There is only one – THY

Standard

There is one Ishvar (God), and he is the master of all. You can see
that even in little colony of ants, there is one who is the main
one. Among bees, there is one main queen bee. Similarly among all
human beings, there is one great one. Ishvar (God). By believing in
That One, there is great gain. Who will protect us? If we believe
that Ishvar is our master then all work will become easy. Great
work will become even greater. Due to not having this belief, one
feels lack of peace. The most important thing is to consider
Bhagavaan (God) as our very own. He is our master. There is no one
greater than Him. No one more intelligent than Him. “Na tvat
samobhya”.

It is also stated clearly that – “Ishvar Ansh, Jeev Avinaashi Chetan
Amal Sahaj Sukhraashi” We are also part of that imperishable,
consciousness, flawless, full of bliss element. Only bliss is our
natural state! And inspite of being blissful, out of affinity with
the perishable element, we have become base. (so maayaa bas bhayo
gosaayi ) Thoughts such as “I am wealthy” and believing yourself to
be great because you are wealthy or considering someone great
because they are well-known, or that they have a huge following etc
is the illusory power of Maya. The only reason we are great is
because of Paramatma. There is no greatness in us regarding
anything else. Paramatma is the Master. The reason we believe
ourselves to be perishable is because of the illusive powers
of “Maya”.

We are like that monkey, who is trapped by his own ignorance. The
monkey trapper simply places a rounded pot filled with nuts and
keeps it for the monkey. The monkey arrives and puts both his hands
inside the rounded pot to get the nuts. But being greedy, he grabs
with both hands and taking a handful of nutsm he is unable to
withdraw his hand out of the narrow top. Now the monkey feels
trapped even though there is nothing holding his hand into the pot.
We too are just like the monkey. We feel ourselves to be trapped.
There are no bondages. We consider ourselves to be bonded. Even
the educated ones consider themselves to be totally trapped. In the
clutches of Maya. The traps of likes and dislikes.

Please therefore believe in God. He is the Master of all. He
Naath! (O Father ! ). Call out to Bhagavaan. But instead, we
continue to remain trapped in perishables. We busy ourselves in
collecting things, in enjoyment of pleasures etc. Parents are
attached to children. They feel simply trapped and don’t know how
to get out of that trap. They know about all other things – how to
make money, hwo to acquire and hoard things, all about beauty and
natural health remedies, about Ayurveda, or homeopathy etc. But
when it comes to this, they are simply not able to give up
attachment.

As long as we keep thinking that the perishable things are ours and
for us, till then we are in bondage. We are trapped. This house is
mine and for me. Nothing will come with us, yet we are totally
trapped in this business. Someday we will have to leave from this
business. If you are one of those that is trapped, call out to
God. Your mind will be purified. Depend only on Bhagavaan. Call
out to Bhagavaan. All your sorrows will come to an end. Educated
or uneducated, there is no difference, when it comes to drowning
there is no difference. Similiarly with a true heart call out to
Him and recite His name.

Those who do satsang, will see a change. They will definitely be
purified. I have seen in villages, those that have been engaged in
satsang have changed. Though overall there are very few that know
the true essence. Just like there are very few men that really
know, but each and every one of you can know. I have complete faith
that you all know, but you do not stay with it. You do not believe
in it. You do not become firm on these points. You do not aim for
Bhagavaan, inspite of knowing that on engaging in satsang you feel
peaceful, feel contented, then to you do not make any effort to
engage in satsang. You do not respect your own insights, your own
understanding. Without Bhagavaan, you will not be in peace.
Becoming someone’s disciple will not necessarily lead you to peace.
It will only create a different organization, a different group
etc. Instead with a true and simple heart call out to God.

There was a man who was in a painful and sorrowful state. He went
to a saint for help. The saints told him that whatever is the
largest object you have at home, repeat the mantra – “Turn into
gold.” Do this for 24 hours. He did so, for the entire day and
night, and when the completion of the 24 hours were nearing and he
did not see it changing to gold, his mind said that since it is not
changing to gold, minimally make it of iron. The pot turned into
iron. Such is our lives too. It happens in all most cases, we
think and desire iron instead of gold (Bhagavaan). We do not
believe in the Bhagavaan and His powers. True things are rare.
Therefore call out to Bhagavaan. Do it and see for yourself, call
out to Bhagavaan. There is no loss in trying it out, no harm
whatsoever. Therefore try to do so. He Naath, He Naath, He Naath
