THOUGHT FOR THE DAY 
OUR MOST BELOVED BHAGAWAN’S DIVINE MESSAGE 
You ask for Grace, which is rare and is available at a high cost. 
However, you pay only trash and are disappointed that you are 
unable to secure it! Isn’t it sheer avarice! You claim that you 
have been visiting Puttaparthi (or other sacred places) and 
have served there, longer than 18 years or so and expect huge 
chunks of Grace. But it is not the years that matter – what 
matters is the depth to which the roots of Karma (past actions) 
have grown from your previous births. It takes a long time and 
systematic effort to clear the field of all those growths - that 
effort is the sadhana, of good actions and worship 
(Karma and Upasana).(Divine Discourse, Oct 11, 1964.)
