Loving and Divine One,
Let the choicest blessings of God and the masters be upon all of you. I take this opportunity to pray for you and send my best wishes on the occasion of Vijaya Dashami, the Day of Victory, which falls on September 30 this year. It is the end of nine days of worshiping the Divine Mother.
We need strength and ability. In Sanskrit this is called shakti.
Let us consider the quality of compassion a little and try to cultivate it in our lives. We know that the word "passion" in English implies strong and barely controllable emotions and their outburst. We humans are passionate by nature. We are often overpowered by our emotions. Passion also means "intense enthusiasm." We have tremendous power and strength, but it is mostly misdirected. We become passionately attached to the world, so we suffer a lot. We should not waste our time, talent, and treasure worrying with emotion. We should use our enthusiasm and love practically.
On this day, the birthday of our beloved Guruji Paramahamsa Prajnananandaji, our loving thoughts turn towards him and all that he embodies as a living example of Kriya Yoga. Whether renunciant or householder, every kriyavan can emulate his selfless dedication as a model of the most elevated spirituality in the practical life. It is the promise of our lineage that there will always be a realized master to guide sincere seekers on the path of Kriya Yoga.
To meditate you have to prepare your field. You require receptivity. Introvert stage cannot be perceived by the five sense organs or the mind, thought, intellect or ego. Everything is coming from one soul, who is remaining inside. So if you go there, you will be free from mind, thought, intellect and ego.
