Thank You Aum. Thank You Bha. Thank You Gayatri.
Our spiritual practice consists of, and revolves around, always
thinking of You and meditating on You. This is done by praising
and thanking You, calling out Your names and submitting
everything to You: Our thoughts, our pains, our pleasures
our gains. All that we do, all that we offer or give away, all
austerities we may perform, everything we do, we do as an offering
or submission to You.
Surely, we think of You as our anchor, our strength, our
Samaritan, and our Supreme Source of all knowledge,
strength, fame, beauty, wealth, renunciation, and all other
good fortune. Thank You for teaching us how to always
think of You, how to concentrate on You, and how to
meditate on You. By fixing the mind on You, and
changing the "Image/Concept" of the Self from material
to Spiritual, we come back to You.
We meditate on You as the complete Leader always available to
help us solve problems of life. Those problems have their roots
in birth, disease, old-age, and death. You are the grand solution,
the antidote, our way out of an abnormal and corrupt life, Maya.
All praise is due to You alone.
The beginning of this coming back home process happens as we to
begin seeing the self as awareness or spirit temporarily inhabiting a
material body. Simultaneously we engage the mind in always
thinking of You and meditating on You. We think of You as the One,
Most Pure Energy, who is within and beyond all images, places, and
When we finally are exhausted with the external, futile search for sense
gratification, turn and start looking out from within, from the Pineal
Gland, then we are coming back home, coming back through the Seventh
Chakra, to the Self, back to You. Our Source, our Savior, our Redeemer,
our Everything is You. We meditate on You as our Silence and our
Awareness of everything, including Silence.
All that we think, feel, will, say, and do, we do as as surrender,
offering, submission, service to You. This is the way we take
refuge in You. Thank You for continuing to purify us with Your
self- improving association. Thank You for protecting us from
anything or being that could distract us from always thinking
of You and meditating on You. All praise is due to You alone.
Thank You for helping us to always think of You as the One
Omnipresent Supreme Being. Thus, we are able to meditate
on You, here, now, as Consciousness and Awareness, and
Awareness of consciousness and awareness. Gradually, we
come back to Awareness of Your One Immanence and
Transcendence which pervades and transcends everything
we think of as "I," "Me," or "Mine".
We do not have to save the world. We do not have to wait
until everyone else is ready. We can think of You right now,
meditate on You, and begin to live again in our universe of
Peace. You who pervade, and are beyond, every ray of light
and every vibration. You are our earliest condition of
existence, and You are available here in this moment.
