THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
It is mentioned: "Success begets success." But how is success to be achieved and what is the success you should aim at? The Bhagavad Geeta declares: "Shraddhavan Labhathe Jnanam" (The persevering seeker secures wisdom). This means that without perseverance and earnestness no success can be achieved. Man is not able to make significant progress towards the Divine because of absence of strenuous striving in the spiritual sphere. Without spiritual practice, reading religious books and listening to spiritual discourses have no value. Study of scriptures and reciting God's names may be good acts in themselves. But, if there is no love, which is the basis of all Sadhana (spiritual discipline), they are of no use.
- Baba
