What happens when we offer our heart to the Lord?

Lord Krishna incarnated to destroy evil in a handful of individuals. But now, the evil qualities are not identifiable in a small group of people. They are widespread everywhere. The scorpion has poison only in its tail; the cobra only in its fangs; but people have poison all over them! They have it in their eyes, their tongues, their mind, their intelligence, their gait, their brain – just about everywhere. You may ask, “Oh! When will this poison be counteracted and destroyed?” When the Lord enters your heart, that is the very objective He will accomplish. Offer unto the Lord, the ‘flower of your heart’ (Hrudaya Pushpam), after cleansing it thoroughly of the dust and pests (desire, anger, envy, doubt, etc.) that infest it. Without effort, can there be victory in any field? Can you become a high ranking official without the appropriate qualifications of scholarship, talent, experience and wisdom? So persevere and succeed!

- Divine Discourse, 14 Jan 1964.

Why should we not postpone our spiritual practices even for one day? Bhagawan lovingly and assertively implores us today.


These days, people are content to visualise and experience evanescent worldly joys. People have no rest. Spending the nights in sleep and days in eating and drinking, they grow and grow, until, in old age, death pursues them. Then, they can’t decide where to go or what to do; all senses have weakened. No one and nothing can rescue them, so they end as obedient meat in the jaws of death! How sad it is that this human life, precious as an invaluable diamond that can’t be priced at all, has been cheapened to the standard of a worn-out worthless coin! There is no use repenting later without meditating on God or practising some spiritual discipline to realise Him now. It is the right of the aspirant (sadhaka) to have the vision of God and not the sight of death (Yama-darshan)!

- Prema Vahini, Ch 41.

There are two things you have to forget - the help you have rendered to others and the harm others have done to you.

Life is a song - sing it. Life is a game - play it. Life is a challenge - meet it. Life is a dream - realize it. Life is a sacrifice - offer it. Life is love - enjoy it.

Love is Divine. Have love for all. Impart your love even to those who lack love. Love is like a mariner's compass. Wherever you may keep it, it points the way to God. In every action in daily life, manifest your love. Divinity will emerge from that love. This is the easiest path to God realization. But why are not people talking to it? This is because they are obsessed with misconceptions relating to the means of experiencing God. They regard God as some remote entity attainable only by arduous spiritual practices. God is everywhere. There is no need to search for God. All that you see is a manifestation of the Divine. All the human beings you see are forms of the Divine. Correct your defective vision and you will experience God in all things.

(Sanathana Sarathi, Aug 1996, pg 212)

Persist in your Sadhana (spiritual discipline) till you reach the goal. Congenial company is most necessary for you to persist in your Sadhana. You will be shaped by the company you keep.

Man is led into the wrong belief that the accumulation of material possessions will endow him with joy and calm. But Divine Love (Prema) alone can give that everlasting joy. Prema alone will remove anger and envy and hatred.

Dharma protects those who practice dharma . Those who live and uphold righteousness will be protected by that very righteousness itself.

God is the embodiment of Love. Love is His nature. There is nothing more precious in this world than Divine love. God is beyond all attributes. Hence His love also is beyond attributes. No one can describe the nature of Divine love. It is beyond the reach of poets. The one who is immersed in the waters of Divine Love will be unable to speak to anyone.

The name of the Lord must be recited with awe and wonder, humility and reverence. Feeling is the force that makes the Naama reach the Naami (the bearer of the name). No act done without love can be commended.

Seek the company of the good, the seekers, the aspirants, the detached. Then, you will see the light. Listen to holy discourses; read sacred books. Attach yourself to the Highest, call it by any name, conceive it in any form. But, remember, without Dharma you cannot attain it.

In one of the Interviews to the Students in Prasanthi Nilayam, Swami was asked the following questions, the Answers were the Greatest Truths made the Most simple :

Swami what is Creation ?

"Never comprehend Creation, It is something Divine and cannot be comprehended, Can you clap with one hand, you cannot, that is creation, There is only One hand in creation and that is God's.

Swami,Is There reincarnation and rebirth for everyone?

Bhagavan: You are reborn now, aren't you?, You will be again and again and again. The body is nothing but pure illusion and this illusion will keep on repeating itself on and on until you find the Real Self. Then there is nothing like Rebirth and you will be one with the Lord.

Swami, What actually is Birth and Death ?

Only the Body has birth and Death, but the Body is illusion created by you, So in actual reality there is no Birth and Death at all.

Let mountains fall; let the sea overwhelm the land; but, do not give up your saadhana. And, remember, saadhana is a waste, unless you grow at the. same time in virtue and uprightness. If you give up all and surrender to the Lord, He will guard you and guide you.

Truth does not simply mean abstaining from lying. You have to take truth as your very essence, as the foundation of your life. You should be prepared to renounce everything for the sake of truth. The world conducts itself in the fear of this truth and is always subservient to truth.

There is a language of the heart that all can understand, and would like to hear. When heart speaks to heart, it is Love that is transmitted, without any reservation.

What is the importance of the company we keep, in relation to our journey to the Divine? The Divine Master explains to us through absolutely wonderful examples today.

Iron turns into rust if it seeks the company of soil. It glows, softens and takes on useful shapes, if it enjoys the company of fire. Dust can fly if it chooses the wind as its friend; however if it prefers water, it has to end as slime in a pit. It has neither wing nor foot, yet it can either fly or walk, rise or fall, according to the friend it selects. Knowing this truth, the great saint, Kabir once said: "Here are my prostrations to the good, here are my prostrations to the bad." When asked why he offered salutations to the bad, he replied, "My prostrations to the bad, so that they may leave me alone. I do the same before good, so that they might remain near me always." You are shaped by the company you keep.

- Divine Discourse, Nov 14, 1976.

"You must know that there is no end to the incarnations that God takes. He has come down on countless occasions. Sometimes He comes with a part of His glory, sometimes for a particular task, sometimes to transform an entire era of time, an entire continent of space, sometimes with a fuller equipment of splendour. The drama enacted by the Lord and the devotees drawn towards Him is the subject matter of Bhagavatha (Stories on the Glory of God). Listening to these stories promotes the realization of God. Many sages have testified to its efficacy and extolled the Glory of God, and they helped to preserve it for posterity."
