    Elite/Pseudo
    Nexus
    This ‘Tamasha’ of lavish religious festivities leaves the poor baffled and the elite (intellectual) class simply spurns away. Instead of transforming the latter for serving the interests of the society, the disenchantment creates revulsion for religion, and the words of God, Divinity become unpalatable for them.
    In such a scenario, where is the scope of God/Divinity in their scheme of things and life style? But all is not lost. In India and Muslim countries, religions, faiths, sects etc. do play a dominant role in the lives of a majority of their people. Religions play very positive and strange roles. Some of these ancient religions are the soul diet of about 70 percent of the population of these countries. Their followers are linked to God through their religion. About 28 percent are catered by different faiths. Only the remaining 2 percent of the population, the cream (!) of the society, which controls more than 80 percent wealth/resources of the world, are away from God/faiths/sects. They are real rulers of the masses. This ruling class of the ‘intellectuals’ treats the 70 percent populace—which believes in God and happens to be deprived of the material wealth—the have-nots, as ignorant filthy beasts. Though their tolerance towards the ‘devout’ (the 20 percent), who are attached to some particular sects/Mathas, is somewhat mellowed, as this class is their immediate subordinate—the class of executives, which enforces the writ on behalf of the elite. They are placed in the category of the hypocrite. These hypocrites, though belonging to the special sects, do in fact trace their roots to the ‘mother’ religions. Both Sunny and Shia belong to their mother religion of Islam, and their Prophet is one and the same. Jews, Muslims and Christians, all belong to the same ancestry. Similarly in India too, all the major religions have emerged from the ‘mother’ religion, i.e., Sanathandharaman. Thus 90 percent populations of the world, in some way or the other do believe in God and their medium of commune with God is through a religion. But it may surprise many, except for Sanathandharaman; all other religions are the creation of their respective Masters. This was the only religion, which was entirely based on philosophical content, which totally relate to the eternal truth of God. That is why it was described as the Mother-Religion of all the religions. It was not created by any master. It does not preach any sectarian ‘philosophy’; neither is it a sect nor does it caters to one set of people. Through time immemorial, ancient masters nourished it with different schools of thoughts. It is the sign of maturity that its multifarious colors of thoughts—six schools of thought—cater to all categories of intellectual elevations. Its holistic approach satisfies the Godly urge of the ordinary masses. For the highly advanced there is Vedhaanthik philosophy, which is the unique contribution of Indian culture and spirituality, which has no parallel anywhere in the world, in Godly search and realization. Another unique feature is its anonymous aspect of origin. Not a single seer or sage claims about his contribution for any one of its branches of ‘thought’. Although countless saints contributed in making it the most perfect specimen of human ingenuity in the development of his thought in the quest of his origin and that of the ‘Originator.’ It is one religion, (Sanathandharman) which is the conglomerate of all kinds of philosophies, which the genius brains (wisdom) of ancient nameless master had churned out after life long austerities in their search for the Truth. It is the practical composite study of Truth, which is eternal and all pervasive. But to the chagrin of the real ‘thinkers’ this religion—rather the non-religion—has been relegated to yield way to the new breed of religions, because It did not boast of its origin from the name of a single or a series of masters. Nor did it speak in the language people liked. Its contributors were unknown. Its richness of ‘thought’ content is so complete and flawless, that no other religion on earth could add or contribute or devise any new ‘theory’, ‘thought’ or ‘revelation’, which was not already in Its repository. Being Indian, it does not entitle the little-self to sermonize, transform or even indirectly draw attention of the world, towards a particular religion. But, without an iota of doubt, it is not a religion like others. It does not trumpet any particular philosophy nor does it cater to any ethnic group. It is the Mother religion, that ‘contains’—in Its cosmic-prism—all other religions. It does not make followers, nor are its propagators entitled to teach sectarian ‘philosophies.’ This is the very reason that It has been put in the junkyard and so many other religions have mushroomed, each imitating—in poor tastes, of course—any of Its celestial philosophy of ‘thought’.

    No religion, which is the ‘creation’ of one master, one philosophy and catering to one ethnical group of people, can ever claim to be secular and complete in it-self. Like an individual mind, until it comprehends its cosmic vision—Consciousness can never be perfected. That is, its elevation to wisdom and bliss state is not complete. It is a wonderful fact, not a single Master of celestial stature established an order (religion) because anyone in that state of ‘Being’ is absolved of individuality and in Him ‘exists’ only the universal-Being. Would a Universal Being ever need to establish a sectarian order or for that matter a religion? In Bhaarath there were only two such perfect Beings viz., Sri Ram and Sri Krshan. Neither of them established an order, nor was any religion established on their names, during their life- time and even after their mortal departure from this world! They are still worshipped as Avathaars: Their statues are installed in the temples and worshipped, but no religion is named after their names. Both of them exhibited complete Comprehension—Awareness, as such there was no need for them or their devotees to compartmentalize their Universality in minor and narrow ‘philosophies’.
    It is a matter of pride that Indian culture and spirituality had reached to such celestial heights, many civilizations blossomed from it: much before the Chinese or Greek ‘thought’ took birth and the West was still passing through its barbarian age. Sindhu-ghatti, Harrapan, Gangetic and Saraswati-Nadhi civilizations were some of the prime cultural amalgamations, which produced some of the finest brains in the Indian philosophy. This country did not believe in eulogizing individual prodigies but in producing a hybrid of composite ‘philosophy’ that represented every section of the society. Individual ingenuity was not promoted but there was always a system, a code of conduct to guide and give direction to the society, so that it did not deviate from its main purpose of pursuing the realization of the Supreme—Truth. It did not pursue only the God-realization, but in the process had transgressed the intervening elevations of: Dharam (Righteousness), Arth (Wealth), Kaam (Fulfillment of Desire) and finally the Moksh. The last, Moksh was not the attainment of some celestial boon, but the consequential liberation from worldly attachments, after having enjoyed the fruits of wealth through the righteous means.
    In Indian culture, all the streams of disciplines, namely, education (through gurukul system): code of conduct (through morality, subscribing to Sage Manus’Manusimrithi and Dharam Sasthra): justice (by following Nyaya Sasthra of Sage Gautham): grammar (through Sage Pannini), mental sciences (based on Sage Bharadhwaj), medicinal science (saint Charaks’ Samhitha), surgical science (saint Susruth): all supplemented only one theme i.e. realization of Truth by adopting only the rightful means. Both ends and means were important. Means were based on morality and end was the attainment of perfection, the culmination of human intellect to the level of wisdom, where there is the realization of one God and the brotherhood of man and of his divinity.
