Meditations
On
Hindutva
“The immortal Bhagawa
Dhwaj (saffron flag) brings
before our eyes a living
image of our ancient,
sacred and integrated
national life in all its
pristine purity and entirely
crossing all superficial
barriers of province, sect,
creed, caste, language and
custom.
Since times immemorial, it
has been the symbol of our
dharma, our culture, our
traditions and ideals
- Sri Guruji Golwalkar
We meditate upon
the splendor of the
illuminating God Savita,
The Deity Supreme
May He inspire our mind and intellect
- The Gayatri mantra
“The traditional explanation of the
Nataraja is that He symbolises the
creation of the universe in one hand and
the death of the universe in the other the drum and the flame - and after all,
that is what cosmology is all about…
For the modern physicists, then, Shiva's
dance is the dance of subatomic matter”
- Carl Sagan, world renowned Astronomer
On June 18, 2004, an
unusual new landmark
was unveiled at CERN,
the European Center for
Research in Particle
Physics in Geneva - a
2m tall statue of the
Indian deity Shiva
Nataraja, the Lord of
Dance
“Yet, the most wonderful and
most sublime of all teaching,
the Brahman doctrine that the
ALL equals the unity of
consciousness, culminates in a
mystical victory over this
dilemma, the words so obscure
to the understanding, so close
to the intuition: Tat Tvam Asi.
That Thou Art.”
Erwin Schrodinger,
Father of Quantum Mechanics
O Devi, O Mother
Protect us and the earth
with those lovely form of yours
moving about in the three worlds,
as also with your exceedingly
terrible forms
- Durga Saptashati, 4.26
यानि सौम्यानि रूपाणि त्त्रैलोक्यॆ विचरन्ति िॆ

Mother, I bow to thee!
Rich with thy hurrying
streams,
Bright with orchard
gleams,
Cool with thy winds of
delight,
Dark fields waving
Mother of might,
Mother free.
Glory of moonlight dreams,
Over thy branches and lordly streams,
Clad in thy blossoming trees,
Mother, giver of ease
Laughing low and sweet!
Mother I kiss thy feet,
Speaker sweet and low!
Mother, to thee I bow.
O Mother,
Here is an offering
for you
Our tan-man-dhan
Our body and soul,
Our hearts and
minds,
Our skills and
wealth,
Our lives.

Caste poilitcs, a wedge
dividing Hindu society



Every civilization had its own lowly
caste practices, including the West,
Africa, China and the middle east
Castiesm in India – essentially a
socio-economic problem
Enemies of Hinduism still use it as
a tool to malign and defame the
Hindu religion
Caste poilitcs, a wedge
dividing Hindu society
Chrisitian Conversions do NOT remove
casteism. They create new castes,
more poverty and powerful terrorism
Pseudo-secularism thrives by the
indirect support to castism
Hindu unity and Hindu consolidation is
the only remedy for castism in any and
every form
Swami Vivekananda says,
“Mark me, Then and then
alone you are a Hindu,
When the very name
sends through you
a galvanic shock of
Strength..
Then and then alone you
are a Hindu,
when every man who bears the name,
from any country,
speaking our language or any other language,
becomes at once
the nearest and the dearest to you
Then and then alone you
are a Hindu,
when the distress of
anyone bearing that
name
comes to your heart and
makes you feel
as if your own son were
in distress,
when you will be ready to
bear everything for
them..”
Krishnadeva raya
We don’t have to do
anything other than
creating an organizational
consciousness
in our society
and making it
strong and
unconquerable….
Shivaji

if they do not bring power
to change the world…"
- Sri Aurobindo
|| कृण्वन्तो ववश्वमार्यमम ||
… Yes, We do have the power
to change the world
