RELIGION : PART-1 : UNITY, THE GOAL OF RELIGION -5. 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; amassing wealth by corruption; fraud land dealings, etc; -- ( 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 -5.
(Delivered in New York, 1896)
Now comes the question : - Can religion really accomplish anything? It can. It brings to man eternal life. It has made man what he is, and will make of this human animal a god. That is what religion can do. Take religion from human society and what will remain? Nothing but a forest of brutes. Sense-happiness is not the goal of humanity. Wisdom (Jnâna) is the goal of all life. We find that man enjoys his intellect more than an animal enjoys its senses; and we see that man enjoys his spiritual nature even more than his rational nature. So the highest wisdom must be this spiritual knowledge. With this knowledge will come bliss. All these things of this world are but the shadows, the manifestations in the third or fourth degree of the real Knowledge and Bliss.
One question more : - What is the goal? Nowadays it is asserted that man is infinitely progressing, forward and forward, and there is no goal of perfection to attain to. Ever approaching, never attaining, whatever that may mean and however wonderful it may be, it is absurd on the face of it. Is there any motion in a straight line? A straight line infinitely projected becomes a circle, it returns to the starting point. You must end where you begin; and as you began in God, you must go back to God. What remains? Detail work. Through eternity you have to do the detail work.
Yet another question : - Are we to discover new truths of religion as we go on? Yea and nay. In the first place, we cannot know anything more of religion, it has all been known. In all religions of the world you will find it claimed that there is a unity within us. Being one with divinity, there cannot be any further progress in that sense. Knowledge means finding this unity. I see you as men and women, and this is variety. It becomes scientific knowledge when I group you together and call you human beings. Take the science of chemistry, for instance. Chemists are seeking to resolve all known substances into their original elements, and if possible, to find the one element from which all these are derived. The time may come when they will find one element that is the source of all other elements. Reaching that, they can go no further; the science of chemistry will have become perfect. So it is with the science of religion. If we can discover this perfect unity, there cannot be any further progress.
The next question is : -Can such a unity be found? In India the attempt has been made from the earliest times to reach a science of religion and philosophy, for the Hindus do not separate these as is customary in Western countries. We regard religion and philosophy as but two aspects of one thing which must equally be grounded in reason and scientific truth.
The system of the Sânkhya philosophy is one of the most ancient in India, or in fact in the world. Its great exponent Kapila is the father of all Hindu psychology; and the ancient system that he taught is still the foundation of all accepted systems of philosophy in India today which are known as the Darshanas. They all adopt his psychology, however widely they differ in other respects.
The Vedanta, as the logical outcome of the Sankhya, pushes its conclusions yet further. While its cosmology agrees with that taught by Kapila, the Vedanta is not satisfied to end in dualism, but continues its search for the final unity which is alike the goal of science and religion.
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.”
