THE HINDU RELIGION : 3. "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 -
I should be very glad to see a man who could show me something which is good all the time, and something which is bad all the time. The storm that kills my friend I call evil, but that may have saved the lives of hundreds of thousands of people by killing the bacilli in the air. The Impersonal God we propose is not a relative God; therefore it cannot be said that It is either good or bad, but that It is something beyond, because It is neither good nor evil."
Respected family members of this great holy Nation.
VERY IMPORTANT FOR THE PRESENT DAY STUDENTS : -
Sub : THE HINDU RELIGION : 3.
By Swami Vivekananda.
But what is independent?
Not our body, for it depends upon outward conditions; nor our mind, because the thoughts of which it is composed are caused. It is our soul.
The Vedas say the whole world is a mixture of independence and dependence, of freedom and slavery, but through it all shines the soul independent, immortal, pure, perfect, holy.
For if it is independent, it cannot perish, as death is but a change, and depends upon conditions; if independent, it must be perfect, for imperfection is again but a condition, and therefore dependent.
And this immortal and perfect soul must be the same in the highest God as well as in the humblest man, the difference between them being only in the degree in which this soul manifests itself.
But why should the soul take to itself a body?
For the same reason that I take a looking-glass — to see myself. Thus, in the body, the soul is reflected.
The soul is God, and every human being has a perfect divinity within himself, and each one must show his divinity sooner or later. If I am in a dark room, no amount of protestation will make it any brighter — I must light a match.
Just so, no amount of grumbling and wailing will make our imperfect body more perfect.
But the Vedanta teaches — call forth your soul, show your divinity.
Teach your children that they are divine, that religion is a positive something and not a negative nonsense; that it is not subjection to groans when under oppression, but expansion and manifestation.
