VEDIC EDUCATION-THE ONLY MEANS TO REALISE ‘SARVAM KHALU IDAM BRAHMAN’

VANDANA SHARMA

Abstract


Today we live in constant fear of being victims or witnessing someone being a victim. Such is the condition of our society. Constant inhumanity, insensitivity and crimes against animals, fellow beings and nature leave us in a lull with a haunting question ‘Where are we heading? As we progress in the scientific arena of astonishing and remarkable discoveries, we also confront the devil of inhumanity, diminished ethics and dipping morals before us. With a wide range of social evils from crime against women, animals and children to dowry deaths, terrorism and environmental haphazard mushrooming before us, it’s the need of the hour that we stop and seek guidance from our great texts and Rishis. The ideas and thoughts of the great Vedas and Upanishads are bound to be beneficial for one and all because one indeed is all and all indeed is one- Sarvam Khalu Idam Brahman!! Thus, across races, nationalities and religions this knowledge will only act as a unifying force. It will bring about mutual respect and elevate us mentally, emotionally, spiritually and ethically. Without biases of religion, nationality and race it’s time to revamp our education system and imbibe the Vedic knowledge which alone has the acumen to fight against the horrors of the society and once again put India on the pedestal of being the Universal Teacher -Vishwaguru!
