Lakshman?s Discourse about Devotion
    #1265520 - 01/31/03 12:21 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

No one is a source of delight or pain to another. We all reap the harvest of our own actions.

Reacting to union and separation, pleasure and pain, friends, foes or neutrals are all illusionary traps.

Birth and death, prosperity and adversity, destiny and time, and all illusionary things such as land, house, town, family, heaven and hell; whatever is thought of, seen or heard with the mind has its root in ignorance. It is not the Supreme Truth.

If a beggar dreams that he has been crowned king, or the Lord of Paradise dreams that he is reduced to the state of a pauper, on waking the beggar has not gained anything and the Lord of Paradise has not lost anything. This is how you should look upon the world. Do not be angry or blame anyone.

Everyone sleeps in the darkness of delusion and attachment, dreaming all kinds of things. Only the Yogis who are in the quest for the highest Truth are awake and aloof from the world. A person should be regarded as awakened when only when he develops indifference and an aversion to sensual pleasures.

Only through right understanding do attachment and confusion disappear from the mind. Then a person can love the Lord. The highest goal is to be devoted to the Lord in thought, word and deed.

The Lord is the Supreme Reality, unknown, imperceptible, eternal, incomparable, unchangeable and beyond all plurality. The Vedas speak of Him as ?not this, not this.?

For the sake of humanity and especially His devotees, the gracious Lord takes a human birth and plays out His drama. When you hear about His deeds, the snares of the world are torn under for you.

The formless God is easily perceived but it is very difficult to recognize His manifested Form.

Some say He is accessible, others say that He is not, and these different ideas confuse the mind.

I found it good up to the point where it brings in the lord.

"Only through right understanding do attachment and confusion disappear from the mind. Then a person can love the Lord. The highest goal is to be devoted to the Lord in thought, word and deed"

This almost made me throwup! and is there such a thing as "right understanding"?
A good piece of writing ruined by religious opinions...

There is no confusion when you truly know the Lord. Religion is mans ideas. A personal relationship with God is true. When you are filled with the Holy Spirt The bible all of a sudden becomes so clear, yet each time you read it You will get a new meaning depending on where you are in life and what God wants you to know and understand. He dose talk to You through His Word as well in other ways.

Pray before diving in to the Instruction book of life.
