    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.
