A Summary of the Srimad Bhagavatham : Ch-5. Part-17.





5: Narada Instructs Yudhisthira on Ashrama Dharma :


Part - 17.


This is the duty of a Sannyasin.

And a Sannyasin is the benefactor of all people at the same time.

The Grihastha is also a benefactor of people; he serves people, gives food to them, does the pancha tapas in various forms, feeds guests, and the pancha mahayajnas are his duty.

But the Sannyasin, the true meditator, is a spiritual hero who does service to people by the thought arising from his mind.

Whatever such a powerful hero thinks, it will materialise.

If he thinks, “May there be peace,” it shall be there.

Why not?

Such is the power of the conserved energy that whatever we need will come automatically.

We need not say, “Bring it to me.”

It will come because the mind is identified with that which it requires.

Truth triumphs always, and the truth being our identity with this total ‘I’, it shall triumph always.

In the beginning, we may feel we are defeated, that nothing is coming.

Like the poison that arose in the beginning of the Amrita Manthana though nectar was expected, we may also have to face this Amrita Manthana experience and swallow the poison, which cannot be avoided.

But we should persist and see that the treasures of life are slowly opened up through our own personality.
