|From Crime Age to Divine Age|
Man today is unmindful of what effect his actions will have on others. He has scant regard for the welfare of others. His insatiable greed has resulted in inhuman exploitation of others. In this, he has gone even to the extent of depriving others of bare necessities of life. Black-marketing, hoarding, bribery and adulteration hold no bar for him. He can adulterate even such things as food-stuff and spices and what are called 'life-saving drugs'. He can sell spurious medicines though it may injure the health of others. He even pollutes the atmosphere and the water-resources through the industrial wastes, chimney soot and smoke from the motor vehicles to the detriment of all. To be brief, man is now living on brother man. He has now become callous and cruel.
His anger is now more wild than even the wild animals themselves. Though possessed with language and reasoning faculty, he strikes head against head to settle his disputes. And, his hand has horns too and his hands have the claws too! He has spent astronomically high amounts to pile up atom and hydrogen bombs for destroying 'civilization' and for feeding the cannon with fodder though millions of his brothers have nothing to feed them with.
Sex-indulgence has now become a means of recreation. About forty million people are being added to the world every year, with a grave danger to the human race.
One can go on adding endlessly to the list of crimes and vices, for man today has become barbarous, liar, cheat and hypocrite. He wants to deceive God even after making money through unfair means!
Such being the state of society, let us warn that the world is heading towards a major catastrophe through over population, nuclear war, natural calamities, civil strife and environmental pollution.
But, let it be noted that divine efforts are also going on to sow the seeds of a divine world order by implanting divine qualities in the mind of those who are willing to listen to the divine call and to change their ways. Those who would care would go via divine knowledge, Raja Yoga and virtues, to the divine world.
