Formula for solving injustice
The Vedic wisdom of the ‘Sri Isopanisad’ offers a spiritual solution for solving all of the problems of injustice and poverty within today’s world. It contains a formula for world peace. We see in today’s society that 85.6% of global wealth is situated in the hands of 8.6% of people; which just goes to show the prevalence of poverty and injustice within today’s world. This figure shows how world governments are failing to find suitable solutions to solve these issues, in order to address this problem head on. The Sri Isopanisad reveals that this phenomenal world is in fact complete in itself and that it’s source is the Complete Whole (Isvara or God). This Complete Whole is perfect and self-sufficient.
The Universe is but a combination of Material elements, arranged in such a way to produce everything necessary for the maintenance of the Universe. However, due to our ignorance of the complete arrangement in nature for our maintenance, we make extraneous efforts to utilize the resources of nature for creating a life of sense-enjoyment. The Sri Isopanisad outlines that our sense of how something is lacking in this world is illusory. If we but have the eyes to see the hand of God, we will come to understand that there is no scarcity in this world whatsoever.
The ‘Sri Isopanisad’ emphasizes that human life is a life of responsibility because everything in this world belongs to God. A person should accept only things that are set aside by nature as his quota. This is the law of nature. We can see how various other species of life are following this law by taking only what they need. Human greed should be approached and controlled through the wisdom of the Vedas. The Vedas give us a deep and proper understanding of how to act in this world. Spiritual knowledge empowers individuals and within this wisdom, there is a peace formula from which the whole world can benefit.
