HINDU FASTS & FESTIVALS : 17-4.
17. GITA JAYANTI-4.
The voice of the Gita is the call of the Supreme.
It is the divine sound explained.
The primal source of all existence, all power, is the manifested sound, Om.
This is the Divine Word.
It is Nada Brahmam, whose unceasing call is :-
“Be ye all ever merged in the eternal, unbroken, continuous consciousness of the Supreme Truth.”
This is the sublime message that the great Gita elaborates and presents in all comprehensiveness and in a universally acceptable form.
It is verily this message of the Bhagavad Gita that I wish to recall and reproclaim with emphasis to you.
To be always conscious of the Divine, to ever feel the Divine Presence, to live always in the awareness of the Supreme Being in the chambers of your heart and everywhere around you, is verily to live a life of fullness and divine perfection on earth itself.
Such constant remembrance of God and such an attitude of mind will release you forever from the clutches of Maya and free you from all fear.
To forget the Supreme is to fall into Maya.
To forget Him is to be assailed by fear.
To live in unbroken remembrance of the Supreme Truth is to remain always in the region of Light, far beyond Maya’s reach.
