 Pune: “Our culture is only one that strives to make humans lead a human life. What we call culture is the tradition of conduct imbibed from generation to generation,” said Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Sarsanghchalak Dr. Mohan Bhagwat.

Sarsanghchalak was speaking at the conclusion ceremony of the Diamond Jubilee of Prasad Prakashan in Pune. Maharashtra’s Minister for Cultural Affairs Sudhir Munguntiwar, veteran Indologist and former Chairman of Deccan College Deemed University Dr. G. B. Deglurkar, Dr. Uma bodas of Prasad Prakashan and authors of the books were present on the dais. Thirteen books by different authors were published by Prasad Prakashan and Anahat Prakashan.

Dr. Mohan Bhagwat said, “Happiness is the aim of human life but the world is split in two currents on what is the meaning of happiness? One stream is that of the world and another is India’s. Many efforts were made to find the answer to this question and a lot of poison has come out of this search. The world is unanimous that India has the capability to digest this poison”

He added, “Thoughts turn to extremity when a searcher does not find results of his search. When we follow the four Purusharthas, stipulated in our culture, then we do not go to any extremity. The world cannot run on dealings only. The world runs on faith in existence. Humans have faith and make others have faith which is why we have a sense of gratitude for everything around us. We deem the river as our mother and our vaidyas used only herbal medicines for ten thousand years but forests did not diminish because they planted ten times what they took. This sense of gratitude is the hallmark of our conduct and it has been passed from generation to generation. What we call culture is this tradition of practice.”.

He said, “Our culture is the only culture that strives to make humans lead a human life. Other cultures look at man as a social animal. Man has to take all along because he is most superior among all beings and to be most superior means having responsibility.”

RSS Sarsanghchalak said, “The outer world keeps changing. Even modern science accepts there is a cycle of creation and destruction in the universe. Our ancestors started searching for answers to this question internally when outer efforts were fruitless.

They found out that the outer world is just a manifestation of one eternal truth. Outer forms change but the internal truth of which it is manifestation doesn’t change. We have to abandon appearances but have to hold on to eternal.”

He lamented that people have unfortunately forgotten this tradition and have developed disbelief. There is the issue of bad conduct also.
