“Rise of India :It’s Implication to Asia and the World” Shri S. Gurumurthy
Thoughtful lecture. Indians should be proud of their tradition.
Mr. Gurumurthy, India and its traditions may be great in the past. But today, it sucks. Everyone from top to bottom is corrupt. Nobody respects self or other. Only competition and struggle for survival everywhere. Country is divided with religion, cast, creed, Quota system, etc. It looks like undivided externally, but internally they are divided in their mind and action. People cheat left and right. It cannot improve in our life time. Period. Your views and opinion coming from the dejection that you cannot appreciate or enjoy Western Life which is constantly running in the back of our mind.
Mothers in India is the embodiment of power and worshipped as such (shakti swaroopam). In india, we have 51 shakti peethams, dedicated to various mother Goddesses. Adi shankaracharya, in his soundarya lahiri strotram 1st sloka crystal clearly declares this truth: Shivah shakthya yukto yadi bhavati shaktah prabhavitum Na chedevam devo na khalu kusalah spanditumapi; Atas tvam aradhyam Hari-Hara-Virinchadibhir api Pranantum stotum vaa katham akrta-punyah prabhavati Lord Shiva, only becomes able to do creation in this world along with Shakthi Without her, even an inch he cannot move, And so how can, one who does not do good deeds, Or one who does not sing your praise, Become adequate to worship you Oh, goddess mine, Who is worshipped by the trinity.
It is true US men do not like woman to be equal, I am here for ten years. Talk Politics with Red necks. They openly say they can not imagine woman as their President. Let us see Hillary can turn the tables.
