Dowry-Free India Campaign by Jagat Guru Rampal Ji
Published on Sep 29, 2017
The greatest societal evil which has snatched peace and happiness from the lives of numerous girls and their parents is undoubtedly the self imposed curse, called dowry! It works like a termite with a never ending greed for materialistic possessions and wealth from the side of families-in-law, which hollows the lives of so many girls.
Though there exists an act called the Dowry Prohibition Act, which prohibits the give and take of dowry, but, in reality, the major chunk of population is highly indulged in taking part in this malpractice! Through the relentless efforts of Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj, His disciples have abandoned this custom, understanding that this is a poisonous seed that people sow for themselves.
Dowry - A Curse for Mankind
- Dowry is a self inflicted curse for society because it is due to this social evil, that lakhs of women are harassed! Not just this, women commit suicide or are even killed by their husbands or families-in-law. Are these the relations, the so-called intelligent people build up?
- Dowry stands as the sole reason for two more societal evils, female foeticide (where the sex of the foetus is found out and the foetus is aborted if it is a girl) and female infanticide (where a girl is killed after she is born). All these are acts of sheer shame and should get vanished from the minds of the human community at large.
- On one hand, people worship goddesses and on the other hand, the same persons pressurize and torture women for increasing their short-term materialistic wealth in the form of dowry! A society which is dominated by such malpractices can’t modernize in true sense.
- People have made marriage a commercial arrangement because of which, the parents of a girl child feel heavily burdened throughout their lives. On one hand, there is a heavy financial burden of dowry and on the other hand, there is a fear of their beloved daughter being harassed! Dowry causes an all bane situation and should be vanished completely.
Kabir, ye maya atpati,
Sab ghatt aan adi.
Kis kis ko samjhaun,
Ye kooen bhaang padi!
Establishment of Dowry Free India
- The relations of this world are formed by the theory of give and take. Therefore, for the reaching the immortal abode, Satlok, we need to minimize the indebtness towards everyone. When people demand or take dowry, they are getting indebted towards the girl and her parents, which they will have to repay along with interest, in the next birth for sure!
Ek lewa ek dewa dootam,
Koi kisi ka pita na pootam.
Rinn sambandh juda ik tha tha,
Ant samey sab baraah baata!
- Those who demand dowry are falsely considering that they are becoming rich by receiving this materialistic wealth, while in reality, according to the constitution of God, people who stay dependent on other’s money, become much poorer than before! It’s high time that we realise that our stay in this world is short lived. Do not fill your life’s account with heinous sins.
- In this world where money seems to be the only provider of happiness, the reality lies in the fact that, the more wealth a person possesses, the more sorrowful he is! While greediness has touched its highest level as people sell their son for dowry and prepare a full-on list on the basis of his educational qualifications, wealth and status, intellect has reached a level far below what is desirable. It’s the time to actually wake up.
Maya ka rass peey kar,
Ho gaye daamadol.
Aisa Satguru hum mileya,
Gyaan yog diya khol!
