Global Forgiveness Day !

Monday July 6, 2020

Global Forgiveness Day is a day to rivet our attention on a very important act, which is that of forgiveness. Forgiveness is one of the greatest virtues. And therefore, almost every religion preaches in favour of ‘forgive and forget’, and teaches how we can live a happy and peaceful life by ‘allowing the act of forgiveness to supersede one’s feelings of revenge!’

But even while we may like to endorse these preachings, we generally have so many complaints for people around us, “My family does not understand me, my boss does not involve me in the project, the pickpocket robbed me, etc.” And we strongly believe that ‘it is because of them that I had to suffer!’ The biggest glitch therefore while forgiving someone is, ‘why should I, or how can I forgive him / her when I had to suffer so much due to that person’s fault(s).”

This is where Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan shows us the light by serving the wonderful science of:

‘The Fault Is Of the Sufferer’

According to the worldly law, the one who inflicts pain is at fault, while as per God’s law or the Nature’s law, ‘The fault is of the sufferer.’

When our pocket gets picked, then who is at fault? Our neighbour’s pocket did not get picked. Why it is that only our pocket got picked? It is because the regulation as per God’s law, the real law, catches only the one who is at fault. This law is exact and precise - the fault is always of the sufferer. The one who inflicts pain will have to suffer some day for this deed of his. However today, it is our own wrong and faulty past deed which has been caught, and hence being punished for by Nature.

Without fault, suffering cannot arise! Over and above, when we choose to blame others and try to prove that it is indeed the other person’s fault, we are committing further more faults. More faults means more suffering to come! Thus, the sequence of our suffering keeps multiplying! One creates constant pain and worries by pointing out faults in others. This is what creates suffering day and night. And on top of that, we feel, ‘I have to suffer so much.’

When We Can See the Other Person as Innocent, the Forgiveness Is Spontaneous and Genuine

So, to curb our sufferings, we must first begin by forgiving all those people whom we have regarded to be faulty so far, for we now know that it was we who were really faulty. Our intellect will show, “This person did this mistake and he spoilt my work.” But after knowing the science of, ‘The fault is of the Sufferer’, we will be able to forgive the person very easily as we realize that scientifically the other person is merely a post-man chosen by Nature to deliver the result of my wrong deeds. It was only to punish my deeds that Nature got him to do this!

Next We Go Further and Seek Forgiveness From God For Our Faults

Param Pujya Dadashri says, “The suffering exists to the extent that a fault exists. When the fault comes to an end, then no person in this world, no circumstance, will be able to give us suffering.”

Thus, on this special day, at home, in business, at work, everywhere, to find out, ‘Whose fault is it?’, we shall investigate, ‘Who is the one suffering in this?. I am suffering; so it is my fault. Hence I seek forgiveness from God for this fault; and ask Him for strength so that I do not repeat this mistake.’ This will help wash off our mistakes, one by one.

Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan says, “If you are pure, no one can do anything to you - such is the law of this world. Therefore, if you want to break your mistake, then you should break it.” So, why not break it then? And on what better day can we begin that other than today, the Global Forgiveness Day!!!

So come, let us today determine to apply the above understanding at every step in our life, adopt this virtue of forgiving others for the visible mistakes and seeking forgiveness from God for our own faults, and thus set ourselves free from suffering so that we can live our life very happily.

 

Happy Gurupurnima !!

Friday July 3, 2020

Guru Purnima is celebrated as a festival dedicated to Guru. A Guru is the one who acts as a guide to their disciples and shows the path to salvation. Rooted in Sanskrit, the word Guru is derived from ‘gu’ which means darkness and ‘ru’ which denotes the removal of darkness. Hence, a Guru or a teacher is believed to be the one who removes all darkness from our lives.

There are two types of guru, one who guides in worldly life and another who guides on spiritual path. Both are equally important in one's progress.

Param Pujya Dadabhagwan says, ‘Guru is the one whose very sight makes our heads bow.’ Just upon seeing him, our head will bow. That is why if one is a guru, then he must be such that he dissolves all egos. Then you can attain liberation, but not otherwise.

Guru is a lighthouse with whose help we navigate through the obstacles and safely reach the port (our final destination). If you are at the level of twelve cents and he is at the level of fourteen cents, then you should sit with him, because only the living guru can show you your faults. You must always be open and ready to accept whatever faults your Guru shows you, do not retaliate nor protect them or get angry. 

Guru looks after you in every situation that you get placed in, while in His association. He inspires you, guides you, protects you and ensures that you rise above all the difficulties that come your way and reach your ultimate destination. Guru is a beacon of light so that we don’t get lost; a beacon of faith such that we never lose hope.

Only the one who is living and present can help you, so on this auspicious occasion of Gurupurnima, let us all take this opportunity to resolve that we shall always be sincerely willing to listen, accept and introspect upon whatever our Guru points out to us, as His ultimate goal is our spiritual progress.

On this day, Param Pujya Dadabhagwan says that He is completely detached from worldly interactions and becomes one with ‘Dada Bhagwan (Enlightened Soul) that has been manifested within Him. Hence, one can ask for infinite strength and immense blessings for their spiritual progress on this day. Guru Purnima is thus a day, to ask for strength and take blessings from guru, to get the right understanding to have complete awareness and become one with the pure Soul.

Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers’ Day!

This is the day to honor and appreciate the importance and love of all Mothers. There’s no greater worldly love than that of a Mother!

A mother plays a pivotal role in the life of her child’s growth and development. Mother nurtures the future of the country with great love, care and good cultural values. She ensures that her child stands up, becomes a responsible human being and leads a very happy life.

Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan always said, his mother, Zaverba, was a very noble lady; and he described how his mother played an important role in his life since childhood; how she molded his character to make him an extraordinary figure. Let’s take a quick glimpse of one such incidence in Param Pujya Dadashri’s life to understand this.

One day, the little Ambalal (Param Pujya Dadashri) came home, having fought with another boy, who stayed in his neighbourhood. He beat the other boy such that he had started to bleed. When Zaverba got to know about it, she very lovingly explained to Ambalal, “My dear, just as you did, if someone hit and bruised you, I would have to apply medicine to you, isn’t it? Right now, that boy’s mother too must be applying medicine on her child’s wounds. He must be crying and must be in so much of pain! So, look son, from now on, never hurt anyone. If you come home hurt, I will take care of you.” Such was her nobility!!

She lovingly and compassionately made Param Pujya Dadashri understand why he should not beat others. She taught him the highest lesson of life, ‘never hurt others; not even when someone hurts you’; and thus instilled in him the virtues of nobility and non-violence. This is how a mother makes her child a Mahavir!!!

Since today is a special day, celebrated in the honor of that special person who brought us in this world, taught us moral values so that we become a good human being, inculcated in us great virtues to help strengthen our inner personality, and showered all her blessings onto us so that we can accomplish our goals and lead a successful life; so, let us all, greet our dear Mother today, feeling greatly grateful to her for making us reach where we have, in our life today!

Amidst this global pandemic of Coronavirus, followers all over the world eagerly look forward to the daily live satsang of Pujyashree Deepakbhai. During this time of fear and uncertainty, Pujyashree's satsang is really a great blessing.
