Happy Republic Day!
Thursday January 24, 2019
26th January, Republic Day, is a moment of pride for all Indians. The Constitution of Independent India was formed on this day. A Constitution of any country constitutes of a set of rules based on which functioning, justice, etc. is carried out.
Flag hoisting ceremonies, parades by the armed forces, as well as school children and other cultural functions are a big part of this celebration. It is also the day to acknowledge the contribution of our freedom fighters. Those of who served the country until their last breath. It is the fruit of their sacrifice that we are all able to lead a free democratic life today. A great salute to them because they did not think about themselves or their family and aimed to free the Nation out of hardships of Foreign rule.
Just like they spent their lives to serve their country
Let us have a look at what Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan, a Spiritual Scientist, says about the service of others. He says, “The purpose of the human life is service to others. Service to others means that you use your mind, your speech and your actions for others.” One may ask what is to gain, if he serves others in this way. What will he be left with? For which Param Pujya Dadashri responds, “The deepest science behind this is that when one uses his mind, speech and body for serving others, [you] will have everything. You will not encounter any obstacles in your life if you help others in any way. Moreover, service to others should be sincere and done from the heart; only then, it is fruitful. When service to people is done without any expectations of recognition, then it is real. Prestige may indeed come, but one should not have any expectations and desire for it.”
So, let us come together this Republic Day and aim to serve others as much as possible with a pure intent of just serving. Thereby helping our nation, without any expectation or desire for recognition or any sort of prestige.
