The Dawn of the Golden Age
- Sri Sakthi Amma
"When there is prayer in mind, there is purity in thought.
When there is purity in thought, there is kindness in the heart.
When there is kindness in the heart, there is service in action.
When there is service in action, there is harmony in the community.
When there is harmony in the community, there is unity in the nation.
When there is unity in the nation, There is peace in the world."
The opening of the golden Mahalakshmi temple has been an outstanding success to
say the least. The Avatar (which means pure God incarnation, without any
karma associated with his birth) continues to touch people's heart, but
now on a grand scale. Millions of dollars worth of gold, a tonne and a
half to be exact (all donated by devotees) some amazing artists,
landscapers and builders with Amma's (The Divine Mother's) guidance have
created this gift for people to come and freely enjoy.
Situated in the middle of a one hundred hectare park, filled with nature,
thousands of different trees, statues, animals and a walkway, with
messages explaining how to connect to the divine source, and by doing good
deeds, helping the underprivileged, and sharing our happiness's one will
raise their own individual and the worlds karma so we can experience more
joy in our lives, and of course many more wonderful and messages.
Here are a few I wrote down.
Many people think there is little time to achieve their goals. With a
material focus, their will never be the thought of enough.
Without spirituality we can survive but are not likely to find true peace
or joy in life.
Without spirituality, materialism will predominate. With that focau you
can not find real peace or joy
On the material path, you are not working for peace and joy. It is a
mission without end. That is the form and power of the material realm.
Spirituality teaches the purpose of life and brings more meaning and joy.
Wanting to help others means you are experiencing love.
Needless to say, it has been a mega hit with the Indian's and reached
front page of every paper nation wide. It's attracting around 100 thousand
daily and people are saying it's the most beautiful temple in all of India
and then, maybe the world! Its ironic really that such a huge amount of
money was spent in its construction, in effort to show the world that
spirituality is the way to more joy and happiness in our lives. But I
guess that's just it. Sometimes the world needs such a big reminder. At
least, that was how it was put by Amma (the Avatar of the Goddess Narayani
or Divine Mother who has created it), it's the sugar coating on the pill.
The child need the sugar coating (materialism) to be attracted and to
enjoy the pill, but the medicine is on the inside and that's what I
definitely get every time I come to India, good dose of truth, love and
wisdom to know how life can be fully enjoyed. Amma has said that this
temple will help transform and create good karma, because people will take
some of these messages to heart and begin to practice them, hence the dawn
of the golden age.
