Thought of the Day

As written at Prashanthi Nilayam on 20 - 10 - 2019

There can be no garland without the string that runs through the flowers. There can be no person without the inner kinship that God ensures for each. He is the Brahmasutra (the Brahman String), invisible but inevitable. When a balloon is blown, it bursts and the air inside it merges with the vast limitless expanse outside. Expansion is the heart of education. Your love must expand and fill your homes, society, and finally, burst these bonds and merge world-over. A drop of water held in the palm evaporates soon; it is too alone. But drop it into the sea and it survives as part of the sea. It assumes the name and taste, the majesty and might of the sea! Cultivate Love; sow the seeds of love in all hearts. Shower Love on the desert sands, let the green shoots, lovely flowers, sweet harvest of nectar of joy, peace and bliss be earned by every being. That is My Wish, My Mission, My Vow. (Divine Discourse, Jul 25, 1975)
