Man must always proceed towards 'Balam' (strength); he should not take to untruth, wickedness and crookedness, all of which denote the fundamental trait of cowardice. This cowardice is born out of accepting an inferior and false image of oneself. You believe that you are the husk, the outer covering. But, truly you are the kernel, the core. This false identification is the fundamental mistake. All Sadhana (spiritual effort) must be directed towards the removal of the husk and the revelation of the kernel. So long as you say "I am so and so", there is bound to be fear, but once you say and feel "I am God", you get unconquerable strength.

For establishing oneself in the contemplation of the omnipresent Lord, there are no limitations of time and place. There is nothing like a holy place or auspicious time for this. Wherever the mind revels in the contemplation of the Divine, that is the holy place. Whenever it does so, that is the auspicious moment.


7th September 2008

People say that the service to man is the service to God, that Manava Seva is Madhava Seva. This is true. However, even though the service of humanity is holy, unless it is merged in the higher ideal, men will not benefit, however much the service undertaken. Whatever is done with the Lord in mind, along the path of truth and righteousness, alone can be considered to be service of the Lord. Whatever service is done for gaining name and fame, and for enjoying the fruits thereof, cannot be referred to as service of God.



6th September 2008

Each one should ask himself the question: spiritually realized persons were also persons like me; they were also embodied beings. When they could attain perfection, can I also not succeed if I follow their method? What profits me if I spend time in discovering the faults and weakness of others? Therefore the first Sadhana (spiritual endeavour) is to search for the faults and weaknesses within yourself and strive to correct them and become perfect.




5th September 2008

Like the wind that covers everything with dust, desires and attachments cloud the mind. They have to be kept away so that the splendour of the self might merge in the splendour of the Higher self, the Paramatman (God). The process of purifying the consciousness of man in the crucible of single-pointed thought, speech, feeling and activity directed towards God, will rid him of all blemishes and defects. When the inner consciousness has been rendered pure and unsullied, God will reside therein. Then man will experience the vision of God within him.
