Even after that solution is not visible, there is no progress and the problem is still there. At that time what we have to do? At that time only surrender will work.
AMBIKA ANADHINIDHANA ASWAROODA APARAJITHA – We have to chant this with full love. Ambika is the universal mother. When you call the universal mother there should be love from the heart.
Anadhinidhana means clearing or solving all types of obstacles or problems. When you go in the spiritual path there will be a lot of obstacles.
Ashwaroodaa – Aswa means a horse. Mind is not a monkey but it is a horse. You cannot channelize the mind or control as it moves so fast like a horse. One who controls this horse is Ashwaroodaa.
One who controls the mind or one who wins the mind is invincible. Nobody can win him, but that is Aparaajithaa.
When you want success the mind should not be there. So the mind should die. When will the mind die? That is only when you surrender.
Till I find the solution I will fight. But when I am not able to solve the problem I will surrender, the mind dies and then the Divine will start acting.
Till such time you surrender, the Divine will be silent. When you surrender as you cannot endure any more, then the Divine will wake up. When mind is active, the Divine is inactive and when the Mind in inactive, the Divine is active.
It is very difficult to understand the life. One who wins the mind can understand the life better.
Even after this, it is not happening means then what you desire is not for you and therefore, you can give up.
Desire to change has to be removed from us. What we have to do for that? We have to develop the attitude, “This life is not mine. Whatever I have is not mine”.
How to find the atman? We need not find it. It is there inside you. When you sleep you are inside the dream as well as outside it. Who is the person inside the dream? Who is seeing it? In our dream state, the soul is seeing it. During our waking state, we are seeing things around us. The one that sees during the sleep is Atma.
Feeding the Atman
We have to feed the atman, which we don’t do. That’s why agnihotram is performed.
Whatever you buy for yourself, say “Suryaya Swaha”.
Before eating anything, say “Suryaya Idham Na mama” (this is not mine).
The one god who everybody can see is Sun.
Agnaye Swaha Agnaye Idham Na mama (Agni is the life force within us).
Praja Pathaye Swaha Praja Pathaye Idham Na mama.
Praja pathi is universal energy – which is nothing but Reiki. What is its Rupam (figure)? It’s Narayana, who has pervaded the entire universe.
Offering to Universe
Therefore, say to yourself, “I offer this — (anything you buy or eat, anything you do) to universal energy, because this is not mine”.
Think, “Today is not mine.”
Whenever you are about to perform an action, think “I am not the doer”. Say these three Mantras before any action.
Whenever money is deposited in the bank in your name, chant the mantras.
When you are happy, say it to yourself, this is not mine.
Whatever I had purchased is not mine.
We have to cultivate this surrendering attitude.
Being an Unfit is a Blessing
When you are unfit in this world, you are fit in the other world. God is not going to ask you what degree you have done. It will not be asked.
Think, “This life is not mine as somebody created it”.
Whatever you earn, you are not going to take it, so Swaha. Whatever name or money you earn, give it up now (inside the mind). So it will be easy in the end (when you die).
When somebody says thanks, say it is not mine saying “Suryaya Swaha Suryaya Idham Namama”.
