2000-29-10, Los Angeles, USA — Talk on Diwali Celebration (Global Family, Woman as Gruha Lakshmi and Goddess, The Real Bank Balance)
What happened to the family system? What has happened? Why the family got ruined? Because of the wrong ideas about Lakshmi principle…So what is the problem? That human beings don’t have enlightenment. And if they get money, and if they are hankering after things, they have to go to hell, no doubt about it – and do all kinds of things, which was ‘never’ done in the history of this world. I need not tell you all the absurd nonsensical things they do. Then started a negative force of drug, drinking and all kinds of things. I mean, such blindness, such stupidity, that you can’t understand. As if their brains were completely curtailed by the activity of moneymaking. I have seen people choosing their suits and clothes that, when they will die, what they are going to wear. It sounds funny. Even, their dog dies, they make such elaborate arrangements. They choose even their coffin, which one they would like to use for burial.. Gruha Lakshmi means the family. .. But the real bank balance of a Gruha Lakshmi is her family and her children. ..
Women don’t understand that their greatest capacity is to love. How is it that Lakshmi?! is a woman and all the Goddesses are women! And what is the quality of these Goddesses?! is to bestow blessings on people of their own nature, of their own qualities.. When you make a good family, then you create a beautiful, a very beautiful, universe around. And universes after universes like this can create a beautiful universe in the whole world. There is nothing to sacrifice, but to ‘enjoy’ everything. As I said, you enjoy your hospitality, you enjoy your generosity –which you do not feel is a misery or a trouble to you—but you just enjoy. At least I enjoy. If I can give something to someone, that’s the greatest blessing. So, to create a proper home for your children is a very great work today, and it has to be done. Again there selfishness comes. Human beings have so many, such hurdles in life, because, I don’t know why, .. they will only love their own children, they will only love their own husbands, or they will love only their own wives. This doesn’t create a good family. I am talking about the global family.
Confucius: “To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order; we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right.”
Richard Bach: “The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life. Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.”
Kahlil Gibran: “The universe is my country and the human family is my tribe.”
Lao Tzu: “In family life, be completely present.”
