Should we give up all the modernization and the machinery available for being traditional ?


There was some discussion going on, ‘Should we give up all the modernization and the machinery available? We should take some of the things in the modern also which is not all bad.’

I wanted to make it very clear: I am not at all against modernization. Include as much as you can, learn as much as you can, absorb as much as you can from all the modern things. I am not at all against it. I am only saying, you don’t need to throw away, give up on the traditional things when it is really not conflicting your modern way of living. That is all I am saying. You don’t have to give up because it is old. Try to assimilate both as much as you can. You will have a perfect new life!

I have not given up modernization. See, actually, all over the world, tons of countries are watching me now, live, because of modernization. You are seeing me, I am seeing you, because of modernisation. I think more than forty cities! More than forty; it is not just forty. I am giving you an example. If I have to read out, it is such a large list all over the world.

So, I am not at all against modernization. I will only request one thing: We don’t need to give up on the traditional truths, the traditional lifestyle, just because it is tradition. I am not at all against giving up on something traditional which is not good in the modern-day for your health or your mind or your life. If that is the situation, I am always for reinventing ourselves. Don’t be “modern” fanatic, giving up on something just because it is traditional, even though it is good for you. That is all I am saying don’t do.
