Subject: Fw: Vedas at your doorstep_ A few Vedic mantras on Deadly Disease of Society– Corruption— Save Sanatan Vedic Dharma
Indian democracy is fast drifting toward Oligarchy and even Mobocracy, owing to wide spread corruption parading up and down in Govt corridores, market and religious places and many other areas. There is no effort by government, political Netas, religious leaders, social organisations etc; to curb it. Make hay while the Sun shines is the only visible policy every where.
Let us all eliminate jointly this deadly disease from India by following simple but noble and divine teachings of Vedas, which are specifically meant for the existing Kali yuga (Dark Age).

Dear Seekers of Vedic knowledge,
A few mantras/riks in the Vedas on hydra headed corruption are mentioned below.
Hydra headed Corruption is a major subject in the Vedas
R.V.1-191-81, 1-28-4, 2-14-3 and many other hymns relate to corruption. It is hydra headed with nine heads later depicted in Ramayana in the nine corrupt/evil heads of Ravana. It enters human body through 99 sources (9X11) i.e. through 5 senses, 5 sense organs and outward looking mind. Later 99 sources were depicted in 99 evil minded/corrupt sons of blind king Dhritrashtra in Mahabharata.
The Vedic rsis and munnies had also visualized that material prosperity alone may turn a number of individuals into avarnas, vritras and other evil minded people, resulting in lack of transparency, corrupt practices and make an ideal open society into a closed society. (R.V.1-191-8, 1-28-4 and 24, 1-76-3, 2-14-3, 4-9-9).
Rig-Veda 1-104-3 refers to corruption as misappropriation of public funds, taking bribe for money belonging to the state and trusts and when the individual’s action results in the reduction of state revenue or the revenue of the institution where he/she is a trustee.
Rig Veda.1-42-3 mentions bribe takers are thieves of God and those learned persons who justify corruption are also corrupt. Rig-Veda 3-34-6 again refers to bribe takers as thieves and robbers. A.V. 3-18-1 to 6 refers to debauchery, rape and adultery as heinous crimes and part of hydra headed corruption.
Sam Veda while, mentioning 99 sources of corruption and evil, also calls it a disease which goes on increasing with all material treatment and makes the power of soul and human spirit weaker and weaker (Sama Veda 913 and 179).
Ninety-nine sources of evils are also mentioned in A.V. 20-1-1. The society and the state should make all roads and paths free from danger and fear by either punishing wicked and corrupt persons or reform them through Vedic education and knowledge. A few other references on corruption are briefly given as below.
Bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of righteous… such persons are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. A wicked man accepts a bribe behind the back to pervert the ways of justice. It takes ten years for the seed of corruption to become an evil tree and its poison spreads in the family, amongst friends and others. Bribery is against the laws of God (Rta) as all wealth belongs to Him and bribe takers are thieves of the God.
For the seekers of Vedic knowledge (harmonized divine, spiritual and material) for on line reading and even taking print free of cost “Glimpses of Vedic Metaphysics” is available on the Internet at Website http://www.sabhlokcity.com/metaphysics/ Book is also accessible through search engines of google.com, lulu.com and yahoo.com.

With kind regards,
Yours Spiritual Brother,
Kindly see my earlier e-mail Vedic messages where I have stated that Vedic thoughts reached holy Bible through Plato, St. Augustine, St. Acquinas and others. Atharva Veda tells us when Soul was provided to human beings Vedic thoughts and metaphysics were revealed. Thus many Vedic thoughts enetred in scriptures in many other parts of the world.
Vedic thoughts on corruption can be seen in the holy Bible.
"Holy Bible has many references to corruption. There is a mention that society is now building ‘Mount of corruption’ (2 Kin 23-12). Cause of corruption is deceitful lust and corruptible things on this earth are gold, silver etc., (2 Peter 1-4, Ephesians 4- 22 and Peter 1-18). Bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of righteous (Deuteronomy 16-19), … for you are like white washed tombs, which are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness…such persons are within full of hypocrisy and iniquity (Mathew.23.27-28). A wicked man accepts a bribe behind the back to pervert the ways of justice (Prov 17-23). A corrupt man would call God, as Lord but will never do any thing that God says Luke.6-46. Being slaves of corruption they will not even call their corrupt ideas, habits and actions as evil and will finally perish in their own corruption, depravity and bondage 2.Peter 2-19. For he who sows in his flesh will of flesh reap corruption…Galatians 6-8. The holy Bible has a large number of commandments, injunctions and spiritual and moral advises even directly from Jesus to all the human beings against various kinds of corruption and evils. Pope Pius XI had also spoken against accumulation of wealth with immense power and despotic economic domination concentrated in the hands of a few who administer them at their good pleasure… so that no one dare breathe against their will. He has mentioned this as against the laws of God as all the wealth belongs to Him."
