The present, added on to some period of time-becomes future. The present plus time is the future. So our present work plus the time in which we do and achieve things together becomes the future world. The future is not a continuity of the present world - it can never be. The present world is being handled, dandled, destroyed and created through this given period of time, and what remains will be the future world - good or bad, created or destroyed. 4. SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR KARMA-YOGIS.

Ref : The present, added on to some period of time-becomes future. The present plus time is the future. So our present work plus the time in which we do and achieve things together becomes the future world. The future is not a continuity of the present world - it can never be. The present world is being handled, dandled, destroyed and created through this given period of time, and what remains will be the future world - good or bad, created or destroyed.


4. SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR KARMA-YOGIS.
(Sri Swami Sivananda)


1. See God in every face, in everything.

2. Repeat mentally or silently or with the breath the Name of the Lord such as Hari Om, Sri Ram, or your Ishta-Mantra or Guru Mantra even when you work in the office. A strong habit of repetition of the Mantra will soon be formed.

3. Give up meat, hot curries, onion and garlic. Take Sattvic food, milk, fruits, bread, Chapatis, vegetables, pulses, etc. Eat simple food. Wear simple clothing. Practise celibacy or moderation.

4. Feel that God is the Inner Ruler who manipulates your mind, body and the Indriyas. Therefore give up the thought: “I am the doer,” Feel: “I am Nimitta or instrument in His hands. God works through my hands, eats through my mouth and sees through my eyes.”

5. Do not expect any fruits for your actions, not even approbation, thanks, gratitude, appreciation, applause, return of salute or smile, etc.

6. Offer all actions, their fruits, body, mind, Indriyas and soul as flowers at the Lotus-Feet of the Lord as Isvararpana.

7. Never, never say: “I have helped that man.” Feel and think: “That man gave me an opportunity to serve. This piece of service has helped me to purify the mind. I am extremely grateful to him.”

8. Feel that the world is a manifestation of God. “Harireva Jagat, Jagat eva Hari. Sarvam Vishnu mayam Jagat.” Serve with Narayana Bhava. Feel that you are serving God in all beings.

9. Discipline the Indriyas. Control them. Develop alertness, decision, discrimination, discernment, forgiveness, patience, mercy, cosmic love, tolerance, equal vision, etc. Have a balanced mind. Be calm, cool and serene always.

10. Combine Bhakti or Jnana with Karma-Yoga.

11. Serve poor, sick people. There is no Yajna greater than this. Serve everyone with Bhava, Prema and full Sraddha. Serve the Lord in all. Serve your country and society. Serve your parents, brothers and sisters, Sadhus, Sannyasins, Bhaktas and Mahatmas, spiritual teachers with full heart and devotion. Shampoo the legs of sick persons. Feel that you are touching the body of the Lord (Virat). Feel that the energy of Hiranyagarbha (cosmic energy) is flowing through your hands. Tap the very source, the store-house of Cosmic Energy.

12. Be good and do good. Become an embodiment of goodness. Keep the body strong and healthy. Note in your spiritual diary the number of good and evil actions.

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.

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.
