Ideals make life precious

'Human life' has no value without ideals. It is our moral duty to maintain dignity of values of life. There is no need to search for it.






One of the judges of United States of America, Rolf Kohan was a religious and a conscientious person. Before leaving for the court, he used to pray to the 'Almighty', so that justice couldn't be ignored in any of the judicial cases. One day, he was supposed to go through a special hearing. He left his home for the court. On the way, he saw a person, who had met with an accident and was floundering on the ground. He stopped his car and took the injured to the hospital. He was late by half an hour in reaching the court. On reaching there, he found his chamber jam-packed and the counsels of both the parties were eagerly waiting for him. He bowed before his chair and started addressing the people, gathered there. He said, 'I couldn't reach the court in time, due to the fulfillment of my personal responsibilities. I take apology for the inconvenience caused and impose a penalty of 50 Dollars on me'. At this, the assistant of the judge said, 'Sir, why you consider yourself to be guilty for the delay caused, due to the shifting of the injured person to the hospital'? The judge replied, 'Don't discuss about all this in the open court. It was my duty and I fulfilled it. I was supposed to reach the court, in time, but, failed to do so. 'Each & Every' person, present in the chamber was amazed on his conscientiousness.Generally, we fail to develop colloquial character


in our life due to the feeling of self interest and lack of knowledge. If we learn to remain neutral, there is no reason, why we shall not be able to fulfill our responsibilities. We, ourselves, are responsible for the creation of many problems in our life and pray to the 'Almighty' for their solution. What an ironical situation! Today, we have to face many problems, which have been created by us. Is it not our duty to get rid of these problems? If we take an initiative to move forward embellishing our own family, it shall be a wonderful opportunity for us to fulfill our responsibilities towards the society and the nation, as a whole, as a family is a unit of society. If we continue it, even in the present scenario, we shall become entitled for the blessings of the 'Almighty'. We are required to strengthen these thoughts through our deep devotion thereby creating 'will power', within us. It is a fundamental formula of social joy, peace & prosperity and mental peace can be attained through it. 'Human Life' has no value without ideals. It is our moral duty to maintain dignity of values of life. There is no need to search for it. It depends on our behavior, whether to come in grip of problems with self benefitted reasons or perform good deeds and lead a peaceful and a happy life. If we remain concerned about our own benefits and joy, it is a clear indication that we are going to face sorrow in our later life. We have to fulfil our responsibilities honestly, so as to lead a happy and a prosperous life.

Always remain ‘Compassionate’ to Others

Supreme Saint Bhitrahari used to visit various places and inspire people to become a true human being. Generally, he used to say that we are fortunate enough to be blessed with human life.
The significance of life is entrusted in good deeds, such a s religious devotion and service activities. Initially, we must try to be good human beings. One day, a devotee asked him about the difference between human beings. Bhritrahari replied that human beings belong to four categories. It can be divided according to the nature and deeds, performed by them. Firstly, those, who engage
themselves in the welfare activities of others, the second category belonging to those, who feel greatly satisfied, while working for the welfare of others . Such humans are known as revered people. The third category is of those people, who never hesitate to become a cause for the suffering of others and last, but not the least, those, who cause grievances to others. There are no words to describe such inhumans. He further added, that we must engage ourselves in the welfare activities of others, to be a true human being. There is an important rule of human nature. By following this rule, we shall always be surrounded by an unlimited number of friendsand remain happy, but the moment, we fail to follow it, we are entangled with difficulties. It is awish of every person, to be praised by everyone.

The said wish results in the development of human civilization. For centuries, Saints and Philosophers have been reflecting on the role of the human relations and the formula developed out of it, is new. It is as old as history. Even in the families, the elderly people have been providing the same knowledge, for centuries. Some thousand years back, the sacred scriptures of the Hindus interpreted the said formula. Presenting this formula as a thought in short, 'Lord Jesus' said, 'Try to behave with others in the same manner, as you expect from them'.

Most of the people think themselves to be superior to others. A person, who always speak truth, who never disrespect others and the one who always remember the 'Almighty', automatically becomes a recipient of the blessings of the 'Almighty' and is loved by 'one & all'. No quality is as great a s truth, lov e , compassion and service . The follower of these qualities is always praised by everyone and gets success in all spheres of human life . Ac cording to honorable 'Gurudev' Ram Sharan Acharya, we acquire self progress, intimacy and affection and a decrease in self interest is witnessed and interest is observed only in performing good deeds for others. Love is also extended with self development. Friends! a devotee dedicates his entire love for the 'Almighty' He keeps himself concentrate on the aspect of religious devotion of God.

प्राणी


प्राणीयों कि हिंसा किये बिना
मांस उपलब्ध नहीं हो सकता, और
प्राणी का वध करना सुखदाय नहीं अतः मांस त्याज्य है |
जिस व्यक्ति के दिल में प्राणीयों के प्रति प्रेम नहीं वह
परमात्मा का प्रेम नहीं प सकता |
उत्कृष्ट, मानवीय एवं रोगमुक्त आहार-शाकाहार
प्रसन्नता तो चंदन है दुसरे के माथे पर लगाइये,
आपकी अंगुलियां अपने आप महक उठेगी |
हमने जन प्राणीयों को काटा है मारा है,
खाया है या बलि दी है, उन सबकी बददुआओं से एक
दिन हम पर संकट का पहाड टूट पडेगा | यह एक अटल
सत्य है | अगर कामना लेकर परमात्मा के पास जाओगे तो
परमात्मा संसार है
और कामनाओं से मुक्त होकर संसार के पास जाओगे तो
संसार भी परमात्मा है |
विचार करें - जिन वस्तूओं को हम अपनी मानने है, वे
सदा हमारे साथ रहेगी क्या ?
रंगी को नारंगी कहे, अमूल्य माल को खोया |
चलते को गाडी कहे, देख कबीरा रोया ||
एक बार शरणागत होकर, जो कहता प्रभू ! मैं तेरा |
कर देता मैं अभय उसे, सब भूतों से यह व्रत मेरा ||
पर नारी छानी छुटी, पांच ढोर सुं खाय |
तन छीजे जोबन हरे, पंत पंचों में जाय |
जीवत खावे कालजो, मरयां नरक ले जाय |

कविता

सम हाले वो होता, जो करूणा दिल में लाता |
पीडित और दीन अनाथी, दुखीयों को गले लगाता ||
दुखीयों को गले लगाता, दुख सहकर सुखी बनाता |
दांतो तले तृण दाब कर ये, गायें कह रही,
हम पशु तथा तुम हो मनुज, पार योग्य क्या तुमको यही ?
हमने तुम्हें मां कि तऱ्ह से दुध पीने क दिया |
देकर कसाई को हमें, तुमने हमारा वध किया |
जारी रहा क्रम यदि, यहां यो हि हमारे नाश का,
तो अस्त साम्झों, सूर्य भारत भाग्य के आकाश का |
जो तनिक हरियाली रही, वह भी न रहने पाएगी,
यह स्वर्ण भारत भूमि, बस मरघट यही बन जायेगी |
सर्व भूत में आत्मा, आत्मा में सब भूत
यह गुढार्थ जिन्हें विदित, उनका ज्ञान प्रभूत ||

सिकन्दर (Alexander)




इतिहासज्ञ जिस व्यक्ती को सिकन्दर 'महान' के नाम से पुकारते है, उसके अंतिम संस्कार कि तैयारीया हो रही थी | काफी हुजुम उमड पडा था | जीते जी उसने काफी प्रभुत्व स्थापित किया था - अपनी महत्वाकांक्षा कि पूर्ती के लिये दुनिया मी एक बडे भू-भाग पार विजय कि थी | फिर भी उसके मन में यही रहता था कि काश ! मैं कुछ और जमीन जीत सकूं |

श्रध्दांजलि देने वालों मैं से एक अपने उदगार रोक नही पाया | कह ही दिया कि , है सिकन्दर महान, पृथ्वी के इतने बडे भाग के स्वामी बन कर भी आपकी चाह समाप्त नही हुई , अब सिर्फ दो गज जमीन ले कर आपको कैसा लगेगा !

यह बात सिर्फ सिकन्दर कि नही है | वह तो प्रतिक है | न्यूनाधिक रूप मैं यह बात हम सब पार लागू होती है , जाब हमारे १०० दिन पुरे होंगे तब हम क्या सोचेंगे ? उस समय जीवन कि उप्लाब्धीया, हानि लाभ, क्या खोया-क्या पाया आदी पार मनन चलेगा | क्या मकान बना लिया उसे ही उपलब्धी सामझेंगे ? या बच्चे बडे होकार अच्छे काम पार लाग गये अच्छी जगहो पर उनके शादी-ब्याह हो गए, इसे उपलब्धी मानेगे ? या फिर व्यापार का विस्तार दूर-दूर तक कर लिया इसे उल्लेखनीय बताएंगे ?

मृत्यू सामने खडी है और ये कह रहे है -"हे भगवान" मुझे जीवन का सिर्फ एक वर्ष और दे दे , धर्मशाला बनवा दुं | धन तो खूब है नही तो एक पाठशाला बनवा दुं एक वर्ष नही तो दो-चार महीने ही सही | एक प्याऊ लगवा दुं |

मृत्यू का अट्टहास सुनाई देता है -"जीवन के पेपर के तीन घंटे पुरे हुए | अब एक क्षण भी नही मिलेगा |" और सब कुछ खत्म!
आईये, जीवन मैं कोई ऐसी उपलब्धी हासिल करने का प्रयास करें जिस पर हम गर्व कर साकें |

आपका आपना,

कैलाश 'मानव
'
