Each mouth-born Brahmin is the temple of the living saligram.
Do you experience yourselves to be like lotus flowers: extremely detached and loving to the Father? Firstly, because of being light, a lotus floats on water and yet remains detached from the water. While having a family it is able to remain isolated from the family. In the same way, while living in a lokik or an alokik household, do you remain isolated, that is, detached? In order to remain isolated, especially check your attitude. As your attitude, so your household. Which type of attitude should you have? A soul-conscious and spiritual attitude. Through this attitude, you will be able to bring about spirituality in your family, that is, because of having spirituality in the family, you will continue to move along while considering everything to have been entrusted to you. Then, through this, the consciousness of "mine" will easily finish. You cannot have the consciousness of "mine" about something entrusted to you. Due to the consciousness of "mine", there is attachment and interference from other vices. To finish the consciousness of "mine" means to become free from the vices; viceless means to become pure through which the family will become a pure household. To destroy all vices means to become elevated. So, do you consider yourself to be an elevated soul who has destroyed all vices?
Have you made your household a pure household? The first household is your body. Next is the household of bodily relations. So, you have to make the first household, the physical senses of the body, pure. Unless you make the household of the body pure, you will not be able to make the household of bodily relations, whether limited or unlimited, a pure household. Which is the household of the Brahma Kumars and Kumaris? Just as there is the household of limited relations, in the same way, in terms of being Brahma Kumars and Kumaris, you have the relationship of being corporeal brothers and sisters with all the souls of the entire world. You have such a huge, unlimited family! However, you first have to purify the household of your body; only then will you be able to make the unlimited household pure. It is said: Charity begins at home. That is, first of all, do the service of making your home, that is, your body, pure and then you can do unlimited service. So, first of all, ask yourself: Have I made the home of my body pure? Have I made my thoughts, intellect, eyes and mouth spiritual and pure? Just as at Deepawali they clean every comer of the home and pay so much attention that not a single comer is left unclean, in the same way, have you cleansed every physical organ and lit the lamp (deepak) of the soul for all time? Have you celebrated such a Diwali or do you still have to celebrate it? Everyone's deepak is sparkling constantly, is it not? It is said that every home will become a temple. In the same way, have you made the home of your body into a temple? Only when you make every home into a temple will you then be able to make the world a temple, the residence of the living deities.
However many Brahmins there are, each Brahmin is the temple of the living saligram. Each one is the temple of the living spark. Have you made it pure considering it to be a temple? According to the present time of making effort, and according to the time of complete transformation of the world, you should not be influenced by physical senses, matter or any vice. Just as evil spirits do not enter a temple, have you made every home into a temple? Impurity and vices enter where there is uncleanliness. Devilish thoughts or devilish sanskars cannot enter the temple of the living saligram, the temple of a living embodiment of power, the temple of one who destroys evil. If they do enter, then there must be one or other type of uncleanliness or impurity. So, check yourself. If there is any type of uncleanliness or impurity anywhere, then finish that and celebrate the true Deepawali. Only when you make your household pure in this way will world transformation take place.
You come to Madhuban for a spiritual pilgrimage. Therefore, when you return from a spiritual pilgrimage you have to leave your weaknesses behind. Madhuban is the land of transformation. If you do not bring about any transformation, having come to the land of transformation, what benefit would you have taken from the land of transformation? You mustn't bring about transformation for just the time that you are in the land of transformation, but there has to be permanent transformation. Madhuban is called the great yagya, the sacrificial fire in which the horse is sacrificed; generally, something is sacrificed in a sacrificial fire. Do you offer the greatest sacrifice to the great sacrificial fire, or do you take back whatever you have sacrificed? Do you also perform the task according to the name or not? It is called the great sacrificial fire, the land of transformation, the land of blessings. Therefore, perform the tasks according to the name. Continue to fulfill the promise that you make here. Or, do you find it difficult to fulfill it? Souls who fulfill a promise fall into three categories. Some are like true moths in fulfilling a promise: they surrender themselves completely to the Father, that is, they sacrifice themselves in order to fulfill the orders they have received. The next type become like devotees in fulfilling their promise, that is, they repeatedly take power from the Father, that is, they continually ask for power: "Give me the power to tolerate and I will then be able to fulfill my promise." "Give me the power to face and I will then be able to fulfill my promise." They continue to beg in this way, that is, they become devotees. The third type of souls become cheats. They say or write one thing and yet they do another other thing. They even cheat in front of the Father. They cheat by hiding their own mistakes. There are also such cheats. Some do not have any power to fulfill their promise. However, in order to protect themselves, they make excuses. They hide their own weaknesses and make excuses about others. "That relation is like this'and this therefore happened.'' Or, "The atmosphere and. the environment were like this and that is why this happened/" "It happened according to the circumstances." In fulfilling the responsibility, there are those many types who fulfill the responsibility. They all say the same thing: Mine is the one Father and none other, and whatever you say and make me do, I will do just that. However, there are many different categories of those who actually do it and put it into practice. Therefore, whatever you have done up to now, considering yourself to be ordinary, let the past be the past, that is, have mercy on yourself. Know very clearly the importance of this land. Do not consider this land to be ordinary. You come to the great place in order to make yourselves so great. To become great means to know the importance. Do you understand?
To those who transform themselves according to the time, to those who are instruments for world transformation, to those who fulfill the responsibility of love for the Father, to those who have made the Father their constant Companion and who remain constantly as detached as a lotus flower, to such constantly loving children, love, remembrance and namaste from BapDada.
Personal meeting with the sisters from Punjab:
The special virtue Shaktis are remembered for is fearlessness. Do you experience yourselves to be this? Not just to be fearless of human souls, but also fearless of any attack of Maya. Those who are not afraid of Maya are called Shaktis. You are not afraid of Maya, are you? Those who have fear are defeated, whereas those who are fearless are able to make Maya afraid of them. Because of fear, you lose power and your understanding. Generally when people are afraid they lose consciousness; they even lose their understanding. Here, too, those who are afraid of Maya lose their understanding and they are therefore not able to conquer Maya. So, because your name is the Shakti Army and since you have the speciality of being Shaktis, fearlessness should be visible practically. Only then would you be called Shaktis. You cannot be called Shaktis if there is any type of fear. Weak ones are always dependent on others; they never have all rights. You are those who have all rights, are you not? You will not become dependent because of fear, will you? So, is the Shakti Army of Punjab so fearless?
Ever since you became Brahmins, you have been issuing a challenge to Maya: Come Maya! Come and attack as much as you want! I am a Shiv Shakti. You come under the influence of Maya because of your own weakness. Where there are weaknesses, it is there that Maya exists. Just as mosquitoes come where there is rubbish, in the same way, where there are weaknesses that is where Maya comes. So, to become weak means to invoke Maya. You yourselves invoke Maya and you then become afraid of her. So, then, why do you invoke her? Always have the intoxication that you are the Shiv Shakti Army. You became victorious over Maya a cycle ago too. You are, even now, repeating that same part once again. How many times have you been victorious? One who has been victorious many times would be so fearless! Would such a soul be afraid? Which drums have the Shaktis been beating to reveal the Father? In order to awaken Kumbhakarna, beat huge drums. When you beat small drums, Kumbhakarna just turns over to the other side. That is, others say that this is good, but they then just go back to sleep! So you will not be able to do anything for them with small drums. This is why you have to increase contact with them again and again. It is not their fault; they are in a deep sleep. Your duty is to make a special programme and awaken them.
Personal meeting with the brothers from Punjab:
As is the place, so you receive strength in your stage by having awareness of that place. Similarly, by considering yourself to be a resident of Madhuban, you are automatically able to make your stage that of an angel. An angel is one who doesn't have any relationship with the body. So, you forget all the relationships of the body here. Are you able to experience this stage for even a short time? Every now and then it is very difficult to come to Madhuban, yet why do you come again and again? Because whatever you experience here, it strengthens your awareness for when you get back, and so, it is necessary to come to Madhuban. Your staying with your family back there is also for service. If you consider it to be your home you will be a householder, whereas if you consider yourself to be a server you will be a trustee. Karmic bondages from all directions would pull a householder. If you consider yourself to be a server, then, by having the awareness of a trustee, all your consciousness of "mine" will finish. A householder always has the consciousness of "mine". The consciousness of "mine" is very long and complicated. Where there is the consciousness of "mine", the Father cannot be there, whereas where there is no consciousness of "mine", the Father is present. When you consider yourself to be a householder you claim limited rights: "Whatever I say should be accepted, others should listen to me, others should move along according to what I say." Where there are limited rights, the unlimited rights finish. Now, let the past be the past and put a full stop. A full stop is a point. When you do not put a full-stop, that is, when you do not stabilise yourself in the point form, you either put an exclamation mark, a comma or a question mark. What indicates an exclamation mark? When you say: Does this also happen? Does this happen among Brahmins too? This is the sign of an exclamation. You should not even put this sign. "Why did this happen?" To ask "why?" or "what?" is to put a question mark. This is also the basis for the creation of waste thoughts. Whatever happens, continue to observe it as a detached observer. Instead of being a detached observer, you become a companion of the soul. Instead of being the companion of the Father, you become a companion of the other soul. "Achcha, it is like that, isn't it? I also think the same thing." By listening to others or relating something to others, you are giving your agreement. So, when you become a companion of another soul, how can you become a companion of God? You cannot be a companion of God as long as you are a companion of another soul. That yoga is broken. Anything that is broken has to be thrown away. An idol that was worthy to be worshipped has no value when it is broken. So, here, too, when your yoga is broken, you cannot have any elevated attainment, that is, there is no value. Someone who is a constant companion is a constant yogi. Are the residents of Punjab the constant companions of BapDada who have unbroken yoga?
Blessing: May you be liberated in life and remain free from the bondage of the attractions of the sweetness of extroversion.
Extroversion means the feelings and nature of a person and the vibrations of their gross feelings; thoughts, words, relationships and connections that pull one another towards waste; always staying in one type of waste thought or another; to be distant from inner happiness, peace and power the sweetness of this extroversion is very attractive externally so first of all cut it off. It is this sweetness that becomes a subtle bondage and distances you from your destination of success. When you become free from these bondages, you will be said to be liberated in life.
Slogan: Those who remain free from the bondage of any impact from those who perform good or bad actions and are merciful detached observers are true tapaswi souls.
