What must we do to acquire peace and bliss, and uproot the ills of society? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us today.
Man deserves to enjoy peace and bliss, but does not make the necessary effort to get them. If he cultivates love and faith, he will acquire peace and bliss. Without these two, his effort is as fruitless as a letter that has neither a stamp nor the proper address. With love and faith in Swami, you can accomplish any task you undertake. Observe three maxims: “Love of God, Fear of Sin and Morality in Society”. To develop love of God you must evaluate whether every act of yours pleases God or not. When you please God, you will have fear of sin. When these two are present, morality in society will follow naturally. All the ills of the world today are due to the absence of fear of sin and decline in love for God. The decline in respect for human values has undermined world peace.
