Dear Children of this Holy Nation -

Think Big, Act Wisely, Show Results :


That which is needed foremost from the modern youth is right thinking, leading to a clear vision of life. We should remove all barriers of pettiness and THINK BIG. Big things are achieved in the world, first, by daring to conceive them in our mind. Man dared to think that he could fly like a bird – and the first flying machine was invented !

He dared to think that he could reach the moon, and lo ! Man landed on the far away moon ! Nothing is impossible for the one who thinks. Our thoughts alone bind us and make us small, and thoughts alone can free us. Break this bondage of narrow limiting thoughts and THINK BIG.

To think big means not only to think as an individual but as a nation as well. Think what will be beneficial to the nation, what will bring about national good. When Swami Chinmayananda learned the scriptures from His Teacher, He thought as to how He could pass on this man making Knowledge to the people of the nation and to the entire world.

This is called ‘Thinking Big ‘ Swami Vivekananda used to spend restless nights in America thinking of the welfare of India and the entire world. Even as a child, Samartha Ramdas Swami was thinking of universal good.

5. Ethical Codes In Hinduism :

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.

Undeveloped persons cannot think for themselves.

Hence rules of conduct have been laid down by great sages or seers like Manu and Sage Yajnavalkya.

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.
