सनातन - The Continuum - Celebrating Hinduism

           


             सनातन- The Continuum

     सतत सूर्य सनातन का, न होगा अस्त, विश्वास रख।
    सकल निरंतर सत्य है,यह धर्म शाश्वत, विश्वास रख।

      शब्दों का भीषण कोलाहल,
       कुतर्क का कुटिल न्याय है।
      इतिहास का गौरव भी जैसे
      विस्मृत सा इक अध्याय है।

      राष्ट्र-भाषा, राष्ट्र-भूषा
     कारण बने उपहास के।
    राम राज्य में राम के
   अब भी हैं दिन वनवास के।

     वर्ण का और वर्ग का
    यह भेद एक षड्यंत्र है।
    इक धरोहर, एक राष्ट्र
    धर्म का यह मंत्र है।

    है निरंतर धर्म यह
   आरंभ है ना अन्त है।
   सत्य-शोधक धर्म है यह
   अनवरत जीवन्त है ।

  भोले की मस्ती ओढ़ ले
  तेरा गगन, तेरी धरा,
  तू सत्य का संवाद है,
  संशय ना कर मन में ज़रा।

   केशव का गीता-ज्ञान तुम
  गाँडीव की टँकार तुम।
    तुम मौन हो संकल्प का,
   तो युद्ध का हुँकार तुम।

   राष्ट्र समझो, धर्म जानो,
   मूक लज्जित मत रहो।
   हो सनातन, हैं सनातन
  मित्र सब मिल कर कहो।

   सतत सूर्य सनातन का, न होगा अस्त, विश्वास रख।
   सकल निरंतर सत्य है,यह धर्म शाश्वत, विश्वास रख।

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man- James Joyce- Book Review

Amazon Link 
Some books are an act of education; they cannot be read in haste, cannot be understood in one read. James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man gives one such feeling.
It is a coming of age story of Stephen Dedalus. Nothing extraordinary about that. But then there a rich, slowly flowing lost river of philosophy which moves beneath the surface, turning an ordinary story of a boy growing up, encountering questions about faith, religion and sex, into an exceptional, extraordinary and engaging story. The story moves along the timeline, much in the manner of Virginia Woolf’s To the Lighthouse, where the writer is seemingly a passive narrator. Further, while this book is more of a philosophical essay wrapped around a story, Ms. Woolf’s book, on the other hand, is rather a Story primarily, with a philosophical touch. This book is blatantly philosophical, dwelling into the dangerous territory of religion and how a growing mind looks at God. It begins with his school, whe…

Bahubali 2- The Conclusion- Movie Review

We are living in an extremely cause-heavy world where causes - real and imagined cloud our minds. I saw this in the case of the movie - Beauty and The Beast. There the quarrel of the social commentators was that it explored the gay angle of one of the characters only briefly, only fleetingly. There can be nothing more absurd than that. You are demanding more from an artist than possibly he can offer. Art is a profession of lonely persuasion, and it serves the purpose its creator desires it to serve. Nothing more and nothing less. It is sad and unfortunates that the liberals, which in Indian context largely translates to Leftists, insists that art is nothing but a vehicle that should be provided to them for their political agendas and narratives to ride on. It is like insisting that the reference to the Negroes in the "The Great Gatsby" should have been expanded to cover racism in detail. The brief episode was merely to substantiate the character and nothing more. Just as cre…

Resurrecting Hinduism- Without Embarrassment

I have been pondering about the sense of despondency, the sense of shame which has been imposed on the Hindu thoughts in Indian society. Every act of faith has to be explained, justified. When partition happened, Muslims fought and obtained an independent Nation, while the other large chunk of population, which, in spite of numerical supremacy, was subjugated for centuries, got India. In line with inherent openness and flexibility of Hinduism, India became a secular nation. This is a matter of pride, since it acknowledged the basic secular nature of Sanatan Dharm. However, as things would evolve, vested political interests considered India as unfinished agenda standing in the path of a religious empire being built world-wide. Through a well-calculated intellectual conspiracy of neglect and vilification, it came to a stage that modern Hindus where embarrassed of their religion and apologetic of their faith. This neglect also resulted in the religion being left to the guardianship of un…
