Strength of Soul:
- View SourceToday even a mosquito is killing man by giving dangerous fever. Man
used to say, "I will quash you like a mosquito." This means that
mosquito is most negligible creature. But today mosquito has become
an instrument of Yama to kill people! What is reason for this?
Situation is reversed. Souls must realize now about their own real
strength. It has become zero. If zero has a number behind it, it
gets value of ten, hundred, thousand etc. But when number becomes
absent, any number of zeros is zero only.
Soul becomes hero when it is backed by God. Arjuna realized this
after exit of Krishna. He could not save Gopikas from hunters in a
forest & then he realized that he has become zero, since Krishna who
is like back number disappeared. He was thinking that he was a hero
when he killed all Kauravas in battlefield. Then he was backed by
Lord. Real worship of God disappeared.
What do you mean by real worship? Worship means service & sacrifice
of every body & every thing for sake of Lord so that Lord is pleased
by such real love to Him. Worship means practical expression of
divine love or devotion towards God. Main essence of such divine
love is sole aim to please Lord & not to please himself or any other
This means that essence of worship is sacrifice for sake of God &
not sacrifice to please yourself or any other related soul. Such
divine sacrifice is like light. When light disappears, darkness
enters. Darkness is selfishness which is extended towards ones own
family or relatives or caste or nationality or religion etc.
