Mahatma Gandhi Community Forum

Human being generally think in the Horizental Direction---HD . The limitation of this type of thinking is that mind can go only up to limited awareness, because HD is limited in Space and Time. One has to discover the idea of Verticle Growth--VG, in order to go beyond mere worldley way, in order to achieve real- goal of life. The primary need is the inner eagerness to search the hightest state of conciousness, which is far beyond the odinary intellectual awarness to which I call---HD..So, it is a HD vis-a-vis VG quiz.

When we talk of Ayurveda, it is a subject not only of human physical-mental health but it encourage human being to go beyond body-mind, up to Vivek, a Sanskrit term for beyond- intellect. Therefore, one has to develop his/ her mind to the highest level of Vivek, Ayurveda really means----Science of Life. It is the science of Life which helped people like Mahatma Gandhi to rise to VG from HD. That is the point when I co-relate Gandhi and Ayurveda.

Now Yoga and Sankhya are the two terms on which entire Science of Ayurveda has been derived, Yoga verbally means to add and Sankhya means Science of mathemetics.Here we have to add body plus mind plus soul in order to reach Veveka, the highest level of mental state.

At this point I will stop till you are able to grasp what I have tried to explain....

Dear ABBji,

Wonderful post on human life from the growth perspective. I would like to add few of my thoughts here.

Vertical Growth may be attained by focusing on some goal as suggested by Science of Life. “Vivek”, the spontaneous knowledge is what we see in great leaders and scientists.

When He was denied a first class travel, Gandhi could perceive a problem of the whole mankind.
On looking at an apple falling from a tree, Newton could perceive an answer for a scientific substance.

Horizontal thinking makes us consider too many aspects of life and won’t let us posses a good state of mind. When we focus our thoughts and narrow down the goals, our mind gets purified and the search for the highest state of consciousness becomes simpler. The cooperation of body, mind and soul is required for the enlightened mind to act towards a goal.

Dear Araya, thank you for introducing this inspiring dilemma to the gandhitopia community.
I believe that many will grasp, both the meaning of what you wrote, and the loving intention that inspired your writing the post. Very appropriate and very timely.
It is true that Humanity is wondering horizontally to find the direction for growth and solutions to its problems: politically is swinging from right to left,… economy was going west and now is turning towards east,… competition was advancing forward and now there is recession.
You have travelled the world and you know many people have already manifested that ‘eagerness for the search the highest state of consciousness’ and you know how much they are growing.
As the material world will approach its critical climaxes, as the people will abandon the search horizontally and shift on the vertical direction.
Therefore, all those that have pioneered the ‘vertical’ search should get ready to give a hearty, unbiased reception to all those seeking for help and guidance.
Jai Jagat!
