7.

 7.

The others are all ‘lesser’ goals, but the supreme goal is to attain Kaivalya Moksha.
That is why you have taken a human birth.

Of all the gifts the Creator has given to His creation, the gift of the human status is the highest.
Hence, you are the most fortunate ones; remember this and do not delay, because “time and tide wait for no man” as the saying goes.

The great Jagadguru Adi Sankaracharya, in his own inimitable way, gave in a brief manner the quintessence of this wisdom in the ‘Bhaja Govinda’. He said:

‘Dinamapi rajani saayam praatah
shishiravasantau punarayatah,
kalah kreedati gacchatyayuh
tadapi na munchatyashavayuh.’

(Days, nights, evenings, mornings, winters and springs are coming again and again in a cycle. Time is dancing; life is slowly departing. Even then the chain of desire does not break.’)

How vain and foolish is man?
How unthinking?
With every sunrise and sunset life is ebbing away and soon the life span allotted to him will be finished.

Daily he witnesses the whole world being continuously devoured by the jaws of death, and yet he is forgetful of his real mission, being engaged in frittering away his time and energy in futile miscellaneous things!

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.
