Mantram - 8.
Discussion-3. " But it is not. "..... to explain this an example follows....".
When your child is in the elementary classes, you have to insist that child should daily read and learn the multiplication table.
But, when he has come to the standard of pure mathematics, it should be absurd if you are to insist that he/she should yet read and learn every day the multiplication table, even during his post-graduate studies!
In primary classes, arithmetic-tables were to him, certainly his Bible, but in the college-classes, it is redundant, in as much as, the student by then has amassed the knowledge.
Similarly, rituals have an elementary purpose, without which nothing higher is possible;
but to continue wasting the entire life in mere ritualism, would be terrible wastage, and hence :
"SRUTI IS CRYING DOWN SUCH WASTEFUL POLICIES, IN THE SPIRITUAL SADHAKA-S"
Note : Even Today, Unfortunately we are still in the standard of ritualistic activities, and not rising above on our way to higher standards ( grown up.).
