Weed the Garden of Mind

A lazy gardener neglects his garden and the weeds grow
luxuriously, consuming the manure and water meant for the
crops. A good gardener, on the other hand, inspects his garden
regularly, removes the unwanted weeds and sees that the
manure reaches the crops. Such a gardener reaps a good
harvest.

Human life is like a garden. The crops we have to cultivate
are the good qualities and the weeds we have to remove are
the bad qualities.
Unfortunately, in today’s life of pleasures, the good qualities
are lost and the bad qualities grow fast. Life is no longer
beautiful. How to make it beautiful?

Just as a gardener inspects his garden regularly, we too must
introspect and observe our lives from time to time.

After the completion of a day’s work, just before we retire to
bed, we should set aside some time for self review. We should
ask ourselves this question:

“Am I leading a life similar to that of an animal or that of a
noble person?”

If we identify base animal qualities in us, we must weed
them out one by one and then good qualities, like fragrant
flowers, will bloom in us.

A day has both light and darkness; a rose plant has the flower
and the thorn; a lake has the lotus and the mud; likewise a
human being is a blend of good and bad qualities. If a person
has only evil in him, he is a demon. If he has only goodness,
he is divine. When there is a mixture of good and bad, he is
human.

Human life is a threshold. One may move from humanity to
divinity or may descend to become a demon.

Let us move towards divinity.

    Let the heart be green garden, let the mind be blue sky. Let the right mix of sun, wind, rain grow the beauty and strength of garden. Let those beautiful flowers spread in the face everyday. Let that scene where the tip of tree flying with wind be there always.

    Hare Raama,

    I was amazed by the sequence of scenes followed by Guruji’s inspiring words – ಹಿತವಚನಗಳು.
    It motivate us to perspire to achieve something in life.

    A true farmer is preparing the land with all his fascination and perception.
    And the Jagadguru is inspiring a ಪಾಮರ like me to perspire for betterment of the society as a whole.

    Only Jagadguru knows how to take good out of us by his teachings and blessings.

    Contented, we are to have a guru to bless us and to show the right direction!!!!!!

    What else you need?
