HINDU FASTS & FESTIVALS : 5-4.
5. Guru Purnima : 4.
Become a personification of receptivity.
Empty yourself of your petty ego.
All the treasures locked up in the bosom of Nature will become yours.
You will progress and attain perfection in an amazingly short time.
Become pure and unattached as the mountain breeze.
As the river flows continuously, steadily and constantly towards its goal, the ocean, so also let your life flow ceaselessly towards the supreme state of absolute Existence-Knowledge-Bliss, by letting all your thoughts, all your words and all your actions be directed only towards the goal.
The moon shines by reflecting the dazzling light of the sun.
It is the full moon on the Purnima day that reflects in full splendour the glorious light of the sun. It glorifies the sun.
Purify yourself through the fire of selfless service and Sadhana, and like the full moon, reflect the glorious light of the Self.
Become the full reflectors of Brahmic splendour, the light of lights. Make this your goal: “I will be a living witness to divinity, the brilliant Sun of suns!”
The Supreme Self alone is real.
He is the Soul of all.
He is all-in-all.
He is the essence of this universe.
He is the unity that never admits of a duality under all the varieties and diversities of nature.
Thou art this immortal, all-pervading, all-blissful Self.
Thou art That! Realise this and be free.
