Few breath and God

Few breath and God

This material world is subject to change. None of this is permanent here and everything whether living or nonliving is subject to change. The change is the undeniable truth of this material world. The more we get ourselves attached to the material world, the more we have to suffer when conditions start changing suddenly, and living and non-living things start to leave us due to law to constant change which is the primaeval truth of this material world. 


In Satyuga, the age of truth, the life of a person was very long but in the age of Kaliyuga, the age of quarrel and hypocrisy, the age of the person is very short. It does not mean that we should enjoy senses and indulge in material sense gratification as much as possible within this short span of life but we should do as much as devotional service to God and spiritual master without waiting for another second. This material world is a dangerous place to live in that is evident by crimes, wars, pandemic, exploitation, discriminations, communal riots, natural disasters, accidents. You cannot be sure of the safety of you and your family. 


In Satyuga, the age of truth, the people although have a long life to live but they spent the larger part of their life in austerities, penances, devotion to the spiritual master, and meditation. If people in Kaliyug, the age of quarrel and hypocrisy, start devoting a major part of their life in devotion service to God and spiritual master, recitation of guru mantra provided by the spiritual master then their life will be successful. In Kaliyug, the age of quarrel and hypocrisy, the only way to liberation from the cycle of birth and death is the recitation of Hare Krishna Maha-mantra.

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare

Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare.


The bliss is dependant on spiritual progress and devotional service to God and Spiritual Master and singing glories of God. The spiritual master gives us warning time and again that life is short so spend it in devotional service to God and keep yourself always in remembrance of God and inculcate the best qualities as much as possible and shun bad qualities as fast as can to enjoy real bliss in this life. 

Best age for progress in spiritual life and devotional service to God is from 25 years to 50 years when the body is strong and energetic and your formal education is almost over and the majority of people started earning by this age. In childhood day, the brain is not well developed to understand spiritual life and in old age from 60 years onward, the body loses energy and strength gradually with time and eventually becomes unfit for spiritual progress. 

God has sent us here to do devotional service to God so as to able to return to the abode of God but if we return empty-handed to the court of God of death without performing our real work for which we have been given this human body then we will be ashamed of wasting our time and trust of God. We have done unprofitable business with a wealth of breaths given by God to get liberation from the continuous cycle of birth, death, old age and disease. 

Youth should be used for spiritual progress instead of material sense gratifications as death can come any day without any warning and spoiling your all plans of the future. You will reach old age is also not certain. 

Please spend every precious breath in remembrance of God. Start spiritual life from your youthful days.

Thanks for reading the blog.

All thanks and obeisances to my spiritual masters and God.

PURE CONSCIOUSNESS

PURE CONSCIOUSNESS
Here God Krishna is saying to Arjuna that to be in pure transcendental consciousness, it is necessary for a person to give up all the varieties of sense gratifications which arise from engagement of senses as per urges of satisfaction of gratifications on the direction of mind which is not stable and wandering here and there and which is the friend and enemy of a person. 

Mind is our friend if we are able to control it and mind is our enemy if we allow ourselves to be controlled by it. These urges for the satisfaction of material sense gratification arise because of the tendency of mental concoction in us which make us believe something which is not true. 

It is just like if we add different ingredients in a new way to make some new meal. Our mind has a tendency of mental concoction as it picks some part of the story from somewhere and remaining parts from some other stories and presents a new picture in front of us which appears to be astonishing but in reality, the n…

Pious Manners

Pious Manners 
There is a chain of events to reach soul happiness. It starts from good thoughts and good thoughts lead to good manners and it leads to the pious mind and which leads to soul happiness. 


It is in the company of Saints/sages/good people that we generate or inculcate good thoughts. A good company is the requisite for self-realization. The biggest hindrance to self-realization is arrogance and pride. Humility is the most important factor for self-realization. The way you thought the way you work. Keep your thought pure to do goods actions which leads to good habits or manners. Thoughts engrossed in material things leads to unhappiness. Godly thoughts are our real Saviours. Bad thoughts are like seeds of thorn yielding plants.

Keep a vigil on the three main sense organs such as eyes, mouth, ear. Engage these sense organs in devotion to God or else they will drag you down to hell. Whatever we hear, see, or speak has a tremendous effect on our mind and consciousness. Engage ear …

Brahman is non-destructive and exists eternally without any change. Karma creates the material bodies of living entities. Karma forces us to take a new body after our death. It may be a body of human, bird, animal, or any demigod depending on the consciousness in which we left our last breath. We keep the remembrance of God in our entire life so that at the last moment of our life, we should not miss the chance to go back to where we actually belong and that is the abode of the home of our God. 

Hear, remember, the chant holy name of God isthree pillars of our life of spiritual realization. The material nature is consistently undergoing changes. Change is the bitter truth of life. We should not get ourselves attached to the material world consisting of our family, society, nation, relatives, bank balance, home, property, and other material things otherwise we will feel immense pain when a constant and continuous change of material nature will snatch these things from us. Yo…

Humility

Humility
Humility is the prerequisite for advancement on the path of self-realization and devotion to God. Our spiritual master has instructed us through holy sermons and discourses that we should be humble to deal with pride and false ego in us. 

This humble nature protects us from persons puffed up with a false sense of proprietorship, ego, and pride. Some venomous persons remain enthusiastic about how to pick a quarrel with anybody without any good reasons as they are blind due to power, money, false ego, pride, and muscle power. They love to hurl abuses, insult, and humiliate anybody without any good reason. This age which is called "Kaliyug" is the age of hypocrisy and quarrel.


The best way to deal with these people is to remain humble and increase the quality of humility in us. Whenever you come across these types of people than just remain humble and pacified them with your humility. We do not have to hurt their pride or ego but try to put our point peacefully and try to…

Concentration

ConcentrationAs per Bhagavad-Gita, the devotee who concentrates his mind on God Shri Krishna will reach the abode of God after death if he remember God Shri Krishna at the time of his death. The concentration of mind towards God should be just like the concentration of women towards water collected in an earthen pot which they carry over their heads while returning to home after filling water in the earthen pot from a pond located far away from their home. This scene is quite visible in Indian villages. The women placed the earthen pot on their heads and do not allow water to spill from the pot although they travel large distances on uneven ground and keep talking to each other while walking but because their concentration remains in the water of the pot. Similarly, Juggler juggling with balls and acrobat making balance on a tight rope are other examples of strong concentration that help these people perform well in their profession. Gymnastics are also known for their high concentrat…
