BEST WISHES FOR PEACE


OM SHANTI, SHANTI, SHANTI

Lead me from unreal to real

Lead me from darkness(ignorance) to light(enlightenment)

Lead me from death to immortality

Let there be peace, peace, nothing other than peace.

Asatoma sadgamaya

Tamasomaa Jyotir gamaya

Mrityor maa Amrutam gamaya

Om Shanti, shanti, shanti hi.

Human existence evokes a sense of fear and anxiety. The fear is associated with the idea that the journey is long and tedious and the uncertainty of reaching the shore line. The anxiety is because of the fact that the life span is over as the time marches on relentlessly. The passage of day and night, the change of seasons, the spring and the winter, the life span is over even if the individual wants to cling to his life.The life span is compared to air bubbles in water and the bubble exists only for a moment. The long journey generates fear and the short life span produces anxiety. When the heart is troubled and when the mind is afraid, there is no peace.

SEARCHING FOR PEACE

1. For he himself is our peace.(EPHESIANS 2:14)

2.”Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid”.(JOHN14:27)

3.But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.(GALATIANS5:22-23)

4. Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.(PHILIPPIANS4:4-7)

One thought on “BEST WISHES FOR PEACE

  1. COMMENT SENT BY PROF. R. SUBBARAO :
    All desires will lead to ” DUKHA “(SORROW).The only desire that will not cause bondage is the desire for liberation. The desire and longing for God is also safe and will liberate you in due course.From ‘Advaitic’ point of view, we seek peace and happiness because that is our True Nature. That is our Home. So, there is always a longing to get back to Home. But, since we identify with ourselves,with the body and mind, we do all sorts of things thinking that they will give joy and happiness.
