KEYS TO THE AWAKENING OF BHARATA
If we look back over the history of mankind there is no other nation, culture or religion possessing such a long history and such an extensive literature to support it. No other nation from the ancient world - whether Greece, Rome, Persia, Babylonia or Egypt - has even survived so unbroken and their literature remains in fragments. No culture has proved so enduring, dynamic, diverse and yet consistent as that of perennial Bharata, the land of the Rishis. However, Bharata was never just a nation in the narrow modern sense of a political nation state. Such modern nations are not spiritual units and may lack any deep cultural unity. They are nations defined by outer factors of language, ethnicity, economics, geography, or political interests.

No such nation can persist through time like Bharata because they lack any organic basis in cosmic law such as Bharata has emphasized. Bharata is an entirely different kind of nation, a nation defined by a spiritual culture, a way of Self-realization that is inherent in the souls and lives of the people, not imposed from the outside by any church or leader. Bharata is not a land defined by political interests or by religious dogma but by spiritual aspiration, a land in which Yoga and meditation became the prime principles behind the culture. The country of Bharata is the body formed by the soul of Bharata, which is its true power. This soul of India is Mother India, Bharati Devi or Mother Durga. She is not just the soul of this region but the incarnation of the Divine Mother on the planet, the great protectress of the spiritual heart of humanity, the guardian of the soul.

Bharata, however, was never merely a land of yogis, monks or ascetics. The Bharatiya spiritual urge did not arise from the suppression of other human urges but from a full flowering of human nature in all aspects, including the arts and the sciences. This we see lavishly embodied in Indian music and dance, mathematics and medicine. The Hindu spiritual urge did not develop against life but through following out the deepest impulse of life that is toward freedom and transcendence.
