Aum Sri Sai Ram
March 25, 2011.
Our Beloved Lord’s last Darshan at the sanctified premises of Sai Kulwant Hall, Prasanthi Nilayam. Consequently, for reasons known best to Bhagawan and which none of us with our brimming-with-worldly-thoughts finite minds can ever comprehend and should never even try, Swami chose to withdraw from the physical.
Each of thought, word and deed in our innate ignorance…lacking in Sathya, Dharma, Shanti, Prema and Ahimsa, for all beings creation through were, for me, like daggers and arrows upon His Physical Frame.
He taught so much…we heard, but, did we listen?
So, here we are – it is 24 March 2020…and what are we doing now?
We are facing the ‘carona virus’ an invisible enemy…as invisible as the enemies within.
Haven’t we spoken, heard, listened, churned every word along the waves of whatsapp messages and forwards?
On the threshold of this Sadhana Aradhana Month dedicated to our Beloved Bhagawan, our Cherished Swami, should we not bring in a bit of a restraint?
Caution, precaution is the need of the hour, however excessive indulgences on talk and focus upon the present epidemic is not going to help ease the situation. Let us shun the disproportionate attention being given to the virus through the whirl of messages swirling to and fro.
We attract into our sphere, our consciousness, what we constantly ruminate upon. In order to manifest healing and better times we need to emanate positivity. We need to draw into our circle expressions, feelings, and sentiments which are buoyant and gleam with positive affirmations.
For this the fear, the anxiety, the worry, the what’s-going-to-happen feeling, the dread and distress, etc…which is being spread through wanton, unrestrained messaging should certainly be avoided.
Let us seek an answer to this within us…where the Lord resides.
The Name of the Lord is the surest way out of any situation. The energy it carries is tremendous…and tremendously effective. All it needs is Faith, Belief and Intensity.
Hope is based on expectation…however, Faith is Eternal.
harer-nama harer-nama harer-namaiva kevalam kalau nasty-eva nasty-eva nasty-eva gatir anyatha…
Hari nama, Hari nama, Hari nama – the Name of the Lord…is the foremost way, the only path to achieve emancipation, from anything and everything. There is no other way, no other way, no other way in this age of Kali.
This is the time to offer gratitude, respect, prayers, seek forgiveness as well as mercy for all and to participate in a flow of deep, profound selfless love.
All we need to do is repeat every now and then –Dear Lord…I love You, I thank You, Please forgive Me, I am sorry. These sentences have love, kindred harmony, gratitude, repentance too…and when we offer it in humility to God…we are offering it to every being creation through.
Have we kept a track of whom we may have hurt or caused pain in this lifetime, all lifetimes…knowingly or unknowingly?
It is a period of deep cleansing for earth…and so to for us earthlings who live upon her terrain.
Mother Earth needs our love, the five elements need our love, we need our love, our loved ones need our love, all people need our love, all animals, birds, aquatic creatures, trees, rivers, etc…need our love. The environment needs our love and prayers.
What is prayer…?
Peace Radiating As Your Eternal Reflection – is prayer.
Love in thought, word and deed is Prayer.
If only we individually, collectively visualise Bhagawan in the centre of the Globe…and the Earth gently circumambulating Him…overflowing with His energy…what a difference it would make to us all. The essence of His Karuna…His ‘Karuna Ras’…will forcefully negate the carona virus.
Come, let us steadfastly, constantly, devotedly, adoringly, solely and wholly focus on His Mercy, His Grace, His Magnanimity, His Compassion, His Love…be open and receptive enough to so empower ourselves with it so as to achieve victory over the present circumstance while awakening our own divinity.
Our dedicated Sadhana is what is required of us at this juncture…the period of time is the same as March – April 2011.
Let us pledge our time, heart, mind and soul to Beloved Bhagawan.
We owe our Aradhyaa a befitting Aradhana.
Santhusti For Samasth Shrishti.
