Message for the Day…

Divine Life is based on the quality of calm serenity (satwa guna), which must be cultivated. This quality can be built only upon satwic food – food that promotes health, strength, lightness of spirit, and earnestness of endeavour. There is no use distributing the juice of spirituality to underfed and weak people; make them strong enough to entertain strong beliefs and preserve strong ideals. Physical hunger must first be appeased by simple pure (satwic) food. Then, try to repeat the name of the Lord, the name that appeals to you the most. Do not treat the Name lightly; respect it even if you hear it from the lips of a beggar who uses it to procure alms. Though the person who utters it may not be good or may not have good intention, do not ill-treat the Name; for its purity can never be harmed. Thank them for reminding you of the Lord and go your way. Above all, do not laugh at and discourage those who call on the Lord.
