THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK

 

Lead Us From the Unreal To the Real

 

We are Souls not the miserable bodies and minds. The human soul is eternal and immortal, perfect and infinite. This longing to remember and regain our true nature will be haunting us until we reach the goal, until we realise we are the Self. It is this longing which expresses in the form of innumerable desires. This teleological urge will not go away until we reach the goal. This unconscious longing and how to remember our forgotten divinity is the theme of every scripture, specially the Upanishads. All nature is crying through all the atoms for one thing--its perfect freedom. It is this longing of every human being that is so beautifully expressed in the form of prayer in one of the great Upanishads:

 

OM asato ma sad gamaya
Tamaso ma jyotir gamaya
Mrityorma amritam gamaya

 

Om! From ignorance, lead me to Truth;
From darkness, lead me to Light;
From death, lead me to Immortality.
(Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, 1.3.28)
