About the Book

The clash of civilisations stems from myriad cause and much is written about these conflicts. Using real life examples, Swami Veda Bharati shows us that universal solutions are found in many cultures, where the majority of humanity remains neutral and applies principles of harmonious living to resolve differences. In what is Right with the World, he leads us on a rediscovery of the perennial peace processes throughout the history of Peace. BY exploring how people everywhere feel about and see each other when they follow the ideals of amity and harmony, Swami Veda gives us a deeper understanding of the idea that respecting diversity is the key to Peace. By exploring how people everywhere feel about and see each other when they follow the ideals of amity and harmony, Swami Veda gives us a deeper understanding of the idea that respecting diversity is the key to Peace.

Introduction

This word gift is a collection of presentations and essays composed from time to time for different conferences and discussions. It is an attempt to define holism and its application in the interpretation and practice of religion, statecraft, education and relationships.

Whatever is presented here is received from the founts of ancient wisdom, with no claim to original discoveries in truth, just a reminder to ourselves that alternative to dissentions and conflicts stand waiting to be beckoned in order to make this planet a harmonious unity and entity.

This presenter invites all readers to disagree and challenge the theses presented .here. In response to such challenge this author would like to bring to mind a paragraph from the Preface titled "Where the Mind is without Fear", as follows:

Dissenters and disputants will learn the art of merger of diverse faces of truth, each one learning to stand where the opponent stood and shall espouse the other’s cause against one’s own.

In other words, by taking the opponent’s side, I hope to complete for myself the truth left incomplete in these writings. May all opposites in the universe be seen as complementary and thus help to complete us who are yet incomplete beings in spiritual evolution.

I would like to add a note on the choice of the title and subtitle of this book. One may ask why what is Right with the World. My answer is that what is wrong with the world is a very popular complaint of many persons. We need to look on the positive side of life and recognize those things that are going "right". As far as the subtitle, I would like to say that I have decided to use the word "urge" instead of "yearning" or any other such words, because the natural urge to peace is an almost instinctive nature of the human. Yearning is not the same as an instinctive urge.

"Give way to your natural human urges; the urge to give, the urge to share, the urge to make sacrifice for others; the urge to knowledge - the natural urge to peace."

It is my hope that after reading this book we will have a greater understanding not only of what is right with the world, but how the beauty of that right is ready to be applied to beautify what has taken onan ugly appearance.

I have often said that as we grow spiritually, the sense in which we use words changes. People think we are speaking with a meaning that they attribute to the word but we are saying something entirely different, for example, the word "urge" is often used in the sense of base urges, but sublime urges are forgotten. Here, we use the word referred to as one of the sublime urges.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
