Man is a man if he is human

NEW DELHI,Neelima Praveena: A man can get his identity by a true master. Man is a man if he is human; he is human when the entire mankind is his family. Mankind is his family when the all pervading guru is his home. Guru can be his home when he actually knows him and blissfully identifies himself with him by living up to the teachings of the true master. Gyan is like a seed. It will springs up and grows only if it gets a proper soil. This is like a cool fresh breeze that blows gently into a dark and suffocating night and begins to remove the dust and haze, giving birth to the process to clear and clean dawn. This gyan imparts righteousness in the heart, beauty in the character, harmony in the home, order in the nation and peace in the world.

Before we are born as human beings, the soul has already gone through eighty four lakh species and human life is the golden opportunity to attain and achieve anything. But most often we totally forget its root. At this ignorant state god takes pity on the soul and introduces him to a true master.True master is kind enough to sculpture a master piece.

As the story goes……………………………………………….

There was a cub that was brought up in a herd of sheep.It started playing with and imitating the sheep.Once a tiger attacked the herd.Then the sheep and the cub started running around in panic.However when tiger saw this bizarre behaviour of the cub,it was quite baffled.Then the tiger enquired the cub,”why are you scared of me?”.In response the cub replied- you are the mighty king of the jungle and we are weaklings. The tiger emphasized, they are sheep and they are supposed to be afraid of me, but you are a tiger yourself. You donot have to be afraid of me. To further clarify this point, the tiger led the cub to a pond and pointing to its reflection in the pond and said. Do you see any difference between you and me? Cub then replied- “no”. The tiger finally made the cub to realize the fact that it is the tiger itself and it need not to be afraid of any animals further.
As the tiger showed the cub its reflection, a true guide directs to the road to be taken. To wake up from the slumber of ignorance, one doesn’t have to go to far off places but to approach a true master or a source. What we require is a firm faith and endless effort.

“Even the poison of a snake is powerless if we can firmly deny it.” When a true master or a source awakens the people from the sleep, it is a flowering season. It radiates the fragrance of light all around and makes all those who come under that light fragrant too. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions. So we have to know how to act. This is no more than “Learn to see things in the proper light”.

Ignition can cause revolutions. According to swami Shankaracharya, body and soul are different as light and darkness.
Without the soul, the body is lifeless, just as without the electric current all electrical appliances- bulb, tube,
 TV etc. are useless. Be of good cheer and believe that we are selected by the lord to do great things, and we will
do them. The only required element is Commitment as an individual and Cooperation as a team.
