Dada Krsnasevananda on "The Role of Spirituality in Modern Society"

1

"Imagine what it would be like if, instead of branding us by our brains or looks, our schools and televisions described the divinity and greatness inside each one of us, and taught us the means to realize it. If, instead of idolizing wealth and fame, showed us the usefulness and joy of cooperation and fair play. The level of enlightenment in our future society will depend a lot on the level of enlightenment in our present day education. More than ever before we need spiritually inspired educators and a spiritually inspired media." 
Dada Krsnasevananda

"Without spirituality, the inborn hunger for infinite happiness cannot be properly satisfied. Instead it is expressed through physical accumulation and the desire for power. Only when we begin to redirect our longing for infinite happiness towards the limitless sphere of spirituality will we be liberated from the urge to accumulate unfair amounts of wealth and power. Thus spirituality is the key to sustainability and social justice." 
- Dada Krsnasevananda

Dada Krsnasevananda says that we need to develop clear visions of the kind of world we would like for ourselves and future generations. Mr. Krsnasevananda presented the PROUT model developed by Ananda Marga in answer to the social ills of our present-day society. He also observed that the need, the longing for spirituality in the world, is on the rise, and emphasized that now more than ever spiritual movements need to act united.
