        Dear Children of this Holy Nation -

       Third Talk - 11

3.11.

But then, the fourth which is ‘Atithi devo bhava’—‘Honour the guest as God’ may sound strange! Someone who unexpectedly turns up at your doorstep without prior intimation is to be regarded as God. Maybe an unknown wayfarer on a journey or pilgrimage who has been walking past midday without food or drink and suddenly presents himself at your door expecting your hospitality. If he is an unknown person, then you must go out and receive him and ask, “What can I do for you, brother?” because in terms of the global human family, he is your brother.

The word ‘Atithi’ means he is an ‘uninvited guest’. An ‘invited guest’ is expected. But this person is an unknown and unexpected person at your doorstep. Therefore, he is called an ‘A-tithi’ or one without an appointment. ‘Atithi devo bhava’. Regard a perfect stranger also as God and do everything that you can for him. This is our concept of Paropakara which should not only be towards the people related or known to you, but even to those absolutely unrelated and unknown. As we are fortunately born in Punyabhumi Bharatavarsha, there is no greater Punya or merit for us than being of benefit to others -“Paropakara sama punya nahin bhai.”

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.
