Malice Towards None and Pure Love For All E-mail

By Mirananda  

The purpose of this web site is to present the knowledge of true Love.

True Love is universal, just like the color of cows' milk. No matter which cow you get the milk from, it is always white! Just the same, all faiths have produced messengers of this Supreme Love. It is remarkably universal! So true Love is not a monopoly of one religion or place. It belongs to all. It is accessible to all like the rays of the sun.

Such Love cannot be touched, seen or heard. It has no name or form. It cannot even be defined in words. It is beyond our senses. Yet it can be experienced in our heart.

True love is not lust. Love doesn't require wealth, beauty, knowledge or intellect. Everyone can't be equally wealthy, beautiful, knowledgeable, intellectual or powerful. However, everyone has an equally infinite capacity to love and an infinite capacity to be humble

True Love is God Himself. It is also synonymous with Truth.

One who experiences true Love experiences peace, joy and beauty all around.

True Love makes one fearless since true Love knows no fear.

Even if we do not believe in this Love, it does not change the fact that we exist because of this Love. In fact, our real Self is this Love. Just like our physical body is made by food, water, sunlight and air, our real Self is Love since we are part of God, if not God Himself.

It does not depend on whether one accepts this fact or not; the fact remains like the Sun by its own power and energy.

To understand such Love, one has to understand its definition. We have to weigh our preconceptions of love against this definition of absolute Love.

The essence of human life is in experiencing Love by searching for and practicing Spirituality, not religion. Religion creates problems and conflicts by nurturing divisions (egoism), while Spirituality resolves conflicts by lifting us from our weaknesses toward unity.

Mere understanding and knowledge just for the sake of intellect is vain. It only satisfies the ego. One has to practice this knowledge to benefit. This world is made to use and enjoy. Proper understanding is to know that it exists as a part of us and we are part of it. It is created for our joy but not at the cost of others. In fact, we are made to offer our lives to others, but not vice-versa. All great teachers of Truth and Love have been unanimous in this fact.

Proper knowledge is power and is for everybody's good, including ourselves. But improper knowledge leads to destruction by politics without principles, wealth without work, commerce without morality, education without character, pleasure without consciousness, science without humanity and worship without sacrifice.

Proper knowledge, or wisdom, is not new. In fact, it is as old as the hills. We cannot create anything new, only understand the workings of the elements as provided to us. Science cannot create knowledge. It merely uncovers it. It does not create matter. It simply understands it. And understanding is not an end in itself. Enjoyment or Joy is the end in itself. Love is the end in itself.

Our motto is "Malice towards none and love for all."

No matter how difficult, we will only use love as our path or instrument to our goal of Love and Joy.

For years, I have been exposed to modern education myself -- in Mumbai and Poona in India, in Michigan, Utah and Berkeley in the US. Yet, I find true wisdom only in the Bhagvad Gita, Upanishads, Bhagvatam and the sayings of saints irrespective of the religion they come from. Let us explore this wisdom. Let us free ourselves from superstitions, blind faith and beliefs that are not based on true universal experiences. Remember, the blind can only lead the blind.

So let not the ignorance of the world be our guide. Let true saints be our guide. Let us have true courage to explore ourselves. May wisdom prevail.

May Love be its result!

“Live in the midst of the batter of life. Anyone can keep calm in a cave or when asleep. Stand in the whirl and madness of action and reach the Center. If you have found the Center, you cannot be moved.” — Swami Vivekananda
