The Wisdom of Kootaneeti for a Polarized World

According to Vedic Rishis and creators of Kootaneeti, it is one thing to have emotions and completely another being emotional. Says Kautilya a.k.a. Chanakya in Arthashastra “A leader without emotions is undesirable, but a leader driven by his emotions is disastrous.” If only we read history, we could learn the validity of these sage words written two millennia ago. Not convinced? Go to YouTube and watch some scintillating speeches by Adolph Hitler. His emotionally churning words driven by lame socialistic ideas galvanized the whole German nation to hate and persecute Jews, mercilessly. The situation is not much different from despots in other parts of the world, either. The worst leaders have often been those who have toyed with people’s emotions.

Stress and Crisis management: The Vedic Approach

Hope and fear are nothing but figments of human imagination. When we fear, we affect our mind in a negative way; when we hope, we seek for viable alternatives. The Vedic thought, however, professes a golden middle path – a state of perfect equilibrium where you are neither worried nor fearful. You are neither happy nor unhappy. Many may wonder, what’s the use of a mind that’s neither joyful nor sorrowful? As a matter of fact, an indifferent mind, in many ways, helps to lead a fruitful life and is in a state of perpetual bliss. Because it knows the eternal truth, that in life neither happiness nor sorrow is forever; it shuns both. It concentrates on work. It seeks to do good things not just for oneself or one’s family, but for the whole world. Yet, it’s detached from the fruits of its action. When the fruit is good, it may be happy but when otherwise, it isn’t bothered much. This uproots all scope for stress or crisis.

The Nature 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. In life, all fears must be uprooted before we make a place for power. Whether power is to be used in material or spiritual pursuits, uprooting the fear is the key.

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

Chanakya devised an advanced system of human intelligence-gathering in which operatives wore saffron to deceive the masses. There were instances when, before sending in the army to raid a village, for example, these pseudo-renunciates were sent first to make a prophecy of doom to create chaos in the minds of the people and the enemy army. Often, such strategies were wonderfully effective since they resulted in surrender without a fight – saving countless innocent lives. Great care was taken to ensure that these saffron-clad people never went rogue, and were closely watched. These saffron-clad spies proved to be an effective weapon in the game of psychological warfare.

The Legend of Rajgurus
