Life is rewarding. Today we are living and in perfect health. This day is a gift from God. We should be always be thankful and say “Thank you for this lovely day.”There is a technique by which we can make our mind powerful .We can memorize what we have read and produce correct answer during examination .We can prove our potential. Technique is very simple. May be you all know that but still some of you have not applied till now. Now from today try to apply it and practice saying “Thank You” to all.
You should be thankful to your father even if sometimes he used harsh words and scolded you, because he is your well wisher and tries to improve you and points out your weaknesses and drawback. You should say “Thank you” to your mother because a mother is the first teacher in our life. She tries to inculcate good values and Sanskar(tradition) in us.
We should be thankful to all teachers from whom we get knowledge. They try to teach us. May be sometimes we were punished but their intention was to bring good in us. When we develop an attitude of gratitude we grow every moment.
Let us feel we are soul and body is like my house. But most of the time we stay outside this house and pass time. We stay away from home. Let us look inside and meditate along with chanting of the powerful Navakar Mantra with proper understanding of the meaning.
Namo Arihantanam: I bow down to Arihanta,Who not only know himself or herself but also enlighten others.
Namo Siddhanam: I bow down to Siddha,Who apply the knowledge by understanding .
Namo Ayariyanam: I bow down to Acharya,who teaches with their attitude and being an example.
Namo Uvajjhayanam: I bow down to Upadhyaya,Teachers who just started teaching.
Namo Loe Savva-sahunam: I bow down to Sadhu and SadhviTeacahers who just qualify.
