    It is the climax of ignorance to think that the spiritual knowledge is unrelated to the present worldly affairs. People think that the spiritual knowledge is always related to the upper world only and this shows their ignorance. The Lord is simultaneous ruler of this world as well as the upper world. The Lord can grant any materialistic boon in this world and also can give simultaneously the protection in the upper world. The Lord is also involved in the social problems of this world because He is ultimately governing this society also. There is His government underlying in the present human government as the foundation. The present human government is like the castle seen above the ground. But the government of the Lord is like the hidden foundation present inside the ground. Jesus always referred this government of the Lord. Lord Krishna also exhibited the existence of this invisible government of the Lord by showing the vision of His cosmic form (Viswaroopam). Arjuna decided to withdraw from the war and thereby he thought that his grandfather Bhishma and the teacher Drona would escape from death. By this Dharmaraja will not become the king. Both the punishment of the evil and protection of justice were withdrawn by Arjuna. The actual petitioner was withdrawing from his own case. Then in such case Krishna, the advocate of Arjuna need not worry. Arjuna thought that he brought Krishna as his helper in his own case.

    If the petitioner withdraws his own case, the court accepts and leaves the case in the present human government. But the ultimate government will not accept it. Even if the petitioner does not file his case, the case is registered in the court of the ultimate divine government. Therefore Krishna turned the tables diagonally opposite. In His exhibited Viswaroopam, Krishna showed that He Himself was killing the evil opponents called as Kauravas. This picture proved that Krishna is the petitioner and Arjuna was His helper. The petitioner will do his work even in the absence of the helper. You may think that the kingdom belongs to Pandavas for, which the war was taking place and therefore Arjuna should be the real petitioner and war must be his work. You will misunderstand like this as long as you think Krishna as an ordinary human being. But Krishna was Lord in human form and the entire creation was His kingdom. Therefore the society present on this tiny earth is also a small part of His kingdom. Every living being is under the rule of His divine government and therefore any affair of the individual or the society is His subject only. Arjuna understood the meaning of this vision and that his grandfather and teacher cannot live even if he withdraws from the war. Therefore he thought that it would be better to follow the instruction of the Lord and kill them so that at least he will please the Lord.

    The absence of realization of the existence of this underlying invisible divine government of the Lord, which was preached by Jesus again and again as kingdom of heaven and which was exhibited by Krishna through the divine vision, is responsible for all the present burning problems at the individual level as well as at the gross level of the society. The human government is neglecting to propagate the awareness regarding the existence of this divine government. In fact the divine government also rules the human government. Perhaps the human government is feeling about the loss of its prestige by propagating the presence of this ultimate divine government. The awareness of the concept of this ultimate government of the Lord can be propagated through education at the primary level. But the government especially in India feels shy to introduce the spiritual knowledge in the education due to the so-called secularism.

    In the judiciary system also, the emphasis that the Lord is the supreme judge is also not given. The statue of justice present in the court is covering its eyes with a piece of cloth and opening its ears. This indicates that the court has not seen the truth but renders the judgement based on hearing the witness. This clearly educates the people that the judgement can be mislead by producing false witness. The statue indicates the human judicial government with limitations. In the olden days, every temple was also used as a court. The statue in the temple is with open eyes and open ears, which indicate that the Lord is seeing everything and knows the truth. The third eye on the forehead of Lord Shiva indicates that the Lord Himself is the executive power in implementing the judicial punishment. In the olden days, both the parties would present their arguments in front of the statue of God. Then both the parties were left free. Within a month, the criminal side receives severe punishment from the God. By this the judge was recognizing the criminal. In this process, the involvement of God in the judiciary system was from top to bottom. At least now let the statue of human justice be replaced with the statues of all religions to protect the secularism. Let the court be made the temple. Let the divine ultimate government be fully exhibited. The Lord who is the supreme judge knows the truth without any witness (Sarvatokshisiromukham--- Gita).

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
