#Ugadi Anugraha Sandesha by #Jagadguru #Shankaracharya #SriSri Vidhushekhara Bharati Mahaswamiji: Everybody should balance material pursuits with spiritual ones. We are aware of devotees from a wide spectrum of professions & businesses who have not only done very well in their fields but have also practised their Nithya karma & other Dharma Anushtanas regularly & sincerely. People always set goals in their careers & finances & embark on the same diligently by working hard, similarly, they should plan their spiritual progress too. Parents should not only follow this for themselves but they are also responsible for instilling Dharmic values in their children & should make sure that their children sincerely follow all the prescribed Karmas. We insist that they study so much, get good marks & ranks, similarly, we should chart a schedule for them & make them learn say a chapter of Gita every month or Adi Shankara stotras as per a pre defined timeline. This human life of ours has been acquired by expending a lot of merit (Punyam) & Life in this human body acquires importance as it is only as a human can one can adhere to Dharma.
Our scriptures say:
प्रत्यहं प्रत्यवेक्षेत नरश्चरितम् आत्मनः ।
किं नु मे पशुभिस्तुल्यं किं नु सत्पुरुषैरिव ॥
“Man has to consult his conscience every day, as to how his day went. He has to examine himself thus, “Did I live like a noble person that day or did I spend it like an animal?”
We need to ask our conscience about our behaviour every single day & accordingly shape our tomorrow.
