India produced the best female fighters in history.When the mind is strong,the body becomes as strong as a rock but not muscular and can face any situation with grace.Chandragupta maurya of the mauryan dynasty had the best women warriors,mentally balanced and physically fit.No one heard about rape in ancient India because it was never a repressed society .Why is the country become mentally ill?I request every women in terrible situation to give tough fight.Do your duty without attachment.Be prepared to face any situation the world has to give you.
Destitute women should be protected by the society because they are the result of social exploitation and the uncouth behavior of men~Chanakya
Whatever you fear,you will always have to face it.Swami Vivekananda said “Always say I have no fear and the fear will vanish permanently”.This is the best mantra.
What right has a man to say he has a soul if he does not feel it, or that there is a God if he does not see Him? If there is a God we must see Him, if there is a soul we must perceive it; otherwise it is better not to believe. It is better to be an outspoken atheist than a hypocrite–Vivekananda
It should be noted that love is the purest form of divine energy unlike what is shown in Hindi movies.Love has no jealousy, possessiveness,anger,unhappiness,depression,conditions,revenge,desire to hurt,desire to make someone jealous,competition,bitterness etc.So women who are frustrated imagining love and makes false complaint is doing heinous crime and the karma will come back to haunt them.Do not put yourself in such situations where you become revengeful.If you are in such state of negative mindset,you need a psychiatrist.
First of all, love need not forgive because in the first place it is not angered. To forgive somebody first you have to be angry; that is a prerequisite. It is said that Buddha never forgave anybody for the simple reason that he was never angry. How can you forgive without anger? It is impossible.
The universe is itself God so be happy and cheerful.People listen to sad song and like meaningless movie full of depression are not mentally normal.They are at very low energy.Love solves all problems and never creates any problem.
Celebrity worship syndrome is an obsessive-addictive disorder in which a person becomes overly involved with the details of a celebrity’s personal life. Psychologists have indicated that though many people obsess over glamorous film, television,sport and pop stars, the only common factor between them is that they are all figures in the public eye.If you are above 16 years and is suffering from this disease,you need help.Evidence indicates that poor mental health is correlated with celebrity worship. Researchers have examined the relationship between celebrity worship and mental health in United Kingdom adult samples. One study found evidence to suggest that the intense-personal celebrity worship dimension was related to higher levels of depression and anxiety. Similarly, another study in 2004, found that the intense-personal celebrity worship dimension was not only related to higher levels of depression and anxiety, but also higher levels of stress, negative affect, and reports of illness
One wants to be admired because one has no respect for oneself and one also worships a celebrity because one has no respect for oneself.
Women should be taught ancient Martial art to protect themselves against oppressors because government fails to protect women against rape cases and lack of good security to citizens that promotes terrorism.Indian Law is a game of money.
NO MAN CAN PROTECT YOU,DEAR WOMEN OF INDIA.LEARN Martial art AND FIGHT YOU OWN BATTLE.Martial art ART NEED MIND TECHNIQUES AND THE BODY BECOMES STRONG.WEAR ANY DRESS YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE WEARING BUT BE VERY STRONG. SEXUALLY REPRESSED MEN THINK DRESS IS CAUSE OF RAPES.IN FACT SUCH MENTALLY SICK POLITICIANS MUST BE SECRETLY RAPING WITHOUT BEING CAUGHT.A HEALTHY MIND SEES GODDESS IN EVERY WOMAN AND NEVER MAKES ANY JUDGEMENT.MANY WOMEN ARE FACED WITH ACUTE FINANCIAL CRISIS SO THEY DANCE AND SING IN BAR.JUDGE NO WOMAN AND TREAT EVERY WOMAN WITH RESPECT.
Rape, pedophilia,riots,murder patients must be treated in psychiatric hospitals because it is a mental case caused by sexual repression.Such cases must be declared as a mental health issue by the Government.Those getting such urge must be treated before the problems becomes acute.We do not have such hospitals.Since most of the politicians are also mentally ill so they do not understand this sickness.
Do not ever allow yourself to be “talked” into doing anything that you do not want to do!!
War and peace are twin limbs of life, and we cannot do without either of them. We will simply be lame and crippled if we try to manage with only one of our two legs.
Krishna is not a hawk, not a supporter of war for war’s sake. He, however, treats war as part of life’s game. But he is not a warmonger. He has no desire whatsoever to destroy anyone; he does not want to hurt anyone. He has made every effort to avoid war, but he is certainly not prepared to escape war at any cost – at the cost of life and truth and religion itself. After all, there should be a limit to our efforts to avoid war, or anything else for that matter. We want to avoid war just for so it does not hurt and harm life. But what if life itself is hurt and harmed by preventing war? Then its prevention has no meaning. Even the pacifist wants to prevent war so that peace is preserved. But what sense is there in preventing a war if peace suffers because of it? In that case, we certainly need to have the strength and ability to wage a clear war, a decisive war.
Krishna is not a hawk, but he is not a frightened escapist either. He says it is good to avoid war, but if it becomes unavoidable it is better to accept it bravely and joyfully than to run away from it. Running away would be really cowardly and sinful. If a moment comes when, for the good of mankind, war becomes necessary – and such moments do come – then it should be accepted gracefully and happily. Then it is really bad to be dragged into it and to fight it with a reluctant and heavy heart.
Those who go to war with dragging feet, just to defend themselves, court defeat and disaster. A defensive mind, a mind that is always on the defensive, cannot gather that strength and enthusiasm necessary to win a war. Such a mind will always be on the defensive, and will go on shrinking in every way. Therefore Krishna tells you to turn even fighting into a joyful, blissful affair.
Krishna accepts life in all its facets, in all its climates and colors. He alone does not choose he accepts life unconditionally. He does not shun love; being a man he does not run away from women. As one who has known and experienced God, he alone does not turn his face from war. He is full of love and compassion, and yet he has the courage to accept and fight a war. His heart is utterly non violent, yet he plunges into the fire and fury of violence when it becomes unavoidable. He accepts the nectar, and yet he is not afraid of poison.
In fact, one who knows the deathless should be free of the fear of death. And of what worth is that nectar which is afraid of death? One who knows the secret of non-violence should cease to fear violence. What kind of non-violence is it that is scared of violence? And how can the spirit, the soul, fear the body and run away from it? And what is the meaning of God if he cannot take the whole of this world in his embrace?
Krishna accepts the duality, the dialectics of life altogether and therefore transcends duality. What we call transcendence is not possible so long as you are in conflict, so long as you choose one part and reject the other. Transcendence is only possible when you choicelessly accept both parts together, when you accept the whole.
That is why Krishna has great significance for the future. And his significance will continue to grow with the passage of time. When the glow and the glamor of all other godmen and messiahs has dimmed, when the suppressive religions of the world have been consigned to the wastebasket of history, Krishna’s flame will be heading towards its peak, moving towards the pinnacle of its brilliance.
It is not a question of hurting others. In life there is always a choice of proportions, a choice between the proportion of good and of evil. And it is not necessary that war bring only evil. Sometimes the avoidance of war can result in evil. Our country was enslaved for a full thousand years just because of our incapacity to fight a war. Similarly, our thousand-year old poverty and degradation is nothing but the result of a lack of courage and fearlessness in our lives, a lack of expansiveness in our hearts and minds
For instance, we now know that the body and soul are not separate, that they are two poles of the same phenomenon. The visible part of the soul is known as the body, and the invisible part of the body is called the soul. God and the world are not two separate entities; there is absolutely no conflict be tween God and nature. Nature is the visible, the gross aspect of God, and God is the invisible, the subtle aspect of nature. There is no such point in the cosmos where nature ends and God begins. It is nature itself that, through a subtle process of its dissolution, turns into God, and it is God himself who, through a subtle process of his manifestation, turns into nature. Nature is manifest God, and God is unmanifest nature. And that is what adwait means, what the principle of one without the other means.
We can understand Krishna only if we clearly understand this concept of adwait(Advaita Vedanta), that only one is – one without the other. You can call him God or Brahman or Soul or Atma or what you like.
We also have to understand why Krishna is going to be increasingly significant for the future and how he is going to become closer and closer to man. It will be so, because the days when suppression and repression ruled the roost are gone. After a lengthy struggle and a long spell of inquiry and investigation we have learned that the forces we have been fighting are our own forces. In reality we are those forces, and it is utter madness to fight them. We have also learned we become prisoners of the forces we oppose and fight, and then it becomes impossible to free ourselves from them. And now we also know that we can never transform them if we treat them as inimical forces, if we resist and repress them.
KRISHNA THE FUTURE
Swami Vivekananda on Women
“The soul has neither sex, nor caste nor imperfection.”
“The best thermometer to the progress of a nation is its treatment of its women.”
” There is no chance for the welfare of the world unless the condition of women is improved.”
“Woman has suffered for aeons, and that has given her infinite patience and infinite preserverance.”
Women must be put in a position to solve their own problems in their own way. No one can or ought to do this for them. And our Indian women are as capable of doing it as any in the world.”
“The idea of perfect womanhood is perfect independence.”
“Soul has no sex, it is neither male nor female. It is only in the body that sex exists, and the man who desires to reach the spirit cannot at the same time hold sex distinctions. (CW ,V.4, P.176)
It is very difficult to understand why in this country India so much difference is made between men and women, whereas the Vedanta declares that one and the same conscious Self is present in all beings. You always criticize the women, but say what have you done for their uplift? Writing down Smritis etc., and binding them by hard rules, the men have turned the women into manufacturing machines! If you do not raise the women, who are living embodiment of the Divine Mother, don’t think that you have any other way to rise.
If you do not allow one to become a lion, he will become a fox. Women are a power, only now it is more evil because man oppresses woman; she is the fox, but when she is no longer oppressed, she will be the lion (CW vol.7,p.22)
Vivekananda strongly believes that There is a huge difference in the attitude of Indian men and their western counterparts .Indian men in present times believes that the women are born to please them. The real Shakti-worshipper is he who knows that God is the omnipresent force in the universe, and sees in women the manifestation of that force.
It was a female sage who first found the unity of God, and laid down this doctrine in one of the first hymns of the Vedas. Our God is both personal and absolute, the absolute is male, the personal, female. And thus it comes that we now say: ‘The first manifestation of God is the hand that rocks the cradle’.” (CW V.4 p.170)
In order to attain to that realization in the conscious plane, some instrumentality is required. The mind is that instrument in us. But it is a non – intelligent substance. It only appears to be intelligent through the light of the Atman(Soul) behind. Only a moron can say that women have less intelligence than men,Therefore the author of the Panchadashi (III.40) says: “[(Sanskrit)]– the Shakti appears to be intelligent by the reflection of the intelligence of the Atman(Soul).” Hence the mind also appears to us like an intelligent substance. Therefore it is certain that you won’t be able to know the Soul, the Essence of Intelligence, through the mind. You have to go beyond the mind — for only the Atman(Soul) exists there — there the object of knowledge becomes the same as the instrument of knowledge. The knower, knowledge, and the instrument of knowledge become one and the same. It is therefore that the Shruti says, “[(Sanskrit)]– through what are you to know the Eternal Subject?” The real fact is that there is a state beyond the conscious plane, where there is no duality of the knower, knowledge, and the instrument of knowledge etc. When the mind is merged, that state is perceived.
Swami Vivekananda spotted a poverty-stricken Muslim girl in Kashmir and saw the Divine Mother in her.The boatman was overwhelmed. He thought that God was asking him through Swamiji and readily agreed.Then Vivekananda not only worshiped the girl but also bowed down to touch her feet, as part of the ritual.In the late 19th century, Ramakrishna used to perform the ritual at Bhabatarini temple of Dakineshswar in Hooghly district on mahastamee. Vivekananda carried forward his guru’s Mission and performed Kumari Puja, a tradition to be followed by the Mission.
