INVARIABLY 'THE UNSEEN PRAYER' OF MY LIFE!

A young man was


  • Honest, 
  • Principled, 
  • Straight forward, 
  • Hardworking 
  • Helpful to others and 
  • Charitable
But was

Never a believer of God..

“Doing my job well and be useful to others in times of need itself is enough in my life. Where's it specially required to

  • Go round the Worshiping Places, 
  • Read Sacred Books, 
  • Offer Prayers, 
  • Worship the Deity of belief 
All along carrying a feeling within that

'I move because Some One moves me!'

It's all in the mind and if I want to be free here sure, I can!”

Was his firm assertion all the time..

An elderly well-wisher of deeper Ethics wanted to correct him gently and mold his thinking there so that he would be much more useful to himself as well as to others. Accordingly, he met him one evening and after a few enquiries said,

“Dear! Hats off to your exemplary personality and good habits. You are an exception around and people like you definitely build the right Nation. But I want to educate a little more here, if you permit!”

The young man smiled and said,

“Sir! I know what you are going to say. Please go ahead and I don't mind listening to you!”

“Dear! You
  • Pay all taxes and duties, 
  • Take the necessary permissions, 
  • Apply for clearances and NOCs and 
  • Follow all the guide lines set by the State to the core.. 
As the State provides many things for your
  • Living, 
  • Working and 
  • Expressing yourself 
In the form of supply of essentials like
  • Power, 
  • Water, 
  • Developed land, 
  • Infrastructure, 
  • Facilities for carrying out trade etc.. 
Am I right?”

“Yes, Sir.. You said it 100%!"

"Dear! In a similar way, Mother Nature too gives us

Many Life Supporting Systems around and within us

For our happy living..
  • The Sun rises daily in the east to heat us to the required, 
  • The Winds blow all round bringing copious rains in time quenching our thirst 
  • The Rivers flow all along down the slopes distributing those waters where required 
  • The Hills constantly control the movement of winds bringing the required cool surroundings and
  • The Oceans forever help Nature store the precious essentials of life..
Beyond this,

Various complicated and delicately balanced Systems

Continuously work in our bodies in perfect synchronization making us feel all the time

  • Healthy, 
  • Happy and 
  • Energetic! 
To say very much rightly here, we at any time have no absolute control over all these limitless Entities around and within us except living in tune to our Mother Nature and maintaining the same through our good habits. Then why are you not thanking

The Unseen Power behind all this Perfection

Too for making your living complete thru' such

Sacred Support?" 

“-------"

“Dear, let me ever remember here that this day I am just 'Myself' because the Lord had Willed that way and was all Merciful to me.. Else, I can never

  • Talk, 
  • Do all this so well, 
  • Express myself in the best way and 
  • Remain happy
In my life.. Now tell me, should you not acknowledge such 

A Great Gift in Front of you

Through

A Thankful Attitude

Which other wise is called

The Daily Prayer

And remain humble in your life?"

In line with the advice given by the well-wisher, 

The Pavamana Mantra of Brahadaranyaka Upanishad 

Was heard being chanted melodiously on the distant loud speakers with the meaning explained in parallel..

'asato ma sad gamaya,
tamaso ma jyotir gamaya,
mrtyor mamrtam gamaya,
om shanti shanti shanti.'


'Lead me from the unreal to the real
Lead me from the darkness to the light
Lead me from death to the immortality
Let there be peace, peace, peace.'

  5. Totally agree with you Sir.We need to acknowledge each and everything to Him through a Daily prayers.
    Excellent thought. Hats off to you Sir.

    Love to quote this verse from bhaghavad Gita.
    "patram puspam phalam toyam
    yo me bhaktya prayacchati
    tad aham bhakty-upahrtam
    asnami prayatatmanah"

    If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, fruit a water, I will accept it.

    1. Thanks Deepa for the appreciation.. The attitude described in the Post is 100% a positive attitude alone in one's life and that no way limits the growth and expression of the individual in any direction. With such a firm faith one can sure do more than one is capable of thus bringing betterment to oneself as well as to the people around. Wishes!
