Guru Ji on Hindu ideal
To us, family is the first stage of our self-expansion. As a son, as a brother, as a husband or in whatever relationship ,let us uphold the noble Hindu Ideal of a family man. It brings no credit to us if we say, “Oh, I am working for society, why should I bother about the family bonds?”
Again, look at the great ideal characters of our land. Sri Rama, though in his teens, accompanied Vishwamitra to the forest to destroy the Rakshasas according to the bidding of his father. Later, he gladly started for his fourteen years of forest sojourn only to preserve the sanctity of his father’s pledge. As a brother, what an intense affection he bore towards Lakshmana and others! He was an ideal son, an ideal brother, an ideal husband, an ideal friend, an ideal disciple and to his foes an ideal enemy too - all blended in one Ideal Hindu manhood.
