ताकि हम आज़ाद भारत में साँस ले सकें!

प्रत्येक वर्ष 15 अगस्त को, हम भारतीय पूरे जोश व उल्लास से स्वतंत्रता दिवस मनाते है। यही वह तारीख है, जब सन् 1947 में अंग्रेज़ी हुकूमत से हम सभी को आज़ादी मिली थी। इतिहास की एक ऐसी उज्ज्वल सुबह, जब भारतीय स्वतंत्रता सेनानियों की कड़ी तपस्या रंग लाई थी। तब हर भारतीय के होठों पर गुंजायमान था, सिर्फ एक ही तराना- ' अब हम आज़ाद हैं!' पर हाँ, यह युग सत्य है कि इस आज़ादी को पाना आसान न था। इसके लिए स्वतंत्रता सेनानियों को शूलों से भरे लम्बे रास्तों पर नंगे पाँव चलना पड़ा था। बेइंतहां ज़ुल्म और पीड़ा के दरिया को पूरी दिलेरी से पार करना पड़ा था। इस स्वतंत्रता के महासंग्राम में कई दिल दहला देने वाली…

Bhagavad Gita and the Indian Freedom Struggle

Many of our outstanding freedom fighters took the spark and simulation from the Bhagavad Gita- a universally accepted book of wisdom. Innumerable of them took the noose smilingly holding the Gita in their hands. In 1905, the Swadeshi Movement started in Bengal, where 50,000 people, each holding the Gita in their hands, took to the streets vowing to bycott the British goods and force the British out of India. Following are personal accounts of the life stories of various freedom fighters who were motivated by the Gita: ... The Gita- a spiritual dictionary!... The mere mention of the name of Mahatma Gandhi invokes the image of a great patriot, who revolutionised the Indian freedom struggle through the matchless weapons of non-violence and Satyagraha. Verily, for this great personality as well, the source of grit and stout-heartedness was the Gita. He writes, "I find a solace in the Bhagavad Gita that I miss even in the Sermon on the Mount. When disappointment stares me in the face and all alone I see not one ray of light, I go back to the Bhagavad Gita. I find a verse here and a verse there, and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming tragedies... my life has been full of external tragedies; and if they have left no visible or indelible scar on me, I owe it all to the teaching of the Bhagavad Gita." ... For someone, Gita inspires to be a visionary, a fighter... for someone karmayogi, for someone- a scholarly treasure house, …

The Equation of Dhyana

"Give me the place to stand, and I shall move the earth."- Archimedes, the Greek mathematician, philosopher, scientist, and engineer, said the several years ago. If we try to understand this statement from a surficial perspective, we will certainly land ourselves in confusion.... Archimedes was hinting at such a focal point only. He knew that by discovering that focal point only. He knew that by discovering that focal point, it is possible to control the whole creation. Undoubtedly, his search was up to the mark; but, unfortunately, the direction in which he was conducting the search was wrong. Archimedes continued to lookout for 'that focal point' in the external world of objects and therefore he was unsuccessful in achieving his objective. Similar is the story of man in the present times. Confusion, hurly-burly, and panic are the hallmarks of modern life! Tussle and competition at every step! Every segment of life is aghast with brisk movements! Actions- fast and speedy! Body- each and every molecule surcharged with motion! Mind- pressurized with the whirlpool of thoughts without intermission! Chitta (the psyche)- troubled with the labyrinth of sanskaras!... ... To come out of this uneasiness and instability, there is but one option. It is to discover that stand point and know the art of getting established in it. In this regard, our sacred Scriptures promulgate that the art/method to live a stable life is 'Dhyana.'...  It is not that …
