For our Sādhanā series this month, let us meditate on the following prayer of the Mother, dated October 23, 1937. This, the Mother says, is a prayer for one who aspires to serve the Divine.
Let us pray to the Mother to bless us with a true spirit of gratefulness for the Divine, because only She can grant us with a steadfast faith, a flaming aspiration, a heart full of true sincerity and true humility to single-mindedly serve Her.
Glory to Thee, O Lord, who triumphest over every obstacle.
Grant that nothing in us shall be an obstacle in Thy work.
Grant that nothing may retard Thy manifestation.
Grant that Thy will may be done in all things and at every moment.
We stand here before Thee that Thy will may be fulfilled in us, in every element, in every activity of our being, from our supreme heights to the smallest cells of the body.
We would be completely under Thy influence to the exclusion of every other.
Grant that we may never forget to own towards Thee a deep, an intense gratitude.
Grant that we may never squander any of the marvellous things that are Thy gifts to us at every instant.
Grant that everything in us may collaborate in Thy work and all be ready for Thy realisation.
Glory to Thee, O Lord, Supreme Master of all realisation.
Give us a faith active and ardent, absolute and unshakable in Thy Victory.~ CWM, Vol. 1, p. 382
After Sincerity and Humility, we are happy to feature another video by the group ‘Art Studio-12 Qualities.’ Like the last two, this one also carries the similar meditative quality and leads one to a deep place of Beauty and Bliss. Gratefulness for the Divine is the spontaneous vibration of the inner being in that state.
Come, let us watch this offering and let the force and beauty of the words along with the visually rich experience carry each of us to a place within from where springs an ever-grateful quietude and peace.
May this be our offering into the yajñá for a true rebirth of the Indian soul, a rebirth in which not only the Mind but the entire Life begins to experience the touch of the Spirit.
Art Studio "12 Qualities" is a group of volunteers from all over the world together creating a new approach to values, knowledge and conscious living. They describe their goal in these words: "Our main goal is to create new Art, new expressions of beauty and power of our true Self that dwells within us. In our works we aspire towards future realizations of a new Dawn and new Birth of Higher Consciousness on earth. We seek to create consciously new educational films, books, documentaries and other forms of Art revealing our deeper thoughts, feelings, emotions and aspirations for a higher and truer Life."
