Economics Of Mahavira ► 11 ► [11.20] Mahavira and Economics - Anuvrat Rural Programme

Posted: 08.07.2006

An Anuvrat rural programme is being conceived. It is proposed that Anuvrat villages are developed, where nobody remains unemployed, or without food, and nobody goes to the courts. In these villages, each and every person will lead an honest and dedicated life. Should this plan succeed, even in a limited measure, it will be an achievement not only for the religion, but also of the society. Some religious preachers have often said that if you feed the poor, you become virtuous. Making a strong attack on the feeling of earning virtuosity by feeding the poor, Acharya Bhikshu said that to feed a person considering him a beggar is, in fact, a sin. On the other hand, by considering him as a brother, helping him becomes a duty. In reality, poverty is not a very big problem. Let action be taken with reason considering the world as a family and the problem of poverty could be brought under control.
