 Replace system of Politics with Spirituality

By Kapil Kakar

Meaning of word Politics in Oxford dictionary is the “art or science of government”. One needs to know the purpose of government? Why was governing system introduced? Did it come into force to keep man away from man, or to make man use actions and words of contempt for each other or it came into force to create an environment that was true, fair and congenial for the mankind. The essence of government was to spread friendliness, cooperation, perspective thinking, optimism and love.

In the Political system the people who took the burden on human development on their shoulders essentially believed in Selflessness, Sacrifice and Integrity. Altruism was their religion and they attempted to live for the development of the world that too at the cost of their family lives. If the Mother Earth still would have been served by such people the complexion of this universe would not have been as insipid as one finds today. This planet would not have been divided into pieces called countries, it would not have been the place of destruction and poverty and the desire of people would not have been accumulation of wealth, on the contrary the desires would have been accumulation of knowledge i.e. the essence of creation.

Political system is as old as mankind and has been a part of never ending transformation and changes. It has been there since the time man came into existence. The only difference more than ten thousand years ago was that the head of governing system used to be king and they were supposed to be the angels of God who were respected for their selfless work for the masses.

Today, right from religion to even petty human activity, all has been politicized. And the grass root of society has been dogmatic religion, which creates fear and not love for God and mankind. The political system and the politicians have contributed little; instead, they have created differences, hunger, hatred, revenge for their long term vested interests. Today throughout the world politics and politicians are seen with an eye of doubt and disrespect. Today their actions are opposite to their words. As the saying goes “you give what you have” and probably this is what our leaders have, a selfish intention.

In this kind of ugly self created environment through his deeds man is going farther and farther away from each other, one country has people living in comfort and the other country have people who do not have food to eat, cloth to wear and bed to sleep. Is this, what the current political system has given mankind, and was this its aim?

Man has done enough thinking and experimentation at the cost of each other and at all levels whether it's the individual or family, society or state or country and now the time has come to act, the time has come for the people of this beautiful planet to reinstate beauty by following the fundamentals of life that starts and ends with spirituality, as under its (God's) pretext they claim and promise to be doing everything. Spirituality is the key to togetherness, share, selflessness and love. It is spirituality that will make man realize that will answer the unanswered and ignored queries such as who am I? Where did I come from?, What are my duties and responsibilities? Why do people die? Man stays on this planet for 50-70 years on an average but still does not share the curiosity of purpose of his existence and probably this is what political system of today has given us, How to ignore or overlook basic questions of life.

Let man live for each other, not under the pretext of spirituality but because of spirituality. Let man understand that he has come from somewhere and he will go back to his true home. Let man understand that his creation has diverted his attention from where he has come from to what he should do.

Spirituality has no boundaries. It is wholesome and not individualistic. It has no limitation of language, caste, creed, religion and sex. Humans can eradicate all evils by establishing a spiritual system and following spirituality. The essence of which is love and sacrifice. It is love, which can only replace competition, dissatisfaction and selfishness with cooperation, contentment and giving/sharing attitude respectively. It is love, which can bring in desire to serve and not betray each other.

IN BHAGVAD GITA TEXT 1-3 CH=16 LORD SAYS FEARLESSNESS, PURIFICATION OF ONES EXSISTENCE; CULTIVATION OF SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE; CHARITY; SELF-CONTROL; PERFORMANCE OF SACRIFICE; STUDY OF THE VEDAS; AUSTERITY; SIMPLICITY; NONVIOLENCE; TRUTHFULNESS; FREEDOM FROM ANGER; RENUNCIATION; TRANQUILITY; AVERSION TO FAULT FIDING; COMPASSION FOR ALL LIVING BEINGS; FREEDOM FROM COVETOUSNESS; GENTLENESS; MODESTY; STEADY DETERMINATION; VIGOR; FORGIVENESS; FORTITUDE; CLEANLINESS AND FREEDOM FROM ENVY AND FROM PASSION FOR HONOR-THESE TRANSCENDENTAL QUALITIES, O SON OF BHARTA, BELONG TO GODLY ,MEN ENDOWED WITH DIVINE QUALITIES.

By following the above text we should attempt to make a beginning towards the system of spirituality, our true system out of which we are born and are eternal and always one. A day will come sooner than later when we will have a spiritual system which every man will enjoy following.
