Swamiji’s pearls of wisdom on this auspicious day of Janamashthami!
Sun rises every day and it sets every evening, billions have taken birth and billions have gone. Each day is new, a special day in His creation. No two leaves are like, no two lives are alike because He is one without the second. Today is no ordinary day, the Supreme Soul decided to assume a human form and grace our planet, our Bharatvarsha, on this day over five thousand years ago. Let us offer our obeisance to the Foremost Person, the Cause of all causes. Obeisance in words alone may not suffice, however.
I encourage you all to make a resolution today, something you will keep no matter what and revisit it this day next year. A resolution to do something or to give up something or to refrain from doing something, anything, that you think will help you become a better, a kinder, a more compassionate person. Anything you believe will help you tread the nobler path. If you feel not up to it, I implore you to engage in a random act of kindness today, help someone, express yourself, make someone feel important, celebrate the presence of Krishna in any living creature. There is no finer way to celebrate His descent on earth, His physical appearance.
The river is high, it rained buckets last night. Villagers are gathering today at the ashram to do kirtan from 7PM till midnight. All of you are in my thoughts, and we will sing His glories on your behalf too.
