Thought for the day as written at Prasanthi Nilayam today

May 1st, 2010
 

For beings immersed in the world, there are two obstacles that must be overcome: the craving for animal desires and the craving of the tongue. Every one of you must conquer these. So long as they persist, they cause sorrow. These are the causes of all sins, and sin is the manure on which Maya (delusion) thrives. Those aspiring for liberation should subdue the senses. To conquer these desires, whatever activity you do - eating, walking, studying, serving or moving, you should perform them in the belief that they lead you to the presence of God. Every action should be done in a spirit of dedication to the Lord.

Vidya (true knowledge) instructs you to reform yourself first. After transforming yourself, try to reform others. That is the advice offered by Vidya. The delusive attachment to the objective world can be uprooted by means of selfless service rendered as worship to the Lord. Genuine devotion is characterized by love for all, at all times, everywhere.

A farmer clears and levels the land, removes the stones and thorns, ploughs and prepares the field, manures and nourishes the soil, waters and applies fertilizers on it. Then he sows the seeds and transplants the saplings. This is followed by the process of weeding and spraying of pesticides. Finally, after a long wait, he reaps the harvest. Once the crop is harvested, he then winnows it, threshes it and finally stacks the produce. All these various processes are for the sake of feeding the stomach. So too, one must feel that hunger, thirst, joy and sorrow, grief and loss, suffering and anger, food and appetite are but impulses that impel us towards attaining the Presence of the Lord. If you have this attitude, no sin will ever tarnish your actions. Over time, these impulses too will vanish, without a trace.

Your nature is revealed by your acts, gestures, looks, speech, food habits, dress and the manner in which you conduct yourself. Therefore, you must pay attention to ensure that your speech, movements, thoughts and behavior are all correct and filled with love and nobility, devoid of wildness and waywardness. You have to develop the humility to believe that you have much good to learn from others. Your enthusiasm, aspiration, resolution, capacity to work, knowledge and wisdom have to be directed towards the welfare of all and not utilized solely for your selfish ends. You should be broad-minded and cultivate all-embracing love.

You must understand the value of mother's love and her concern for you. You must give your mother the topmost priority. Sometimes, modern youth do not care for their mothers. They think they are highly educated and that their mothers do not know anything. It is a great mistake to think so. Never look down upon your mother. Mothers also should not compel their children to accede to each and every wish of theirs. Through love and sincerity, she should put her children on the proper path. Every mother should aspire that her children should be good; they need not be great.

-SAI BABA
