REAL FREEDOM

India won freedom from foreign rule on 15 August 1947. Gandhi Ji had thought ideal conditions of Ram Rajya would prevail thereafter.What we witness to-day, is just the opposite. Crime, violence, exploitation,unrest, differences based on language and religion etc., have grown.Gandhi Ji’s dream of Ram Rajya has become more distant.
There is another kind of slavery from which not only India but the entire world is suffering, that, in fact, is the root cause of disharmony and Peacelessness. Humankind to-day is in the grip of the five vices of lust, anger, greed, attachment and ego. Because of the bondage of vices, despite the best of intentions and efforts,the result is always against the expectations of people everyone desires to be liberated from these vices.This will happen when humanity will shed body-consciousness and realize we are eternal souls who were pure originally. ‘By establishing the mind in constant loveful remembrance of the Supreme Soul God Shiva, the purifier and liberator, human souls can conquer the vices and attain, ‘Swa-rajya’ i.e. rule over the self. When this is achieved, then alone Gandhi Ji’s dream of Ram Rajya on earth will become a reality.
