Celebrating Raksha Bandhan With True Divinity (Part 2)
Raksha Bandhan means a bond of protection. We need protection from all that is causing us harm or pain. All the terror and damage that we see happening in the world on a physical level is a result of emotional turbulence. A soul with deep thoughts of lust will indulge in impure acts; a soul with greed will indulge in theft; a soul with aggression will indulge in violence. The 5 vices – lust, anger, greed, attachment and ego are the causes of emotional suffering of the soul, and when these come out into action, we cause harm to others too.
➔Each soul needs to protect itself from ego, lust, anger, irritation, jealousy, obsession, greed, hatred, hurt, attachment, criticism, domination, manipulation ... the list is long. To protect ourselves we need to inculcate purity of thoughts, words and actions by using our seven qualities – peace, joy, love, bliss, purity, power and wisdom.
✤To experience and radiate our pure qualities, we need to promise our self and God a life of Daily Discipline:
1 ● 𝗚𝘆𝗮𝗻 ➔ Study of spiritual knowledge to fill our self with pure information
2 ● 𝗬𝗼𝗴 ➔ Meditation and Connection with God to empower our self
3 ● 𝗗𝗵𝗮𝗿𝗻𝗮 ➔ Using spiritual principles in our way of living and working
4 ● 𝗦𝗲𝘃𝗮 ➔ Giving and serving others through the mind and physically
5 ● 𝗦𝗮𝘁𝘃𝗶𝗸 (pure) eating and drinking habits
The divine festival of Raksha Bandhan teaches us the connection of Purity, Promise and Protection.

Message for Today
"The one who is detached enjoys all facilities and yet is not dependent"
Expression: For the ones who are detached, the facilities available are a medium for attaining something. They make the best use of each and everything available, for their benefit and the benefit of others. Yet they don't stop because of lack of facilities because they are able to find a way even if there is nothing available.
Experience: When I am detached, my internal stage is beyond fluctuation. I am able to enjoy each and every-thing that comes my way and be light constantly. Also it enables me to be free of dependency. So I am able to make use of all facilities, and yet be free from negative feelings when I am deprived of them.
