Welcome to 21 days chanting session. This session is for your benefit. Just a little preparation from your side will maximize the benefit of this session. Can we make sure:
1. we are in a quiet place. We are sitting very comfortably with a stable body.
2. we are going to keep our mind 100% with chanting for the purification.
Alright! In these past 12 days , we have talked about some important elements like Determination, Disciple, Patience, Forgiveness, Anger management, Selfless service and others. Today, we will be focusing on yet another important aspect, Tyaag/Vairagya ( Sacrifice/Detachment). When we say Tyaag or sacrifice, we are emphasizing the sacrifice of Ego. Unfortunately, Ego is the operative force in the majority of people today, which means that most social aggregations of humanity are ego-driven, ego-powered. While Ego urges conformity, it does not produce unity. And, most importantly, it does not propel one towards purity and eventually progresses in a spiritual journey. The other aspect of today’s chanting therapy is Vairagya or detachment – Detachment from worldly pleasures and aspirations that take us off-track from the true goal of our human existence. One who has surpassed Raag, who has no desires left towards material objects and successes, he alone attains detachment. The session today is dedicated to instilling the quality of Tyaag & Vairagya in you. Let us begin the purification session with the swarved chanting.

Human beings has two choices. Either to spoil human opportunity and continue in the cycle of life and death or use this opportunity to rise above the chase of materialistic subjects. Those who choose to keep chasing materialistic subjects fail to experience true peace but fortunate and blessed are those who get Sadguru’s shelter and aspire for rising above subjects through the practice of sacrifice and detachment. There are several spiritually motivated saints who renounce everything from outside for their spiritual growth but if they are deprived of Sadguru’s Brahmavidya- the true wisdom of God, they fail to renounce worldly attachments from inside. Therefore, true spiritual seekers not only practice renunciation and detachment from outside but they take shelter of Sadguru to grow towards true devotion of almighty from inside.
These 21 days of chanting therapy is dedicated to the birth anniversary celebration of his holiness Sant Pravar Sri Vigyandeo ji Maharaj- The divine message for today is –Being in a human body does not make one a human!. Today when we observe the world around us, often a question arises in our mind if we really are the same human beings that God wanted us to be when he awarded us this precious and rare human life. Therefore, Sant Pravar Shri Vigyan Dev Ji Maharaj is sending this powerful message, that just by having a human body does not make us human if in reality, we behave like a wild animal. To be really called a human beings, one needs to carry the virtues defined for human being like forgiveness, non-violence, sacrifice, etc.
