       Bráhman- supreme universal Spirite
Brahman {Bráhman- Brahma nominative singular, Brahman neuter gender means the Great Cosmic Spirit, e.g. Brahmanda from stems brha (to expand) +anda (egg), means universe as an expansion of a cosmic egg (Hiranyagarbha), or the macrocosm} is the one supreme, universal Spirit that is the origin and support of the phenomenal universe. Bráhman is sometimes referred to as the ‘Absolute’ or ‘Godhead’ which is the ‘Divine Ground’ of all being. Bráhman is conceived as personal ("with qualities"), impersonal ("without qualities") and/or supreme

depending on the philosophical school. The Mundaka Upanishad says:"Aum" - the supreme Brahman is infinite, and this conditioned Brahman is infinite. The infinite proceed from infinite. If you subtract the infinite from the infinite, the infinite remains alone. In the Upanisads the sages teach that Brahman is infinite Being, infinite Consciousness, and
infinite proceed from infinite. If you subtract the infinite from the infinite, the infinite remains alone. In the Upanisads the sages teach that Brahman is infinite Being, infinite Consciousness, and infinite Bliss (saccidananda- sat-chit-ananda, meaning
“Being — Consciousness — Bliss”. The eternal philosophy as appeared in Upanishad is reflected in various Shanti Mantras, few of them are mentioned below for ready reference


       Profit motivated happiness versus Indian spiritual happiness

With global economic recession in 2008, gross national product (GNP) based on ‘product’, ‘production’, and ‘profit’ with classification of population as rich, middle and poor class is being considered as improper yardstick of development indicators. ‘Profit motivated happiness’ on destructing cultural and social values; natural environments are growingly debated against the index of prosperity. Economists like Amartya Sen, Joseph Stiglitz, Jeffrey Sachs, George Soros, and Paul Krugman favor expansion of development indicators, accounting for ‘softer’ or intangible values like environment, social and general well being of the society with a long term time horizon. Institutions like World Bank is now forced to think alternatives akin to yardstick fixed for gross national happiness (GNH) based on four pillars viz. promotion of equitable and sustainable socio-economic development, preservation and promotion of cultural values, conservation of natural environment, and establishment of good governance. Hence ‘profit-mongering’ globalize society is likely to be transformed into ‘think globally-act locally type of social happiness’, when Brahmins, being the backbone of Hindu society, would have a role for preservation and promotion of cultural values in India.

       Problems of priesthood service for clientele or congregation in modern society

India has increasingly become a westernized culture with new ideas of modernization among educated citizens. But in spite of that there is no substantial erosion of faith on Vedic tradition and rituals; rather it has sharply increased in recent times for mental peace and happiness of the people. Individuals both Brahmin and non-Brahmin belonging Hindu faith are to depend on voluntary clientele or congregation of a priest from birth to death, during festivities or during mourning. Most of the Brahmins are however, nowadays opting for gaining public education, restaurant dining (a point of debate from orthodox and modern view), popular fashion etc. As such there is dearth of qualified Purohita / Pujari or priest to guide and to perform various rituals in the Hindu society.

Again Brahmin priest, in absence of any institutional patronization, has to compromise the choice between modernity and tradition, as regard personal comforts, sacrifice of modern life style and opportunities. Applying ancient values in modern context, a priest has to struggle in dilemma amid tension to meet contemporary modernizing forces, social divisions and regional variations. The traditional Sanskrit based institutions on imparting rituals of regional importance or on Veda have lost attraction due to obvious factors of modernization. On the other hand, all priests cannot economically afford to attend Vedic instructional facilities elsewhere on keeping option for other economic avocations. To regain their respect and legitimacy in public, familial or domestic priesthood jobs, some of them, who are lucky, get themselves somewhat trained in minimum religious texts and ritual performances by becoming apprentice under a senior priest. Some of the priests’ devotees however, care little about priest’s educational qualifications and emphasize more about their charisma, counseling abilities, and capacity to conduct an aesthetically pleasing ritual performance. All these bring intellectually inferior service from the selected priests. This situation not only lowers the standard of training in Vedic rituals but also lower their esteem before the general people in the society
