What does God want to give you today

 

images (4)

The Lord saw that the heart of man was very weak and always full of worry, sorrow and tension.  Therefore the Lord decided that He would assuage man’s heart by giving him twice of what he had lost.  To fulfill this objective the Lord used Maya-who he controls-to create a human form for Himself and came to the earth in the form of Lord Kalki.  On hearing the prayers of Radha, He took birth in the village of Sambhala that is on the border of Mathura-Vrindavan in the state of Uttarpradesh in India.  Another purpose of His incarnation was to give protection to the pious people of the world and destroy the evil-seekers and evil-doers. On the 2nd day of  Baisakh month, rising moon cycle, He took birth on the earth.

The Lord wants to give you those things that have everlasting value and He also wants to remove the burden of sin that lies heavy on your soul.  He wants to provide you security as well and he wants to bless you with abundance of all material objects but for this to happen, we have to have faith in the Lord and we must be worthy of the blessings that the Lord wants to bestow on us. The reason is that the person who is true and sincere is always blessed but the one who seeks wealth in a hurry always takes shortcuts that lead to sin. The one who bases his beliefs and actions on his unshakeable faith for the Lord, to such a person, the Lord offers peaceful protection therefore always have faith on the lord since the lord is an unshakeable rock.

The Lord bends to their knees those who hold high office and those cities that stand on high ground are brought low.  To such a Lord have unshakeable faith and you will receive strength and peace.  The Lord only wants that we-His children give their minds and hearts to Him, that they give their wisdom to Him and single focused remember and worship only Him.  When a man does that then God’s promise that He will give double of what is lost is fulfilled.

I am constantly trapped at every step by greed, lust, attachment and a desire to experience the world.

I am trapped everyday and regret my trapping everyday but am powerless to resist.

How to enter the spiritually oriented life ?

I address all those who believe in the primacy of the creator.  The one who makes oneness with the lord his aim of life, always finds peace The one  whose heart is filled with love for the lord finds liberation in this life itself. The one who is dependent on the lord finds nothing major going wrong since he is protected by the lord himself.  Nothing-not even the wind can harm such a person whose all difficulties, disease and unquenched and troublesome desires fade away.

It is not difficult to enter the spiritually oriented life but there are certain things that one should keep in mind if one wants to find success.  One’s lifestyle and thought process are critical in ensuring progress on the spiritual life.  The following guidelines should be kept in mind.

  1. It is better to trust God than to trust man. (The holy Bible Psalms 118:8)
  2. The one who trusts man is cursed and is liable to be betrayed ( Jeremiah 17:5)
  3. Do not depend on your thought process alone but keep faith in God (Proverbs 3:4)
  4. Do not have faith in the elders of society or any mortal since they do not have the power to grant you liberation (Psalms 146:3)
  5. By a seeker of the lord and try to find all the ways that lead to him and constantly desire his vision. (Psalms 105:4)
  6. The lord is not like man and therefore never lies or deceives and neither does he change his objectives or desires. Is there anything that he has promised and not done? (numbers 23:19)
  7. The person who walks on the path given by the lord, only he should be associated with and he only can be your friend, relative, brother or mother father. (Mark 3:35)
  8. Thrice a day-morning, noon and evening spend an hour in remembrance of the lord. That will keep you on the track and prevent you from committing wrong acts that take you away from the path. This will protect you as well (Shrimadbhagwat secrets)
  9. The lord said that spend three hours a day thinking of me and I will protect you for the remaining 21 hours (Shrimad Bhagwat secrets)
  10. The one who seeks the lord in his old age-his next life is an improvement over his last life but the one who gives his youth to the worship of the lord; he finds liberation in this life itself. (Shrimad Bhagwat secrets)
  11. By offering service to the lord by making physical efforts the attribute of tamas (inertia, sloth) go down. By offering service to the lord through money, the attribute of Rajas (desire driven actions) goes down and by offering one’s mind (attention) to the lord the attribute of sattva goes down.  Since the lord stands apart from all the three attributes hence if one wants to find the lord then one should offer service to the lord through all the three means mentioned above. (Shrimad Bhagwat secrets)

These then are the ways to enter the spiritual pathways that lead to the lord.  The reader has to take a decision about when he wants to actually start walking on this path rather than just thinking or reading about  it.

Why take the Lord’s name?

 

images (3)In the age of Kaliyug, taking and remembering and chanting the Lord’s name is the one easy way to liberation. The fruits that were obtained in the Sat Yuga by doing meditation, in the Treta Yuga by doing yagyas and in the Dwaapar Yuga by doing prayers are all obtainable in the Kaliyug by simply taking and chanting the Lords name.

Although the name of the lord is of great importance in all the ages but it is of special significance in the age of the demon Kali. This has been mentioned in all the Holy Scriptures.

Just as a lamp cannot be lit without a fire similarly one cannot cross the ocean of birth and death towards the liberation of the soul without remembrance of the Lord.

This is the simplest way.  That is, shift attention from the outer world towards the inner world by constantly remaining in remembrance of the supreme father.

By taking the Lord’s name, the thirst of the mind for the objects of the world reduces, the fear of death recedes and the eternal hope that resides in the soul is fructified.  By taking the lord’s name, the dirt and negative emotions of the mind are blown away and the Jeevatma becomes worthy of a real pilgrimage. The mind becomes still in the lord and the individual forgets his petty worries. And of course by being in constant remembrance of the lord the cycle of death and rebirth are also broken and the Jeevatma finds liberation. By surrendering to the Lord the being finds freedom from all the sorrow causing, negative things of life such as old-age, disease, worry, danger, fear of death.  By surrendering to the lord one finds safety from the difficulties of life and one finds oneself always under divine protection.

The name of the lord is an actual wealth for the devotee.  This wealth and goodwill is always needed by man.  When the Lord’s name falls from the lips of the devotee like drops of rain then all the fires and difficulties of life are extinguished. The lord’s name is the only way to find freedom.  The name of the lord is the real beauty of man and his crowning glory.

Taking the name of the lord with every breath is that necklace which makes an individual glow and makes him truly attractive.

To all the ladies who want to always remain beautiful, my advice is that rather than focusing on jewellery cloths and makeup, take the lords name constantly.  That will give both inner and outer beauty. Imagine how much money you and your husband will save!

The glory of the lord’s name is endless.  The way a servant walks behind his master, the lord himself walks behind his own name.  In the age of the demon Kali, the lord’s name has the protective qualities of the Kalp tree that protects and gives the desired fruit to the devotee.  The name of the lord is the mother & father in this life and the harbinger of the next world.  In Kaliyug, neither action, nor devotion nor knowledge can give liberation as easily as the chanting of the name of the lord.  Druva took the name of the lord and he was granted Druva lok.  Hanuman also kept the lord enchanted by chanting the lord’s name. Lowly Azaamil, Gaj and the prostitute Gadika also found liberation by taking the Lord’s name.  Lord Rama gave liberation to only a few people like Sugriva, Shabri, Jatayu and Vibhishan whom he met and kept around him but his name has given liberation to thousands of people over the millennia.

The point is that the name of Lord Rama is more powerful in giving liberation to the devotees than lord Rama himself.

Brahm-creation has two forms-manifest and unmanifest.  Naam or the lord’s name is greater than even them.

In short the name of the lord is the way in today’s age-Kaliyug and it opens the door to liberation.  After giving this knowledge, I now leave it to the wisdom of the devotee to himself discern about why he should take the name of the Lord.

Secret to Liberation

images (10)Secret means something that is hidden and is not part of general knowledge.  The question is-Why do people not find Liberation even when they say that they want it?  The reason is that the way to liberation is a secret way.  Brothers-remember that the boat has to be in the water-there is no other way for it to exist but if the water comes above the level of the boat then the boat sinks in the ocean.  In the same way, the mind has to live in this Sansaar-world but if instead of getting overwhelmed by the world and its pleasures and pains, if that mind is able to focus on the creator then that mind finds freedom and liberation.  If the things of the world; if outward appearances of things in the world and / or subjects concerning the world, arouse deep interest in the mind and come to reside in the mind then liberation is not possible.  Why is this so?  Because when the Jeevatma-the individual soul leaves the body at the time of death it forgets the body quickly but the Jeevatma does not forget the mind.  In fact it carries along the mind with it even after death.  It is the very same mind and its interests and desires that lead to the formation of the next birth of that Jeevatma.

We may obsess about our bodies but do we even remember the body we had in our previous births? But the mind of the earlier lives is alive in this body and till it desires the objects of this world it will continually come back to this world to experience those objects. This is what drives the cycle of birth and death.  Therefore if liberation is desired then the mind must be understood and its attachment to this ever-changing meaningless world must be redirected to the only true and eternal thing in this world-the supreme lord.

This is why I ask all of you to always put your attention on the supreme lord. Think of him all the time, Dream of him and imagine what he would be like.  When a majority of your attention is focused in this way progress towards liberation will be made.

This is the way but for most of us, money, business, happiness, sorrow, and other material objects are more important and the mind obsesses about these things rather than the lord.  Therefore I say to you that those things that bind you, those that naturally draw your desire and attention, surrender those very things to the lord.  But since you don’t do this, liberation is not achieved by you.

There is no need to do various acts to achieve liberation.  There is no need to close one’s eyes to the reality or take Sanyaas; there is no need to do Pranayam.  The negation of the mind happens naturally on its own when it has no resistance to anything outside itself.  When that states happens simply and without effort or resistance then liberation dawns on its own.  Therefore it is said that if donation is given by the left hand then even the right hand should not know about it so that the mind is not activated.  Who is the one in bondage?  It is the mind and therefore liberation is also of the mind.  The soul does not need liberation since its inherent state is that of liberation.

The soul is eternally free.  It always exists and never changes, ages or dies or is reborn.  The body dissolves into the five elements but the soul never changes and nothing can affect it. (Geeta 2:20) The soul simply changes bodies when a person dies just as I and you discard old clothes to wear new ones. (Geeta 2:22)

The soul can simply not be altered.  It cannot be cut nor burnt nor wetted nor dried (Geeta 2:23)

By constantly thinking about subjects and objects of the world the mind gets trapped in the world but if the mind goes inwards towards thoughts, dreams and imaginations about the supreme father then it is liberated and the work is done since the soul is already liberated.

There was a round pot with a narrow mouth.  Someone had kept chickpeas in that pot. A monkey came and put his hand inside the pot to take out the chickpeas.  The hand went in since it was open and straight but as the monkey grabbed the chickpeas he had to close his fist to extract the chickpeas.  Now the diameter of the hand became larger than the mouth of the pot and the monkey was unable to extract his hand as long his hand was balled into a fist.  The monkey sat like that crying that he was trapped and could not find liberation!  He yelled and shouted that he desperately wanted freedom and requested everyone’s help but refused to open his fist since that meant that he would lose the chickpeas!

How silly is that!  So if you feel trapped and feel that you are unable to find freedom inspite of trying hard then think about what your mind is obsessed with.  Think of that subject and release it, surrender it into the feet of the divine.  Also try to find out what and where the mind truly disappears.  If you can’t figure it out let me tell you.  The mind truly disappears only in the supreme lord.  Therefore put your attention only in the supreme lord and you will find freedom and liberation.
