How do you make Swami happier on His birthday? – Divine Discourse Summary – November 15, 2018

To such a person who only experiences oneness everywhere, where is the scope for such a person to experience any sorrow or any attachment to anything? In this world, the one who lives with attachments will be subject to sorrow; there is no two way about it. Spirituality that teaches oneness of everything and everyone is the most practical solution for peace and harmony and unity in the world. Why should you help someone in the world? Because he or she belongs to the same Divine personality, he or she also is a limb of the same Divine body that you belong to. The one who understands and experiences this oneness alone is capable of forgiving others, of forgetting others’ mistakes, of allowing others to be what they are and still not judge them, still not punish them, still not hate them.  

Coming celebrations are an occasion to practise this principle. Your brothers and sisters would arrive from several campuses to be a part of the Birthday celebrations and other festivities. And the first privilege to sacrifice your comforts, your conveniences for their sake is given to you. If you really want to do something for Swami and make Him happier on this occasion, then bring a smile on another brother or sister’s face, do something that makes another person around you happier and that is how you can also make Swami happier. I am not asking people to come here but if you keep a big crystal of sugar and tell ants not to come, do you think it is going to happen? People with pure heart, with love for God will be attracted to God. There is no other way. The people who are drenched in the worldliness, in the waters of attachment, ‘I’ and ‘mine’, Ahamkara and Mamakara, it is difficult for them to get attracted to God or develop this yearning for God. Till they dry themselves clean of all this worldliness, it is difficult for them to catch fire of love for God.  

Truly I will tell you the truth today. That I am here, and I am here in this way, this is a truth that I have suppressed under My feet with great effort. The moment I remove My feet and allow this truth to spread, you have no idea what is going to happen over here. In a matter of just a few years, you will see a sea of humanity surrounding this whole place and this place will expand ten times more than what it is today. In times to come, I am going to construct five times larger hall than this for Darshans. This is not all of it. This is for daily Darshan not even for festivals. That is how this is going to grow.
