OUR MODERN GENERATION:-1. IN THESE HECTIC DAYS OF TALL-TALKING, SLOGAN HURLING AND EMPTY ENDEAVOUR THE SEEMINGLY INTELLECTUAL ERA VERY URGENTLY NEEDS SOME KIND OF A SELF-EDUCATION IN INDEPENDENT THINKING AND IN THE FUNDAMENTAL VALUES OF TRUE LIVING. OR ELSE OUR GENERATION, IN ITS BLIND HURRY, DISSIPATING AIMS AND THOUGHTLESS ACTIVITIES MIGHT SOON BUMP THE WORLD DOWN A PRECIPICE INTO SOME TRAGIC CATASTROPHE.
THIS CAN BE SAID, NO DOUBT, OF ALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD, BUT IT IS MORE TRULY SO IN THE MODERN HISTORY OF OUR OWN NATION. IN OUR OVER-ENTHUSIASM AN IMMATURE COUNTRY IS TRYING TO BRING ABOUT AN ORGANISED REVOLUTION ALL AROUND, WHEREIN THE ILLITERATE  MILLIONS AND THE RELATIVELY FEW LITERATE BUT WEAK MEN AND WOMEN ARE BING PUSHED FORWARD INTO THE FRONT RANK WHERE THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE FIGHTING FOR OR HOW THEY ARE TO FIGHT. SUCH COLOSSAL FIGHT AT ALL LEVELS FOR A RENAISSANCE LIFE CANNOT BE BROUGHT ABOUT UNTIL THE PEOPLE OF THE COUNTRY ARE EDUCATED SUFFICIENTLY TO FEEL THE INSPIRA…
PROBLEMS HANDLING:-5.
THEREFORE, EACH OF US FACING THE UPHEAVALS IN ONE'S OWN INDIVIDUAL LIFE. THE THREAT MAY BE PHYSICAL, MENTAL, INTELLECTUAL OR SPIRITUAL. AT EACH LEVEL THE PROBLEMS ARE TO BE SOLVED BY REMEDIES APPLICABLE TO THAT LEVEL ALONE. A LOVE-LORN LASS CANNOT ESCAPE HER SENSE OF DISAPPOINTMENT IF SHE IS PRESENTED WITH A HUGE INSURANCE POLICY FULLY PAID UP. AN INTELLECTUAL RESTLESSNESS CANNOT BE QUIETENED BY ADDED PHYSICAL COMFORTS OR SHOWING MORE AND MORE LOVE AND SYMPATHY TOWARDS THE RESTLESS.
THE SPIRITUALITY  THIRSTY CAN FIND A REAL CONSOLATION ONLY IN AND THROUGH CONSTANT SPIRITUAL PRACTICES. THERE IS NO SHORT-CUT,  NO QUICK PATH, NO MYSTERIOUS AND SECRET WAY. THE GRAND OLD PATH HAS TO BE TRODDEN TO REACH THE ETERNAL GOAL OF PERFECT PEACE----EHPERIENCE.[END] [BY SWAMI CHINMAYANANDA]
PROBLEMS  HANDLING:-4.
A PROBLEM IS NEVER SOLVED BY SUCCUMBING OURSELVES TO IT. IN FACT PROBLEMS GROW, FATTENED AND NOURISHED BY THE NUMBER OF VICTIMS THAT COME UNDER ITS ONSLAUGHT. THIS IS EQUALLY TRUE BOTH IN THE COMMUNAL LIFE AS WELL AS IN THE INDIVIDUAL LIFE.
PROBLEMS OF A NATION ARE TO BE FACED BOLDLY BY THE PEOPLE THEMSELVES. THAT IS A SUCCESSFUL AND THRIVING COMMUNITY WHICH IS COMPETENT AND COURAGEOUS ENOUGH TO FACE ITS OWN PROBLEMS. MEN AND WOMEN COMPRISES WITH THEM IN THE DIRE ATTITUDE OF ESCAPISM IS PEOPLE  NOTED FOR UTTER FAILURES ALL THROUGH THEIR LIFE.
PROBLEMS HANDLING:-3. ---------------------------------------------------/
GRAVE PROBLEMS CAN DRIVE ONLY UNINTELLIGENT MEN AND WOMEN OF UNDISCIPLINED THOUGHT AND HABITS TO AN EARLY GRAVE. OTHERS WALK SIDE BY SIDE WITH THEIR GRAVE PROBLEMS AND SO MANIPULATE THE CIRCUMSTANCES AND MAKE USE OF THE VARIOUS HAPPENINGS AROUND THEM THAT THEY ALWAYS SUCCESSFULLY PUSH THE PROBLEMS INTO THE GRAVE AND THEMSELVES SAFELY WALK AWAY! 
SUCH MEN AND WOMEN ARE THE MIGHTY PEOPLE OF DESTINY IN THE WORLD. BUT THE MAJORITY OF US MAKE THE PILGRIMAGE NOT HAND IN HAND WITH OUR PROBLEMS BUT WE ARE DRIVEN BY PROBLEMS AND THE PROBLEMS PUSH US INTO AN UNTIMELY GRAVE OF SORROW.
IN SHORT MAKE A GRAVE FOR ALL PROBLEMS FOR OURSELVES. EVEN THE GRAVE IS NO PROBLEM, FOR THOSE WHO KNOW HOW TO MEET IT.
PROBLEMS HANDLING:-2. -------------------------------------------------------/
Some times grave problems present themselves to an individual and completely roll him/her down to utter desperation. In all such cases we can easily discover a hundred others, who, having faced similar problems have come out of them all victoriously, untouched by their grinning threats. Loss of wealth or a dear and near relation are all examples, and a few come to consider these as grave problems, while others seem to discover in themselves a secret spring of some mysterious power encouraged by which they walk out of their heart pangs to face the problem in an open sun lit world.
[to be contd]
Problems Handling:-1. ------------------------------------------/ Who has no problems? But all are not victimised by their own problems. Majority are; but not all. A crowd of problems marching towards us with plans to conquer us is life to the majority but some rare folks discover, even in the midst of a host of threatening problems, an artistic way of tackling them all to laughter! This art in fact should be the art of living unaffected by little problems of our life.[contd] By Swami Chinmayananda.
Ideal Living:-4. -----------------------------/ An idler alone is satisfied by shop window gazing. Walk out into the world. Sweat and toil. Earn and save. And, rich with the fruits of your own honest labor return to the shop. Push, open the door, walk in. Approach the counter. Order the thing of your fascination. And come to possess it as your own. So too, never allow to feel satisfied by recognizing glories in somebody's life; When you admire the meekness of Christ, the compassion of  Buddha,the gorgeous joy of Krishna, the dignified sufferings of Rama,the wisdom of Vasishta or the dynamic philosophy of Sankara, never sit back only to gaze at them and in futile wonderment, merely come to believe them, but feel the urge to cultivate such a noble and divine personality in yourself. Be aggressively good. Strive hard and develop these traits and come to live and express it in the world. Be a Arjuna. What they did we too can do. There is nothing we cannot achieve. There is nothing im…
Ideal Living:-3. -----------------------------/ As seekers and sincere aspirants to a higher cultural life you all must learn to translate  your ideal picture  of yourself in your own work-a-day life. This is only possible through regular and sincere self-examination and long and careful introspection. Each day see the drama of your own day's life thrown upon the screen of; your own mind and watch. Edit the play; take new decisions; discover the faults; avoid them in your next 24-hours'life. Thus, one by one weed out your weaknesses in your physical contacts and dealings, in your mental feelings and emotions, and in your intellectual estimations of things and beings.
Ideal Living:-2. -----------------------------/
We have thus, in each one of us, a double personality playing in all times; one, a personality which we believe in and anotherwith which we act out. Roughly  we can attribute the former to our intellectual entity  and the later to our physical person. Educated as we are, as a product of our study of, appreciation for and admiration to some of the perfect qualities, both moral and ethical, in other men, we have a vague picture of the ideal that we wish to be. This picture of the ideal, when entertained for long in ourselves, becomes so clearly impressedin ourselves that we come to believe that we are ideal that we cherish. But alas! others suffer and groan under persecutions of what we actually are in our life. Our self-unfoldment, our growth in ourselves, our personality charm can burst forth in all its fragrance and joy into full bloom only when we plan for and bring about an actual translation of our idealism into our day to day life.…
IDEAL LIVING:-1. ------------------------------------------ YOU ARE NOT, UNFORTUNATELY, WHAT YOU THINK YOURSELF TO BE. YOU THINK YOU ARE SUCCESSFUL; OTHER S IN YOUR OFFICE ARE ATTRIBUTING YOUR CHAIR, PERHAPS TO THE GREATNESS OF YOUR FATHER IN LAW. YOU THINK YOU ARE EFFICIENT AND STRICT; OTHERS CONSIDER YOU AS WEAK AND BAD TEMPERED. YOU IMAGINE THAT YOU ARE A GREAT ROMEO TO YOUR NEIGHBOUR'S SISTER; SHE TAKES YOU TO BE A LUNATIC THOUGH OF AN INTERESTING AND ENTERTAINING TYPE. THUS, WHAT YOU ESTIMATE YOURSELF TO BE AND WHAT OTHERS JUDGE OF YOU FROM YOUR OWN ACTIONS ARE POLES APART FROM EACH OTHER. YOUR SO CALLED ESTIMATE OF YOURSELF IS BUT YOUR INTELLECTUAL BELIEF IN SOME IDEAL PICTURE OF YOURSELF; BUT IN YOUR DEALING WITH THE WORLD OUTSIDE YOU ARE ACTING JUST OPPOSITE  AND THE ONLY ONE WHO IS TOTALLY UNCONSCIOUS OF THE UGLINESS IS YOURSELF.
BHARATHAM AND HER CULTURE:- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------/ The upanishad culture is the culture of our country Bharatam. The training given to the citizens of Bharatam to live this Sanatana Dharma is called Hinduism.Cultural ideas in circulation is religion,and frm time to time a religion needs must change.
We must rediscover our religion. Treat it with healthy mind of our  immortal philosophy.
Prune its overcrowded and ugly extensions. And through an ardent   re-education we must re-discover a cure for the alien idealisms  from which our culture is at the moment suffering. 

For all this we must rediscover a team of stalwart hearts, educated fully in the divine contents of our scriptures ---------a team of workers who should go out with a Christian zeal , with Buddhist  compassion, an Islamic daring, and spread the right understanding among the people.

They must be equipped with a thorough  knowledge of the scriptures, a firm moral integrity, an honest faith and a fiery zeal to help the country to rediscover its own HEAD AND HEART.   

WHY ETHICS?- -----------------------------/ In the religion of the Rishies, ethics and morality are not a set of heartless rules of "do's"and "don'ts", with a baseless threat of an eternal damnation for all those who dare disobey those prophet-made rules. This is at once the strength and weakness of Hinduism.  
HEALTHY PERSON LIVING IN A PROGRESSIVE STATE ALONE CAN BRING ABOUT A PROSPERITY THAT CAN WAFT THE FRAGRENCE  OF PEACE AND HAPPYNESS. THIS HORMONIOUS ORCHESTRA PLAYED BETWEEN THE WITHIN AND WITHOUT OF HUMANIS THE TRUE "SREYAS"OF THE WORLD.
IN GEETA WE HAVE THIS SCHEME OF LIFE VIVDLY PAINTED. THIS SACRED SCRIPTURE OF MANKIND IN ITS CONCLUDING STANZA DECLARES OPENLY THIS TRUTH; "WHERE THE SACRED KRISHNA AND THE DYNAMIC ARJUNA ARE TOGETHER, THERE ALONE IS THE PEACEFUL PROSPERITY, DYNAMIC PROGRESS, AND ENDURING WELFARE."
THE SACRED AND THE SECULAR CAN BE BLENDED; THEY SHOULD BE INTEGRATED IF HUMAN IS TO BE SAVED--- I F THE WORLD  IS TO BE SAVED---IF THE WORLD IS TO BE REDEEMED FROM ITS SELF-DESTRUCTION

Conspiracies of Western Countries against India to conquer by religion and resources:-

Summary


In this essay, the motive and message for all Indians is to be aware of the conspiracies of western countries against our country in the past and in the present to conquer it by its religion and resources. The explanation is given by taking the principles of Chanakya sutras into consideration and that to rightly explain about the present status of economy and ethics of our country and its citizens more particularly the Hindus.


History
