Udupi: Everyone will become minority one day - Pejawar Swamiji


Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (SP)

Udupi, Mar 20: "Both Veerashaiva and Lingayat belief systems are one and the same although there are some basic ideological differences," said Sri Vishweshateertha Swamiji of Pejawar Math here on Monday March 19.

The Swamiji mentioned about differences between Dwaita, Adwaita, and Vishishtadwaita philosophies prevailing within Vedic belief system. "Even though there is difference in the idea we have about Brahma, all of us accept that we are Vedics, Vaishavaites, and Hindus at the same time. Likewise, although there are differences between Veerashaiva and Lingayat, as both of them accept Lord Shiva as the ultimate god, they are the same. Although there are differences in the forms of Lord Shiva, they fall under the category of Hindus," he opined.

Pejawar Swamiji also wondered whether Vaishnavaites, people following Advaita philosophy and Madhwas can call themselves as minorities. "If this argument is accepted, all others will become minorities. And Muslims will remain as the only majority community. In such a scenario, the government will have to provide reservation benefit to all of them. But these arguments are not justified. This will result in injustice to backward classes and Dalits in passing on reservation benefits. Veerashaiva and Lingayat are like our brothers. I am saying so because of sublime relationship we share with them. I urge the state government to withdraw the decision taken by it differentiating between these two sects. I also ask the union government not to adopt the decision of the state government on this issue," he added.

    In Christianity and Islam, there is no class difference among its followers. All are same in the eyes of Almighty and ranking is based on good character and merit.

    Swamiji, Forget about majority of minority. A group in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut on Sunday began a “mahayagya”, or Hindu ritual, of burning wood from the mango tree, which they believe will reduce air pollution. The Shri Ayuchandi Mahayagya Samiti will burn 50,000 kg of wood over nine days to curb pollution levels during Navratri.
    About 350 priests will participate in the ritual at the Bhainsali Grounds in Meerut from 8 am to 7 pm till March 26. As many as 108 fire pits will be set up for the ritual.
    The Uttar Pradesh Pollution Control Board has refused to stop the nine-day ritual because the matter is related to religion.
    Is this make sensible which India is projected as 'Hindu rashtra'? Please stop the citizens of India from choking to death and breathless.

    From Dalit Rohit Verumla to Una untouchable killed and thrashed in public view. The numbers hardly matters. Not even single condemnation from the most respected Swamiji.
    In this nation Dalits only united voting for 'BJP'. Once the elections are over they are thrown to the same trash were they might have picked.
    Only in India we need reservation in the name of SC and ST and rest of the world it works on the basis of merit. Last 70 years of ruling of the past remembered again and again. But what is the future of the outcast no one knows.
    When the rituals like rolling over spit plantain of left out by upper caste cannot be resolved, why the separate religion of 'Lingayat' matters?

    Religion is the way to reach God the ultimate ..Will identifying once self as hindu ,muslim,sikh ..christian will really help reach God ?..or in other words are we really interested to reach god ? or are we just beating around the bush and fighting for ego?
    This is nothing but politics ..Religion and politics are here to control our us ..It will never make you i a christ ,krishna , Mohammed or Budha..unless you are really open minded.

    I am a bunt ..I believe that our original way of life and Tulu culture is different from the vedic way of life and is different than the rest of the state

    Does that qualify bunts,tuluvas to demand a separate religion and state ?

    When our own Hindu childrens are dying of lack of 'oxygen' without the basic health facility in CM Yogis 'encounter Pradesh' those number don't matters.
    Everyday in this nation 54 farmers suiciding due to pity farm loans who are feeding this nation don't matters.
    More than half million 'girls' killed in abortion clinics before they see the first ray of light doesn't affect the numbers.
    There are five lakh death due to road accident in India each year. Hardly anyone cares about national road policy.
    Typical Brahminical mind set. If Basavana and Periyar is alive, India would have been more progressive without the SC or ST quotas and all on merit basis.
    For these Swamis, unemployment, basic health care system, security, peace, food hardly have any importance.

    People left Hinduism because they were weak , because they where fooled by foriegn Invaders, because we hindus never Invaded anyone's land, because we never made conspiracy to conquer someone, because our saints didn't do things to convert People from one religion to another, because we never believed that we need to convert to respect someone's religion. Differences exists everywhere, social differences exists everywhere, you go to Western countries you have racist,where a white discriminates a black despite the fact that both are Christians, why there is Catholics and Protestants in Christianity, face the fact today there are many cases were brahmins and dalits seat in the same bench and study , have lunch together.

    Prathik,

    Let me break down your comment,

    ''People left Hinduism because they were weak ,''
    Hinduism has cast system associated with it. Can dalit enter temple??? can a bramin eat in a dalits house??

    because they where fooled by foriegn Invaders,
    - Foreign invaders brought with them a religion that saw everyone as equal.

    because we hindus never Invaded anyone's land,
    - Wrong again.. every one has invaded. Thats how humanity spread across the planet.

    because we never made conspiracy to conquer someone,
    - wrong again.

    ''because our saints didn't do things to convert People from one religion to another,''
    - they never needed to.

    ''because we never believed that we need to convert to respect someone's religion. ''
    its not exactly how you say it is. you clearly lack an understanding of the very religion you support.

    ''Differences exists everywhere, social differences exists everywhere, you go to Western countries you have racist,where a white discriminates a black despite the fact that both are Christians,''
    Whites are one of the most non-racist people on this planet. If you hear about blacks being targeted by police .... thats because blacks commit more crimes( 3% of the population does around 50% of the crime)

    ''why there is Catholics and Protestants in Christianity,''
    religions always divide into subgroups and then fight among each other. Hindus used to do the same. But they dont seem to do is anymore because hindus now have other religions as their targets.

    ''face the fact today there are many cases were brahmins and dalits seat in the same bench and study , have lunch together.''
    So, then why do we hear the news every now and then that a dalit has been beaten up by upper caste people?

    first this country was divided based on religion. then created a gap between religion. after that they given priority to caste system for vote bank politics. Recently they created a separate flag for Karnataka which also part of dividing people. Now they are dividing inside the religion. this kind divide & rule vote bank politics is really dangerous. Congress should think about the development of this country instead of vote bank politics & self development.

    Why Brahmins worried about Lingayats getting separate religion? Are they worried their dominance over these people will end and they no more control them? Veerashaivas and Lingayats are one and the same. Veerashaivas still have Vedic pratices in them whereas Lingayats are sternly against Vedic rituals and practices. The followers of Lingayat traditions don't follow caste system. It is a religion like Buddism, Christianity, Islam, Sikhism etc by virtue of having its own metaphysical theories, which differ from Advaita, Dvaita and Visistadvaita of Vedanta. The Philosophy of this religion is known as Shoonyasiddhanta. Yoga or the path of meditation is known as Lingangyoga, which differs from all other Indian yogas. While Lingayats believe Anubhava Mantapa, Veerashaivas have temples. And the Holy Books for Lingayats is Vachana Sahitya while it's Siddhantha Shikhamani for Veerashaivas. Lingayats worship One God while Veerashaivas believe in multiple gods. There are several difference between the two. But why Pejawar Seer has to worry about Lingayats getting a separate religion tag? Lingayats weren't part of Hinduism and Vedic practices for several centuries now. Let Pejawar Seer allow Lord Shiva in Udupi Math first. If all Hindus are one, why Shiva isn't worshipped in Udupi Maths? It's an issue between Veerashaivas and Lingayats. So why RSS be too much worried about it? In fact the Lingayat Seers of prominance have already requested Pejawar Seer to stay out of this. So why is he again interfering?

    KP,

    Being in a general category and unqualified for any reservation I should have been the first to resent what Congress or any other government follows (including BJP because if it didn't reservation would have been abolished withing last four years).

    I call for merit based assessment because since 70 years of independence we have reared at-least two generations through reservation but it doesn't pay. Though present generation serves as officers in Govt departments, they still invoke reservation services for their children. Well, my taxes that pay for their living could have been put to better use.

    This is the reason I suggest changes, - no, I am not a supporter of Congress for their appeasement policy but for their 'all are alike' policy where we dwell together whether we are Christians, Muslims or Hindus. For the treatment that India is ours all, not just of Hindus.
