Don't loose the "present" moment, the gift of lord, discourse by Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

Dear To all,

We pass through many births and to obtain human birth is rare indeed. It is rare still to be born a normal human being without any physical or mental defect.

But, we waste this birth without using it for the purpose it is meant for. We may think, "In this janma (Birth) I have not seen Bhagavaan (God); I have not done japa, dhyana (Meditation) , yoga or even a 'punya kaarya' (Virtuous deed) but I will try to all these in my next birth! But, this cannot be.

When we go to sleep at night and wake up the next morning we are the same personality that we were when we went to bed. Our quality, good and bad does not change during sleep. Sleep is only 'mano laya' (the mind rests). In sleep the 'mind' rests and the 'vasanas' (Latent Impression) are just lying low. They have not been destroyed. In the morning when the 'mind' wakes up all the 'vasanas' come up again.

Similarly, death is only a long sleep and it does not change the person's 'gunaas' (qualities).

Death is akin to sleep and birth is akin to waking up.

Sleep is for a night and death is a long sleep in another world for some years.

Hence Don't loose the "present" moment, the gift of lord,
