A person boasts of learning, intellect and fortune. But nothing is eternal. Therefore one who boasts of anything of this world is a fool. The worst psychic knot is the false vanity of intellect. Whatever is, is of Parama Purusa; nothing is yours. Hence, there should be complete surrender to Parama Purusa. This is the first indispensable fact for mental development. If you really want to serve the world, complete surrender at the feet of Parama Purusa is a must.
That is, submission to the Eternal Entity, to Parama Purusa, is pranipata. Shrii Shrii Anandamurti A .V. Part-1 Chapter-Guru krpa hi kevalam

There is a shower, a heavy shower of compassion on each and everybody, but if during that shower you hold an umbrella over your head, you won’t be drenched. So is the fault that of the shower? Certainly not. The fault is with your hand and with your umbrella of vanity; and that is why you are not drenched by that compassion, by that krpaì. He is not at fault. Then what are you to do? You are to remove that umbrella of vanity from your head, and then and there you will be drenched, fully drenched, by His universal compassion. Shrii Shrii Anandamurti A .V.

A person must stick to his ideals irrespective of whether he receives praise or abuse, whether wealth comes or wealth goes, whether he lives a thousand years or suffers death the next moment. Such a person is called “dhiira”. My direction to you is to be Dhiira. You must stick to your ideals in spite to everything. In this lies your spiritual growth.

There should be only one prayer on the part of human beings – that their intellect might be guided along the right path. If the intellect is reformed, everything is attained. If the intellect goes astray, nothing is attained, even by attaining everything. Shrii Shrii Anandamurti Ananda Vanii January 2018

The Lily and the Moon

Lotus Poster
Train yourself in the ideal of the lily, which blossoms in the mud and has to keep itself engaged in struggle for existence day in and day out, parrying, bracing, and fighting the shocks of muddy water and storms and squalls and sundry other vicissitudes of fortune, and yet it does not forget the moon above. It keeps its love for the moon constantly alive. It seems, however, but a most ordinary flower. There is nothing extraordinary about it. Still this most ordinary little flower has a romantic tie with the great moon. Similarly, you may be an ordinary creature – you may have to pass your days in the ups and downs of your worldly existence – still do not forget that Supreme One. Keep all your desires inclined towards Him. Always keep yourselves merged in His thought. Go deep into the mood of that Infinite Love. Shrii Shrii Anandamurti Baba's Grace
You are never alone or helpless. The force that guides the stars, guides you too. Shrii Shrii Anandamurti Baba's Grace
