Insights: Fifth Golden Principle for living in this world - Whatever is received from God, use it to serve His children
- Shree Hari
The fifth golden principle Whatever is received as offering (prasada) from God, use it to serve His children.
With whatever is received as prasada (offering) from God, serve His children.
Utilize whatever you have received to serve the family members in your household and the world at large, considering them to be Gods loving children. Think of it as - I am feeding Gods dear ones and serving them. Just like when you show affection to a child, wouldnt the childs mother be pleased? Similarly if you serve Gods children, He is pleased. How wonderful is that!
Whether the family members listen to us or not, whether they serve in return or not, we have to take care of Gods family. Even if the family members dont work, even if they do nothing at all and cause pain, then too serve them. It is double profit for us. Because, one it is giving us an opportunity to serve, and the second part is that on receiving pain our sins are washed away. Tell me now. Can sorrow touch us? There is no place left for sorrow. All doors are closed, and right here is universal bliss. Have you understood this clearly? If you are still becoming happy and sad with the happenings of this world, you have not understood yet.
So understand this once and for all. We are sitting in and ever-joyful state. We dont have the slightest bit of sorrow. When God is caretaker of everyone, then a devotee of God is never unhappy. They are at all times in a blissful state. They are so blissful, that just by their association we feel equally blissful.
Therefore accept the fifth golden principle Whatever is received as offering (prasada) from God, use it to serve His children.
