"Since scamp and sneak and snake
So often undertake,
A plan that does not thrive
The world wags on alive."
Having absorbed the last six months of political mayhem in the world, I have come to take solace in the ancient stories of "Nitti", a word from ancient India describing the art of harmonious development of the powers of men and women in human society.
"Nitti", as laid out in the Panchatantra (an old collection of fables and stories from India), and like Aesops Fables (a collection of stories of ancient Greece) focuses a lot on animal characters. Nitti is a body of teachings that encompass all aspects of human life from relationships, government, business, strategy, security and warfare.
In this blog I will bring forward the teachings of the Panchetantra, the essence of yoga as I understand it, and the teachings of the Sikh Gurus; as well as scientific discoveries that relate to life, liberty and the pursuit of true happiness.
The rogues and con-men who have managed to gain control of our government in America will do, and have begun to do, what is described in the poem above. Take their health care plan for example. It is certainly a “plan that does not thrive”.
They are only starting but they will not be successful, and their actions will unite every decent, honorable and charitable citizen to overcome the challenges that lay ahead and create a truly just society, which reflects the aspirations laid out in the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Pledge of Allegiance.
With liberty and justice for all.
