Satyam Vada Dharmam Chara 2013 (07)

Satyam Vada Dharmam Chara

There is a way to turn all our karmas (activities) into Dharnia or The dictum of righteousness. This has been revealed in the timeless Treatise of Bhagavad Geetha told by Lord Himself. Repose faith in Him. Perform your duty of the hour and leave the results to Him. This is the way your work becomes a part of worshiping.
It is recorded in Lord's saying that that work which is not to be performed by someone though that work is a suitable to be performed by some Others is called Akarma by the formers point of view. That work which is forbidden to all is called Vikarrna. Thus the concept of the duly has been illustrated to clear the confusion.

The Colossal Loss of life and property, the trauma of the people caught in the tragedy in tourism places of Uttarakhand has made every one introspect. The places that witnessed these tragic events were the most important pilgrimage centers for the Hindus. Mankind is in the habit of going on Pilgrimage from times immemorial. Earlier we did not have this luxury of automobiles. The pilgrims had to risk their lives with natural calamities, robbers, wild animals, diseases, and other unforeseen circumstances. So, before going on pilgrimage, they were well aware of these risks and made whatever preparations they could. In the depth of their heart, they doubted their own safe return. They did not take small children with them and normally undertook such long pilgrimages whether to Kashi, Badarinath and Kedaranath or in respect of other religions...Read more

Brahmopadesham (Upanayana Samskara)

Based on age , human life is divided into four stages, namely-infancy (shaishavavasthe), childhood (baalyavasthe) youth (yowana) and old age (vrudhaapya). But based on the duties & responsibilities to be performed, human life is divided into Brahmacharya (celebasy), Grahasthashrama(family life), Vaanaprstha (preparatory phase to develop a sense of detachment from materialistic life) and Sanyaasa (getting ready to quit the world any time).

Dve Vidye Veditavye.. Author : Sugunendra Theertha Swamiji

Dve Vidye Veditavye..

Learning in general consists of two types. Learning meant for livelihood and another in the knowledge of the ultimate. We need both of them when we cannot attain one from another. But in the event that knowledge of the ultimate can dispense with the necessity of the earthly learning, we don't need that learning meant exclusively for livelihood. But under no circumstances one should abandon the ultimate Vidya for the sake of the earthly one.
