One and Zero

My teacher Shrii Shrii Anandamurti has a simple advice. I often fail to follow this simple principle. I hope you can.

He uses the Sanskrit expression Parama Purusha to refer to God.

“Your every action should be with Parama Purusha. Without Him, your actions are as nothing, no matter how great they may seem. Yet if you do even a little with Him, you will have done a lot. He is like the number one, your actions are like zeros. If you take the One (1) first and to that One perform your actions, it is like adding zeros to the 1, it is like multiplying by ten with each action. But if that One is not there, your zeros are added to each other and the net result can only be zero. So go on multiplying; let not all be zero. You have taken a human form to realize Him, let not your life be wasted.”

You can obtain Shrii Shrii Anandamurti’s publications from  Ananda Marga Books.
