Overview

The debate about God has lingered for centuries. Some people debunk all notion of a God. Some remain devout till death and, every so often, someone may remark, "Who cares?" Insurance companies still refer to ‘acts of God' in the context of catastrophes, war, abuse and discrimination. But is a ‘God' really to be held responsible for human doings? And human mistakes?

By now, your mind may have a firm view about the supernatural, the Divine and the coincidental events in our lives. In reality, whatever others say and do, each of us has the freedom to consider ‘God' in a personal and unique way, or refute the existence of a supreme being all together.

This section focuses on a divine entity and places the Divine absolutely separate from and above the human game, allowing seekers to take a fresh look at the ‘God' factor.

Open-mindedness and bravery will allow your mind, gently and clearly, to sift through alternative ideas. Each meditation described below is an experiment. Read the text two or three times and let the message sit in your mind. You may like to make notes after each experiment.

Implications for life

Manmanabhav is the Sanskrit mantra that disciplines the mind. Manmanabhav means to focus your mind on only One Supreme. It is the essence of knowledge and remembrance and is the life-giving nectar. Manmanabhav is the method to recognise the Supreme, to belong to that soul and to love that soul.

In silence, there need only be you and the Supreme. In silence, the soul connects to the Supreme and draws spiritual power. This current of light and power is transmitted directly from the Supreme to the soul and the ‘battery' of the soul is recharged.

The power of purity accumulated over a period of time gives strength and support to the world. You accumulate purity through the power of silence.

Remembering Our Dadi Janki

The soul of the magnificent Dadi Janki has left her body at 104 years of age. She departed on March 27 at 2 am in Mt Abu, India. She leaves behind hundreds of thousands who felt she was their true friend. Anyone who had been in a room with her would have experienced her booming voice of authority ringing out with 3 “om shantis”.

For over 80 years she asked audiences on all continents to consider 3 questions: “Who am I?” “Who do I belong to?” and “What is the task of this time?” You are a soul. You belong to God. And this is the time of world transformation.

She was a tireless server. From her early days in what is now Pakistan to a few months before her passing, she gave every moment to service, outpacing those who were decades younger. She spoke to princes, prime ministers and those leading ordinary lives as if they were her brothers and sisters, urging them to make their lives worthwhile.

She was a spiritual giant, who kept a lamp of hope lit for humanity. She showed us how to live with love and ultimately how to die with dignity.
