The mystical surgery

I want to talk about a topic, which has great relevance in the life of a mystic. In modern times, surgical performance is looked upon as a marvellous feat of human ingenuity and skill.

Surgery has been defined as the manual treatment of injuries of disorders of the body. It is operative therapeutics. A surgeon is a medical man, treating injuries, deformities and diseases by manual operation.

There are also plastic surgeons who try to improve the physical images of men, women and children. They try to remove disfiguring scars. They eliminate excess tissue and wrinkles from the skin. It is a good work. People feel worried about their physical deformity, and they feel happy after the deformity is removed.

We hear, now and then, about the operations conducted in hospitals and nursing homes. An operation may be major or minor. It may be successful or unsuccessful.

The surgery about which I want to talk to you is not conducted in an operation theatre in some hospital where doctors and nurses work together. But the surgery which I have in mind is conducted elsewhere. It is performed in convent of monastery. It is done by a person whom we do not call a surgeon. But, instead, we call him a Spiritual Guide. He is a physician and a surgeon both.

For every moral and spiritual ailment, he suggests a prescription, and for every injury and deformity of soul, heart, and mind, he uses his subtle surgery with the utmost caution and skill.

According to him, diseases of the body are not so dangerous as the diseases of soul, heart and mind.

He holds that physical deformities are nothing as compared to deformities of life and living.

To remove such type of deformities is not easy. It is an uphill task. It calls for the co-operation of the surgeon and the person who wants the deformities to be removed.

The deformities cannot be removed unless there is change of heart. Change of thoughts is necessary. Change of outlook is also necessary. The view of life needs to be changed.

In other words, there should be internal change and transformation.

A spiritual guide is more like a shepherd, who looks after his flock of sheep.

He is like a physician, who treats different patients suffering from different diseases, in a different way.

He is like an umbrella, giving shade and shelter to his disciples, and protecting them from the rays of the sun and the storm and the rain.

He is like a sheltering tree, under which his disciples sit and enjoy well-earned rest and respite.

His love for his disciples is flower-like.

He hates nothing except falsehood.

He fears nothing except, fear itself. He teaches , guides and inspires his disciples.

The progress and happiness of his disciples, constitute his source of inner satisfaction and joy.

He loves and he is loved.

He, in his moments of exaltation and ecstasy, asks his followers to embark on an exciting tour. In this tour, they need not  cover a long distance. It need not be a tiresome tour. But, it is undoubtedly an exciting and an interesting tour.

It is a tour of Self-Discovery. It constitutes introspection.

Its watchword is “know thyself”.

Once the tour is undertaken, some hidden things are revealed. The tour gives an insight and leads to the discovery of the imperishable treasure lying unnoticed and points to the magnificent power, lying dormant and hidden within.

As soon as an individual has embarked on the Voyage of Self-Discovery, he is amazed and surprised to find that everything is within.

Man is kingdom in himself. The body is the surface. The heart is an oasis. The mind is a garden. The legs are the vehicles. The hands are the implements and tools. The veins are the rivers. The artery is the rivulet. The blood is the ocean.

The glands are the mountains. The scars are the hills. The moles are the sandy dunes. The wrinkles are the plateau. The hair are the trees. Perspiration is the rain. We breathe. Our breath is the air. Our fast breathing is the wind. Our slow and rhythmic breathing is the gentle breeze.

So, what is there that is not in man? If only one may try to discover, he will find that there is everything in man.

One is liable to exclaim with Wordsworth:

“Enough of Science and of Art;

Close up those barren leaves;

Come forth, and bring with you a heart,

That watches and receives”.

If you have that heart, which “watches and receives”, you will say the same thing which Hamlet said:

 

“…I have of late – but wherefore I know not – lost all my mirth, foregone all custom of exercise and indeed, it goes too heartily with my disposition that this goodly frame, the earth, seems to me a sterile promontory, this most excellent canopy, the air, look you, this brave o’erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire, why, it appears no other thing to me than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapours. What a piece of work is man! how noble in reason! how infinite in faculty! In form and moving how express and admirable! In action how like an angel! In apprehension how like a god! The beauty of the world! the paragon of animals! And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? man delights not me – no, nor woman neither.”

The voyage  of Self-Discovery will reveal that our life is a combination of good and evil. As Shakespeare has said:

  “The web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together: our virtues would be proud, if our faults, whipped them not and our crimes would despair, if they were not cherished by our virtues.”

For our misfortunes and troubles we, sometimes, blame our luck and sometimes our stars and place all the blame on external factors and circumstances, not realising that we are responsible for what we have done.

Our wrong actions result in painful reaction. Every cause has its effect.

The heart which “Watches and receives”, will, there can be no doubt, agree with what Shakespeare wrote:

“This is the excellent foppery of the world, that when we are sick in fortune-often the surfeit of our own behaviour-we make guilty of our disasters the sun, the moon, and the stars: as if we were villains by necessity, fools by heavenly compulsion; knaves, thieves and teachers by spherical predominance, drunkards, liars, and adulterers by an enforced obedience of planetary influence; and all that we are evil in, by a divine thrusting on! An admirable evasion of whoremaster man, to lay his goatish disposition to the change of  a star..”

If we go a little further in your interesting voyage of Self-Discovery, which you have undertaken, you will find that man has, within him, sentiments, emotions, feelings and the will. They are the guiding forces within. Heart is the abode of love and hatred.

Mind, the noble mind-the vivacious mind-the elegant mind manufactures thought for us-good or bad.

Man has got his own self-image. It may be of self-knowledge, self-respect, or self-reverence, self-control, or self pity. They are such powerful invisible factors, that they can make or  mar the life of an individual.

It has been aptly said:

“Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control,These three alone lead life to sovereign power, Yet not for power (power of herself would come uncalled for), but to live by law; Acting the law we live by without fear.”

The exciting feelings, too, are quite at hand. The glamorous intuition, the sublime inspiration and the healthy imagination are ever prepared to take an individual from the multitude, and place him apart, with those who are known and respected for their contribution to human welfare and happiness.

In the life of everyone of us, some glorious moments come, which make our life happy, bright and gay.

The sun-splashed day comes and goes. The dark clouds come and pass.

Then, there are exotic days and exotic nights, having their own traditions.

People pulsate with life and vigour, burying their dead past deep, and looking eagerly forward to bright day and a moonlight, ushering in a bright future, which may bring with it a new message- a message of “Know thyself”, “Self-knowledge”, “mutual love”, “mutual respect”, “mutual understanding”, “mutual adjustment”, “live and let live”, “love” and “toleration”- in other words, of humanism.

How to harness this hidden power for constructive purposes, and how to use it best for one’s own harmonious and balanced development, as well as for the benefit of others, is the problem, which the spiritual guide and teacher solves for his disciples.

He understands the ailment of each and prescribes a prescription according to the malady.

To some, he points out the Path of Service. To others, he recommends the Path of Self-Surrender. There are others, however, for whom he thinks that, Silence is best. He would ask some of his disciples to sit in seclusion for some time.

For those suffering from the malady of egoism or self-conceit, he recommends a unique treatment. The “forgive and forget” treatment is an efficacious treatment. Such people, suffering from such disease should try to win over the hearts of the people, and get their good wishes. They should forgive their enemies for their past enmity, show them amity and let there be no disparity.

To some, he suggests Fasting.

To others, he recommends Prayer and Remembrance. Ascetic practices are also meant for a few patients, who have physical strength, stamina and vigour.

To some he points out the Path of Renunciation. He emphasizes that whatever the spiritual ailment may be, the Path of Love is sure to restore the patient to normal spiritual health.

To those suffering from lust, greed and avarice, he prescribes one world prescription- “Contentment”.

He suggests a new Code of Conduct. This Code serves as a beacon light on the path of the seeker of Truth. He suggests to his disciples that they should try to have a receptive heart, and a trained mind.

Friends and foes should be loved alike. Let the people abuse and admire. It does not matter much.

Those who prosecute and persecute should be treated as engaged in their part-time job.

Those, who ever moan and bemoan and, talk of poverty and penury, should be left alone to enjoy the futile exercise of their morbid imagination.

Those, who boast of their influence and wealth, should be left alone to worship the two unfaithful goddesses in placid peace and in their own troubled heart.

Frustration is a deep wound, which is healed gradually and slowly. Frustration implies lack of Hope , Belief and Faith. Go to and be treated by Hope, nursed by Belief, and ultimately, operated upon by Faith.

Pessimism is a compound fracture. Let there be bandage of uplifting and encouraging thoughts, inspiring ideas and noble ideals.

Depression is a simple fracture. Depression implies lack of control of thoughts. As you think so you become. Depressing thoughts make you depressed. Indigestion also leads to depression. So, it is advisable to eat less and digest more.

Fresh air, gentle walks, pursuit of hobby, literature and poetry, serve as an antidote to depression.

Fear, Craft and Avarice are the wrinkles on the face. Such wrinkles can be removed by Courage, Sincerity and Self-Satisfaction.

Greed is an ugly scar on the body. Greed leads to exploitation and manipulation. It is a negation of happiness. This scar requires the attention of an eminent surgeon, who can be no other than an inspired spiritual guide.

Egoism and Selfishness are the enlarged glands. Let them undergo and operation at the hands of Altrusim, and Benevolence.

A Gland is a major sin.

Pride and prejudice are the injuries, caused by a sharp-edged weapon They require the ointment known as “Humbleness, Meekness, and Humanism”.

Injustice, Hypocrisy, Deceit, and Duplicity are the other injuries, caused by a blunt weapon. A different ointment called, “justice, Sincerity, Fair Play and Frankness” is sure to heal such injuries.

Self control

Self Control is a sovereign remedy for many ills of omission and commission.

To have self-control means to have control of the mind and to have an iron-will and dogged determination.

It is self-control, which gives dignity to life.

Tongue should be controlled. More injuries are caused by the tongue than by the sword.

Thoughts should be controlled, and passions, emotions and sentiments, likewise, should be controlled. Desires should also be controlled.

Meditation

Meditation is also useful. Those who have no concentration, those who have a grasshopper mind, those who have negative thoughts, those, who cannot control their mind, for them meditation is best.

It should be done in a secluded place and preferably in the daytime.

During meditation one should sit at ease with his eyes closed, lips closed, ears closed and tongue tight. Silence of soul, mind, heart and tongue is necessary. Time and place should be fixed.

What one should meditate on during meditation differs from person to person. The spiritual guide should be consulted before undertaking meditation.

Guiding-posts

Will should be direct rightly.

Sentiments should be regulated correctly.

Emotions should be controlled properly.

There can be no good life without good living.

 

Milestones

Be gentle, firm and loving.

Do not creep but walk.

Run and do not feel tired.

Smile and tears are also a part of the game called life.

Be generous, but not ostentatious

 

The question and Answer

Some members have asked me as to how, and in what manner, they should remember me after I am dead and gone. I am furnishing them the information required:

People may boast of their pomp and power,

But, I want to live in an ivory tower;

They may sing of their wealth and treasure,

ut I am happy to enjoy my leisure;

They may enjoy a glittering goblet on green grass,

But, I find myself placed in a different class;

They may feel proud of their family and valiant deed,

But, I do not believe in colour, caste or creed;

They may tell tales of their romance and love,

but, I think I have still to wait, watch and serve;

They may talk of their influence and fame,

but, to me, they go by the same door by which they came;

They may be interested in domination and strife,

But, I want to lead a carefree, simple life;

They may extol their ambitions and show,

But, I am content with what my Great God may bestow.

I am happy and satisfied to lead my life with the Bride of poverty of exquisite beauty, guiding me to the path of simple living and high thinking.

I do not expect anyone to talk about me and tell tale, which I have told today, after I have ceased breathing.

It is enough, if you remember me as one who loved you well and loved you wisely too, giving you a sense of direction, proportion and perspective, a goal and a definite purpose.

I am neither  in hurry nor in worry. I am ever in relaxed frame of mind

I  am thankful to get and receive whatever my Great God of Glory and Majesty in his Infinite Grace and Abounding Generosity, may gracefully give, or bestow.

Ekisvi sharif – Safar 1440 Hijri -Oct 2018

 

This approx on: Wednesday 31st  October 2018

Ekisvi Sharif : 21st Safar 1440 Hijri
(Depending on Lunar date of your country).
On every twenty-first of the Lunar Month in Ajmer Sharif, at the Shrine of Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A) a  highly inspiring programme of Fathia-e- Hazrat Imaam -E-Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) is celebrated at a specific demise at the shrine in Ajmer Sharif Dargah. This is called “Ekisvi Sharif” (Meaning 21th).
** Who was Hazrath (His Eminence) Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) ??? ***
Alī ibn Abī Ṭālib ; 13th Rajab, 22 or 16 BH – 21st Ramaḍān, 40 AH; was the cousin and son-in-law of the final prophet Muhammad (PBUT), ruling over the Islamic Caliphate from 656 to 661. A son of Abu Talib, Hazrath Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) was also the first male convert to Islam. Sufis consider Hazrat Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) the fourth and final of the Rashideen (Rightly guided Caliphs).
His father was Abu Talib and his mother was Fatima bint Asad, but he was raised in the household of Prophet Muhammad (PBUT), who themselves were raised by Abu Talib, Muhammad’s (PBUT) uncle, and Hazrat Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu)’s father.
When prophet Muhammad (PBUT) reported receiving a divine revelation, Hazrat Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) was the first male to accept his message, dedicating his life to the cause of Islam.
Hazrat Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) migrated to Medina shortly after Prophet Muhammad (PBUT) did. Once there Prophet Muhammad (PBUT) told Hazrat Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) that God had ordered him to give his daughter, Fatimah, to Hazrat Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) in marriage.
Hazrat Ali (Karam Allah-Wajhu) was appointed Caliph by the Companions (the Sahaba) of Prophet Muhammad (PBUT) in Medina after the assassination of the third caliph, Uthman ibn Affan.

The Mystical Capsules

 

 

At the very outset, let us pray and invoke the help and Guidance of God that, He may give us strength and the courage of our convictions to stand and uphold our ideal of a better and happier world. A world where there are no invidious distinctions of caste, creed, clan or colour, where misunderstandings disappear, where people have learnt to live in harmony and peace, where people have learnt to appreciate each other’s point of view, and where the spirit of tolerance and forbearance serves as a check and a brake on the acquisitive and aggressive instincts of men and women inhabiting the globe.

 

How we should live, move and work in this Age of stress? Why should there be famine, where abundance lies? Why should there be lack, when there is no lack in the higher realm? Why should we be cruel to our sweet self?

We are the world’s beautiful ornament. Let us hear the music of life, but we should not hear it sadly. But, when we hear it, we should be calm, collected, placid and happy. There should be no moaning, groaning, sighing, wailing and weeping. When we hear the music of life, let us laugh and smile. Then,

“Come, my friend, tis not too late to seek a newer world.”

Let us be

“Strong in will to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”

You may have seen people, taking a rich diet, containing proteins, vitamins and minerals. They take milk, malt and cocoa. They try to take a nutritive diet in order to compensate for the leakage and loss of energy.

Some people take medicated oil massages, which to them is an effective treatment for muscular dystrophy, paralysis, strokes, arthritis, sciatica, lumbago, gout, rheumatic complaints, and for post-polio conditions. They think that the medicine, medicated oil health massages serve as a preventive medicine to relieve them from aches and pains and to tone up their circulatory system. Moreover, there are so many people who are victims of nervous shocks and heart disease.

It may give them temporary relief, but it cannot effectively cure the disease. The disease is not caused mainly by the deficient diet, but is mostly due to other causes. It may be due to anger, hatred, fear, excitement, feverish activity, tension, anxiety, exhaustion, fatigue or worry.  Physical rest is not enough. What is needed is mental rest. Let the mind be at peace.

So it is better:

  • To fix some time, when you are all alone.
  • To stop the machinery of the mind for some time-maybe even for a few minutes.
  • To forgive and forget.
  • To forget past failures and disappointments, and to forge a bright future by your own unaided efforts.

It is not wise to brood over the past. Let us manufacture our happiness. It is not and it cannot be manufactured for us anywhere else. All our happiness is self-created. And for all our unhappiness, we are ourselves responsible.

Nothing can enter in our life, unless we so allow anything to enter. Can anyone enter your house without your permission? I do not think so. And if anybody may so enter, you will treat the person as a trespasser, and will try to eject him either by the intervention of court, or by your own efforts.

Mystics have been careful to see, that nothing enters their life, which they do not like, or which they think is not conducive to their happiness, spiritual advancement or to their inner joy.

You decide whether you are to be happy or unhappy. I am sure you will decide to be happy. Once you have chosen happiness as you object or goal, then discard unhappiness, and also discard all those things which bring unhappiness.

Let us then, like the mystics, wait on God to renew our strength.

To be happy, it is necessary that we should have calm thoughts, tranquillity and peace of mind, a clean soul, a trained mind, a receptive heart, and also eyes, that see romance in everyday life, and in the common places.

In order to be happy, we should have a child’s heart and spiritual simplicity. Displaying childlike simplicity in middle or old age denotes a genius. Indeed, “A light heart lives long.”

It is better to avoid super-sophistication. The mystics have walked on the surface of the earth with its many roads, lanes, and by-lanes, paths, and by-paths with measured steps. They have been active in the performance of their duty. Their eyes were in search of truth, and they utilized their tongue for preaching and propagating, what they thought best in the interest of the failing and tumbling humanity, and in giving discourses so varied and various.

The mystics are impregnated with idealism. Thus, they are idealists. They have their own ideas and ideals. They have their own dreams and devotions.

You may also have dreams by all means. But, do not have day dreams. Try to make your dreams a reality. Dream by all means, of plans and schemes to make your life noble and sublime. Your dreams and visions should aim at making your life useful to you and to others.

Have an ideal in life, and pursue it vigorously and assiduously.

Let us plan our life according to the mystic pattern. Let us plan and dream accordingly. Let us chalk out:

Perennial happiness plan;

Live in peace plan;

Service without reward plan;

Conserve energy plan;

Forgive and forget plan;

Getting better and better plan;

To be true in faith plan;

To be firm in belief plan;

A new dignity and sense of purpose plan,

To have a future with promise plan,

Liberation of our soul plan;

Overcoming temptation plan;

Turning misfortune into fortune plan.

Why hesitate then? Come, visualise, act and plan. Make your life beautiful. You must feel like singing a song. Let your life be as bright as the moon and as beautiful as a star sprinkled night.

Mysticism, being the cry of the soul, is a part of Universal History. The other part is setting an example of better living, contributing substantially to human happiness, ensuring safety, and security to men and women, encouraging the common love and self-confidence, working towards improvement of dental, physical, mental and spiritual health, and encouraging wholesome recreation among youth and soft conversation among old person.

A mystic’s involvement does not end here or there. It has identified itself with human happiness, human welfare and human progress, through various devices and services to the community, like:

Meeting the needs and requirement of youth.

Reclamation of antisocial elements.

Rehabilitation of the displaced person.

Sober advice to the business community to observe ethical standards in their enterprise.

Freeing women from bigotry, superstition, and narrow mindedness.

Providing social equality and equality of opportunities. Acting as a co-ordinating link between the masses and the classes.

It is a total involvement.

Mystic culture should be like a coin and it should be in circulation. One side of this coin should have inscription-“Self-image” and the other side of the coin should bear the inscription-“Devotion to the cause”.

Do you understand its implications? It means that, your self-image is of great importance to you. And you cannot be a man with a mission, unless you are devoted to the cause.

Let us take a short trip to the glory of the immemorial mystic culture. Let us walk through the shadowy lanes of the centuries gone. We are out to witness the programme, depicting the spiritual heritage of mankind.

Time will tell you stories,that will astonish you. Day will tell you stories of the adventure of living. Night will tell you stories of people, who have searched, and ultimately found their real self.

There is a stupendous panorama of romanticism. Romance combined with love, lent beauty and harmony to life. Lives simply lived, having no flashes of the so-called awe—inspiring majesty, became the focus of attention for myriads of people.

The life of a mystic is a festival, which is neither rustic nor traditional. It has, within it, the throbs of the aspirations of the people, who are in search of truth, and it has a wealth of the history of mankind, trying to overcome temptation. At times, it seems as if some musician is singing a melodious song, and thereby, creating new horizons.

Proceeding further, we find that the city gate of the Palace of Truth has still the throbs of those who lived, worked and died for a noble cause.

Their life displays a treasure of exquisite mystic handicrafts, with which you can adorn your life.

 

Leadership is not merely the matter of occupying a high rank, or sitting in the Upper or Lower House of the Legislature. It implies the power of inspiring confidence in men and women, who are meant to be trained to live and to work together in harmony and peace.

The Prophets and saints have been the real leaders of men. They inspired people by precepts and practice.

Prophet Mohammed (PBUT) lays down that:

“The most excellent Jihad (Holy War) is that for the conquest of self.”

And

“The best of alms is that which the right hand giveth, and the left hand knoweth not of.”

Lord Jesus Christ advises thus:

“Be not afraid, only believe”.

And,

“Take ye heed, watch and pray; For ye know not when the time is.”

According to Lord Buddha:

“Happy is he who has overcome all selfishness: happy is he who has attained peace and happy is he who has found the truth.”

 

Lord Krishna suggest thus:

“Let not thy peace be disturbed even if thou art ridiculed or ill-spoken of by others.”

 

Guru Nanak Sahib lays down:

“They who make truth their fasting. Contentment their place of pilgrimage, divine knowledge and meditation their ablutions, mercy their idols and forgiveness their rosary, are foremost in God’s favour.”

 

If you read history carefully, you will find that, ignorance, superstition, bigotry, lust for power, and ambition have done more harm than all the wars waged so far.

Every failure can be turned into success. To be dejected or despondent means and implies to be overpowered by failure.

Search is always rewarding.

Zeal wants devotion.

Love wants sacrifice.

Honour barters.

Beauty alters.

Favour falters.

Fortune is blind.

Future is uncertain.

Our belonging to a mystical order involves justice, honesty and sobriety in our individual life.

A mystic always makes an earnest endeavour to keep himself close to the Source of Grace, and to make everyday a day of thanksgiving and a day of opportunity for him.

It is true that God helps everybody, but it must be remembered that He has a special care for those who belong to the household of faith.

Birds have wings. They fly with wings. You, too, have wings. Why not fly with them? You, too can fly with your two wings-Faith and Belief.

Sometimes, our life is visited by a crisis. A crisis lasts so long as we sit and ponder over it. But, as soon as we stand up and act, the crisis is diffused. The very crisis becomes an opportunity. Let us avail the opportunity afforded by crisis.

Let us pray, that God may grant us the prop of Faith, the treasure of Hope, the bliss of Peace, the ecstasy of Joy emanating from Divine Love and the Glory of His vision.

Let us not pitch our hopes too high. Hope is a good companion, but an erring guide. When the ship of Hope sinks, there is nothing left, but a string of bubbles, marking and pointing out the spot, where the ship of Hope has just sunk.

Our prayer, then should be:

I want nothing beyond what I am given.

All I crave is love.

All I seek is Thy Pleasure.

All I long for is Thy Grace.

All I want is sympathy.

All I desire is understanding.

All I yarn is happiness.

All I ask for is courage.

There are beautiful moments in life, which deserve a gift of love.

Let us give someone we love, something rare and useful, combining devotion with foresight. A piece of good advice is a good gift, indeed.

Avail every opportunity.

You are a builder. Your build under the vigilant eye of the Architect of the Universe. Build for better life, and build for better living.

Do not brood over your suffering. Face it before it is too late. Do not think, that you are born in a paradise. But, think that you are born in the world with all its suffering. You must take the world as it is.

Shakespeare thus describes life:

“The web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together; our virtues would be proud, if our faults whipped them not; and our crimes would despair, if they were not cherished by our virtues.”

Life does not require a soft bed. It can be beautiful with sunshine, and colour, the wind and the clouds. It can also be made a dark lane, where there are no shadows.

The mystics, by their smile, have shown, that to them, there is no difference between life and death.

In the short span of life, try to occupy a driver’s seat. When you are, thus, seated, how can anyone take you to a place where you do not want to go?

Fact-finding may be a good thing, but fault-finding cannot be justified on any account. The mystics have always refrained from disclosing, or exposing the faults, shortcomings or limitations of others.

In fact, sainthood means covering the shortcomings of others with a thick cloth.

It is better to be born lucky than rich.

Your positive imagination is your good friend.

True love is unchanging. It has no caste and no colour. It is the same in the East and the West. And, it will be the same for ever.

Our lifestyle should exhibit a model of restrained emotions. In Nature, we find joy and not sadness. Let the beauty of Nature sink into the mind and relieve us of memories sad. Let us understand the eloquent teachings of Nature. Let Nature be your teacher. The eminent English poet Wordsworth thus says:

“One impulse from the vernal wood,

Can teach us more of man,

Of moral, evil and of good,

Than all the sages can.”

 

We go to a physician, when we are ill. When we are under his treatment, we follow his suggestions. We show our confidence in his skill, and we co-operate with him. For the solution of our problems, let us repose our implicit faith in the Great Physician, and I am sure your faith will reward you amply.

The best way to shoot a lion is to go up and shoot. So go up and shoot the brute in you, which is more ferocious than the lion.

Let us search, and find out the new lights in and around us.

Do you hear the clarion call of the glorious morning?

 

The clarion call of the glorious morning, is to the effect, that you are mine as I am yours, and so I am here to give you glad tidings and a report.

 

The starts that shine over you, do not come to you. You look to the start above, that are shining over you.

Time will tell you truth, the whole truth, nothing but truth.

It is good to get love, but, it is better to give love. Words give colour to your thoughts, and love gives sweetness to your words.

By all means, let the wise world peer into our life, and analyse one by one, our shrieks and our moans. But, let it not mock over us, and ridicule us, after we are dead and gone.

Some mystics stare in frank amazement at their surroundings. They find a peculiar sort of sophistication above them, which does not pleasantly impress them. Neither be artful or artificial in your bearings.

Indignation, frustration, sorrow and suffering, worry and woe, anxiety, fear and pain are a part and parcel of human life.

It is the price that we have to pay of being born.

Let us take courage in both hands, and overcome them before we go to sleep again.

If you exhibit patience, you will emerge as bright as the moon after the eclipse.

Here are some mystical capsules for you. Take one capsule a day. You may, or may not keep the doctor away. But, I think, that you shall get better and better every day.

 

                                                                 ********************************

The Nightingale said to the Rose in words simple and plain,

Thou are torn and split, and I in anguish ever complain;

Why I do not see the face of the Friend, I cannot explain,

Though the Friend as a gift of love has given his pain.
