RELIGION : PART-1 : UNITY, THE GOAL OF RELIGION -4. Today the world is not peaceful and happy; but full of fear and animosity with each other; more and more weapons of destruction is accumulated by Super powers; Small nations follow them in the same path; Terroism is on the increase, Islamic countries is adapting terror groups, sustain them and use on other peaceful nations; Religions, especially Islam and Christianity failed miserably, Super powers are the culprits, cause for destruction of the world; Here the Swamiji's words are highly valueable, Understand what Swamiji said ..
Respected family members of this great holy Nation.
VERY IMPORTANT FOR THE PRESENT DAY WORLD, PARENTS, TEACHERS, CHILDREN, YOUTH AND GOVERNMENTS :
MANUSHYA JANMAM ( TAKING BIRTH AS HUMAN BEING ) IS SACRED, BECAUSE OF GOOD KARMA DONE PREVIOUS BIRTH;
SO IT IS THE DUTY OF ALL HUMAN BEINGS TO FOLLOW RIGHTEOUS LIFE, AND PRACTICE TRUTH ..
Islam is becoming more and more violent, cheating the vulnerable citizens in the societies / world communities, and forcible conversions by trapping men and women in particular by way of love jihads, terror groups make islam a tool to act at will of their choice, in as many countries, the major so called super powers, with veto the horrible tool to disrupt the UNITED NATIONS DECISIONS, by taking sides of good terror; others helpless, are silent spectators, leading the world into catastrophe ...
Christianity is totally decaying, as FALSE PROPAGANDA, could not achieve any results now as before; no one respects the priest class because of their royal life and their worst low moral standards plus corruptions, sexuual rackets with nuns and weaker sections of societies; followed by cheatings and conversions by false promises -- ( on in the poor / developing countries ...)
Everyone's idea of practical religion is according to his theory of practicality and the standpoint he starts from. There is work. There is the system of worship. There is knowledge.
Listen to Swamiji :
UNITY, THE GOAL OF RELIGION -4.
(Delivered in New York, 1896)
Thus man finds himself driven to a study of the beyond. Life will be a desert, human life will be vain, if we cannot know the beyond. It is very well to say: Be contented with the things of the present. The cows and the dogs are, and so are all animals; and that is what makes them animals. So if man rests content with the present and gives up all search into the beyond, mankind will have to go back to the animal plane again. It is religion, the inquiry into the beyond, that makes the difference between man and an animal. Well has it been said that man is the only animal that naturally looks upwards; every other animal naturally looks down. That looking upward and going upward and seeking perfection are what is called salvation; and the sooner a man begins to go higher, the sooner he raises himself towards this idea of truth as salvation. It does not consist in the amount of money in your pocket, or the dress you wear, or the house you live in, but in the wealth of spiritual thought in your brain. That is what makes for human progress, that is the source of all material and intellectual progress, the motive power behind, the enthusiasm that pushes mankind forward.
Religion does not live on bread, does not dwell in a house. Again and again you hear this objection advanced: "What good can religion do? Can it take away the poverty of the poor?" Supposing it cannot, would that prove the untruth of religion? Suppose a baby stands up among you when you are trying to demonstrate an astronomical theorem, and says, "Does it bring gingerbread?" "No, it does not", you answer. "Then," says the baby, "it is useless." Babies judge the whole universe from their own standpoint, that of producing gingerbread, and so do the babies of the world. We must not judge of higher things from a low standpoint. Everything must be judged by its own standard and the infinite must be judged by the standard of infinity. Religion permeates the whole of man's life, not only the present, but the past, present, and future. It is, therefore, the eternal relation between the eternal soul and the eternal God. Is it logical to measure its value by its action upon five minutes of human life? Certainly not. These are all negative arguments.
To be continued ...
Materialistic civilisation has made man insincere and untruthful. Ruthless, the ship of human is heading fast towards the rock of self-aggrandisement, hatred, aimless living, and eventually self-destruction. The present day world is full of fear, suspicion, crimes, and conflicts, quarrels and struggles. The real ideal religion is forgotten, the spirit of religion is lost, and only a poor external structure remains. Evolve a deeper insight and express it in life.
THE FOOLISH MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS MUST KEEP IN MIND AND AGREE THIS ETERNAL TRUTH ( SANATANA DHARMAM OF BHARATHAM ) AND REFORM THEMSELVES ……….
“He who says he is different from others, even by a hair's breadth, immediately becomes miserable. Happiness belongs to him who knows this oneness, who knows he is one with this universe.”
