But mark you,if you give up that spirituality, leaving it aside to go after the materializing civilization of the west,the result will be that in three generation you will be an extinct race; because the back-done of the nation will be broken, the foundation upon which the national edifice has been built will be undermined, and the result will be annihilation all round.

Europe,the center of the manifestation of material energy, will crumble into dust within fifty years,if she is not mindful to change her position,to shift her ground and make spirituality the basis of her. And what will save Europe is the religion of the Upanishads.

Our aristocratic ancestors went on trading the common masses of our country under foot, till they became helpless,till under this torment the poor, poor people nearly forgot that they were human beings. They have been compelled to be merely hewers of wood and drawers of water for centuries, so much so,that they are made to believe that they are born as slaves, born as hewers of wood and drawers of water.

The truths of the Upanishads are before you. Take them up, live up to them, and the salvation of India will be at hand.

Do you feel? Do you feel that millions and millions of the descendants of gods and of sages have become next-door neighbors to brutes? Do you feel that millions are starving today,and millions have been starving for ages? Do you feel that ignorance has come over the land as a dark cloud? Does it make you restless? Does it make you sleepless? Has it gone into your blood,coursing through your veins,becoming consonant with your heartbeats? Has it made you almost mad? Are you seized with that one idea of the misery of ruin, and have you forgotten all about your name, your fame, your wives, your children, your property, even your own bodies? Have you done that? That is the first step to become a patriot,the very first step.
