SHRI NAGRAJ ANSWERSWhat is human dharma?
The extent to which I live in orderliness today, the finesse with which I live today, I can live better than that tomorrow. In this way, living with ever increasing happiness is human dharma.
What is the essential core of Jeevan Vidya?
Do we humans want to live surrounded by question marks, or do we want to live a resolved life? Clearly, the resolved life is everyone’s preference. Jeevan Vidya or Madhyasth-Darshan has answers to all responsible questions, which have a bearing on meaningful and happy human living. In fact, the word darshan is because one can see or determine the truth. In other words, Jeevan Vidya is human-centred and deterministic in nature.
What do you consider as the ultimate truth?
Truth is existence as a whole – there is no decrease or increase in truth. There is no such thing as first truth or last truth – there is only continuity of truth once it is realised in a human being. Hence, it is with wisdom that a human being understands truth. Understanding co-existence itself is the ultimate truth.
What are the obstacles in realisation of this truth in the world today?
One does not delay for a moment in doing works of excesses and excitement – while one thinks ten times over before doing anything with resolution, rationale, and purposefulness. It’s not that way in childhood though. As one grows into adulthood – one starts doubting one’s helping inclinations, and this helping-inclination reduces in priority. As a result – one procrastinates, and conditions change. These changed conditions reinforce that doubt – and one starts thinking that it’s not possible for anything right to be.
Further, presently – man believes his own needs to be useful, while he doesn’t believe other’s needs to be useful. This is the reason of exploitation among individuals, families, communities, and countries.
What is the solution, then?
How can orderliness be made available to all? How could orderliness be universalised in humankind? Humankind has to become wise for this to happen.
The solution surely is a humane art of living with resolution, prosperity, fearlessness, and coexistence. This is meaningful for everyone as every entity in existence wants to be in orderliness.
In other words, a human being needs to realise humane-conduct in all aspects, angles, directions – for orderliness to be.
What is the meaning of ‘development’ as per Jeevan Vidya?
Humankind’s true development is based on every human being’s realisation of the oneness of the human race and in everyone realising harmony in behaviour or society, through values.
