O God, bestow upon us energy, intellect and inspiration for the service of Dharmajagruti through the medium of this Convention ! – H.H. Das Maharaj
H.H. Das Maharaj
1.This grand Convention is organised by the grace of H.H. Dr. Athavale for the establishment of Hindu Rashtra ! : ‘This grand Convention is organised by the grace of H.H. Gurudev for the establishment and protection of Hindu Rashtra. Though people do know the importance of chanting and prayers, they are not regular in its practice. If we chant and pray regularly, there will not be any obstacles in the seva (service) of Dharmajagruti (Awakening of Dharma)
2. The present war-like situation has arisen because the people are interested only in wealth and worldly pleasures, and they have neglected Spirituality : A very frightening situation has arisen not only in Bharat but all over the world. The world is at such a stage that destruction can occur any time. Foreseeing the ferocity of the destruction of Mahabharat war, Sage Vyas had declared, “O you people blinded by the pride and arrogance, Dharma is always superior to Artha (wealth) and Kama (worldly pleasures). Do not get into problems by giving unnecessary importance to wealth. Give importance to Spirituality.” However, those arrogant people blinded with lure of Artha and Kama did not listen to Him and there was war on Kurukshetra for 18 days. A similar situation exists today.
3. In the battle between Deities and demons, ‘Destruction of adharma (unrighteousness) and victory to Dharma’ is inevitable and only chanting and prayers are essential to surmount the destructive energies : Presently, on one side there are those affluent people with evil power ready to destroy the world with nuclear weapons while on other hand there are Saints and seekers who are praying to God for welfare of all the world. In this battle between Deities and demons, ‘Destruction of Adharma and victory to Dharma’ is inevitable. Therefore, there is need to put in efforts, founded on the devotion to God as advised by Samarth Ramdas Swami, for the destruction of weapons of mass destruction in the world.
People who love Dharma do not possess the weapons that are with the destructive people; but they do possess immense power of God’s Name and prayers that can overcome the destructive power. Even if all the virtuous people in the world pray to God every moment then all the unwanted things in the world will be eliminated and peace and happiness will prevail all over. Similarly, these destructive instruments can be converted into constructive instruments within no time.
4. It is essential to have bhav (spiritual emotion) that it is God Himself who is accomplishing this Convention ! : The present Convention that is going on by the grace of Guru is one part of Dharmarakshan (Protection of Dharma) and Divine service mentioned above. All the seekers should have a bhav that it is God Himself who is accomplishing this Convention and perform seva. Let us pray unto Holy feet of God to bestow us with energy, intellect and inspiration for the service of Dharmajagruti !
