“Hare Namaha”!

Standard

1st January, 2009, Thursday
Paush Shukla Panchami, Vikram Samvat 2065, Guruvar

Today after paying obeisance to Paramatma (namaskaaram), deeply
understand the following two points –

1) Importance of human body – It is only this human body that is
eligible and entitled to liberation. All other life forms do not
have the discriminative faculty to realize this.

2) Become firm and single-pointed in this one and only aim. Most
people are caught up in worldly matters. But you must be firm. Be
firm that this is the only work you will do from now onwards. Today
is a good day to begin. It does not mean to give up the other
things. It means that the aim is to only attain Paramatma, to
realize Paramatma.

Only human body can consider Bhagwaan as it’s own. Only human body
is capable of contemplating on Bhagwaan. Only human body can engage
others in Bhagwaan. This strength, this ability has been given by
Bhagwaan Himself. Bhagwaan has given this to us therefore it is our
job to properly utilize this ability. “Jaraa maran mokshyaaya…”.
What use is it to wait till old age to attain salvation? Become
firm today and remain committed to this aim now! Deeply commit –
There will not be another birth! I take refuge in Bhagwaan’s Lotus
Feet.

In Gita Chapter 7 it is clearly stated – Do everything, do your
duty! But depend on only Bhagwaan. Pride is an obstacle to
realization. Pride can give one all kinds of enjoyment/pleasure. I
am doing this great work! People are benefiting! etc. Instead, by
taking refuge in Bhagwaan, see every thing that is happening as only
His grace, then there will not be any pride. Therefore depend on
His grace. Depending on nature (Prakriti) – activity (kriya) and
things (padaarth) leads to pride. But while doing, if one is
depending on only Bhagwaan, then it will be His grace (kripa).

All is Bhagwaan’s! Everything! By using what Bhagwaan has given
us – His strength, His capability etc., become an instrument
(nimit). We are only an instrument. Just like Bhagwaan lifted
Govardhanji, by His tiny finger. He asked gopas to support with
their sticks, simply to make them feel good. But the minute they
became proud, He relaxed His tiny finger and the Gopas could not
bare the weight. Our strength does not work. Become nimit (only His
instrument). All work is happening by His grace. Apply all your
strength, but reliance must be only on Bhagwaan. What has been
given to us is all Parmatma’s, not ours. It is Bhagwaan’s nature to
give without letting us know that He is giving. “Krishnam Vande
Jagat Guru” All happens by His grace alone. Even death is by His
will and His grace. Wherever there is pride, become alert!
Immediately come to the realization that it happened by His grace.
Whatever good work is happening is happening by His grace. It is
not greatness of our intellect, our ability. It is not in our
hands. It is His grace. All good is happening by God’s
grace “Hare Namaha”. With deep sentiments, pay obeisance (bhaav se
namaskaar karo). “Hare Namaha”!
