Morality the Most Essential at Present

-Nagshetty K. Shetkar

Wherever midnight competition is going on in technological inventions and various luxury instruments are being developed for enhancement of facilities. Today’s development may be out dated or not useful tomorrow. Some of the above may have side effects, may propagate extravaganza. The real development does not lie in the materials. Satisfaction is state of happiness and development. Percentage of the contemporary masses hails with misconception of the happiness as luxurious material facilities.

In contemporary metropolitan culture a new trend is moving back to consume natural agricultural grains. Food stuff cooked in old ritualistic crockery and ancient style. This measure is emerged as a remedy to long term effects caused by over use of chemicals as fertilizer in agriculture.

In addition to above all the most essential need is to adopt Moral values. Values cannot be purchased or borrowed. Only the way is to access them. So many prophets have given several guidelines for moral values and to lead happy and prosperous life. If we follow them, we can lead very happy and peaceful life and there may be moral development.

ಬಸವಣ್ಣ ಮಾಡಲಿಕ್ಕೆ ಗುರುವಾಯಿತ್ತು.
ಬಸವಣ್ಣ ಮಾಡಲಿಕ್ಕೆ ಲಿಂಗವಾಯಿತ್ತು.
ಬಸವಣ್ಣ ಮಾಡಲಿಕ್ಕೆ ಜಂಗಮವಾಯಿತ್ತು.
ಬಸವಣ್ಣ ಮಾಡಲಿಕ್ಕೆ ಪ್ರಸಾದವಾಯಿತ್ತು.
ಬಸವಣ್ಣ ಮಾಡಲಿಕ್ಕೆ ಈರೇಳುಲೋಕವಾಯಿತ್ತು.
ಬಸವಣ್ಣನಿಂದಾದ ಕಲಿದೇವಯ್ಯ. - ಮಡಿವಾಳ ಮಾಚಿದೇವ ಸವಸ 8/682
