There is only one thing you need to do, keep cleanliness. Keep your heart clean, then your home, then your city.
First clean your heart, and don’t stop there.
Don’t do anything that will make you go to jail.
If the inner mind is clean, then the behavior is right. Then everyone becomes our friend.
If the heart is clean, then behavior is better.
If anger comes up, how to overcome that? Through Sudarshan Kriya.
If anger rises, then how to get rid of them? Do Sudarshan Kriya, pranayaam, meditation.
You do not need to fear.
Worshipping the Universal consciousness is Seva.””Seva also keeps the mind happy.
Serve the consciousness and keep your heart clean. The same thing in simpler words is called, Devotion to Lord and Devotion to Country.
Those who do a lot of Seva feel much faith in God. And those who have a lot of faith, they serve society.
The people who serve, they start having faith.
Keep your inner self clean by doing pranayam.
Distribute sweets, become sweet yourself.
Whatever you wished to do last year and couldn’t accomplish, pray that you can accomplis this year.
Pray and take sankalpa too.
Sankalpa means intention.
The things that were left incomplete last year, pray that they are completed this year.
Take a new sankalpa about what you will do and what you will not do.

Where Dispassion is Detrimental!

Karthik: Is there something we should not be dispassionate about?

Guruji: Myself! (laughter)

Do not put off the fire of longing for the Divine or Satsang with Dispassion.

 There is a little fire in you that propels you towards Knowledge, Sadhana, Devotion and Service. Sometimes you use Knowledge to put off that fire. The so-called dispassionate people are often morose and unenthusiastic. Many a times you hear people saying. ” Oh, never mind, God is everywhere, Guruji is in my heart, you can do satsang anywhere. My Seva is my Sadhana, so no need to meditate, anyway I am doing Sadhana twenty-four hours. When God wills, he will call me to satsang and advanced courses again!”

Such excuses should not be justified as dispassion.

When you want to do some service, the mind goes, “Oh, its all Maya, anyway everything is an illusion. It’s all just happening. Things will happen when the time comes!”

In this way Knowledge gets misused and is quoted out of context to suit one’s convenience or laziness. In the name of dispassion do not lose that spark of enthusiasm and interest. Using Knowledge like this you miss out a lot.

Keep the fire of longing for the Divine and service to the society alive. Dispassion here would be detrimental.
