Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals : 12-13.


"Very important - A Nation is built from the tradition of family! Read carefully, understand, keep in mind and apply the lesson day to day life."

Chapter -12. Yajna – Quintessence of the Culture of India-13.
Deepavali message given on the 25th of October, 1973.


Whatever it is, when knowledge gets adulterated through intense sensory activity, weakness of will and lack of moral force, the understanding of Dharma also falls. So we must have a whip to goad us to the path of Dharma, spirituality and God-consciousness.

The tradition of India, Bharatavarsha, is full of such goading whips. While the Vedas, the Puranas and the epics may be said to be direct teachers in an institution or an academy, the culture of India has also instituted many occasions for bringing home to our minds the facts of our eternal glory and our duties to God, the world and mankind.

We owe three kinds of duties which are mentioned in the eighteenth chapter of the Bhagavadgita: -

"Yajno danam tapas-chaiva pavanani manishinam."

They are Yajna, Dana and Tapas.

Yajna itself contains in its meaning all possible knowledge and the mandate on ethics.

Still we are told Yajna, Dana and Tapas constitute the highest necessity of religion.

While Tapas is the duty that we owe to our own selves,

Dana is that which we owe to others,

and Yajna is that we owe to God.

Tapas is austerity. We must be austere. We must live a very restrained life.

Dana is charitable feeling, charitable nature and charitable act in respect of others,

while Yajna is the self-dedication we make of our own self, wholly and totally, to the Supreme Being.

****THE ABOVE MENTIONED INTENTIONALLY PRETENDING  NOT KNOWING THE ABOVE MENTIONED TRUTH THAT IS "THE YAJNA"

*"BHARATHAM KNOWS THIS TRUTH, AS WE ARE AWARE OUR OBLIGATION TO THE WORLD, AS WE TAKE THIS AS YAJNAM"

Poojya Swami Bhoomananda Tirthaji’s Main Ashram : "Narayanashrama Tapovanam"

The word 'Ashram' (in Sanskrit) stands for an abode of learning or education. It is a pity that even after 50 years of independence; many of us are prone to associate constricted religiosity with the word and dispose of the institutions under such name as engaged in some sectarian practices. Of course, it is only a corollary of the widespread ignorance with which we often stamp our great Bharatiya (Indian) culture as 'Hindu Religion'.

More than the theoretical knowledge of different subjects, education in our country always meant man-making -- purification, fortification and transformation of personality in the holy association of the Teacher, so that the student would become fit to course victoriously through the vicissitudes of life and attain fulfillment.

And Ashrams were the institutions imparting such education. The most important factor underlying the legendary greatness of ancient Bharat was these honored seats of learning - the Ashrams - where the saintly Teacher…

WHERE IS OUR BHARATHEEYA SAMSKARAM?

Rediscover Bharatham!!! Our Father of Nation Mahatma's dream was "Ramarajya in BAharatham". The word secularism may oppose the term used 'Ramarajyam', the term means a land of TRUTH AND VALUES. The Upanishadic culture is the culture of our country. The training given to the citizens of Bharatham to live this Sanatana Dharma is called Hinduism. Bharatham is a Spiritual country. BHA means Knowledge and ratham is one who lives, hence Bharatham means a country where people are living in knowledge. Modernisation, Globalisation , our political parties, our Rulers, our system, our education, parents, new generation, media, our dress code, blind imitation of western countries and many more causes of this. Science and technology is boon for good people, where demonic citizens take advantage and exploit these benefits into criminal activities, we had experience since Atom was mis-used, now the demonic activities is continuing.
Rulers keep open their eyes and ears open and …
