“I BELIEVE THEISM AND A ZEAL FOR RIGHTEOUS ACTIONS AS A SACRED DUTY OF HUMAN LIFE”.
These were the first lines of that official Satsankalpa and manifesto which can be called the preliminary proclamation of Yug Nirman Mission. For the first time in March 1962 Akhand Jyoti Magazine Gurudeva Shriram Sharma Acharya while writing about this oath had invited all to read this oath in a congregational manner daily at early morning hours and on auspicious occasions. While addressing all members of All World Gayatri Family, its branches and members who looked after various Jnana Mandirs (Temples of Wisdom) in the September 1962 Akhand Jyoti Magazine he writes that it is a seed thought on the basis of which the possibilities of Era Neo Creation shall successfully materialize.
Only a thinker of revolutionary stature can talk of Era Transformation. Only he can think that this society over shadowed by rotting muck like beliefs shall transform only when each world human transforms him/her self from the very roots. No doubt everyone talks of reforming world dire situations yet by transforming one’s mental state via the power to think awakens great resolves in the psyche so as to transform oneself totally entire world society too shall get transformed positively. Only a scholar who deeply cogitates over Philosophy and Psychology Sciences can think thus. A seemingly impossible task of Era Transformation can be given a social manifestation when its one unit viz. world society and its other unit called family along with innumerable world individuals undergo all round sanctification. When man transforms, contemporary times also transform. As soon as positive transformation sets in our viewpoint the environment too transforms. When each and every world human undergoes neo creation the entire era too shall get neo created. This observation can be made only by a person of Avatar stature who can visualize the future and change present times along with the subtle world for the better.
Of course! Anyone can object saying that ‘Era Neo Creation’ and ‘Era Transformation’ are but gigantic terms full of flowery language. How can all this become a possibility when disparity, separatism and indolent blind beliefs have spread their net everywhere? Can we not skeptically say this is a utopia wherein we are not talking merely of positively transforming individuals and world society but an entire era? The answer is that since at the root of all this is sacred daring, terrific will power and desire oriented energy which is of the stupendous stature of Almighty God who had said: Ekoham Bahusyami. Further the promise of ‘Dharma sansthapanarthaya sambhavami yuge yuge’ given to world humanity is the great resolve of this Super Human and its result is that transformation spoken of in this very distorted fragmented world and wherein all great thinkers of the world are expressing their views regarding it has the principle of individual neo creation as its foundation. This gigantic congregation seen in the form of Prajna Family, All World Gayatri Family, readers of Yug Shakti Gayatri Magazine has been launched to such astounding heights via the Sanjivani of Satsankalpa (oath) which is seen today.
Revered Gurudeva Shriram Sharma writes that for Era Transformation an Avatar is required that shall incarnate preliminarily as sacred aspiration. The subtle form of this Avatar is Yug Nirman Mission’s Satsankalpa or sacred oath. This utterance is of that great personality full of sacred taintless psyche who for his entire lifetime performed terrific austerities for this gigantic cause and thus in this fire of penance he got transformed akin to 24 carat gold. It his marvelous thinking that is creating an atmosphere of transformation in the subtle world. It certainly is not an overstatement if we say that this manifesto has manifested in the form of a sacred vow of Nishkalank Avatar (Taintless) himself.
In this oath Gurudeva gives a prime spot to theism that eggs on individuals to tread the path of divine truth and teaches us all to live a life under the disciplining eye of Almighty God. Theism must be such it obstruct man from entering the portals of escapism and instead induces him to perform Karma Yoga so as to carry out righteous actions. This is true and active self surrender to God. Throwing more light on this revered Gurudeva says that whenever theism fructifies in life man will give main weight age to executing righteous duties. Our duty towards our body involves looking upon it as God’s temple and via the medium of self control and discipline the body must be rendered healthy, disease free and strong. It is even more important to render the mind crystal clear, taintless and sinless in comparison to keeping our physical body healthy. If mental health is sound and good our life force or Prana too shall be rendered sacredly potent. Mental distortions and bad feelings shall no longer harass us and diseases, worries shall run miles away from us. Mental reflection, scriptural studies that aids self introspection and association with great God Realized Saints is that medicine which by obstructing the psyche from running amuck shows it a right direction and eternally inspires it to undergo self creation and soul advancement. For imbibing sacred thinking great literature must be deeply read and ceaselessly one must do self study. By associating with great saintly people by living in large groups people must learn the art of harboring true thinking and this is the 1st lesson of the oath. If even this much is absorbed in one’s daily living that person will positively get transformed and along with this others too shall get influenced greatly.
Further he elaborates that as long as the sentiment of congregationalism does not evolve, as long as each person thinks only of personal selfish gains instead of world well being till then narrow minded personal selfish benefits shall remain in vogue. The root Mantra of spiritual communism as per Gurudeva’s opinion is ‘My well being lies in the welfare of all’. This then is the foundation pillar of unity, equality and social justice the world over. We must think not of ‘Me and mine’ but ‘All of us’ and useless differences of sects and gender must be uprooted. Today when in the entire world colonialism, royal rule and fiefdom has ended and intense opposition is seen regarding castes/sects this utterance was so conducive contemporarily can be realized truly.
Regarding imbibing certain qualities for inspiration for self reform he further says that by looking upon citizenship, ethics, human values, good character, discipline and generosity as true wealth I will march ahead in life by augmenting them manifold. We must pay due attention to the term ‘true wealth’. In this material world wealth is scattered everywhere in varied forms yet true wealth is that which converts human-man into divine-man. The above mentioned qualities if imbibed in daily living man definitely shall attain greatness and glory. He further says that within spiritual practices, self introspection, self control and selfless service to society entire Spiritual Philosophy of the world is embedded. In order to super impose great thinking after soul purification and via disciplined self control and augmenting great activities those who worship world society via selfless service no doubt shall tread the path of his own well being but further shall become an instrument in innumerable others attaining Moksha or salvation.
In reality every alphabet of this Satsankalpa or oath is a seed of revolution. Even if one of these are imbibed in life not only does an individual spiritually progress rapidly but that the doorway of material advancement too is thrown wide open. Not only does the individual transform but those innumerable people in his contact too change positively.
Revered Gurudeva who is an incarnation of Prajna Avatar after Buddha Avatar was completed has given us an aphorism which says that in comparison to traditions Vivek or discrimination shall be given due importance and in comparison to ‘success’ attained via unethical illegal means failure faced while walking the road of integrity/ethics shall be revered and honored the world over. Lest discrimination exists in an awakened alert form in the midst of tradition the waves of blind beliefs pervading every nook and corner of the world shall come to a grinding halt. It is only when true discrimination goes unheeded that vile activities, tainted traditions and blind beliefs grow like weeds. But as soon as the eye of discrimination/Viveka opens all of the vile elements are uprooted. Today in world society human beings after taking up the ‘shortcut’ of unethical means although initially experiences joy on attaining ‘success’ hastily based on lack of farsightedness, ultimately rues and repents at leisure. If only a importance of ethics/integrity is understood on a permanent footing people shall accept that it is full of credit to walk on the path of ethics and lead a life of honesty. Thus man’s success shall be gauged via that test which is based on how much ethics and integrity he imbibes in day to day transactions of life.
Our revered Gurudeva Shriram Sharma writes that true righteousness and religion of this era is that by giving more importance to world welfare than selfish gains for augmenting great world well being endeavors inspires us all to donate one portion of one’s time, talent, earnings, wisdom and hard work. A true Brahmin is one who earns with a 100 hands and donates with a 1000 hands. Thus he inspires us all to imbibe this true Brahmin qualities in our life.
Many have read that ‘Atmanaha pratikulani paresham na samacharet’ yet those who actually imbibe this tenet in life rises high in the eyes of all. If we wish that others behave properly with us we too must behave well with others. All aspects like contact with lay public, art of good management, making others our very own beloved, Sanjivani Science’s art of living etc are embedded in one sentence viz. ‘I shall not act and behave with others in a manner which I myself abhor’.
We can digest only that income got due to hard work and integrity. But if we earn via unethical dishonest means it shall harass us akin to pain of leprosy disease and also teaches us Isaac Newton’s 3rd law of motion which says ‘Every action has an equal and opposite reaction’. By latching on to the path of dishonesty in order to earn untold amounts of wealth a person full of such greed is known to harass and oppress others. They attain the status of ‘human ghosts’ and are censured insulted in society. But those who earn wealth via hard perspiring labor oozing with ethics/honesty is naturally full of generosity, gentlemanly behavior and loves serving the world selflessly. Those who lead spiritual lives must imbibe such ethics of life even if one has to face visible temporary losses.
The next oath is looking upon world women as one’s mother, sister and daughter because due to a tainted vision sexual lewdness and lust crop up like weeds along with other sins. While pointing towards a major foundation of world peace revered Gurudeva writes that half the world’s population consists of females. Hence if we harbor a vision of sacredness and reverence towards them then acts of oppression atrocities inflicted towards women shall halt and then both men and women united shall create a healthy and great world society. No doubt one can live a married life yet by looking upon procreating children only as a righteous duty one must abstain from harboring an outlook towards one’s wife and other women in a sexual lewd/lusty manner. While comparing the importance of women to fire he says that women must be looked upon as one with warm good feelings and the very fount of life. By honoring women’s sacred sentiments she must be given apt opportunities to rise higher in life. If we abstain from a lewd and lustful vision towards women by looking upon her as our mother/sister only then neo creation of individuals, family institution and society is possible.
In the end our respected Gurudeva Shriram Sharma writes that man is the author of his destiny and it is he who designs his fate. Since man is a master of this extraordinary power he must harbor no uneasiness while proclaiming that lest he became supremely great and shall make efforts to render others great too this entire era too shall transform positively. As per the spiritual psychology based principle of ‘Tanme manaha shivasankalpamastu’ this oath is so auspicious and great that this era shall definitely transform because I shall not be the same in future as I appear today. In comparison to the present I shall continue to imbibe more and more great qualities henceforth and akin to iron turning to gold on touching the touchstone called Paras I shall render others who come in my contact greatness personified too. If this were to happen this era shall definitely transform positively because then world society shall ooze with great people, crest jewel like people who inspire everyone to imbibe goodwill towards all and divine personages who are full of sacred sensitivity. The belief that intense effort shall be given weight age instead of fate drips forth in this proclamation, that man is the author of his destiny. Such personalities who via intense labor render their future great and glorious, who spread their great aura everywhere akin to fragrance oozing from sandalwood trees and are called Creators of this Era not only row their boat of life smoothly but take others in their boat to land on safe shores of all round glory. When such people shall rule the world why wouldn’t this era transform? Most definitely this era shall transform.
This Satsankalpa or manifesto written by a Yuga Purusha is a document akin to a pillar of light for the long journey of Era Neo Creation. Later in 1989 this was given a well researched advanced form wherein the main proclamations remained the same as mentioned above. Yet certain aspects were newly conjoined so that they would be useful in contemporary times. In it true understanding, valor and responsibility were conjoined to honesty. In a new way the viewpoint of national unity and brotherhood was again elaborated upon and in the end while expressing his total faith in this oath he writes:
IF WE CHANGE, THIS ERA SHALL CHANGE. IF WE REFORM THIS ERA SHALL REFORM.
When Lord Mahakal speaks thus why wouldn’t humans who are portions of his very divine cosmic soul act accordingly? The auspicious commencement of Era Transformation has already taken place and a New Era is definitely about to dawn. If we place steadfast trust in this and while transforming ourselves we rise higher in stature both materially and spiritually then most definitely the lion like proclamation of our revered Gurudeva ‘21st Century-Bright Future’ shall certainly materialize for all to see.
When desire is purified by the intellect and becomes firm it is called Sankalpa or resolution. The energy of a resolution is infinite in measure. It is the most intense power of the world. This entire cosmic creation is but the firm resolve/Sankalpa of Almighty Lord. The same law applies for attaining other things in this world. Right from the social arena to the world of science whatever well known discoveries and inventions have been witnessed have a firm power of resolve as its foundation. This is required also for neo creation of a New Era.
Circumstances never change merely by increasing material comforts and various resources. Vices cannot be overcome by mere meting out of punishment or instilling fear in a person’s psyche. In fact for all this sanctity and purity of our thinking is most required. If we desire to change our external circumstances we must transform its very fount which is our thinking process. Along with this we must carry out our righteous duties too. For all this definite guidelines are required. And hence Yug Nirman Satsankalpa is a definite step in this direction. The underlying sentiments of this literature are to easily depict at appropriate times, eternal principles and scriptural truths. We can take up the honor of leading in the direction of change with reference to its proper understanding, its deep mental reflection and imbibing of it in day to day living.
- B) THE FOUNDATION STONE OF ERA TRANSFORMATION IS SATSANKALPA OR TRUE RESOLUTION:
The seed of Era Transformation for which All World Gayatri Family is marching steadfastly and zealously ahead is Satsankalpa or True Resolutions. On its basis all our thinking, plans, activities and programs shall be designed. It can be called our manifesto too. Each one of us should daily read it at dawn akin to a daily religious activity and on auspicious congregational occasions, one person should read it aloud and the remaining assembled people must be made to repeat it.
The power of resolve or Sankalpa is infinite. This gigantic cosmos is but the result of a tiny resolve of Almighty God. The Lord harbored a wish ‘Ekoham bahusyama’. It means I am one and I should become many. As a result of this Sankalpa or resolve 3 Gunas and 5 elements manifested and with its aid this gigantic world was created. It is due to man’s resolve that this topsy-turvy world has attained a well managed form. Ere this aspiration had not awakened, a requirement was not experienced the creature called human being too would be awaiting death.
Via the brain when the desires get sanctified so as to take the form of a definite decision it is called a Sankalpa or power of resolve. When the psyche focuses on any resolve then no major difficulty is noted in it getting materialized. The capability of the mind/psyche is unlimited. If a sacredly sensitive will power treads in a particular direction success is tasted with relative ease. If tainted resolves and Sankalpas reach their target what can one say of the power of wholesome great resolves? The cause behind the gigantic building of religion and culture present as a protective umbrella above the scalp of humanity is the resolve of great Rishis of yore. Sankalpa or resolve is the most potent terrific supreme energy in the entire cosmos. Vis scientific research innumerable material forces/energies have been mastered and this credit goes to the power of resolve of world humanity. At the root of progress and advancement noted in the fields of education, medicine, sculpture, industry, literature, art, music etc is human Sankalpa or mental resolve which can be called a tangible Kalpavriksha or Wish Fulfilling Tree. By giving a materialized form to aspirations when man marches ahead in a particular direction of life with a firm resolve doubtlessly he tastes sweet success.
Today every thinking person of the world experiences that in human consciousness those tainted qualities are rising alarmingly, due to which discontent and anarchic situations are manifesting the world over. Under such circumstances it is most required that positive transformation ushers in but yet this task cannot be executed merely by aspiring for it. In fact for this a definite direction needs to be demarcated and collective active steps are required to be taken for the same. Without this our desire shall be rendered a mere figment of fantasy. Era Creation Sankalpa or oath is a firm definite step in this direction. All sacred sensitive sentiments of this manifesto based on the ideal tradition of religions and scriptures has been put forth in a well managed way using straightforward terminology and minimum of words. We must understand this manifesto deeply. We must deeply reflect and ponder over it and decide steadfastly that we shall mold our lives using this very cast (manifesto). Instead of preaching to others we must focus our psyche on self/soul neo creation as mentioned in this manifesto. The most influential way in which you can broadcast this to others is that we ourselves imbibe in our lives, all precepts etched in this manifesto. It is only by neo creating ourselves that an important step can be taken in the direction of Era Creation. It is only when many drops of water unite that the ocean is formed. Similarly when many good gentlemanly human beings gather together a great society is formed. It is the widespread form of individual creation which can be witnessed as Era Creation.
A clarification and detailed analysis of the sacred sentiments of Era Creation shall be read by our respected readers in the following pages. When our mind dives deep into these sentiments its collective form shall manifest as a an Era Aspiration and for its fulfillment many demigods, great saintly people and Almighty God taking Avatar as innumerable humans shall incarnate in this world. That Avatar required for Era Transformation shall first incarnate as a sacred aspiration. The subtle form of this very Avatar is Yug Nirman Mission’s Satsankalpa (oath based manifesto). We must gauge its importance with a very serious mind.
