WHAT ABOUT SPIRITUAL UP GRADATION?
Let’s see whether this up-gradation is applied to spiritual life also or not. Bhagavad Gita is well known. Lord Krishna also gave Uttara Gita for a better spiritual evolution of life. How many of you know about Uttara Gita? A famous sloka of Uttara Gita regarding spirituality is as follows.
Puja koti samam stotram stotra koti samo japah
japa koti samam dhyaanam dhyanakoti samolayah
(krishna arjuna samvade – uttara gita – mahabharat)
In a conversation of Krishna and Arjuna, Krishna said – the result that
we get by performing karodo pujas is equal to performing of one stotra,
similarly, karod stotras is equal to one japa, karod japas is equal to
one dhyana and karodo dhyana is equal to one mano layah.
Therefore on this Ganesh Chaturthi, Let us upgrade spiritually also. Connect with the God in you by doing an inner journey through meditation. Improvise your spiritual standards of living. Upgrade yourself from Puja to Dhyana. Lead a blissful life.
I wish all of you to come out of the obstacles with the help of Lord Ganesha that stop you from doing meditation.
Victory of the God-dess within you.
