Thank You Aum. Thank You Gayathri.
There is nothing with which to compare You, the Absolute,
whether that comparison has form or whether it is formless.
This true Self, within and beyond form and formless,
impersonal and personal, is our own Supreme Being.
To help us to remember You at all times, we develop the
habit of calling out, silently or orally, one, or more, of Your
numberless names while we go about our worldly duties.
Chanting Your names is another way we always think of
You, associate with You, cleanse our Pineal Gland, and purify
our consciousness. This is a way we cleanse our internal and
external environment while we come back to knowledge,
consciousness, experience and awareness of
and all other unhealthy things, impediments to our spiritual
advancement. Most importantly, it restores our spiritual
and cultural heritage while bringing us back here to
religions, creeds and species of life, You, as well as we,
have no designations. We, the true Self, are spirit, in quality
one with You, the Supreme Spirit of all.
Our study is centered in You. We study the scriptures, other
spiritual teachers and teachings, ancient and modern. We
practice the teachings, think critically about these teachings,
and reflect on that which we have studied and practiced.
After all, we can know that we know what we know, because
now we have knowledge, observation and experience as a
consequence of our spiritual practice.
Our sacrifice to You consist in chanting Your Holy Name, and
considering whether what we are doing leads us closer to You.
We always make that choice which in the final analysis, leads
us closer to conscious union with You.
You are within all and all are within You. Our objective or
goal in our endeavors is to remember and see Your
Omnipresence in all and serve You in all.
