Mohan Bhagwat Chief of Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh on Friday said that all our Hindu traditions, despite intellectual differences, are examples of ‘Dharma’ and that all ‘Sampradayas’ in Bharat need to be purified to follow discipline.
“The world is one family and we will make everybody ‘Arya’ that is culture. Although the word ‘culture’ is not sufficient, for a better world I have to say ‘culture’. Satya and Ahimsa are basic principles of Vijaya. All our Hindu traditions, despite intellectual differences, are examples of Dharma. All Sampradayas in Bharat need to be purified to follow discipline. We go everywhere and touch everybody’s heart they may agree they may not agree but we have to connect with all,” said RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat while addressing ‘World Hindu Congress in Bangkok, Thailand.
The World Hindu Congress which takes place every four years, is being hosted currently in the Thai capital. Organised by the World Hindu Foundation, the event opened on Friday and will culminate on November 26.
“We have Dharma Vijay, the Vijay that stands on Dharma, the process that depends on “Dharma Niyams” (Dharma Rules) and the resultant is also Dharma that is the duty,” he added.
Mohan Bhagwat said that India witnessed Dhana Vijay (Material), Asur Vijay’ (aggression)
“To acquire possession of all means of material happiness, people try to fight and dominate each other. We have experienced this, the second is ‘Dhana Vijay’- to acquire all means of material happiness, but intention is not good, intention is self-centred. We have experienced ‘Asur Vijay’- they committed aggression on other societies, they have ruled for 5200 years, and reaped destruction and havoc in our land. We have experienced ‘Dhana Vijay’ for over 250 years, India was looted,” Mohan Bhagwat said.
