The origin of Secularism - 'Advaita' .

This article is basically written on Secularism in India, which is described in The Constitution of India .


Before heading towards the main article let's see what is Secularism in The Constitution of India .
"The Preamble to the Constitution of India declares that India is a secular state. The term secularism in politics refers to the governmental practice of indifference towards religion. Indian concept of secularism takes is color from Article 15 Prohibition of discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth.
The Secularism in India is "To treat all religions   equally." (Said by Supreme Court.) 
 India recognizes laws based on religion. Hindus, Muslims, and Christians are governed by their own religious laws. "
- Ref : For details please check out Wikipedia Secularism In India . 
My Sincere thanks to Wikipedia Authors for this info.


Before saying anything on Secularism, we have take into consideration the biggest contradiction mentioned in the last line of the above quote.


Here is the interpretation in the context of Indian Philosophy - 'Advaita'


Secularism is the cultural, spiritual and humanitarian gift by India to this always conflicting world from ancient ages, even before the advent of Christianity, Judaism, Islamism.  The name of this wonderful gift is  'Advaita'. Advaita is a Sanskrit word, which is opposite to 'Dvaita' Dvaita means the difference - the difference between the two things. Dvaita shows they are not equal. So Advaita is the symbol of equality. Advaita means The Universal Oneness. According to Indian Philosophy which is globally known as Hindu Philosophy. Hinduism is a culture not religion because it has no limitations and boundaries. It is for every human being, not only human being but animals and plants too. In Ramayana the sages ask each other about even their plants "How are your plants?" Unbelievable love for environment. This comes from the principle of Advaita. Advaita teaches the oneness. We will describe this further in different chapters.


So this equality is described everywhere in Vedas, Upanishads, Shrimadbhagwadgeeta, Puranas in the language which is very easily graspable and practical in real life for the people of all the streams, from all the religions, from all the countries. 


So the origin of Humanity and Equality - The Secularism starts from here - from The India.


For all people, the spiritual path is divided mainly in three types of Yogas. Yoga is basically the addition or joining of two things. So the Yoga spiritually means The joining of man with the God. It will explained be properly as we go deep in the three types of Yoga,


Gyan Yoga - The path in which Yoga is achieved by the supreme knowledge.


Bhakti Yoga- The path in which Yoga is achieved by the Devotion.


Karma Yoga - The path in which the Yoga is achieved by the Karma or practicing duties without the desire and expectation of the results.


This time we are focused on the Secularism , so now we will not go in deep with these Yogas   in the spiritual context.


So the equality and the universal oneness is experienced when we achieve the true Yoga. Though it is very very difficult to achieve and live on this equality, as we start approaching this highest goal our life naturally starts to get purified and of course we start living on the equality. 


Now, we see how The True Secularism is achieved by The above mentioned Different paths of Yoga. After thinking a lot on Secularism again and again, my mind came to the conclusion that it is almost impossible to achieve and live on the complete secularism without knowing the Advaita. 


Without Advaita, Secularism will be just a word, as we see what is going on in India and in many countries.


Gyan Yoga - According to this path the Aatma or Soul of everything is one. So all are equal , though we have to behave according to the worldly differences but The Gyan Yogi sees the Aatma behind everybody,  so that person will not make injustice the torture or anything which is against the humanity and when they feel their Aatma and Other's Aatma are the equal. They respect all religions and feel that people has the right to worship the God they have faith in or to remain agnostic and the way to worship of their choice.


Bhakti Yoga - The devotee trusts only the form of the God , they are worshiping. But when this Yoga is achieved they feel everything is just the form of their beloved The God - e.g. I worship Lord Krishna then I will experience all are the form of Him. And then how will I hurt my beloved God.

This discussion is very deep and can not be completed in one or two articles. But I think the main theme is well - expressed in the above analysis.  We will have such precious visions on Indian Culture and Philosophy further more. Please share your thoughts and vision here.


P.S. : The links for the information about ChristianityJudaismIslamism are from Wikipedia. The deep thoughts on all these from our site are not presented yet. Will try to present it.

Life Is So Beautiful....When.....Pt-2

The Life is very very beautiful when every moment is dedicated to The God Naturally. The spiritual path by which I am blessed is Siddhayoga (Mahayoga) in which prime importance is to the natural life and natural spiritual experience, nothing should be done forcefully, the total surrender to the Mother Goddess or The Sadgurudeva.

The beautiful image below is RadhaKrishna Dev in BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir in my city. Can anybody compare their beauty? It's just Mohini - Fascination of them...........

This life song is saying something again.....I really wonder what is this............


LOVE MEANS ONLY YOU!


Life becomes more beautiful 
when I see a smiling flower
I know You are smiling
Life becomes more beautiful 
when 
 a sudden raindrop touches me
I know it's You! Surprise!
Life is so beautiful
when I close my eyes
and
Feel you near me.
Life is so beautiful
When 
I alone fight with the problems 
Coz I know
You are in my heart
Making me strong always!
Life is so beautiful.
Life is so beautiful
You have given me eveything
YOU made my life complete
Life is very beautiful
when 
I know Yes!
You are the one who 
Will never leave me alone,
Never cheat me,
Will never hate me,
Will never see me by material eyes
Life is so beautiful
I am in love with You! 
I love this life and I love YOU!
And my life became completely beautiful
when 
I started following you
I have left all that
logics and brain which
creates distance between us
Now, 
I have left my Ego who was the 
Wall between us.
Now.
 I left all that knowledge
which parted us
And 
I have got You! 
My Love , My Breath, My Soul
All relations are ended, dissolved in YOU!


त्वमेव माता च  पिता त्वमेव 
त्वमेव बंधुश्च सखा त्वमेव 
त्वमेव विद्या द्रविणं त्वमेव 
त्वमेव सर्वं मम देव देव 


I never sung this Prayer for You! I never felt that really! But I mean this now! I don't know how, but I mean this now.

YOU ARE THE ONLY MOTHER
YOU ARE THE ONLY FATHER
YOU ARE THE ONLY BROTHER
YOU ARE MY EVERYTHING 
OH! MY DEAREST GOD!
YOU ARE MY EVERYTHING.


Is this the highest goal of life?
Have I achieved it?
Is this the 'Samadhi?' in which everything the mediator,meditation,the subject of meditation become 'ONE'?
Is this the 'Bhaktiyoga' in which the Devotee, The Devotion and The God become ONE!
Is this the complete Salvation?

I don't know Anything
Because
The God is my 
'EVERYTHING'
