Pillar 4 to 9
|4. Truth is God
God has many names but if we find one, it is ‘Satya’
or truth - Truth is God. The knowledge that keeps us away from Truth is
in vain. Let us respect other
religions just as we respect our own.Only tolerance is not enough. The true
bliss does not come from outside, it comes from within.
|5. Asteya ( Not to Steal
Asteya means not to steal. That a thief knows truth and observes
religion of love is impossible. To take a thing which is not necessary from
it's possessor-even with his permission is a theft. One who observes ‘asteya’
has to be very humble, thoughtful and alert and has to live very simply.
|6. Brahmacharya ( Celibacy
If a man dedicated to truth craves for any other thing, he becomes
corrupted. Celibacy means the search for trut and the action related to
it. The suppression of lust itself is celibacy. So far, we have seen no
example of anyone who has achieved truth through indulgence in luxuries.
|7. The Hidden Force
So many people of the world still say that the structure of the
world is not based on the power of weapon, structure of the world is based
on the power of weapon, but on truth, compassion or the force of soul. Even
despite the great wars and battles the world has survived. This is a great
proof of this reality. It means there is some force other than a war which
stands as a support.
|8. One People (One Nationalism
The nation which wants to utilize the self-rule cannot hate its
leaders and elders.
Only the people of mature intelligence can enjoy the self-rule, not the
shallow-minded or the hasty.
|9. Humility and Service
Where is a moment of rest for the sea ? The same thing applies
to us.When we mix into the sea of divinity, the rest goes, even the necessity
of the rest goes.That is the real rest. So the divinity expects from us
a service to every living being and all sacrifice from our side.Having retired
in every way, we have neither a day nor Friday or Sunday for that matter.
One who has sacrificed all has experienced this.
