        Dear Children of this Holy Nation -

       Second Talk - 12.

12.

Shani can bring even the person of the highest fame andgreatest prosperity to the most abject state of disrepute and misfortune.

If his shadow comes into one’s horoscope, one goes through a very bad period (Shani-prabhav).

So Vishvamitra sends Shani and soon Raja Harishchandra loses his kingdom and wealth, is banished and forced to go to Kashi.

There he sees no other way but to sell his wife, Chandramati and son Rohitashva to a rich man to pay his dues to the sage.

In a state of abject poverty he seeks employment under the caretaker of a crematory and to deposit the requisite cremation fees with the owner of the
crematory.

One day his son Rohitashva is bitten by a serpent and dies.

The erstwhile queen Chandramati, who was reduced to work as a domestic helper, has no money for the cremation of her son.

When she takes the body to the cremation ground, Harishchandra recognises her and is shocked to see their son dead in her arms.

She tells him that she has no money and pleads with him to cremate the child but he does not relent and insists that he can only cremate if she can pay the fee.

He says, “I have promised my employer that I will cremate the bodies only after receiving the fee, and so I cannot go back on my word”.

Even in this tragic and dire situation he sticks to his duty and his truthfulness—he  not budge from his Dharma and Satya.

She says, “I have nothing with me to give as a requisite fee.”

The Srauta Sutras which explain the ritual of sacrifices belong to Kalpa.

The sulba Sutras, which treat of the measurements which are necessary for laying out the sacrificial areas, also belong to Kalpa.

The Grihya Sutras which concern domestic life, and the Dharma Sutras which deal with ethics, customs and laws, also belong to Kalpa.

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.

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.
