Corporate VP-turned-spiritual guru, MOHANJI, says a true Hindu will never argue or be aggressive
Hinduism is a state. ‘Ha’ represents the sun. ‘Indu’ represents the moon. They are the two key meridians which create balance in our system. These ida and pingala nadis or meridians are what balances the heat and cold aspects of our system.
If the sun and moon are balanced, which means if the heat and cold are in equilibrium, the person is healthy. One full day means day time and night time. If we dissect it roughly, 3 am to 6 am is the sattvic time which is represented by our middle meridian called sushumna. The moon represents tamas or inertia and partial darkness or sleep and rules over 3 pm to 3 am — almost 12 hours which is represented by the moon meridian.
The rest of the day, represented by the sun — 6 am to 3 pm — is action or rajasic time. This is the time for 100 per cent ‘terrestriality’ or the up and down swings of a ‘caged’ existence. Earth can be considered a cage or prison because our choices are limited to our available awareness and restricted, elemental boundaries such as body, space, time, air, heat, water and earth. So, when we address one as a Hindu, it only means that the person is expected to be in perfect equilibrium. This is also the responsibility each ‘Hindu’ carries — the constant display of perfect objectivity and equanimity, also, perfection in tolerance and deliverance of nonviolence at all times.
A true Hindu should solve differences through discussions which maintain inner peace and never through arguments, aggression and violence or anything that destroys peace.
This means, Hinduism is a mental state and not a religion. Anyone can be a Hindu if their operating level matches the state of perfect peace and nonviolence within. It signifies that when the elements are in balance, the emotions and the operations in the world are also in balance. There are no excesses in the system. There are no imbalances. Hence, when we say Hindu, it means, we expect the person to be in balance, equanimity, peace and love.
When there is imbalance in the system, there is negativity, which means anger, hatred, and violence. When the elements are in balance, then the expression is love, kindness, and compassion. So, become all that and you will become a Hindu. There are numerous constitutions and characters on earth. Each being is a unique constitution.
One who is predominantly sattvic — operating from selflessness, love and kindness, one who has less selfish desires is expressing the qualities of Brahmn — gets close to the Supreme Consciousness. The nature of supreme consciousness is unconditional love. One who is aggressive and warrior-like is usually classified as Kshatriya, the warrior or ruler class who possess the ability to protect all other beings.
Another type of people who possess skills of trade are called Vaishya. Those who are hunters and are used to working close to earth were classified as Shudras.
None of these classifications are superior or inferior to one another. They just signify the orientation of the individual. This is how classes originally happened. Then, they became castes. Then it paved the way to intolerance, apartheid and untouchability to reservations and corruption.
I believe that nothing is a birthright or an ornament. We should be humans, first and foremost. Then comes caste and religion. Caste and religion are totally insignificant if people be good and do good, especially if they express godliness and kindness consistently and unconditionally. Only their individual constitution or orientation makes the person.
Nothing is high or low. Ignorance has degenerated operating methods. This is visible in classes and castes, too. Racism and castism are blatant expressions of total ignorance.
