Jai Jai Ram.
Listening to Pujya Dr. Viswha Mitter Ji’s discourse on CD today I heard:
Jis ne Ram ko apnaaya
aur apna aap gawaanya
usne Ram ko paya.
My understanding is that the one who accepts Shree Ram as one’s own and loses one’s ego or false identity gets to experience Shree Ram.
The question is how do we accept Shree Ram in our heart?
In another discourse Maharaj ji has mentioned that we must have a yearning for Shree Ram in our heart. Our pain of separation should feel in such a way that we forget about our bodily pain. He clarifies that in a dhun ( a melodious devotional) which goes as follows:
Saari duniya ik paase, mere Ram pyara ik paase.
(Let the whole world be on one side and my loving Ram on the other side). Shree Swami Satyanand Ji Maharaj’s Pravachan Piyush also mentions that. I’ve heard that these are also the sentiments and lifestyle adapted by Shree Premji Maharaj.
I choose Ram instead of the whole world should be our feeling in the heart and mind – then we are truly accepting Shree Ram. It will be a little easier to lose our ego then by surrendering it to the holy feet of Shree Ram. This is one of the best Ram Ka Kaam we can do.
Let us lose our false identity, get to know our authentic self through inspirations of Shree Ram and our loving Gurujans.
