33m - Savitri Era Party @SavitriEraParty Sanketik Ramdev and Filmy Anna are no hope for India's future. FIVE DREAMS Manifesto broadcast on August 14, 1947 is assured rallying point. 14h Let Sri Aurobindo's editorials in Bande Mataram, Karmayogin, Dharma, and Arya a century ago guide this nation and not Ramdev's shenanigans. 14h - Himself a bundle of confusion, Ramdev's quixotic adventure can be a cruel and costly experiment in deepening of democracy in the country. 14h - Ramdev is entitled to leveraging his popularity for any agitational venture but consequences as regards public welfare are sure to backfire.

IMHO, to be pure is to live in the “psychic light”. It is seen in someone who acts neither in conformance nor defiance of society. One has to have an astounding inner balance to observe and act in all situations solely by the psychic guidance.

The Vedas are too complicated to learn for beginners. I don’t read them much. There are lots of Hindu scriptures written by a variety of individuals, not of all of whom had the same level of Enlightenment. Some scriptures are verbose, others concise, all in all a mixture of truths and fables.
One of the pitfalls of being born a Hindu is that one can become emotionally attached to the ancient past – the scriptures, cultural mores, arcane rituals, superstitions, temples, etc. This motivation prejudices the thought process and distorts the dispassionate search for the Ultimate Truth. It is futile to revere and defend things which have no contemporary relevance. That is why a dose of atheism is beneficial, as said in an earlier comment.
Instead of being driven by this premeditated reverence for the Vedas, you should start with the aspiration to “know thyself”. Practice meditation, understand human psychology (depression, anger, thoughts, intuition) and later as you mature, you will automatically discern which scriptures are relevant and which are not. So ignore the Vedas for now. Start by reading Sri Aurobindo, Vivekananda, Yogananda, Sivananda, etc. As I said already, I don’t care much about scriptures. I am an explorer of consciousness. And yes, I practice Yoga otherwise there would be no point in writing this blog […] 
I also used to ponder on these weighty matters early on. We tend to worry about such questions because our limited egoistic mentality is reluctant to endure any suffering. We want God to take care of us and make things logical and easy. Instead of searching for these answers, if you devote yourself to the spiritual path, you will find that these questions automatically dissolve themselves.

Gautam Chikermane, the self-righteous and fraudulent reporter of Hindustan Times, stands exposed. Over the last six months, Chikermane has been writing concocted and factually wrong news items in the Hindustan Times praising Peter Heehs' book and the Ashram Trustees, all in the name of freedom of speech and moral integrity. Now we know why!

The complexity of the systems, and the order of magnitude of the inter-relationships take the issues far beyond the faculties of mind, even at their highest. When we add to this the complexity of opposing viewpoints, the diversity of opinions and dogmas that abound, we have a formula for gridlock.
