The Mother must take the Lead


The centre of every home must be the shrine room; the fragrance of flower and incense emanating from there must pervade the home and purity it.  The mother must set the example in holding out the shrine, as the heart of the household.  She must enforce discipline over the children in personal cleanliness, in humility and hospitality, in good manners and acts of service.  She must persuade the children, by example and precept to revere elders and to spend some time both in the morning and evening for prayer, and for silent meditation.  The shrine room has to be kept clean and consecrated; special festival days marked out in each religion should be observed so that the significance will impress itself on the young minds.

Your Touch


When you touch me I tingle with love,
Your gentleness is from Heaven above.
I feel your love as you caress me in 
your arms and, know that you love me
and all my charms.
My heart sings with songs of love as you
stroke my hair. 
I close my eyes thinking of you and relax
in your arms.
My world calms and cascades around
me with peacefulness and love as your
gentle touch transforms me with love.

Knowing God


Through practice, we learn to feel the presence of God working in and through us at all times, no matter what we are doing.
- May Rowland


The greatest joy in my life is knowing the presence of God.  I cannot help but feel complete when I know my oneness with Spirit.

Spiritual joy is more than just a passing emotion : It is a part of me that enhances my total well-being.  Being fully in the presence of God fills me with a joy of spirit that uplifts me and lingers with me to bless what I am doing.

Joy is a precious gift from God, a gift I naturally want to share with others.  The friendly smile on my face holds within it a spark of joy that can transform another person's face into an image of warmth and friendliness.


Yes, I am filled with joy because I am filled with the spirit of God.

The Purport of the Santhimantra


"Asatho maa sathgamaya; thamaso maa jyotirgamaya; mrityor maa amritam gamaya", this is the Santhimantra.  The meaning of this mantra is given variously by various people, some elaborately, some succinctly.  "Oh Lord, when I am deriving happiness through the objects of this world, make me forget the unreal objects and show me the way to permanent happiness", this is the first prayer.  "Oh Lord, when the objects of the world attract me, remove darkness which hides the all-pervading Atma, which every such object really is."  This is the second prayer.  "Oh Lord, bless me through Your grace with immortality or paramananda, resulting from the awareness of the effulgence of the Atma, immanent in every object."  This is the third prayer.  This is the real meaning of the mantra.

Practise the Gita


If the cow is the representative of Dharma, then, the four Vedas are the teats in its udder, where the life-giving milk is stored; the Gopala (Krishna) milked the cow and gave it to the world, as the Gita.  It has to be taken in, so that it might act and strengthen the bloodstream.  So, too, there is no use in listening for hours to discourses on the Gita; take the lesson in.  Put it into practice; apply it in daily life.  Realize the divinity in you.  That is the lesson.

Soft Answer


Nonresistance is the path to freedom.
- Marion R Brown


My first reaction to what someone has said or done may not be appropriate or even true to how I feel just a few moments later - when I have had time to think things over.  So I know not to let my first reaction overpower me.

Through nonresistance and a soft answer, I decide what I say and how I feel.  What a glorious feeling I experience in being true to myself!

My nonresistant attitude acts as a filter that keeps the anger and judgment of others from adversely affecting me.  And because I am nonresistant, I value the rights of others to voice their own thoughts and beliefs.

My soft answer is a statement to myself and others that I am living with the peace of God within me.  I contribute to the harmony in my relationships when I speak to others from that inner peace.


I speak words of kindness that resonate from my peace-filled soul.

Peace


PEACE...
comes through the understanding
that we cannot change others or the world,
unless we first change ourselves.

O LORD, TAKE MY LOVE

O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
