Thought for the day -21st August 2004

久遠の平安と喜びを望むのであれば、人は感覚的な対象を追い求めることをやめねばなりません。物質的な豊かさは、喜びに限らず悩み悲しみをももたらします。富を蓄え、欲望を増大させることは、喜びと悲しみの狭間を行き来するだけでしかありません。執着は喜びと悲しみの原因です。無執着こそ救いです。あなたの家族、家、財産はすべて神の所有物であり、あなたはその管理人でしかないと思いなさい。

Man has to give up the pursuit of sensory objects if he seeks lasting peace and joy. Material wealth brings with it not only joy but also grief. Accumulation of riches, multiplication of wants - these lead only to alternation between joy and grief. Attachment is the root of both joy and grief; detachment is the saviour. Feel that your family, your house and your possessions are all the Lord's property and you are only the trustee.

- Baba
