Mantram - 8 to 10. [ Description of the sad state of knowledge-less ( devoid of Upasana ) rituals ]
Discussion-1. " Karmam and Jnanam" .....
Never was the world without this bitter controversy between the two principles of life, namely, (1).laborious, extrovert action and (2). peaceful introvert seeking.
'KARMA JNANAM'have been at tug-of war, unbroken at all times, and this endless controversy itself, we may say, was the main 'motive-force,' which have "HINDUISM" such a perfect and tight "Science" of "Spiritualism.'
This strength never realised by the Bharatheeya people passed on by way 'Rishi parampara' through 'Mother Sruti'.
"The so called instrument 'Secularism' is mis-used by politicians and the so-called minorities, take advantage of this and put their collective vote-bank power to wipe out this ancient culture, by opposing Yogasanam, Surya-Namaskaram, term 'OM' and "Vande matharam" , again common civil code, disrespecting 'COWS' and many more such as laughing at our epics, Veda-s, scriptures, and even Srimad Bhagavad-Gita where East and West world all-over respect our culture and traditions and try to learn them ....."
In the history of the world also, we find that periods of 'Karmam,' yielding place to periods of 'Jnanam' which, in its turn, give place to 'Karmam' again.
We are living in an age of 'Karmam' and that is why we find a general cry against life of retirement and renunciation.
