Present World Status
World goes on economic growth at the cost of social progress. Urbanized world goes on at the cost of villages and rainforests. Air, water pollutions change climate creating floods and droughts. Nuclear bombs and atomic power stations cause security problem!
Clash between civilization and religious terrorism threatens peace after clash between capitalism and communism came to an end! Nuclear weapons in the hands of Islamic, communist nations and dirty bombs with terrorists threaten world’s very existence!
It is felt something is wrong somewhere in the society we live in. Is it due to education or civilization or economy or politics…..? Money rules man’s mind due to globalization of economy now. Ambition to become rich has made man into machine-beast-man!
Civilization of modern world and terrorism of religious fanatics due to their adverse natures kindle all thoughts towards culture for its all subject embracing nature helping best life to be feasible and turn the divided world look towards the creation of one world!
What can be done?
World religion is all about faith, education and culture. Good life depends on knowledge, friends and culture. Civilization is the index or mirror of human culture, for, it is a way of life with best thoughts, words and deeds!
There’s only one God who is all pervading Universal Spirit; this Universal God world religions call by various names! Faith shouldn’t be based on superstitious belief but on truth! All religions preach about peace, truth, love and brotherhood!
World Culture by International Friendship
It is wise to follow culture as to how best one can live life till the end. Based on knowledge and experience the system we follow to live with good manners and morality can be called culture that includes love of Nature, music and books of best thoughts, words and deeds!
Modern civilization sans culture has made man miserable and savage! Religion may make a cultured person into a divine being by perfection; but culture turns a brute into a human being by humanism which is what most needed in the present day world for creating one world order soon!
Culture is knowing best things in arts, science, literature, music, religion and expressing such knowledge to all and doing best things further on them! It is knowing things as they really are and making truth prevail over all; it brings peace of mind and helps mankind achieve spiritual perfection!
Human culture is love for and study of and pursuit of human perfection. It is thinking about or knowing, speaking or expressing about and doing best things in all fields of human endeavour of past, present and future enjoying those unique and precious things and passing on to posterity!
Culture is spread to people by classics, arts, painting, music and dance. Various national cultures put together into a whole form one world culture. Universal brotherhood or international friendship among world people truly blossoms into best world culture transcending colour, class, creed & race!
Best kind of Education
Education is the basis for all advancements and achievements forever; but present day education does not develop full personality of a person! Specialization makes one useless unless placed in suitable profession; so. dual study of Science and humanities only can provide full education!
Education should develop friendship and team work among students; build up character, develop intellectual power and spirit by meditation; train in agriculture, industries, fishing, army, arts, science and literature! Only by intellect true knowledge of Self, world, Nature or Spirit is gained!
Musing on Nature in quest of truth beautifully useful things are created. They only can get vision of knowledge to express talent creatively in life. Fine learning makes all love to do job, helps intellectual thinking to power and truly educated does civil and war jobs effectively, efficiently, excellently!
Culture increases human value by developing body, mind and spirit! Independent thinking develops knowledge to express talent in life; independent new thinkers creatively work better than all to society; and culture offers chance to develop on past achievements to perfection!
Best Way of Life
Human culture is the best way of life in the world for knowing all best things in Arts, Science, Literature, Politics and so on, spreading such things by love modifying as to changes of time and doing best things by finding solutions for all life problems.
For all ages, culture truly leaves a legacy for coming generations effecting harmonious human perfection to achieve joy and peace and above all, spiritual satisfaction in the world life to the last with a sense of goodness, beauty and truth forever and ever!
Some say life is a journey; it’s a struggle and also say it’s a battle! For all, literature is the dictionary and encyclopaedia of human life. Indian creed says life is existence, knowledge, bliss and absolute. So, a good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge.
Individual’s life duty is to get knowledge, earn wealth righteously, enjoy all pleasures and relinquish all to others in pursuit of moksha! Individual’s social duty is to select a field of work as to one’s nature, cooperatively serve society ignoring class, colour and race differences!
Literature reveals power of love and knowledge that makes one perfect to be free, confident and courageous to go on a life journey brief or long to attain a sense of liberty, love, happiness, peace and satisfaction sure as that is the purpose of life we are all trying and exploring to know ever.
Mystical life is musical dance inspired by song of Universal God in Nature. Vision of life canvas is one swimming from dark sea to shore by a beacon to climb a hill to mingle one with mist to go up stairway to reach heaven! This is the whole picture of life one has to travel from birth to death sure!
Good education, interesting job, friends, congenial community and favourable government are essential to lead a good life in the world. Food, clothing, shelter, education and employment are very vital for solving the problems of hunger, poverty, ignorance and disease.
International friendship among nations and people is world culture now. Exchange of cultural programmes brings closer world nations and people making it convenient and feasible to promote world peace and unity paving the way for developments in various fields by means of friendship.
By means of world friendship UNO surely has the capacity to involve all nations in creative activities with the view of solving all problems. By educational programmes UNO can train people in farms and industries, promote people’s talents in arts and science to utilize in creative works.
If UNO does duties of friendship, world will become culturally civilized! The more UNO improves world culture, the more peace and prosperity can be achieved by world friendship to change the world for the better and that is the way to achieve social justice and flourish one world life!
