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.

DIVINE LIFE FOR JUNIORS - 21-30.


21. God -

God is love. God is truth. God is peace. God is knowledge. God is power. God is bliss. He dwells in your heart. He is your true friend and guide. He is your real father and mother. Realise Him and be forever happy and peaceful.

22. Prayer -

Pray, meditate and chant God’s Names daily. Pray to Him with a heart filled with devotion and love. Pray to become a good boy or girl. Take complete refuge in God.

23. Simplicity -

Be artless. Be simple in your speech. Do not twist words and topics. Be plain. Avoid cunningness and crookedness. Be simple in dress. Be simple in your food.

24. Become a Hero -

Do not be timid. Be courageous. Be bold. Be cheerful. Walk like a lion. Talk boldly. Do not be shy. Be ever active. Have faith and trust in God.

25. Be Moderate -

Play less, study more. Sleep less, pray more. Preach less, practise more. Hoard less, give more. Talk less, listen more. Sit less, serve more.

26. Be Considerate -

Remove thorns and glass pieces from the road. Learn first aid. Become a scout or guide. Help mother in the kitchen. Clean the house. Wash your clothes yourself. Help the blind and the dumb. Help your mates. Make them understand what you have learnt.

27. Be Tolerant -

Respect all religions. All religions lead to the one God. Respect all saints and prophets. They are all messengers of God. The essentials of all religions are the same. Remember this point well.

28. Serenity -

Be serene and calm under all conditions. Cultivate this virtue again and again. Serenity is like a rock; waves of irritation may dash on it but cannot affect it.


29. See God in All -

Your father is your visible God. Your mother is your visible God. The teacher is your visible God. The guest is your visible God. The poor are your visible God. The whole world and all creatures in it are forms of God. Therefore, love, serve and respect all.

30. Surrender -

Surrender to God is the highest prayer. Whatever has happened has happened by the will of God. What is happening is happening by the will of God. What is to happen will happen by the will of God. Therefore, worry not, fear not. Be not anxious. Be not nervous. Trust in God and be ever happy and peaceful.

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.
