`Parent’s Worship Day’ – The Turning Point for the Humanity
All people should respect their parents. I want to propagate ‘Parents Worship Day’ widely in India and abroad. Children should greet, respect and worship their parents on this day; and parents should love their children. It will help develop real love. Passion and lust give a bad name to love. There is a big difference between love and lust. Lust is centered in the lower Centers. It gives rise to sexual excitement; and thoughtless gratification of desires. And love is centered in the upper Centers of human body. It makes one thoughtful; and it gives eternal joy.And it helps one behold oneself in all creatures. I don’t want that people only of this country should be elevated. May the whole of humanity be saved from the attack of sexualization (of the society); and go forward on the path of self-restraint and virtue to live a healthy, happy and honorable life; may good come to the whole world; because this (broad mindedness) is what we have inherited. According to the Innocent Report Card issue No.3 at least 1.25 million teenagers become pregnant each year in the 28 OECD nations under review. Out of those, approximately half a million will seek an abortion and approximately three quarters of a million will become teenage mothers. 4,94,357 children are born to teenage mothers each year in America. Every year some 3 million American teenagers contact a sexually transmitted disease (about 1 in every 4 sexually experienced teenagers). In one act of unprotected sex with an infected partner, a teenage woman has 1 in 100 chance of contacting HIV, 1 in 3 chance of contacting genital herpes, and 1 in 2 chance of contacting gonorrhea. Approximately a quarter of all new cases of HIV/AIDS are diagnosed in young people under the age of 22. Today,1 in 3 US high schools has an abstinence only policy on sex education. Since 1996 more than US-$400 million in federal and state funds have been spent on ‘Abstinence Only’ campaigns in America’s schools. (The innocent report card issue No.3 was published in July 2001).-44%’May all be happy.’ I don’t want to refute anybody; but I do want that if one of our brethren has gone astray and is giving a flower to a neighboring girl; thereby losing his right of calling her ‘sister’ and the sister by accepting the flower from him is becoming an object of lust — I do want that such sons and daughters should get proper guidance to come on the right path.`Spread your fragrance like a rose; may the world know you.’ Lead a healthy, happy and honorable life, a life of self-control and virtues. Do not get overwhelmed by the attack of passions and carnal desires. May the good wishes for bringing happiness to yourself and your parents, and self-restraint bring peace and prosperity in your life and in life of those around you.
