BB 84 Bhaktananda SRF Way of Life 2/12/83

Morning: clean the body (ablutions), Energizing Exercises.

Then, meditation:

Maha Mudra

Chant

Meditate ….

To get results, do the techniques of meditation with interest and attention.

Stillness – complete relaxation of mind, body and will. All are calm.

Devotion: remember to talk to God from the heart. Pray, chant, talk to God from the heart. Even stand up and walk around the room and do this (if sleepy).

How do you get to superconsciousness? Just sit in the stillness, eventually a force pulls you up.

When you are calm, that is when the Gurus and God bless you. You have already made the best effort you can, in meditation.

A young man meditated three hours morning and evening. He sat a long time in the stillness. He only had 14 Kriya. Now, just 2 or 3 kriyas and he is in ecstasy.

After devotion, keep talking to God from your heart. Do not watch TV. At least until 10 AM do this. If you can keep God uppermost until 10 AM the rest of the day is a “piece of cake”.

Work:

If you want guidance, keep chanting a spiritual thought all day long, as best you can.

Leisure:

Meditate as much as possible. Attend the Temple if you live nearby, for the evening 5:30 to 7:30 PM meditation. Read the Lessons. This is living according to God’s will.

Company:

Master’s books are our spiritual company.

Only purpose for books:

1. How to live life

2. How to meditate

Reading for other purposes – no point.

After Eating:

You can’t meditate. Find a hobby. Gardening. “Those who have gardens”, Master said, “will be the lucky ones” when times really get hard.

Radio and TV:

These are spiritually enervating. Weakens the will and draws us outward. God is within. A little TV now and then won’t hurt – once or twice a month.

When doing a hobby practice the presence in a relaxed way.

Before Retiring:

Exercise and meditate. Start early, or you have no energy.

Desires:

Our supreme desire in life should be God. Give up unnecessary desires. There is no end to material desires – each one is attached to the other. We have to work harder to fulfill unnecessary desires.

When you are in tune with God, he takes care of His own – His supply flows to you.

Simplicity:

Be efficient. Don’t create useless work for yourself as most people do. Those who accomplish things in life have simplified their lives.

Enthusiasm and Concentration:

These draw energy into the body. Work with a sense of privilege.

Service:

“The son of man came to serve” and Jesus here means human beings, not Jesus himself.

Gratitude:

How to be grateful? Think of how it would be if Master had not come to America. What would I have now?

Bhaktanada said: “When I tell you that you should do something, this is coming from Master, even though we think we should do something else. Master’s ideas work.”

Take time to listen to old people who have no one else to talk to.

Bhaktananda said: “I have heard of SRFer’s not behaving properly, they are not following the SRF way, meditating properly and all that.”

Pray for those who are against you that they may be calm and relaxed.

SRFers should marry SRFers. It’s different life styles. Others don’t understand our way of life – as we understand theirs.

Jesus had 7 brothers and sisters. They did not understand his way of life, either.

To be a peacemaker, do something secretly for them – let them discover on their own.
