The death of more than 100 devotees in the stampede at Ratangarh temple in Madhya Pradesh makes me visualise God screaming and saying, “Don’t chase me, I’m within you. I reside in your heart. If you don’t look within and instead chase me as the deer runs into a mirage, only to be disillusioned, it is not my fault.” Urvashi Goel writes
There is no better service to the innocent people than to dispel their ignorance and give them the right direction. Religious gurus must tell the people that God is eternal and permanent; they need not chase Him. Urvashi Goel writes.
Once a sage was camping in the house of one of his disciples. Every day after returning from work in the evening, the person used to retire for his daily prayers, which would take almost two hours. Urvashi Goel writes.
If somebody asks me which is the greater virtue-to forgive or to forget-I'd tick the latter. When I take upon the role of the forgiver, I put self on a higher pedestal and expect to be asked for pardon. No only will it put misplaced arrogance in me but also I will have to assure myself that I alone am the one who is hurt. I would like to avoid this, having known that to err is every human. Urvashi Goel writes
Recently, the town where I live lost one of its most successful businessmen at a young age. He was always so worked up that he won't spare time even to visit a doctor despite visible symptoms of ailment.
Our scriptures say God is kind, merciful and supports all creatures on this earth. He is the sustainer and protector of all. Many a time, we think that we have no one to help us. We are wrong because the invisible hand of God is always there to help us.
