I would like to use this forum to express my displeasure about the way the entire world is functioning now. Everyone is talking crazily about growth and innovation etc.,- be it economic, infra development, education life-style and so on… After reading our SriVaishnava Sidhantha, you would realize how silly or stupid the way we are entangled in this modern world- constantly extending the unvalued goal posts in the unnecessary rat-race.
The pathetic situation here is that all are trying to contest in the so-called rat-race unnecessarily citing the above mentioned reasons. By doing this, we conveniently tend to forget that we can do much better and bigger in a relaxed way if we follow our ancient life-style. In this science-dominated hectic life, we do not accept the truth just because it is not proven scientifically. For instance, the theory of evolution – origin of human being – is still taught based on scientific principles and not the Veda-based truth until the day when science revokes their theory. So, we are being taught incorrect principles. What is the use of going behind these unvalue education system?
Moreover, it is also pathetic to see the amount of money being spent(or wasted) on these unworthy education system? For instance, you can buy a good SriVaishnava Sidhhantha texts for a mere amount compared to the texts of modern education system and the value for money is immeasurable for SriVaishnava texts. Our Sanadhana Dharma principles and practices can be applied for both worlds whereas the modern education is only applied for this world. We must start engaging our children and our society to learn our Sanadhana Dharma principles and practices in a structured / formal way – at least parallel to the present education system.
Everyone agree to this as an individual whereas hesitant to adopt and apply in society. At least, we- as Sanadhana Dharma-followers-try to restore gradually our ancient life-style. For instance, within our society we can pledge our support to this and help each other in each and every aspect to diligently follow our values. Be it promoting our Veda-based education system or giving importance to our cultures etc.,
Collectively, we try to inculcate our children and society with this. By nurturing this value education we will restore all our cultural values- respect, discipline,good habits,good health etc.,
Just a thought…
