Worries of Future

Worries of Future
Gurudev! As I remember my filthy past life, I feel giddy and ashamed and my heart-beats increase. O Soul!, what will be your future? You have committed huge amount of sins for enjoying a few moments. How will you withstand the consequences of these sins which are going to come in vast numbers? You can’t even tolerate a slight rise in the temperature and turn on air conditioner, then how will you tolerate unbearable heat of the furnace of hell where iron also liquifies? How will you tolerate or deal with demons who will roast you like corn flakes? Being restless and planning violent struggles to escape, you will have to face bitter words of demons instead of consolation. They will say, “Let’s enjoy now. You were told by Gurudev, be a vegetarian. At that time you replied saying, “Who knows about hell or heaven? Continue reading “Worries of Future” »

Even today, the rite of Confession exists

Even today, the rite of Confession exists
If anyone says that nowdays neither confession nor person advising atonement exists, then that person wanders for infinite births.

Kayapavo vi manusso,
aaloiya nindiya gurusagase
Hoi aereg a lahuo,
aohriya bharuvva bharvaho
