Summary of speech by RSS Sarasanghachalak at Gujarat’s Karyakarta Shivir on January 04, 2015.

Respected Sarkaryavaha ji, respected Kshetra Sanghachalak ji, respected Prant Sanghachalak ji, respected Prant Saha Sanghachalak ji, respected Prant Karyavaha ji, gentlemen, mothers and sisters present on the occasion, and my beloved Swayamsevak bandhus,

The issues we see today is due to the disregard and continued neglect of Dharma.  Maharaj ji said that there are many ways to describe as to what Dharma is. I was studying in the 10th standard. We had a text book on Physics. Schooling was in our mother tongue and hence the book was in Marathi. The book was on ‘General Properties of Matter’. The book was named as ‘Saamaanya Vastu Dharm’. Topics like the properties and behavior of fire, electricity, etc were in the book. Here the behavior was referred to as ‘Dharm’. The word Dharm is also used to refer to one’s duties like ‘Putr Dharm’: the duty of a son towards his father, ‘Raj Dharm’: duty of a king towards his subjects. Such duties are referenced to as Dharm. Dharm is also defined as that which enables happiness in this world and also in the afterlife. That which unites all, uplifts everyone and that which sustains everything is also called as Dharm.

Due to the neglect of Dharm, the whole world today is in distress. The exhibition here has a presentation which provides information on environmental issues facing the entire world. World over there have been conflicts whenever two extremist views confront each other. The world is engulfed in such problems not just today but since the last 2000 years. The world has also experimented with various solutions to these problems. Some of these solutions were based on faith in god and some tried to find solution without it. Finally when science came in handy, efforts were made to find solutions to the problems using it. But the situation today is that despite such efforts everyone feels despondent. Thinkers world over today are reiterating that a new solution is now required. While they suggest new ways they also stress on the fact that they will have to approach Bharath for any lasting solution. This is because of the fact that Bharath has always provided peaceful and lasting solutions to the world in the past and has adhered to Sanatan Dharm and has never infringed on other rights, despite being powerful and prosperous. It is because of Bharat’s contribution in the past that the thinkers, since the past 100 years, are looking towards us for a solution.

This is also the duty of Bharat.This is a dictum to us Bharateeyas from our culture.एतत्देश: प्रसूतस्य सकाशादग्रजन्मन८ । स्वं स्वं चरित्रं शिक्षेरन् पूरिया: सत्-मालवा: | It is the duty of the people born in this land as our is the oldest nation. The thread of tradition and culture that has been alivesince ages is still in practice even to this day. Hence there is an expectation that we provide lessons on life to the world. Now when we look at our own selves, we come across many issues and shortcomings confronting us. But we also get to see a tradition since times immemorial of people sacrificing their entire lives to find solutions whenever the society was confronted with such problems.

Maharaj Ji earlier posed a question as to where the shortcoming was.Even great personalities questioned similarly. In the modern times, after the war of independence in 1857, when noble men who were concerned for the nation deliberated on this, four streams of reasoning emerged. The first reason was that the lack of political awareness and shrewdness among us led to the crisis situation we were in. The second was that of the ‘reformists’ who opined that our society should come out of established customs, practices and adwopt a scientific way of life to solve the problems we faced. The third reasoning that emerged was that we need to go to the roots of the way of life we lead in our civilization and understand its true meaning find out a way to serve the last of the destitute and build a new society. Many saints from Swami Dayanand Saraswati till Swami Vivekananda contributed in finding a solution in this stream of thought. The other stream of thought was to pick up arms and drive the British out. All those who worked in one of these streams put their entire life at stake to pursue their stream of reasoning. But each of them used to think as to where the shortcomings were.

Dr. Hedgewar, founder of RSS was in contact of many of the great people who pursued these different streams of thought. It was then that he came to a conclusion that until such time that each and every person in the nation feels that this nation is his/hers, till then Bharat cannot become a ‘vishwa guru’ again. It was to overcome these shortcomings that Doctor Ji came up with the tool called ‘Shakha’ where the feeling of patriotism would be instilled. The ‘Shakha’ was a simple tool where people would congregate at a place for one hour daily and indulge in inspiring mental and physical activities which would inculcate the sense of bonding and oneness.

Everyone should work for the cause of the Hindu nation and Hindu society because this nation has been a Hindu nation by long standing tradition. This is not something that Sangh created. If the Hindu society comes under threat in Bharat, even Bharat would be in danger. The Sangh is working with a goal of organizing the Hindu society and making it powerful. Sangh will continue to work till this goal is achieved. After working for this many decades, people are gradually understanding Sangh and its work. Sangh aims to develop such men of character who would embrace the entire society as their own.

Sangh is a nationalistic organization and works to instill the sense of patriotism in the citizens. Seeing Sangh from outside will do no good. Hence people should come and experience Sangh from inside and become active participants only if they are convinced. It is not that only men get trained in Sangh. There is the Rashtreeya Sevika Samiti which runs Shakhas for the training of women exclusively.

So come, get trained and work towards the good of the nation. Select any task that is in the interest of the society and works towards achieving the same. With this appeal I end my address.

4 जनवरी, कर्णावती राष्ट्रीय स्वयं सेवक संघ-गुजरात द्वारा आयोजित त्रिदिवसीय कार्यकर्ता शिविर -20015  समापन समारोह के मुख्य अतिथि पू. स्वामी सदानंद सरस्वती जी महाराज (श्री शारदा पीठ, द्वारिका, गुजरात ) ने अपने उद्बोधन में कहाँ कि भारत की अखंडता, विविधता आदि की रक्षा तभी हो सकती हैं जब हमें भारत पर स्वाभिमान हों. आज इतिहास को तोड़ मरोड़ कर पेश किया जा रहा है. उन्होंने कहाँ की धर्मांतरण से सिर्फ हिन्दू ही पीड़ित क्यों है ? हिन्दू का ही धर्मान्तरण अधिक किया गया है. धर्मांतरण एक राष्ट्रीय मुद्दा है हम सब को एक हो का इसके लिए संघर्ष करना होगा। भटका हुआ यदि अपने धर्म में वापस आता है तो हो हल्ला मच जाता है. वास्तव में धर्मान्तरित होने वाले को यह ज्ञान ही नहीं होता की वह किस धर्म में जा रहा हैं. स्वामीजी ने कहाँ गौ माता की रक्षा होनी चाहिए, सामान सिविल कोड पर गंभीर विचार होना चाहिए.

इस अवसर पर अपने उद्बोधन ​प. पू. सरसंघ चालकजी  मा. श्री मोहनजी भागवत ने कहाँ की सम्पूर्ण जगत में जो समस्याए दिखती हैं.​ वो धर्म की उपेक्षा के कारण हैं. धर्म की अनेक व्याख्या की गयी है जैसे धर्म यानि स्वभाव, धर्म यानि कर्तव्य, धरम यानि इस लोक से उस लोक तक, धर्म यानि सबको ऊपर उठाने वाला सबकी धारणा करने वाला यहाँ प्रदर्शनी में पर्यायवरण की समस्या देखने को मिलती है, इसके अलावा आंतकवाद है, गरीबी जैसी अनेक समस्याय ये सभी समस्याए धर्म की उपेक्षा के कारण है. आज स्थिति ऐसी है की हरेक को रास्ता चाहिए और इस स्थिति में सबको भारत के पास आना होगा। सनातन मूल्यों के आधार पर भारत के पास से सीख लेनी चाहिए ऐसा विश्व के चिंतक कहते हैं. भारत परम वैभव संपन्न, शक्तिशाली था, भारत को पहले विश्वगुरू के नाम से जाना जाता था और वह दुनिया का नेतृत्व करता था। उस समय दुनिया में शांति होती थी। उन्होंने हिंदू समाज को और मजबूत करने का आवाहन करते हुए कहा कि इस पवित्र कार्य के लिए पूरे हिंदू समाज को एक करना होगा।

श्री मोहनजी ने कहाँ की हमारे देश में अनेक समस्याए रही है, अनेक कमियां भी थी और है इन सब समस्याओ से जूझने वाले अनेक महापुरष भी इस देश में हुए है. इन महापुरषो ने जब इन समस्याओ पर विचारमंथन किया तो उसमे से चार विचारधारी निकली 1. राजनैतिक जाग्रति 2. रूढ़ि कुरीतियों से मुक्त करना 3. परंपराओं के मूल तक जाकर उनको यथार्थ समझकर उनका निराकरण करना 4. शास्त्र लेकर पहले अंग्रेजो को भगाओ सब ठीक हो जायेगा। इन चारो धाराओ के महापुरष प्रमाणिकता को दांव पर लगाकर काम करते रहे लेकिन सब के मन में यह प्रश्न आता था की क्या कमी रही. उस समय संघ स्थापक डॉ साहब इन सभी विचारधराओ के महापुरषो के संपर्क में आये और इस निष्कर्ष पर पहुंचे की जब तक यह सारा देश मेरा अपना है ऐसा लगे यह भावना जागृत करनी होगी जबतक यह नहीं होता तबतक हम पुनः विश्व गुरु नहीं बन सकते। इन सभी कमियों को दूर करने के लिए डॉ साहब ने शाखा नमक कार्यपद्धत्ति शुरू की जिसमे देशभक्ति की भावना जगाने के लिए शाखा नामक तंत्र का उपयोग किया जिसमे एक सरल कार्यपद्धत्ति 1 घंटा मैदान में एकत्रित आना प्रेरणा देने वाले संस्कार बनाने वाले सीधे साधे शारीरिक व् बौद्धिक कार्यक्रमों को करना। हिन्दू देश, हिन्दू समाज के लिए कार्य करना क्योकि यह देश परम्परा से हिन्दू देश है संघ ने हिन्दू नही बनाया। भारत में अगर हिन्दू समाज खतरे मैं आता है तो भारत खतरे मैं आएगा। संघ हिन्दू समाज को संगठित, शक्तिशाली बनाने का कार्य लेकर चला है और और उसके पुरे होते तक काम करता रहेगा। इतने वर्षो तक कार्य करने के बाद अब धीरे धीरे लोगो को संघ समझ में आ रहा है. संघ ऐसे चरित्रवान लोगो को खड़ा करना चाहता है जो सम्पूर्ण समाज को अपना समझ का गले लगाय.

भागवत ने कहा कि संघ राष्ट्र निर्माण करने वाला संगठन है और देश के लोगों में राष्ट्रवाद की भावना भर रहा है। उन्होंने कहा कि संघ को बाहर से देखने से काम नहीं चलेगा और लोगों को पहले अंदर से इसे देखना चाहिए और अगर सही लगे तो उसका सदस्य बनना चाहिए। ​महिलाओ के प्रशिक्षण के लिए राष्ट्र सेविका समिति की शाखा चलती है. तो आइये प्रशिक्षण लेकर देश की हित में , समाज के हित में कोई एक काम को चुनकर कार्य कीजिए इस विनंती के साथ श्री मोहनजी ने अपना वक्तवय पूरा किया.
