GOD realization is possible for all. The householders need not renounce the world, but they should pray sincerely, practice discrimination between the Eternal and the temporal and remain unattached. GOD listens to sincere prayer. Intense longing (vyakulata) is the secret of success in spiritual life - Sri Ramakrishna.
Many opportunities present themselves for the human beings to look towards GOD and to work towards the most elusive self-realization. There are very few in this world who can grab those opportunities and try crossing the ocean of samsara. Sri Ramakrishna, Pujya Acharya Sai Master are few examples of such people who went through the phases of life and still stayed untouched by the good and bad of such lives.
At at a time when 175th birth anniversary of such Great Soul is being celebrated, it presents a wonderful opportunity to the mankind to re-visit HIS teachings, contemplate and try following them sincerely. Coupled with this, 175th birth anniversary of Sri Siddaroodha is being celebrated this year. At Sri Manik Prabhu samsthan, the celebrations of the 3rd avatara of Lord Dattatreya are being celebrated next year, 2012.
2013-2014 happen to be the year of LIONS, for 150th Birth anniversary of Sri Swami Vivekananda is being celebrated that year, while 75th birth anniversary of Pujya Acharya Sri Ekkirala Bharadwaja (Sri Sai Master) is also being celebrated at the same time.
The year 2013 - 2014 is being celebrated by Sri Manga Bharadwaja Trust under the name of "Prabhanjana Nama Samvatsaram" and blessed by Divyajanani Alivelu Mangamma, and Babugaru (Sri Dwarakanath Jnaneswar) supporting and advising the same.
Never before such an opportunity presented to the mankind like this where in the time period from 2011 to 2014 presents itself like a sacred confluence in which once any one dips sincerely praying for the betterment will be purified for ever. Here sincerity being the key, as Sri Ramakrishna mentioned.
May every soul yearn for such a holy dip in to the confluence, ever contemplating the best and praying for a harmonious and peaceful society.
JAI SAI MASTER!
