We have disregarded the foundation, says RSS chief Mohan Bhagawat Guwahati, 12.05.13 :- RSS chief Mohan Bhagawat reiterated that Hindutva alone can solve all the problems facing the nation and the world today while speaking at the concluding ceremony of the Sangh Shiksha Varg, 2013 held at Hojai, in the Nagaon district of Assam. While maintaining that the sangh can only be understood through direct experience, and not through lecture or library, he said that there are some things in this world that cannot be compared to any other things, like the sky, the ocean or the war between Rama and Ravana. It is a human tendency to compare with known things when trying to understand something unknown. This is the trap people fall into while trying to understand the sangh. To some it appears as a National Sports Club, to others a national Music Club, a national martial arts organisation to some others. Many think that the sangh is a party that take part in many movements. While it is true that the sangh (or rather the swayamsevaks) does all of the above, it is none of these. Today the world has come to the realisation that the path of progress most of the nations have followed so far has led only to progress of the means of consumption, but it has failed miserably to end human misery. The root of the problem is (1) lack of spiritiuality, (2) lack of moral concern and (3) lack of values. The world is looking towards Bharat with hope as only she may show the world the true path to happiness with her vast reserve of eternal wisdom, Shri Bhagawat said. But, at home the situation is not so hopeful. There is enemy at the borders, and the people tend to blame the governement for every problem. But we blissfully forget that the governement act only as the people do. Instead of emphasising our common national interest, we display the rifts created in the name of cast, creed and religion. What we forget is that the fundamental principle that binds us together as a nation is the eternal values Bharat stands for -- its Sanatan Dharma, which is known as Hindutva. It is this foundation from where we have to start all over, Sri Bhagawat emphasised. The sangh is not a party within a society, it is the organised force of the nation, of all its people. As such, the sangh is not something to be supported from outside. It is something to be part of. Sri Bhagwat appealed to the people to be swayamsevaks and be part of the effort the sangh is making for the last 87 years.
