Thought for the day -28th August 2004 - Onam

オナムは、バリ王の変容とともに、主ヴァーマナの到来を祝う祭事です。ヴィシュヌ神がヴァーマナというブラーミンの矮人(こびと)に姿を変え、バリに近づき、三歩で歩けるだけの土地を要求しました。バリの師、シュクラチャリヤは彼を思い止まらせようとしましたが、バリは、いったん口にしたことを取り下げるほどの大罪はないと答え、ヴァーマナとの約束を貫きました。バリは真理を掲げている間、どんな窮状にも耐える用意をしていたので、真理と愛を通じて永遠の人生を手に入れました。これはバリの生から、我々が学ばねばならないことへの教訓です。肉体は水泡のようであり、心は暴れ猿のようです。肉体に従ってはなりません。心に従ってはなりません。あなたの良心に従いなさい。良心こそ、不滅です。

Onam is the festival of Lord Vamana's advent as well as Emperor Bali's transformation. Lord Vishnu approached Bali in the guise of a Brahmin boy named Vamana and asked for a gift of just three paces of land. His preceptor Sukracharya however, dissuaded him. Bali replied that there was no greater sin than going back on one's words and he upheld the promise made to Vamana. Bali was prepared to undergo any misery while upholding truth and thus attained to eternal life through truth and love. This is the lesson that we must learn from Bali's life. Body is like a water bubble, mind is like a mad monkey. Don't follow the body, don't follow the mind; follow your conscience, for conscience is deathless.
