GnanaBoomi wishes all Indians a Patriotic Republic Day!
Let us rise! Let us cast away all difference and get united in thought and action. It is this time that Mother India wants her children to get united. May the world witness India back in its glory for it is the greatest gift we can give to both the future and past generations. Our ancestors will be proud of us and the future will thank us for it.
We shall recall the voice of Swami Vivekananda on this auspicious day.
“Civilizations have arisen in other parts of the world. In ancient and modern times, wonderful ideas have been carried forward from one race to another…But mark you, my friends, it has been always with the blast of war trumpets and the march of embattled cohorts. Each idea had to be soaked in a deluge of blood….. Each word of power had to be followed by the groans of millions, by the wails of orphans, by the tears of widows. This, many other nations have taught; but India for thousands of years peacefully existed. Here activity prevailed when even Greece did not exist… Even earlier, when history has no record, and tradition dares not peer into the gloom of that intense past, even from until now, ideas after ideas have marched out from her, but every word has been spoken with a blessing behind it and peace before it. We, of all nations of the world, have never been a conquering race, and that blessing is on our head, and therefore we live….!”
This is exactly what runs in our veins. Peace in its true form, tolerance in its reality. We don’t preach, but live. Here in this land, goodness exists, spirituality lives. The people of this land, the daughters and sons of the soil who cherish the traditional roots of this holy land wherever they are, through their minds. The people of this country have been patriotic, always. This time, patriotism and freedom struggle has taken a new form where we don’t have to fight any external sources, but from within! Though this poses a great challenge and does not have the advantage of getting united against a common enemy, there is hope!
May you belong to any caste, any creed, any religion, realize this great country has savored you, nurtured you, most of all, loves you. It is treachery to think of divide, in any form. While the idea is obviously ridiculous, it is dangerous to get divided on caste, creed and religion. Think of the people who lived together in peace, love and have achieved greatest of heights in all aspects, right here in this country.
Microcosm equals Macrocosm. What is in our mind, we create outside. Think of divide, divide will manifest. Think of unity, it will manifest. Everything is in the power of our subconscious mind. Realize that we are continuously being manipulated in our minds, for decades together, letting the masses devoid of the thinking process, which is the only doorway to any greatness. Break off that delusion and claim your birthright. This country belongs to all of us. We have set examples to the world in many ways. Let us add one more feather to its glorious cap on being united in diverse conditions.
May the forefathers of this land bless us. May God bless us. May good thought prevail. May we all get rejuvenated like never before.
Happy Republic Day!
