Countless discourses, thousands of
letters and hundreds of press statements by Shri Guru are now part of the
cherished knowledge legacy of humanity. The life of Shri Guru is lustrous
and multi - faceted. His thoughts are a perennial source of inspiration
for mankind. Here are a few rays of that brilliance:
1. Fearlessness is the first and foremost
virtue of the brave, and the starting point of all sublime qualities.
2. 'This is my Dharma, my Vedanta.
This is my Hindu Rashtra. I have to live and strive for its realization.
I must live as an example for the entire world to follow'-only such abiding
faith would provide a firm foundation for reorganization of theHindus.
3. The will of a person becomes tempered
like steel when he prepares himself for the supreme sacrifice for a just
and lofty goal.
4. We are not so narrow-minded as to
call any one as 'alien' merely because he has changed his mode of worship.
We have no objection to the use of any name in addressing God. We in the
Sangh are Hindus in every particle of ours. That is why we respect all
religious faiths equally. A person with religious intolerance cannot be
called a Hindu at all.
5. The most demeaning sin is to remain
weak in the world. It not only destroys us, but also incites others to
attack us with violence.
6. No doubt it requires two to fight.
But both of them need not necessarily be fighters. It is, all the same,
a fight, even if one goes on beating and the other gets beaten. There is
no guarantee that others would behave properly with us even if we remain
peaceful and cordial with them.
7. There must be an axis at the center
of a wheel if it has to rotate. No wheel would rotate if its axis were
outside it. There cannot be a circle with its center outside it. It is
impossibility. Those cherishing extra-national loyalties can only be called
traitors. Will it not be treacherous if an individual is drawing inspiration
from elements beyond the boundaries of his country?
8. A grain of salt completely dissolves
in water, and then retains no separate existence. But the salty taste will
beevident in each drop of that water. Likewise an individual should dissolve
him in the nation.
