"love Thy Neighbor" Is ...

--by Rajni, posted Sep 22, 2022

"Love Thy Neighbor" is famous Bible teaching. All religions propagate love in essence. Loving our neighbor doesn't make us Christian. It certainly make us good believer in our own faith/religion. The following message points out what special Bharat (India) has to get benefited to offer to the world.--Rajni

What makes the land of Bharat special? How can we internalize what it represents? Bhagawan lovingly explains, so that we may all become true Bharatiyas, no matter where we were born or where we live.

Bharat has been built on the foundation of Dharma (righteousness), laid down by sages like Narada and Valmiki, teaching people that one should not enthuse over victory or droop over defeat, that both are to be welcomed as tests of one's faith in God. This is a land where faith in God is imbibed at the mother's breast by every child and so, it will never give way to despair and grief. It will rely on the Lord within and discover inexhaustible reinforcements of courage within each heart. The final victory is for those who have faith in the invincible Atman, Reality. Such men will have no hate in their hearts; they will only be sad that others are greedy and envious, and their prayers will be for the granting of wisdom, humility and love even to their opponents: "O God, grant them sad-buddhi - discrimination and the power of cool, calm judgement." Since Vedic times all sons and daughters of India pray: Loka-Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu - "May all the denizens of all the worlds be happy."
- Divine Discourse, Sep 26, 1969.

The Prema Rasa (sweet essence of love) will be drained away if you have holes in your heart in the form of bad feelings and evil thoughts. - Baba
