6. THE VALUE OF AN ANCIENT PRAYER -3.
(Talk given at Sri Samadhi Mandir on 22/5/94)
Everything it will achieve. Such is the power of this one truth.
Then it occurred to me that there is another equally valid concept that is even briefer and more ancient.
The above Upanishadic verse has got four lines; this other great idea has three simple sentences.
If this great idea is not lost, everything is not lost.
And what is this other equally significant, deeply meaningful and most wonderful concept of your ancient prayer?
The first verse of the Isavasya Upanishad may not be so much invoked, and all may not be familiar with it. But who is not familiar with this other idea?
In Gujarat, every child, every young student, in every school it is chanted in the morning.
This prayer is :-
"Asato ma sadgamaya, Tamaso ma jyotirgamaya, Mrityor ma amritam gamaya "
'Lead us from the unreal to the Real; Lead us from darkness to Light; Lead us from mortality to Immortality.'
If all the sacred books are lost, but mankind manages to remember this prayer, then humanity need not despair, there is still hope.
