Ignorance Vs Transcendental Knowledge!

 

Ignorance Vs Transcendental Knowledge!


 


"Basically the problems that we are facing in the world today, when we look in the newspapers, we can sum it all up into one common denominator – IGNORANCE! The prejudice, misunderstanding, the lack of mercy, the lack of responsibility to ecology, to the world, the lack of honesty amongst leaders, lack of personal satisfaction, lack of love, are all due to Ignorance.

So what is the anecdote for ignorance? KNOWLEDGE! Knowledge is the actual cure for ignorance. It's like if you have darkness, what is the anecdote for darkness? Light. So there is a Vedic saying which is very famous, Tamaso Ma Jyotir Gamayah, "Come out of the darkness of ignorance by bathing in the light of transcendental knowledge."

Every human being has the responsibility of gathering transcendental knowledge. It's not something you can inject intravenously or something someone else can do it for you. Transcendental knowledge is something, each person has to consume and digest intellectually and mentally realize it."

LET US NOT MAKE OUR STOMACH A GRAVEYARD. LET US NOT EAT FLESH. LET US BE VEGETARIANS AND STAY HEALTHY. Animals are to be loved, not eaten. Eating flesh is good neither for the mind nor for the intellect, not even for the body. It distorts the basic character of human. Think Soul is Soul and it came from the Supreme Soul…God Head Krishna
Chant:
Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare
