Prayer of a Disciple

On lord ! My Guru ! I am unable to understand thy powers. Let me not be attracted by the greatness and the splendor of the world, instead ,let thy greatness fill the world!.....If i want to serve, i must serve thyself and thy cause, let thy mercy and thy compassion constitute, my prayer, my drink, as well as my life breath. I want to live upon thy mercy and compassion ! They will be my life elements........let my thoughts ,my words and my deeds shine under the canopy of thy that they will attain to health and vigor........In fact, whenever i do a thing, i must do it under thy illumination ......... thy instinctive speech is like a flash of lightening which fills one with vigor, life and energy as the light and lightening do ; while thy contemplative, pre-meditative deliberate and reasoned speeches are like thunders which reverberate every where, Particularly in my heart, and drive away all delusions there from----- Let all my life be devoted to thy service, Oh my spiritual teacher

God Protects His Devotees

Occasionally, God takes pleasure in throwing His devotees in the midst of difficulties....But, ultimately, He does ward off all evil from His saints. He comes to their rescue all of a sudden. He seems to be nowhere ,and yet comes all at once. He reserves happiness for His devotees, and takes for Himself their lot of sorrow. His devotees need not, therefore, entertain any fear or anxiety.....They should only maintain courage, bear courageously the buffets of fortune, and God will show Himself near them.....because, in fact, He fills the whole world. When death is before and behind, one should not run, for one's efforts will be of no avail. One should only invoke God, and god will come and take His devotee on His shoulders. For, who shall kill whom God saves? Such a one may wander bare-footed in the whole Forrest, and yet not a single thorn may pierce his feet. He cannot be drowned in water. He cannot be killed by poison. He can never fall into the clutches of death. When bullets and missiles are hurled at him, God will protect him. And God will attend upon His devotee with all happiness. It is the duty of His devotee to remember Him at every step, and then God will follow him with all happiness. He will hold His beautiful cloth as a cover to protect him from the sun.....when His devotees have sat in caverns, He has been their attendant. He has warded off their hunger and thirst, when they have become indifferent to their body.....who else can be their friend who have no friend except God?.....When God sends down His grace , even poison may become nectar.Next Page
