The Vedas are called Sruti because they must be heard with attention. Listening (sravanam) implants ideas: it inspires you to take stock of your condition, to note your deficiencies and failings, and even your excellences and merits. The ear has great potentiality to correct, reform and guide. Listen to the Ramayana and the Mahabharata; it is a precious chance that many are not benefitting from now! Discover for yourselves the greatness of Rama, Krishna, Meera and Radha. Dwell on their lives and the examples they place before you; correct your habits, your outlook, your attitude to the world, to society, and to yourself. That is the path to salvation. The ear fills the head, the head directs the arm, and the arm acts. So hear good things, do good things and share good things. That gives joy and contentment.
