Kolkata: In a world where boundaries are becoming increasingly blurred due to advancements in technology and communication, free trade, ease of travel, it becomes tempting for Indians to embrace new cultures and social trends.

In addition, they often look down upon traditional Indian customs as being antiquated and not in touch with the real world today. Before we neglect or undermine our Indian traditions and customs, we should understand that they have a scientific basis, and that there is a reason to adhere to them over modern trends. Indian culture is inherently based on customs that increase the spiritual purity (sattvikta).

That is why by taking up sattvik Indian customs will help make a world a sattvik place, said Mrs. Sandip Kaur Munjal of Maharshi Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay while presenting the research paper titled 'Why Indian culture should be protected from westernisation'.She was speaking on the 8th of January 2019 in the 'International and Interdisciplinary Conference Reason, Culture and Morality' conference held from 7th to 9th January 2019 in Kolkata. The conference was organised by the The Institute of Cross Cultural Studies and Academic Exchange and The Society for Indian Philosophy and Religion. His Holiness Dr. Jayant Athavale is the author of this research paper; Mrs. Sandip Kaur Munjal and Mr. Sean Clarke being the co-authors.

Mrs. Munjal further said that in Chapter 14 of the Shrimadbhagwadgeeta Shrikrushna explains how Sattva, Raja¸ and Tama, which make up all of visible and invisible creation, impact a person, society and the environment. When sattvikta in society increases, there is peace and prosperity along with spiritual progress. Alternatively, when there is an increase in the Raja-Tama subtle-components, it means that there is an increase in the spiritual impurity or negativity and this adversely impacts not only an individual, but society at large leading to various problems.

In this paper, five everyday examples of decisions that people make (traditional vs. modern) have been analysed using modern scientific equipment such as the Universal Thermo Scanner, Polycontrasr Interference Photography etc. along with advanced sixth sense. These examples are - hairstyles for women, designs of jewellery, diet, colours of clothes and festivals. The following were the conclusions of the experiments.

1. A bun is more sattvik than leaving the hair loose or tying it in a ponytail.

2. Among two necklaces made of gold, only the one with a sattvik design emits positive vibrations.

3. Having non-vegetarian diet increases the negative energy in a person while wiping out any positive energy he may have.

4. White colour emits sattvik vibrations whereas black emits Tama predominant vibrations.

5. Traditional Indian festivals like Gudhi Padwa are sattvik, whereas modern celebrations like the 31st December celebrations are tamasik. The primary purpose of celebrations on the 31st midnight is decadent enjoyment and very often we have tamasik behaviour in New Year Parties. On the other hand, Gudi padwa is celebrated at the most sattvik time of the day, i.e early morning by ritualistic worship and seeking the blessings of God for the coming year.

Through regular spiritual practice as per universal principles, over a period of time a person himself develops the ability to perceive the subtle-vibrations emanating from various objects, activities or events. Hence, one is able to discern in a better way what is spiritually good or bad for oneself. Once this ability is developed, intellectual explanations are not necessary. Just by perceiving subtle-vibrations alone, it becomes easier to understand the importance of following traditional Indian customs first-hand, which are based on spreading sattvikta. This will eventually lead to the world becoming a sattvik place.
