Bhikshu Dharm -Relevance?

Buddha.jpgThe very requisite commandment at the initial level to join Buddhism is to adopt Bhikshu Dharm to practice it where the aspirant takes a pledge to be a Bhikshu for his sustenance solely depending on Bhiksha (alms) going door to door for the purpose. The other rituals follow thereafter. Lord Buddha himself underwent through the process.The followers of Mahabir Swami too follow this ofcourse with different  modus operandi in different places.The major difference is that in Buddhism alms process is initiated by the follower concerned himself whereas in Mahabir Swami’s creed the bhaktas (devotees) organise a dinner inviting some Guru (preacher) to taste it and whomsoever is extended this favour he is granted membership to join the clan as a Bhikshu –the number could be anywhere from zero to 100 at a time or even more. Whichever food is okayed by the Guru is admitted into the fold as a Bhikshu. The practice is prospering well in both the clans for thousands of the years. The world has changed a lot and so are the religions but the question is whether or not this would continue further sticking to dogmas like this.Wish the pursuers all the best.

 


 

On population growth?

Image result for population growthIndia is confronted with the unruly  populatioan, say population growth, and there is hardly any one to bother the least including political heavy weights and the reason is once bitten twice shy. During Emergency this was top agenda of Sanjai Gandhi and it cost Indira Gandhi, the then Prime Minister of the country, her government. It was virtually once bitten twice shy and the till then   a great furore got silenced. None was bold enough to take cudgels against the public and the issue got fully gorbaged. Infact none had guts to bell the cat since then. There are murmers that some selected individuals are there who tried to raise their voice but they were silenced by the power blocks. True, moves are there on developmental programmes and progress of the country but gains on that count only get submerged leaving nothing for the people.The need of the hour  is to enable a plug that is capable of arresting population growth failing which all pro development and reconstruction activities would have to get doomed.

What is it they owe to the people?

They are Members of Parliament representing the people of the Country with a mandate to serve them adequately and honestly in all the  matters of welfare for a tenure of five years normally. It’s different matter that with the exception of a limited few the rest always are deeply prone to foster their own personal interests say their rise of salary at par with top beaurocrats on which count they raised all hue and cries on the floor of Parliament. They ultimately got it obviously at the cost of the public exchequer. As a result several other important sectors like Banking were ignored which trend still continues unabated. Initially there was nothing like a fixed salary but an allowance of Rs.2,500/ and that too was an optional feature differing from an MP to MP.

Government sponsored festivities on next Holi:

Yes, as announced by the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Adity Nath Yogi, the next Holi has to be celebrated at a grand scale at Mathura/ Brindaban sponsored by the Government of Uttar Pradesh. There are already murmurs in different quarters for and against the move and the possibilities of  a repeat what is happening in Rajasthan can’t be ruled out. Leaders  of different political parties are greesing their palms against one another.


 

Culture abuse stands hyperbolised:

.Image result for cheerleadersIndia’s cultural image has been having a top rank reputation all over the world with the slogan “Yastu nariyastu poojyantey ramante tatra devta” (angels live where ladies are worshipped) and their status in the society attained much bigger a status and necessary campaign on this front brought glory with recognition sky high.Thanks to people like Raja Ram Mohan Roy, Swami Vibekanand and several others who were the great pioneers on this count leading to tremendous upliftment of the women with capability to elicit respect and dignity in the society. Now that today’s status extended to the women folks warrant a hault as heading beyound this may just lead to big social disorder creating a chaos proportionate between males and females. Heading onwards beyond society girls culture is always like distorting and diminish their grace. Frailty thy name is Woman is what Shakespear quoted and dignity and honour attained is to be retained without hyperbolising the same.
