THE UNIVERSAL RELIGION

THE UNIVERSAL RELIGION

 Why have so many wars been fought in the name of Religion?

 How can we eradicate the extremists of all religions?

IS IT THE BLIND FAITH OF EXTREMISM?

The answer is to teach young people about Humanity and Spirituality (Universal Religion). The author Devidas (Dev) Tahiliani has written the following book to be adopted as a textbook in high schools all over the world. He understands that Reading, Writing, Science and Math are important to survive in this world, but the training of young minds to Live and Let Live under One G-O-D (Generator, Operator And Destroyer) is also important for the survival of humanity.

There is a huge hole in the heart of all our education systems. It is where the skills and abilities of self-management should be. No one teaches children as to how to manage their thoughts, feelings, attitudes and behavior, so they find it hard to manage the Four Rs – Relationships, Roles, Responsibilities and Resources.

 Our world today is dominated by religions that require blind faith and obedience.Humans will continue to abuse each other until we understand that we share a responsibility to ourselves and to each other. The power of our inner spirituality is called Humanism.

We can each follow our own path and share our faith with others without Hatred, Scorn, or violence, and accept other paths as equally valid to our own. It is good to have some kind of faith, but we must follow it with reason.

Following was Dev’s motivation to write a book:-

Devidas (Dev) Tahiliani was 7 years old when India got independence in 1947, and the country was divided by religioninto Hindu India and Muslim Pakistan. Dev was born in Pakistan area. His parents being Hindu had to leave their property (Land & Buildings) and become refugees in India.

Decades later Dev personally felt the destruction of the 9/11, 2001 attacks on World Trade Center, because he was working as project manager for The Port Authority of NY&NJ (PA/NYNJ), across the river from WTC. PA/NYNJ lost about 86 workers, including some of Dev’s friends. This resulted in his Heart attack in January 2002 and Dev had to undergo quintuple bypass surgery. He then spent time sitting at home and wondering what prompted extremists to act. He started reading religious books and collecting material.

Dev retired from PA/NYNJ in 2012 and before settling in Natick MA, close to his five grand children, he was living in Boston close to where Marathon Bombing took place in April 2013. That attack prompted him to quickly finish his newly released book.

Our whole world at present revolves around Body Consciousnessand no one cares for Soul Consciousness. That is why less and less people go to religious places everyday. Everything we teach in our schools is about building your career, as to how to earn money and take care of your body; and the spiritual teachings are left to the local churches, temples, and mosques, where the extremists take advantage and brain wash the children with their ideas.

Our children spend dozen years in school, then go on to college or professional training for several more; they work out at the gym to stay healthy; they spend a lot of time enhancing their comfort, their wealth and their social status. They put a great deal in to all this and yet they do so little to improve the inner conditionthat determines the very quality of their lives. What strange hesitancy, fear or apathy stops them from looking within them, from trying to grab the true essence of joy and sadness, desire and hatred? Fear of the unknown prevails and the courage to explore that inner world fails at the frontier of their mind. In pinning all their hopes on the external world, however, they can only end up being disappointed.

When we speak of the role of faith in cross-cultural conflict resolution, our challenge is to honor the diversity of the world’s humanistic and spiritual traditions while seeking common ground among them, that common ground is that we are all same GOD’s creation, he is our Generator, Operator and Destroyer.What we need is an agenda for research, dialogue and activism that is global in conception and responsive to common challenges of peacemaking and coexistence within and among the world’s many traditions.

Education of the masses about different religions is the key in resolving conflicts. With Guns and Bombs you can kill terrorists, but with education of Universal Religion (Humanity and Spirituality) you can kill the terrorism.

GOD VS. SCIENCE

GOD VS. SCIENCE: – There are two great debates under the broad heading of the God vs. Science. Can Darwin evolution withstand the criticism of Christians who believe that it contradicts the creation account in the book of Genesis? In recent years creationism took on new currency as the spiritual originator of “intelligent design “ (ID), a scientifically worded attempt to show that blanks in the evolutionary narrative are more meaningful than its very convincing totality.

Science and religion – far from being complementary responses to the unknown, are at utter odds. We humans want to cheer on science’s strides and still humble ourselves on the faith. We want access to both MRIs and miracles. We want debates about issues like stem cells without conceding that the positions are so intrinsically hostile as to make discussions fruitless. We seek those who possess religious conviction but also scientific achievements to credibly argue the widespread hope that science and God are in harmony – that indeed Science is of God.

The question of whether there exists a supernatural creator, a GOD, is one of the most important that we have to answer. God cannot be completely contained within nature, and therefore God’s existence is outside of science’s ability to really weigh in. For centuries the most powerful argument for God’s existence from the physical world was the so-called argument from design: living things are so beautiful and elegant and so apparently purposeful, an intelligent designer could only have made them. But the Darwin provided a simpler explanation. His way is gradual incremental improvement starting from very simple beginnings and working up step by tiny incremental step to more complexity, more elegance, and more adaptive perfection. By being outside of nature, God is also outside of space and time. Hence at the moment of creation of the universe, God could also have activated evolution, with full knowledge of how it would turn out.

The gravitational constant, if it were off by one parting a hundred million, then the expansion of the universe after the big bang would not have occurred in the fashion that was necessary for life to occur. When one looks at that evidence, it is very difficult to adopt that view that this was just a chance. But if one is willing to consider the possibility of a designer, this becomes a rather plausible explanation for what is otherwise an exceedingly improbable event – namely our existence. God is the answer to all of those “How it must have come to be” questions.

We humans can ask, such as “Why am I here? “What happens after we die?” “Is there a God?” If you refuse to acknowledge their appropriateness, you end up with a zero probability of God after examining the natural world because it does not convince one on the proof basis. But if your mind is open about whether God might exist, one can point to aspects of the universe that are consistent with that conclusion. To a medieval peasant, a radio would have seemed like a miracle. All kinds of things may happen, which we by the lights of today’s science would classify as miracle just as medieval science might think of a Boeing 747.

From the perspective of believer, once you buy in to the position of faith, then suddenly you find yourself losing all of your natural skepticism and your scientific credibility. The scientific instincts of some scientists are less rigorous than others. The difference is that for some scientists the presumption of the possibility of God and therefore the supernatural is not zero. Faith is not the opposite of reason. Faith rests squarely upon reason, but with the added component of revelation. There are answers that science is not able to provide about the natural world – the questions about why instead of the questions about how. We find many of these answers in the spiritual realm. If there is God, it’s going to be a whole lot bigger and a whole lot more incomprehensible than anything that any theologian of any religion has ever proposed. While physics and mathematics may tell us how the universe began, they are not much use in predicting human behavior because there are far too many equations to solve.

HUMAN MIND IN ISOLATION

Please watch the Movie PANDEMIC 2007 through U-tube or Netflix, to see how the 5 big enemies (Desire, Anger, Greed, Attachments & Ego) are created by human beings.

Silence, happiness, love and blessings are important aspects. Happiness leads to good health. It is only you who can give this medicine to yourself. Some bring illness to themselves through anger, greed, unfulfilled desires, expectations, sup- pression of feelings and relationships not based on true love. Look in your heart; you will know where your illness comes from. There are three ingredients for a long and healthy life: live with attention but without worry; use time in a worth- while way; keep your thoughts pure, positive and filled with strength during this Pandemic.

HOW FEELING OF GRATITUDE BREED HAPPINESS AND WELL-BEING

HOW FEELING OF GRATITUDE BREED HAPPINESS AND WELL-BEING: –
If you need another reason to give thanks at the dinner table, how’s this: people who maintain an “attitude of gratitude” tend to be happier and healthier than those who don’t. Adults who feel grateful have more, than who do not, according to studies conducted over the past decade. They’re also less likely to be depressed, envious, greedy or alcoholics.

One research has found that grateful students reported higher grades, more life satisfaction, better social integration and less envy and depression than their peers who were less thankful and more materialistic. Additionally, feelings of gratitude had a more powerful impact on the students’ lives overall than materialism. Gratitude should be chronic in order to reap all of its benefits.

Feeling gratitude must be ingrained into your personality, and you must fre- quently acknowledge and be thankful for the role other people play in your happiness.

For older children and adults, one simple way to cultivate gratitude is to literally count your blessings. Keep a journal and regularly record whatever you are grateful for that day. Be specific. The real benefit comes in changing how you experience the world. Look for things to be grateful for, and you’ll start seeing them.

Studies show that using negative, derogatory words — even as you talk to yourself — can darken your mood, as well. Fill your head with positive thoughts, express thanks and encouragement aloud and look for something to be grateful for, not criticize, in those around you, especially loved ones.

SELF REALIZATION FOR FAITH

SELF REALIZATION FOR FAITH: –

The closer we are to the center of circle, the closer we are to the common ground in which all the radii meet; and the farther we are from the center, the more divergent is our radial line from others.

The external world is only one part of the whole of phenomena. There are other parts: the mental, the moral and the intellectual – the various planes of existence – and to take only one part and find a solution of the whole is simply impossible. Therefore we have to find a center where all the planes of existence start. Now where is that center? It is within us. The ancient sages penetrated deeper and deeper until they found that in the inner most core of the Human Soul is the center of the whole universe.

Matter is only an infinitesimal part of the phenomenal universe. Actually in every moment of our day-to-day life, great part is played by Thought and Feeling than the Material phenomena outside. Materialistic people think that the whole phenomena are only in touch, taste, sight, hearing and smell, but in fact it is deep inside you in your thoughts and feelings.

Those who are evildoers, whose minds are not peaceful, can never see the light. It is to those who are true in heart, pure in deed, whose senses are controlled, that self manifests itself. This is self-realization. If the power to satisfy our desires increases in arithmetical progression, our desires increase in geometrical progression.

This world is nothing but a shadow of reality. We must go to reality. Renun- ciation will take us there. Renunciation is the very basis of our true life. Every moment of goodness and real life that we enjoy is when we do not think of ourselves. This little separate must die. Then we shall find that we are in the Real, and that Reality is GOD, and he is our own true nature, and he is always in us and with us. Let us live in him and stand in him; it is the only joyful state of existence. Life on the plane of the spirit is the only life. Let us all try to attain to this realization.

Wherever there are business and business principles in religion, spirituality dies. Religion does not consist in erecting temples or building churches or attending public worship. It is not to be found in books or in words or in lectures or in organizations, Religion consists in realization. We all know as a fact that nothing will satisfy us until we realize the truth by ourselves. However we may argue, however much we may hear, but one thing will satisfy us, and that is our own realization, and such experience is possible for everyone of us, if we will only try. The first idea in this attempt to realize religion is that of renunciation. As far as we can, we should give up. Darkness and Light, enjoyment of the materialistic world and enjoyment of GOD, will never go together.

GOD exists or not: –
We have to analyze our own souls and find what is there. We have to understand it and realize what is understood. That is Religion. So the question of whether there is GOD or not can never be proved by argument; for the arguments are as much on one side as on the other. But if there is GOD, he is in our own hearts.

The turmoil and fight and difference in religions will cease only when we understand that religion is not in books and temples, it is in actual perception. Only the man who has actually perceived GOD and the SOUL is religious. We are all atheists, and yet we try to fight the man who admits being one. We are all in the dark; religion is to us mere intellectual assent, mere talk, and mere nothing. Religion begins only when actual realization begins in our souls.

Faith in Oneself: –

The new religion says that he is the atheist who does not believe in himself. But it is not selfish faith; it is the doctrine of Oneness. It means faith in all because you are all. Love for you means love for all. – Love for animals, love for everything; for you are all. This is the great faith, which will make the world better. You know little of that which is within you, for behind you is the ocean of infinite power and blessedness.

Hear day and night that you are that Soul. Repeat it to yourself day and night till it enters in to your veins, till it tingles every drop of blood, till it is in your flesh and bone. Let the whole body be full of that one idea: “I am the birth-less, the death-less, the blissful, the omniscient, the omnipotent, ever glorious SOUL. Then all your actions will be glorified, transformed, deified, by the very power of this thought. If matter is powerful, thought is omnipotent.

GOAL OF THE UNIVERSAL RELIGION

GOAL OF THE UNIVERSAL RELIGION: –

Universal religion can apply to everyone, and that religion must not be composed of only specific parts, but it must always be the sum total and include all degrees of religious development.

We should have a combination of the greatest heart with the highest intellectuality of infinite love with infinite knowledge.

The final attributes to God should be Infinite Existence, Infinite knowledge and Infinite Bliss.

Our Goal should be Harmony of Existence, Knowledge, and Bliss Infinite.

If we take the world as it is then nothing will be left to us but Evil. But there is something beyond this world. The life in five senses, life in the material world is not all, it is only superficial. Behind and beyond is the Infinite, in which there is no more evil. Some people call it GOD, some Brahaman, some Allah, some Jehovah, Jove and so on.

What we really want is head and heart combined.

The goal of every religion is the same, that each is trying to teach the same thing (Self Realization), the difference being largely in the methods and stills more in language. At the core of all sects and of all religions have the same aim; they only quarrel for their own selfish purposes.
