GUEST AS GOD


Strange, paradoxical, but it is a fact that those who work for the well being of all, by searching secrets of life and matter, those who watch the future and warn the society for corrective actions and prepare them for finding passage and space in disaster, generally do not take care of themselves.

Society at large, seeing the sanity and serenity of such strange and strong committed internal work for external well being of all, started respecting such persons as deity, and took collective and conceptual decision to take care of them. Society further observed that the very presence of such persons reverberate the place they live in or they visit, and bring healthy and happy vibes in these places.

By virtue of service and effect of its presence, everybody starts praying for its visit at his/her place, and when visited all persons bound to offer highest respect possible to such deity (conscious scientist, Brahmin-who know Brahma) e.g. king offering his seat/throne. Timings of these visits used to be so uncertain as that of death, and so the saying started Atithi Devo Bhava (whose dates are not known, such are deity), and in a way started equating with ‘Dharma Raj/Yam Raj’ the master of death-who brings new life in a new body. Dharma Raj says, ‘Have new body’, and the knower of secrets (the conscious keeper Brahmin) says, ‘Have new life’, which we call a second birth-Dwij (same term like ‘Gauna’- second marriage).

With such an understanding visits of these got highest respects possible; food or any other requirement of this class was not a problem and should not be to think of. Unfortunately, after ‘Buddha’, demand of such a respect was swollen. The new entity not having the same strength and wisdom, caused respect for this class to deteriorate, and created the problem of differentiating real and unreal Brahmin for novice. Though the doubt have crropped up and are growing but still entire east have tremendous respect for guests. Intruders, thieves, dacoits, cheaters, looters are not guest and to be prevented with wisdom and force. Government will have to follow the same norms in its working and encourage the society to follow the same.

Beggars are not guests and not to be offered alms, but Lunger’s (community feast) doors have to be shown to such. Community Lunger will have to be encouraged and supported by government initially by direct contribution and then indirectly by reducing taxes.

Route to charity by international society to various religious institutions will have to be stopped Religious institutions need to develop self-sustenance by doing various community services.
