Spiritual Significance of the Nine nights of Navratri! Navaratri is dedicated to Goddess Durga. Goddess Durga is believed to be the combination of Trinity of gloddesses – Laxmi, Parvati, Saraswati. Three days are assigned to each goddess during the nine divine days of Navaratri. Remove Negative Tendencies: During the first three days of Navaratri, Goddess Durga is worshipped in her Terrifying, Destructive and Powerful form. During these three days, the devotees pray to the goddess to destroy their Imperfections. They pray to be made pure so as to receive the divine and spiritual energy of the goddess. Positive Attitude Brings Success: Goddess Laxmi is the symbol of Prosperity, the Shakti who brings prosperity. During the next three days, Goddess Durga is worshipped in her prosperity-bestowing form. During the first three days, we remove our Negative attitude; hence, in the next three days, positive attitude replaces the negative attitude. With a positive and optimistic attitude, devotees pray for removing obstacles and bringing success in their path. Importance of Knowledge: Knowledge is very important for a human to live life. Saraswati is not just the Goddess of Knwledge, she is also Shakti, who bestows Wisdom. On the fifth, seventh and eighth day, devotees worship goddess Saraswati. Without removing negative tendencies and without having wealth of love, inner peace and calmness, one cannot attain divine knowledge. We first have to purify ourselves to get the path of wisdom. Goddess Saraswati bestows the shakti (energy) to the devotees so that they can attain knowledge And Move forward towards Mental Peace and Wisdom!!

Happy Father’s Day

Any man can become a father, it requires Courage to be a Dad! If Mothers are the Cradle of happiness for their child, Father’s are the Stands on which the cradle sits. They let our ambitions and passions live while keeping their own in the backburners. A dad or the first man a Girl makes friend and falls in love with. He is the one who a boy looks upto. For a girl, her dad is the ultimate benchmark to judge a guy. Truly said, ” Any fool can have a child. That doesn’t make him a father. It’s the Courage to raise a child that makes him a Father “!!

Our Thoughts are the Foundation, the Inspiration and the Motivation Behind our Deeds.

We Create our Entire World by the Way we Think.

Our Circumstances and Conditions are Not Dictated by the Outside world, but by the world Inside Us and What we Make of it.

If Our Thoughts are PURE, these Will Automatically Lead to NOBLE Actions.
If or Thoughts are Filled with Jealousy, Hatred and Greed, So Will Be our Actions. Leaving us with an Agitated Mind.

Our Thoughts Have More Far Reaching Consequences than our Actual Deeds.
It’s Useless to Do a Charitable Act For a Motive Rather than Selflessness.

We Alone Have the Choice to Instill ourselves With Loving and Positive Thoughts, so that the Same Get Reflected in our Actions!

” What we Think we Become “!!

Where there is a ‘Will’, there is a Way.

Sometimes, in our daily lives, we plan to do something new to remove ourselves from the boredom of the daily routine,
even if it is cooking a new dish.

But then, drop the idea, because of the uncertainty of it turning out good in appearance or the fear of not being tasty.
These negative thoughts bar us from following our ‘will’ to do it.
If our ‘will’ to succeed is accompanied by positiveness and good thoughts, it surely comes out right and is tasty too.

Sometimes, even when a patient is seviourly I’ll, it is the ‘will to survive’ that makes him/her come out of danger and live again a happy life.

Thus, it has been rightly said,

” It’s the Will that’s awakened in the darkness, which brings us to a permanent light “!!

An ODE to a MOTHER!
_______________________

‘Mother’, the Word itself Symbolizes Love, Respect, Care, Sacrifice, Selflessness.

A Mother Always Remembers her Babies – the Folds of Soft Flesh, the Softly Furred Scalp against her nose.
Each Child Has Its Own Entreaties to Body and Souls.

With All her Love, Care and Attention, a Mother Always Fuels you Up, Everytime, to Make our Lives Better and Worth Living.

Behind All your Stories is Your Mother’s Story, Because, Hers Is Where Yours Begin.

We, Daughters, Have So Many Dreams of our Own, and Remember Things From our Childhood, From When We were a Girl to Becoming a Young Woman, a Mother.

So, Why Do We Forget What our Moms Went Through!

She Didn’t Have the Opportunity to Pursue her Dreams, and All by Herself, Faced Everything the Era Dealt With her, Hardships and Sadness.

She Couldn’t Do Anything about het Bad Lot in Life Other than Suffer Through It, Get Beyond It and Live her Life to the Very Best of Her Ability, Giving her Body and Heart to it Completely.

Why We Never Give a thought to our Mom’s Dreams?!

Whenever There is Something Not Going Well in our Lives, we Habitually Think of our Mothers, Because Thinking of her Makes us Come Back on the Right Track and Feel Re-energized.

The Responsibilities of a Mother CANNOT BE Truthfully and Successfully Delegated, Whether They May Be Day-Centres, Schools, Nurseries, Baby-sitters, Pre-school Training Outside the Home For Young Children.
Not only Does this Put Added Pressure on the Budget, but Places Young Children In an Environment Away from Mother’s Influence.

Too Often, the Pressure for Popularity, on Children and Teens, Places an Economic Burden On the Income of the Father.
So, the Mother Feels she Must Go to Work to Satisfy her Children’s Needs.
That Decision Can Be the Most Short-sighted.

It is a Mother’s Influence During the Crucial Formative Years that Forms a Child’s Basic Character.
Home is the Place Where a Child Learns Faith, Feels Live, and Thereby Learns To
Choose Righteousness.

When We Tend to Think Much About Ourselves For Our Own Selfish Motives,
the Best Cure Is To Help Somebody Who is Worse Than You!

Mothers Are God-Gifted and Cannot Be Replaced.

The Best Gift that Fathers Can Give To Their Children Is To RESPECT their MOTHERS!!

Everyday Should Be a Mother’s Day!

Proud to Be a Mother!!

What is present, or what is there as creation or what we interpret, is considered small.
It’s what we visualize. It’s in our nature.

Its not Always what we have or what we are that directs our lives.
May we call it desire, ambition, longing, or seeking, what we do not have is what dominates, directs, and rules our lives in every possible way.
For e.g, if our financial condition is not good we try to earn more money, if we are not keeping good health we try to keep it so, if we are not happy, we try to find ways by which we can be happy, we try to become what we are not, and so on!
Thus, it’s the Absence of something that motivates us further in life.

We try to fill between the gaps, of what we were or had and what we want to be or want to have, by change.
Life is all about absence motivating the present.
“Absence makes our hearts go fonder”!
Enjoy the absence!!

A beautiful poem by Sadguruji,

ABSENCE

If you are enamored with my presence
O you should taste my absence

If my presence has made some sense
In my absence you would know the true essence

In my presence if you did find some romance
My absence would bring you to utter obeisance

In my presence if you have been swept by my grace
My absence will take you beyond grace and disgrace

If my presence has been an intoxicating wine
My absence will drown you in Divine!!

Good evening Friends! Jai Shree Krishna!

23rd April is World’s Earth Day.
For the year 2019, theEarth Day theme is ‘Protect our Species’.

Due to Climatic Changes, Extreme weather conditions and Global Warming,
the Biodiversity on the planet had been affected to a great extent.
Many plant and animal species have gone extinct, and many more are on the way.

The climatic changes have caused Habitat destruction, Overexploitation and Disease.
Due to Decreased Cold regions and Scarcity of Water, there have been Increased Conflicts between Wildlife and Humans leading to deaths and extinction. These may increase in the years to come.

Steps have to be taken to curb the high death rate of the scarce species and excessive use of the scarce resources in order to maintain life on earth and protect the environment.

Let’s start this from our homes first ’cause
Our children are the actual Inheritants of the Planet!

” A Stitch in time saves Nine, and also Small Successes lead to Bigger Ones”!!
