Old Age Is for Devotion?
- There is a gross misunderstanding amongst the masses about what age to start
reciting ("JAAP") God's Divine Name ("NAAM"). Most people think that the
time for recitation of God's divine name ("NAAM") is old age. They think
that childhood and youth is not a good time for recitation of God's True
Divine Ambrosial Nectar Name( "NAAM JAPNA"). They think that childhood is
to enjoy schooling and playing. And the time of youth is to complete their
education and get settled in life. And once everything has settled down,
then retirement is the time for Recitation Of True Name ("NAAM JAPNA").
That's if they want to, but more likely they just lead a retired life of
playing with the grand kids and so on.
To be honest, life never settles down. There is no physical event that
happens when they can really sit back and relax. As long as they are
drenched in the scum of Mammon ("Maya"), life is a never-ending puzzle.
Look at your own life and analyze it. Childhood was eaten by youth. You
didn't even realize how or when that happened. Youth is eaten by old age,
which in turn is eaten by death. Your entire life is an ever-changing
phenomenon. Change happens at every moment of your life. You never look
the same as before.
During this process of change there is a continuous depletion of one thing,
which will never come back � the depletion of the wealth of time. The
depletion of the wealth of your breath. The depletion of the wealth of your
own life. Life is due to the soul's presence in the body, it is the
Immortal God's Life force Energy. So in a real sense depletion of life is
the depletion of Ambrosial immortal God's Life force Energy. With every
moment this wealth is depleting and you are going closer to the physical
death of your body. The body has to die. This body have been given to you
with the great grace of the Almighty to collect the Ambrosial Nectar God's
Name("Amrit Naam") and make yourself immortal.
