" Samanya Dharma Bodham or Basis sense of Dharma is there in every human, by default. Nobody needs to teach him / her the same. Most of the modern and exciting philosophies are just defence mechanisms aimed at making one feel less guilty of one's immoral and unethical activities. But, the funny part is that, such comfort given by them is mostly hollow and temporary. Once that temporary period of comfort is over, the sense of guilt comes back with interest to ultimately result a frustrated life.
Yes; all those fancy and exciting philosophies may help one in managing those conflicts. But, ultimately it is a fight those fancy and exciting philosophies are going to lose. They cant fight with the basic sense of right and wrong and secure a permanent win.
It is a simple fact of life.This is the essence of Easwaramma saying Dharmic people get Mana Shanthi
Dharma is divided into to; Samanya Dharma abd Visesha Dharma.
Like how I said Samanya Dharma is universal, Visesha Dharma is not. It is dependant upon time, place, people, specific culture etc. Matters like these fall under Visesha Dharma. Hence trying to apply western morals and logic upon the Indian society is distortion."
Let me tell you a real incident that happened. A teenage girl to Swami Chinmayananda, "Whatever you teach are there in the texts. Then, why I need a guru?" Swamiji replies, "Why dont you ask this question to the texts?". Absolutely no substitute for a living guru."
