Kalpatarum Vande!

ll ॐ श्री रामकृष्ण-कल्पतरवे नमः ll

Dear Bhaktas,
This day presents us a thoughtful question. The Giver is ready, the giving is assured, the taker has hands outstretched....., but wait, what do we want? A want that will leave us a 'wanting' person, unfulfilled? Or a want that will put an end to all our wants forever? O speak up my dear mind, is not enough enough? There does seem to be a valid hope, that I shall not be small, inadequate, limited, struggling Samsari any more! Hear ye the sweet utterance of the sweetness-incarnate, the ever-compassionate Thakurji, arousing us from the worldly slumber with the Abhaya-vakya, "What more shall I say? I bless you all, may you be illumined..!
So think deep this day, O dear Mind, let it be 'Sara' you seek, not 'Sam-sara' that you have sought birth after unfulfilled birth!


On this auspicious 'Ekadasi' Kalpataru day, may we have the wisdom to want the want that frees us from wants, and lets us know that we are the limitless Atman and be free!
Jai Sri Guru Maharaj! जय श्री गुरु महाराज !
