Jai Jai Shankar

Today Vaishakh Shukla Panchami is the birth anniversary – Jayanti of Jagadguru – Guru of the world Adi Shankaracharya. Bharat (India) is the only land, from where people didn’t conquer the world by bloodshed but by the love, by spreading the supreme knowledge – The Gyana. Adi Shankaracharya has spread the Advaita philosophy. 

We are here on Gurukripa, really because of Advita philosophy, because of Adi Shankaracharya. 

Adi Shankaracharya, lived on this earth only for thirty two years, in which He became Sanyasi at childhood at the age of eight and found His Guru, and spread the Advaita Philosophy in the world. 

Adi Shankaracharya is a Sanyasi who conquered the world, without any weapon. His love for the mankind, His love for the Advaita, the Indian culture of oneness, made him Jagadguru the Guru of this world. 

Today, hatred among religionsgenocides for lust of power by the provoking fanaticism, one human torturing another human just because he/ she doesn't believe fanatic's faith, calling human as infidel, is destroying the earth. We say, we live in twenty first century, then can't we become mature enough to think beyond religious hatred. Can't we try to understand the pain of others?

The only solution to today's wars, hatred, weapons is the Advaita Philosophy. The oneness. The Universal Brotherhood. We all are brothers.

Let everybody follow his or her faith, why should we bother, until and unless it is against humanity or harming nature and animals?

Let everybody find the peace by the path, they want. Why should we force that God means something that we believe only?

If anybody doesn't believe in any religion, let them live happily with the thoughts they have. Why should we force?

Forceful conversion is the biggest crime, it is the effort to kill the identity of the person, the faith of the person. Nobody has the right to kill the faith.

What is the reason of Islamist Terrorism worldwide? Just because fanatics don't know the Advaita - The Oneness, they think that the nonbeliever will be burnt in the hellfire. Please do not make an opinion that I am against any religion.

Good and bad beliefs are there in every religion, culture, but the point here I wish to raise is that we should be ready to understand and accept the 'evil' fanatic beliefs which reject the life for non-believers, which are harmful to the mankind and should be ready to correct them.

Advaita Philosophy is the only philosophy which can be accepted by everybody. You are not different from the Brahman - Tattvamasi. - You are That is the message of Advaita. This means you are not the sinner. You are not bad. You can experience The oneness with the Parmeshwar, in this very life. For this realization, there are different ways, paths and you are free to choose any or many of them, like Gyanyoga, Bhaktiyoga, Karmayoga, Mantrayoga, Layayoga, Hathyoga. These paths are for everybody, whatever may be their religious faith, they can follow the yoga. 

Jagadguru Adi Shankaracharya and His work, his knowledge are needed very much today. And we all should become the warrior – a peaceful warrior to fight against the hatred about different faiths and religions, by the love of Advaita Philosophy. This is the message of the life of Adi Shankaracharya. 

Will you be one of them?
