A CHANGE OF ERA OR AN IRREVERSIBLE END OF HUMAN CIVILIZATION ON ANVIL? A VIEW POINT FROM SPIRITUAL AND SCIENTIFIC PERSPECTIVES
PRADEEP CHAUDHRY, SANGEETA CHAUDHRY
Globally, we live in a materialistic culture which obstructs the cultivation and development of human values. Our future, which very intricately depends on moral or ethical values and understanding that a soul takes birth according to resolves (sanskars) which go with it during the whole journey in the world cycle, will be more certain and secure when each of us takes up the challenge to bring values back into our daily lives. Values are linked with meditation as meditation leads to the growth and development of values. God is the sustainer of all souls of all religions, races and cultures. God is also the never ending source of all qualities, virtues, values and wisdom. These treasures are transferred to souls through meditation. Spiritual emptiness causes material desires and many weaknesses in the human soul, whereas spiritual restored brings inner strength and power to the soul. Either transformation of present era or complete annihilation of the world is on the cards in coming years according to two versions of spirituality and science respectively. We have discussed these aspects in this article.
