Margashirsha Pournima, Kaliyug Varsha 5111
By Krishnamurthi Rao
To forgive is divine. Can we forgive or are there constraints/restraints in forgiving? When one reads the Bible, and particularly Luke chapter 23, verse 34, Jesus said at the time of crucifixion, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.”
In 2000 years our thinking has changed and we are more on the punishment side. We go back into the motive/intention of the perpetrators of the crime, but in this context we should find out who the brain behind is. N V Ghodse assassinated Mahatma Gandhi, but he was only an instrument, the brain behind was Apte who too was hanged.
Instead of torture by ECT of the persons apprehended on suspicion in the Margao blast, it would be better if we treat them more humanely, as in all likelihood, the cat would be out of the bag. The Canadian therapist, Mr Pierre Lavelle said that everyday the media carries sensational news viz bomb blast, murder, rape, corruption, bribery, bridal burning or suicidal cases; in short that is evil. He said further that with each act of violence comes a great opportunity to forgive.
The ministers, gram panchayat had their say. The police in Goa are doing a commendable job; despite restrictions and the outcome is the SIT, which have been investigating. The police should be allowed a free hand.
The media should concentrate more on the humanitarian aspect, without being swayed by unwanted comments originating from their own imagination. What we require is safeguarding of national interest in the wake of proposed terrorism.
Robert Assaglioli observed, “Without forgiveness, life is governed by a endless cycle of resentment and retaliation. The only thing we have to fear is the fear itself - nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralysis efforts of retreat into advance.
The Sanathan Sanstha is engaged in spiritual science research. There you will get a systematic study of the structures and behaviour of physical, natural and spiritual world, which can be experienced across all races, cultures, religion, nationalities and gender given the same experimental conditions.
I have visited the Sanathan Sanstha ashram at Ramnathi, and my wife and me even partook of the satwic meal served, which enables the mind, which is always fluctuating to get rid of itself of sex-lust, anger, greed, ego and attachment. The sadhaks work from 8.30 a.m to 11 p.m. as they are residents at the ashram engaged in spiritual research. I found doctors of medicine, psychiatrists, etc completely surrendered for spiritual research. There was cleanliness and hygienic conditions. Their philosophy/ideology is that, they cannot bear the idea of defaming Hindu gods and goddesses, particularly Lord Shiv and Lord Ganesh. There are more than 200 inmates, both male and female and all inmates are provided free food and accommodation.
I know for a fact that what is written in the papers is absolutely false. Papers say the persons sitting before the computers are not professionals but are being trained at the ashram.
The Ashram is doing yeomen service viz spiritual service at their end and the SIT are doing their job with integrity and honesty. The Sanathan Sanstha also publishes more than 125 holy texts in 12 languages. These texts give answers to the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of spirituality and a scientific insight into the subtle topics. The ashram also believes in the importance and benefits of chanting which helps a spiritualist in alleviating physical and psychological ailments, increasing concentration, reducing sorrow, nullifying all sins. Chanting ends in God realisation. Finally enough is enough.
