Discussion : 11. The west.. what happens there ...
In Europe, we find that every changing vicissitude of national life, with every war, with every revolution, there is a thorough re-arrangement of material values lived, and consequently, there is a change in the attitude of the mind and intellect to life.
With every disturbance in the brain cells in kaleidoscopic variety, we get a library of philosophies from Plato to date.
But in Bharatham, the Eternal Veda-s and the Upanishadik Truths are as true today as they were when they were taught in the floery valleys of the Sacred Ganga river.
Though the scientific developments, communal awareness, political consciousness or international situations, may meddle with our outer and inner worlds of objects and feelings, the experience of deep sleep, you will admit, is one and the same at all times.
We may have progresed and thoroughly changed in the external set up in the world and the consequent inner psychological and intellectual assesssments of things, but the experience of God-hood.
This is the goal preached in the "Upanishads."
It is not changing or changeable whatever be the outside change in our gross life.
