The West and The East.
Difference in everything.
But, as the mystics say Partnerships are made in heaven.
So, Do I.
Well. I could have said that India needs America.
Mind you, India is not going to provide any material or militarily help.
Nor its going to be a place for so called American bases.
What India can give to America is.
It’s Ancient Knowledge.
It’s philosophy and psychology.
But, Why only America?
Well. America is leading the world in everything.
Whatever America does, world follows it.
Today its Denim Jackets, Iphone, Organic Food etc etc.
Tomorrow its something else.
But, yes like Whatever the big brother does the little brothers follow it.
But, I’m sorry to say.
The present situation is very different.
Today, the youth in America is indulging in so called liberalism.
Drugs. Alcohol. Gaming Addictions. Sexual Activities. Junk Food.
What is really happening?
You have individuals who are not really cared for, everyone is busy in desiring something.
That’s quite evident with the amount of psychological issues the people there have.
Shootings in School. Homicides. Early Divorces. Teen age pregnancies. Drug Addictions.
These all are psychological issues, nothing more.
What’s the cause of these issues?
Too much affection for Materialistic ideas and Individualistic Mindset.
Really, what I observed in even TV series and News and all. (maybe I know that they don’t depict reality, but still)
So, okay. Yeah.
We know what’s the problem with America.
But, How can India help?
Well. I said that Ancient Knowledge and Indian Philosophy will help.
Yoga. Vedanta. Upanishads.
Does it wring a bell?
But, I’m not talking about Yogic Poses.
Those postures .
I know that those seem to be quite glamorous.
Well. Yes. They are.
But, do most of you know, what yoga means?
I may get low statistics here.
Just because. The Americans really didn’t learned what yoga is.
They just got fascinated with Physical Yoga.
But, this physical yoga is just 20% of actual yoga.
Rest is mental.
So, if you’re doing just physical and leaving the mental behind.
Then you can be called a person who’s good in doing postures.
But, you won’t certainly be called a Yogi.
Yoga in actual means Union.
The Union of mind,Body, spirit.
It teaches about, how to handle your desires. Your thoughts. Your emotions.
To sum it up.
In actual it deals with your life and how can you be happy.
How you can be at peace?
Well. My this post is specifically for Americans.
So, Many years of every materialistic indulgence.
Are you at peace?
That’s why you turned up to India.
That’s why you come to India just to learn physical yoga.
But, that’s physical.
Why don’t you come for mental and physical yoga both ?
Okay. You don’t want to come.
You can search online.
Read. Read. And just think. Think why I’m not happy. Why I’m not content.
Yes. You’ll get all your answers in Indian philosophy.
Just type Vedanta or Bhagvad Gita or Yoga (your favourite one) on internet.
Why I’m so concerned about America?
I’m concerned about the World.
If tomorrow America follows something really good.
If she becomes a storehouse of knowledge, Wisdom and Peace.
The World will follow it.
The Whole World will buy books, read about scriptures and become wise.
There will be so much good that can be done.
If one country follows it.
Today so many countries hate America because of its foreign policy, Trade policy and World Domination.
Middle East hates you.
Many Countries in Asia hates you.
Russia hates you. (that’s old one)
Europe has started to hate you (subconsciously :P)
You’re still living in Cold War era.
But, has it done anything good?
Countries have got destroyed in war.
Millions in hunger.
That’s not the way to lead the world.
The reason for all this is just because of American Citizens not doing what’s right.
If they had protested.
If they had selected leaders which have right policy and who are wise and caring.
Then these events would have never occurred.
Reason for this is your Ignorance.
For what the whole world suffers.
India is ready to give all her ancient knowledge and Wisdom.
So that you all become wise and take better decisions.
Are you willing to embrace it ?
