Change of the Era means altering the trends of the times, transforming the culture, environment and way of life. This seemingly impossible looking task can be accomplished only if the majority of the global human society is transformed. Individuals constitute the families; families constitute societies, ensemble of which is the global human community. Thus the world would usher in a bright new era if each one of us resolves and transforms accordingly.
The world is what we perceive it as by and large it is a reflection of our own outlook. Inculcation of righteous outlook in the light of universal values of humanity by every thoughtful person could therefore be the driving force to trigger and propagate the gigantic wave of epochal change. Only an angelic seer like Gurudev Pandit Shriram Sharma Aacharyaji could envisage the future, and plan and propagate such absolute as well as practical approach for the present. Not only that, he also created necessary sublime ambience for it through his decades of dedicated spiritual endeavours.
Many people would regard “Yug Nirman” – creation of a new era; “Yug Parivartan” – change of an era, as rhetoric slogans or superficial claims. In the present times of ecosystem degradation, economic crises, corruption, separatism, terrorism, and all-round decline, how could one claim to change not only a society, but an 'era' itself? So the pledge of “Yug Nirman” might sound like a 'utopia' to most readers. However, those who know that the immense willpower, unperturbed determination, tremendous courage of the great Rishi behind this is of the level of “Ekoham Bahusyami” and “Dharma Sansthanpanarthaya, Sambhavami Yuge, Yuge”, would see the real substance in it.
It is the resolution of a saint, reformer, pre-eminent thinker. What several thinkers and scientists of global repute are predicting today regarding the possibilities of bright future for mankind also emanates from the same key idea that he announced half a century ago – creation of an (bright) era by (refined) holistic development of individuals.
Revered Gurudev further wrote – “The avatar (divine incarnation
) for change of the era would first manifest in the form of inner will. This Yug Nirman Satsankalp
is a seed form of this avatar”. This is a statement emanating from the pure wisdom of a great saint, whose heart pulsated to eliminate agonies and adversities from this world and who relentlessly strived to create a positive ambience of holistic progress. He dedicated every moment of his life for this noble cause. As the precious glow of gold shines after rigours processing in fire, his mission also gloriously stood all tests of time and left no doubt that the protocol of Yug Nirman is an expression of the divine resolution of the Nishkalank Pragyavatar.
