Nagaur (Rajasthan), Mar 14: The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has appealed to every citizen to conduct oneself with ‘Samarasata’ (social harmony) in day-to-day personal, family and societal life on the basis of our eternal and timeless life ideals. This conduct will eradicate caste discrimination, untouchability and mutual distrust from the society, the RSS felt.
This new experience will lead to understanding of ‘our integral and ‘samras’ (harmonious) life free of any exploitation, the RSS resolution on Social Harmony (Samajik Samrasata) adopted at the last day of the three-day Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS) said.
The RSS resolution observed that Bharat is an ancient nation and it has a hoary tradition of thought process. It is our realization and conviction that both the animate and inanimate world are born out of a single element and the same element resides in all the living beings. All the human beings are equal as the same divinity uniformly pervades every being. Rishis, Munis, Saints, Gurus and social reformers have strengthened this truth by their experiences and conduct.
Whenever our social structures and day-to-day conduct remained commensurate with these pre-eminent ideals then Bharat has been an integral, prosperous and invincible nation. When there was erosion in practicing this noble philosophy of life, the society degenerated, a feeling of caste based disparity increased and an inhuman evil like untouchabilty was born, the resolution said.
Nation draws its strength from the society and strength of the society lies in the integrity, spirit and conduct of harmony and fraternity, the RSS observed adding our eternal ideals have the ability to create this. One should have conduct based on affinity, dignity and equality for all others as described in ‘Atmavat Sarvabhooteshu’ (all other beings treated as oneself), 'Adweshta Sarva Bhootanam' (malice towards none) and 'Ek Noor te sab jag upja, Kaun bhaley, kaun mandey' (From that one light the whole world was born, so how one is superior and other inferior?).
Any kind of discriminatory behaviour and evil like untouchability should be uprooted altogether. For the smooth functioning of the society, it is utmost essential that all the social and religious institutions in the society need to steer the course based on our hoary ideals of life, the resolution stressed.
Since time immemorial several great personalities and social reformers of our society have presented an integral view point of the ideal social life to the nation, emphasizing on the changes in the individual and community conduct consistent with time, place and circumstances for the creation of the society based on equality and free of exploitation. Their lives, ideals and actions are forever a source of inspiration to the society.
The ABPS appealed to all the revered saints, preachers, intellectuals and social activists to actively contribute to the enlightenment of the society in this context. The ABPS exhorted all the citizens along with swayamsevaks to maintain a conduct with samarasata and appeals to all the social and religious organizations to make every possible effort to strengthen this feeling of samarasata.
