Gandhi's Seven Deadly Social Sins
by Robert Wilkinson
Most of us have heard of the so-called 7 Deadly Sins. However, one of the greatest Beings come to Earth in centuries gave us another list, the 7 Deadly Social Sins. To find out what the "Mahatma," or "Great Spirit" thought were the source of all of humanity's ills, read on.
Mohandas Karamachand Gandhi was one of the greatest Beings to walk the Earth in millennia. He was a highly spiritually evolved politician, revolutionary, and statesman, master of non-violent non-cooperation with the sources of human degradation. He led his country to independence through demonstrating the practical efficacy of the doctrine of "non-violence," or ahimsa, applied through the power of satyagraha, or "Soul-force."
Albert Einstein, one of the greatest minds humanity has produced, once said of Gandhi that "Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this walked the earth in flesh and blood." One of the most effective politicians in history, he demonstrated the practical truth that the way of applied Soul force using non-violent techniques is the most powerful political tool we have.
Here are the Mahatma's 7 deadly social sins:
Wealth without Work
Pleasure without Conscience
Science without Humanity
Knowledge without Character
Politics without Principle
Commerce without Morality
Worship without Sacrifice
Sounds like most of the world's political parties (and religions) are the source of every social ill we have on Earth. May we live to see the day when these no longer exist to plague humanity. Aum Namah Shivaya!
