Practice of Swadhyaya will reveal exactly what points need to be given more attention – exactly what to work on – whether it is one’s attitude, behavior, one’s habits or attachments. A little attention to one’s own self-study will bring clarity. It is good to keep oneself in check.

Master Shree Vasant at the Feet of His Master, Mahashree Gajanan Maharaj.

This does not mean becoming over analytical. It is simply heightening one’s awareness. The ultimate aim in self-development is what we call AT-ONE-MENT. There, of course, service results. One becomes an instrument to serve others. Then it is all joy. But one does not reach this stage by intellectualizing, by analyzing, by dissecting oneself. It is a process simply. So Agnihotra begins this process and gives it a boost. One then practices Daan to reduce attachments. Then Tapa to discipline body and mind.Then Karma to sow seeds of positive action all the time. You reap as you sow.

You may have to pay for past actions, so at least create now only good. Then SWADHYAYA, intensive self-study. This is done in a number of ways, one being through the aid of meditation. Swadhyaya is not done only on the thought level. Meditation is most beneficial to quiet the mind so that true realization can dawn.

       Community must come up in every place where Agnihotris are doing the work.

      When there is more trouble oftentimes there is more opportunity to teach the fire. Suffering prepares a person for God. Now all of man is suffering the effects of pollution. So Agnihotra can go all over the world now.

    Fortunate are those who walk in Light. The ways of the world are not easy now. The pulls are very strong on the youth of today. Even children raised in HOMA atmosphere in the West still have to contend with this constant tug on senses, constant attraction to danger, constant pull on the mind. A parade of sensory illusions passes before them daily. For this age, it is only GRACE that will pull them through.
