Endeavour and fate—these are two opposite poles. Endeavour is inspiration for action. Fate is worship of the unseen. A diligent person is always engaged in action, whether he gets the result or not. A fatalist does not feel any sense of achievement in whatever he does. He regards even his successful efforts as something granted by fate. Some people believe in propitiating a deity. There are a growing...

Time never stops. Time would pass if man does something and it would also pass even if he does nothing. No one has the power or the art to hold up Time. The moment between the past and the future is the most effective. The past can be remembered but it cannot be brought into the present. The future can be imagined, but one cannot live by that imagination. The present is the time for living. It is possible to...

Man has goodness in him. Man has also the evil in him. Usually, a person's thinking extends to the point from where the good in him becomes manifest. When he looks at others, his point of view changes. The mentality of looking at others in one's own context is on the decline. How would it benefit to look at the bad things in others?

Man's faith can be seen in two dimensions. One dimension is the mentality to indulge in comfortable living. People with such a mentality avoid any kind of exertion. They like a high standard of life, by which they imply the availability of a big house, a car, a television, a refrigerator, a room cooler, an air conditioner etc. For obtaining these things, they can take to a wrong path, resort to doing wrong...

Culture is what rectifies life. Preserving culture means preserving life. For this it is not necessary to have divisions on the basis of country, society or community. But the human mentality to create divisions has divided culture too like many other things. That is why the entities of the Eastern and Western cultures emerged. The distinction between the Indian and the non-Indian culture too is the result of...

Individuals are of two types—progressive and conservative. Not that progressive people are necessarily destroyers of traditions. They do not believe in interfering with traditions; and restrictions and taboos that do not obstruct their progress. But meaningless obstruction becomes intolerable for them. That is why they establish some new traditions from time to time. If this is not done, the society in...

Spiritualism is related to the inner world. Morality is the concerned with behaviour in the outer world. Spiritualism has its influence on all the three times—past, present, and future. Morality is concerned with the present. The...

There is a group of enlightened and well-to-do young men. They meet together and dream of social development. They make plans to take the country to the peak of progress. But deep within, they have tensions. They feel they are breaking down. They suffer the tragic atmosphere of indiscipline in their families. They are unable to stop children going through the dark labyrinths of addictions. That is why they are...

Times are very bad. Corruption is on the rise. Cheating is on the increase. There is the problem of terrorism. Secessionist tendencies are growing. The thorny tactics of communalism are spreading wide. Unfortunate incidents of kidnapping, murder, loot and plunder have deprived man of happiness and peace. There is no security anywhere. Banks are looted in broad daylight. No one is free from anxiety. We cannot...
