The Main Principle of Knowing the Truth

By Dr K K Aggarwal

The main figure in the Upanishads is sage Yajnavalkya, known as one of the greatest philosophers. Most of the great teachings of later Hindu or Buddhist philosophy are derived from him. He taught the great doctrine of neti-neti, the view that truth can be found only through the negation of all thoughts about it.

Brhadaranyaka Upanishad is the oldest and the most important of all the Upanishads. Its name actually means the great forest-book.

Sage Yajnavalkya’s dialogues with his wife, Maitreyi are featured in the Muni Kanda or Yajnavalkya Kanda. The doctrine of neti-neti suggests the indescribability of the Brahman, the Absolute. Yajnavalkaya attempts to define Brahman.

Atman is described “neither this, nor this” neti-neti. The Self cannot be described in any way. Na-iti – that is Neti. Through this process of neti-neti you give up everything – the cosmos, the body, the mind and everything – to realize the Self.

Once the Atman is defined in this manner, you become familiar with it, a transformation takes place as realization dawns that the phenomenal world and all its creatures are made up of the same essence of bliss.

Brahman is infinite, amorphous, colorless, characterless and formless Universal Spirit, which is omnipresent and omnipotent, and like cosmic energy, is pervasive, unseen and indescribable.

  • Neti-neti Meditation: The principle of neti-neti has been used in meditation involving gnana yoga. Whenever a thought or feeling comes to mind that is not the goal of the meditation, or is not the soul or the inner self, the meditator simply has to say, “Not this, not this,” and dismiss the thought, image, concept, sound, or sense distraction. Any thought, any feeling, is patiently discarded — again and again if necessary, until the mind is clear and the soul/or the self is revealed.
  • Neti-neti and the mind: When you get into the habit of neti-neti, you can also discard thoughts of worry, doubt, or fear, and become established in the light of your inner self. You can, then, look back at worries and fears with deep insight and handle them.
  • Neti-neti and the medical profession: One of the basic medical teachings is to diagnose a condition by way of excluding other similar conditions. This is called differential diagnosis and this is the mainstay of allopathy. This also makes one investigative-oriented but is the only scientific way of knowing the truth.
  • Neti-neti and multiple choice questions: In any modern exam today, the principle of neti-neti is used. A question has four nearly similar answers and the student has to answer the correct one. He can only answer by the principle of negation.
  • Neti-neti and police investigations: This principle is also used while handling a criminal case. Everyone is a suspect in the crime initially, till a process of elimination clears them.

Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha of Medical Profession

The eras of Ram and Krishna represent two different perceptions of life. While Rama taught us the message of truthfulness Krishna taught us when not to speak the truth and when speaking a lie is justified. The medical profession today cannot survive on the principles of Rama. According to principles of Krishna a truth which if spoken may cause harm to someone and if not spoken does not cause any harm may not be spoken. Similarly a lie which without harming the community may help a particular person or situation may be spoken. Doctors come across situations every day in their medical practice where speaking the truth may be harmful to the patient. Quite often false hopes are given and patients of terminal cancer are not told about their exact nature of illness and the prognosis. There is no way a doctor is going to tell the patient that you are going to die in the next 24 hours even if it is medically true. Dharma artha kama and moksha are the four basic purposes of life for which we are born. The basic purpose of life is to fulfill our desires in such a way that we end up in inner happiness. Fulfillment of desires should be done by following the principles of righteous or ethical earning. Most charges in the hospital settings are different depending upon the categories chosen by the patient. A single room patient invariably has to pay more than a patient admitted in the concessional three bed room or general ward. Even the charges of the treatment operation theatre investigations and consultations may be different depending upon the categories. Taking more money from the rich and helping the poor. This principle is more according to Krishna s principle than Rama s. Placebo therapy is a well established therapy in medical science which means treating the patient without giving the actual drug to a patient. The information that the drug does not contain any ingredient is withheld from the patient in this type of therapy. As per the literature 35 of illnesses and symptoms may resolve using a placebo and is based on the principle that the very feeling that a medicine is being given stimulates the inner body pharmacy and produces healing substances and chemicals. Nocebo effect on the other hand means that if the patient is told that your illness is not going to be cured even if medicines are given they may not act as the patient s body produces negative chemicals which neutralize the effect of medicines that otherwise are effective. Indian doctors were known for their social medicine which involves proper assessing of patients and their families financial status before deciding the treatment. There is no point giving options to a family to spend 10 15 lakhs of rupees for getting an ICD device implanted in the heart which may increase life span only by 1 or 2 years or improve quality of life for a few years to a family who cannot afford this amount of money and may have to sell their house or spend all the money saved for the marriage of their daughters. But today with the Consumer Protection Act applicable to the medical profession also not informing the family may even amount to negligence.

Medical Profession Follows Krishna and Not Rama

Teachings from both the epics of our country are taught to every child during school age. The first being Ramayana and the second being Mahabharata.

Ramayana depicts Lord Ram as the savior of truth and a person who lives in an atmosphere of truthfulness till the end. Ramayana probably is a reflection of the collective consciousness of Satyuga where the majority of the people believed in truthfulness.

The Tretya Yuga and Dwapara Yuga then followed, when the definition of dharma (to hold people together) changed as per the collective consciousness of the people. The teaching of Lord Krishna in Mahabharata was that you have to live with truthfulness but speaking a lie can be your dharma in special situations. He said that a lie which can save somebody’s life without affecting any other person may be spoken and a truth, which if spoken can hurt somebody or is not going to harm anybody if not spoken may not be spoken.

Today we are living in Kalyuga and the Krishna of today is every medical doctor treating a patient. For the interest of the patient and the society, if doctors were to follow the principles of Rama, miseries would have increased. We as medical professionals are taught the example of Krishna and not Rama. We are taught that our utmost duty is the comfort of the patient. In doing so we are taught not to tell a dying person that he is going to die or not to tell a cancer patient that he is going to die in the next 2 to 3 months.

As a part of our social commitment a job of a medical professional is to save the life of a person. Everybody knows that prostitution is a crime but both Govt. of India and National AIDS Control Organization (NACO) have a program in which they distribute free condoms to the commercial sex workers. Similarly, all addicts during de-addiction are provided drugs as a part of the prescription though the quantity has been defined to be lower than 5 grams. All addicts are treated and not put behind the bar.

The Law today state that an attempt to commit suicide is a crime (section 309 of the Indian Penal Code 1860) and consuming a drug is also a crime. But medically a doctor would look it differently. For him attempt to suicide is linked to an underlying depression and the patient needs a treatment and not jail. Addiction is a disease and every addict on similar grounds need de-addiction program and not jail.

The country’s Law is very harsh and needs to be changed. Probably when the law was made, addiction was not considered a disease.

Punishment for a person attempting to commit suicide should be to get a compulsory treatment for depression in a time bound manner and for an addict to get a complete de-addiction done in a time bound manner.

The answer is not punishment but rehabilitation. But till the Law is changed, the only way medical professionals can help patients who have attempted suicide is to write that it was accidental and patients who are addicts by showing that either it was accidental ingestion or he or she ingested an unknown substance.

Most doctors are taught not to do urine or blood test in such cases because if the test comes out to be positive, the police will have no other alternative than to arrest the addict and put them behind the bar.

The Law says that possession of cocaine in anybody’s house can amount to imprisonment. Will the same law apply to the Chief Minister or Lt. Governor of a state if cocaine is found in their state or Prime Minister of President of the country if cocaine is found in their country?

But if we look from the viewpoint of law makers, under section 64A in the NDPS Act, there is a provision that the court can direct drug addicts to get rehab done in a Govt. de–addiction centre. But most of the doctors are unaware about this. Doctors can easily label a patient as drug addict and save them. But how many people would like to be labeled as an addict or prefer a Govt. centre when best of the private sector de–addiction centers are available.

The bailable arrest of doctors in the Rahul Mahajan case was a clear indication for the medical professionals to stop thinking that they are next to God and they have any social responsibility. They should follow the rule book of the law and state observations as they are.

Amongst celebrities why do only cine stars commit suicide and not cricketers or politicians: What can be done to prevent them?

The death of Jiah Khan, the film actress, reopens up the debate on cine star celebrity deaths. Why do so many suicides occur in the film Industry? Despite similar failure rates, there are no suicides in politics or in cricket.

In cricket, we see cricketers under stress, they even lose their place in the team for years and yet they do not go in depression. The reasons may be the presence of a counselor in every team and opportunities to play in domestic games.

Will the film industry come out with guidelines for suicide and stress prevention?

We have seen cases of Raj Kiran and Parveen Babi (56) who were reported missing for years and nobody bothered. The same never happens in cricket. Parveen Babi was later found dead in her flat.

In the past, many (eight) cine celebrities have committed suicides.  These include Guru Dutt (39), Divya Bharti (19), Nafisa Joseph (26), Kuljeet Randhwa (30), Kunal Singh (31), Silk Smitha (35), Vijay Banerjee (37) and now Jiah Khan (25).

So is celebrity status a risk factor for suicide?

Suicides are also common in medical profession but not in nursing profession. They are hardly seen in cricketing celebrities.

Lifestyle disorders, including heart attack, diabetes, paralysis, liver disease, kidney disease and cancer are still the commonest causes of death amongst celebrities.

  • KL Sehgal (42), Geeta Dutt (41) and Meena Kumari (39) died of alcohol-related liver diseases.
  • 12 celebrities died of cancer: Nazia Hassan 35 (lung cancer), Nargis 51 and Jatin Kanakia 46 (cancer pancreas), Jennifer  Kapoor 51, Nutan 54, Rehman 58 (throat cancer), Rajender Kumar 69, Firoze Khan 69, Prithvi Raj Kapoor 70, Mac Mohan 72 (lung cancer), Shamim Desai (stomach cancer), Sujit Kumar 75.
  • Both Jagjeet Singh 70 and Amrish Puri 72 died of brain hemorrhage.

  • Mazhar Khan 45 and Shammi Kapoor 79 died due to kidney failure.
  • Only three died of infections: Geeta Bali 36 due to small pox, Bhimsen Joshi 89 and Jagmohan Mundra 62 due to pneumonia.
  • Only two celebrities were murdered: Gulshan Kumar 41 and Priya Rajvansh 63.
  • There was only one pregnancy-related death: Smita Patil 31.
  • Two died of prolonged illness: Mani Kaul 66 and Goga Kapoor 70.
  • One died of multi organ failure: Bhupen Hazarika 85.

Out of 61 celebrity deaths collected so far,  25 died of heart disease, 12 died of cancer, 3 died of liver disease, 2 of brain attack, 2 with prolonged illness, one pregnancy-related, 3 infections, 8 suicides, 2, kidney failures, 2 murders and one multiorgan failure.

On the other hand, amongst politicians a large number of them have died of unnatural deaths but there are no suicides. The number one cause of death however remains heart attacks or lifestyle illnesses.

Politicians who have died in air crashes include Netaji Subhash Chander Bose (alleged to have died in a plane crash), Homi J. Bhaba, S. Mohan Kr. Mangalam, Sanjay Gandhi, Ashok Birla, Surendra Nath, Madhav Rao Scindia, GMC Balyogi, OP Jindal, YSR Reddy and Dorjee Khandu. Three died in road accidents, Rajesh Pilot, Sahib Singh Verma and Giani Zail Singh.

Eleven politicians who have died of a heart attack are Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru 74, Zakir Hussain 72, Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed 71, Lal Bahadur Shastri 61, Krishna Kant 75,Dr.BCRoy 80, Dayanand Bandodkar 62, G Ramachandran 70, Sarojini Naidu 70, PV Narsimha Rao 83 and Arjun Singh 80.

Most cine celebrities died of heart attack before the age of 50 and none of the politicians died of heart attack before the age of 50.

Many politicians were assassinated: Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, LN Mishra, Mahatma Gandhi, Beant Singh, Phoolan Devi and Abdul Gani Lone.

Only two politicians died of cancer: Shri VP Singh and Chandra Shekhar (blood cancer)

One politician died of surgical complications: Sikandar Bakht and one died of multi organ disease: S. Venkataraman.

No suicidal deaths have been seen in cricketers or in politicians.

In one o the seminars Father Tomas compared all religious faith with honey. He said that honey bees go from one flower to another and collects nectar and it is the mix of the nectars from various flowers that honey is produced with its sweetness.

Similarly the aim of sarva dharma meetings should be to take the essence from all faiths and religions and combine them to make one that can be used as a prescription to achieve health and happiness.

Medical profession is also a religion as is based on all the principles of dharma.  For a doctor there is no religion, cast or creed. For him disease is a disease and his job is to cure a person of the sufferings and bring back happiness.

Doctors can be compared to a honey bee whose job is to get the best of all pathies and religions and use them holistically to treat a person.

Last week I visited Jaipur for the marriage of my friend’s son. I hired a car and a driver for the day. While I was in the car to pass time I asked the driver how much he earns. He said 6500 per month as salary and Rs 6000 as other charged. When I asked what you mean by other charges, he said that it is the same as you people earn through chemists and labs. I said what do you mean, He said this is what  Aamir Khan told in the TV that every doctor gets money from a chemist and a lab for referring a patient. Read more
