On natives and complacency -हरेकृष्ण आचार्य

posted Nov 17, 2016, 7:26 PM by A Billion Stories

The problem with having a lot resources, is that it makes you complacent. At the same time, makes the neighbour or an outsider covet your assets to the extent of jealousy, thereby causing a conflict in which complacency must be replaced with caution and alertness, and sometimes to the extent of taking reactively violent measures to continue to keep ownership of the resources.

If you (the native) continue to be complacent amid the growing threats of which you may be blissfully unaware, then the consequences would lead to the loss of these resources to outsider hands.

This same paradigm, when seen at an individual level, leads to a society where crab eats crab.

When seen at a collective level (akin to a state within a nation), leads to the natives losing control over their resources to non-natives who migrate from neighbouring areas, causing a reactive violence by the natives against the so-called outsiders.

When seen at a level of a nation, leads to other nations taking political control of the resources by the use of companies and using the "individual corrupt" to keep control over the resources and de-empowering the natives by introducing unjustifiable laws, citing which, the control is maintained over a long period of time - which then causes a reactive violence, called a "freedom" movement in this context.

The root cause is, however, the complacency built in the natives, which leads the outside perception of weakness and emboldens the outsiders to usurp the resources. If this complacency is done away with, then a natural barrier to outsider invasion is formed and the consequent problems over the decades is avoided.

To remove such complacency, it is important to understand this cause and effect relationship and educate ourselves to the root causes of war and peace.

Peace should not mean complacency and war must only be with the earth shattering negative forces that make all humankind regress, since a unity of ALL the other forces is essential to curb the dark forces. Without this unity, darkness will prevail.

The Devil's Desire -देवसुत

posted Jan 17, 2015, 2:05 AM by A Billion Stories

While physical evolution has been explained by Darwin very well in the "Origin of the Species", it fails to explain the evolution of a weakling such as Man which is more mental than physical. What explains the urge towards perfection in Man? There is no scientific theory yet which even tries to explains this evolution.

But, given the urge towards perfection in Man, it is imperative that methods must be constructed to teach the art of becoming perfect at a very young age using a language that itself is perfect for the codification of knowledge. For if the language can be gathered in a young age, only then can the productivity of Man be maximised throughout his life, which will naturally come from his urge to be perfect, to learn, to progress.

The question now arises as to which "language" to use that when used is perfect not only in the articulation of his thoughts but also that can be "written down" in a way which is best. It is given, the one quality that the script of the language should have is "What you speak is what you write". English hence, it out of of the door.

So the one language that the world of Man should strive to learn, irrespective of where "men" were born, to whom they were born, to whom they swear their alliegance or in what they believe in. That one language that was designed by Man to be used by Man as a Species, to be used to become perfect, to learn, to progress, to pass on the knowledge to the next generation in the most possibly perfect way - is undeniably, irrefutably, unquestioningly and most obviously - SANSKRIT.

Sanskrit was designed for the use of Man, by Man to articulate his thoughts in the best possible way, to write down those thoughts without causing error when read due to misinterpretation. When spoken, to use the largest part of his unused brain, by correspondingly using all parts of his vocal system, so as to maximise his thought into action that realizes his true potential.

It was also designed to codify knowledge, to be able to compress great ideas into single short sentences which are also easy to memorize and when memorized to remain permanently embedded in the neural connections even if not recalled through decades. The code if memorized would be possible to be passed on through generations even if the true meaning of the code was not understood by the less trained, giving a chance to a great intellect down the generations to be able to reconstruct the true meaning of the information such passed on.

It is high time that humankind starts using this language universally throughout the world in all its corners to give itself a chance to progress individually and collectively towards its own liberation of thought and action. SANSKRIT is undeniably, the language to be used in the next step of evolution of Man.

Any further neglect of the language due to various ignorances and egos, individual or collective, is only inviting disaster which is already being felt across generations - for the degradation of society comes from unthoughtful action coming from a brute mind, which is an impossibility if SANSKRIT had been the language of training.

SANSKRIT has hence been, rightly so, called "The language of the Gods". Interestingly hence, opposition to teach the language universally, will only be the Devil's Desire.

Save Snakes -Sahana Haekrishna

posted Aug 1, 2014, 2:07 AM by A Billion Stories

Shravana Panchami , the fifth day of Shravana month of the Hindu calender, is celebrated as Naga Garuda Panchami or Nag Panchami . It is an auspicious day for the Hindus as they worship the King of snakes -the Cobra - on this day.

I have seen a lot of snakes coming around my home at my native since my childhood. Once a rat snake had come inside our house when our lady rabbit had given babies. The snake had come to eat the babies. At the right time our home maid kept the babies out of house, and the snake went out by itself, leaving everyone unharmed.

We had also made a small open aquarium in our garden. Many bull frogs had made their house inside it and many snakes also used to join them to hunt for food.

The lesson we learnt from our parents was to never harm any animal and we always felt happy when we did not harm any other creature in this world.

In the past 3-4 years, our city home also witnessed some snake visits. Once a 7-8 feet rat snake came, roamed around our portico and left by itself. Next time, a highly poisonous Viper came and slept on the wheel of my son's cycle. At night my 3 year son was about to lift the cycle when we saw it and got alert. We gave it some time and it went out slowly. Then there came a 5 feet Rat snake on a winter day. It wanted to share our house, but our 7 year old Labrador, Soumya, never allowed it to fulfill its wish. This time I had to call a snake catcher and he took the snake to a lake.

Save Snakes. Never kill them. Allow them to go out on their own when they enter your area. Call the Snake catchers or the Forest Officers - keep their numbers handy. They will help you out and the Snakes too.
Live and Let Live!
