Pillar 10 to 14
|10. The Knowledge
One who fills his brain with meaningless things is an illegal
possessor. The thoughts that keep us aloof from God or takes us away from
Him are an
unwanted possession and so it is worth being given up. Today, we store up
so many things in the name of knowledge. That is not knowledge but ignorance,
and instead of being advantageous, it is harmful.
|11. Sarva Dharma Samabhaav
If we believe in all religions, there is no need to treat any
religion as high or low. Where, then, is the need of more religions ?
Soul is one but human bodies are uncountable. The root of religions is one,
just as the root of a tree, but the leaves are uncountable
|12. Know your Self
Nothing is possible without toiling or penance. How is self-finding possible
? The thing gained out of fear lasts so long as there is fear before.
One who is clean from inside cannot be unclean from outside
|13. Abolishment of Untouchability
The custom of untouchability is not a religion but obscurantism. If soul
is one and God is one, no one is untouchable. To shun the difference between
man and man itself is equal to leaving the sense of touchable and untouchable.
The difference of caste has done a great harm to the
Hindu religion.The sense of high and low underlying there is fatal to
the religion. The action without any expectation of fruits is a source
of strength because the action without any expectation is devotion to
God.The work coming out from a pure heart is never fruitless. The man
who cannot control himself, can never control others in a real sense.
From moment to moment I feel that ‘Maun’ (silence) is the best
speech.If you want to speak, speak as little as possible. If one word
is enough, do
not use two. The mankind is tested in the society itself,not on the top
of the Himaalay.
|14. God's Place
To be the law-observing people, truly means that we are a people having
an urge for truth but the training to follow the laws that we do not like
is a disdain to manhood, against the religion and a limit of slavery.
The man who knows his human element and is afraid of
God has no fear from others.
One who has lost the element of self has lost everything.
Listen to the speech of saints, read shastra(religious
scriptures),be learned-but if you do not give a place to God in your heart,
you have done nothing.
The matter of surprise is that a Vaidya (A physician
practicing the Ayurvedic System of Medicines) dies, a doctor dies and
even then we roam after them but we forget Ram who never dies, lives for
ever and is an unflinched Vaidya.
