Question: “Today’s society seems to be in a very bad condition as never seen before.....?

Dear all,  

 

Question: “Today’s society seems to be in a very bad condition as never seen before. What is the reason for this?”

 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji:

 

“It is only men who form the Society. Today, individual discipline has become a big question mark. Therefore, society will also be indisciplined only.

Responsible parents bring up their children in a disciplined way. They do not like their children reading unwanted, useless books or view such scenes. They also behave in an exemplifying manner. When the child prepares for examination they behave in the most responsible way and take care to avoid any disturbance to him/her. However, such precautions are restricted to the home only. Is that not so? What is the child’s position in the society?

One can say that there is no book or magazine in today’s society that does not have matters, which pull the mind very easily to obscene features. Such subjects are found in television, cinema and also in the websites on the internet. On the one side they carry such obnoxious scenes and write ups instigating lust in youth while on the other side they also carry advertisements, ‘Do not give birth to children’.

On the side are scenes, news that instigate violence and on the other side broadcast against such violence! News items that create fear are published, as they are sensational. Those who read such news items lose their hold in life and become mentally sick. The mind of man can be easily corrupted. It is the responsibility of the Government to keep it healthy.

 

In today’s circumstances man does not adhere to Scriptures; as also to Government’s rules and regulations.

Do you know the reason for repeated narration of Ramayana, Mahabharata and such other Holy Texts in days past?

 

Only on listening to these epics time and again would one feel that one should not speak lies or move away from dharma even under the most difficult circumstances. Then the society would also be disciplined. The bad condition in present day is only because of today’s state of affairs.”
