Celebrating Raksha Bandhan With True Divinity (Part 3)
The festival of Raksha Bandhan begins with exchange of greetings, applying tilak, tying the sacred thread, offering sweets and then exchanging gifts.
1 ● 𝐆𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬 ➔ Our every thought and word for everyone should be a blessing. Irrespective of their sanskars and behaviours, we create only pure and positive thoughts and words which empower them to change their sanskars. We radiate blessings to them which become their reality and change their destiny. Let us delete all the past hurt that we are still holding on to, because they have radiated impure and negative vibrations to us.
2 ● 𝗧𝗶𝗹𝗮𝗸 ➔ We apply the tilak at the center of the forehead, as a reminder to open the third eye, the seat of the soul. Applying tilak means to awaken to the reality that I am not this body, roles and relationships. I am a divine soul and each one I interact with is the same. This finishes our body consciousness of everything that we have acquired in this life. Body consciousness is the foundation of all vices. Soul consciousness is the foundation of all virtues.
3 ● 𝐑𝐚𝐤𝐡𝐢 ➔ Rakhi is derived from the word Raksha, meaning protection. Tying a rakhi is symbolic of our pledge to use our original sanskars of purity and love in every thought, word and action, which is our protection. When it remains tied on our wrist, a Rakhi is a reminder about the promise we have made to our own self and God.
4 ● 𝗦𝘄𝗲𝗲𝘁𝘀 ➔ It is a reminder that our thoughts, feelings, intentions and words must always be sweet. This creates harmony in our relationships.
5 ● 𝗚𝗶𝗳𝘁𝘀 ➔ Let us choose any addiction, habit or sanskar which has been troubling us and give it up on this Raksha Bandhan. This is the best gift we can give ourselves, our family and to God.

Message for Today
"The one with humility is the one who can be creative"
Expression: Creativity comes to the extent that the intellect is humble. Such an intellect is able to create something new. Because humility is a form of love, it brings enthusiasm for creativity and the ability to bring newness to everything that is done.
Experience: Humility gives me an experience of being a master, of being powerful. This power comes from the experience of being a constant learner because I have no ego about what I already have. This mastery makes me creative, making me bring newness to everything I do.
