RAMPANT CORRUPTION CANNOT BE WIPED OUT JUST LIKE THAT

15 Jul

POWERFUL BUT VERY CORRUPT:

It is believed that by the year 2025 AD China, India and Brazil shall become very powerful. The power of America, European Union, Japan and Russia shall diminish. Despite this USA will top, followed by china and 3rd spot shall belong to India. This observation has been given by ‘Institute for Securities Studies’ in the report titled ‘Global Governance-2025’. This news is very potent and full of hope. Progress in the communication industry, a large number of people in the Skilled Task Force etc are paving the way for our gigantic economic progress. Since labor charge is very less over here, labor is very cheap in India. Multinational companies hence are blooming here. Indians are hard working, self dependent but yet since poverty, inequality and corruption are rampant will this dream of super power status get realized? Daily new statistics regarding black money force us to ponder whether this journey shall reach its desired destination?

http://www.shriramsharma.com/overcoming_world_destruction_and_ushering_in_neo_creation.htm

EVERY 3rd PERSON IS CORRUPT:

An institute called ‘Transparency International’ ceaselessly monitors corruption the world over. Amongst top 10 corrupt countries of the world India stands at 3rd spot. According to this institution every 3rd person of India is corrupt. They always bribe to get their work done. Corruption has entered the very blood of Indian citizens. Corruption is verily a social taint. Why is it that it has become a status symbol? Today a corrupt person walks arrogantly with head held high. Previously such people walked with heads down in shame. Citizens of India who hope to become an economic super power fail to understand that their nation is becoming brittle and hollow because of blatant corruption. It appears as though it has been full accepted at the social level as a way of life. According to this institute even today 20% of Indians who listen to the call of their conscience live lives of ethics and integrity. 30% are totally immersed in corrupt practice and the remaining stand on its precipice. ‘The more one is wealthy, the more one is honored-this belief that has developed in the past 2 decades is in its true sense a shame and taint on our country.

IS THIS THEN THE SOLUTION?

It will not be correct to write again and again statistics regarding this topic as quoted by Anna Hazare and his related organization ‘India Against Corruption’ and Baba Ramdev’s ‘Bharat Swabhiman Trust’ yet it is important to draw our attention to some important points. We may keep shouting ‘bring back black money hoarded in alien countries’ yet this movement shall not get fulfilled till the very thinking process of our governing bodies transform positively. It is no use if every lay person does not get awakened. When every citizen thinks about welfare of its country, that very wealthy country too shall work for people’s well being.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/overcoming_world_destruction_and_ushering_in_neo_creation.htm

A BIRD’S EYE VEW:

Let us first delve deep into as to why such a situation manifested at all?

  1. a) After economic reforms were ushered in India in 1991 AD people started eking out more income and thus started immersing in sense merriment. It was not as if previous to this black money was not hoarded yet it is only in the past about 15 years that a naked showcasing of sense pleasures and vain pomp has augmented manifold. Where did all this money come from? Hard work, fixed monthly income from jobs, agriculture cannot reap so much cash. For this end short cuts were taken and slowly people started becoming nouveau riche.
  2. b) By joining the government and thus by moving in cars with red/yellow lights one can lead a grand exotic life-this belief has increased in society. Corrupt practices of government and their officers are rising swiftly. Not a few millions but billions of cash is eked out via corruption. No doubt many cases were filed against them in courts but these cases never moved ahead. How can a government’s agency work against officials of the government itself? If one’s own paramour is a police officer whom shall one get scared of? More than 3000 such corrupt officials are leading serene lives. They run their families using ill gotten wealth and arrogantly laughing aloud at others. Nothing much happens even if one or two corrupt ministers get imprisoned. We must unearth that well which contains water mixed with alcohol of corruption and drinking which every addict jumps into the bandwagon of corruption.
  3. c) A majority of people have given up hopes from getting true justice from the judicial system in India. Leaving apart the apex court majority of Indians opine that gaining justice is full of expenses, woven with corruption and full of delays. Regarding judicial reforms a survey was done on about 100,000 citizens of 9 states. 75% of the people bluntly said that they have no faith in justice meted out by courts of laws. Court cases get prolonged for years simply by bribing court officials and thus delaying the whole justice process. Everyone wants judicial reforms. Our Supreme Court made a very fiery observation regarding a High Court saying: Doesn’t everyone know that majority of the judges in your court are corrupt?
  4. d) Income Tax, Sales Tax, Excise and RTO Departments are believed to be extremely corrupt. There is a lot of competition to get enlisted in these departments. These are said to be jobs full of ‘creamy butter’. Majority of lawyers have become wealthy in the past 2 decades by fighting court cases of officials attached to the above departments.
  5. e) Revered Gurudeva Shriram Sharma opined that shirking work is the biggest crime. This exactly is the observation made in a very recent report put forth by ‘Institute of Defense Studies and Analysis’. They write that remaining absent in offices and shirking work is a silent mode of corruption which is eating up India like termites eat up wood. This institute opines that misusing public offices and posts for personal gains is definitely a form of corruption.
  6. f) Many government agencies like Election Commission, CAG, CVC etc are supposed to help obstruct corruption yet dirty politics have entered their very foundation. 75% companies in India due to corporate corruption have to shoulder millions of rupees of loss. Our country India has powerful laws, government is elected and there is a potent democracy yet corruption breeds like flies here. This is because all of above mentioned are involved in it.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/overcoming_world_destruction_and_ushering_in_neo_creation.htm

DOES IT LOOK AS THOUGH TRANSFORMATION SHALL UHER IN?

We certainly do not know what shall be the result of Shri Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev’s hunger strike. It is not so important to know what is happening in New Delhi but what is noteworthy is that whether every individual realizes his/her responsibility or not. As long as we refuse to reform ourselves governance will persist as is seen today and that it shall get worse day after day. Instead of harboring hopes in the political system citizen’s awakening must be directed towards self reform and spiritual evolution. When we all measure our self and soul not on the basis of how much material wealth we possess but how righteous are we in carrying out world welfare duties like cogs in a wheel, then material wealth shall no longer become the be all and end all of life as is seen today. For this end the largest democracy of the world in the next 5 years shall have to undergo a fiery test. Merely by enacting the Jan Lokpal Bill, recalling black wealth stashed away in alien countries and changing the form of currencies shall not bring about a much required total transformation. If at all it sets in it will be due to a desired transformation of the psyche and thinking process. The winds of change shall definitely appear if agitations are carried out against corrupt people in various arenas of life, expensive weddings/parties full of pomp etc.

 

THUS WE SHALL GET LIBERATED FROM TAINTS:

It is only our spiritual advancement that shall help absolve us from the taints of corruption. Thus not only shall we understand the pain of urban but rural population too. Schemes of their all round advancement shall harbinger in via village self rule. In order to uproot corruption we shall have to travel to every district and village instead of visiting air conditioned offices of our capital New Delhi. We must alert and awaken our people. We must help them understand their duties towards their country. Every lay citizen can definitely do this much. We must commence this task ourselves and with our family members and thus if render this aim mobile in entire society the demon called corruption shall easily be defeated once and for ever. This is in fact a type of wine that renders us inebriated. If hence we wish to save ourselves from its dizziness we must become a part of the Thought Revolution floated by Yug Nirman Mission. Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma proclaimed: ‘Corruption can only be wiped out by reforming ourselves first’; ‘If we change, this era shall change’. Thus the onus lies on us to take up this great gigantic responsibility. Instead of finding out what is happening in New Delhi if 10,000,000 people keep an eye on 100 people in their vicinity and help advance a system to awaken them then till 2020 AD India can become a clean, ethical and spiritual country. Hence the million dollar question is: Are we ready to shoulder this great responsibility?

THE SACRED LAND OF INDIA IS MORE NECTARINE THAN HEAVEN

12 Jul

ANCESTORS OF INDIANS WERE ARYANS AND THEY RESIDED IN INDIA:

As per modern history right since childhood we are taught that our ancestors were semi civilized Aryans and they resided in Central Asia. From the North West Frontier they entered India. At that time over here for more than 1000 years an Indus Valley Civilization bloomed forth whose residents were chiefly Dravids. The attacking Aryan Race crushed this civilization and pushed the Dravids to southern India. Then within a few centuries these Aryans created the Vedas, spread their culture in entire India and authored the grat civilization of Ganges.

There is no concrete proof which tells us that our ancestors were Berber, barbaric and uncivilized who had come from abroad. In fact European rulers, missionaries and historians harboring enmity towards India planned this illusory scam. Bankim Chandra Chatterjee while warning us all regarding this illusory mesh and who gave us the Mantra of attaining freedom from alien rule told his countrymen that I must warn you all with very harsh words because European scholars are hell bent on proving to you that Indian history is tainted. They wish to erase all your pride and patriotism for India and want to lead you astray. Even today it is not out of turn to remind ourselves of foreigners aspiring to erase our sense of glory towards India.

The bare fact is that there is no concrete proof that Aryans were aliens who attacked India. This thought palace built on falsehood has been razed to the ground by data unfolded by researchers of truth and facts today. It was at first Swami Dayananda Saraswati who vehemently challenged the opinion that Aryans were foreign invaders and not citizens of India. Swamiji made it clear that the word Arya mentioned in the Vedas does not connote any particular race but that it is an ethical inner quality.

After this Swami Vivekananda too with his divine energy introduced the pride and glory of India to his fellow countrymen. He not only possessed experiential wisdom of Indian literature but that he had deeply studied western history and religion. It did not take him long to decipher the vile designs of westerners as far as Aryans are concerned. That is why in a speech delivered in America Swamiji mockingly said: Your western scholars talk of Aryans arriving in the alien land of India and by snatching away the land of aborigines dwelling there and pushing them away they themselves started residing there. All this is but pure humbug and foolish childish imaginations. It is very surprising that even our Indian scholars accept this observation in a blind fashion. Swamiji was pained to note that such terrible lies are taught to our Indian children.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/the_sacred_land_of_india_is_more_nectarine_than_heaven.htm

Further ahead Shri Aurobindo Ghosh in his book ‘Secret of the Vedas’ has alerted and cautioned Indian citizens of the unfortunate beliefs of European scholars regarding Vedas. He opines that they do not have any proof for the belief that Aryans had invaded India from the North-West region. According to Shri Aurobindo there is no such proof in the Vedas. Also the differences demarcated between Aryans and Dravids too is deluded and illusory. After studying Tamil deeply he found a deep bond between Tamil and Sanskrit languages and found that both these were branches of a primordial language that is no more.

Ten years after Shri Aurobindo the mathematician and language scholar R Swaminarayan Iyer on the basis of profound studies in Tamil concluded that there is a deep relationship between Tamil and Sanskrit languages. According to him Dravid based verbs were of Indo-Aryan origin which as time lapsed by became quite distorted and became very difficult to identify. South India’s language scholar and mathematician N S Rajaram opines based on his research studies that Dravid languages possess fair bit of similarity with Sanskrit language. In a certain sense Dravid languages have kept its ancient Sanskrit nature more secure when compared to North Indian languages like Hindi.

The father of India’s constitution Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar after studying Vedas studiously concluded that the belief of Aryans invading India has no concrete evidence to prove it. This principle is based on past imaginations wherein facts were twisted in a big way to prove their erroneous belief. In Vedas nowhere has been mentioned a separate Aryan race. In it there is no proof that Aryan race had invaded India. There is no evidence of Aryans gaining victory on Indian origin aborigines and that there was never a racial difference between Aryans and Dravids. There is no mention of skin color difference too. If Anthropology is a science that unfolds the caste of people of world society its research proves that both Brahmins and Shudras labeled untouchables originate from one single race. If Brahmins are Aryans it follows suit that Shudras too are Aryans. If Brahmins are Dravids, untouchables too are Dravids.

Neither in Vedas nor texts of alien lands possess proof that Aryan race had their own region outside India. In reality all regions with reference to Aryans like Saptasindhu, Aryavarta, Bharatvarsha etc exist in India itself. In Ramayan, Mahabharat and Purana texts there is a mention of a high statured well developed civilization in India itself that existed for many thousands of years.

A renowned author Bhagwan S Gidwani in his book ‘Return of the Aryans’ has challenged this historical faith that Aryans of European origin after entering India from the North-West destroyed the Harappa or Indus Valley Civilization. Mr. Gidwani came to this conclusion after studying the well known songs and proofs of archaeology and history for many eras pertaining to Aryans amongst people of about 20 countries of India, Europe and Asia. He has strong faith that Aryans are actually original resident of India.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/the_sacred_land_of_india_is_more_nectarine_than_heaven.htm

In 1920-22 digging by India’s Archeology Department in Harappa and Mohenjodaro area has thrown a lot of light on this subject. After many years in other regions too such spots were found which throws light not only on the all pervasive nature of this civilization but also on its well developed nature. This was called the Indus Valley Civilization but as per later research conducted this civilization chiefly resided on the banks of Saraswati River. Hence it is more befitting that it be called the Sindhu-Saraswati Civilization. This continued to exist from 3500-1900 BC. Up till now as per research conducted in 1500 regions this was much more widespread than previously thought of. This civilization had spread out to Iran’s border in the West, in North up to Kashmir and ahead of Hindukush Mountain in Turkmania, Baiktriya, Tajikistan’s foot regions of Pamir Mountains and to the south near Godavri River and in east much ahead of New Delhi it covered an area of 2 million sq km. This civilization was much more gigantic than its contemporary civilization in Egypt or Mesopotamia. Doubtlessly, it was one of the greatest civilizations witnessed in world history.

From all archeological research conducted in the Sindhu-Saraswati region no such proof has come by that says that Aryans had arrived from outside India. It is certainly not proved by the vessels, weapons, writings, art, images etc found here. In fact bang opposite to this civilization has been proved to have a Vedic nature.

In Rigaveda not only one finds a description of ships in the sea but there is also mention of cities along with business and industry which is very similar to that of Sindhu-Saraswati civilization and that it had no relationship with the Berber race of Central Asia. The most special aspect of this civilization was its city development and management whose high stature was seen in Europe after 2000 years lapsed by. It had trade links with alien countries like Oman, Bahrain and Sumer. Its ‘lothal’ got the glory of being the world’s first dockyard and tidal lock.

The coins found here tell us that the religious traditions of this civilization had Vedic leanings. The images of gods/goddesses can be seen seated in Yoga Mudras. Proof of Vedic culture in it can be found on noting that they worshiped fire, meditated on Shakti along with unveiling of images of Nandi, Pashupati and Shiva. Proof that they carried out Yoga practices comes from images of Yogis sitting in meditation and making use of various Mudras. The mysterious Sindhu handwriting script had a bond with Sanskrit language can be proved from various coins dug up from there.

In its widespread form the Sindhu-Saraswati civilization was Vedic in nature whose cultural foundation is conjoined to the Vedas. From the clay of 6000 years nothing has been dug up which proves that this civilization was different from Vedic civilization that is in the form of Hindu religion today. One who vehemently believed that Aryans invaded India, John Marshall too in the book ‘Mohenjodaro and the Hindu Civilization’ has been forced to say that the religion of Indus Valley people so similar to India that in no way today it can be looked upon as separate from Hindu religion. The civilizations of both Mohenjodaro and Harappa are not primordial ones but are well mature ones behind which lies the intense labor of humans for thousands of years at a stretch.

The chief river of Sindhu-Saraswati civilization that is River Saraswati may no longer exist today yet it did exist in ancient times based on proof unearthed from archeological surveys. Via satellite photography this has been proved correct. At the feet of Himalayas it flowed in the Shivalik Mountains. Near Ambala in Punjab it touched the plains. It flowed by the side of the Sindhu River first going to the dessert of Rajasthan, then going to the Kutch dessert area of Gujrat and then merging into the Arabian sea. This was a wide river spanning 3 x 10 km. At one point in time even the Sutlej and Yamuna rivers were its branches. This flow which ended in 10000 BC in the Ice Age was full of brimming waters due to the melting of Himalayan glaciers and ice rocks. After detailed research studies it has been found that River Saraswati many a time changed the direction of its flow due to excess flooding and earthquakes as a result of which Sutlej River starting running towards the Sindhu River and Yamuna started flowing towards the east. From direct proof available it is clear that in between for many centuries the land remained arid as a result of which River Saraswati was partitioned into many branches and by 2000 BC it completely dried up.

In the Vedic Era this was the central region of activities, austerities and spiritual practices of Rishi-Munis (Aryans). In the era of Rigaveda it flowed with full force. Aryans resided on its bank and after getting glorified with its boons and sacred gifts they eulogized River Saraswati. In Rigaveda (2-41/16) it is eulogized as a Supreme Mother and Supreme River.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/the_sacred_land_of_india_is_more_nectarine_than_heaven.htm

From Rigaveda, epic Mahabharat and other Puranas the knowledge of the state of this river can be unveiled from pilgrim spots found on its shores. In the Rigaveda it is written that this great river flows from the mountains to the ocean. In Mahabharat it has been written that this river dried up in a dessert. The opinion of Aryans as foreign invaders depicts that all these texts came into existence after 1000 BC which means that it talks of 1000 years post Saraswati River drying up which is totally baseless.

Archeologists have unearthed 700 spots of different shapes of its dried up bed whereas on the banks of Sindhu River only 100 such spots were found. On this basis too it is fully justified too look upon life giving River Saraswati as the chief region of this civilization. These many spots prove one more thing. The existence of houses in the middle of this dried river proves that River Saraswati had commenced drying up before 3000 BC whereas it flowed in full throttle during Rigaveda era. During a terrible famine around 1200-1900 BC River Saraswati was rendered naught. Due to this many other regions too were hampered. The Sumer civilization of Mesopotamia too got destroyed as a result. As soon as Sindhu-Saraswati civilization got destroyed its indwellers at first headed towards the new flow of River Yamuna and then came to River Ganges. Over here they established a new civilization which we all have inherited on the basis of which we can with pride say our original ancestors were Aryans who were Indians. It was they who rendered India more sacred than heaven too.

THE PROGRAM OF THE DIVINE CREATOR (GOD) WILL NEVER STOP

18 Jun

Human thinking and effort has its own deep import. Its grand results can never be ignored. On changing the direction of the extra potential of the unconscious mind that influences it via the invisible subtle environment those mind boggling transformations seen can only be called a dawning light that is the inspiration of the unseen divine controller of the world. In it where is there place for human effort? It is purely directed by the divine creator or Almighty God which at its own appointed hour in its own way tends to manifest. Have we ever seen human endeavor in the process of change of seasons?

In the last century women backwardness has been witnessed in a manifold way especially in under developed nations. Maybe colonial rule and undesirable elements prevailing for a long time are responsible for it yet in the immediate sense it is not as though someone has tied chains round women in a despotic manner. On the basis of creation and destruction many a time reactions are seen with slow speed for a great length of time and when it ripens fully an explosive kind of situation sets in. in reality its basis has been cast well in advance and on gaining an opportunity it erupts akin to a horrible ulcer.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/twenty_first_century-women’s_century.htm

All this has been spoken of so that instead of pointing at some immediate event for these undesirable conditions we must also see how previous efforts with slow pace are continuing to labor. Plants eaten by worms and a withered tree may seem to fall off due to an ordinary blow yet it is the process of it getting eaten up previously for a fair bit of time that is responsible ultimately. The same holds true for gigantic events related to creation. The world public’s anger gathered over a long time span have resulted in revolutions yet its root cause spans over a great length of time. This then is fate or destiny. The unseen’s wondrous program is executed on this very basis as mentioned above.

In these days waves of women awakening have been noted. The great Yogi Shri Aurobindo calls the 21st century as the ‘Mother’s Century’. Although at the national level or at the world level no such movement has been initiated yet the divine creator has already set about doing so. Many creatures well in advance can gauge potential movements in nature via ESP or extra sensory powers and they themselves move about and perform strange actions. In the same way Shantikunj (Haridwar, Uttarakhand, India) too by correctly inferring future possibilities proclaims that the 21st century is full of such potential wherein world that can be called the pinnacle of progress. Definitely we will see a Women’s Era at an amazing extraordinary hour.

Why will this happen? Who is responsible for it? This may not be answered via logic but those who are capable of gauging movements in the subtle world they can never challenge this premonition that instead of the situation remaining as it is an unseen divine power is executing wholesome useful changes in this world.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/twenty_first_century-women’s_century.htm

Over and above democracy this demand is noted that since human original rights has been given due assent then why not give the same to women along with voting rights? A long time lapsed by when such efforts were made. Progress no doubt was seen slowly and this wave passed on from one country to another. Today the situation witnessed is in the form of a major chunk of the world assenting women’s rights. Only a handful few of them are becoming a mockery by obstructing women’s liberation.

Regarding this why should we search world history for details of dawn of progress, various world movements, birth of talented people and other important events? Today if we see situations around us we can say that speedily mind boggling changes can be seen.

Regarding women’s advancement India has been looked upon as regressive. Over here it is very natural to accept traditions of Sati or burning to death on the husband’s funeral pyre, giving a daughter as charity in marriage, child marriage, selling females, Devadasi, raping them etc and without any opposition all this goes on ceaselessly. Women have been totally ignored as far as education, profession, political rule and leadership is concerned. Even today the tradition of wearing a veil continues. She does not get permission to get out of the 4 walls of her house and carry out important tasks of society.

Political authorities have proclaimed that 30% parliament seats will be reserved for women in India. People zestful about this are demanding 50% reservation. Programs are being made to render women’s education free. There is a high probability of women getting voted right from Lok Sabha to Nagar Palika.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/twenty_first_century-women’s_century.htm

Keeping in mind Islamic Laws our neighboring country Pakistan voted a female Prime Minister and very suddenly all bondages pertaining to women were loosened. In Afghanistan a women’s army that wields all kinds of weapons are exhibiting their prowess. Regarding this those revolutionary reforms introduced by Turkey’s Kamalpasha preparations are being made to execute them anew. Japan’s women confidently claim that they will not only shoulder parliamentary tasks but will take up tasks of various important fields in a big way thus proving that not only is women power not less potent than that of their male counterpart but in fact exceeds it by miles. In fact it was unethical political governance that previously rendered women weak and withered. When the fog surrounding women’s issue is disappearing hook line and sinker why should she henceforth lead a downtrodden oppressed life?

Two women of Indian origin have attained a high post in UK’s and USA’s military. Three buses of Delhi Transport Corporation are driven by women and one controlling group of a jet of Air India has only females in it. In heavy traffic areas women police are seen to direct and control traffic movements deftly.

Akin to Afghanistan even Iran has built a women orienting battalion for its army and it is led by a woman brigadier. Libya’s Col Gaddafi too is following suit. This president opines that women are much more valiant, trustworthy and skillful in comparison to men. In many security forces women wear male dresses and are armed with weapons.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/twenty_first_century-women’s_century.htm

The future of women truly is bright and definitely she will march ahead in various arenas of living. Those who as per changing times in this era of competition in one’s family or contact area encourage and help women lead they will definitely benefit a whole lot like progressive rational people. Those who lag behind will remain indolent and will ignore women issues will definitely remain backward. In fact perforce they will have to do what majority of the world does. One will only repent that despite times changing we in a prejudiced manner kept saying ‘we will address all these issues later’.

WHAT WAS THE NEED OF HEATING AND GETTING HEATED?

4 Jun

After understanding the events while I was managing Shantikunj (All World Gayatri Family HQ in Haridwar, Uttaranchal, India) many visitors and disciples asked the following questions: In the near future you will execute spiritual practice in solitude and will resolve to perform intense penance. Why is this so? When via righteousness and selfless service to the world one can devote to God why should you perform intense austerities in solitude? As a result of this your daily activities like guiding disciples etc will not be possible to execute. By imbibing penance that is full of hardship and living a life of discomfort you will not be able to guide those who otherwise contact you daily.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/subtle_psyche_foresees_a_bright_world_future.htm

This question was full of deep understanding, serious and a bit problematic. As a result while answering this question only those were allowed to participate who for long had imbibed the basics of Spiritual Science.

 

I have said before that up till now all the service activities and spiritual practice executed influenced merely the gross world, the material world. Thus only limited guidance and blessing can be given in this manner. But the future times are going to be dire in an extraordinary manner. For that limited potential is just not enough. In order that special stature intensity manifests nothing less than high stature austerities will succeed. That level of penance akin to those performed by Bhagiratha, Dadhichi, Dhruva and Saptarshis is required which does not limit the gross body to ordinary potential. In fact the need is to penetrate the subtle and causal bodies too so as to manifest an infinite vault of high stature vital consciousness. This in turn will valiantly combat dire circumstances and attain the capacity to manifest divine creations. Further the vile distortions of the subtle atmosphere too can be rooted out with its aid.

 

In these days the clouds of distortion and hardships are looming large. The atmosphere is totally polluted. Poison has entered water and air to such an extent that natural calamities are manifesting in a big way. Various types of pollution in their respective arenas are creating such problems which cannot be overcome via ordinary methods. Famines, war clouds, political instability, crimes, thought based vileness etc are creating such dire situations that it is becoming difficult for life to sustain on earth. Bodily and mental diseases that are rising furiously are now beyond our control. Social goodwill behavior and traditional thinking are rare to find. Methods to ward off undesirable/unethical activities are not succeeding. Individuals and world society at every step are facing danger.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/subtle_psyche_foresees_a_bright_world_future.htm

In order to ward off/decrease the above undesirable elements an extraordinary flow will have to be created. In order to obstruct the defeat of divinity that very Divine Energy will have to incarnate which like Goddess Mahakali will valiantly combat demonic elements and ultimately defeat them. In order that human beings attain this blessing there is no other option but to perform intense austerities. It is only via the energy of penance that divine existence will manifest. Today there is a great need to put into application the methods followed by Rishis and men/women of intense austerities of yore. Hence very challengingly these very steps are being taken.

 

Since time immemorial demonic forces attack and create obstacles when any great task is being executed. Obstacles were created by the demons Subahu, Marich and Tadka when Vishwamitra was performing a great Yajna. Hence he invited Lord Rama and Lakshman to overcome these demons. Demons Kalnemi, Ahiravan and Surasa were trying to bring about the downfall of Hanuman. All these were overcome only with the help of Divine Powers. In the near future this very intense power will have to be generated.

 

Everyone knows how the demons Bhasmasur, Vritrasur, Mahishasur, Aghasur etc created obstacles when divine tasks were being enacted. This time too during the divine task of re-ushering in of the Golden Era demonic forces will attack and utilize their demonic forces so as to create gigantic obstacles. Thus they can be opposed only via the use of very powerful Divine Energies.

 

Many amongst Gayatri Parivar members are aware how time and again vile people as per their capacity have attacked and created obstacles in the Yug Nirman Yojana (Era Creation Program) of Shantikunj. These minor attacks were easily overcome but none knows when terrorists residing in India, neighboring countries and in every corner of the world raise their venomous hoods. Under such circumstances in order to protect world peace such alertness and energy is required which is akin to an entire family of a farmer protecting their fields from getting attacked by animals, birds etc. We may not be terrorists yet we will have to find ways of protecting our selves from terrorist attacks. There is a dire need to root our terrorist attacks on innocents. This is a very widespread and dangerous problem which in order to overcome requires such efforts which is akin to the founder of Santikunj (Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya) performing intense austerities in solitude to amass infinite soul power.

There is no dearth of dangerous situations. No arena in the world is devoid of it. Even without guns etc booming such situations can crop up which can manifest terror, vileness, hardships and anarchy. War is not just something that burns all because there are many cases of cold war too. These create chaotic conditions and there is thus nothing but disturbance everywhere. In order that peace prevails everywhere a lot of infinite potential is required. The present spiritual practice being executed too is of this sort to generate infinite spiritual energy. Efficient ‘weapons’ are required to root out undesirable elements, vile behavior, calamities, unwanted beliefs, error prone activities and mockery of all sort pervading in the world. With ordinary straight forward means vile actions like demanding expensive dowry from the bride one fails to obstruct it. Then how will weak methods overcome dark gloomy clouds of undesirable activities and beliefs that are just mockeries? Like air pollution an atmosphere of unethical behavior too is no less poisonous. Hardships are not only those that are visible in the sky as dark clouds but that their deep roots lie in the subtle world’s atmosphere. In order to uproot it no less than intense soul force is required.

 

Lord Buddha and Gandhiji had not merely given discourses because they had also  fought tooth and nail all vile activities that were widespread everywhere. One can include Dayanandji, Vivekanandaji and Gurugobind Singhji in this category. There may be other reasons why they succeeded in their endeavor but one cannot say that intense soul force did not play a major role. In order to root out hook, line and sinker today’s unwholesome trend in the world such soul force is required. One must not forget Agastya Muni who dried up the ocean and Lord Parshuram who with his hatchet uprooted unwholesome thinking of world society.

 

In future times many dire circumstances will have to be overcome. Also high mountains will have to be induced to bow down. Only then can flat land be made available and a wonderful monument can be constructed. Even to grow food grains flat, fertile land is required. For such goals bulldozers are generally used. In order to grow greenery in desert areas first the land is made flat and then arrangements are made to supply water via streams etc. The same holds true to generate soul power. River Ganges was brought down from heaven by Bhagiratha and the great women of penance Anusuya was responsible for manifesting River Mandakini on earth. Patal-Ganga manifested due to Arjuna’s intense efforts.

Via the rays of the hot sun steam from oceans rises upwards. As a result clouds are formed. It is monsoons that give rise to growth of greenery and food items. This is the greatness of austerities. In order that a radiant future manifests in the 21st century intense spiritual practice and penance is required. It will not manifest merely by chanting Mantras. It is the required energy of austerities that can melt the snow of Himalaya Mountains and thus satiate the thirst of millions. There are many such causes correlated to the austerities performed by many. This intense penance has been commenced by the founder of Shantikunja’s Gayatri Family.

THE SOLAR DEITY’S WRATH IN THE 21st CENTURY

17 May

The sun is the chief of the solar system. According to the Vedas the sun awakens us in the morning so that we act aptly all through the day. The sun is said to be the ‘soul’ of all movable and immovable objects. Within the entire cosmos the sun moves about ‘mysteriously’ and is a silent witness of the actions of all living beings. In Greek language the sun is called “Helios”. It means that which is radiant and brilliant in nature. This radiance of the sun is but a manifestation of the intense infinite energy it harbors within its core being. It is because of this that life sustains on planet Earth. According to modern scientists that ball of brilliant light seen by us and is called the sun manifests certain movements. They in turn manifest as flames and black spots or sun spots.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/heralding_a_radiant_world_future_in_the_21st_century.htm

No doubt the sun predominates gigantically in our solar system and yet it is a mere star with reference to the galaxy in which it exists. The distance between the sun and our earth is 1.4 billion and 9.6 million kilometers. Despite this solar rays take merely 8 minutes to reach our planet from the sun. The diameter of the sun is 1.3 million and 92 thousand kilometers. From our standpoint while visualizing the sun from our planet it is very difficult to imagine the sun to be so much more gigantic, heavy and blazing than our earth.

 

The temperature in every area of the sun is not equally distributed. The surface temperature is 6000 degrees Celsius. It is solar energy that is at work behind the sun’s light and heat principles. Solar energy is the very life force of our planet earth. As a result life proliferates and sustains on earth. This solar energy is a manifestation of the ‘nuclear’ activity of the sun. In that hydrogen gas is converted to helium. In the sun’s core/central region within one second 564 million tons of hydrogen gets converted to 560 million tons of helium gas. Energy of 4 million tons hydrogen manifests from the sun in the form of solar rays. The sun emits 3.8 x 10 raised to -26 Joules energy/second into interstellar space.

 

For the past 5 billion years the sun has been converting air around it into solar energy which is used up as and when required. Its temperature on the surface region too is not equally distributed. In the sun’s Photosphere the temperature is 6000 degrees centigrade. One layer of its uncontrolled atmosphere is Photosphere. Between these 2 is a layer whose temperature is 4500 degrees centigrade. This is the ‘coldest’ region on the sun. During the duration between the commencement and ending of a solar eclipse it is seen as a magnet freeze.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/heralding_a_radiant_world_future_in_the_21st_century.htm

On the surface of the sun where the temperature is less and there exists only cold and dark gloominess is called Sunspots. The temperature of a Sunspot is less than 2000 degrees centigrade of the temperature of its neighboring gas. It is around 4000 degrees centigrade in the Photosphere. These spots tend to move as couples or more in number and their life spans between a few days and a few months. These Sunspots were first discovered by that great scientist Galilee.

 

The sun is never known to be clam and serene. This is because movements within it always exist. These movements are so intense at times flames appear on the sun’s surface. According to USA’s material scientist Unin Norman Parlor a continuous flow of hydrogen ions and helium ions are emitted by the sun. In this flow the number of electrons and protons are equal. It is also called solar wind which has a speed of 1.26 to 2.88 million kilometers per hour.

 

From Sunspots solar flames erupt forth in the form of energy. With its heavy intensity it scatters the particles of solar wind which in turn some times crosses the boundary of planet Earth and appears over here. These energy particles create intense magnetic fields on planet Earth. As a result all modes of communication can get flattened to the ground. In outer space solar flames get spread out in billions of miles area. Until today solar flames were seen in their most terrific form on 28th Feb 1942, 19th Nov 1949, 13th Sep 1971 and April 1990.

 

At the end of the 20th century i.e. in the year 2000 AD solar movements were seen again in a more intense form. In the year 2000 AD i.e. 3rd and 4th Mar blasts of intensity of billions of hydrogen bombs with the potential of 100 mega tons were recorded on the sun’s surface. As a result of this there was a storm of UV rays in the Earth’s central region. According to that famous outer space scientist R.S. Srivatsava as a result of this episode on that day between 11 am to 1.30 pm the overall situation was very dire because of the X-ray and UV ray storms that lashed out on planet Earth.

 

According to USA’s J M Fridge and Dr R.S. Srivatsava there are 2 points on the sun’s corona. These points are called 8882 and 8881. In present times these points have suddenly become very active. From both these points about 20 billion tons of corona material is emitted which constitutes a part of its storehouse of rays. It has a speed of 3000 kilo meters/sec. At any time its direction can point at Earth. Ordinarily its speed is 10000 times more. Amongst these one finds gamma and beta rays included too. With reference to these geological incidences Delhi University’s scientist Prof Vishnu Bhatia has clarified that sometimes the earth’s magnetic field agitates high energy particles emitted by the sun. Recently an incident of this type recurred and the earth was saved from great danger.

 

Very rarely does one see a destructive form of global turbulence but on the sun they have recorded even more intense and ghastly agitations. As a result of this sunspot based activities reach their peak every 11 years. In turn because of this time and again there occurs a change in the shape and form of solar based aura. The temperature of very sensitive magnetic fields found on sunspots is less when compared to other regions. In other magnetic fields (other areas) electrons, protons and ionic electric fields move along tortuous paths. This is why the 11 year wheel of solar activity marches ahead. Every 11th year this activity reaches its peak. On 24th April 1990 AD during such a solar agitation it was noted that certain materials of the NW region of the sun had separated speedily. These materials have spread themselves at a distance of 1million kilometers from the sun.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/heralding_a_radiant_world_future_in_the_21st_century.htm

Due to high activity of sunspots on an average one notes the appearance of a multi colored polar aura. In the North Pole this light is called Aurora Borealis and on the South Pole it is called Aurora Austrealis. The electrical particles of magnetic storms emitted by sunspots get attracted to the magnetic regions of Earth. As a result one can see beautiful scenes related to light on the Earth’s Polar region. The rays emitted from solar turbulences reach the Earth’s Ionosphere. As a result the earth’s magnetic regions get influenced by it. The highest intensity of solar agitations creates further turbulences on the Earth’s Ionosphere. In turn there is a greater probability of magnetic storms manifesting on Earth. What then ensues is an obstruction of radio wave transmissions and thus there is possibility of chaos in the supply of electricity. Our earth has experienced this dire situation umpteen number of times already. These geological incidences had destroyed the electrical supplies of many nations. In Canada the Hydrocubic Electric Machines had been shattered and for hours many regions of Canada and USA had to go without electricity for a certain time span.

 

At present the sunspots have been increasing since 1996 and they reached their peak in March 2000 AD. When magnetic movements increase on the sun uniformity is noted in its aura but when magnetic movements decrease many colors are seen in its aura that spread out in inter stellar space. A weather scientist of USA’s “National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration” Mr. Gary Hackman maintains that the present eruptions on the solar wheel and the resultant dire storm of rays has passed nearby planet earth at a distance of 0.15 million kilometers. It should be looked upon as nothing short of divine grace. If this were not true artificial satellites that have been set up in inter stellar space and their dependent institutions would have been the target of one of the direst world catastrophes.

 

All such solar movements/activities indicate an imminent widespread change in the world. Eminent world scientists opine that because of such movements a great transformation will duly be witnessed the world over. They say that the shape of earth will no doubt not change but that nature will transform in totality. This can also be seen as a form of transformation of the 21st century which will herald a New Era.

THE TANGIBLE MIRACLES OF GAYATRI MEDITATION/WORSHIP

9 May

THE ALL POWERFUL/OMNIPOTENT GAYATRI

 

Gayatri, Gita, Ganga and Gau (cow) are the 4 pillars of Indian culture. Amongst these Gayatri reigns supreme.

 

All Hindu scriptures, sects, Rishis etc proclaim in unison that Gayatri has a deep import and message for world humanity. In Atharva Veda (19/71/1) Gayatri has been eulogized wherein it is said that Gayatri meditation blesses its devotee with a long healthy life, a strong vital force (Prana), divine energy, fame, wealth and God Realization. Rishi Vishwaamitra says: No other Mantra of the Vedas is as glorious as Gayatri Mantra. All the Vedas, Yajnas, charities, austerities etc put together are a mere shadow of the all powerful Gayatri. Lord Manu says: Brahmaaji (creator of the world) has given us the true essence of the Vedas in the form of the Gayatri Mantra. Once the deep import of Gayatri is understood and imbibed truly, the entire Vedas will be understood by the devotee. Maharshi Yaajnavalkya says: Place all the Vedas in one pan of a weighing scale and the Gayatri Mantra in the other pan. Know for sure that the Gayatri pan will be much heavier.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/the_tangible_miracles_of_gayatri_meditation.htm

Rishi Parashar says: He who has not imbibed Gayatri deeply is indeed lowly (Shudra). Rishi Shankh says: Gayatri catches hold of a man’s hand about to fall into the ocean of hell and thus saves him from pain and anguish. Rishi     Shaunak says: Gayatri is that Divine Mother who gives birth to infinite material and spiritual wealth. Rishi Atri says: One who truly understands the deep import of the Gayatri principle shall no longer face any hardship of this material world. Vyaasji says: If one truly imbibes Gayatri it becomes a Kaamadhenu or wish fulfilling cow. The river Ganges washes off our bodily sins and Gayatri sanctifies our psyche/soul. Rishi Bhaaradwaaj says: Gayatri meditation helps us realize God/Self and man attains heaven and salvation (Moksha). Naradjee says that Gayatri is a direct incarnation of Divine Energy. Vasishthaji says: If a very lowly person who performs innumerous illegal and criminal act performs Gayatri devotion, he/she too can attain a very high inner spiritual state. There is such a great amount of literature in religious scriptures that deal with the greatness of Gayatri meditation that if all of them are published a new gigantic book will have to be printed.

 

Just like saints and Rishis of the past even contemporary wise saints and sages accept the greatness of Gayatri devotion. Mahatma Gandhi (Father of India) says that Gayatri Mantra chanted with a calm and steadfast mind helps one overcome even those obstacles which otherwise appear insurmountable. Lokmaanya Tilak says: Gayatri Mantra inspires us all to give up the path of falsehood, crime, illegality etc and instead march ahead on the path of truth, honesty, ethics and sacred ideals. Mahatma Madan Mohan Malvyaji says: Amongst all the priceless jewels given to world humanity by all saints and sages, Gayatri reigns supreme.

 

The great Indian poet and Nobel Laureate Raindranath Tagore says: Without any room for doubt Gayatri Mantra can awaken the soul of the entire nation. The great Yogi Shri Aurobindo opines that infinite energy rests in the Gayatri Mantra. Swami Ramkrishna Paramhans said that Gayatri Mantra bestows many Sidhis (divie powers) to its unswerving devotee. His disciple Swami Vivekanand maintains that Gayatri is the crest jewel amongst all other great Mantras. Adi Guru Shankaracharya says that it is impossible for the limited human intellect to describe the true greatness of Gayatri. Swami Ramtirth says that Gayatri wards off ‘Kama’ (desire) and replaces it with ‘Rama’ (God).

 

Maharshi Raman says: Gayatri gives its devotee both material and spiritual benefits. Swami Shivanandji says: Gayatri Mantra chanting keeps our body healthy and fit, ones character becomes radiant and pure, ones intellect becomes subtle, farsightedness augments and mental focus becomes very sharp.

 

The founder of Arya Samaj Swami Dayanand Saraswatiji was a great faithful devotee of Gayatri. He laid great stress on Gayatri devotion. Once, Swamiji told the Maharaja of Gwalior: It is more beneficial to perform Gayatri Purascharan (worship) instead of a Bhagwat Saptah (7 day discourse). Shri Dayandji had conducted Gayatri Yajnas on a gigantic scale in many regions with the help of about 40 Brahmins for each program (Anushthan).

 

Gayatri is the wish fulfilling cow of our material world. Man can fulfill all those desires which are appropriate and most required with Gayatri’s grace. It is also called nectar because it satiates the thirst of ones soul and thus established infinite/eternal peace. Gayatri is so omnipotent that it can overcome ones vicious cycle of birth and death i.e. one attains salvation. A devotee who clings to the ‘skirt’ of Mother Gayatri renounces lowliness and ascends to the peak of both material and spiritual peaks. Hence it is also called Paras Mani (touchstone). There is no restriction whatsoever as to who is eligible to chant the Gayatri Mantra. Thus a householder, mendicant, male, female, children, aged people etc have equal right to chant Gayatri. In short Gayatri is the birthright of entire world humanity. Ignoring this right is akin to neglecting ones righteous duty to execute meritorious deeds.

http://www.shriramsharma.com/the_tangible_miracles_of_gayatri_meditation.htm

Gayatri Mantra transforms our psyche in a total and positive manner. As soon as a devotee starts chanting this Super Mantra he experiences certain movements in his/her psyche which in the long run benefits one both materially and spiritually. When Sattva Guna (purity of heart) augments vile qualities, bad thoughts, lowly character and feelings of hatred/enmity start diminishing significantly. Simultaneously positive qualities of the human mind like sweetness of speech, honesty, truthfulness, generosity, self control, humility, purity, zest, zeal, cosmic love, contentment, peace, service, oneness of soul etc augment in the devotee’s psyche more and more as days go by. As a result society at large is impressed by a Gayatri devotee’s character and activities and hence they eulogize this devotee, show gratefulness, harbor faith and respect this devotee. Time and again sincere Gayatri devotees are helped by one and all be it any corner of the globe. Further these divine qualities in a Gayatri devotee’s soul are so nectarine that the devotee swims in the ocean of divine love and supreme peace/contentment in his sacred soul. Such great devotees eternally rejoice in the heavenly love and peace of their cosmic soul.

 

Sincere Gayatri meditation results in an extraordinary transformation of one’s psyche. In the sense because sense of right/wrong, farsighted vision, spiritual values and a subtle divine wisdom augments all sorrows which have their basis in spiritual ignorance/blindness (Avidya) are destroyed from their very roots. As per ones destiny certain fruits of ones past actions one has to face dire situations in life. On the one hand laymen with ordinary limited psyches face circumstances like loss, agitations, obstacles, illnesses, hardships, separation etc with great suffering. On the other hand a Gayatri devotee full of a strong will power faces these very dire situations with wisdom, immense patience, steadfastness and valor. Such a devotee actually experiences God’s grace under all circumstances and hence smiles whether he/she encounters pain or joy (their psyche is perfectly balanced while facing dualities like profit-loss, pain-joy etc). Hence external circumstances of dualities can never affect the untold divine bliss he/she experiences at the soul level.

 

The supreme goal of all human lives is attaining a powerful soul force and it is the fruit of Gayatri meditation. Apart from this many material gains too are attained by a Gayatri devotee. These gains include overcoming illnesses, weakness, joblessness, business losses, household quarrels, mental taints, court cases, enemy attacks, lack of marital joy, intellectual weakness, unbalanced psyche, harassment of ones own children, problems of getting ones children married, apprehension of facing a bad future, fear of failing in ones exam, bad habits like drug/alcohol addiction etc. All these and many more material problems faced by us all daily can be warded off successfully via Gayatri devotion and meditation.

 

Behind all dire situations lies our erroneous attachment to material objects which in turn manifest as problems, taints and inaptness. Gayatri devotion augments purity and focus of our psyche. Further positive changes take place in our eating habits, daily routine, viewpoint and character. Thus this very transformation of ones psyche is the royal path which wards off hardships and strife in our lives. Many a times it so happens that our aspirations, desires, yearnings etc are not in tandem with our individual capabilities and circumstances faced which are the results of our past actions. Hence a wise person who has purified his intellect and psyche renounces unwholesome and illusory desires and thus escapes the painful net of delusion. Of course there are certain situations that one has to face as per ones destiny which cannot be overcome. An ordinary layman will face them crying and wailing aloud but a mature Gayatri aspirant will face them with a calm smile because his/her psyche oozes with infinite divine power to face anguish.

 

Gayatri worship is also executed to overcome some special hardship faced in life and also to fulfill special requirements. Majority of the times Gayatri worship has succeeded with reference to this. Time and again it has been seen that the one who stares at hopelessness, failure, apprehension and fear performs Gayatri worship with immense devotion experiences Vedmata Gayatri’s blessings. Hence the previous situation of despair and anguish is converted into joy and success. It is because I (revered author of this e-book) have had the good fortune of experiencing many such incidences my faith is indomitable that no Gayatri worship performed with faith and devotion fails in the long run.

 

Gayatri spiritual practices are those spiritual exercises which definitely augment ones soul force substantially. It is commonly seen that many people learn wrestling and body building exercises so as to combat other powerful wrestlers or win prizes in body building contests. Suppose a budding wrestler loses a wrestling bout it should certainly not be misconstrued that his efforts of learning wrestling have gone in vain. In fact the more he perseveres to toughen up his body the more benefits he will accrue as days go by. Similarly there are many achievements in life like good health, beauty, long life, capacity to work very hard, marital bliss, children of good character, bigger income, no fear while facing foes etc that are no less important when compared to winning a wrestling or boxing bout. Thus assuming that a person performs spiritual practices with a definite aim in mind but this aim is not achieved never rue that ones efforts have gone totally in vain. This is because the divine energy that manifests due to spiritual austerities will get stored in the psyche and will be of great use in future while facing other destinies of life.

 

The soul itself is the head quarters of all cosmic divine powers (Ridhi-Sidhi). All the powers owned by God have been inherited by God’s ‘princes’ viz. human beings. Although all divine powers exist in the human soul yet they are latent. It can be compared to fire covered by a lot of ash which makes it capacity to blaze very weak. Similarly taints in the human psyche like lust, greed, jealousy, hatred etc is the ash that covers the divine powers present in each individual soul. Gayatri meditation helps destroy this veil of taints and just as when the above mentioned ash is removed the fire which was previously weak starts blazoning forth in full flow. Similarly on destroying the veil of taints in our psyche via Gayatri devotion the otherwise latent powers now manifest in full strength. Those divine glories achieved by great Yogis via intense austerities are attained with relative ease and speed via Gayatri devotion.

 

In ancient times great Maharshis attained many divine powers like Animaa, Mahimaa and other Ridhi-Sidhis via intense austerities and Yoga based practices. Indian Mythology describes scores of such miraculous powers attained by Yogis etc of yore. And yet it prudent to note, that these Yogic and other forms of austerities had their roots in Gayatri devotion. Even today there exist great saints and sages who manifest miraculous divine powers. All of them agree that apart from Gayatri devotion no other spiritual endeavor can help you achieve your spiritual goal with greater ease and speed. In the past apart from great Sidhas even Chakravartis of the solar and lunar dynasty have followed the path of Gayatri. Brahmins of yore became Gurus of the world due to power attained via daily Gayatri worship and same is the case with Kings of past who ruled the world (called Chakravartees).

http://www.shriramsharma.com/the_tangible_miracles_of_gayatri_meditation.htm

Muni Vasishthaji owned a wish fulfilling cow (Kaamadhenu). With its help he could overcome Rishi Vishwamitra’s gigantic army. He was instrumental in ensuring that King Dileep and Dashratha’s (Lord Rama’s father) lineage did not get destroyed. Not only this but that their lineage produced great Kings. All this was due to the grace of the wish fulfilling cow and the cow is none other than Gayatri. King Dileep along with his consort daily served this cow devotionally and drank its milk (grace) reverentially. In this manner Rishis of yore performed many spiritual and Yogic penances which had their roots in Gayatri devotion. Rishi Dadhichee became an infinite aura of Gayatri energy after performing intense penance. Indra defeated the Asuras (demons) with the help of a thunderbolt or Vajra made from Dadhichee’s bones. Gayatri is called a Brahmaastra or divine weapon. Its attack never goes in vain. Gayatri is the wish fulfilling cow of this material world. He/she, who devotionally drinks its milk (blessings) regularly, never encounters suffering, despair, discontent or lack of satiation.

 

Brahmaji created the 4 Vedas with the help of the 24 letters of Gayatri Mantra. In order to throw more light on the deep import of these Vedas Shaastra, Darshan, Brahmana, Aaranyaka, Upanishad, Smritee, Sootra, Purana, Itihaas etc were written. In this manner Gayatri is the Mother of the Vedas which deal with material and spiritual science. If one truly imbibes the meaning of Gayatri one will become an adept in all Vedic scriptures.

 

The 24 priceless letters of Gayatri can be used as a test to decide which activities in our daily life will prove beneficial both materially and spiritually on a long term basis. Every letter is like a jewel of immortal message. The divine sound “OM” teaches us that since God pervades every pore of the cosmos do not act in an unwholesome manner and more importantly do not harbor vile thoughts albeit even secretly. “Bhoohu” teaches us to avidly search for those causes that destroy us and replace them with those that uplift us in an all round manner. “Bhuvaha” tells us to carry out our appointed duties very meticulously and after having done that accept the results as God’s grace. One must scrupulously avoid unwholesome actions even if they give material gains for the short term because ultimately the irrevocable Law of Karma (actions) will tighten the noose of hardships round your neck. “Svaha” means develop a balanced psyche that faces dualities like joy-sorrow, pain-pleasure, profit-loss, good-bad etc very calmly and without going overboard due to grief or joy as the case may be. “Tat” means do not look upon the pleasures attained via the body and senses as the be all and end all of life. Sense pleasures are short term gains which have to end at a certain point in time whereas spiritual gains are long term i.e. eternal. “Savituhu” means imbibe wisdom, sacred intellect, good health, legal wealth, wholesome name and fame, world friendship, positive valor etc. “Varenyam” tells us to imbibe truly only that which great in this world of dualities. “Bhargo” tells us to keep pure our body, mind, wealth, home, clothes and behavior at all levels of life. “Devasya” means developing a generous and farsighted psyche. “Dheemahee” means imbibing good qualities, great character, divine glories and high thinking. “Dheeyo” means not blindly following some individual, literature or sect. Give up this herd mentality and imbibe that which is apt and beneficial both materially and spiritually in the long run. “Yonaha” tells us to imbibe self control, penance, wisdom, endurance, tolerance, hard work, economical living and divine powers so as to use them for world well being. “Prachodayaat” tells us to inspire fellow beings, help the weak and downtrodden to higher statures in life, egg others to imbibe ethics/values, imbibe zest and zeal, remain contented and serve all equally in the world.

 

In all Vedic scriptures many precepts have been enumerated and their gist has been detailed in the above paragraph. If we truly imbibe all the above qualities know for sure that we will become scholarly masters of the Vedas. The 24 letters of the Gayatri Mantra encompasses within itself the scheme, ethics, thought perception and mode of action for leading a divine life. A Guru (preceptor) helps his disciple to walk in this direction on the basis of apt guidance. Thus our life of ideal takes birth with the help of our Mother Gayatri and Father in the form of a realized saintly Guru. Such a disciple is called a Dvija i.e. twice born.

 

The 24letters of the Gayatri Mantra have been woven so wonderfully that mere chanting of it activates subtle energies in the subtle nerves (Naadis) of the tongue, throat, brain centre and palate. Just as when one hits the keys of the keyboard of a computer corresponding alphabets get typed on the screen so too the moment the tongue chants the Gayatri Mantra various Chakras (Plexus) of the body get activated and they manifest subtle energies. Apart from the Chakras various Bhramars (energy eddies), Kamals (lotus), Granthis (energy knots), Sansthans (centres) etc get awakened. The Naadis (subtle nerves) of the mouth transport the impulses of Gayatri Mantra chanting to the various Chakras (plexus) of the body. Just as when the strings of a guitar or sitar (Indian musical instrument) are twanged a beautiful lilting tune emerges similarly when the Gayatri Mantra is chanted with devotion the latent energies of the bodily Chakras are activated and thus the devotee manifests a divine aura. In this manner Gayatri Mantra chanting subtly commences Yogic practices and when the subtle energy centres of the body are awakened they benefit the devotee both materially and spiritually in an extraordinary manner.

 

Gayatri devotion has 2 legs: 1) By imbibing the subtle teachings present in the Gayatri Mantra one becomes a true human being and 2) Performing austerities so as to activate subtle divine powers in the soul. Both these aspects are essential to imbibe by a Gayatri devotee. The grace of Goddess Gayatri manifests in the heart of that devotee, whose psyche adheres to righteous living, ethics, high ideals, principles and pious activities in his/her day to day living. Gayatri austerities induce a subtle kind of churning in the devotee’s psyche which manifests divine energy that was present albeit latently. It is this divine energy that helps a devotee face trials in life very calmly and this in turn augments his/her will power by leaps and bounds.

 

Gayatri is called Tripadaa or3 legged. She has 3 eyes and carries a Trishul (weapon). They represent the 3 principles 1.Bhooha 2.Bhuvaha 3.Svaha. “Bhooha” means wisdom, intellect, discrimination, love and pious actions. “Bhuvaha” means wealth, grandeur, status, high stature, enjoyments and material glory. “Svaha” means health based power, daring, valor, enterprise and hard work. The aim of Gayatri devotion is to imbibe all the above 3 types of powers. The more one progresses in devotion many qualities, actions and characteristics manifest and these are the ones who breed wisdom, grandeur and energy in the devotee’s life. Wherever these qualities manifest material means and comforts too will come unasked along with them.

 

I have read innumerable religious texts and thus I conclude that none can match Gayatri’s supremacy (although the author without doubt respects all religions and saints of the world). Ancient Rishis and Maharshis had performed Gayatri Super Mantra based penance and thus attained greatness. In my common routine life I have seen so many miracles associated with the Gayatri Mantra that I have unswerving faith in its divine prowess. Up till now I have performed 24 Mahapurascharanas of Gayatri (1 Mahapurascharana means chanting the Gayatri Mantra 2.4 million times in a certain time frame). There were so many profound miracles witnessed by me (personally) that it is best I do not list them here. Under my guidance many have executed Gayatri penance albeit on a low scale and yet they too have witnessed many amazing miracles. Thus it goes to show that even a minor effort of Gayatri devotion never goes in vain.

I know many people who previously lived a life of lack and poverty. To the extent that even their most basic needs of survival were hard to obtain. They were under tremendous financial pressure like debt etc. Their business was amassing nothing but losses. They then took recourse to Gayatri devotion and lo behold! They not only cut their losses but earned so much wealth which could emit envy in other people’s eyes. I have known people who were less educated and on lower job posts get good increments and promotions as a result of Gayatri devotion. Those people whose IQ was very weak attained a sharper brain so as to become good scholars in their respective fields of study. Many students who previously failed in their exams despite hard work passed them with flying colors due to Gayatri worship. People who wanted to overcome mental taints like indolence, agitation, quarreling nature, anger, addiction (drugs, alcohol etc) and other unwholesome habits took recourse to Gayatri meditation so as to experience amazing transformation.

 

Gayatri devotion related benefits accrue in all spheres of life and these maybe both material and spiritual. Married couples who fought like cats and dogs, mother-in-laws and daughter-in-laws who could not stand the very sight of one another etc executed Gayatri devotion. The result was they now lived amicably with a sense of love and respect for one another. Brothers who previously warred against each other for property, wealth etc later lived with true camaraderie like Lord Rama and his brother Lakshmana (epic Ramayana) because they surrendered to Goddess Gayatri. Gayatri worship has quelled all forms of household strife. An innocent person who was a victim of false court cases, fraud allegations, murder, crime etc would later face them fearlessly with the grace of Gayatri. Those people who feared enemy attacks for no fault of theirs took recourse to Gayatri meditation and thus they remained unharmed and fearless.

 

Gayatri has helped so many devotees to overcome trying circumstances in life. There have been cases where patients who were about to be engulfed by the God of Death (Yamaraaj) escaped his net due to Gayatri’s compassionate grace. Many have overcome attacks by ghosts, bad dreams, unconsciousness, coma, weakness of the heart, miscarriage problems during pregnancy etc solely due to Gayatri’s blessings. Leprosy patients have been cured totally. Gayatri devotion helped purify the psyches of many devotees who got bad dreams, faced strife in life etc because of a tainted mind. When the mind was purified all their problems vanished into the thin air. Devotees who suffered from diseases, that were both painful and deadly, managed to overcome them by surrendering to the Mother of the Vedas i.e. Gayatri. Diseases like paranoia, plague, pneumonia and many others have been cured by Gayatri Mantra chanting with faith and devotion.

 

I have seen devotees of Gayatri overcoming psychosomatic diseases that result due to tension and worries. Those who were agitated mentally because of the death of a dear one, loss of wealth, huge debts, apprehension of failure, huge expenses for ones daughter’s marriage, separation from ones beloved, loss of jobs, poverty, insults, deadly diseases (cancer etc), attack of enemies, apprehension of a bad future etc attained great peace of mind once they commenced Gayatri meditation dedicatedly. In many cases devotees have been helped in many strange ways or that their will power has become so potent that no sorrow or pain could create turmoil in their psyche. Others have been aided by divine inspiration and guidance after their hearts were purified via Gayatri devotion. But what has been common to all of them that they faced hardships of all kinds with grit, determination, valor and a serene smile on their face.

And yet it is best that we become selfless and desire less while meditating on Mother Gayatri with unswerving faith and devotion. Devotees should strive hard to give up this attitude of worshipping Gayatri only if she blesses us by fulfilling our desires. This is because the frail human intellect under the influence of Avidya and Maya (spiritual blindness) is incapable of deciding what is apt or otherwise for himself/herself. Thus it would be wise and prudent on the part of a Gayatri devotee to leave all decisions to Almighty God who is omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent. God is the only one who knows when and what are the requirements of every creature of the cosmos. Suppose despite intense Gayatri worship some mishap in life is not overcome know for sure that God has some very wise reason to make you undergo that pain. Further the Gayatri worship done certainly does not go in vain and at the appointed hour (when the psyche is mature enough) God will pour his blessings on you. Such blessings attained without pre conditions made by a devotee ultimately leads him/her to God Realization and that means eternal and infinite bliss. Give up pre conditions while performing spiritual practices and you will get infinitely more benefits than what you could have bargained for. The supreme benefit is Self/God Realization and if it had to be attained by shouldering all the sorrows of the world know for sure that the price you are paying is not even an iota of the infinite bliss of God vision.
