       Dear Children of this Holy Nation -
      1. First Talk : 13.

      13.
She became propitiated and agreed to descend to this earth.
He then performed very severe austerities to please Brahma, the Creator, who appeared before him and advised him to solicit the help of Lord Shiva who alone could arrest the torrential flow of the river Ganga and slow her down. Bhagiratha did Tapas or penance once again and appeased Shiva who agreed to do so.

Thus Ganga descended onto Shiva’s Jata, his matted locks; but the river felt so cool and agreeable to Lord Shiva that she remained in His locks. Bhagiratha again had to do Tapas and request Lord Shiva to release her from his locks.

Finally Ganga emerged as a stream and followed Bhagiratha.
While flowing through the hermitage of sage Jahnu, she flooded it, thereby provoking him to swallow the river.

Then, at the earnest entreaties of Bhagiratha she was allowed to emerge from the ear of the sage.
Hence, she got the name ‘Jahnavi’.
She finally flowed over the ashes of Bhagiratha’s ancestors thereby granting them spiritual redemption.
This was possible only because of the tireless efforts of Bhagiratha.

In our culture we have another great ideal, and that is ‘Pativrata Savitri’ who was utterly resolute and determined to revive her husband Satyavan from death. When the Lord of Death, Yama, appeared with the noose to take Satyavan’s soul to the abode of death, she absolutely refused to accept widowhood, Vaidhavya.

Because of the power of her chastity, Pativratya, she was able not only to see Yama but also to follow him.
Thank you for reading

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.

All About Bharatiya Sanatana Dharmam otherwise known as Hinduism : Ch-3.15-4.3.

MEMBERS VERY IMPORTANT TATTVAM, READ CAREFULLY AND REMEMBER TILL YOUR LIFE ENDS."

CHAPTER- 3 :  HINDU DHARMA- 15.4.3.
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.
