    Focused sun light burns a rock - please see video and -Bhagawan's Thought for the day - 22nd Dec 2010

    Please see the video of BBC on how a focused sunlight burns a rock and then read Bhagawan's Thought for today...

    People are suffering despair and defeat on account of the waywardness and unsteadiness of the senses. This is the result of inability to control and guide the intelligence and mind! The conflicting desires infecting the mind have to be quenched and controlled. Plunge the wayward mind, which is fleeing in all directions, in contemplation of the Name of the Lord; the effect will be like concentrating the rays of the sun through a piece of magnifying glass. The scattered rays develop the power of a flame to burn and consume. So too, when the waves of intellect and the feelings of mind get one-pointedness through the converging lens of the Atma, they manifest as the Universal Divine Splendour that can scorch evil and illumine joy. Everyone is able to gain success in his/her profession or occupation only through one-pointed attention. Even the pettiest of tasks needs the quality of concentration for its fulfilment. Thus, even the toughest problem yields to unswerving endeavour.

    Bhagawan's Thought for the day - 18th Dec 2010

    The cart of inner senses (Anthah-karana) must be yoked to the bullocks of intelligence (Buddhi) and mind (Manas) and made to follow their tracks. But if the bullocks of Buddhi and Manas have no knowledge of the pathways of truth, righteousness, peace, and love and if they have never once trodden that path, then the cart of the inner senses itself might come to grief! Even if they are prodded to proceed, they will only drag the cart to the familiar post of confusion, injustice, cruelty, indiscipline, and falsehood! What then of the journey? When is the arrival to be? Therefore, Buddhi and Manas have to be taught the art of pulling the cart and moving steadily along the road. This has to be done by repetition of the Lord’s Name (Japa) and meditation (Dhyana).

    Bhagawan's Thought for the Day....12th Dec

    Human beings have been endowed with the intelligence and discriminative faculty of heightened degree in order to enable them to visualise the Atma. This is the reason why human beings are acclaimed as the crown of creation, and this is why the scriptures proclaim that the chance of being born as man is a very rare piece of good fortune. Human beings have the qualifications, urge and the capacity needed to seek the cause of Creation. People should endeavour to promote peace, prosperity and safety. They should use the forces and things in nature for promoting happiness and pleasure. They are approved by the Vedas themselves.

    Bhagawan's Thought for the day - 6th Dec

    Date: Tuesday, December 07, 2010

    Actions that bind include all activity in relation to exterior objects. Such actions are usually resorted to with a desire for the result. This craving for the results leads one to the morass of “I” and “mine” and the demons of lust and greed. If one follows this path, there will be sudden flares, as when clarified butter (ghee) is poured in the sacrificial fire! Assigning priority to sense objects (Vishaya) is the same as assigning importance to poison (Visha)!

    What is Naarayana Seva?...Swami's Thought on seva...

    Our Samithi Schedule:
    Naraayana Seva is on 26th December 2010. Please deposit the food packets at our Puliyur Samithi before 9:00 AM that day.

    நாராயண் சேவை நடைபெறும் நாள்: 26-12-2010. உணவுப்பொட்டலங்களை காலை 9:00 மணிக்கு முன்பு  நமது புலியூர் சமிதியில் சேர்த்து விடவும்.
    Swami's Thought on Narayana seva...

    Some time ago, Swami used to serve food to all the poor people. This is called Narayana Seva.

    It seems one time when Swami had started serving food; He stopped at one spot, noticing a lady who was carrying a little, small child in her arms. Swami stopped there and called to one Seva Dal boy. "We are serving food to these people; how about that child?"

    That Seva Dal had no reply. "Swami, what should I do?"

    "Bring a glass of milk for this child."

    So the Seva Dal
    boy went all the way to bring a glass of milk.

    Swami went on moving around the lines, serving food. From a long distance, He stopped and asked, "Did you give milk to that child?"

    That boy said, "Yes, Swami."

    Swami said, "Nothing doing!"

    Swami went all the way back to that lady and touched the glass. "It is very, very hot. How do you expect the child to drink 
    the milk? No, bring another glass."

    He started cooling the milk -- pouring it this way and that, pouring it from one glass into the other. He made it cool and offered the milk to the child and only then left.

    "Seva or service is not a routine; it is not mechanical. No! It is not a schedule either. We have to do it wholeheartedly." - Baba

    Bhagawan's Thought for today- 4th Dec

    All things that are seen are transient, unreal. God alone is eternal, real. Attachment with objects ends in grief. God is your own Reality. That Reality, the God in you, has no relationship with the changing transitory objective world. He is Pure Consciousness only. Even if you posit some relationship for it, it can only be the type of relationship that exists between the dreamer and the objects seen and experienced in dreams.

    Bhagawan's Thought for today - 2nd Dec

     Date: Thursday, December 02, 2010

    You must exercise constant watchfulness over your feelings and reactions. You must keep out selfishness, envy, anger, greed and other such evil tendencies from entering your minds. These are nets which entrap you. These vices overwhelm and subdue your holiness, so that you cannot be influenced any longer. Then you will forget yourself and behave like an individual caught in frenzy. You will blabber as your tongue dictates, without regard to the effect - good or evil. You will engage your hands in work that the hands favour. Be aware and keep them in control! If you carefully discriminate, you can be recognised by the good company you keep, the good works you delight in and the good words you utter.

    Bhagawan's Thought for today - 30th Nov

    Date: Tuesday, November 30, 2010
    Every sense runs after external objects one after the other, one supporting the other, restlessly and miserably. One must bring under control the mind, the reasoning faculty and the senses which roam aimlessly behind objective pleasures. One must train them to take on the task of concentrating all attention on the glory and majesty of God to follow one systematic course of one-pointed discipline. Bring them all and lead them towards the Higher Path. Their unlicensed behaviour has to be curbed. They must be educated by means of Japa (chanting God’s name), Dhyana (meditation) or noble deeds, or some other dedicatory and elevating activity that purifies and ennobles.

    தரிசன மகிமை

    "எனது தரிசனம் முடிந்த பின் அமைதியான ஒரு இடத்தில எப்போதும் அமரவும். அப்போது உங்களிடத்தில் ஓர் ஆழ்ந்த அமைதி ஊடுருவும். அத்துடன் எனது  ஆசீர்வாதத்தையும்  நீங்கள் முழுமையாக பெறுவீர்கள்.  இங்கே உங்களிடையே நான் வரும்போது என்னிடமிருந்து  என் ஆற்றல் வெளியேறுகின்றது. 

    நீங்கள் உடனடியாக பேச முற்படுவீர்களாகில் இந்த  புனிதமான ஆற்றல்  கலைந்து, பயனற்று   என்னிடமே திரும்பி வந்து விடுகிறது.எனது பார்வை படும் இடம் எல்லாம் பேராற்றல் பெற்று புத்துணர்வுடன் திகழும் என்று உறுதி அளிக்கப்படுகிறது.ஒவ்வொரு நாளும் நீங்கள் மாறிக்கொண்டே இருக்கிறீர்கள். இந்த தரிசனத்தில் பெரும் பேற்றை ஒரு போதும் குறைத்து எடை போடாதீர்கள். உங்களிடையே நான் உலாவுவது அதி உன்னதமான தேவர்களுக்கு வழங்ககூடிய ஒரு வெகுமதி ஆகும். இந்த வெகுமதியை (அருளை) நீங்கள் தினமும்  பெற்றுக்கொண்டிருக்கிறீர்கள். அதற்க்கான நன்றியுடன் இருங்கள்.

    நீங்கள் பெரும் இந்த ஆசீர்வாதம் உரிய காலத்தில் முழுமையான பலனை நல்கும். அதே சமயத்தில் இறைவனிடமிருந்து நீங்கள் அதிகமாக பெறுவதைப் போலவே, உங்களிடமிருந்தும் அதிகமாக எதிர்பார்க்கப்படும் என்பதையும் நினைவில் கொள்ளுங்கள். "


    Bhagawan's Thought For the Day - 27 Nov

    Of the instruments used by everyone, the body with its hands ready executes the thought which is expressed in words. The deed, the work, the labour that the hand of man is engaged in, is the source of all the happiness or misery for everyone. Man asserts that he is happy, or that he is anxious and afraid or that he is in trouble. He attributes the cause of these conditions to some person other than himself. This belief rests on a wrong basis. Happiness and misery are due to one’s own actions. Whether one accepts this truth or rejects it, one has to go through all the consequences of one’s actions. This is the law of nature.

    "எல்லோராலும் தெய்வ தன்மையை புரிந்து கொண்டுவிட முடியாது. இந்த உலகம் முழுவதும் என்னை தூற்றினாலும் நான் சோர்ந்து போக மாட்டேன். போற்றினாலும் பூரித்து போக மாட்டேன்.  அதே போல நீங்களும் ஆன்மாவில், சத்தியத்தில் ஊன்றி நிலைத்து விட்டீர்கள் என்றால் எவ்விதமான் கவலைகளோ துயரங்களோ உங்களை பிடிக்காது"

    Baghawan's Thought For the Day -26 Nov

    Date: Friday, November 26, 2010
    The teacher must come down to the level of the student. This process is called ‘descent.’ It does not mean stepping down from the top to the ground. It only means accepting the level of the person who is to be benefited. The baby on the floor cannot jump in to the arms of the mother, when she calls upon it to come up. “I am a great person. I will not stoop”- if the mother feels like that, she cannot possess the child. Stooping does not make a person small. The teacher too, is not demeaning himself when he comes down to the level of the pupil in order to teach him. It is only a laudable sign of love.

    Bhagawan's Thought for the day -22nd Nov 2010

    Education should be used for promoting the welfare of the nation. Knowledge gained through education should be used selflessly for promoting the welfare of humanity. What we need today are Uttama-purushulu (noble and high-minded men and women). The nation will prosper only when there are such persons with noble minds and hearts. Such persons will emerge in society only when there is purity of mind and morality in society. Only a society with a moral foundation can foster such noble persons. Spirituality is the only means for redemption.

    Bhagawan's Thought for the day

    From time immemorial, women of Bharat, by their adherence to ideals have bestowed joy on this land and hence occupy an exalted position, which is higher than that of men. Women of such exalted character have set great ideals of womanhood in Bharat. Only if the women come up in society, the whole world will turn sacred. There is nothing in this world that women cannot achieve. Recognising the nature of such women, we must encourage them and give them equal opportunities in society. However, in today's polluted society, there is no encouragement for women to cultivate high ideals. In modern times, the ways of life have become so perverted that only evil thoughts, evil feelings and evil behaviour rule the roost.
