As written at PRASANTHI NILAYAM Today




21st September 2014 

Today many are concerned about the levels of pollution in water, air and environment. Enormous amounts of time, effort and resources are spent on purifying the elements. Shouldn’t you also be equally concerned, if not more, about the pollution in human minds? Many minds and hearts are much contaminated. The dire need today is to eradicate this pollution. Many are deeply immersed in worldly pleasures and desires. As a result, there is mental dissatisfaction and bitter frustration. Turn the minds, back to the source, from where they have originated. What should a fish out of water do to survive? Can the fish thrive by immersing itself in coffee or by placing itself on the most comfortable couch? The fish will survive happily only when it returns home - water! So too, human minds must be restored to their original home, which is the Divine Self within every being. Mental peace can be attained only by turning inward. (Divine Discourse, Aug 30, 1993)
