……Contd. from GYAN KI GEHRAI (The Depth of Wisdom)
Devotee: Maiya, all Saints preach it repeatedly that, we should always remember that “we belong to God and God belongs to us” but unfortunately, we don’t remember it all the time. How to keep this in mind, Always?
Maiya: Because you don’t have love & affection for God and you don’t feel the belongin with Him, that’s why you tend to forget. Like, if you keep money or any other dear thing of yours somewhere, you don’t forget, because you think that to be yours, it belongs to you. Similarly, if you feel same for that Supreme Being, you will always remember Him.
Devotee: Maiya, How to experience the divine nectar of God?
Maiya : For instance , when you eat some sweet only then you get to know its taste, similarly, only when you will remember Him with full devotion, then you will naturally taste the divine nectar.
Devotee: Maiya, shall we step on this path with the help of external sources or without?
Maiya: Using or not using resources is not that important, but to reach your goal. In earlier times, TV , VDOs, Computer etc. were not there and at that time the atmosphere was very peaceful but now since we have to move with the speed of Jet, so we use mobile, TV etc. for ‘satsang’ or for reading scriptures. Anyways you choose, but keep moving on this path.
Devotee: Maa, why doesn’t our Sadhna enhance?
Maiya: You are doing ‘sadhna’ but there is no purity. You should meditate with same ‘aasna’, rosary (Jap mala), same place and time every day. Punctuality is very important in ‘sadhna’. Do your sadhna with honesty and it will definitely pay back. You must same rules for your life. If foundation is weak, the building will fall down very soon. Similarly, if you are not honest and regular with your sadhna, you will get some success initially, but soon will reach back to the previous position. Just like , if you keep a earthern pitcher with a hole in it under the flowing water ,it will never fill up, similarly, if there are holes in our mind or heart, in the disguise of attachments, or jealously, then all the efforts for spiritualism go waste.

Arjuna says, I don’t want to fight, as there are big warriors in front of me and in their comparison, I am not so.
Then Lord Krishna said,
taktwa hriday duryabalyam uttishth param tapa.
Meaning that,keep aside the weakness of your heart and do your karma. Srimad Bhagwad Gita never teaches that, you abandon your duties and work and be dependent on your destiny. Whatever lord will give, I will accept, NO…..
In Yoga Vashishtha MahaRamayana (famous Hindu Scripture), it is written, that
“O’ Lord Rama ! The one who always remain dependent on the destiny and resists one self from doing karma, is a coward, & the one who does purusharth (efforts) is blessed with enlightenment. Here efforts win, not the destiny. Even destiny is made out of efforts. A farmer was ploughing a field, suddenly a bird collided with the plough , he caught & sold the bird. He thought the amount which i gained by farming for so many days, can be gained just by selling a bird. Hence from today onwards,no farming just selling the birds. No, everyday he would go to the field and waited for a bird to collide, and in this manner waited for long , but thereafter ,neither a bird collided nor he could sell & earn money. Many people become happy by incidental profits, “Today is sorrow, Tomorrow will be happiness”. Dont wait for incidental profits, do efforts. Doing work is your duty and rewarding for that is the duty of God.
Uddeme na sidhhyanti karyani na manorathayi,
nahi suptasya sinhasya pravishyanti mukhe mriga.
meaning that , if a lion opens his mouth and keep sitting with the expectation that a deer will enter his mouth automatically ,then lion is mistaken. Similarly, If you want to eat chapatti and the flour , roller , chapati board as well as vegetables are near you, efforts have to be put in by you, so that your stomach gets filled. Therefore, one should always perform duties . Bhagvad Gita says that one who coordinates his work, knowledge and devotion, remains detached to materialistic world even though living in it. Just as Lotus grows into the water but remains unaffected by water. Like tongue remains inside your mouth, tastes lot of Ghee, Oil and butter but never becomes lube, similarly, while living in this materialistic world one should always take shelter of spiritual discourses and wisdom of Bhagwad Gita so that one can attain enlightment.
