Many people come to Me distraught and pray, “Swami, I have no peace. Please bless me with peace of mind”. Remember, peace cannot be got from the outer world; it has to be sought in the heart! Wicked desires breed misery; beneficial desires result in joy. The removal of desire ensures peace (Shanti). When desire after desire multiply in your mind, how can you gain peace? After bhajan and meditation, you repeat Shanti thrice praying for physical, mental and spiritual peace. Only when you are aware of the same soul present in all can you receive peace as a blessing. Most of the time, your mind is tending towards evil (durmathi). You must direct your mind and your intellect into propitious channels of peace and prosperity. Through consistent spiritual practice (Sadhana), correct your faults and mould your excellences to ensure peace for yourself, your society and your nation. Pray daily for the well-being of the Universe, “Samastha Loka Sukhino Bhavantu” (May all the beings in all the worlds be happy).
