Edition Notes


“Are we a part of properly conceived meticulously  planned  and  brilliantly  executed    grand design?” In other words are we programmed by divinity?
The universe  is infinite and it contains crores and crores of stars,  planets, satellites, asteroids, comets etc. in its mysterious womb. But irrespecive  of  this  vastness  and  multiplicity, every being in the universe,   ( ie. ,   small  or big,   animate or inanimate),  is controlled by some strict code of discipline.    It is this  divine code of conduct  that makes the stars shine,  the  planets  rotate  and revolve,  and  the  mysterious   comets  make their regular routine visits through regular routes. This code  of behaviour is applicable to the planet Earth and its inhabitants also,  as they are, as a whole,  part and parcel of this gigantic operation  called  the Universe  or  Brahmanda.

Just like the divine laws which regulate and control the functioning of the heavenly bodies, there are some divine laws in the lower plane also. The span of life of living beings on earth is short, but by the mercy of the Creator, the intervals between the two ends of birth and death, ( ie., the period of life), is at the disposal of the living beings. Among the living beings, man is the most developed one, physically and mentally. As such, he is powerful and can do whatever he likes
As the uncontrolled free-will of the individual may upset the rythm of the divine plan, the law of Karma is enforced to limit the area of free-will. Still we hear daily of many atrocities of man. The reason is that we are not so cultured as we claim to be. Imagine the position, if there is no divine law to bridle the devil in man ! .
