Divine Dialogues December 2017
Sri Svamiji talks of Pralaya, Dissolution. There are many types of dissolution. The biggest Pralaya is the dissolution of Earth. Through mini-pralaya, rejuvenation takes place to balance different aspects of life. Those on the path of Dharma are lucky to live in both duality and non-duality and overcome pain and suffering in life. Compassion arises in duality; It is essential. Without compassion, life is lifeless. Yet, Svamiji Teaches that compassion must be balanced by Vairagya, dispassion, which is being objective and understanding the higher principles of life - without fear and without preference. To live in the Knowledge, to have Dharma is "in your hand", it is something you can manage. The Dharma will save you. There are trials and tests going on. Agni Pariksha- trial by fire. How do you stand in the crisis? The important thing is to know yourself-- you are not a small human being; rather you are a Giant who can withstand all the storms. Be brave, be strong, be compassionate, be loving, be kind.
