Dear Godlike Friends,
Humble Pranams. Loving Greetings. Namaste. Life is to be lived i.e. to live happily, healthily, harmoniously, lovingly, helpingly, and positively. In most cases, this does not happen. Hence there is suffering, stress, and diseases, which eats into the quality of life. The main cause of this is the ignorance of our True Identity. This ignorance is caused by the restlessness of the mind. This restlessness of the mind, creating ignorance of the Truth, causes fear, cravings, irritability, and anger. Lack of confidence gives rise to uncertainties and chances of failure become more frequent. This gives rise to more stress, cravings, dementia, and depression. If untreated, this may lead to self-destructive tendencies. All these are infections like any physical infection diseases. The joy of life is gone. Life appears to be a burden. All these are preventable too. There are many methods for this prevention. But, the best is our daily practice of the Kriya Yoga method. It is easy uncomplicated and scientific.
Kriya Yoga practice gives calmness and peace and removes ignorance. There is a direct perception of the eternal truth. This knowledge is strength and self-confidence. This strength is Life, a healthy, happy life. Fear, anger, restlessness, and stress are gone. Faith, Positive Attitude, and Courage are obtained. Life becomes and Blessing and joyful. All these are beautifully taught by Lord Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita, the best personal and collective manual of life and joyful living; the Creator and the Creation, and the relationship with God, The Supreme. Due to various factors of Mother Nature, who supervises and regulates the Creation, all persons are not born with divine and positive qualities. Destiny and the Law of Karma are involved. It is true in Yoga-Identity (Kriya Yoga is the applied part of it), destiny is caused and positively, both Pravritti and Nivritti.
A person with dominantly negative of this-divine properties can become positive and divine, by his own action. by restlessness change their destiny by following the law of seven “W’s” and the law often “P’s,. A Guru or Master or Teacher is required. For this vital cosmic change in destiny from negative un-divine qualities to positive divine qualities, the easiest and best technique and lifestyle is Kriya Yoga. But few people are and lifestyle and un-divine and fewer still are purely positive and divine. So there is hope for every being. Most people are combinations of positive and negative, i.e. divine and un-divine. But all have the chance to overcome un-divine and become divine and attain liberation or Mokshya.
Follow the Guru with faith, divine qualities sincerity, and love; practice Kriya Yoga sincerely and correctly, perform all legitimate duties, to the best of your capacity and ability as service to God; and lifestyle & nothing can prevent you from attaining Self Realization in this life. This is the path shown by Lord Krishna, Babaji, Lahiri Mahasaya, Sr Yukteswar Ji, Paramahansa Yogananda, Swami Narayan Giri, and Swami Satyananda Giri.
May God and the Great Masters, Bless, Guide, Protect and Inspire you.
With much love and humbleness,
Paramahansa Atmananda Ji
