Thought of the Day

As written at Prashanthi Nilayam on 7 - 7 - 2020

To render an act fit to be offered to God and pure enough to win His Grace, it must manifest Love. The brighter the manifestation, the nearer you are to God. Prema should not be modified by considerations of caste, creed, religion and so on; it cannot be tarnished by envy, malice or hate. Preserve Love from being poisoned by these evils; endeavour to cultivate hatred-less, distinction-free feelings. The root of all religions, substance of all scriptures, rendezvous of all roads, inspiration of all individuals is the Principle of Prema (Love). It is the firmest foundation for your life’s mission. It is the Light that ensures peace and prosperity of the World. Fill every word of yours with Love, fill every act of yours with Love. The word that emerges from your tongue should not stab like the knife, nor wound like an arrow. It must be a foundation of sweet nectar, a soft path of blossoms, and must shower peace and joy. - Divine Discourse, Jul 29, 1969.
