AlOchanaamR^itaM

AlochanaamR^itaM Man's Quest and Hinduism Brahmajnana, Yoga and Dharma are the three essentialities of Hinduism; wherever it travels, these three must spread. Shankara's philosophy may compel the homage of the intellectual, Sankhya attract the admiration of the analytical mind, Buddha capture the rationalist in search of a less material synthesis than the modern scientist's continual Annam Brahma [Matter is Supreme], but these are only grandiose intellectualities. The world at large does not live by the pure intellect...

A goal of life, a practice of perfection and a rational, yet binding law of conduct, - these are man's continual quest, and in none of these demands is modern Science able to satisfy humanity. In reply to all such wants Science can only cry, Society and again Society and always Society. But the nature of man knows that Society is not the whole of life. Yajnavalkya's universal dictum stands: a man loves and serves Society for the sake of the Self and not for the sake of Society.

What Science could not provide, India offers
: Brahman for the eternal goal, Yoga for the means of perfection, dharma (swabhava-niyatam karma) for the rational yet binding law of conduct. Therefore, because it has something by which humanity can be satisfied and on which it can found itself, the victory of the Indian mind is assured.

- Sri Aurobindo (Excerpts from The Psychology of Yoga, from his notebook of 1911).

Food for thought

When you said "Yes" to Me, you gave up the right to be like everyone else. That is why you draw experiences to yourself that will cleanse yourself of that which does not fit who you are. Over and over, again and again, until I make you see that the past no longer works. I challenge you and tempt you every day with your past, so that you may see that the past is the ultimate delusion. When you said "yes" to Me you gave Me your body, your thoughts and your actions. When they don't suit the new you, the uncomfortableness is unbearable. It will be so EVERY time and when you realize this fully, then and only then will you completely give up desire. For this is the only way man will learn. Very seldom does he learn by quiet reminders. Man's desires and pitfalls are placed there so that I may do My work. When you give up totally, then the temptations will fade. I will never give up on you. Every slip will become harder and harder to bear and less easy to remedy. You will tire of your foolishness because I love you and though not completely aware of it, you did say "Yes".

- Sri Satya Sai Baba.
