Which one of the following options broadly describes you as a Hindu?

  1. I know Sanatana Dharma. But I am afraid to organise and lead the Dharmik cause on the ground. Also, I can’t donate money to the Dharmik cause. Moreover, I don’t want to follow a leader who organises for the Dharmik cause on the ground.
  2. I don’t know Sanatana Dharma. But I am willing to organise and lead the Dharmik cause on the ground. However, I don’t have the money for the Dharmik cause. Also, I don’t want to follow someone else who organises for the Dharmik cause on the ground.
  3. I don’t know Sanatana Dharma. Also, I am afraid to organise and lead the Dharmik cause on the ground. But, I can donate money to the Dharmik cause. However, I don’t want to follow a leader who organises for the Dharmik cause on the ground.
  4. I don’t know Sanatana Dharma. Also, I am afraid to organise and lead the Dharmik cause on the ground. Moreover, I can’t donate money to the Dharmik cause. But, I am willing to follow a leader who organises for the Dharmik cause on the ground.

Now, wouldn’t it be perfect if you were to know Sanatana Dharma, be able to organise and lead the Dharmik cause on the ground, be able to donate regularly for the Dharmik cause, and also be able to follow a strong Dharmik leader on the ground?

The Purusha Suktham of the Rig Veda scientifically identifies the 4 broad classes of human beings across the world based on their personalities, interests and behaviours (not birth):

  • Brahmins—the intellectual class
  • Kshatriyas—the leadership class
  • Vysyas—the trading class
  • Shudras—the working class

Known as the “varna” system, this immutable sociological truth transcends space and time. From antiquity to today, we see these 4 classes all around us all the time. Few people are knowledgeable, some are courageous, many are wealthy, and most are rendering service for a livelihood. However, in today’s vulnerable Bharat where Sanatana Dharma is still decentralised and disorganised, can a Hindu afford to be:

  • knowledgeable of Sanatana Dharma, but is cowardly, poor, and selfish?
  • courageous, but ignorant of Sanatana Dharma, poor, and selfish?
  • wealthy, but ignorant of Sanatana Dharma, cowardly, and selfish?
  • service-oriented, but ignorant of Sanatana Dharma, cowardly, and poor?

The correct translation of the Samskritam term “Hindutva” is “Hinduness” or the state of being Hindu. To guide the Hindu, ancient Hindu rishis have given meaningful and powerful symbols in the form of 4 key deities—Saraswati, Shakti, Lakshmi, and Hanuman. Thus, Hinduness must have 4 dimensions: 

  • Brahmanatva = Knowledgeable, as represented by Ma Saraswati—the power of Brahma.
  • Kshatriyatva = Courageous, as represented by Ma Shakti—the power of Shiva.
  • Vysyatva = Financially prudent, as represented by Ma Lakshmi—the power of Vishnu.
  • Shudratva = Seva-oriented, as represented by Lord Hanuman—the embodiment of selfless action, Karma Yogi.

After the transfer of power (not independence) in 1947, Bharat’s “social justice” decimated Brahmanta, and its “sickularism” decimated Kshatriyata of Hindus, reducing them to being merely money-minded and job-oriented (i.e., government jobs and tech coolies for the West). However, by the turn of last decade, social media began to stir the Hindu’s lost Brahmanta and Kshatriyata.

This is what frightens the Hinduphobic, anti-civilizational BIFs (breaking-India forces). Thus, their intolerant, hate campaign against Hindutva—the reawakening of complete Hinduness. I would not call it just “Hindutva” but “Sampoorna Hindutva”.

Always remember: “Dharmo Rakshati Rakshitaha”—if you protect Dharma, Dharma will protect you.

Jai Hind!
