hoping that isnt the way it plays out..in saying that we do need change and we need it now...
Wise words. Indeed change is so required but scary at the same time.
Please try the prayer for peace:
asato ma sadgamaya
tamaso ma jyotirgamaya
mrtyorma amritam gamaya
om shanti shanti shanti. (Brihad Aranyak Upnishad 1.3.28)
Lead Us From the untruth(also called Maya or illusion) To the truth,
Lead Us From Darkness To Light,
Lead Us From Death To Immortality,
OM (the universal sound of God)
Let There Be Peace Peace Peace. - Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 1.3.28.
What is "asat" (also called maya or illusion). The manifest universe is called maya because God made it from formless Prakriti with His power. The
Universe is destroyed when God withdraws His power from it. God is called "Satrupa" or "Sachhidanand" because God is true (means always stays the
same, is never destroyed). So pray to take me to "Sat" or what is true, that is God.
God is the source of light in this Universe. Universe was created in darkness, and no star emitted any light until God entered it. The stars shine
until God's power is acting in this Universe. So take me to the source of light "Jyoti", that is God.
Jeev (soul) is imprisoned in a never-ending cycle of life and death, due to his own ignorance. Jeev becomes fond of objects created from Prakriti, and
develops an attachment to them. These becomes the chains of his bondage, forcing jeev to keep coming back to these objects in different bodies. Amrit
(moksha) is the state of freedom from this bondage, the state of eternal bliss.
