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.
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)
