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 -3.

Sub :  3. ESSENCE OF DIVINE LIFE -3.
(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.

1.Seek first the spiritual kingdom within you.

2. Realise fully the message of the unity of life and the divine purpose behind it.

3. Stick to the fundamental principles of a noble life. Re-orient them to suit the changing times and conditions.

4.Never compromise on your fundamental principles.

5. Unfold all the latent potentialities of your soul through leading the Divine Life.

6. Escape from the world is not the solution, but freedom from worldliness.

7. Live in agreement with Nature. Use your discriminative faculty. You will be happy, healthy and wise.

8. Swerve not from the path, whatever be the distractions and unfavourable circumstances which you may have to face. Be rooted in the ideal. The struggle may be difficult in the beginning,  but later you will reap a rich harvest.

9. Allow not wealth to harden your heart. It should be utilised for the good of others.

10. Be a servant of the poor, a lover of the poor, a devotee of the poor, a brother of the poor, a helper of the poor, a healer of the poor. Your life will be blessed.

11. The greedy, the proud and the covetous have no peace. The contented and the humble enjoy the blessing of peace.

12. Give; charity creates the feeling of oneness.

13. Give a little of cold water to the thirsty; give a few grains of food to the hungry; speak a few kind words to the afflicted. The Lord will bless you.

14. Seek to live with all in love and kindness, for who knows where or in what guise will the Lord Himself come to you?

15. Be a friend to the animals; serve the animals. The Lord dwells in all creatures.

16. If you can always remember that God is watching all your thoughts and actions, you will not entertain evil thoughts or do evil actions.

17. Whatever you eat or drink, or whatever you do, offer it first to the Lord.

18. Cooperate with the divine forces, and work for the promotion of peace and harmony
.
19. Be not dogmatic and fanatic; be catholic, broad minded, tolerant and all-inclusive.

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.
