Ramnavami - Chaitra Shukla Paksha 9 (8th April 2014)

                                                     'Ramrajya' was ideal
     Ramrajya of the Ideal King Shriram is remembered by people even after lakhs of years. As against this, since unrighteous Democracy has failed in all respects, immorality, corruption and anarchy are rampant. Why was Ramrajya ideal in all respects will be clear from the points given ahead.

For Real Democracy : Let your vote be valuable !

    Rule of the Congress Party and its alliance partners under UPA-1 and UPA-2, lasting 10 full years, 2004 to 2014, has to be reviewed by the people of Bharat. The mood at the end of the UPA-1 is being compared with the mood now at end of the second innings by UPA-2.

Like ‘Sanatan Prabhat’, become a warrior for Dharma !

      For an ideal Nation, meaning, for the reinstatement of Dharma (Righteousness), a revolution based on the principles of Dharma is essential. Hence, right from the beginning ‘Sanatan Prabhat’ has accepted such a path of revolution.

Importance of electing people who perform spiritual practice under the guidance of Saints

1. As soon as elections are declared, political parties canvass through the mediums of wall-posters, handbills, badges, large hoardings, painting walls, corner and public meetings, door to door campaigns etc.
     On the other hand, devotees gather spontaneously and in large numbers to devotedly and enthusiastically listen to the spiritual guidance that Saints provide. Political parties have to campaign to get an audience; whereas, Saints do not have to do anything like this !

It is shameful that politicians have to beg for votes

     The fact that politicians have to beg for votes proves that they have not done anything for the people despite being in politics for so many years. If they had done something, people would have voted for them of their own accord. - Dr. Athavale (3.3.2014)

Wicked candidates aplenty in elections; who to elect ?

     Democracy over the last 66 years after Independence has caused great harm to the society, Nation and Dharma. It is ironical that the prevalent election process has failed to throw up a single ruler who could achieve upliftment of the society, Nation and Dharma. This is the dismal but true reality.
     People elect representatives believing that ‘nothing is really achieved through elections; let us elect the lesser devils’. How can such representatives bring about comprehensive progress of the country?

Corruption widespread in India, says US report

Bloody history of Congress in communal riots in Gujarat

Those who accuse Mr. Modi should not forget this
      Congress has been targeting Mr. Narendra Modi over the past 12 years about the Gujarat riots that took place when he was the Chief Minister. Congress ruled Gujarat from 1969 to 1992. If they look at the number of communal riots in this period, the Congressmen will at least learn how bloody their rule has been. The statistics of communal riots during Congress rule are given ahead.

 the interest of the Nation and Dharma from time to time 
H.H.Dr. Athavale
'Goals of politicians and of seekers'
     Favouritism to specific castes, corruption, hooliganism, doing whatever it takes for getting elected are some goals of politicians; whereas Moksha (Final Liberation) through individual spiritual practice and establishing the ‘Divine Kingdom’ through collective spiritual practice are the goals of seekers !

What are the subtle-effects on seekers when they take regular autosuggestions

H.H. Yoya Vallee
    If the process of personality defects and ego removal is implemented with the intention of becoming one with God, that is, imbibing Divine qualities, the covering of distressing energies that has developed around the seeker (due to his personality defects and ego) reduces. Similarly, when the process is implemented honestly and autosuggestions taken appropriately, the Guru bestows His grace on the seeker. This leads to reduction in his personality defects and ego and 30% of his personality defects and ego come down to 15%.
