Swamiji preaches About Life From Life For Life!
It is surprising how we actually experience all Swamiji’s teachings in our daily life and do not even realise them until we read them as blogs from Swamiji’s writings. In one of his earlier blogs he has talked about being a toddler, and also about unconditioning one’s mind. If we just sit down and think about it we might say – my mind is totally unconditioned and I am pretty flexible and open to change and accept and learn things easily! But are you really?
I remember one incident from own life about 14 years ago, my daughter was just 3 years old at that time. And as my family tradition goes we start with shlokas very early, so one day I started to teach my daughter the Ganpati Sankat Nashana stotram. It goes ” Pranamya Shirsa Devam Gauri Putram Vinayakam…”. My husband was sitting there listening. He was shocked and exclaimed ” how can you start teaching a little girl such difficult Sanskrit shlokas she can bearly speak our mother Tongue. To which I replied ” she will learn anything I teach her” and truly enough she learnt the entire stotra in 6 months without being able to read or write. My husband took 2 years to learn the same!
So truely if we did uncondition our minds and become toddlers we will learn much more easily, experience and find out the truth for ourselves sooner!
