Universal brotherhood is the goal of spiritualism. Whereas
religions divide, spiritualism unites. Yogic society can be
the most enlightened society where individuals get recognition
as individuals and not as belonging to this or that group.
Human society would prosper when all the religions are
dismissed. Religions are based on emotions and emotionals are
unstable and provocative. They are bereft of rationality. In
ancient societies, such monsters were not found. Blessed they
were. Cursed we are.
Whether God is there or not that is one thing. Talk on God is
bad indeed. It is futile and meaningless. Instead, the need is
to care for one\92s daily activities and duties, rights and
Yoga is the heritage of mankind, originally bequeathed by
divine powers as a biotechnique, to benefit individuals
immensely. Man has to evolve systematically from the given raw
state to the state of enlightenment. It is not wise to
identify yoga with India. Yoga works silently in man, in any
man anywhere on earth. It is given without opening the mouth,
and it is done without opening the mouth either. In fact, yoga
works in silence and culminates in greater silence. The
reality is received in the silence and reached in the silence.
In fact, brahman is silence.
10. Life\92s journey with yoga, from here to eternity, is long
and arduous. It is likened to walking on a double\96edged sword.
Since the reward guaranteed is great, say, greatest, it being
simply godhood, enduring all the hardship is well worth the
effort. Man is not created just to sin, suffer and die. Is not
man, only the man, endowed with varieties of mental faculties,
such as manas, buddhi, pragna, chit and ahamkaara? Man is a
thinking animal. Power of thinking is given so that he can
lead a life full of logic and reason.
11. Science and yoga-vidyaa are not antagonistic with each
other. Their area of investigation and the method employed are
different. As already noted elsewhere, science tends to
investigate the material phenomena taking place outside the
man, while yoga-vidyaa investigates the self by looking
within. Yoga triggers implosion within the body. Many subtle
and psychic phenomena lies outside the purview of physical
sciences. The reality lies hidden within each individual and
it is only the yoga-vidyaa that reaches up to reality. In fact
the creator is a Yogi, meaning that the creation is the work
of a Yogi.
