To fill the ones who are hopeless with hope is the greatest service.

Message for the day 01-12-2015

Expression: To have faith by seeing the positive qualities even in the most negative person is to fill them with hope. Also to fill hope means to encourage others to move forward in the most negative situation. When this is done they are able to use their potentials for a positive purpose and slowly bring about a change for the better. 

Experience: When I am able to see positivity under all circumstances, I am able to have the courage and enthusiasm to make the best out of every situation. This also naturally makes me an inspiration for those around me too and makes me an image of support for those who want to make effort.

God And I - The Task We Share (Part 2)

Service of others is something which we have been taught right from the time when we were small children and our parents used to take us to the temple and teach us to put a few rupees from our pocket money into the temple money box. Do you remember the time when your mother gave you five rupees to donate to the school fund for the blind or for the deaf and also when your father bought you a bag full of coins to give each day to the nearby store which was collecting funds for little children with polio or those who were orphans. All this was taught to us when we were small. But, as we grew up, and became busy in our studies and grew into adults, these good giving habits were forgotten and we thought this was not something very important and we have the rest of our lives to do the same. Do you know that in our previous births, in traditional India, as a part of bhakti, we all have in total donated lakhs of rupees and ornaments (jewelry) in temples in the name of God, which used to be a fixed tradition and a part of our worship. Of course, we were not equally rich in each birth, but the traditional India in which remembrance of God started, saw kings and queens belonging to different states performing punya karma like donation to please God and also to make their own good destiny. That was the old India. And we are talking about a few thousands of years from now as per the knowledge of the world drama.

The India now and the world in general today have forgotten those old traditions because we became materialistic. As we all know, the remembrance of God today through different types of worship and the reading of religious books or shastras is no longer as popular as it used to be, especially in the modern world. These traditions were followed by our ancestors who were not people different from us but it was us, in our older physical bodies i.e. we as souls, in our previous births.
