Thought for the day -18th September 2004 - Ganesh Chaturthi

人間は3つの性癖に縛られています。ひとつ目はカーマ(所有欲)です。その欲望が満たされないと、クローダ(怒り)がこみ上げてきます。欲望が満たされたとき、3つ目の性癖であるローバ(貪欲)に支配されます。ガネーシャの乗り物はねずみです。ねずみはヴァーサナ(嗅覚)に頼って、破滅の道にさえも導きます。人間もまた、ヴァーサナ(過去世から染みついた好みの性癖)の犠牲です。ガネーシャは人を誤った方向に導き、災難をもたらすこのようなヴァーサナを軽減します。しかしながら、人間の願望が有益であるならば、神は恩寵をおしみなく分け与えます。神の恩寵は、善良で神聖な目的を歩むすべての人に降り注ぎます。

2004年9月18日 ガネーシャ・チャトゥルティ

Man is bound by three tendencies. The first is Kama (the longing to possess). When that longing fails, Krodha (anger) raises its hood. When the desire is fulfilled, the third tendency Lobha (greed) overtakes him. Ganesha's vehicle is the mouse. The mouse is a creature that is led, even to the point of destruction, by Vaasana (the sense of smell). Men too, are victims of Vaasana (preferences and predilections stamped on our minds during the past lives). Ganesha smothers and suppresses these Vaasanas which misdirect man and lead him to misfortune. However, if one's desire is beneficial, the Divine will shower his Grace. His Grace is available for all who seek good and godly goals.
