Enlightenment through Spirituality, Unity and Divinity
Dr. Hariprasad Kanoria, has been working on the theme of Humanity, Power and Spirituality. In fact, he has been struggling to inject these ideas in his students of Business Ethics in SREI, an institution for management courses, established by himself.
Humanity, in its altruistic sense, is nothing but the aggregation of all the best elements of human civilization. ‘Civilization’, said Swami Vivekananda, ‘is the manifestation of divinity in man.’
Power comes not from food, or wealth, or Royal Politics, but from the infinite within. Did Christ and Buddha possess wealth or power? Power or strength comes from the divinity within, says Kena Upanishad – Atmana Vidyate Viryam.
Spirituality is the sources of all power, highest knowledge, deathless life, and infinite bliss. Spirit means anything non-material. Every material object, according to Einstein, is limited by space and time. Everything Spiritual or non-material is therefore infinite in dimension. To awaken the infinite spirit within us is what is called Spirituality or Spiritual Culture. Swamiji insisted that Spiritual Culture brings out the best qualities, even in the depressed, enslaved and demoralized human beings. His immortal word, “Teach every man his own real nature. Goodness will come, glory will come, purity will come, strength will come, and all that is excellent will come when the soul is roused to self-conscious activity”.
To awaken the infinite bliss, consciousness and knowledge among people, Dr. Kanoria has made a long spiritual-intellectual journey along the course of history, right from the days of Upanishads and Gita, through Jainism, Buddhism, Islam, Judaism and Christianity, through the life & message of world teachers like Buddha, Christ, Rama, Krishna, Guru Nanak, and later historic-personalities like Ramakrishna-Vivekananda. Many other spiritual gurus and spiritual teachers have also been included.
Swamiji’s dream was to inject the eternal spiritual ideas in all spheres of life, education, life and business and more so in the ritualistic religions. Dr. H.P. Kanoria is trying to spreads and infuse, in his own way, the three pivotal values of humanity, power and spirituality.
The presence of the Infinite within the finite, the basic interconnectedness of the finite with the infinite, is one of the greatest conclusions of the Quantum Physics. Erwin Schrodinger, Nobel Physicist, has expressed this Upanishadic truth – Atman = Brahman. This eternal truth has been echoed in all spiritual traditions – the finite man contains within himself infinite potentiality of God. Upanishads called it “Aham Brahmasmi”. The Bible says, “The Kingdom of God is within”, or “I and my Father are one”. In the Koran God dispenses the angel Ibliss “as Jin Satan” (fiery devil), because he refused to respect the divinity of Adam. Sufis call this truth “Anal Haque” (I am the truth). Buddha taught that Buddha is not a man. It is a state of Realisation into which everyone can enter.
Spirituality brings unity and interconnectedness of the macrocosm and microcosm, God and man. What is ethics? It springs from a spontaneous acceptance of the basic unity of man & God, man & man, nation & nation, religion & religion. Spirituality brings this unity and enriches humanity with Christ-like power, Buddha-like compassion, Guru Nanak’s devotion to Almighty, Islamic respect to the brotherhood of all followers. This is the lasting way to peace through love and fellow feeling.
Upanishads show us that people who were involved in managements and leadership in society, like kings and soldiers, in spite of extreme business in life, possessed and preached these truths, Dr. Kanoria, himself, a business organiser, and a teacher of management, has now come forward with these ideas in his own way.
