Thought of the day

The very first lesson I gave when I declared My Identity at Uravakonda was: ""Maanasa Bhajare Gurucharanam, Dusthara Bhava Saagara Tharanam."" That is to say: First know that you are in this cycle of birth and death, the ocean of worldly life (bhava saagaram); then resolve on crossing it (tharanam); then fix on a Guru or the Name and Form of God which appeals to you; lastly, dwell on His Glory, do bhajan, but do it with all your mind. He, who is deluded by this relative reality is the worldly person (samsaari); he who is aware that it is only relatively real is the spiritual practitioner (saadhaka).
