Make a comprehensive sacrifice to reinstate Dharma !
Gurupournima is the day to express gratitude unto the Guru. On this day, every theist Hindu offers body-mind-wealth as per his ability to his spiritual Guru. Offering these has paramount importance in Spirituality. This is not a one day offering that the Guru Principle expects from a disciple. What it expects is a comprehensive sacrifice (every possession including body and mind). Attaining Moksha (Final Liberation) is not possible without such a sacrifice; hence, those desirous of spiritual progress must make a comprehensive sacrifice.
Whether it is theist Hindus who abide by Dharma in personal life or Hindus who are social workers, patriots and dedicated volunteers, they may find it difficult to make such a sacrifice a part of their spiritual practice. However, they may find making such a sacrifice for serving the Nation & Dharma easier. In the present times, being active to reinstate Dharma is the best samashti sadhana.
Reinstating Dharma effectively means efforts to make the social structure and Nation-building process exemplary. To accomplish this, it is necessary to teach society how to abide by Dharma. For setting up an ideal system of governance, a legal struggle is unavoidable. Do not forget history – It was the comprehensive sacrifice of Arya Chanakya, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj that brought success to their mission of reinstating Dharma.
O’ Hindus dedicated to serving Dharma ! From this Gurupournima itself, prepare to reinstate Dharma, meaning, establish a Hindu Rashtra on the foundation of Dharma and be assured that you will progress spiritually as expected by the Guru Principle !
