A note to the left about our Indian values

Few days back I came across a social media post which was mocking the ancient Hindu culture, flummoxed with the latent hate in that post I vested myself in the quest of the reason behind their intense dislike for the unprecedented Indian Culture.

This hatred can only be answered by the values and virtues of the glorious culture of this ancient land, Arsabharata, whose fundamental concept is no one be put to sufferings and everyone has an auspicious outlook, सर्वे भद्राणि पश्यन्तु मा कश्चिद्दुःखभाग्भवेत। (may all see what is auspicious, may no one suffer). Where the prayer addressed to the Supreme Being is for the happiness of mankind.

In our tradition the prayer is hardly ever for one’s own happiness and prosperity. It is always for collective happiness and the removal of everyone’s distress.

The trend which is very common in Indian Liberal Society is that they are blind followers of the west. They don’t have their own spine and want to replicate the western trends in every aspect of Indian society, from impudently attacking the Honourable Prime Minister of the country in the name of constructive criticism or freedom of speech to audaciously demeaning Ayurveda because it is not certified by the west. The colonial slave mindset of the liberals immediately label anyone a “bhakt” if one tries to stand up for their country. The Liberals associate themselves with unbiased, prejudice free and accepting attributes but in reality they are the biggest bigots. On every Hindu festival they post on the social media with a disclaimer portraying it as full of evils, if not this than what is propoganda?

At the juncture, I would like to divert a little and go back once again to the values of India Culture. In today’s world when moral sense is completely ignored by the society, We should see what the eminent historian, Arnold Toynbee, who has covered the entire world in his studies, also obeserves: “At this supremely dangerous moment in human history, the only way of solution for mankind is an Indian Way. The Emperor Ashoka’s and the Mahatma Gandhi’s principle of non-violence and Sri Ramakrishna’s testimony to the harmony of religions, here we have the attitude and the spirit that can make it possible for the human race to grow together into a single family and in the Atomic Age, this is the only alternative to destroying ourselves.’

In conclusion, I would like to remind that in every age, the same one truth has been voiced by the great souls. What Sri Krishna gave as the final message in this verse of the Bhagwat Gita-

yatah pravrttirbhutanam yena sarvamidam tatam
svakarmana tamabhyatcya siddhim vindati manavah

i.e ‘From whom are the promptings of all beings, by whom all this is pervaded, by worshipping that through one’s own action , man attains perfection’, renewed and reaffirmed in our age by the supreme message of Sri Ramakrishna, Sivajnane jivaseva, serving all beings knowing them to be the supreme being.
The Leftists who might have never opened Sacred holy books of Sanatan Dharm, question the credibility of that religion which is peace loving and communitarian in its very existence, which has always talked about people’s welfare.

The sacred Indian values have been preserved and renewed time and again, in this holy land withstanding all the ravages of time. We call it Sanatan Dharm.
