Good morning world! Navratra days are considered ‘auspicious’ in India and we all are celebrating them by living a pure life according to our understanding. Many people are not having onions, meat and alcohol, to live a pure life during these days. So the concept is clear, ‘Purity’ leads you towards ‘auspiciousness’. Well, I don’t know how much pure you can become by not consuming certain food or drinks. I also don’t know how impure can you become by consuming them. And anyway, it’s just a matter of eight or nine days when it comes to the ‘practice of purity’ during Navratras. But for me purity is a necessity. It’s the base of my choice of having a peaceful and fulfilling life. And that’s auspicious for me.
Well, I want to ask you to ask yourself, is this ‘practice of purity’ during Navratras enough for you to achieve a permanent and never ending state of auspiciousness in your life? Is there anything else which you can do to have an auspicious, peaceful and fulfilling life? Or is there anything else which you need, in order to have an auspicious, peaceful and fulfilling life? What is ‘practice of purity’ means to you? How authentic can you be in this ‘practice of purity’ according to your understanding of it?
Another very important question comes to my mind is that what if people in general are trying to escape the effort of ‘perpetual sadhna’, which everybody has to go through, by putting the responsibility of their own growth and purification onto some traditional rituals. It’s easy for mind to get an illusion that “oh, I have performed all the rituals told to me by my parents / conditioning and I feel that is enough for my salvation”. Well, I guess its not enough my pal. Purity is not this cheap. Auspiciousness is certainly much-much more expensive and demanding. It demands your authenticity and expects you to take responsibility of your own growth and purification.
I am authentic and I am pure as far as I can understand about authenticity and purity. I have achieved it by identifying and removing the inbuilt hypocracy, blind-faith and putting the responsibility of your own growth and purification onto some traditional rituals. I worked and worked and working and will keep working for my purity and authenticity. And as far as I have found through my sadhna, there is no other way.
So folks, Purity is the key to Auspiciousness. And if you want to achieve it in your life and start giving importance to the sadhna. If you want guidance, then I would be happy to help.
