Towards You

Towards youTowards You

by Prabhuji

 

Reality is unpredictable… it changes every moment…

The false, the artificial l, like death, is static and unchanging…

A religion of reality must take this into account…

Sanātana-dharma is for and from reality… Brahmā, Śiva, Viṣṇu, Gaṇeśa, Durgā, Kali, an endless number of different deities, different windows through which one can reach the One behind the many…

Bhakti, karma, rāja, jñāna, nāda, kuṇḍalinī… opening infinite doors within…

Countless opportunities…

Because we are different…

Even from ourselves…

There are moments that you are a rāja-yogī…… and other times whenjñāna touches you…

There are times when you feel like a real bhakta

Walking in the rain, you feel very meditative… a stroll along the seashore makes you disappear… contemplating a sunset or the smile of a child floods you with devotion…

The Truth must fit the time, place and circumstances… it must flow with reality…

In public, you are a Vaiṣṇava, with your intimate friends, a Śaiva, and alone, there is nothing like being in the lap of your mother…

Reality, as well as life, existence, and human beings, are all so unpredictable… A living religion must be open to the unexpected, to the mystery…

Aano bhadraḥ kritavo yāntu vishwatah, the Ṛg-veda tells us, which means: “Allow any noble idea to come to us from any direction”… This phrase conveys the real attitude of a man of religion…

To open yourself and to allow all that inspires you to come towards you… Where it comes from does not matter. What matters is where it leads you…

What matters is that it leads you towards you…
