Sanatan-Dharma : The Solution to all the Problems in the World

Sanatan-Dharma – The Solution to all the Problems in the World

Explains how following the Eternal Religion can solve all the problems in the world. Not following the Eternal Religion creates all the problems in the world.

The problems in the World today are: Drugs, alcoholism, terrorism, envy/hatred, violence, cancer, poverty, divorce, AIDS, crop failures, global warming, droughts, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, and financial ruin.

A true Sanatan-Dharma follower accepts and follows the following principles:

Krishna (God) consciousness, to love all His creations

  1. Following regulated principles: No Intoxication, No Meat eating, No elicit sex, No gambling. To ensure no living being is hurt
  2. Believing in justice for all living beings (Law of Karma)
  3. Belief in reincarnation, thus living a responsible life
  4. Universal brotherhood (all living beings are part of God and thus we are all brothers and sisters)

It should be noted that currently India is in a chaotic condition, because most people there do not follow the principles of Sanatan-Dharma, they just pretend to. A few hundred years ago, India was the most prosperous country in the World, because the people followed the Sanatan-Dharma principles.

  1. Krishna (God) Consciousness

Do you follow a God with no name, unknown address, unknown description, and unknown history, not seen, or not proven?

“The whole cosmic order is under Me. By My will it is manifested again and again, and by My will it is annihilated at the end.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.8)

“I am the source of all spiritual and material worlds. Everything emanates from Me. The wise who know this perfectly engage in My devotional service and worship Me with all their hearts.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.8)

In the Vedic religion God is a real person with a name, address, description, and history dating back to the beginning of creation (billions of years), seen by millions of humans (the forefathers of all of us), and proven.

Lord Krishna is the Supreme Being (God) who last appeared in his original form, only 5000 years ago. He declared himself and proved that he was the Supreme Being, God, to millions of humans.

The life of a Krishna conscious person (a devotee) is centered on God (Krishna), which results in liberation from the cycle of birth, death, and re-birth after this life. The life of non-devotees is centered on materialism, lust, attachments, greed, or illusion. Which only result in bondage to material life for countless lifetimes. Material life is conditioned with misery, old age, disease, and death. There are 8.4 million bodies in which the soul keeps circulating. Out of these, only 400,000 are human species in various conditions of life. Not all the species are present on this planet. Thus human birth is rare, and one should utilize the higher consciousness to the fullest potential to break free from the wheel of birth, death, and re-birth, by becoming Krishna conscious.

One who is not envious but who is a kind friend to all living entities, who does not think himself a proprietor, who is free from false ego and equal both in happiness and distress, who is always satisfied and engaged in devotional service with determination and whose mind and intelligence are in agreement with Me–he is very dear to Me.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 12.13-14)

When one’s life is not centered on God, then it becomes centered on lust and materialism, which leads to anger and hatred as desires are unlimited and thus can never be satisfied. Couples should first love God, which will automatically lead to love for one another. If they just center their life on each other than their desires will never be satisfied and their relationship will end in misery, divorce.

“It should be understood that all species of life, O son of Kunti, are made possible by birth in this material nature, and that I am the seed-giving father.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 14.4)

Krishna consciousness people are totally non-violent (vegetarian), not materialist (simple), don’t behave like dogs on the street (no elicit sex), drug free (no intoxications), and don’t gamble with their life. The result of which is no mentality of violence, no AIDS, no druggies, and no financial ruin.

“As a person puts on new garments, giving up old ones, similarly, the soul accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 2.22)

If you are serious about stopping terrorism, drugs, and AIDS. Then become Krishna conscious now.

  1. No intoxications

Drugs are the biggest worry for parents of children. In the US alone, millions of people are addicted to drugs.

Millions of people are addicted to alcohol. Alcohol causes health problems and human suffering due to un-controlled consciousness.

Cigarettes cause diseases like cancer and lung disorders.

Tea and Coffee are intoxicants, which are addictive and can affect the consciousness in a negative way.

  1. No Meat Eating

A man works all his life and gets a pension to live out his remaining days. The cow gives milk all her life, and then people kill and eat her. It’s wrong. Man does not need to kill to live but he kills by the millions each day.

Animal killing, destruction of forests, and pollution is killing nature, which takes revenge in the form of droughts, floods, hurricanes, and earthquakes. In this age (Kali Yuga) things will only get worse by the day.

Scientific research has shown that eating meat can seriously damage your health. Meat eaters are much more likely to suffer from cancer, heart disease, and other diseases than vegetarians.

Killing animals is inhumane and uncivilized. They too are God’s creatures.

Meat eaters have a mentality of violence, a person who kills animals is much more likely to kill people too. Than a person who is a vegetarian. The most violent humans on Earth are animal killers. In this time of terrorism, it is important to know that all terrorists are meat eaters. It would be extremely rare to find a vegetarian terrorist. If everyone in the world were a vegetarian, there would be no terrorism.

It makes no economic sense to produce meat for human consumption. It takes at least 16 lbs of grain and many gallons of water to produce just 1 lb of meat. The 16 lbs of grain can feed at least 16 people while the 1 lb of meat can only feed 1 person. If everyone in the world were a vegetarian, there would be enough grain to feed twice the number of people in the world; there would be no poverty.

The forests of the world are being decimated by conversion to grazing lands, ruining the lungs of mother earth- that convert the carbon- di-oxide in the air back to oxygen. Global warming would be reduced considerably if there were no meat consumption. The contribution to global warming by automobiles is insignificant compared to the damage caused by breeding animals for meat consumption.

“The living entities in this conditioned world are My eternal, fragmental parts. Due to conditioned life, they are struggling very hard with the six senses, which include the mind.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 15.7)

  1. No Illicit Relationships

Millions of people around the world are dying from sexually transmitted disease like AIDS. Which is caused by humans behaving like dogs on the street.

In this age, relationships and marriages are often based on sex impulses only. This can be proven by the fact that most marriages end in a divorce. It is the children that suffer the most, all due to the lusty parents. Marriage often end due to one or both the partners wanting to move onto another mate. Just like the dogs on the street.

If there was no sex before marriage, and if humans did not behave like dogs on the street then the number of divorces and thus single parent families would dramatically reduce. Sexual lust only leads to misery.

Marriage beak-ups are costly in terms of human suffering and financially to both the partners.

  1. No Gambling

Millions of people gamble in various ways. Often most are losers. Gambling destroys the financial well being of many families and causes suffering. Mostly to women and children.

The gamblers don’t realize that it’s the bookies who win and not them.

  1. Accepting the law of karma and reincarnation

If a person kills and soon after dies himself. How can be punished unless he takes birth again? If a sinner is sent to hell forever then how can God be merciful unless he is given another chance? Reincarnation and karma explain why some people are born into misery and others into good fortune. Why some are born healthy and some diseased and so on.

“When one dies in the mode of passion, he takes birth among those engaged in fruitive activities; and when he dies in the mode of ignorance, he takes birth in the animal kingdom.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 14.15)

By knowing that we are responsible for all our actions, one does not take actions, which causes suffering to others. This makes one very compassionate to all living beings. The law of karma makes one realize that by engaging in violence against other living beings will result in punishment, in equal proportion to the action.

Giving charity now will result in receiving charity in the future. If you give today to the needy, then in the future when you are in need, you will receive.

At death, all our actions taken during in life are taken into account to determine our next body (human or animal) and its conditions of life (rich, poor, healthy, diseased).

If all humans accepted that this life isn’t the only one and that for every action there will be a reaction, there would be no terrorism, violence, and criminals in the world. Also, if all humans were charitable and shared their wealth (take pious actions), there would be no poverty in the world.

People say “I want peace’. If you remove the ‘I’ (ego) and the ‘want’ (desires), you will be left with peace. Men and women must give up false ego, attachment to material objects, desires, and lust. This will result in everlasting peace and happiness.

Reincarnation and Karma are scientific facts.

“The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: Fearlessness; purification of one’s existence; cultivation of spiritual knowledge; charity; self-control; performance of sacrifice; study of the Vedas; austerity; simplicity; nonviolence; truthfulness; freedom from anger; renunciation; tranquillity; aversion to faultfinding; compassion for all living entities; freedom from covetousness; gentleness; modesty; steady determination; vigor; forgiveness; fortitude; cleanliness; and freedom from envy and from the passion for honor – these transcendental qualities, O son of Bharata, belong to godly men endowed with divine nature.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 16.1-3)

Modern Day Mentality

Shows how foolish the modern day mentality among people is.

Modern Day Mentality – Ignorance and Foolishness

  • We have bigger houses, but no room for our parents – Most parents live separately.
  • We have high tech gadgets, but we have low grade mentality – No consideration for others.
  • We talk more but do less – We just say things but don’t act on it.
  • We have high tech communication systems, but still can’t get through to others – People have become too complex to get through.
  • We have become more materialistic, and less spiritualistic – We are very much interested in the temporary lump of matter (the body) and no interest in knowing about the eternal soul.
  • We build though houses, but live in broken homes – Single parent families due to break up of marriage.
  • We are quick to start a relationship, but also quick to end it – Divorce is very common.
  • We have more conveniences, but still less time – People don’t have time to eat, they eat while driving, most people live on frozen and unfresh foods.
  • We have more degrees, but less common sense – Material education does not develop our common sense. We are wasting time by accumulating material degrees and objects which are completely useless at the time of death.
  • We have more knowledge, but less judgment – We do not know what is wrong and what is right. Drinking alcohol, drugs, eating flesh, relationships outside marriage, and gambling are all wrong, but we think these are good, because we have lost our good judgement skills.
  • We are more expert at solving problems, but we create more problems – Our  lives today are far more complex and than ever before.
  • We have more medicine, but less health – Millions dying from cancer, AIDS, heart disease.
  • We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life – What is the purpose of living? To know and serve God.
  • We’ve added years to life, but not life to years – What is the value in living longer if we waste our life?.
  • We conquered outer space, but not inner space – Who we are, why are we here, who is God?.
  • We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait – A friendship of 20 years or more can be ended with one argument/disagreement.
  • We live on fast foods, but have slow digestion – Food from restaurants could be unhealthy and contaminated with the karma of the atheist or sinful cooks.
  • We have big men, but small character – People are bigger, but with no moral values.
  • We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers – We argue over small things.
  • We have wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints – We base everything on our own tiny brain. We are not open minded.
  • We spend more, but have less – We have many things but still we feel empty, no satisfaction.

The Vedic Class System

An explanation of the Vedic class system based on the Vedic scriptures.
Read More/Less
Based on the Vedic scriptures of India, there is a Vedic class or social order System but there is no such thing as a Vedic caste system, commonly known as the Hindu caste system. The word ‘caste’ means fixed but ‘class’ means it can change based on how a person behaves and develops his/her qualities. The class of a person can change from higher to lower or from lower to higher.

The current Hindu caste system in India is a complete corruption of the Vedic class system, because it’s based on birth (caste from birth) and not based on the behavior nor the qualities developed. The Vedic scriptures do not authorize a caste system which is fixed from birth, they authorize a class system.

“It is therefore to be concluded that humanity is essentially one, but distinctions of caste have been made according to a person’s qualities and work. As far as general behavior is concerned, the entire human race is one. There is only a difference in people’s occupations and attitudes. Those who divide society into castes according to birth cannot see that human beings are essentially one. After all, the birth, maintenance, death, and bodily activities are only of one kind.” (Bhavishya Purana, 42.33-34)

It is very clear from above that the current caste system in India, which is based on dividing society into castes from birth is completely rejected by this Vedic scripture and others.

“The caste system based simply on birth does not actually divide people according to their development of consciousness. It is one’s envy and hatred or lack of it that allows us to place him/her in a higher or lower category.” (Bhavishya Purana, 40.19-20)

As stated above, it is due to envy, hate, and personal ego that people in India have corrupted the Vedic class system and created a caste system. The Vedic class system as prescribed in the Vedic scriptures is based on personal qualities and the caste system is based on birth in a particular family and has nothing to do with personal qualities.

Definition of The Vedic Class System

e5fd94578d2774f3eb6ffdca173eac8cWe all work. At work we have a boss. Your boss is higher than you and you are lower than your boss. Does this mean that your company is bad for making you lower than your boss? No. You are lower than your boss, because your boss deserves to be higher than you. He is better qualified and experienced and thus he deserves to be higher than you. You are less qualified and experienced and thus you deserve to be lower than your boss. The Vedic class system is exactly like the above example, which is defined in the Bhagavad-Gita as follows:

“Brahmanas, ksatriyas, vaisyas and sudras are distinguished by their qualities of work, O chastiser of the enemy, in accordance with the modes of nature.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 18.41)

“According to the three modes of material nature and the work associated with them, the four divisions of human society are created by Me. And although I am the creator of this system, you should know that I am yet the nondoer, being unchangeable.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 4.13)

“According to their nature and qualities, there are prescribed duties for brahmanas, ksatriyas, vaisyas, and sudras.” (Bhavishya Purana, 42.24)

Once again the Vedic scriptures make it very clear that the current caste system in India which is based on birth is against the Vedic authority. The authorized Vedic class system is based on the qualities developed and the actions taken by a person (behavior). A person will belong to one of four classes:

“Peacefulness, self-control, austerity, purity, tolerance, honesty, wisdom, knowledge, and religiousness–these are the qualities by which the brahmanas work.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 18.42)

Those who possess the above qualities should be the Brahmanas, teachers and advisers to society.

“Heroism, power, determination, resourcefulness, courage in battle, generosity, and leadership are the qualities of work for the ksatriyas.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 18.43)

Those who possess the above qualities should be the Ksatriyas, military personnel and administrators in society.

“Farming, cow protection and business are the qualities of work for the vaisyas, and for the sudras there is labor and service to others.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 18.44)

Vaisyas – Those who posses good trading and farming skills, should be the traders (business owners), farmers, and cow protectors.

Sudras – Those who don’t posses the qualities of the above three classes should be the general workers and assistants.

Every corporation in the World uses the Vedic class system. For example, in a corporation people are employed based on the qualities of work they have developed. Some are vice presidents, some are managers, some are admin clerks, and some are janitors.
It is a fact that everyone is not the same; this can be proven by the fact that not everyone has all the good qualities or all bad qualities.

By following the Vedic class system, everyone will strive to become the best among men. Those at the top (Brahmans) will strive to keep their high position, and those below will strive to advance to a higher position. At work, do you want to advance or would you prefer to stay in the same position?

Everyone would agree that at work, there should be opportunities for advancement for everyone based on the effort put in by each worker. If there are no opportunities for advancement based on the efforts of the workers, then everyone loses the motivation to work and the quality of workers diminishes. This would result in the collapse of the corporation.

In a classless society, there is no motivation to develop good qualities and everyone becomes degraded into the lowest class. This is the case everywhere in the World today. The leaders in most countries around the World are thieves, liars, and have no spiritual knowledge. The result of this is that the public suffers with injustice, high taxes, inflation, unemployment, and insecurity.

Wouldn’t it be nice if all the Politicians were peaceful, self-controlled, pure, tolerant, honest, knowledgeable, and religious? This is the aim of the Vedic class system. To ensure that suitably qualified personnel are appointed suitable roles in society. This concept is already used in corporations around the World. Just think if all the Politicians were assigned according to the Vedic class system. How wonderful the whole World would be. As only those who are truthful and caring would be qualified to become Politicians. Currently the whole World is in a chaotic condition as nearly all the Politicians are liars, ruthless, and thieves.

The current so-called caste system in India is a complete corruption of the Vedic class system which is prescribed by Lord Krishna in the Bhagavad-Gita and so it should be rejected. Currently the son of a Brahman is also called a Brahman, even though the son only has the qualities of a Sudra. Can the son of a high court judge also be called a judge? Can the son of a doctor be also called a doctor? The simple answer is no. One can only be called a judge or doctor, if one has developed the qualities of a judge or doctor.

Those outside India, often attack Sanatan-Dharma (the Eternal Religion) due to the Hindu class system, without even understanding the facts about the definition of the class system according to the Vedic scriptures. They them selves have a history of human slavery, hatred, and violence against those who don’t follow their recently created religion. The Vedic class system is civilized. Slavery, hatred, and violence are uncivilized.

How is the Vedic Class System Scientific?

The Bhagavad-Gita (4.13 and 18.41) and the Bhavishya Purana (42.24) very clearly define the Vedic class system/social order system which is known as Varna Ashrama, based on qualities and activities (guna-karma) and not birth in a particular family.

The Rig Veda (10.90.12) compares society to the human body. The four classes of people in society are like the four parts of the body. The head is represented by the Brahmins, the hands represent the Ksatriyas, the belly represents the Vaisyas, and the legs represent the Sudras. The body as a whole is completely useless without all four parts functioning properly. In a similar way, every society/nation needs all four classes of men to function properly.
Every person needs a good head, good belly, good hands, and good legs to function properly. In a similar way, every society or nation needs all four classes of men to function properly. When there is an in balance, the society/nation suffers. This is a fact as most nations today are suffering with corruption, violence, poverty, or wars. This is because unqualified personnel are doing the functions which require suitably qualified personnel, the result is chaos. Just like in a corporation, if unqualified personnel are placed in roles which require suitable qualified personnel, the whole corporation suffers with losses and eventually closes down.

It is a fact that not everyone will develop the same qualities, nor does everyone behave in the same way. Lord Krishna (God) realizes this fact and he created the Vedic class system so that everyone is placed in roles in society which are suitable for them, but Lord Krishna does not dictate who belongs to what class. This is our choice, we have free will. Which means we can develop ourselves to become Brahmins or Sudras or even lower the Mlecchas and Yavanas (out castes). It’s our choice, God is not a dictator.

There are different Universities where people can go and become Doctors, lawyers, and clerical administrators. But the Universities do no dictate who is assigned to what course. It’s based on the qualifications and abilities of applicants. Just like in a family, one child may become a Doctor based on the qualifications acquired. And another child may become a waiter. Both children had the same opportunities and but due to the use of their free will, one did better than the other. However at anytime one can do down or go up, if they desired and worked to develop better qualities or become degraded in their work and thus degradation of qualities. Some Doctors do become waiters or lower and some waiters do become CEOs or better.

Are Some People Good from Birth or Bad from Birth?

The Vedic class system assigns people to appropriate roles in society based on the qualities/skills developed and their behavior. However, some people do have the good qualities already developed in them from birth and some have bad qualities from birth and do not change. Some people are just bad from birth and no matter what is taught to them, they do not change. And some people are naturally good from birth and no matter what situation they are put in, they remain good or pure hearted. Lord Krishna confirms this in the Bhagavad-Gita in the case of Arjuna.

“The transcendental qualities are conducive to liberation, whereas the demoniac qualities make for bondage. Do not worry, O son of Pandu, for you are born with the divine qualities.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 16.5)

In this verse Lord Krishna tells Arjuna that he has the good qualities from birth and so these are helpful in attaining liberation from material life which is a cycle of repeated birth, old age, disease, and misery.

Can Anyone Develop Good Qualities and Change Their Nature To Divine?

Based on the Bhagavad-Gita, every single person, regardless of the nature they are born with, good or bad. Regardless of the religion they are born in, regardless of their past, regardless of their current qualities. Everyone can develop good qualities and change their nature to divine by practicing the teachings of the Bhagavad-Gita.

Conclusion

The Vedic class system is justice, fair, logical, civilized, and practiced by every organization in the world.

 

Vedic Culture and Non-Vedic Cultures

 

The main differences between the Vedic culture and non-Vedic cultures.

Sarva Bhavantu Sukhina (May all be happy)
Sarva Santu Niramaya (May all be without disease)
Sarva Bhadrani Pashyantu (May all be safe)
Maa Kaschit Dukha Bhagh Bhavet (May none have misery of any sort)

The ‘all’ means all living beings and not just the humans. This is a Vedic prayer which is unique to Sanatan-Dharma (the Eternal Religion).

Vedic culture means no killing, no slavery, no hatred, no aggressors, no wickedness, no exploitation, universal brotherhood, freedom of speech/thought, and full knowledge of God.

Non-Vedic culture means killing, slavery, hatred, aggressors, wickedness, exploitation,  no universal brotherhood, no freedom of speech/thought, and unknown/invisible God (godlessness).

It is very important to learn yourself and then teach the philosophy of the Eternal Religion (Sanatan-Dharma) to your children and others. By not teaching the Vedic values to others, humans become degraded into following non-Vedic cultures. Thus become killers, slavers, haters, aggressive, wicked, exploiters, narrow minded, and godless.

It is the duty of parents to give spiritual knowledge to their children from early childhood so they can be slowly elevated to a higher consciousness and eventually to Krishna (God) consciousness. The only proven, seen, and known God. So they don’t come back to this miserable material creation and go back to the spiritual creation called Vaikuntha where everyone lives in the same body that is completely beautiful, full of bliss/love, full of knowledge, eternal, and with no trace of misery/suffering.
