उदीयमान राष्ट्रदृष्टि – 4

हिन्दू संस्कृति ही भारतवर्ष की राष्ट्रीय संस्कृति है। सनातन धर्म की यह संस्कृति एक विराट तथा बहुमुखी संस्कृति है। किन्तु साथ ही साथ यह एक ऐसी संस्कृति है जो मानवजाति के लिए स्वभाव-सुलभ है। इस संस्कृति में ऐसा कुछ भी नहीं जिसे कृत्रिम कहा जा सके, जिसका निर्माण मनुष्य के बाह्य मानस द्वारा हुआ हो, और जिसको ईसाइयत, इस्लाम तथा कम्युनिज्म की संस्कृतियों की नाईं बलात् लादा गया हो। अतएव ऐसी प्रत्येक संस्कृति को जो हिन्दू संस्कृति के अनुकूल न हो, जो सनातन धर्म की संस्कृति के साथ मेल न खाती हो, भारतवर्ष से भागना पड़ेगा।

भारतीय दार्शनिक दृष्टि में समय का विचार

समय एक रेखीय, एकल-दिशात्मक गति नहीं है, जैसे कि एक तीर अतीत से भविष्य की ओर गति करता है। यह "हमारी यांत्रिक दुनिया के एक सुविधाजनक भ्रम से ज्यादा कुछ नहीं है, जो एक जीवंत समय को एक फ्रैक्टल के आंतरिक कर्लिंग विवरण के साथ जोड़ता है।" जब हम अनंत काल की वक्रता में प्रवेश करते हैं, तो हम जीवन की सच्ची आंतरिक लय की परिपूर्णता का अनुभव करते हैं।

Cave, Cosmos, and Consciousness Connection: The Origin of Sacred Space

India also has many natural caves from north to south and east to west, which early humans used as shelters and living spaces. The emptiness of the cave might have given them the expression of the sky (Aakasha Tattva), and the sky is the origin place for all celestial and non-celestial beings. Later, these caves became an example of another temple’s architectural development as the space in the temple was observed as Garbhagriha.

Book review on “Virtue, Success, Pleasure, and Liberation” by Alain Daniélou

The ancient Indian society had long ago successfully opened the door for an equal free-for-all competition, where only the weakest remained the victim. The Hindu system, serving as the universal and timeless model, is the outcome of a noble attempt to place mankind in the plan of creation and recognize the meaning of its different aspects like caste, activities, individual rights, mental possibilities and methods of implications of this diversity in intergroup relations.

The English Language as Original Sin

In India the advantages of an English education are widely accepted by the Urban population which sends their own children to such institutions whenever possible. Opposed to this are the millions of children in rural areas who have no other recourse but to use the local schools employing the regional language. The fact that Japan has been able to modernize without benefit of a Western language or Israel could resurrect Hebrew for contemporary purposes, notwithstanding, there remains resistance to the suggestion that the adoption of English continues to serve as a barrier to social and economic progress in South Asia.

Book review on “Caste as Social Capital: The Complex Place of Caste in Indian Society” by Ramachandran Vaidyanathan

If anyone understands the term social capital, then he definitely knows that caste is also a social capital. We must also realize, as shown from plenty of data points in the book, that though people from different backgrounds indulge in particular activities and retain a common idea of belongingness and identity with their own communities, this in due course also encourages them in taking up that specific livelihood. Also getting credits and risk mitigation becomes easier for them. At least in the non-organized sector, Indian business is primarily based on relationships and without any question, here caste definitely works as a social capital!
