Foster spiritual emotion (bhav), not mere emotions for the Nation !

Introduction

 

Often we feel dejected and at times also become emotional about the scenario of life-threatening acts, poverty and corruption in the Nation. We dream about an ideal Nation; but it only remains a dream.  We do feel intensely for our nation in waves but with passage of time this feeling dies down. Only if we feel bhav towards our Nation then do we feel like doing something to improve the circumstances  in the  country. Here an attempt has been made to explain the meaning of bhav why it is necessary and how to awaken it to some extent. 

Bhav is superior to emotion !

Emotions are perceived at the mental level. Emotion developed spontaneously in response  to a situation is temporary. On the other hand bhav is awakened in the subconscious mind. Though bhav is also generated spontaneously in response to a situation its awareness lasts for a long time. That is why  bhav is superior to mere emotion.

Contemplate on whether you have bhav for the nation by turning inwards!

Feeling dejected about our countrymen suffering due to starvation, the atrocities on our women, Hindu brethren getting killed in communal riots etc and worrying about the pathetic state of the country and wondering when its transformation will occur  are but transient emotions for the country.

  •  
    • Do you ever eat less thinking of those crores of your countrymen who starve ?
    • Have you ever shed tears for the injustice inflicted on your brethren in communal riots?
    • Have you ever felt disgusted towards the comforts and pleasures you are enjoying after knowing about the pitiable condition of the Kashmiri Hindus who were forced to leave Kashmir due to terrorism?

—– if you get such feelings then  you have some amount of bhav for the Nation.

Bhav arises from Sacrifice and Divine support  !

Many mawlas (Shivaji Maharaj’s soldiers) helped Chattrapati Shivaj Maharaj to establish a Hindavi Swarajya.  Every mawla  would hold a tulsi (Holybasil) leaf in one hand and a burning coal in the other and ask Shivaji Maharaj ‘Tell me o king what shall I choose between the basil leaf and  the burning coal to get Swarajya (independence). I shall do as you say.’
The foundation of Hindu culture is  sacrifice . An accomplished state is  a part of the fruit of Hindu culture. So it is but natural  to develop bhav for the Nation through an attitude of sacrifice.
Bhav is a reaction at the  spiritual level. Pure bhav for the Nation can develop only through Divine support . ‘O youth, if you are struggling for the survival of  the Nation then it should accept  the Hindu religious code of conduct completely ’, said Swami Vivekanand. There is total surrender in bhav. Only in total surrender does God bless us. Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj had to face several  obstacles when establishing Hindavi Swarajya but he was able to overcome all of them because of his intense faith in  Deity Bhavanimata and also his righteous conduct .

To develop bhav for the Nation perform your duties for Dharma (religion) or do sadhana !

Only if one has bhav  for the  Nation then  his actions will  be in the interest of the Nation. Though this is an undisputed fact   it is equally true that if you  do something for the  Nation as your duty unto Dharma or simply as sadhana then  you will gradually develop bhav for the Nation. What can you do to achieve  this? Follow the guidance of  Saints who have  deep concern for the Nation, give donations to organisations doing selfless social service for national welfare and above all  become a part of  their mission !

The Desirable Mission of H.H. Dr. of creating social awareness about the Nation

A Saint who is perpetually engaged in the mission of giving spiritual guidance along with  guidance for protecting the Nation, to  society and Himself is  striving for the sake of the Nation incessantly, is H.H. Dr.! Each and everyone of us  thinks about the Nation in some way or the other. H.H.Dr. has undertaken this supreme task of enhancing these thoughts in society, for the last fifteen  years. He started the periodicals of ‘ Prabhat’ to create social awareness by  publishing fiery  articles. He was their editor for a year. Today the recognition that the periodicals are receiving as ‘the Daily expressing the feelings of patriotic Hindus’, is solely due to the merits behind the thoughts of H.H.Dr. ! He wrote Holy texts  on, ‘The Kashmir issue’, ‘The mentality of Pakistan’, ‘Pakistan’s Strategic Superiority over  Bharat’,  ‘The Kargil War’ and ‘Social Upliftment, National Security  and Awareness of Righteousness’, to awaken the Nation.  He has also compiled hundreds of series of articles relating to corruption, journalism, justice, etc. to create social awareness.

The Sanstha and Hindu Samiti are striving to awaken the nation

By founding the Sanstha H.H. Dr. opened the doors of spiritual progress to sadhaks. When guiding them on sadhana He also kindled national pride in them. That is why today Sanstha’s sadhaks organise discourses  on national security, at various places. In schools awareness is created on the Nation through lectures followed by questionnaires to students. Through  street plays, rallies for promoting Dharma, etc. they involve both young and old in this national mission. The Hindu Samiti striving for uniting Hindus and creating awareness plays an equally important role in the mission of national security by launching campaigns  to stop dishonour  of national emblems such as  the national flag, national anthem etc. stopping the fabrication of the map of Bharat, the deliberate changes in history books in school textbooks and the deliberate degradation of freedom fighters and revolutionaries in the textbooks. Through such campaigns,  the Samiti is doing great work for the Nation. That is why participation in the activities of the Hindu Samiti and Sanstha would amount to rendering service unto the Nation.

It will be possible to establish a Divine Kingdom only with bhav

One fostering bhav for  the Nation is a true patriot. An extremely beautiful Divine Kingdom will be established with  the guidance of Saints through such patriots. God is giving you an invaluable opportunity to participate in this mission of his by becoming a patriot. Do not let go of this opportunity !
