All Members,


Respected family members of this great holy Nation.

Part-2.

 "Mental rehabilitation programme"

1. This consists in  two  distinct  aspects :

a) . Conserving  energy.

b) . Redirecting  it  into  profitable  channels.

2.  Energy  is  now  wasted  through  wrong  channels  of  egoistic  self-assertion  and  vain  sense  of  self-importance.

3.  To  divert  the  thought  flow  from  these  self-destructive  directions  is  to  stop  all  exhaustions  and  thereby  accomplish  the  conservation  of  all  mental  and  intellectual  energies.

4.  No  columns  of  living  energy  can  be  indefinitely  conserved,  for,  they  grow  in  their  force,  and  can  when  left  to  themselves,  blast  even  the  thickest  barriers  and  continue  again  to  flow  through  the  same  old  wrong  routes / ruts  of  dissipation.

5.  In  order  to  avoid  this  calamitous  tragedy,  the  conserved  energies  should  not  be  held  back  indefinitely  diverted  to  water  profitably  the  fields  of  useful  endeavour.

6.  It  is  to  emphasize  this  purpose  that  in  Hinduism  the  ethical  and  moral  life  have  been  given  but  a  secondary  importance  when  they  are  compared  with  insistence  of  the  Rishi-s  upon  regular  meditation  and  constant  and  faithful  devotion  unto  the  Supreme.

7.  Ours  is  not  a  Sunday-church-devotion  or a   Friday-mosque-religion.

8.  In  our  Sacred  books  the  insistence  is  upon  the  seeker's  mind  lifting  itself  in  attunement  with  the  ideal  of  his  heart  constantly ( "NITYAM" ).

9.  In  all  sermons  of  the  Rishi-s,  prescribing such  moral  values  and  ethical  beauties  of  conduct ,  they  concluded  their  declarations  with  the  same  chorus :

10 . They  repeatedly  advise  us  to  apply  the  mind  so  purified  at  the  feet  of  the  Lord-of-our-heart  in  steady  contemplation.

11.  This  is  true  in  the  Upanishads,  in  the  Srimad  Bhagavad-Gita  and  in  the  Purana-s.

12.  Next : "This Yoga-Spirit  is  the  strength  of  Hinduism"  

Thank you for reading
