And Kripa lifts one like a wave, a leaf, a cloud, embalms the wounded souls, and gives direction to the minds lost in sea of life. The Guru is the perfect medium through whom Kripa-the Grace is bestowed:
Kripa-The Grace by Mahamandaleshwar Geeta Meenakshi Swami Giananand Ji Maharaj illustrates the divine tips to attain the Grace and realize the Truth It’s a read -must for all seeking the path of spiritual quest for the Grace and Truth.
It is amazing how simply Gurudev Swami Giananad ji touches upon each aspect of Kripa in his inimitable style which abounds in simple, down to earth language understandable to common man and yet as depthful as the knowledge of Srimabhagwadgita. There is no exaggeration if I say that the publication of translation of Kripa is in itself the showering of the grace by Gurudev on all those who are not versed in Hindi language.
The very first para of the first chapter is intensely woven fabric of philosophy how human life in itself is great and Gurudev says:
And thus he initiates the journey of Knowledge about the science and philosophy of grace, how man only needs to surrender and shed ego in order to understand it and how Grace of God is nothing but the truth beauty/ that is All ye need to know; Swamiji brings home an important aspect essential for enjoying and knowing about Grace i.e. Mind Must Connect: God is ever ready to bestow his grace on everyone. But the seeker’s mind must connect. And only the mind that connects can feel abundance in form of grace being showered upon him/her even in adversity as it is grace alone that creates’ sam bhav’.
Though the contents of the book emphasize that grace is understood only by faith and not logic, yet Gurudev has put forth the ampleness of grace, its that one has to be an instrument like the flute and bow one’s how to God to feel graciousness of God. He cautions us against non performance of Karma and surrender to destiny. He urges the sadhakas to look below hour of agony and feel bestowed upon as all. Power of prayer and importance of listening to Sadguru’s discources and satsang are like tools to take us nearer to understanding of grace: Bowing in salutation to our Gurudev Mahamandaleshwar Geeta Maneeshi Swami Giananand ji Maharaj who is embodiment of knowledge, immense compassion and love and above all humility, I have hardly any words to express my gratitude for his generosity showered upon me by giving me this opportunity to write on kripa-the Grace: Divine tips to attain the Grace and realize the Truth.
The Sun does not discriminate. Its rays fall on every spot alike. Similar state is that of God, noble Guru and holy books. Their grace shines equally on every devoted seeker. Self-grace means becoming full of positive attitude towards life. Until this happens a soul can not feel the grace showered on it by Divine Sources all the time. It takes opening of the window to feel and see the grace of the sun and the air, he had deprived himself of. Grace granted by God realization. After it, entire life gets charged with divine feeling of joy, peace and sublime pleasure. Then, there are no woes and other negative factors. That is the meaning fullness and graciousness of life.
