"The world is spiraling toward conflict, belligerence, and disharmony and is now going through an unprecedented social and spiritual crisis, class confrontation, calamity, and nuclear and terrorist threats. The rise of drug use, broken families, the number of single parents, the rise of school and public place mass shootings, suicides, and depression, the rise of sexual scandals among priests and media. The rise in the overuse of iPads and spartphones by young kids are threatening our home, society, schools, and the environment with vicious violence, menacing insecurity, wild protests, and rampant immorality. ...Based on the Vedas, the Upanishad, the Brahma Sutra, and the Bhagavad Gita, the Vedic values are declining." -Nirode Mohanty ("Preface")
