Message for the Day…”Lively association alone produces morality, justice, compassion, sympathy, love, tolerance, equanimity and many other qualities that toughen and train the character, and mould the personality of an individual. Culture is the consequence of the co-mingling of hearts and heads.”

To divest oneself of all contacts with others, and tread a lonely path is a sign of weakness, of fear and not of courage. Lively association alone produces morality, justice, compassion, sympathy, love, tolerance, equanimity and many other qualities that toughen and train the character, and mould the personality of an individual. Culture is the consequence of the co-mingling of hearts and heads. A group of individuals, who are charged with hatred or contempt towards each other, cannot produce any beneficial effect on any in the group; Sama-chintha, that is, a common outlook or rather a common inward-vision is the essential factor. Common belief systems, opinions and attitudes is key. This Sama-chintha must result in a flood of divine bliss that envelops and brightens an entire community. The consciousness that one is Divine and that everyone else is equally so, is the best bond for a community, that bliss is the best atmosphere to nurture and sustain communities.
