Essence: Sweet children, you have to value this study a great deal. If you are ill or even about to die, you must still sit in class. It is said that you should leave your body with the nectar of knowledge on your lips.
Question: When and how do children become instrumental in turning others away from the Father?
Answer: When those who sulk with brothers and sisters stop studying and become those who defame the Guru, many others who see them also turn away from the Father. Today, they may be studying well but, tomorrow, they stop studying and they therefore cannot tell others to study. Such children deprive themselves of a high status.
Song:The Flame has ignited in the happy gathering for the moths...
Om shanti. You children have understood the meaning of the song. Those who composed the song don't know its meaning. They have written so many Vedas, scriptures, Upanishads etc, but not a single person knows their accurate meaning. Because of not knowing the accurate meaning of them, they continue to waste time and money. The Father explains: You have built many temples and written many Vedas, Upanishads etc. You have had sacrificial fires and done a lot of chanting and tapasya. You spent so much money! Who is the Father explaining all of this to? To those who have died alive and now belong to the Father. You now belong to the Father, which means that you have died alive. So, you now have to make preparations to go back with the Father. It isn't that people will celebrate your birthday or anniversary there. Here, people celebrate the anniversary of Gandhiji with so much splendour. It isn't that Shiv Baba will go away having given you knowledge and that you will then celebrate His birthday in the golden age; no. For half the cycle, you won't celebrate the anniversaries or hold any ceremonies for those who leave their bodies. Cows won't be donated; departed spirits will not be fed. Donations are made so that you receive a return in your next birth. However, in the golden age you experience the reward of this time. Therefore, there is a difference between the customs and systems of devotion and the customs and systems of knowledge. Those who have broad intellects will be able to understand these things. Those who had broad intellects in the previous cycle will have broad intellects now because they have to play those same parts again. You heard in the song how you went around in all directions and how you still remained distant. The Father says: You beat your heads so much on the path of devotion, and yet you were unable to meet Me because you can only meet Me when I come. I only come at the confluence age of every cycle. People say that God comes in every age. They then say that God has 24 incarnations. Therefore, that is wrong. People call out to Me: O Purifier, come! Come and make us impure ones pure. So, your war is now with Maya, Ravan. You don't have a physical war. You conquer Ravan. Who is the main warrior in that? Lust. So you have to conquer that vice, that is, you have to become pure. When you yourselves become pure, you also have to make your children pure so that they too can become masters of the world. If you give them an inheritance now, what would you give them? You would only give them things of clay. OK, look at America - what is that now? It is nothing but pebbles and stones because everything is now to be destroyed. Look how people will die. When there are snowstorms on the mountains, all the birds etc. die. Therefore, the storms of bombs will be same. People everywhere will continue to die like swarms of insects. You know that you will see how everyone dies. Look how many people die in a war. Death is over everyone's head here. In the golden age, there is no fear of death because there is no untimely death there. The Father is taking you to such a world. Therefore, you should follow the shrimat of such a Father. He is the Supreme Teacher and so you children have to pay full attention to the study. There are many who don't value the study at all. For instance, if someone is very ill and about to die, he too should be brought to class. It is said that when someone dies, he should have the nectar of knowledge on his lips, that he should be on the banks of the River Ganges etc., and then he should leave his body. So, there should be that much regard for the study. If, in desperate circumstances, you cannot take someone to class, you should make that person remember Shiv Baba at home. However, children don't pay full attention to the study. Baba says: Bring your register, so that I can know how much each one is studying and to what extent. Baba asks if each of you is studying and whether you are also teaching others, because it is only in this business that an income is earned. All other businesses are like dust. Those brahmin priests have the scriptures under their arms whereas you have the truth. You are establishing the land of truth. You have a huge responsibility and this is why you have to remain cautious. It requires effort to study and teach others. It isn't that you just have to study. You are those on the family path. You may do your housework for eight hours. The Government has a law that you have to work for eight hours. In earlier days, when the steamers used to arrive at night, shopkeepers would keep their shops open all night. You have to become free from your housework and engage yourselves in this service. The Government itself teaches you how to do service. The Government feeds people, so people also have to serve it. Here, too, the Father teaches you and so you have to do Godly Service. It isn't only service. If it were only service, that would be a matter of the intellect to make the self pure. However, we have to make Bharat into heaven. So you have a huge responsibility, just as the other army has a responsibility. The Commander in Chief, the Captains etc. have the most responsibility. It is the same here. The good children who open centres are the commanders and so they have a responsibility. So, each of you has to look at yourself and see whether, instead of doing service, you are doing disservice. There are many children who sulk with brothers and sisters and then stop studying. They don't understand that, by stopping their study, they will be those who defame the Guru and won't be able to attain a high status, that is, they won't be able to claim a high status in the golden age. The Father asks for the register of the children because He understands everything from that, just as in a school the father and teacher understand everything from the register how much the child is studying. Some children continue to play throughout the day, and then, when school finishes, they go back home and say that they have just been to school to study. The parents of some children don't even look at the register of their children, and so they aren't aware of anything. Some parents pay attention so that the children study well. Here, Shiv Baba is Antaryami (the One who knows everything inside you). The register has to be shown to the corporeal one. Children say: Baba, such storms come! Baba says: These storms will come. All of these storms first come to me, because, how could I explain them to you children unless I have experienced them? OK, Maya distressed you the whole night and you weren't even able to sleep. That was time wasted. That is also her duty; she will definitely create conflict. However, it is your duty to remember Baba just as much and chase Maya away. Some children are such that they leave when even a little Maya comes to them. Herbalists say that when you take a particular medicine, there will be a reaction to the illness. However, some people are such that when the illness reacts even slightly to the medicine of a particular herbalist, they would leave him and go to another. It is the same here. They leave knowledge and go to the sages and holy men. Then they say: Everyone else says that you have to live at home with the family and get married whereas you are telling us to get married but remain pure. What kind of difficulty is this? Oh! but you are saying that you want to live at home and claim liberation and liberation-in-life like King Janak. Therefore, you have to remain pure at home. Some say that this is right, but that the destination is too high. They say this and then become afraid. You have to go high. It is also shown in the Dilwala Temple how you are doing tapasya down below and how there is the reward of heaven above you. Therefore, the destination is high anyway. It is said: When you climb, you taste the sweetness of love, that is, the sweetness of heaven. If you fall, you are completely crushed. This is why you have to move along with great caution; you mustn't be afraid. They say that this is the authority of the Gita. There are many Gitas nowadays. There is the Tagore Gita, the Gandhi Gita, etc. Whoever sulks with members of their home go and extract a meaning from the Gita arid write it with their name. In one Gita, it is written: This will happen if you eat aubergines. This will happen if you eat ladies' fingers (okra vegetable). Baba also used to study the Gita every day. Wherever he went, even if he went to a king, he definitely used to study the Gita before going. Some people think that devotees do not cheat. However, no one cheats as much as devotees do. Therefore, Baba says: Children, don't stop studying! Otherwise, Maya, the alligator will eat you and you will then have to repent. In the land of Dharamraj, when you have visions of each and every birth and experience punishment, don't even ask what it's like! No human being knows about liberation or liberation-in-life because they believe that happiness is like the droppings of a crow. So they believe the happiness of heaven will also be like that because they have heard that Rama's Sita was abducted in the silver age, and so that too is sorrow. You now understand that such things don't take place in heaven. This is a story of just Bharat. All other religions are just by-plots in this drama. It is the people of Bharat who take 84 births. Those of other religions do not take 84 births. It is said: Souls remained separated from the Supreme Soul for a long period of time. No one knows the meaning of that. They continue to sing that, but they don't understand anything. This Brahma was also a beggar. He also adopted many gurus, but all of that was cheating. This is why the Father says: Renounce all religions. However, people don't understand the meaning of that. Although people read the Gita, they are like wild parrots. You are those who learn everything and will be threaded in the rosary of victory. What do the people of the world know of these things? If you give them literature, they just throw it away. What do those people know about these jewels of knowledge? You children, who belonged to the deity religion in the previous cycle, have now become Brahmins. Those who become deities now will become deities every cycle, numberwise, according to the effort they make now. Others cannot become deities. The sapling is being planted. That Government plants a sapling of thorns. Here, the Pandava Government is planting the sapling of the deity religion. There is so much difference! This old world will be destroyed when the sapling of the deity religion has been planted. You can see the signs of destruction, of how the war between the Yavanas and the Kauravas is to take place according to the drama. Nothing new! It is not anything new. Why else would it be said that rivers of blood will flow? The Hindus will not fight among themselves. This is the war of the Yavanas and the Kauravas and we are also at war. We are at war! There, too, the commander continues to make sure that the war is continuing well and whether there are any traitors. There is severe punishment for traitors. It is the same here. If someone belongs to the Father and then becomes a traitor, he receives severe punishment in the land of Dharamraj. Children have also had visions. When someone sacrifices himself at Kashi, he experiences punishment for the sins of many births. Then, in his next birth, he begins to perform actions anew. No one can go into liberation. They say that so-and-so went beyond to the land of nirvana. However, no one can go there. They call out to the Father: Purifier, come! The Bestower of Salvation for All is only the One. This is something to be understood. When the Father comes, He grants salvation and liberation to many. God has now issued an ordinance to become pure. People ask: How would the world then continue? Oh, but you are saying that there isn't enough to eat and that there should be fewer people and then you ask how the world would continue! You children have to explain very well. Achcha.

मुरली सार:- ''मीठे बच्चे - तुम्हें पढ़ाई का बहुत कदर रखना है। बीमार हो, मरने पर भी हो तो भी क्लास में बैठो, कहा जाता ज्ञान अमृत मुख में हो तब प्राण तन से निकले''
प्रश्न: कई बच्चे भी बाप से बेमुख करने के निमित्त बन जाते हैं - कब और कैसे?
उत्तर: जो आपस में भाई-बहनों से रूठकर पढ़ाई छोड़ देते हैं और गुरू के निंदक बन जाते हैं, उन्हें देख अनेक बाप से बेमुख हो जाते। आज अच्छा पढ़ते कल पढ़ाई छोड़ देते तो दूसरों को कह न सकें कि तुम पढ़ो। ऐसे बच्चे ऊंच पद से वंचित हो जाते हैं।
गीत:- महफिल में जल उठी शमा....
धारणा के लिए मुख्य सार:
1) घर का काम करते भी समय निकाल रूहानी सेवा जरूर करनी है। अपने को सर्विस बढ़ाने का जिम्मेवार समझना है। डिससर्विस नहीं करनी है।
2) पढ़ाने वाला स्वयं सुप्रीम टीचर है इसलिए पढ़ाई का बहुत-बहुत कदर रखना है। किसी भी हालत में पढाई मिस नहीं करनी है।
