The Vedic Message, Gandhi and Marx

Dr.Vijaya Rajiva (Haindava Keralam, 26/01/2010)

In his recent speech (28 Oct.2009) at the book launch of Shri Tarun Vijay's India Battles On, Shri Mohan Bhagawat, made an important observation. Speaking about India's march towards national unity, prosperity and well being, he observed that many Indians are moving towards the same goal.

This is indeed true. Just recently the Vishwa Mangal Gou Yatra which started in October 2009 and ended in January 2010 is a wonderful all India movement that reminds one of the great Satyagraha campaigns undertaken by Gandhiji during the freedom struggle. Some 19,000 plus kilometres were covered as the Yatris travelled from village to village preaching the Vedic message of the inter relatedness of all beings.

Sarve Sukhinah Bhavantu (May all beings be happy).

Save the cow, save India's villages, save the farmers, save the soil of Bhumi Devi, conserve and spread the ancient knowledge of Indian medicine(Ayurveda) and Yoga.Add to that the Sangh Parivar's exemplary work on behalf of the tribals and the Dalits and their diligent work in eradicating Untouchability and the injustices of caste oppression.

This is the most modern message that any contemporary Indian can hear. And yet it is also the most ancient Vedic message.

Sants,sages, acharyas, everyday Hindus, Sangh workers, leaders, all in the Yatra were received with enthusiasm by large crowds. This is a testimony to the strength and durability of Hinduism. This is Gandhism with the added bonus of the wisdom of ancient India's saints and sages and its present day practitioners.

The program of the Yatra is simply astounding : village reconstruction, organic farming, agro based industries, care of the poor and needy, a worshipful attitude to the planet and to all living beings.

This is a program that the Mahatma would endorse. India lives in its villages he had said.

Marxist comrades in India should see what is obvious to any independent observer. Hinduism, despite the many ups and downs during the long night of the Muslim and British Occupations, can never be defeated.If our Marxist comrades could grasp this basic fact, they would cooperate with Hindus (among other well wishers) to effect socio economic change and bring abut national unity, well being and prosperity to Bharat.

Why are they unable/unwilling to change track ? Why have they been caught in a time warp ?
