how we can increase.. you know, this type of method, like you are teaching us now to most of the people here when at the same time we are fighting with another system like psychologies, medicines, you know, every little thing they give you a pill and that's it, that is going to solve it so it's like a big contradiction in I don't know how we can get more from method like yours. now one thing we need to understand is if you have to bring about subjective solution to every problem that you have popping a pill is an object of solution it is never really a solution it manages your problem in some way so that you can continue your life to reasonable extent at least but if you're seeking a subjective solution that means you're looking for an absolute solution if you're looking for an absolute solution like that it needs to be approached with a certain sense of dedication and commitment dedication is a very scarce material in the world and especially in the western world it's a very scarce material because we have encouraged certain type of thought you know all the time it's a market forces which decide everything or its human greed which decides the course of the society when we say a market forces will decide what we're saying is human greed which is deciding. isn't it? not human sense not human ----- ; not human compassion; not human anything; but fundamentally is greed but it's a worked economically it's worked out other methods that they tried in other parts of the world where something else was supposed to direct lifes well being have failed they have failed not because there's something wrong with the system they have failed because of wrong kind of people handled it for example when you say communism it's an ugly word here you not even supposed to say it but i want you to understand what communism means in its essence what happened is different in its essence what it means is that everybody lives according to his need not according to his greed it's a wonderful way to live if it came voluntarily consciously it's a wonderful way to live but when it is enforced with the military is the ugliest way to live when karl marx dreamnt of a communist world some day what he said was karl marx knew a lot about economics but knew nothing about human beings he knew a lot about economics but he did not understand the human mind he believed the richest societies in the world will turn communist they will share what they have with the poorer classes and the world will be a fantastic place to live but you always found it is the poorest of the poor societies which always talked about communism poor people want to share rich people don't want share when communism came to Russia after revolution you know; Mark twain Mark twain was so excited about communism he said, how wonderful it should be that people are actually willing to share what they have with people who don't have and live an equal basis that's a ultimate dream. Isn't it? so Mark twain travelled to russia to witness this such a rare event in the world never before its happened so he was walking on a country road looking around really you know ; looking for communism everywhere everything shared and live together some extent it was happening to a large extent it was happening but it was being compelled it was being enforced it was not happening out of people's wanting to shares one country gentleman was walking with two hands under his arms; he was walking Mark wind caught up with him and said comarade is it true? that... Are you a communist? He asked, yes. I am communist. I am a party member. Is it true that if you had two mansions you would give away one mansion to somebody who doesn't have he said of course yes. I am a communist is it true if you had two horse carriages you would give away one to somebody who doesn't have said yes of course I am a functionary in the party. I will do it if you had two hands would you give away one hand to somebody what the hell. that's all I have so you're willing to share that which you don't have this marks did not understand Marks really had a must be a really wonderful man he believed that people will share and live he propounded a whole philosophy but it the whole experiment turned out so ugly simply because it was forcefully enforced and another half of the world was ---- doing everything to see that it doesn't work that was also there so now if you want a subjective solution from within it needs a dedicated approach for example the yoga or even let's say the martial arts that came to united states you know about 20 years ago 25 five years ago these things started coming see they need enormous discipline if you want to go into martial arts if you learn martial arts in India for example not the popular ones have become like this only but the you know the traditional martial arts they will put you through enormous discipline you have to dedicate your whole life to it you have to surrender to the guru he will teach you in certain way that it transforms your life not just to learn to kick and beat it's a whole long process you don't get certificates you don't get certified this belt that belt that belt; you know you don't get any certificate till he says till the master says you can use it till then even if somebody comes to kill you, you don't use it you just die like a ordinary man even though you have the potential with your bare arms you could just knock down 10 people you don't use it till he approves it this kind of discipline is enforced because if the subjective science has to work that's how it is but that kind of martial arts came to united states in 10 years time just see what happend it became a kicking culture yes you learn and kick anybody in the face now you don't have to kick people down below you can kick them in the face you learnt the new trick now all the self-discipline which went with it went away it just became like a fighting force it was not a fighting force it was another way of controlling the violence in you and make you very self-disciplined and realize at some point similarly yoga came now every street corner has yoga studios every kind of yoga going on I usually don't enter this studios but it happened that two three years ago I was in paris so this lady you know she invited me and because of some obligation i ended up in the yoga studio to talk to people there her students i entered the yoga studio; hall like this and I found she just put up a long board of all the different type of yogas she is teaching all the different type of thing available like a menu card twenty different types of yogas mantra yoga; shakthi yoga; sabtha yoga; this yoga; that yoga; I just looked at this and i said where did you get all this? she said 3 months i was in India I said i was born there in three months' time you picked up 20 different types of yogas any one of them if you have to master then it will take lifetimes 20 different yogas she is offering in 3 months of visiting india as a tourist now once it becomes like this obviously subjective sciences are not possible
