The Destiny of Man
The digit one may be raised to a figure of any value by adding zeros after it; but if that one is omitted, zeroes by themselves have no value. Similarly so long as the Jiva (individual soul) does not cling to God, Who is the One, he has no value, for all things here get their value only from their connection with God. So long as the Jiva clings to God, Who is the value-giving figure behind the world, and does all his work for Him, he gains more and more thereby; on the contrary, if he overlooks God and adds to his work many grand achievements, all done for his own glorification, he will gain nothing there from.
First gain God, and then gain wealth; but do not try to do the contrary. If, after acquiring spirituality, you lead a worldly life, you will never lose your peace of mind.
Do you talk of social reform? Well, you may do so after realising God. Remember, the Rishis of yore gave up the world in order to attain God. This is the one thing needful. All other things shall be added to you, if indeed you care to have them. First see God, and then talk of lectures and social reforms.
A newcomer to a city should first secure a comfortable room for his rest at night, and after keeping his luggage there, he may freely go about the city for sightseeing. Otherwise he may have to suffer much in the darkness of night to get a place for rest. Similarly, after securing his eternal resting place in God, a newcomer to this world can fearlessly move about doing his daily work. Otherwise, when the dark and dreadful night of death comes over him, he will have to encounter great difficulties and sufferings.
What is Satsanga ?
Satsanga is a Sanskrit word, meaning, a close association of companionship with a Self-realised soul. Satsanga is also discussion or hearing of spiritual truths expressed by Self-realized Masters. In the initial stages of spirituality Satsanga is more beneficial than meditation. Satsanga should be done daily for some time.
By discussing spiritual subjects, the mind will get concentrated on God. Just as the pot made of gold does not change its value when it is deformed, Satsanga whenever and wherever performed, never turns to be ineffective or barren. Let us carry the torch of Satsanga to remove the darkness of Kusanga (bad company).
We have regular Satsangas at Nachiketa Tapovan. Agnihotra is performed at sunrise and sunset time followed by Meditation at our Dhyana Mandir (Meditation Hall). All are welcome to avail this opportunity and utilize our Dhyana Mandir. Let our hearts get inspired with the divine messages from these programmes, which lifts us up from the turmoils of the ordinary life that one lives in this world.
