"He who yearns for God will find Him,

and for the man who has found Him, death dies"

Sri Anandamayi Ma

A yogic understanding of the

Sermon on the Mount. To invoke

Divine Presence and to sanctify the

mind. The goal of prayer is the

harmonization between heaven

and the earth, which means one

develops intuitive vision where one

sees the world as an expression of

the Divine Self.

Do not feel distressed because you are deprived of’ His physical presence. It is the duty of the nearest and dearest of the departed to pray that he may progress on his upward path. However, if tears rush into your eyes because he has left his body, then cry invoking God. To weep for God is everybody’s one and only hope. Also perform as perfectly as possible the duties prescribed by the sastras for the wife and son of the deceased.

What can be expected from this world, whose very nature is constant flux; times are ever

changing. To live in time is to be bound by it — by death*. If you do not rise above time, how can you escape the clutches of death? Had time not borne away the moment that brought you such acute distress and agony, would any life be left in your body? This is the way of the world. What you have experienced happens continually to every family, in one form or another. Console yourself with the thought that this is how the world is fashioned.

When one resides in a country not one’s own, how can one possibly evade the hardships that are a foreigner’s lot? Your Motherland is where there is no question of distress and sorrow, of’ violence and hatred, of estrangement, neither of the opposites of light and darkness. The endeavour to find himself in his real Home, in his true nature, is man’s sole duty. Courage and steadiness are what is required.

*kala means both ‘time’ and ‘death’,
