AlochanaamR^itaMShakti Lacking in India
I believe that the main cause
of India's weakness is not
nor poverty, nor a lack of spirituality or Dharma, but a
thought-power, the spread of ignorance in the motherland of Knowledge.
EverywhereI see an inability or unwillingness to think
- incapacity of
thought or "thought-phobia"... It is the one who can fathom and learn
the truth of the world by thinking more, searching more, labouring
more, who will gain more Shakti.... Look at Europe.
We, however, are not worshippers of Shakti; we are worshippers of the
easy way... Our civilization has become ossified, our Dharma a bigotry
of externals, our spirituality a faint glimmer of light or a momentary
wave of intoxication. So long as this state of things lasts, any
permanent resurgence of India is impossible.
We have abandoned the Sadhana of
Shakti and so the Shakti has abandoned
us. We practise the yoga of love, but where there is no Knowledge or
Shakti, love does not stay, narrowness and littleness come in.
