Radhe Krishna To All,

Good morning to all of u and have a divine blessed day ahead…..

"By doing Ram Nam always, we can rise above the body-idea. Whatever situations we are placed in, whatever job we do, we should think that it is given to us by our Guru Himself. It is His power that makes us digest our food, grow up and so on. As we dedicate ourselves completely to Him, in everything that we do, taking it as being done by Him only, our actions will become spontaneous, just as we unconsciously move our hands or feet. Our body-consciousness then gets diluted until it disappears altogether"

Why do Mahans say human birth is a very rare and special one?

Sri.Sri.Muralidhara Swamiji.

One need not go and look into the scriptures to answer this question.

Open your eyes and look at the world. In the Universe that we live in, we see the numerous life forms ranging from the tiny bacteria, the worms and mosquitoes, honey bees, ants, rats, rabbits, dogs and other animals, the ferocious lion and the huge elephant.

Human beings are an elite and sophisticated creation of God and we are right in the center of the plethora of the Almighty’s creations.

Above us are elevated beings like the Devas, Gandharvas, Yakshas and other demi-gods and gods and above all, is the Supreme Deity namely Sri Krishna.

Those life forms that are lower than humans have neither knowledge about God nor a thirst to attain Him. Those beings higher above the humans in the hierarchy remain in the same state until the ‘Pralaya’.

It is we humans that are fortunate to have the knowledge of God and possess the capability to realize Him. Hence human birth is rare.
