On Temple’s Scheduled Walkathon to support non-violence on 10/15/2022
By Suresh Vyas
This message is for the Hindus of the world and for any temple’s Hindu leaders.
The temple’s activities related to show existence of the Hindus in the USA’s political field is most welcome, and I wish that Hindus to enter local politics to serve Hindu interests of NRI Hindus.
Non-violence is a supreme principle in the Vedic Dharma (and Jainism, Buddhism, and Sikhism are branches of the Vedic Dharma.) So, Gandhi preached अहिंसा परमो धर्मः in Hindustan’s politics against the British rulers. अहिंसा परमो धर्मः is only first half of a Vedic shlok. The second half part of the Vedic shlok is धर्म हिंसा तथैव च ॥ This says that to use violence to protect Dharma, that is to protect innocents’ lives, lands, women, honor and dignity, and freedom and liberty against the demoniac forces, is also a supreme principle. Gandhi totally neglect this “धर्म हिंसा तथैव च” Vedic teaching. This made the inherently non-violent Hindus tolerant like stones against Muslims.
It is well-known that the Britishers quit Hindustan in 1947 because of Subhaschandar Bose and his Azad Hind Fauj, and the possibility of mutiny by the Hindus in their military, and not because of Gandhi. That is why Modi has put Bose’s huge statue in Delhi recently.
I request Vedic temples’ to influence politics or people by sharing Vedic teachings from the scriptures, and talk about those who acted per Dharma principle and influenced politics positively, e. g. Krishna, Buddha, Rishabdev, etc.
Krishna acted per this Vedic teaching अहिंसा परमो धर्मः। धर्म हिंसा तथैव च ॥ When Arjun, out of compassion, said he does not want to fight, Krishna convinced him that he must fight per his Kshatriya Dharma. Therefore, in any Vedic temple-events to assert Hindus’ political presence in the USA, they should talk about Krishna and the supreme principles, and not Gandhi because Gandhi was not a Vedic authority or God.
Below are more facts to forget Gandhi, and remember and talk about Krishna and Bhagavad Gita.
So, I request temple leaders to not talk about Gandhi, but talk about Vedic dharma personalities and Vedic Dharma principles to influence politics in the USA or anywhere.
Below link has many articles in support of what I wrote above.
Remember that a majority decision of a Hindu group cannot change the eternal Dharma principles, and no decision should go against Dharma principles.
Dharma is only one, and it is all inclusive and universal, the सनातन धर्म .
Islam is an exclusive asuric desert मजहव, and Christianity is an exclusive religion.
