When wisdom prevails then alone one finds oneself eternal in one’s consciousness. Becoming conduit in imparting the same eternal consciousness to one and all is Param-Uattardaayitva (most responsible duty). It is Param-Uattardaayitva because attaining to eternal consciousness is janma-siddha-adhikaar (birthright) of each and every earthling. This right to self-realisation (aatm-saakshaatkaar) must stay intact, even if all ascribed identities are transcended in this process, so be it.
Becoming helpful in attainment of eternal consciousness is the most fulfilling experience for both precisely, ones who become means of helping as well as, the ones who receive help in attaining self-realisation.
In Bharat many guru-shishya parampara (living traditions) have been imparting spiritual transmission since eons. Vedic, Upanishadic, epic, and Puranic period literature have umpteen examples mentioning the continuity of tradition of spiritual transmission. It was not very long ago that Ramakrishna Paramhans, Raman Maharshi, Ramchandra… were discovered by seekers as conduits who imparted spiritual transmission while they were very much living amongst us. But, in numbers, more people know more about living gurus only when they are no more. This is also true that we don’t come to know even that much about our gurus as much would have been possible for us to know because, in whom we as seekers find our guru, they never see themselves as guru. That’s how eternal beauty and purity of this relationship stays sacrosanct, untouched by the false-ego. It is always the prerogative of disciples and initiates alone to acknowledge, reiterate and assert the presence of the living guru so that maximum number of really thirsty hearts are satiated. Spiritual gurus are undoubtedly in unison with one and all as, realising innate union is the first step even at the level of seeking (mumukshutva). Therefore, more the number of attained ones more helpful it proves in spiritual evolution of the individuals, the world and the universe.
And, to facilitate the cause of spiritualisation of the globe devising yogic-Kriya is such a necessity that it would have to be filled by gurus consistently in all times to come. A yogic Kriya suited to all householders in their present-day-life-circumstances is a constant pursuit. It is a constant pursuit because life-circumstances are changing at a fast pace. And after a certain time it becomes necessary to devise path and kriya to accommodate all earthlings. Excellence in the spiritual path is thus attained by individuals. And, pious flame of spiritual fire stays burning in one or the other heart incessantly.
It is the ‘potential-capability’ of yogic transmission of the ones who are destined to become conduit of devising such kriyas that acts as the root force in keeping it efficacious.
Every Upanishad is living evidence that Vedic period seers have given us many ways of tuning to higher consciousness. This manifestation of diversity in terms of paths and, unity/union/unison of destination is key to realise that ultimate openness which is innate to spiritual realisation.
Looking at the world map we find that India is uniquely spiritual motherland. Our varied religious/ethnic backgrounds shouldn’t become a restricting factor in glorifying this spiritual uniqueness. Ideally, it should be a facilitating factor as diversity provides us with ample amount of variety to have a richer dialogue.
It is important that we stay as living example of a society (Rashtra) in which dialogue flourishes. Bravely discarding and demolishing all outside influences which are intended to break Indic self-confidence by demeaning Indic glory or praising barbaric events taking place in the name of religion, race and ethnicity.

None is suggesting that we should become complacent by rejoicing in past achievements. Suggestion is that we should remember our glorious heritage of sanaatan-jeevan-mulya (eternal divine values) and gain that confidence which is a prerequisite to take a quantum leap on the path of progress in the present time.
Every conscientious (naitik) person who lives in a country is bound to be a patriot, isn’t it the minimum civic behaviour anticipated from each one of us? However, our transformation into Rashtra-Bhakt requires higher consciousness, commitment and sacrifice. And, it is not our keeping quiet and speaking selectively that will make one and all transform from patriot to Rashtra-premi but involving ourselves in incessant dialogue will definitely do it. And, Indic Spirituality endowed with eternal consciousness is that elan vital which empowers aforesaid transformation.
