Divine Discourse,

 ( As it appeared in Prasanthinilayam)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
OUR MOST BELOVED BHAGAWAN’S DIVINE MESSAGE
 ‘Samskrithi’, the Sanskrit word for culture, is
derived from the root word ‘Samskara’ which
means the dual process of removing dust and
dirt, and planting the virtues of Truth, Right
Conduct, Love, Non-violence and Love. Certain
obligatory rites of initiation and purification
prescribed by the Vedas for one’s spiritual
upliftment, are also referred to as Samskaras.
There are 48 such, but all of them can be
reduced to just one, which is the final and
fulfilling one - recognition of one’s identity with
the Divine. Man (Nara) is God (Narayana). The
individual entity (Jiva) is Divinity (Brahman)
seen through the limitations of primal ignorance.(Divine Discourse, Oct 9, 1964.)
