All Members,

Respected family members of this great holy Nation.

Part-1.

1. In  the  religions  of  the  Rishi-s,  ethics  and  morality  are  not  a  set of  heartless  rules  of  "do's"  and  "don'ts", (as  in  semitic religions Islam  and Christianity )  with  a  baseless  threat  of  an  eternal  damnation  for  all those  who  dare  disobey  those  prophet-made  rules.

2. "This  is  at  once  the  strength  and  weakness  of  Hinduism."

3.  It  is  a  weakness  inasmuch  as  it  gives  freedom  for  those  who  want  to  an  ugly  life  of  sighs  and  sobs  for  themselves  and,  death  and  destruction  for  others.

4.  Compared  with  other  religions  of  the  world  the  brilliance  and  beauty  of  Hinduism  are    not  merely  in  that  we  are  not  enslaved  by  the  'Commandments'  of  any  single  Prophet,  but  also  in  that  we  are  not  forced  to  obey  implicitly    any  rules  of  conduct  prescribed  of  an  ancient  dead  past;  they  strive  to  make  us  understand  why  a  certain  way - of - life  has  been  prescribed.

5.  No  doubt,  many  of  the  moral  and  ethical  rules  of  right  living  are  common  in  all  the  existing  religions.

6.  "But  only  in  Hinduism  they  are  emphasized  as  so  many  intelligent  policies  of  economising  the  personality  dynamism  available  in  the  individuals."

7.  The  quality  and  quantity  of  thoughts  entertained  by  any  given  personality  determine  the  amount  of  wear  and  tear  suffered  by  the  youthfulness.

8.  We  see  amidst  us  cheerful  and  happy  men  living  a  life,  both  vigorous  and  youthful,  even  at  the  age  of  eighty,  and  also  wretched  specimens  who  show  the  weariness  of  eighty  years  even  at  the  age  of  eighteen.

9.  Dissipation  of  mental  energies  ends  in  the  "tuberculosis  of  the  mind."

10.  To  detect  this  wasteful  diseases  at  the  right  moment  and  to carefully  nurse  back  the  tubercular  mind  to  a  healthy  condition  is  the  contribution  of  "Ethics"   in  the  "Yoga-sastram"of  Bharatham.

11.  Such  a  rehabilitated  mind  returned  to  the  pursuit  of  the  right  values  of  life  brimming  with  an  ever-growing  energy,  becomes  the  right  vehicle  to  gain  real  achievements  in  life.

12. Next : "Mental  rehabilitation  programme   ........

Thank you for reading

JAIHIND.
