Maitri Vasudev's quotes

THE SPIRITUAL ACADEMIC COURSE - SCRIPTURES

Maitri Vasudev's picture



Just as every academic course has a syllabus and certain prescribed text books, we also have a rich treasury of wisdom to guide us spiritually. This treasure is our spiritual Scriptures. If we refer to the Scriptures, they give us a striking injunction that helps to bring out and enhance the Spiritual Energy latent within.

"Doership"

Maitri Vasudev's picture



Giving up "doership" does not mean that you should live without performing actions. Here we are referring to the feeling "I am doing this". One should carry out every task, speak every word and think every thought with the complete awareness that God is using us as channels and we are merely instruments to manifest Divine Energy. Then everything that we do gets done effortlessly and perfectly.

Accomplishing the task at hand

Maitri Vasudev's picture



Belief, Faith, Determination - even if you have any one of them you can accomplish anything in life. The three may seem different, but they help you reach the same goal, which is successful accomplishment of the task at hand. Water can come from different sources, but it still quenches thirst. So be determined, focus on your goal and work towards it chanting the Guru's name.

Enlightenment is 'AMMA'!

Maitri Vasudev's picture



Enlightenment can also be called ‘AMMA’ which is the most beloved name of the Divine Mother. Here A stands for Activation, M stands for Motivation, the second M stands for Meditation and the last A indicates the Awareness of enlightenment inside us through realisation of the Self. Enlightenment can come to us only through the complete grace of the Divine Mother who is always one with our Guru.

What is Meditation?

Meditation is the ability to experience inner joy every moment even as we perform our routine tasks. When we are in Sync with our Self, we meditate when we walk, we meditate when we talk and we meditate when we work.

How do Sankalpas fructify?

Maitri Vasudev's picture



Once you make a Sankalpa, keep thinking about it everyday with an unshakable conviction that it will fructify, but mentally offer the fruits of your Sankalpa at the Lotus Feet of the Divine Mother. Then they will not bind you in any way.

Divinity drives out Boredom

Maitri Vasudev's picture



When Divinity enters our lives, three things are taken away from us – boredom, loneliness and aloofness. Nothing seems like work or drudgery anymore because the Spirit within is fully activated. So, we enjoy everything that we do and there is neither boredom nor pressure.

Worry is Unnecessary

Remember, worry is always unnecessary. If you want to replay something in your mind, do not replay mishaps or traumas. Replay the name of the Divine Mother instead. It will make your heart reverberate with joy and enthusiasm.
