O supporters of Hinduism, instead of practising Hindutva at the emotional level gain prowess through Spiritual Practice and then strive for Hindutva !

Introduction

‘There are many Hindus in our society who strive for Hindutva. They are very proud of Hinduism and are prepared to face any kind of hardships to protect it.They get agitated withHindu-haters and make all possible efforts to prevent harm to Hinduism and to stop denigration of Hindu Deities. What is important here is that, when we work for Hinduism or any other good cause, support from God is absolutely essential. Only then will our mission be successful. Even if we do not succeed due to an unfavourable period of time then our faith in Hinduism remains firm. I am enumerating some points below to show Hindu protagonists the significance of support from God, that is in other words, the importance of undertaking Spiritual Practice. – Sadhika[Jyeshtha Krushna Pratipada (27th June 2010)]

1.1 Ethics without Divine support is like a child deprived of parents

Mere ethics without Divine support is like a child deprived of parents. This means that in this frightful Kaliyug (era of strife) just being good, having good conduct, involvement in a good religious/righteous mission is not sufficient to attain success because the evil acts of evildoers during this period have reached a peak . Cruel evildoers are constantly hatching conspiracies to torment us. So not to prevent harm caused by them and to be able work for Hindutva at all times we need blessings from God and the grace of our Guru (spiritual guide) because finally only God and the Guru can ferry us through a crisis. To achieve that we have to undertake appropriate Spiritual Practice and seek their blessings. This is how we increase our spiritual prowess. [Sanstha and the Hindu Samiti are organisations which give proper guidance on Spiritual Practice ! – Compiler]

1.2 Following Dharma (righteousness) enhances the Sattva component and consequently the spiritual prowess

We do not want Hindutva to be practised at the emotional level. We want it to become our attitude as a result of continuous practice of achar (code of conduct) prescribed in Hinduism. This way Hindutva becomes powerful because by following the principles of Dharma we receive Divine blessings. Hence for all those who wish to participate in the mission of conserving Hindutva there is no alternative to Spiritual Practice , it is a must. Spiritual Practice enhances the Sattva component in you, creating spiritual prowess. This helps you to face any difficult situation in life with Divine protection. Also anti-Hindus and evildoers feel terrorised with the grace of God and they are prevented from harming us.

1.3 Spiritual experiences of being able to achieve impossible tasks with Divine support

You can get spiritual experiences of achieving impossible tasks with Divine support as energy from God is limitless. If we are devoted unto Him then when we call out to Him He rushes to our rescue and takes the task to successful completion. Hence the task is accomplished beyond our expectations. This in turn enhances our devotion unto Him . Actually He gets His own task done with us as mere participants. Yet He showers His grace upon us. In this way by surrendering doership to God if you strive for Hinduism then the mission will become even more expansive.

1.4 The true objective is not working for protection of the Hindu Dharma rather to win the grace of God

Our aim is not to protect the Hindu Dharma; it is to win the grace of God. To carry out a mission for Dharma you need tremendous spiritual prowess. As Saints possess this they can accomplish great missions by their sankalp (resolve) and even their presence. How much strength can we average humans possess and how much can we achieve with that ? Hence if we perform the task with the blessings and guidance from a Saint, we do not claim doership for it and the task is accomplished even more successfully . In addition we also receive Divine grace. Hence instead of working at the emotional level it is necessary to act after contemplation, with spiritual strength .

1.5 Importance of Divine support and grace of Saints !

Let us study a few incidents in the life of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj to understand this .

Slaying of Afzal Khan by Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj

Slaying of Afzal Khan by Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj

A. For two months before the meeting of Afzal Khan and Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj at Pratapgad, Samarth Ramdasswami, his Guru, would offer abhishek (ritualistic bathing with water or milk) to the Linga (Divine Phallus) of Deity Rudra (Shiva) every day at Mahabaleshwar. That protected Shivaji Maharaj and the enemy got killed. This shows that mere planning and expertise in warfare is insufficient. Spiritual strength is also necessary to achieve success.

B. Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj could easily escape from Aurangzeb’s prison because of blessings from two Saints and for his observing achardharma.

C. Merely with the blessings of Saints and the tej (radiance) generated in him due to Spiritual Practice Shivaji Maharaj could defeat the huge Mughal army and establish his own kingdom known as Hindavi Swarajya.

This makes it clear that to fight the cruel evildoers it is not sufficient to have only physical and mental strength or dedication unto a cause. To achieve success in the mission spiritual strength is very much essential .

It is my humble request to all Hindu protagonists to contemplate on this article and commence Spiritual Practice immediately to augment their spiritual prowess so that they can dedicate their lives for the Hindu cause wholeheartedly. I pray unto God and H.H.Doctor to give all Hindus protaganists the strength and wisdom to undertake Spiritual Practice !’
