Friends!
We can easily escape and wade through difficult situations simply by changing our outlook. If we happen to find ourselves in knotty positions, it is most inappropriate to despair and inadvisable to curse our fate or blame any other fellow being. We can change our outlook and contemplate that the cause of such contingencies resides within us only.Thus, We can only overcome these oppression if we desire. For this we need to be always engrossed in pure thoughts and strive to improve our inner state. This would automatically lead to the betterment of our external conditions for which we remain worried and anxious.
We cannot even imagine of leading a progressive and hassle free life if we remain entangled by various parasites which stagnate our growth. These evils might be anger, worry, jealousy and greed. We must first discard them in order to attain mental peace, focus and tranquility.
We may continuously keep on giving refuge to pristine intentions and virtuous thoughts and witness our problems vanish.

Knowledge is a natural instinct of our soul. It makes us aware and alert, it helps us to enjoy the happiness in life and it makes us successful. A person devoid of knowledge will always remain shackled within the boundaries of life and death. Knowledge casts out all of the darkness of ignorance and leads us towards the path of salvation. Hence, knowledge is the most unique, pure and valuable virtue of life. Only A person with appropriate apprehension has the capability to differentiate between what is true and what is false, to weigh the feasibility and importance of the situations that life has to offer. Hence, such a person surrenders himself to God in all circumstances. He understands that it is useless to wander here and there in search of happiness and peace when it lies only within.
Now, how can one acquire knowledge and wisdom? Well, one can imbibe it through the continuous and regular self analysis and by constantly remaining in the company of learned but wise people. We must also continuously read scripture & contemplate to enhance our knowledge. This shall bring us enlightenment within. A society comprised of scholars always prospers and easily achieves its objectives.

Friends! We must live life as if it is an enactment or a play and we are nothing but mere performers on a stage.  This is exactly thinking like Saints who spend their lives as puppets at the hands of the Ultimate.
Gatey was a very famous actor of Germany. With the passing years he had gained a lot of experience and got so engrossed in his work that he started considering himself as only a person discharging his duties in the capacity of a performer. When he breathed his last, he had a very innocent and sweet smile on his face. Before leaving his body, he clapped loudly and gestured, “This is the end of a beautiful play, my friends! The curtain draws now.”

Friends! Have we ever tried to understand how beautiful Truth is? Even Just pronouncing the word gives us immense pleasure, its contemplation soothes our mind and if we imbibe and inculcate it in our nature then the resulting happiness and peace must be felt to be believed.
A Fib or a lie, on the other hand, is proportionally ugly and disastrous. It makes us into a non human and subjects us to the curse of God. The Ultimate is true and the intentions of the Almighty are pure and serene. God has given us this incarnation so that we can roam in his truthful paradise with pleasure and without fear. But alas! We are ignoring the purpose of our life. We tend to forget that this world is nothing but a reflection of our own thoughts.
Truth inspires us to have insight into our identity, it teaches us to reform our outlook, motivates us to improve ourselves so that our environment and surroundings become calm and congenial. If we become honest, the our world becomes honest. Therefore, it is very important to walk on the ground of truth  if one is to attain the welfare of  humanity.

“If you chant the Gayatri Mantra 24 times along with me, it will not only make your pronunciation pure but also my voices will be harmonized with yours. I have several voices. You have only one: the Vaikharee (voice of the tongue). I have the Madhyama (voice of the countenance),  the Para (voice of the heart) and the Pashyanti (voice of the mind). I chant Gayatri Mantra 24 times with these four voices in unison; you chant along too! This way the 24 Mantras will be as powerful as to 24,000 Mantras, because my voices are harmonized with them.
