7. Brahmacharyam is not The Brahmacharin or the Celibate Student-3.

“Never swerve from the duties to the gods and the forefathers.
Regard your mother as a god (Matridevo Bhava). Regard your father as a god (Pitridevo Bhava).
Regard your teacher as a god (Acharyadevo Bhava).
Regard your guest as god (Atithidevo Bhava).
Let only those actions that are free from blemishes be done and not others.
Only those that are good acts to us should be performed by you and not others.

“You should remove the fatigue of Brahmanas who are superior to you by serving them with seats, etc.
Gift should be given with faith, in plenty, with modesty and sympathy.
If there be any doubt regarding rites or conduct, then look up to the lives of great men and follow their examples.
This is the injunction.
This is the teaching.
This is the secret of the Vedas.
This is God’s word of command.
This should be observed.
Thus is this to be meditated upon.”

**Today in Bharatham Brahmacharyam is not practiced well, this results in degradation of character, and ends in rape and abusing women and children *** This is very dangerous to Society, this virus is removed through spiritual practice ......Save ourselves or decay .... *****'

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.
