Change your thought and your stars will change with you

1st Jan, 2016

A village maiden pounding rice in the traditional way would hardly be of notice to most of us. To the enlightened mind of Dattatreya, however, she was a lesson to be remembered. The  great sage  was walking in his village one day, when he saw a beautiful maiden pounding rice. She was wearing a lot of bangles that clinked together noisily as she went about her work. As her master was inside sleeping and she did not wish to disturb him with the noise, she started to remove one bangle at a time in order to reduce the sound they made. She removed them, one by one, until there was only one bangle left. This one bangle made no noise.

What did Dattatreya learn? Our mind is like the bangles of the beautiful maiden. Our thoughts rattle and clink noisily from day to day. While we are working, our mind is filled with so many things, like so many bangles of the woman. We should remove those myriad thoughts, like she removed her bangles, until we are only left with one focus alone: the work in which we are occupied. How many of us have learnt to keep our mind focused? With a firm resolve, just focus on doing whatever you are doing. We do not do this.

Our mind has many branches and travels at lightning speed in many directions. With this external speed and internal noise, you are not able to digest an experience. When you are not able to digest an experience you will not be able to tap into the message and poetry and benediction of the experience. Therefore you will find that, when the grim reaper approaches, you have not experienced life nor really lived it. Life is passing and you feel something is missing.

Why be afraid of what is happening in life? We hold back out of fear. Let the fear go and keep moving forward.

 



A moment for celebration

Prasanna Jyothi was set up under the guidance of Poojya Swamiji to create a safe and nurturing environment for girl children. Over the years, we have worked to provide holistic support for vulnerable girls in Bangalore so that they may reach their full potential.

It is our joy to share that Ms. Kusuma, cared and nurtured at Prasanna Jyothi grew up to get a successful career as an Engineer and settle in the USA. We attended her November 5th, 2015. Our congratulations to the newly-wed couple!
