Take Refuge in God – Study Circle / Bhajans – Sri Sathya Sai Center Flushing [ssscflushing]

Take Refuge in God – Study Circle
Sunday, August 1st 2021 @ 2 PM

This Sunday we will start off with Bhajans @ 2 PM and followed by “Take Refuge in God” Study Circle topic from 3 PM as sent by Br. Amit Palicha who will be facilitating.

The topic is below..

Take refuge in God and gain victory
Everyone in the world desires victory; no one desires defeat. All crave wealth; no one craves poverty. But, how can victory or wealth be acquired? This has to be thought about and discovered. And we need not search long for the solution. Sanjaya, according to the Mahabharatha, revealed the secret to King Dhritharashtra, “Where there are both Krishna, the Lord of yoga, and Arjuna, the wielder of the bow, there victory is assured and wealth is won.” Why do we need more than this as advice? There is no need to undergo the three-fold struggle —physical, mental, intellectual— to achieve victory. Nor need one get perturbed or anxious. There is no need to pine for wealth and prosperity. Take refuge in God and wield the bow of courage, that is, hold the heart pure. That is enough. Victory and wealth are yours.
But when you pursue victory and wealth, remind yourself that they are shadows, not substantial things. You cannot attain your shadow with the sun behind you even if you pursue it for millions of years, for it flees faster and is always beyond reach. Instead, turn toward the sun and proceed. Then, watch what happens. The shadow falls behind and follows you, instead of leading you. It walks on your footsteps like a slave.
Consider the shadow as the symbol of worldly illusion (maya.) As long as you follow worldly illusion, Madhava is being ignored and is out of sight. You cannot win His vision. You will be caught up in the coils of birth and death and be ever in bondage. From this atmosphere of dependence, one must endeavour to release oneself. Or else, if all one’s efforts are directed to the acquisition of sensual pleasures, it is a sure sign of rank ignorance.
