Thought for the day

人は動物のように本能のみで生きる生きものであってはなりません。人はナラ(人間)からナラヤナ(神)へ進化せねばなりません。賢い人は、世俗的な執着に自分が縛られているとは考えません。世間が人を束縛しているのではありません。それは見るための眼、掴むための手もありません。人は自分の思考や欲望に囚われています。束の間で儚いものへの執着で、人は、宇宙のすべては神から顕れ、神の力なしに存在することができないことが分かりません。

ババ

Man should not be a creature of instinct like animals. He should progress from Nara (Human) to Narayana (The Divine). The wise man does not regard himself as bound by worldly attachments. It is not the world that binds man. It has neither eyes to see nor hands to grasp. Man is a prisoner of his own thoughts and desires. In his attachment to the ephemeral and the perishable, man does not realize that everything in the universe has come from the Divine and cannot exist without the power of the Divine.

- Baba
