FOOD CONSUMPTION

Food has major role in human existence. It influences not just our physical health, but also our consciousness. There is a saying "You are what you eat". So we must eat food that helps us in making spiritual advancement in our lives. Lord Srikrishna in Bhagavat Githa, said that food determines the gunas (satvic, rajasic and thamasic) of  human beings in Chapter 17 verses 8 to 10. Here is the brief description about them:
Satvic foods are those that lead to clarity of mind and physical health. These foods are very dear to those of goodness. They promote longevity, virtues, health,strength, happiness,joy etc.,
Fruits, vegetables,milk, milk products, sugar, rice,wheat, honey, juices etc., come under this category.Rajasic foods are those that have a stimulating effect on the mind and body. Those foods lead to aggressiveness and irritability. They are very bitter, sour,salty,hot, pungent etc. These foods cause pain, grief,disease, etc., and liked by persons in the mode of passion…

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BELIEF AND FAITH.

Generally we know that faith is a confidence or trust in a person.It is very essential between wife and husband to lead their marital life happily. In the religion's view faith and confidence are both required for spiritual growth. If we come to the point of realisation of God, it is the real foundation of the entire structure of spirituality. Faith in reality and faith in the right course are ment for realisation.
It is a lively link between mortal and immortal and is one of the six sampathis  of the third sadhana of yoga. Regarding faith , we know the story of bakth Prahlad son of Hiranyakasyap, an evil daitya king. Prahlad is a devoti of Lord Vishnu. Hiranya Kashyap did not like his son to be the bhaktha of his enemy Lord Vishnu. Despite several warnings from his father, Prahlad continues to worship Lord Vishnu.  Then Hiranyakashyap decided to kill Prahlad. He adopted each and every method to kill his son. He even tried to trample his son with elephants also. But Prahlad faced …

Who is Sadguru?

Generally everyone knows about teacher/Lecturer, who educates  the pupils. He teaches the knowledge of the subjects like English, Science, Social, Maths, etc., but it is far away from the knowledge of God. He teaches about the activities in this realistic world, viz., the style of living and how to behave in the society. He teaches us how to make our self a perfect human being to live in the society. 
Whereas Guru gives us Gyan (knowledge) about God, and about spirituality. He teaches us the process to attain God or Almighty by his devine speech or advices. Guru teaches us not only how to live the life in this world but also the life after death. A person who has healthy body, wealth, fame, good family and abundant knowledge of Scripters, epics, vedas and Upanishads and he himself a great writer of scripters but he has not surrendered himself at the feet of a Guru, then he has achieved nothing. 
Sri Ramchandra Maharaj, founder of Sahaj Marg, who himself is a Sadguru …

Subtlest Means

The time has come that the man is awakened to the need of Spirituality.  The force of Creation has created  outward tendencies in man.  That is why in course of time, he has created several worlds which has resulted in making him complex. The present imperfect state of mind is the result of his own doings. Unfortunately, the basic fact that God is simple and can be achieved by simple means is lost sight of.  It has been preached from almost all platforms that realisation  of the Absolute(God) is beyond the capacity of the common man.  This mistaken notion, prompted by self styled gurus, has settled down in almost everybody's heart, and today they have even lost the craving for higher aspirations.

Natural Path

The system promulgated by the Mission is known as Sahaj Marg, or the Natural Path of Realisation of the One, the Ultimate.  Unfortunately, the realisation of the Absolute has so far been thought to be the hardest job almost beyond the capacity of a common man.  This mistaken notion prompted by the misplaced teachings and preachings of the so-called leaders of religion, has so deeply settled down in almost every heart that the very craving for higher aspiration seems to have died out therefrom. 
God is simple and can be achieved by simple means.  This is what Sahaj Marg stands for and presents to the world.  The purpose of the Mission  is served if people begin to realise this simple truth and apply it in their daily routine of life. 

Role of Nature

We should do our duty to uplift Mankind, not minding whether they are doing their duty towards us properly.  We believe that it is the highest moral which we should achieve,  though   with some troubles and sacrifices on our part. This is a part of saintliness.  When we work, it is but natural that some hurdles are also there.  Gradually they diminish. There are good people  everywhere hankering for Him. If we do service, success will surely  dawn. Blessed are those who have a glimpse of Divinity, even though it may be momentary.

 In the Sahaj Marg System, very higher things sometimes come even in the lower stages.  That means Nature is fomenting one with fire of devotion. Cold and heat are almost the same but with a little difference.  The lower part of it is heat, because weightless weight is there above it. If both naturalise, that is the real realisation.  So, only remove the weight and you will find no density.  Air is dense when it is touching the earthly substance. If that tou…

Ultimate Solution

God is simple and the method followed to achieve Him is also simple and straight. Man, technically termed homo sapiens i.e., wise man, has tried to seek God. Thought when purely divine, can reach the Source without fail.  If corrupted with attributes and qualities, realisation also becomes corrupted and degraded.  Gross methods give grosser results.

Meditation on the simple, pure and Ultimate alone can save man in his crisis. This surely makes him more and more simple, bringing him closer and closer to the original home.  As you think, so you become.
