Daily Reflections: True Faith

True faith is really an unspeakable virtue which is beyond the scope of religion; it is the dauntless courage which leads us on to success; it is that ubiquitous force which makes our path smooth; it is in fact the only thing that solves our problem of life.

Gita Jayanthi

Gita Jayanthi

Gita Jayanti is a annual festival to recognize the day when Lord Krishna rendered Srimad Bagavath Gita to Arjuna on battlefield Kurukshetra.

Gita Jayanti is celebrated on Ekadasi tithi which is the 11th day of the waxing moon in the month of Margashirsha. This year it is celebrated on 2nd December. The Bagavath Gita is the most revered book in Hindusim and Spirituality. Lord Krishna defines what is the soul and its relationship to nature and the divine.

Daily Reflections: Right Path

The very first thing to be looked to seriously is that the path we select is the right one, leading directly to our goal. It is therefore quite essential to have in our mind a clear and definite conception of the final goal.... Hasty judgement in the matter often leads to disappointing results, for it is just possible that the path you have been persuaded to adopt may not be the right one leading to your destination.

Daily Reflections: Love & Marriage

I imagine that human beings have artificially romanticized love, and this is the consequence that we are able to love before marriage but not after marriage. We must learn to love him whom we must love and not be wayward in this vital matter. Which means that we have to develop the capacity to love the one chosen for us, irrespective of how the spouse is chosen, whether it is in the western way of love marriage or the eastern way of an arranged marriag

Daily Reflections: Do Good Now

There is an old saying in English, "I shall pass this way but once. Any good that I can do or any happiness that I can give, let me do it now, for I may never pass this way again." So, when you understand the profundity of life, that though the soul is perpetual, life is not a perpetual thing – not the bodily life – then you will feel that you don’t have much time to do what is good. Whatever good I must do, I must do it now.

Daily Reflections: Patience

"Woman only knows love, because she sends her children out to school, she sends her husband out to the office, and patiently waits until they come back, prayerfully perhaps, but patiently." Because prayer cannot supplant patience. Patience also shows faith that this will happen.

Daily Reflections:SecretThings

Secret things are not sacred. Like the weaponry strength of powerful nations – these are secret things but they are hateful, devilish, demoniac things; they are not sacred. So secrecy hides devilry. Sacredness veils something which is divine, which is higher in value, which cannot be exposed to the profane gaze.

Daily Reflections: Mind

Mind is the centre of this outer expansion of man in the form of human body, and everything which is exhibited through the medium of the body proceeds from the centre, the mind. If our mind comes to a harmonious state, circumstances and environments will have no effect on it and there will be no disturbance within. Peace and tranquillity shall reign all through under all circumstances.

Daily Reflections: Seeding

When Babuji Maharaj first gives us our first sitting, he calls it 'seeding'. He puts the seed of Himself into our heart. That is why the heart in yogic terms is called the hridayayoni. It is a creation of a new life where you are reborn within yourself as a new being, provided you allow that seed to germinate, water it with bhakti (devotion), shraddha (faith) and dhyana (meditation); then another Master comes there. Not Master as a Master, but exactly like the Master - another human individual.

Our Work: Reflections

Resignation does not, however, mean that he should remain idle, doing nothing himself and depending all the time upon God, thinking that God will send him all that he requires if he so wills. 'God helps those who help themselves' is a common saying which is literally true. We are failing in our sacred duty if we do not exert ourselves for the discharge of our responsibilities pertaining either to this or to the next world. The only thing which should be borne in mind is that we work in accordance with the will of God and feel contented with the result, whatever it might be.
