Message for the Day… ” Offer salutations to the actions you perform, so they become sacred, bring you good name and contribute to the welfare of the world. “

Today people ignore the law of action and act as they please. It is easy to indulge in sinful deeds but is extremely difficult to bear the bad results they yield! Good and evil, happiness and misery, merit and sin depend on your actions. As is the action, so is the result. Hence the Upanishads teach – “Salute the action” (Tasmai Namah Karmane). Offer salutations to the actions you perform, so they become sacred, bring you good name and contribute to the welfare of the world. Since time immemorial, Bharatiyas offer respect to action, be it big or small, before undertaking it. A dancer pays her respects to the anklets she wears before commencing her performance. An illiterate lorry driver offers his obeisance to the steering wheel before driving the vehicle. Why salute the action? It is to discriminate and choose right actions and to give up the sense of ego or doership! This is the sacredness that our culture imparts to action.
