Our Ram Lalla Wins!

Hope the Modi government now takes it to logical conclusion by building a Grand Temple in Ayodhya at the earliest. #AYODHYAVERDICT 1/n
It is time for celebration & rightfully so. But, let us pause for a moment & reflect. It has taken us almost 500 years of wait & decades of political & court battle just to come to this stage that we can legally build a temple to Ram Lalla on his birthplace. #AYODHYAVERDICT 2/n
Just imagine, this is Karmabhoomi of Hindus; this is the land of our Devas, of Tirthas. And here, it has taken us this long and painful fight to invite back Ram Lalla embodiment of Dharma into his home. This only goes to show deep mess Hindus society is in. #AyodhyaJudgment 3/n
Let's celebrate today, but let's not lose sight of the civilization war that we are waging and which is far from over. 4/4 #AyodhyaHearing

1. Why should one practice Dharma as revealed by Sruti and Smriti? Why should one live a Dharmika live?

Manusmriti gives an interesting answer to this in Chapter 4.
2. Without causing pain to any beings, he shall, for purpose of obtaining a companion in other world, accumulate Dharma, slowly; just as the white ants accumulate the ant-hill.—(Manu 4.238)
3. There, neither father, nor mother, nor wife, nor sons, nor relations stay as companions; Dharma alone remains.—(Manu 4.239)

Alone is a creature born, and alone does it cease to be; alone it enjoys its good deeds and also its evil deeds.—(Manu 4.240)

Gita vs Smritis

1. One argument one often hears from Hindus is, when we have Bhagavad Gita which also teaches Dharma, why do we need Smritis?
2. This question is not only a result of ignorance about what Gita says [16.24: scriptures (Veda, Smriti, etc.) are basis that determines what actions be performed & what be avoided] but also result of ignorance about core difference between Dharma Upadesha in Gita & in Smritis.
3. While what Gita teaches is primarily about 'How Dharma has to be performed', what Smritis teaches is primarily about 'What constitutes Dharma & what Adharma'.

1. Adi Shankaracharya at one place writes "asampradayavit murkhavat upekshaniya"- those who are not learned in the teaching tradition are to be ignored as fools.
2. 'Sampradaya' here refers to 'teaching tradition' or the 'Guru-Shishya mode of transmission of knowledge'. This could be understood as an advice about how to approach and study Shastras. But that is not the only dimension here.
3. Sampradaya or teaching tradition not only refers to the direct transmission from Guru-Shishya but also to the textual tradition produced from such Sampradaya, most notably the tradition of commentaries.

1. Abortion remains Adharma irrespective of context because it involves preventing a Jiva who was about to take birth from doing so. However, how it practically plays out is complicated. Some thoughts on this in this tweet thread.
2. When abortion is carried to save the life of the mother, then even though there is Papam involved in such abortion, in a larger scheme that was the Dharmic choice as the saving of the mother's life takes precedence.
3. Life is never black and white. We are often given with choices which are different shades of grey and this being the case we must choose the choice which is closer to white as much as possible.

@ramas_cal @RajivMessage 1. Only a Rishi who has direct knowledge of Veda can create Smriti. Smriti for Kaliyuga is already there (Parashara Smriti). No need for new Smriti. What is needed is the contextualization of Dharmic teachings to today's needs and solving contemporary problems+
@ramas_cal @RajivMessage 2. Essential principles of Dharma are eternal, only application part is time-context specific.Smritis speak of Drishtarthas(perceived by senses),Adrishtarthas (imperceptible) & Drishta-Adrisharthas. Only subjects of Drishtarthas are purely this worldly & context specific+
@ramas_cal @RajivMessage The Adrishtarthas are eternal principles which are always valid. They form the heart of Dharmashastras. The Drishta-Adrishta is mixed of perceivable and imperceptible objectives.+

In this thread, I will be sharing my fleeting thoughts & reflections on random topics related to life, family, spirituality, etc. I will be using the hashtag #MyRandomReflections for this.
Ahimsa as a personal virtue is almost impossible to practice without some degree of Titiksha. #MyRandomReflections
Even Viraaga has Raaga in it. Or stated differently, even dispassion has passion in it, only that in this case, the passion is towards Brahman or Bhagavan as the case may be, and not towards worldly objects.
