Sub : VEDANTA AS A FACTOR IN CIVILIZATION -4.
(Extract from an address delivered at Airlie Lodge, Ridge way Gardens, England)
Ref : Students duty to study, and not politics; Teachers duty to teach, and not politics, Today, few teachers and students take stupid lessons from some foolish political parties and leaders, such as Communists, Congress, and stupid bunch; Listen What Swami Vivekananda says -
Therefore in injuring his neighbour, the individual actually injures himself.
This is the basic metaphysical truth underlying all ethical codes.
It is too often believed that a person in his progress towards perfection passes from error to truth; that when he passes on from one thought to another, he must necessarily reject the first.
But no error can lead to truth.
The soul passing through its different stages goes from truth to truth, and each stage is true; it goes from lower truth to higher truth.
This point may be illustrated in the following way.
A man is journeying towards the sun and takes a photograph at each step.
How different would be the first photograph from the second and still more from the third or the last, when he reaches the real sun!
But all these, though differing so widely from each other, are true, only they are made to appear different by the changing conditions of time and space.
It is the recognition of this truth, which has enabled the Hindus to perceive the universal truth of all religions, from the lowest to the highest; it has made of them the only people who never had religious persecutions.
"The shrine of a Mohammedan saint which is at the present day neglected and forgotten by Mohammedans, is worshiped by Hindus! Many instances may be quoted, illustrating the same spirit of tolerance."
