AlOchanaamR^itaM

AlochanaamR^itaM Love in Politics Love has a place in politics, but it is the love for one's country, for one's countrymen, for the glory, greatness and happiness of the race, the divine aananda of self-immolation for one's fellows, the ecstacy of relieving their sufferings, the joy of seeing one's blood flow for country and freedom, the bliss of union in death with the fathers of the race.

The feeling of almost physical delight in the touch of the mother soil, of the winds that blow from Indian seas, of the rivers that stream from Indian hills, in the sight of Indian surroundings, Indian men, Indian women, Indian children, in the hearing of Indian speech, music, poetry, in the familiar sights, sounds, habits, dress, manners of our Indian life, this is the physical root of that love [of Mother India].
The pride in our past, the pain of our present, the passion for the future are its trunk and branches.
Self-sacrifice, self-forgetfulness, great service and high endurance for the country are its fruit.
And the sap which keeps it alive is the realisation of the Motherhood of God in the country, the vision of the Mother, the knowledge of the Mother, the perpetual contemplation, adoration and service of the Mother.

- Sri Aurobindo (On Nationalism, pp.  360-364)

First source:
BramhaSri Malladi Chandra Sekhara Satri gave excellent talks on Bhagavatam, Ramayanam, Mahabharatam and Kartika Puranam at Sankara Matt, Hyderabad. He was their Asthana Kavi and retired at the age of 70 (after 50 years of excellent service to community by doing research and conveying the information in the form of Pravachanamulu). Each purana is for 9 days spanning 10+ hours of talk. Also Sankara Mutt made it very economical. Each CD with 10+ hours of MP3 cost only 100 rupees. (These talks came to my life as God Given gift to me, when I visited India). You can get them from SR communications, contact them at:
