Vedic roots of absolute power

Absolute power, that which Vedic seers like Kautilya, Bhartrihari, and Bhardwaj taught, is that which makes a man brave and fearless. In the presence of fear, there can seldom be any enduring power.

Moles and Mentors: Utility of the saffron-clad in ancient Vedic India

Jealousy – the greatest slayer of wisdom and wealth

Jealousy is detrimental. It’s a travesty that our education systems preaches it to be almost otherwise. Since our education system is based on the logic of comparing achievement of one with another it in significant way harnesses it at every step of the way. When we see that someone is doing better than us – we first begin by being jealous of them and we do things to prove them otherwise. We cheat, use deceit and retort to almost anything without letting wisdom prevail. Jealousy may make us to do ultimate damage to our adversaries - once; but every moment we carry this jealousy in our mind – we are a living hell.

Fear is the worst enemy of humanity. It is a tool of the despots for restraining and subjugating their victims. It’s also the ultimate deception. Most of the time fear itself is worse than the object of fear. Ignorance is the root of fear. According to the rishis, it’s only through right knowledge, or Jnana, and wisdom, or Vijnana – that we can free ourselves from fear. Any texts which instill fear in us are verily manifestation of ignorance and are not Vedic. And it’s better to ignore or best to forget any books that harps on instilling fear in our minds. To revere them is to invite our peril.
