Swamiji says …

” A mother willingly takes upon herself the herculean task of creating a strong and firm foundation of uprightness, honesty and truthfulness in her child by instilling in him the all important values of respecting others, speaking the truth and being straight- forward. She utilises every moment in highlighting the difference between right and wrong, good and bad, truth and untruth as she is aware that her child not only mirrors her reflection but also reflects her teachings and upbringing and she has to ensure that he becomes a good human being. The child obediently follows his mother’s guidelines and imbibes the values introduced by her and comprehends the vital difference between respect and disregard, honesty and dishonesty and lives happily by simply following his mother’s teachings.”

“All religious and sacred books emphasise on the importance of respecting our elders , our parents and treating them with reverence and respect. Respect their age , their words, their experience and behave with them appropriately. The same child who had been a good , well-behaved child earlier now succumbs to the external pressure of the environment in which he lives… without putting up a fight…and is now , sadly , transforming into a youth who has no qualms in selling his soul to the devil , who can look away from the truth without batting an eyelid and embrace the untruth unblinkingly , who can hurl abuses at others needlessly and uncaringly, who can lie confidently at every opportunity in order to save his skin. Words of falsehood, deceit and deception stream out of his mouth unceasingly. When, how and why did he develop the art of deception and connivance is the root point on which we must deliberate! The same child who used to treat his parents with love, utmost care and respect in the past… has no time for them now … insults them at his will and fancy and treats them with contempt, disdain and lets them know that they are a burden on him. He becomes so uncivilised and unrefined that he speaks to them in a callous manner, unmindful of the distress and pain that he is causing them. The order of the day now is to be impolite, discourteous, arrogant, disrespectful. Is this what had been taught to him by his mother and elders.”

” You meet your friends in order to gain some happiness and know about all that has been happening in their lives…good and the not so good. But instead of doing that, you while away hours speaking ill about some other common friends… dissecting their personal lives, besmirch their name and reputation… and when you later meet those very people…you put up a facade of being their well-wishers and their best friends too. What kind of behaviour is this? You are turning into a devious con artist …Are you or aren’t you ? You were always taught to be transparent and honest in your behaviour with others. What is bringing about this change in you? Could it be due to a total collapse in your value system and disregard for old age customs and beliefs ?”

“Your material possessions are of such great value to you that if another person’s car as much as touches your vehicle, you are blinded by anger to such an extent that you are willing to kill the other person in a moment of mindless rage. Are you any less than a savage when you let such sweeping emotions take control of you ? Were values of this kind ever taught to you by any of your elders ? Does the society in which you live have an effect so detrimental on you that you are becoming more uncivilised day by day? Shouldn’t you be held accountable for deliberately and knowingly turning into an unrecognizable person… completely different from what you were previously.”

” You must try to rein in your emotions before they gain an upper hand on you and turn you into someone you don’t know at all.”

  9. बच्चे की माँ उसकी पहली गुरु होती है।वह अपने बच्चे को सर्वश्रेष्ठ देखना चाहती है। वह हमेशा ही अपने बच्चे में अच्छे गुणों को समाहित करती है। पर देखने में आता है जब बच्चा बड़ा होकर जब बाह्य जगत के सम्पर्क में आता है तो उसका व्यवहार भिन्न हो जाता है। स्वामी जी तो सच्ची माँ स्वरूपा है।उन्होंने सूक्ष्म दृष्टि से यहाँ स्पष्ट किया है कि विनयशीलता और सहनशीलता शिक्षा का एक महत्वपूर्ण भाग है जो व्यक्ति के आचरण में समरसता बनाए रखता है।
    स्वामी जी के चरणों में मैं नमन करता हूँ।

  10. Om gurudevo namaha.swamiji how truely u have said, the fact of life it is seen in today’s world. Looking at the scenario of today we should not forget our values which have been instilled in us by our parents. We should have control over our emotions and have respect for everyone, whoever it may be. We owe a lot to our parents and society as what we are in today’s date is all bcoz of our parents sacrifice and their preachings. We all should value everyone,whether,its our parents, friends, or neighbour’s.Being ur children and one family till date I have realized n learned to be humble n polite to everyone. Thank you Swamiji for showing us the right path n direction to live a life of oneness with the nature and everyone. I will follow all the teachings n preachings told by you so I can live a life of morals, values and being a good human n set an example in the society .

  12. Such a soul stirring message!!!..A true eye opener..🙏🙏🙏 Thank you again Swamiji for your guidance and support..

    1. Swamiji has clearly enumerated the order of the day. It clearly emphasises the need for a regular and consistent spiritual sadhana to overcome these inherent traits in us.
      May Swamiji shower his blessings on all of us towards attaining this important goal.

  13. “As you sow, so shall you reap!”
    We must ensure that our kids respect their parents and elders.
    Parents are a form of God. They keep kid’s happiness and needs above their own. It is kids’ moral responsibility to respect them. To respect parents is the best way of showing gratitude. They are the only ones who love you always and unconditionally. From the day you came to this world till this day, they are the ones who have bought you up and made you what you are today.
    Life is soo beautiful and a great experience. You must thank your parents for this lovely life and give them a lot of respect. Respect them for your own sake.
    Swamiji always taught us the great values of life…to respect elders, honest behaviour, righteousness and controlling emotions etc.. It is our duty to follow them strictly.
    Om Swami Ajay Gurudevaya namaha.

  14. In a world where children are “growing up digital with no territorial boundaries”, it is important that we retain our core values of mutual respect, tolerance and community living.

    Is materialism and self- centricity a universal snag? Are there ways where we can still remain oblivious to external societal fracases? Can we still retain our Indian tenets in this fast changing milieu?

    Only Swamiji can enlighten us on this. Thank you Swamiji for your counseling and guidance.

  15. Very true. At times, we go out of control and misbehave with seniors and elders. We don’t realize that point in time how badly they get hurt. Their silence is perceived as our victory and they seem helpless. We should not forget the cascading effect this has on all other family members especially children who observe, notice and follow our actions – good or bad. Would you like your children treat you like this? Perhaps No.

    Remember, “shadow of a leader” concept in a corporate world. This is so true in our home front as well. So we should hold our emotions, stay calm and cool and respect all.

    Thanks a bunch Swamijee for enlightening us and sharing pearls of wisdom.
    Regards Puneet
