Message for the Day…”The lesson Hiranyakashipu learnt was that the deha-tatwa must be split if the dehi-tatwa must reveal itself. That is to say, the ‘I-am-body’ consciousness must go, if the ‘I-am-embodied’ consciousness, must emerge.”

The Lord will manifest Himself when the pillar is split with the sword of yearning. Hiranyakashipu did it and immediately the Lord appeared from within that pillar. The Lord did not hide in the pillar anticipating the contingency. He is everywhere; and so, He was there too. The lesson Hiranyakashipu learnt was that the deha-tatwa must be split if the dehi-tatwa must reveal itself. That is to say, the ‘I-am-body’ consciousness must go, if the ‘I-am-embodied’ consciousness, must emerge. So long as you are in the dehi (I-am-embodied) consciousness, no pain or grief, pride or egoism can tarnish you. A small quantity of seawater kept separately in a bottle will smell foul in a few days. As long as it is in the sea, nothing affects it. Be in the sea, as part of it; do not individualise and separate yourself. Do not feel that you are the body (deha), separate from the Indweller (dehi).
