Hitashatru: That mortal enemy we mistake for a dear friend

Jealousy of people is among the many things that come along with success and wealth. And it is by far the most potent threat as it could turn even a dear friend into a deadly enemy. And when that enemy continues to pose as a friend, enjoying proximity to you, (s)he becomes a Hitashatru.

The Vedic Perspective on Criticism

Vedic Sanskrit word for criticism was निन्दा (Ninda.) The criticizer is निन्दक (Nindaka.) Whereas विनिन्दा (Vininda) & विनिन्दक (Vinindaka) stand for Unjust Criticism & Unjust Criticizer. Interestingly, in the languages that followed Vedic Sanskrit, the very word Ninda is synonymous with Vininda. In most Indic languages Ninda is unjust, unwise and is often, incorrectly, defined as अधार्मिक: (Adharmic) or against Dharma. According to the Vedic Rishis, the problem is not with criticism but with our अहंकारं or ego. What if our adversary is to criticize us with abuse but also say a few facts along? Why not only retain the facts and ignore their abuse? It’s incorrect to assume that someone says something, and we felt bad. We feel bad because of our attachment to our sense of ego, which in turn led us to ignore the truth in their words by holding onto their abuses with undeserving emotions.

Vedic Approach to Identifying, Conquering and Transcending Fear: Bhayam, Abhayam & Nirbhayam

Fear is natural. But just because it is natural does not mean it is essential for living. We fear things we do not understand. What we cannot understand we must try to understand. We can never fear the known – fear is always about the unknown.

Satya & Mytha: The Nature of Truth & False

Our Conscious Self, i.e. our own true self, or Aatmana is the place of perpetual stability, whereas everything else is fluctuating and considered Mithya. Even the planets and stars will undergo change and will cease to exist someday but the truth of who we are remains eternal. Operating from an identification of this awareness, that we are Satya at the core of who we are, helps to interact with change without reacting to it for more dynamic and sustainable results.

Why Kootaneeti is Now More Important than Ever?

The Neeti offers Dharmic guidelines for individuals to conduct themselves wisely in a familial, social, organizational, and national setup. Rajaneeti is the Dharmic guidelines for an individual to adhere when in the position of leadership. Rajaneeti is also a Vedic approach to Politics. The objective of Rajaneeti, according to Bhartrihari is also to “… ensure people are persuaded, by all means possible, to understand and follow to Dharma.” When people fail to adhere to these Neetis - they often end up being abusive, corrupt, and dictatorial. This drives that specific society, organization and/or nation in a state of chaos. Recovering such organization from the depth of an abyss with minimal force and maximum intellect is the Vedic Art and Science of Kootaneeti.

Ekaanth: The Power of Solitude

Since time immemorial people have often feared isolation. Nobody likes to live isolated and, therefore, seeks the constant company of people. Solitude is synonymous to loneliness – a lack of feeling that something is missing, a pain, a depression, a need, an incompleteness, an absence. They relate isolation to pitch darkness – a state of disconcertment. What people often forget is that even people can make them lonely. Therefore, various Vedic scriptures suggest, one should learn to establish a friendship with one’s self through Ekaanth and then there’s no way for himself to feel lonely.
