The Global History of Socialism: An Ideology Born to Perish

Socialism was once regarded as a new faith for skeptical age. A faith that promised a world of harmony and abundance - if only - "the property was shared by all and distributed equally. " The idea of socialism had spread farther and faster than any other political idea in history. Yet, almost in a blink of an eye, it all collapsed like a pack of cards. In this article, U. Mahesh Prabhu traces the history of Socialism and its offshoots, including Communism, Fascism & Maoism, which were apparently based on "absolute science and thought."

Vedic Management, we teach at Vedic Management Center, is on the foundations of Yoga & Ayurveda. The idea is to create leaders. To lead, you will need a happy mind and a healthy body.

Bhakti versus Bhranti: Devotion versus Delusion

Bhakti seeks unconditional acceptance of everyone, without any conditions. Bhranti seeks conditional submission. Bhakti gives love; Bhranti often confuses one’s lust for love. Bhakti helps in sustenance – within and without; Bhranti destroys within. Bhakti stems from within in the absence of fear; Bhranti arises and harps on suspicion of the self as well as others. Bhakti seeks solitude; Bhranti yearns for adoration.

Dhyana & Prarthana: Why Meditation is not Praying

Dhyana or Meditation and Prarthana or Prayer are never the same. Prarthana is a concept in which you declare yourself to be weak as well as helpless and, therefore, you seek help from someone else - earthlings or God(s). Dhyana or Meditation is where you accept that for all the pains in life you alone are accountable, that you alone can clean the mess you create. Meditation is about seeking solutions from within. You must be a theist to pray, but even an atheist can meditate.

Understanding Economy from the Vedic Perspective of Karma

In Vedic (or ancient) India, kings and their counsellors were first taught Artha Sutras, which, in very simple terms, explained complex connections between people’s pursuit of happiness, good conduct, the meaning and relevance of well-earned wealth, it’s relativity to governance, and the best suitors to hold key positions in government, and the like. In simple terms, these Sutras, or axioms, explained the connection between economics, politics, and diplomacy. That was also because, unless an individual understands those three subjects, it’s virtually impossible to understand a leader’s role, let alone deliver on it effectively.

Vedic origins of Rationalism

Does Vedic literature, starting from the Vedas, Aranyakas, Upanishads, Ramayana, Mahabharata, up until Arthashastra, qualify as “religious” scriptures?

A Myth called “Artificial Intelligence”

We’ve created machines that help us perform our tasks better and faster. These machines, like mobile phones, are being called “smart.” But smartness stems from intelligence – the myth that “brain is intelligence” has already been proved incorrect. We don’t understand the brain either, leave alone intelligence. Given this, how can we even claim to have created something about which we’ve no substantial knowledge of? How can we understand our mind and intelligence to recreate it artificially? U. Mahesh Prabhu writes more.
