Chapter-1.

25. Need For Spiritual Books -

Ques: Swamiji, I have just one more question to ask. Here again, please do not misunderstand me. My doubt is genuine. Could you kindly tell me why Swamiji should write so many books?

Ans: Oh, yes. I can clear your doubt. You know that in this world no two persons are alike.

If there are crores and crores of men, women and children in this world, there are crores and crores of temperaments and needs also.

Each aspirant has his own doubts.

Each aspirant has his own tastes.

Each Sadhaka has a different need to be fulfilled.

The worries, the botherations, the fears of people are not always the same.

Our Gurudev’s mission in life is not to satisfy just this person or that, but everyone.

Gurudev is full of cosmic love which means love for all.

He wants to serve everyone.

See how many kinds of books he has written!

He has written books for the Brahmachari and the Grihastha, for the ordinary man and the sophisticated.

He has written specially for women and for children. He has written specifically for people in the West as in “Yoga for the West.”

For those who want to amass wealth, he has written, “How to become Rich.”

For those who cannot control their temper, his book “How to Control Anger” will be a great boon.

For those who suffer from physical ailments, our Gurudev has written masterly treatises on Constipation, Blood-pressure, Diabetes and so on.

Gurudev has left no stone unturned to help as many people as possible, in as many ways as possible, through his literature.

He has written voluminous commentaries for full-time Sadhakas and pocket books for busy office-goers.

I can go on explaining like that.

I hope your doubt is now destroyed!

The Scriptures :

g ).The Vedangas-2.


Vyakarana is Sanskrit grammar. Panini’s books are most famous. Without knowledge of Vyakarana, you cannot understand the Vedas.

Chhandas is metre dealing with prosody.

Nirukta is philology or etymology.

Jyotisha is astronomy and astrology. It deals with the movements of the heavenly bodies, planets, etc., and their influence in human affairs.

Kalpa is the method of ritual.

The Srauta Sutras which explain the ritual of sacrifices belong to Kalpa.

The sulba Sutras, which treat of the measurements which are necessary for laying out the sacrificial areas, also belong to Kalpa.

The Grihya Sutras which concern domestic life, and the Dharma Sutras which deal with ethics, customs and laws, also belong to Kalpa.

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.
