RSS says Integral Humanism is solution for present Global Crisis
Narendra Ch | 25 Oct 2016

The three-day national executive committee (Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal) of Rastreeya Swayam Sevak Sangh (RSS) concluded in Hyderabad, on Tuesday,expressed strong viewpoint that the solution for current challenges, emerging before the world lies in pursuing the philosophy of Integral Humanism based on the eternal Bharatiya vision as propounded by Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay, one of the founder of Bharatiya Jana Sangh.

It said, the basis for this philosophy is to nurture the world with an integral vision, inspired by the sense of universal well being of the living and nonliving entities of the world. RSS expressed concern that today, the growing economic disparities in the world, environmental imbalance and terrorism have been posing severe challenge to the humanity. The problems of unemployment, poverty, mal-nutrition, along with the growing economic crises in various countries and the hold of multinational companies of few countries over more than two thirds of the global output etc. are grievously worrisome today across the world, due to pursuing unrestrained capitalism and communist ideology of class struggle. It pointed out that disintegration of families and psychosomatic diseases are increasing at an alarming rate, due to focusing the outlook of life solely on materialistic needs. On account of indiscriminate exploitation of nature the emerging challenges of natural calamities due to rising temperature, continuous rise in sea level, growing air-water-soil pollution, water crisis, degradation of fertile soil and extinction of living species are all worsening. It also deplored that the terrorism inspired by religious fanaticism and extremist political ideologies has taken monstrous proportions. Consequently brutal killings of children, elderly and women are increasing relentlessly. The ABKM expresses grave concern towards all these. RSS is confident that all these can be eradicated only by pursuing the philosophy of Integral Humanism through mutual coordination inter se, from individual to the entire living world and its ecology, pursuant to the eternal integral thought. Sustained development with peaceful co-existence can only be ensured by eliminating undue competition and conflicts inter se the individuals, communities and nations by having a holistic relationship among the individual, family, society, world, entire living universe and the cosmos, it added. RSS recalled that at the Earth Summit of 1992, organised at Rio De Janeiro by the United Nations Organization, 172 nations had committed themselves to the goals of world peace, sustainable development and environment protection. The world has been continuously drifting away from these ideals. Once again in the Paris Summit of 2015, it said that most of the countries of the world have committed themselves for achieving the goals of controlling rising global temperature. To fulfill the aforesaid ideals, RSS firmly resolved that all the nations, as an integral part of the world, need to strive for collective development with restraining consumption, and all the citizens have to behave with an approach of holistic relationship among the family, society and nature, then sustainable harmony in the world can be ensured without struggle and conflict. This is the centenary year of Pandit Deendayal Ji Upadhyay and is also the 51st year of his propounding the philosophy of Integral Humanism in light of eternal Bharatiya vision, relevant to present times. Considering this as the most appropriate opportunity for its implementation, RSS calls upon all the citizens including Swayamsevaks, the Union and various State Governments, and the thought leaders of the world to put in all possible efforts to ensure coordination among the constituents of the world order, including the nature. For this purpose, it said that appropriate experiments shall have to be conducted along with development of an appropriate model. This would facilitate fulfilment of the aim of blissful life of all living beings across the globe and universal well being.
