6. THE VALUE OF AN ANCIENT PRAYER - 8.
(Talk given at Sri Samadhi Mandir on 22/5/94)
Those who have to work in the forest either in the Himalayas or in Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, people in the forest department and also Sadhus living in the forest have learned one thing :-
even in the darkness of night, when jungle animals prowl about, they are safe if there is a fire where they are sitting.
Because these jungle animals do not dare to approach fire; they shun fire and run away from it.
And so where there is this awareness of life being a process of ever moving from darkness to light—‘tamaso ma jyotirgamaya’—nothing gross,animalistic can approach that Sadhaka, that seeker, that devotee of God, that Dharma-Premi who always has in his heart this idea :-
“I must live and strive to rise from darkness to Light. I must banish all darkness out of my heart and nature and my life, so that I shine with the light of God,
the light of Sattva.”
If this one concept is there, everything will take care of itself.
The whole life will go in the right direction.
Our thoughts, words and deeds will be of the right quality, and our life will lead to enlightenment.
This is the great call of this ancient Vedic prayer.
"Asato ma sat gamaya
Tamaso ma jyotirgamaya
Mrityor ma amritam gamaya"
Let us live to fulfill this prayer in our heart, in our own life, in this very body. Let our heart have but one aspiration—to be a source of light, a source of effulgence, a source of divine brilliance.
Hari Om Tat Sat!
