Few more things to say

At the end of night and beginning of new day, I would like to say few more words as a continuation of my previous post after discussing with friends in wordpress and other friends.

Our morals, our spirituality, our knowledge have to support the righteousness and should never never support crime. Punishment is not an evil. Haven’t we got punished as children by our parents and teachers. It is for correcting us, not with the motive to hurt us. When we view punishments from that point, it’s a method of correction and prevention of further crime. Like few of you suggested raising human consciousness is needed, true. I humbly suggest every method should be used to stop and prevent crime. Our spiritual/non-violent methods should never directly or indirectly support crime. We are not condemning a person out of revenge here. We are trying to stop and prevent the crime…

In certain cases, non-violence and counseling only doesn’t work. Such methods work for persons who feel remorseful about what he/she had done. For those who do cruel crimes, strong punishments should be given according to the level of cruelty they had done. Try to realize you can’t never change a Wolf to a rabbit (animal nature to pure satvic nature). We can wish everyone to be enlightened, pure, but we can’t expect. It’s all personal and unique. Even if we provide everything, only with personal effort, one can change.

  1. Yes, absolutely. It happens within oneself with one’s willingness to change and one’s understanding of need for that change. Other factors can only support and influence.

  2. So true. I have told my adult children many times a similar analogy about “Try to realize you can’t never change a Wolf to a rabbit (animal nature to pure satvic nature). We can wish everyone to be enlightened, pure, but we can’t expect. It’s all personal and unique. Even if we provide everything, only with personal effort, one can change.” I say we cannot make a dog a cat. Cats will be cats. Dogs will be dogs. It’s that living being’s true nature. Though some cats can bark like dogs, they are still cats. ❤️🦋🌀🙏☮️

    1. Thank you dear Sheila 😊🙏💕 And also, for the wolf and wolf kingdom, wolf’s nature is absolutely normal, but for rabbit and other animals which are prey for wolf, wolf’s nature is cruel. It’s all actually play of divine. We too are playing our part in different ways. At some point, when we observe certain things, we feel them not normal, not righteous, and we act out according to our naturally instincts. Our motive will be genuine and for highest good of all beings, but during our actions, we unconsciously hurt some people to bring back the righteousness, to protect ourselves, to protect our dear ones. Path of dharma won’t always bring justice to both sides. One side always has to face consequence of karma he/she had done whoever it is. That consequence maybe highly unfair to that particular person.

    1. Yes dear. In order to regain righteousness and to stop violence, punishments are given, not mere advice. In rare cases like that of Angulimala and Buddha, transformation of criminal happens, but very very few. For others, non-violent methods won’t work. We all can say theories, but when something happen to us, to our dear ones, how many of us can hold on to those theories and learnings. Our morals, spirituality, knowledge should never ever support injustice to grow. If we are completely detached and renounced, we won’t react to anything, but till then it’s quite natural for us to react in our own ways. It may appear extreme or cruel or judgmental to few people, it doesn’t matter. So I wrote this openly for their understanding. I couldn’t remain silent in this case.
