All Indians must be united: Analogy of Dharmaja
Puttaparthi, Sai Kulwanth Hall (1996 Special Discourses )
Divine and novel thoughts are within man. For this, unity is very essential. Dharmaja set a very good ideal in this aspect. How did he do it? “We are one hundred and five brothers. We are not just five but a hundred and five brothers. During times of difference of opinion amongst us, we are five Pandavas and hundred Kauravas. But when threatened from outside we all unite to form a hundred and one brothers.” Similarly, all Bharathiyas should be one. The culture of Bharath is one, its Dharma is one, and Bharath race is one. Forgetting such oneness and giving room to differences the whole country is divided and has lost its sanctity. Party might be different, race might be different, state might be different, but all Bharathiyas are one. With such conviction the Bharathiyas should stand united and protect the nation. There may be many individual differences. On individual level, each one is for himself. But with respect to country all must unite and stand as one. This is the principle of Dharmaja. When there are differences amongst themselves the five Pandavas are apart from the hundred Kauravas. But when the country is threatened all unite as one. This unity, which is the main principle of Dharmaja, must be fostered.
Develop Selflessness like Krishna00:02:00
Develop only good ideas. What ever you do, do it selflessly. This is what Krishna did. He conquered a lot of kingdoms, He entered into political life. He freed people from all types of cuningness. He put down people who were on the wrong path. He gave power and authority to all people who would be able to manage. However many kings He defeated, He remained a king without a crown. After killing Kamsa, the people of the city prayed to him, 'Swami, you can become the king of this Madhurapuri and rule'. He said, 'If I become the king I may have only this kingdom, I would rather be a king-maker than a king. I should be the one who makes kings. I do not want this kingdom. I would rule the kingdom of your hearts. That is enough'. Such are the great and broad feelings of God. We are basing our understanding of Krishna on the basis of the cinemas and the dramas that we see.
