Jai Sai Master!
"Have an open mind and be positive". We heard this many a time. What does this actually mean? Listen to what we like and that we feel is aligning with our views and leave the rest? Nay. We keep getting knowledge from all directions and every moment. If one has an open mind, irrespective of where, good point will be taken in and etched in our minds for ever and will try to implement the same, as that would help us in betterment as human being and in turn helps creating a better society. (How an individual's value system can impact a society? Read here)
The key here, however, we should know what is good or bad. For this, we need to look up at those, who lived their life as symbols of swadharma and who showed how to live through their lives. They are called Mahatmas. Those who are omnipotent, or can explain lucidly anything to any human being what they are supposed to do and how a particular thing need to be done. Sri Shirdi Sai Baba, through HIS deeds showed how to live a holistic life. HIS teachings are very pertinent in today's world for every individual of the society where value systems are dwindling.
