Dear Children of this Holy Nation -
Third Talk - 20.
Another lofty ideal is perseverance!
Lord Buddha struggled with his mind and overcame the conflicting thoughts that were pulling as harsh strings: memories of his young wife, memories of his little child Rahul, and the thought of all those wonderful enjoyments that he had as a young man when he was surrounded by all sensual attractions, naturally all this put his mind in a turmoil.
Thus tormented, Lord Buddha takes a vow that he will not stir from his seat until he attains illumination: “The flesh may shrivel, the skin may dry up and fall, all my bones may crumble into dust, but Siddhartha will not leave this seat unless he has attained illumination!”
Such was his firm resolve and determination!
He became an illumined Muni and a sage!
We’re most fortunate to have such grand ideals as part of our heritage from the sublime culture of Bharatavarsha.
We have considered them during these past three days.
May we be inspired to live a life of idealism and be an asset to our nation and through such an ideal life may we make our spiritual Sadhana also fruitful in God-realisation. May God and all the saints bless us to attain success in this worthy endeavour!
Hari Om Tat Sat!
