Thought for the Week

  • We need not set out to search for God. Wherever there is truth, God appears. Where Narayana appears, His consort Lakshmi, the goddess of plenty and prosperity, also appears. Hence if you want wealth, you have to take the first step! When you succeed in installing Lord Narayana in your heart, goddess Lakshmi follows her Master into your heart. There is plenty of grace that God can give you. But it is at a depth! Some effort is required to obtain it. If you need to fetch water from a well, you need to tie a rope to a bucket, lower it into the well, and draw the water out. You are neither tying the rope to the bucket nor lowering the bucket into the well, so water is therefore not reaching you. The rope to use is that of devotion. This rope must be tied to the vessel of your heart and lowered into the well of God’s grace. What you receive from the well, when the water is drawn out, is the water of pure bliss.

    – Divine Discourse, May 24, 2002.
