RASHTRIYA SWAYAMSEWAK Sangh (RSS) Sar Sanghchalak KC Sudershan on Sunday highlighted the significance of religion, based on spiritualism, in the era of violence and intolerance.
Addressing as main speaker on the concluding day of the two-day Dharma Sanskriti Sangam, KC Sudershan elaborated the relevance of religions based on spiritualism in the present world.
“Though India saw the rise and fall, it sustained every type of onslaught,” he said and added, “spiritualism and non-violence has been the guiding force for us.” “Spiritual power,” he said, “is immortal but materialistic forces meet their nemesis.”
He cited the instance of several countries that saw many ups and downs, but India, he said, withstood all such challenges due to its spiritual power. He delved deep into the relation between mankind and nature and emphasised the need for maintaining ecological balance.
“The human beings need to consume natural resources as per their requirements,” he said, adding, “Desire to dominate also contributes to the ecological imbalance.”
Explaining the need for relevance of non-violence in the present era, Sudershan said some religions believed in taking recourse to violence as the means to get things done. This is a dangerous trend,” he added.
He apprehended another war-like situation hovering over the sky with massive death and destruction. Jayendra Saraswati, Shankaracharya of Kanchi Kamkoti Peeth spoke on the occasion.
