intensifying the effect of the environment further.” Fairly a long sentence which has got enormous load. I would like to draw your attention to the thought “community of thoughts”. We know the “community of men” do you know the “Community of thoughts”? Have you ever heard this expression? But then this was given in 1981 and today we are in 2001. For 20 years we did not think about it? I am not criticizing you. I am only trying to tell how seriously we view at the literature that has been passed onto us. What is this “community of Thoughts”? For your information, I again invite your attention to Lord Krishna who talked about a “pravritti” and a “nivritti”. A daivi pravritti and an asuri pravritti - two things he talked. There are people who are God oriented, Godly in nature. There are people who are ungodly in nature. That’s a community, a community of asuras. Do we belong to the community of asuras or do we have the thoughts which belong to the community of devas? That is the crux. Where do we live? “community of thoughts” What thoughts? Thoughts are not abstract concepts. Thoughts are what we are suffering from or enjoying, either way you can put it. You can say you are enjoying the thought or you are suffering the thought but then it is
yours, it is a concrete thing, it is not an abstract idea. 3
