Thank You Aum. Thank You Bha. Thank You Gye Nyame.
Thank You Aum. Thank You Bha. Thank You Gayatri.
Our union with You, attained by
associating with You, is the root and
ground of our Joy and Fulfillment.
Through this spiritual practice of
associating with You by offering all to
You, we are simplifying our life; living
Simply and Thinking of You, the Most
High, the Divine, the Source of Truth,
Righteousness, Love, and Peace.
Unedifying things, or thoughts that do
not improve our health or draw us into
closer association with to You, we keep
out of our consciousness and our life in
general by remembering You.
You are the Eternal LIght of Divine
Intelligence. We are remembering You
by chanting Your Holy Names, offering
You everything, being grateful to You for
our many blessings, and meditating on
You as the Source of Sound and Silence.
Before we eat, drink, or play, we offer
all to You. Associating with You in
this way, we are relishing solitude with
You and enjoying Your association
By association with You, by offering all
to You, we are associating with You,
and our consciousness, awareness, and
intelligence are purified. They are
returning to their original position
beyond desire, including the desire for
desirelessness, and even the desire for
This spiritual practice of always
associating with You is helping us in our
efforts to be purified and restored to
the rich spiritual and cultural heritage
of Most Holy Ancestors.
We are spiritual, not material beings.
This is first teaching of our Most
Holy Ancestors regarding the self. We
are not the temporary body with a
Soul. We are the Infinite, Eternal
Soul, pervading and transcending
the temporary, finite, material body.
Associating with You the One Divine
Soul, Everlasting, Omnipresent,
Omnipotent, within and beyond all
bodies, is our method of purifying our
consciousness, awareness, and
To the extent our consciousness,
awareness, and intelligence are purified
as a consequence of Your purifying
association, we transcend bodily
identification as the self.
Through Your association we are
awakening, identifying more as the
knower of the body, the intelligence,
rather than as the body, the known.
You are our Eternal Well Wisher.
Pervading and transcending all places,
times, designations of class, caste,
race, religions, levels of wealth or
poverty, creeds, colors, or species
of life, You are everywhere.
We offer our deepest gratitude to You
for granting us Your association. In this
way, we are working out our own
salvation with diligence, awakening to
union with You.
Assuredly, we do not have to struggle to
change the world. When we change our
concept of the self, from material to
spiritual, and strive to associate with
You, we see our world in an evermore
positive and beautiful light.
We change the way we see our
world, by seeing the self as spirit,
and You as Supreme Spirit. At the
same time, we are striving to always
associate with You. Hence, the
world we experience is always
The world we experience starts and
ends with the way we see who we are.
We are the Eternal Spirit/Soul, free of
all distinctions, labels, and designations.
No material considerations determine
We regain our own name, language,
and our Most Sublime Culture, the
more we associate with You and
awaken. You, our own original Light
of Divine Intelligence, are the Most
Cultivated and Awake One.
Remembering You, we are acquiring
knowledge, observation, and
experience of Self as the Light of
Divine Intelligence. It is Everlasting
and progressively performed
joyfully. Thank You for revealing
to us this spiritual discipline of
associating with You.
