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. 3. ESSENCE OF DIVINE LIFE -2.

Sub :  3. ESSENCE OF DIVINE LIFE -2.
(Sri Swami Sivananda)


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.


1. Aspire ceaselessly to live in the Divine. Strive ceaselessly to realise the truth. . Work untiringly for the good of others.

2. To have faith and devotion, to serve the preceptor and the saints, to practise meditation, an to attain Self-knowledge is indeed a supreme blessing. Without self-restraint there is no Divine Life.

3. Do not mix much with people, but be friendly to all.  Children of Immortality! Arise, awake and lead the Divine Life of truth, purity, love and goodness.

4. Be merciful to all. Be kind to all. Love all. Renounce sensual pleasures. Meditate on the Supreme Being. This is Divine Life.

5. The world is a composite whole. Do not entertain the spirit of separateness. In your heart and mind, be one with all.

6. The individual soul has to merge in the Cosmic Self. Human life has to transform itself into Divine Life. This is the Goal.

7. Find out your centre. Dwell always in this centre. This centre is the Atman, your innermost being.

8. Realise your real nature. Realise your Atman. A lion should not bleat like a lamb.

9. Do not be pessimistic. Do not be negative in your approach. Be always optimistic and positive.

10. Your only duty is God-realisation. All other duties should only serve as a means to this final goal.

11.Put aside sorrow and grief. Identify not yourself with the perishable body and mind. You are the immortal Atman. Why should you grieve, when your real nature is joy eternal?

12. To get established in the Self, to do charitable and noble deeds, to be pure at heart,—this is indeed a supreme blessing. Spiritualise your activities. Dedicate all your actions as an offering to God.

13. Practise detachment and self-surrender. Live in God. Awake from the slumber of ignorance. Be dispassionate.

14. Learn to discriminate. Meditate. Sleep no more! Behold the dawn of wisdom in your heart.

15. Lift the veil of human imperfections. Behold your real divine nature.

4. Use and Abuse of the Caste System -1.

The Hindus have survived many a foreign conquest on account of their caste system. But they have developed class jealousies and hatred in the name of the caste system. They have not got the spirit of co-operation. That is the reason why they are weak and disunited today. They have become sectarians in the name of the caste system. Hence there is degradation in India.

The caste system is, indeed, a splendid thing. It is quite flawless. But the defect came in from somewhere else. The classes gradually neglected their duties. The test of ability and character slowly vanished. Birth became the chief consideration in determining castes. All castes fell from their ideals and forgot all about their duties.

Brahmanas became selfish and claimed superiority over others by mere birth, with…

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.

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.
