Ten days of prosperity
(Based on the teachings of Guruji Krishnananda)
Mahalaxmi is also known as the goddess of prosperity and abundance. And prosperity is usually understood as monetary wealth.
Prosperity is not just money and riches; it is also wisdom, health, happiness, peace and contentment. We know that one who is not rich can be happy, while an extremely rich person may be too busy to have even a moment of peace in a day.
Prosperity also means Spiritual abundance. Isn’t experiencing stillness in Meditation spiritual wealth? Goddess Mahalaxmi can give both—material and spiritual wealth. She is also the one who can grant true Vairagya (non-attachment).
In fact, when we pray to goddess Mahalaxmi, we should ask for both material and spiritual wealth in equal proportions; we should not ask for one without the other. This is because, in this plane, true spirituality is living a balanced life that has both the spiritual and the material, with all the material activity being carried out spiritually.
Living spiritually is not just Meditating or spending time in other spiritual practices. Doing all our work properly, fulfilling all our responsibilities, manifesting love, compassion and kindness in all our interactions with others, even driving carefully, with kindness to others on the road is being spiritual.
In these ten days, ending on 26th August 2013, we can consciously absorb more of the energies of goddess Mahalaxmi by meditating more or by channelling Light (www.lightchannels.com/channelling.html).
These energies help everyone in the world, whether they are aware of them or not, whether they believe in them or not. Such Divine energies are always meant for everyone.
May all this bring you true prosperity.
