We see life from our own perspective because we are selfish. To be successful, we should see the point of view of our customers, financiers, and suppliers. Bosses must see from their employees’ points of view and vice versa. Since I have had so much free time lately, I wanted to see the world from God’s perspective. He created us out of love but the world is filled with so much hatred. He wanted us to have faith but we live in fear. He created us all equal, in His image, but we discriminate. He wants nothing and we only want from Him. He gave us peace and yet, we don’t enjoy it. He forgives us but we cannot forgive anyone. He wants what is best for us but we do what our egos dictate. If you see what poor God has to go through, you will shed tears for Him. I give credit to God for not giving up on us. Start tomorrow and see everything from God’s perspective. Enjoy the perfection of this world, as it is planned by Him. — Satish Daryanani

The best way to clean your system is to use sound. Simply choose any holy name you like, and keep repeating it. Let your body vibrate with that frequency. In the beginning you have to concentrate on that vibration within you. But as you continue, every cell in your body will begin to repeat your mantra or your prayer; then the whole system, the whole personality, body, mind, everything will vibrate on that wavelength. The holy word is like a radio wave. When a mantra is given to you, you tune your personality to a particular frequency. It’s just like tuning a radio. The cosmic music that comes… Read more
There are people who have not been able to serve their preceptors, who have not done any selfless service, or any devotional practices, who have not had the heart to treat other children with the affection they show to their own, who may not have had the heart to help others who were in severe distress – and yet, they sit and speak high philosophy. They sit and speak of cosmic love, of cosmic vision and of their own spiritual experiences and realisation (brahma j ana). They repeat the mantra Sivoham Sivoham (“I am Siva”) – or the mantra Aham Brahma Asmi (“I am the infinite”) – every… Read more

There is an eternal silent entity within us all. And that is what you call the “silent witness” or the “Knower.” The scriptures talk about that as the eternal witness. That is the light in you, or the Self in you, or the Atman. It doesn’t talk or do anything—it just is. And that is what you call “God.” It is due to our own limitations that we say, “God did this, God did that, blessed me, or punished me.” God never blesses or punishes. God just is. Still, we tend to say, “God created the world, God sustains the…
