The Smallest Prayer!
Please reflect on these wonderful words of OSHO ….
“ …One of the most beautiful and the profoundest prayers is found in the Upanishads. It is the smallest prayer ever uttered, yet it contains all the scriptures….
Asatoma Sadgamaya — lead me from the world of untruth to the world of truth.
Tumasoma Jyotirgamaya — lead me from the world of darkness to the world of light.
Mrutyorma Amrutamgamaya — lead me from the world of death to the world of the deathless.
It is a three-dimensional enquiry….
We have to drop all that is untrue. The moment we drop the untrue the truth is revealed of its own accord. You need not go anywhere in search of it, it is found within. The moment we become aware of our inner darkness, that very awareness creates light. Awareness is light and when the light is there darkness starts disappearing. And the moment there is truth and there is light suddenly one becomes absolutely certain of one’s immortality. There is no way to die. Death is the greatest illusion. Nobody has ever died, people just believe that they die. It is a belief, it has no relationship to the truth. Those who know, know that life is eternal, always ongoing; there is no end to it — no beginning, no end. It has always been here, it will always be here.
There is no other space and no other time. Now and here … these two words contain the whole of existence.
Begin by dropping all that is untrue, all that you have believed but you have not known …that is untrue, so drop it. And become aware of your inner unconsciousness so that awareness starts dispelling the darkness. And then the third happens on its own …one suddenly enters into a new dimension, one goes beyond time. And to go beyond time is to go beyond death.
To know that life is eternal is the beginning of rejoicing….!!”
Have a Meaningful Day Friends!
