No religion or Ideology has any formula or secret key to live in Happiness and Enjoy Pleasures of Life and Living in Happiness .Islam, Christianity, Capitalism and Communism make life miserable without Happiness and Enjoying Pleasures either for Heaven or Paradise after death or the New Earth and Heaven, after class war. Islam, Christianity, Capitalism and Communism have a history of 2000 years or less.

The Ancient Wisdom is the Key for Happiness and Pleasures.

The Wisdom of Ancient India helps us find out the Secret Formula to solve this problem. It provides answers for most of the complex problems faced by the Modern Man or World, including Religions and Nations. This presentation helps to develop a clear understanding of the Ancient Indian Wisdom and thereby finding out Solutions for most of the present day problems of Peace and Prosperity.

Transcript of " LIVE IN HAPPINESS AND ENJOY PLEASURES- THE ANCIENT FORMULA "

  1. 1. SECRETS OF HAPPINESS AND ENJOYING PLEASURES OF LIFE :THE INDIAN WAY DR. RAJU M. MATHEW
  2. 2. FAILED FORMULAS FOR HAPPINESS <ul><li>Humanity from the very beginning has been in the process of making formulas for Happiness and Enjoying all the Pleasures of life. Almost all religions have been prescribing their own formula for happiness besides philosophers, psychologists, medical professionals, motivators and ‘god men’ or ‘god women’. But nobody is happy and the world is filled with ‘greed’, ‘unhappiness’, ‘‘frustrations’ , killing instincts and suicide mania. Even the religious men or leaders too are not free from them. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  3. 3. SEARCHING THE SECRETS OF HAPPINESS <ul><li>Modern religions, philosophy, science and technology have become a total failure in prescribing the formulas for Happiness and Pleasures of Life, though they claim otherwise. This has made to make elaborate search for the secrets of Happiness in the ancient civilizations and the way of life, especially of India. </li></ul><ul><li>The Indians, even before the birth of Sanskrit, the Vedas and Upanishads and Brahmanism or the Modern Hinduism, had developed a very unique and holistic way of life so as to enjoy all the Pleasures of Life and attain Inner Happiness or Spiritual Bliss. </li></ul><ul><li>It is based on a higher level of integration of the Material or Physical World with the Spiritual and Intellectual or Aesthetic World in which both Islam and Christianity do not have to offer much. However, they can learn a lot from India in the art of higher levels of integration, though the modern world is not fully aware of it, including the Hindus. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  4. 4. INTEGRATION OF THE WORLDLY PLEASURES AND SPIRITUAL HAPPINESS <ul><li>Every man or woman is the totality of the ever demanding physical body, pleasure seeking mind, exploring intellect and joyous soul. Unless the body, mind, soul and intellect are integrated and a their needs are met, keeping a proper balance, nobody can lead a joyous, happy and pleasurable life on earth, what ever may be his or her faith or religion. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  5. 5. RELIGIONS, CAPTALISM AND COMMUNISM <ul><li>In spite of the existence of Islam, Christianity, Hinduism and Capitalism or Communism and the growth of science and technology, humanity has not yet attained a harmonious integration of the body, mind, soul and intellect and their joy or pleasures. Everybody, including religious head and ‘god man or woman’, is unhappy for the mounting greed, desires or passions and dissatisfactions. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  6. 6. HUMANITY AND HUMAN VALUES <ul><li>In spite of the ego and selfishness, there is an urge in everybody to be a part of the humanity as a whole and to follow the basic human values for the very existence of humanity. However, the primitive tribal men declared themselves as ‘ the only chosen people of their God ’ and all the others as ‘ their enemies ’ or ‘ the enemies of the God ’ who could be exterminated. They had made ‘ the Warriors of the God ’ and even ‘ the Martyrs of God ’ with special status. </li></ul><ul><li>Such primitive instincts and beliefs have been incorporated in all religions, especially the Semitic religions such as Islam, Judaism and Christianity. Though Jesus Christ had adopted the principle of universal brotherhood by making everybody to address the God , ‘ Our Heavenly Father ’ and asking everybody to love the enemies and forgive them , unlike Moses or Mohammad, Christianity is not free from the deadly ideology of Moses and the Old Testament that form the basis of Fascism and Terrorism. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  7. 7. NOT A RELIGION, BUT A WAY AND PHILOSPHY OF LIFE <ul><li>Sanadhana Dharma is not a dogma or religion, but a way of life and a philosophy of life emanated even before the birth of Sanskrit Language. It cannot not be limited within boundaries of the present Hinduism or Hindu symbols, temples, mantras, the Vedic or the Trinity Gods or their incarnations, including their wives and children. </li></ul><ul><li>In the course of time, epics and epic gods had started to dominate over ‘Sanadhana Dharma’ and even the Vedic Gods. Hinduism had evolved as a religion dominated by the Brahmins with Sanskrit and priesthood that lead to the division of the society into the four water tight compartments, facilitating the invasion of several foreign powers to India in the course of time. But Sanadhana Dharma still lives in the mind of millions of Indians. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  8. 8. SPIRITUAL AND INTELELCUAL BASES <ul><li>Sanadhana Dharma is a way of life with a set of eternal values helping realize the God or the Brahman , the Nature and the Self. Brahman has nothing to do with Brahmins or the Trinity God, Brahma . Sanadhana Dharma is a guideline for a happy, peaceful and joyous life; a life without fear, tension, worries and stress by the realization of the Supreme Self. </li></ul><ul><li>Sanadhana Dharma is a philosophy of integration at different levels and dimensions so as to become the whole or the one with the Brahman. Its spiritual or intellectual bases are unique and marvelous compared to any religion or ideology. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  9. 9. THE OMINI-PRESENT GOD AND THE SUREME POWER <ul><li>Brahman is the only omnipotent and omnipresent God who created every thing in order and assigned them specific roles and duties. Brahman is free from physical form and human emotions. He created not one but fourteen universes in the shapes of big eggs or anda-kadahams. </li></ul><ul><li>Brahman does not need any ‘warriors’ or ‘suicide bombers’ to fight for Him or take revenge upon anybody and He has no enemies or the unfaithful, nor does he act as the ‘Supreme Commander’ to fight with anybody, unlike the Semitic Gods. By yoga and meditation a sage-like man can realize or experience the Brahman and know every thing by revelations. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  10. 10. NO MEADTOR <ul><li>Each and every one is expected to realize the Brahman by oneself. As such Brahman does not need mediators or prophets to wander in the desert, unlike the Semitic Gods. Prophets were meant for a power crazy king or emperor- like God who wanted to dictate the people. </li></ul><ul><li>However, the great sages or teachers could help people find out the ways of realizing Him. That is why; even the Jesus Christ had told that the “age of the prophets was over” and he had never claimed that he was a ‘prophet’ but ‘The Teacher or the Master’. </li></ul><ul><li>Sanadhana Dharma is a set of eternal principles of life. The universe, originated from a micro organism (paramanu), is in flux. Every thing in the universe, including human beings and the Nature, is subjected to constant changes. Any thing, that is not eternal and absolute, is maya or illusion. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  11. 11. MULTI-DIMENSIONAL INTEGRATIONS <ul><li>Sanadhana Dharma is a way of life integrating every thing with each other; the integration of one’s own Body, Mind and Soul is the basis of a happy and healthy life. </li></ul><ul><li>Integrations must also be there between Man and the Woman; the Man and the Nature; the Man and the Society and the Man and the Cosmic to lead a full and meaningful life. </li></ul><ul><li>Different dimensions of life, such as Artha (wealth), Kama (passions) and Moksha (salvation) have been integrated with Dharma for Joy or Bliss. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  12. 12. HOLISTIC <ul><li>Sanadhana Dharma is basically holistic and is more than a religion . It integrates spirituality with materialism and all the pleasures of life. It also integrates life on earth with life after death as a logical continuity of karma or one’s own deeds. </li></ul><ul><li>Everybody has to perform a set of duties or karmas (not on the basis of caste, but competency) so as to attain higher levels of integrations and realizations and to grow from a narrow self to the universal self. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  13. 13. THE NOBLEST DEED <ul><li>According to the Sanadhana Dharma the noblest deed is to live, work and die for the well-being of others. It prescribes a life without fear and selfishness. Giving, and not taking, is the highest deed of life. </li></ul><ul><li>It advocates love, peace, mercy and non-violence . It adheres to a life without hate, revenge and violence that are nothing but mere the manifestations of fear, whereas love, peace and non-violence emanate from the inner strength and fearlessness. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  14. 14. NOT FEAR; BUT LOVE <ul><li>All Religions are founded on fear – the fear of God, the fear of life and passions, the fear of death, the fear of sin and the fear of hell or punishment or denial of the Paradise. </li></ul><ul><li>Every religion advocates that only its own strict followers are the chosen people and the others are their enemies or the enemies of their God and meant for the Hell. </li></ul><ul><li>But Sanadhana Dharma is founded not on fear but on conquering fear with universal love and brotherhood and greater awareness and higher levels of integrations so as to realize or attain the Brahman, the Supreme God. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  15. 15. UNIVERSAL BROTHERHOOD <ul><li>Sanathana Dharma advocates universal brotherhood, treating every body as a member of the one and the same family – vasudeva kudubam and universal happiness not only for one’s own sect but also for all the human beings and all creatures of this universe and also of all the fourteen universes –loko samsatha sughino bhavanthu and the ultimate realization of the self as the embodiment of God – aham brahmasmi and realization of God -- thathawamasi . </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  16. 16. DEEDS AND WISDOM <ul><li>The awareness and realization of the Nature accompanied by a set of deeds for fulfilling the material and sensual pleasures result in the growth of science and technology. But they are neither holistic nor eternal. The realization of the Self and ultimately of Brahman leads to the conquering of fear and ignorance and attaining of the holistic and eternal higher knowledge and wisdom. Hence, one who realizes the Brahman knows every thing and the whole. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  17. 17. THE FOUR DIMENSIONS OF LIFE <ul><li>1. Dharma – a set of eternal values and principles on the basis of which the universe is designed and set to work; we have to observe them in every deed. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Artha – all forms of physical and material wealth which are essential for survival and fulfilling material, sensual and aesthetic pleasures of life; </li></ul><ul><li>3. Kama –Material, Sensual and Aesthetic desires or passions and pleasures or enjoyment; </li></ul><ul><li>4. Moksha –The Absolute Liberation from the worldly desires, pleasures and bondages ; a state of absolute joy and bliss in realizing the Brahman and in union with Him. Moksha is no way similar to the ‘Paradise’ of the Semitic religions with worldly pleasures. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  18. 18. DHARMA <ul><li>Man is born to live and also enjoy the material world and the sensual and aesthetic pleasures by keeping oneself in bliss and happiness and ultimately realizing the Brahman and attaining Moksha. </li></ul><ul><li>For achieving these goals and objectives and also to live a life without tension and worries, one should observe a set of eternal values and principles or Dharma. Nobody is free from the results of one’s deed or Karma. Observing Dharma, one makes every deed noble and rewarding. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  19. 19. THE BHAGAVATH GEETHA <ul><li>Though the Bhagavath Geetha forms part of the epic Mahabharata, it is a basic manual for fulfilling one’s own duties or karma selflessly, observing dharma and attaining higher levels of knowledge by realizing the Brahman or the Supreme Self. </li></ul><ul><li>The Bhagavath Geetha is bold enough to state that those who seek only the Trinity God or any one of the Trinity Gods shall not realize the Brahman and attain the Moksha, though they may gain some worldly or material rewards and pleasures. Even the incarnations of the Trinity God Vishnu like Ram and Krishna were not free from the bondage of Karma and they had to pay heavily and met with tragic ends for the violation of the Dharma . </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  20. 20. THE MAHABHARATHA: A GREAT AND COMPLEX INDIAN EPIC <ul><li>Mahabharata is an highly complex and multi-dimensional representations of war and clash between the two opposing forces consisting of hundreds of unique individuals or personalities. It pictures the horror and futility of war. </li></ul><ul><li>At one dimension, it is a clash between the members of the one and the same family that ultimately results in the total destruction without any winners. </li></ul><ul><li>And at another dimension, it is a clash or war that takes place within the mind of one and the same person who is an embodiment of thousands of personality traits or characteristics, represented by each and every characters of Mahabharata which incorporates hundreds of stories and beautiful narrations. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  21. 21. RAMAYANA : THE OTHER INDIAN EPIC <ul><li>The Ramayana is a an elaborate narration of a series of wars between the fair skinned Semitic invaders and the black skinned Dravidian settlers of the Indus Valley. The black skinned men were forced to move to the southern part of India. </li></ul><ul><li>The invaders with their superior military strategy and sophisticated technology, including horses, chariots and bows and arrows made a victory over the local people. And finally the hero of the victors committed suicide for the crimes that he had done to the peace loving and highly civilized people . </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  22. 22. ARTHA <ul><li>Sanadhana Dharma is not a denial of or escapism from the material world and the material pleasures. In order to enjoy them one should earn or make and manage wealth or Artha in accordance with the principles of Dharma. </li></ul><ul><li>Making and managing the material wealth for our well-being result in the emergence and development of all types of scientific knowledge and technology. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  23. 23. KAMA AND KAMASUTRA <ul><li>Sanathana Dharma is not a denial of or escapism from the sensual and aesthetic pleasures of life or Kama. In order to enjoy them without any tension and worries, Dharma shall be the guiding principle. The sensual pleasures could be enjoyed by attaining mastery in man and woman relationships for which a manual, known as Kamasutra was written, that too by an ascetic, Valsayana. Kamasutra and also the basic texts in Tantric sex are manuals on the complex man-woman relationship for enjoying the sensual pleasures to the fullest extent. </li></ul><ul><li>Sexual relationships between man and woman have several dimensions over and above physical intimacy; a unity with the Nature ; a unity with the Cosmic; a unity with the spirit of man and woman so that they can realize their own self also. Then it become a matter of beauty and lasting love and joy; life becomes beautiful by enjoying things of beauty and the expressions of aesthetic values .They are symbolized in nine rasas or behaviors of man or woman. It becomes an art that demands mastery. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  24. 24. AYURVEDA <ul><li>Ayurveda is one of the oldest scientific and holistic systems of medicine with more than 3000 years of tradition, developed in India. It is still very popular in India, especially Kerala, It is built upon the principle that the well being of a man is the determined by the level of the integration of his body, mind and soul. </li></ul><ul><li>His body wants to integrate with the Nature; his mind with the universal mind and his soul with the Cosmic. His life is determined by the Nature; the body is constituted by the five elements and the mind is shaped by the five senses. </li></ul><ul><li>Ayurveda is a means to ensure the well being by a combined applications of a package of diagnosing, treatment and administration of medicine mainly based on herbals and minerals and well identified life style, including food habits and exercises and a set of beliefs and practices. Different means, including massages, are employed to eliminate poisonous substances from the body or mind or even soul. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  25. 25. THE FIVE ELEMENTS OF THE BODY <ul><li>One is in perfectly healthy when all the five elements or pancha booths of the body are in perfect integration as are of the perfect integration of the body, the mind and the soul. The five elements are: the earth, the sky, the air, the water and the fire. </li></ul><ul><li>Any disintegration at lower stage makes one weak and sick and the higher stage results in death. Ayurveda, an holistic system of medicine had been emerged for the well-being of the body, mind and soul and the total human being. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  26. 26. FIVE SENSES <ul><li>Pancha-inthriyam or the five sense organs help the mind grow. But only with the five senses, nobody can realize the Brahman who has no end or beginning nor any physical qualities. </li></ul><ul><li>The level of the discipline of the body, mind and soul and the level of their integration determine the nature of the realization of the Brahman. Such a realization leads to the flow of energy from the Nature and Brahman to the body, mind and soul so that one gets revitalized. </li></ul><ul><li>After creating the Universe with certain order, the Brahman does not disturb the set order or the balance of the universe or its working, including the kala-chakra or the wheel of time. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  27. 27. MOKSHA AND PARADISE <ul><li>The ultimate goal of a man or woman is to realize the Brahman and attain unity with Him – the Moksha. Such realizations help in attaining higher knowledge or wisdom and developing spiritual, artistic or intellectual powers. Without observing the Dharma and performing Karma nobody can attain Moksha. Moksha is a state of mind and spiritual experience of attaining the Brahman and not a place or universe or Paradise to go after death. </li></ul><ul><li>The Brahman is the One, the Sole and the Absolute and He is every where and not confined to a particular place. Everybody is free to realize and attain Him in his or her own unique way which varies from person to person. With mere massive drill or practices or time bound prayers or praising or pilgrimage nobody can attain the Brahman or please Him without observing the Dharma and performing the Karma. </li></ul><ul><li>The Semitic religions project the Heaven or Paradise as a universe or place with all material pleasures and the Hell with all material pains, to go after death on the basis of virtues or sins; their God has the attribute some of the characteristics of a cruel and angry king or emperor towards his salves and their God can be pleased with prayers, praising, pilgrimage , human or animal sacrifices so as to get favors or even Paradise. </li></ul>01/12/12 e Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  28. 28. YOGA AND TANTRIC <ul><li>To realize the Nature, the Humanity and the Brahman, one has to reach higher levels of self realization. Yoga and Tantric have emerged as a means for the higher levels of self realization by attaining greater integration of one’s own body, mind and soul and ultimately with the Nature, the Humanity and the Brahman. There are diverse means for attaining them. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  29. 29. THE POWER OF THE SELF <ul><li>Yoga and Meditation help the practitioner realize the untapped power of the Self by the integration of his or her body, mind and soul with the Cosmic Power. Such powers are not supernatural; they are within everybody. The only question is their realization, tapping and applications. </li></ul><ul><li>Most of the great sages in India had acquired these powers. In certain cases somebody may born with Yogic powers without practicing it. Such persons are mere human beings and not Prophets or the Incarnations of any God with divine powers. </li></ul><ul><li>While Yoga gives more emphasis to spiritual power, the emphasis of Tantric is on psychic power. Some tantric cults use even negative powers for material benefits and resort to human or animal sacrifice, liquor and etc. Now Yoga has been reduced or mistook as a set of physical exercise and mental concentration for health and eliminating stress or worries or tensions. </li></ul><ul><li>As a result of constant practicing of Yoga, even an illiterate person could become a man of wisdom by revelation; one could know the past, the present and the future; one could present simultaneously in different places ; one could be young and healthy for several years and etc. </li></ul><ul><li>. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  30. 30. YOGIC POWERS <ul><li>Every human being is packed with so many powers and faculties that could be tapped by realizing the powers of the body, mind and soul and integrating them with Cosmic Power. Yoga and meditation are the means by which one could realize and activate various faculties ( attaining Sidhi through Samadhi). </li></ul><ul><li>Out of hundreds of faculties, Yoga identified at least three centers of faculties concerning intellectual, aesthetic and mystical powers. One can activate any one of these faculties or a combination of them depending upon the personal choice, caliber and stamina. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  31. 31. INTELLECTUAL POWERS <ul><li>With the constant practicing of yoga and meditation, one could attain tremendous intellectual and intuitive powers. Knowledge and wisdom could be acquired either by revelation or by intellectual powers, including the ability to observe and to make critical analysis. Self realization and the realization of the Brahman are the means of acquiring wisdom and knowledge by revelations. </li></ul><ul><li>Revelations are not the words of the Brahman who does not talk to any man in a particular language. The Brahman does not need any mediator or prophet to communicate with other human beings. Every body is free to realize the Brahman by oneself and not through any other person or mediator. However, for learning and guidance ,one has to seek the help of teachers or masters who impart Knowledge to generations, interpret knowledge in various contexts and sustain the growth of knowledge. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  32. 32. EDUCATION <ul><li>For attaining greater integration between the body, mind and soul and also between man and woman and ensuring proper interaction of man with the Nature, the Brahman and the Society, one has to undergo education under a great guru or teacher. </li></ul><ul><li>Constant contact with great minds and discussions with them help the student attain knowledge and wisdom. Education is the best means for enlightening and realization that results in acquiring knowledge and wisdom either by observation and analysis or by intuition and revelations. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  33. 33. ARTISTIC AND LITERARY POWERS <ul><li>Arts and literature are the expression of beauty or aesthetic aspects of life and the Nature by the manipulation of imagination. One who practices the Yoga and meditation can attain tremendous aesthetic powers so as to become a great creator or performer of arts and literary works. Great artists have yogic powers. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  34. 34. NATIYA SASTRA <ul><li>Systematic expressions of the basic nine human emotions or rasas, ensuring beauty or aesthetic elements of life, result in all forms of performing arts like acting, singing and dancing and also various forms of literary works. Natiyasastra, compiled by Sage Bharata is considered as the first scientific manual on performing arts. All forms of classical performing arts in India are designed in accordance with its basic principles. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  35. 35. MYSTIC POWERS <ul><li>Most of the great yogis, at higher level, have acquired tremendous mystic powers, including going to the past or the future; simultaneously appearing in distant places or disappearing from different places and crossing the barriers of time and space. </li></ul><ul><li>However, several magicians have falsely been claiming that they have yogic or mystic powers or they are prophets or god man or god woman and thereby cheating and misguiding the people. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  36. 36. NOT FOR SELFISH INTEREST <ul><li>Making use of the yogic powers for the selfish ends, either for one’s own fame, power and wealth or for doing harm to the others, including exploiting and misguiding the others are the greatest misdeeds and the violation of the Dharma. </li></ul><ul><li>Yogic powers are meant for the well-being of all others people and creatures – “loko samastha sughino bhavathu”. Nobody should claim that he represents the Brahman or reproducing the words of the Brahman or the mouth piece of the Brahman as the Brahman is the creator of each and every human being who could not claim any infinity or perfection or absoluteness. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  37. 37. AHAM BRAHMASMI <ul><li>At the higher levels of realization, the Self has become the manifestation of the Brahman and the Self is in union with the Brahman. At this stage of realization, the Self proclaims : aham brahmasmi or the Brahman is within me and I am within the Brahman. I am not separated from Him and the Universe; I am in Bliss; I find Him everywhere, here and there -- thathwamasi . </li></ul><ul><li>This is exactly what Jesus Christ has said about the ‘Heavenly Father’ or Brahman, the Kingdom of God and himself, as has been revealed in the Gospel of St. John and also in some other Gospels. But, those who do not have a clear idea about Sanadhana Dharma, including Hindus or Christian theologians, may find it difficult to understand Jesus Christ and his teachings which are the simplified and beautiful representation of Sanadhana Dharma. </li></ul><ul><li>Jesus Christ has even lamented that his disciples could not understand what he is saying about the Kingdom of God, Loving the God ( in stead of Fearing) and Loving one another and Forgiving the enemies ( in stead of taking Revenge) and thereby becoming the Sons or Daughters of the God and then addressing God, “Our Heavenly Father..”. This is the core of ‘The New Testament’ distinguishing it from ‘The Old Testament ’ or Torah or even the Koran. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  38. 38. A WHOLE PACKAGE FOR PEACE AND HAPPNESS <ul><li>Sanadhana Dharma is a whole and complete package for a happy and blissful life integrating the material, psychic and spiritual attainment of life based on the eternal values and principles. Realization of the Self and the Brahman, the Absolute and Omnipresent God are the highest objectives of life for which one must attain knowledge and wisdom, keeping body, mind and soul sound and healthy. </li></ul><ul><li>It is highly logical and scientific far ahead of all religions and ideologies, and is based on universal love and brotherhood. It makes one free from fear, terror and worries, on the solid foundations of Dharma and Karma. Sanadhana Dharma has nothing to do with the dirty caste system, dominance of the Brahmins, animal or human sacrifice, worshipping cows or deities or god men and keeping millions in poverty and ignorance. The world, especially has to reinvent Sanadhana Dharma for a better world in which every body ( not the chosen one alone) can attain Happiness and enjoy the Pleasures of Life and attain or realize the Brahman. </li></ul>01/12/12 Secrets of Happiness and Enjoying the Pleasures.
