Power of Faith
सत्त्वानुरूपा सर्वस्य श्रद्धा भवति भारत | श्रद्धामयोऽयं पुरुषो यो यच्छ्रद्ध: स एव स: ||
Bhagwad Gita 17, 3 "The faith of all humans conforms to the nature of their mind. All people possess faith, and whatever the nature of their faith, that is verily what they are.
A human being is nothing but a bundle of faiths, also known as beliefs, prejudices, customs, culture, tradition, basically, everything that is ingrained into us as samskaras or impressions. When we see a child prodigy perform a complicated symphony, we may say that she got this skill from non-stop practice since her birth, or we may say that she got it from her practice in a previous life. In any case, her actions are a product of the samskaras or impressions formed through countless hours of practice.
By default, the human mind is programmed to function out of a survival mindset. However, with right education human mind can change & must evolve, and this is where culture plays a big role than Nature. Culture nurtures our mind with a higher vision, values and ideals of life for its full-fledged experience & expression.
Sanatan culture had highly advanced sciences like Garbh samskara, where a pregnant mother & her unborn baby got regularly exposed to positive energies in form of mantra chants, energies of temples, holy men, scriptures, food, etc. so that the unborn baby is nurtured with spiritual & human values.
