3. End Justifies Means (11th January 2011)
“While we are under no obligation to fulfill his [Swami Dayanand Saraswati] request….” (http://www.indiaabroad-digital.com/indiaabroad/20110114?pg=10#pg10) is the latest press release from HAF.
First it was the Hindu Sastras, followed by the Ramayana, and now the Acharyas. It seems that in the name of advocacy, the age old Hindu tradition of Acharya Devo Bhava has lost its sanctity and meaning.
Kaama maya evayam purusha iti
Sa Yatha kaamo bhavati tat kratur bhavati
Yat kratur bhavati tat karma kurute
Yat karma kurte tad abhisam padyate
‘Whatever is your deepest desire will decide the nature of your determination, of the way to act. As the desire is, so the will is; as the will is, so is the action. And as is the action, so is the consequence, or the result thereof.‘ 4.4.5 The Brhadaranyaka Upanishad, by Swami Krishnananda, The Divine Life Society, Sivananda Ashram, Rishikesh, India. (page 327-328)
