WHAT'S THE EASIEST WAY TO FREE OURSELVES FROM DIFFICULTIES AND TROUBLE?

OMNIPOTENT SAYS:-
The Himalayas or 'Himachala' forms the Northern boundary of India. 'Hima' means ice. It is white in colour and melts easily. Whiteness symbolizes purity. 'Achala' means that which is steady. Your heart should also be like the Himachala - pure, steady and which melts with compassion. God resides in each and every heart that is pure, steady and full of compassion. But today, many hearts have lost these noble qualities due to limitless desires. Life is a long journey and your desire is the luggage. The journey of your life will become enjoyable only when you reduce the luggage of desires. Less luggage, more comfort makes travel a pleasure! The Gita teaches that you should offer everything to God (Sarva Karma, Bhagavadh Preethyartham). You must perform every single action with the only goal to please God. This is the easiest and most effective way to be free from all difficulties and hardships.

DO WE REALLY NEED TO PRAY HARD FOR WHAT WE WANT

OMNIPOTENT SAYS:-
Control your desires. Cultivate love for God. That love will confer on you everything you need. There is no need for you to ask anything from God. Did Rama not give to Shabari what she needed without her asking? Did He not bless Jatayu with His Grace? Dasharatha had prayed for so long that his son should perform the last rites for him. But he did not get it, while the bird Jatayu got the privilege of a few drops of water from Rama before its death and attained liberation. Rama even performed his last rites. Mother Shabari was eagerly waiting for Lord Rama's arrival with sweet fruits for several years. Her intense devotion to the Lord fetched its reward – God confers His Grace (anugraha) according to each one's deservedness and it cannot be secured by agraha (force or power).

WHAT'S THE EASIEST WAY TO ATTAIN THE LORD?

OMNIPOTENT SAYS:-
Let us not relate to God as a hidden, invisible entity. God doesn't live in a place foreign to your dwelling. He is installed in you. He is with you, in you, above you, around you and below you. We have forgotten the easy way to reach God. All sufferings will vanish in no time if we sincerely call out to the Lord and sing His glory. The Lord's Name is the only refuge to cross all the difficulties. There is nothing greater or mightier than His Name. The moment one chants His glory and sings His name, one attains bliss. Meditation and many rituals were followed in many ages, but in Kali age, chanting God's Name (Namasmarana) is the only way to attain the Supreme.

HOW CAN WE LEAD A LIFE OF SELF RESPECT,FEARLESSNESS AND CONFIDENCE

OMNIPOTENT SAYS:-
With the Lord's name as the very breath of your life, engage in all life's activities, with no fear of fall. When the mind weds worldly activity (pravrithi), the progeny is bondage; when it weds spiritual renunciation (nivrithi), the progeny is freedom. Nivrithi confers fearlessness, and grants strength and courage, for it is desire that weakens man and makes one cringe. Detachment endows you with self-respect, and the capacity to stand up to slander and calumny. There are some who weep at the slightest sign of defeat or disappointment. This is despicable behaviour. When the Lord is installed in the altar of your heart why should you have fear or sorrow? Do you not know He is there, guarding you and guiding you? He is in all beings, always. Remember this fact wherever you are and whatever you may do. If only you do not give up the recitation of His Name you will succeed.

WHAT'S THE SIGNIFICANCE WE MUST LEARN FROM DIWALI

OMNIPOTENT SAYS:-
The festival of Deepavali is to express gratitude at the defeat of the Naraka (demonic) tendencies in man, which drags one down from Divinity. Naraka, whose death at the hands of Krishna is celebrated today, signifies hell. Narakaasura is the personification of all the traits of character that obstruct the upward impulses of man. The human being is a composite of man, beast and God, and in the inevitable struggle among the three for ascendency, you must ensure that God wins, suppressing the merely human and the lowly beast. The griha (home) where the Name of the Lord is not heard is a guha (cave), and nothing more. As you enter it, as you leave it and while you are in it, regularly perfume it, illumine it and purify it with the Name. Light it as a lamp at dusk and welcome it at dawn, as you welcome the Sun. That is the genuine Deepavali, the Festival of Lamps.

DIWALI MUTHANGI ALANKARAM 2014


DURGA & MANI

WHAT'S THE RESOLVE WE MUST TAKE TO BRING ILLUMINATION TO OURSELVES

OMNIPOTENT SAYS:-
Do not be elated by riches, status, authority, intelligence, etc., which you may have. Consider that they have been given to you on trust, so that you may benefit others. They are all signs of His Grace, opportunities of service, and symbols of responsibility. Never seek to exult over others' faults; deal sympathetically with the errors and mistakes of others. Seek the good in others; hear only good tidings about them; do not give ear to scandal. On the occasion of Deepavali, resolve to light the lamp of Namasmarana and place it at your doorstep, the lips. Feed it with the oil of devotion; let steadiness be the wick. Let the lamp illumine every minute of your life. The splendour of the Name will drive away darkness from outside you as well as inside. You will spread joy and peace among all who come near you.

RAJA ALANKARAM OCT 19 2014


DURGA & MANI

WHERE IS GOD?

OMNIPOTENT SAYS:-

God is inscrutable. He cannot be realised in the outer objective world; He is in the very heart of every being. You extol God as omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent, but ignore His presence in you! Who can affirm that God is this or that? Who can confirm that God is not of this form or with this attribute? Each one can acquire from the vast expanse of the ocean only as much as can be contained in the vessel one carries to its shore. From that quantity, they can grasp but little of that immensity. Gemstones have to be sought deep underground; they do not float in mid-air. Seek God in the depths of yourself, not in the tantalising, kaleidoscopic Nature. The body is granted to you for this high purpose; but you are now misusing it, like the person who used the gem studded gold vase that came into his hands as an heirloom for cooking his daily food.
