Sampradaan Introduction

The entire world is getting advanced with a rocket speed. The technology that you use today will become outdated in no time. In such a fast moving world parents are busy with their jobs & commitments and the children are also busy with their tight schedules. The time that parents and children spend together is decreasing gradually. Teachers will be spending more time with children but, they have several obligations to be fulfilled in the scheduled time. Therefore there is no one who is finding time to teach children about what is good and what is not good, consequently these days we have been listening about the following happening around us.

  • An under graduate student attacked a girl with acid because she denied his proposal.
  • 10th class students were caught in the hostel while drinking alcohol.
  • Five students were caught while copying, all of them were debarred.
  • 8th class students got addicted to drugs.
  • A girl committed suicide because of daily harassment by a senior student.
  • Two groups of students belong to two different casts fought, they were taken into custody – CI
  • An intermediate student with reckless driving met with an accident.
  • A 10th class student who got less marks than expected committed suicide and expired.

 We have been observing the aforementioned happenings in our day to day life. Now-a-days in children the qualities like confidence levels, moral values, ethics, affection, friendliness, helping nature etc are diminishing gradually, conversely the negative qualities like ego, recklessness, loathness, enmity, jealousy etc are increasing. Everybody agrees with this statement but no one is bothered to find the reasons and solutions.

  • Who is the reason for that?
  • Is it the candidate who committed that mistake?
  • Is it due to the system what we are following?
  • Is it because of improper guidance?
  • Is it due to irresponsible and lazy behavior of the parents in raising their children?

The actual reasons for the diminishing values, solutions to minimize the unethical activities and several unknown facts about Indian customs and cultures have been elucidated by Bhavaghni Guruji in a program called SAMPRADAAN.

Sampradaan is a comprehensive socio spiritual personality development programme conducted by Bhavaghni School of Mysticism at Pavan Pavana Gnana Mandiram, Hanuman Junction from, it was a seven day programme excluding inauguration and valedictory.

This programme has been conducted to inject certain important aspects to children, which will be helpful for them to enrich their lives in future. Undoubtedly, discipline is the key component that can quickly reconstruct the devastating society. Everyone in the society must be disciplined, which can be possible only if everyone in the society readily imbibes certain facets.  

Sampradaan’s focus is infusing those facets into the children through a strong base. The children can easily restructure the society after practicing those facets. The following are the important aspects that Sampradaan elucidated to children.

  • The importance of peaceful life. All religions, sacred and holy books say that the god is the embodiment of peace.
  • Respect the elders, others, society, cultures, customs, religions and the country.
  • The importance of concentration to achieve aimed targets.
  • The consequences that may arise due to the ego, jealous nature, enmity, bad habits etc.
  • Encouraging them to develop good habits.
  • Emphasized the significance of “Bhagavad Gita”.
  • The importance of friendship, forgiveness and gratitude.
  • Importance of living a respectful life.

By learning, adopting and following the aforementioned characteristics the children can improve the following qualities.

  • Confidence levels
  • Memory power
  • Concentration levels
  • Speaking skills
  • Communication skills
  • Leadership skills
  • Time management techniques can be learned.
  • Honesty and trustworthiness.
  • Accountability and responsibility towards the society.

 The society can be redesigned effortlessly in a constructive way after every individual absorbs all the characteristics that were infused into their mind. Bhavagni School of Mysticism conducted this program with an idea that if children can understand and develop the aforementioned qualities and teach several others then the entire society gets benefited with their contribution and positive attitude.

 Bhavaghni Guruji’s precious preaching:

Today’s world is getting collapsed due to dwindling moral values and ethics. In this fast moving world no parent has enough time to sit with their children and tell them what is correct and what is incorrect. If a kid who is unaware of righteous path commits a mistake, whom do you blame for that, the parent or the kid? Whom do you punish, the parent or the kid?

So, who else can guide the kid in the correct path? The immediate answer is the teacher. But unfortunately the teacher and the educational institutions also have no time to guide them in the correct path. They have time only to run behind students and make them attain goods marks and ranks in this competitive world. The educational system is undergoing several changes day by day in this fast moving generation but not even a single change is favoring the student to learn the values. So, those changes are helpful for the students only to earn good ranks and degrees but not the good recognition supported by good qualities. Of course it is true that every student requires quality education for their bright career and settlement in future, but at the same time they should also learn what is correct and what in incorrect.

If everyone in the society is following the correct path then there is no scope for the criminal activities to hail in the society.

In fact several parents they themselves are not going in the correct path, therefore no question of guiding their children in the righteous path. Unfortunately some parents are encouraging and pampering their children even though they are choosing incorrect paths, as a result there are lots of criminal activities hailing in the society in the form of corruption, murders, thefts, dacoity, terrorism etc. What else could be the reason for such criminal activities if not the recklessness of the parents towards the future of their children? Such thoughtless behavior of the parent is not only spoiling the future of the children, but also causing harm to the society.

Now-a-Days everyone is saying that the youth is getting spoiled. Thus, the society is devastating and moral values are dwindling. In fact it is not that youth is getting spoiled, the youth is being spoiled by the environment and the situations which are existing around them. What could be the reasons for such environment and situations? Political system, laziness and lenience of parents, rustiness in news papers, TVs and magazines and many others are the reasons. Apart from those common reasons, in this new generation the new reasons are internet, mobile phones and the changing world.

In fact is there any parent or a teacher who is guiding a student about the basic principles like, what to be done? What not to be done? How to behave? How not to behave? How to think? How not to think? How to speak? How not to speak? Not only the parents, but teachers also do not teach any of these things in any of the subjects like English, science, mathematics etc, these things are taught.

From where the children can learn all these things? The system is being continued like this since so many years. Many speakers are giving speeches that the society is devastating, youth is getting spoiled, and youth is getting addicted to several bad things. Some people are giving some vague suggestions like personality development programs, communication skills and soft skills can bring changes in the attitudes of the individuals. In fact, no one is assuredly suggesting the necessary step to be taken to protect the society.

Many personality development programs are being conducted by several organizations to impart soft skills, communication skills etc to individuals assuming that those skills can bring in morals, values and ethics, but none of those organizations were able to meet the goal of transforming every one into a veracious and a captivating leader. The reason behind their failure is the pedagogy what they have adapted for the transformation process is baseless.

Some parents might have been teaching their children about what is good and what is not good, but it will be little difficult for children to mould themselves accordingly. In a program called SAMPRADAAN the children learned about all these things in just 7 days and started changing themselves. What could be the reason for that? If you know the reason you can also bring change in many other children also. If you practice that and make others practice then it will surely bring change in every individual. The objective of SAMPRADAAN is to bring such change in every family member of every house; thereby it wants to make every house a SAMPRADAAN centre to guide several others.

One of the participants of SAMPRADAAN -2012 said that all the participants of this program will explain their friends, they will explain its importance and concept to their friends, like that the entire country can be changed and the other countries will learn from our country. Likewise the entire world will become peaceful. This is the dream of a kid who participated in SAMPRADAAN. Positively the Sampradaan can convert his dream into reality.

 Can anybody think about the reason why some children are failing to reach the righteous path even though the parents are trying to guide their kids? After participating in SAMPRADAAN for just 7 days the children are able to understand what is righteous path? What do you think could be the reason for such change? If everyone is able to catch the reason and understand it and follow it, then every house will become a SAMPRADAAN centre. Everybody can stay happily and peacefully. There is nothing magic here, an essential subject-matter has been practiced here with a strong base. If you are able to understand that theme and practice it, your life will be enriched in all aspects. Before knowing about that subject-matter, let us first discuss the importance of that subject-matter.

 The great Alexander who had conquered several countries had set everything ready to invade India. One of his ministers told Alexander that India is a very peaceful, happiest and splendid country, the reason behind such glory is the spiritual fortune what their saints have handed over them. No country is blessed with such a great spiritual wealth. So the minister requested the great Alexander to bring that spiritual wealth.

 As soon as he entered India he asked the people about that spiritual wealth. Where is that spiritual wealth? Where did you hide it? The people replied that it cannot be hidden somewhere. That spiritual wealth is originated from Vedas, which is India’s wealth. This is an enormous treasure. The people advised Alexander that in this village that wisdom is available with an old person in the written form.

Alexander called that old person and asked him to surrender that treasure immediately. The old person had thought about it for a moment and said my lord I will surely surrender that because I do not have any other option but I need one day time. If can give one day time I can handover that spiritual wisdom to you. Alexander accepted the old man’s request and asked him to show that spiritual wealth once. The old person had shown the palm leaflets (thala patra grandhalu) which contain this spiritual wisdom. Alexander ordered his soldiers to keep an eye on the old man’s house, thinking that he might escape that night. The old person with his 4 sons started a yajna. He started teaching each Veda to his each son; each son is absorbing all the slokas of respective Vedas with utmost concentration. The four children are sopping up the meaning of the slokas what they are learning and keeping the content in their minds immediately. By the next day morning each son had learned a Veda and they had dropped all those palm leaflets (thala patra grandhalu) in yajna.

 Next day morning the Alexander called the old man and asked for Vedas. The old man who had gone there with his four sons handed over his four sons to Alexander. Alexander did not accept it and asked for palm leaflets (thala patra grandhalu). Old man said it is of no use if you take those palm leaflets (thala patra grandhalu), because they are extinct. He added that his four sons absorbed all the slokas of four Vedas and they can guide the people. Alexander did not believe this and wanted to examine the wisdom of those four children. He invited all the villagers and asked them to examine the four sons of the old man by posing questions. After examining for 3 or 4 days the people adjudged that each son has absorbed the content of each Veda and they are reproducing the same without even making single mistake.

 

Alexander was astonished and asked how it is possible to imbibe the entire essence of Vedas with such concentration and being able to reproduce it in a short span without any mistakes? The old man replied the Alexander that the Indians have got this ability because of the spiritual strength, and their respect towards the spirituality because of which they were able to concentrate. There is of no use if you just carry the palm leaflets (thala patra grandhalu) to your country. Because of the spiritual strength which is within us, we are able to concentrate and imbibe the content. That is the reason why no country dares enough to fight with India. That is the spiritual strength and wealth India has.

This is the fact; this is the real strength of India. Because of this reason only every country is afraid of looking at India during the olden days. In the initial days even the British government also tried to triumph over India, but failed several times. The only reason for that was India has spiritual strength and all Indians are blessed with Spiritual wisdom.

On an ill-fated day, every Indian should treat 2nd Feb. 1835 as a Black day. On that day in British parliament Thomas Macaulay in his speech said that “I have traveled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such caliber, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self-esteem, their native self-culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation." Immediately it was decided in British parliament to introduce a new educational system in India, which can make Indians, the slaves of British.

That new system was named as Macaulay Educational System in which English and Accounts were taught. Those who learned accounts can work as a clerk under British people. That clerk post used to be a great honor. Similarly, learning and speaking English also was a great accomplishment. Slowly Indians were made slaves for three stupid attractions namely women, drinking and clerical post under British people. In India there used to be Vedic mathematics, but later the Indians were getting attracted to learn accounts to work under British people, treating it as a great honor. They projected that those who can speak English are great and they can work as collectors under British people. All these circumstances kept our spiritual wisdom and cultural heritage away from us, and every one tried to learn English. Gradually Indians lost their strength, concentration, and the spiritual wealth too. At last Indians became estranged to the word god. Also they made several changes to the supernatural power and projected every futile element as god. So the next generations completely got delinked with the actual god. Now Indians are unaware of actual god, which saints introduced in the old generations.

At present people consider only statues as Gods. People are thinking that putting their desires in front of those statues is the only relation between the god and the devotee. They became busy searching for desires and putting them in front of the statues and completely lost the connection with the heavenly divine.

Under these conditions several people of other religion approached through many ways to inflict their religion and opinions on us. Of course they got succeeded through all those channels by which they penetrated. During early days other countries used to learn from India. At last Indians are leading meaningless lives.

On this earth the first university belongs to India, which is ‘THAKSHASILA’. People from several countries used to come and join this university to learn 64 varieties of courses such as Vedas, philosophy, ayurveda, agriculture, surgery, archery, warfare, astronomy, commerce, futurology, music, dance, heritage etc. There were even curious subjects like the art of discovering hidden treasure, decrypting encrypted messages, etc. This is the history of India, it used to have such a potential because of its spirituality.

A country which had enjoyed such plentitude is now completely away from it because lack of spiritual strength. At this moment people have completely lost their relation with soul and thinking that the body alone is himself/herself. Indians are now leading their lives like this, forgetting that we are failing to improve the spiritual wisdom presented by our saints.  

 What has been happening due to that? Everyone is now-a-days talking about moral values, without even knowing the actual foundation on which we should establish the moral values. Without knowing such facts and having improper knowledge on the authentic Indian customs people are trying to establish moral values on baseless foundations.

As a tradition Indians are having several festivals, so called god in the form of statues and customs, were introduced by the saints to convey the importance of spiritual wealth to the next generations as a wealth but not to project that God is a statue. Currently no one is trying to know the actual relevance of those festivals, statues and customs. All those were being carried by our ancestors just for the sake of gaining spiritual wisdom.

 Because of Macaulay all those customs of India have been vanished and now Indians are carrying only cadavers, thinking that they are handing over the real customs to the next generations. Where is that tradition today? Where is that spiritual wisdom? Can anybody tell why we are celebrating all the festivals? What is the origin of all these things? Have you ever listened about Spiritual Knowledge or Vedas or Upanishads or Bhagavad Gita? Very few might be aware but also with certain misapprehensions.

On what basis we teach moral values to our children? As a parent if you tell your kid to behave properly, do know the exact answer if he asks why should I behave properly? If he asks, why are we celebrating this festival? Can you reply him with relevant answer? Check whether you can answer the following questions or not?

Why we are following that custom?
Why the features of that god are like this?
Why do we have these many gods?
Who is god?
Who is the creator of this universe?
Why are we going to temples?
Why these many disturbances in the society, if all are just souls and not the bodies?
Where can I find god? Whom should I approach to seek for god?
How can I improve my concentration?
What is meant by good behavior? How to behave like that?
 
Are you in a position to answer any of the above questions? When you do not know about these things how can you teach moral values to your children? None of the statues and photos which you are praying to get your desires fulfilled can teach you the moral values. In fact those statues and photos can’t even fulfill your desires too. This system is only useful for putting your desires in front of god or otherwise for changing the god if the previous god does not bless you with those desires.

 Why the so called religions are useful except changing the gods? Our Indian religion has become like this and the wealth given by saints has got vanished today. Now everyone is worried that the moral values are diminishing and the youth & children are getting spoiled. Are you trying to learn what you are supposed to learn? Macaulay’s educational system ruined our traditional educational system. The same is being continued even today also.

 Mahatma Gandhi said “Knowledge without Character is Dangerous”, so we should bring changes in educational system, but no one was worried about Gandhiji’s words. Abdul Kalam after becoming the president of India discussed with the central minister and said, “We must bring changes in our educational system, and then only we can witness the real talent in children, which would be fruitful for the society. Every Indian must link the delinked relation of theirs’ with the spiritual wisdom, which was elucidated by the great saints of India. By now we understood what has really delinked us with god”. Even after his opinion also the required changes have not been observed, because we are completely drowned in a slough called Macaulay educational system.

Today there needs a change not only in children but in every citizen of India. Every person must try to attain the lost spiritual wealth back into the hands. How can we bring that wealth back? It is possible only by following Bhagavad Gita.

If you start your life by practicing the principles taught by God in Bhagavad Gita and treat it as your life then nobody is required to teach you moral values. Bhagavad Gita teaches the way to think, the way to behave, the way to speak, the way to perform any job, the way to pray god, who the god is, where that god is, how you can become close to the god, the way to reconcile the broke up link between you and the god, what kind of merits to build up, what qualities to be curtailed and many more virtues.

There is nothing which is not obtainable in Bhagavad Gita. Even the world best personality development trainers also cannot teach new subjects which is not there in Bhagavad Gita, because there is no one who is prudent than the great saints. Bhagavad Gita gives us such a great spiritual wealth.

Never think that Bhagavad Gita is only for elderly people and sages, till today we are under such apprehensions. This is the most disgraceful situation. In early days the entire world was astonished at India with certain questions in their mind. What is the reason for their spiritual wisdom? What is that wisdom actually? How did they get such strength?  

It is everyone’s responsibility to rebuild such a heritage. No one will come to save us, we are still alive and we have Bhagavad Gita with us therefore, we need to save ourselves. To attain peace, happiness, and for the future the bright future of our children we must practice the principles of Bhagavad Gita by taking it into our hands. Therefore, once again our next generations can make the entire world astonished.

Bhagavan vuvaacha – “the supreme authority himself confessed these things”. The god is not in statues or mountains or trees or somewhere else. Yes! God the supreme authority is in Bhagavad Gita. He is showing you the way to mould yourself, the way to speak and the way to think. Like this he is enlightening everything to us.

Bhagavad Gita tells us what we require in life from the beginning of our life to the ending of our life. For us, in Bhagavad Gita god is telling about every aspect, which is useful for our life. This is the spiritual wealth given by our satins. A god who is in statue or photo, a god who will expire or who will get vanished can never speak about all these things.

You may give your children crores of properties, tones of jewels, amazing buildings, costly lands but they cannot take anything along with them. In fact if they continue to grow with same habits they might become slaves to the bad habits, they may lose that entire tangible wealth also. With such indiscipline they will become attracted to corruption and they will be imprisoned, we have many such practical examples also.

No one can save the society if the children continue to grow like this without following Bhagavad Gita. Macaulay’s educational system may produce doctors, lawyers, engineers, IAS & IPS officers etc, but that system cannot produce a good human being with good moral values, ethics, self-discipline, self-confidence, spiritual wisdom etc. whereas Bhagavad Gita can produce a perfect human being with aforementioned qualities, whom the god is actually expecting.

Now-a-days there are many officers like judges, IAS and IPS who are imprisoned, and many politicians who are feeling ashamed to show their faces to the public. Under these circumstances their parents are ashamed of revealing their children’s names to the public though they enjoyed high positions.

As a parent to tell the child’s name proudly you should teach them the spiritual wealth, neither the tangible properties nor the Macaulay’s education. If you bring your children close to Bhagavad Gita then not only yourself, the entire country proudly says that he is an Indian.

If you can tell your children to follow Bhagavad Gita, you need not tell him anything about good qualities, Bhagavad Gita itself moulds him to be good. The same thing has been done for 7 day in SAMPRADAAN. The attempt that has been made by BHAVAGHNI SCHOOL OF MYSTICISM had brought change in all the participants of SAMPRADAAN -2012. All the BHAVAGHNI members had practiced the principles of Bhagavad Gita and had taught the same with love and affection, which made the participants’ parents astonished after observing the change in their children.

It is an advice to everyone to keep Bhavaghni Peetam at your house. All the BHAVAGHNI members are praying this Bhavaghni Peetam. Everyone should promise that “We will abide to the beliefs of Bhagavad Gita”. Tell your children to pray for that Peetam and make sure that they will do it with love and faith. Let your child construct his life according to Bhagavad Gita. A god who is in statue or photo will not guide you or your children in the proper direction, but the Bhavaghni Peetam will teach that. That Bhavaghni Peetam will show everybody the way to make the life fruitful.

It is a sincere request to all the parents. Past is past leave it as a nightmare, without knowing our strength we have become hopeless. At least now try to understand our strength and catch the spiritual wealth given by our ancestors. This is the wealth which you cannot measure. Try to understand the value of this treasure. Come close to the Bhavaghni Peetam so that you can understand who the god is.

So far every one of you has been thinking that you are a devotee of god. Who is that god? Without knowing the actual god how can you claim that you are a devotee of god? Aren’t you feeling ashamed after knowing that you are a devotee without knowing the god? People think that they know everything. Why didn’t you try to know about god since your childhood? Why didn’t you think about it? Why are you in a hopeless situation in front of your children? Become close to Bhagavad Gita and try to become knowledgeable. Give this ancestral wealth to the children.

This is not being invented by any one today. This is the ancient wealth given by the saints. It is just intimation that you are the successor of that wealth. There are many people who say that they are gods, supernatural powers etc, and they also suggest many ways to achieve peace, but they are useless. Unlike all such fake claims Bhagavad Gita is the exact way to find peace and god.

Take Bhagavad Gita into your hands and follow it. Do not blame your children; the mistake is on the parents’ side. The children are very clever, they can grasp and imbibe the knowledge very quickly at childhood age, and accordingly they can also develop qualities in them. If parents feed them good principles and morals at the childhood age they can develop good qualities and grow as an ethical person with good attitude and positive thinking.

Pray to Bhagavad Gita Peetam every day by keeping it at home. Every person should understand Bhagavad Gita and follow the principles what it is saying. Every house must contain a Bhagavad Gita Peetam.

Bhagavad Gita is saying that if you donate some thing forget about it immediately. Do not expect any name or fame and requital. Rajo guna and Thamo guna are keeping people away from salvation. As stated by Bhagavad Gita every one must develop Sathvika guna, which will be useful for everyone during the last stage of life. Sathvika guna reminds what you need to think about till the last stage of your life according to Bhagavad Gita.

People are thinking that there are several gods with different features. Therefore, everyone is roaming all the places and thinking that they have gone to see god. But, Bhagavad Gita - the authentic words of the god is describing the god in a different way, which is the actual way that every human being needs to identify, understand and follow it.

īśvaraḥ sarva-bhūtānāṁ
hṛd-deśe 'rjuna tiṣṭhati
bhrāmayan sarva-bhūtāni
yantrārūḍhāni māyayā

The god is there in your heart. Practice the sayings of Bhagavad Gita and reach the state of salvation.

Every human being must feel every minute that Bhagavad Gita is the god and it should be worshipped. Never feel that Bhagavad Gita is a part of your life, feel that it is your life. Trust that the life will become marvelous with good moral values. This is the property that parents should hand over to their children.

Thus, the goal of SAMPRADAAN can be achieved. BHAVAGHNI does not want to leave the children after conducting SAMPRADAAN program. BHAVAGHNI wants to show you the change in your children after this one week SAMPRADAAN program and tell you the reason why children are not approaching the right path these days. BHAVAGHNI wishes to bring you all close to Bhagavad Gita with the help of SAMPRADAAN and by explaining you about the mistakes to be corrected to bring changes in the children and put them in right path.

Since so many years all the BHAVAGHNI members have been keeping the BHAVAGHNI Peetam and treating it as life. All of them feel that it is not a part of the life, but it is the life. BHAVAGHNI advises everyone to choose this fruitful way to achieve salvation. Do not mislead yourself by thinking that it has been started newly. It is a very old tradition which was introduced by our great saints; unfortunately we got disassociated with it.

In the olden days children used to stay with Sadgurus in Gurukulas to learn all these principles and lead a happy and peaceful life with high standards of values, morals and ethics. But, now-a-days because of the existing system and the fast moving world, the children, who are the next generation parents got completely delinked with Sadgurus. So the tradition of staying with Sadgurus has been stopped and they are not learning and following the required moralities in life, which is yielding negative results and therefore the moral values and ethical values are diminishing gradually. It is high time to stop running in this world for unimportant things, realize what the ultimate goal is and start your journey with the blessings of Sadgurus and reach your ultimate destination.

 

Jai Sachidanand!!
