System of governance should be egalitarian and exploitation-free: RSS chief
Ujjain: Rashtriya Swayam Sewak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat today said that system of governance should be egalitarian and exploitation free. He was emphatic in pointing out that happiness has no meaning unless everyone is happy.
Bhagwat was addressing 3-day International Vichar Mahakumbh’s inaugural session at Ninaura near Ujjain today. He said according to Indian tradition, all living beings are children of nature. Human beings inherit the value system from nature.
In Madhya Pradesh, Bhagwat said, Kumbh’s ideological tradition is being revived. Today, thinkers and philosophers of entire world have come closer. United Nations Organisation has said that nature of every country should be taken into consideration while ensuring development. Similar change is visible in global ideologies as well. The philosophy that the entire world is a single unit and the concept of unity in diversity is being recognised globally. Instead of struggle and strife, coordination should be the order of the day.
Bhagwat said we should maintain the scientific tempor but at the same time uphold Sanatan values. Through this, a model of new global structure should be chalked out and introduced in our country. Swami Vivekananda has said that Dharma should be tested on the touch stone of science. Current problems should be solved through convergence of science and spiritualism, he observed.
Bhagwat said that for salvation, The confluence of knowledge, devotion and Karma is necessary. Dharma has 4 foundations including truth, mercy, cleanliness and meditation. Inventions not directed at human welfare are useless. Ideologies should be formed on the basis of both spiritualism and science. This ideology should be put into practice to make it meaningful. An ideology which is not practical cannot be accepted.
In the welcome address, said that Vichar Mahakumbh is being held since Kumbh is directly connected with the churning of thoughts. He said that the objective is to ensure state’s welfare by honouring the wisdom of saints and seers.. He said that the biggest concern of present time is to ensure value-based human life. It is possible through convergence of science and spiritualism, he said adding science and spiritualism are complimentary to each other. He said that issues like global warming, traditional farming system, value-based life, Dharma and spiritualism have global importance.
