Master’s Messages-5.3- Japa and Dhyana

Dhyana-Meditation and Japa- Chanting are the only ways to purify our minds.

japa

One need not read or listen to many scriptures if we can listen to the God residing in our hearts. If we call sincerely He will respond. We should just have the form of or favourite deity in our mind and constantly repeat His name. Dhyana-Meditation and Japa- Chanting are the only ways to purify our minds.

Master’s messages- 4.2- Unity in multiplicity

See divinity in all

 

At a time when there is so much disunity, disharmony, violence in the world; it is more important to realise unity in multiplicity. For this we have to develop tolerance, patience and love for all. We all have that spark of divinity in us. We have to work on realising that inner strength of divinity in us. We have to churn the milk if we wish to separate the butter immanent in it. Similarly, certain processes of thought and action has to get to the hard core of faith and that belief. One can work on this by consciously practising the human values. Soon we realise that the world is a mixture of real and unreal. Then we start the process of self-enquiry. People in spiritual path must be an example for this.

Master’s messages-4.1-Sat Chit Ananda

Sat Chit Ananda- oneness in all

satchitananda

Our life is saturated with Sat-Supreme Reality, Chit-Consciousness, Ananda-Bliss- Brahman itself. For the Divine life to start one must be aware that we are sat-chit- ananda.  The Divine inspires and activates every being; this spark of life or consciousness leads and fulfills the life of each being; right from the simplest to the most complex. Lord or consciousness is in each one of us. When we start realizing this, we will be ever alert and careful in our every thought, word and deed. Then we see the oneness of all which is the ultimate purpose of life.

Guru is the one who dispels the darkness of ignorance in us

When one is inclined towards the spiritual path; he starts pursuing in that path but without proper direction; gets lost. Hence the need for a guru who will guide him and lead him to the ultimate.

Gu – Gunateetha-one who has transcended the 3 gunas namely rajas, tamas and satwik.

Ru- Rupa varjita- one who has grasped the formless aspect of God head by sublimation of lower to higher qualities. Guru is the one who dispels the darkness of ignorance.

Have the faith undiminished

One must be firm and fixed in their faith. Once convinced we should not waver. When sun is directly over our head there will be no shadow similarly when faith is steady in our head it should not cast shadow of doubt. Lord comes in human form age after age to warn and guide us. When faith is undiminished one can move safely in the world. No harm can come to us. One must be vigilant on the goal with inner concentration.

Master’s messages-Vol 1- 3.5- Keep the faith in the Lord

Keep the faith in the Lord undiminished

faith in god

Essence

One must keep their faith in the Lord undiminished. Biggest obstacle is ego and possessiveness. These are with us since many ages. It can removed only by discrimination and renunciation. Bhakti, japam, dhyanam and yoga will help to remove this quickly. We must proceed slowly and steadily, making sure of each step as we proceed; so that we do not fall backwards.
