*The medicine of Grace to wipe out our sorrows is to develop unshakable
faith in God and tolerance is the medicine of Grace to wipe out our sorrows. Bhakti alone can give us the capacity to put
up with sorrows. Temples are the agencies for developing that Bhakti. Hence, the need for temples at all places. All offerings
to the deities in the temples are tokens of our gratitude to God.
*That which is within all, which is seen as "This"
is the source. He who is within and sees as "This" is God. It is the reality. It is in yourself. What is limited is Sadhana;
what is unlimited is the end.
*He alone is an Acharya, who, after clearly understanding the conclusive teachings of
the Sastras, makes the people of the world gain their welfare by making them stick to the path shown in the Sastras and also
himself does everything according to Sastras and remains in that experience
*Many acts relating to God, like building
temples, digging tanks are performed. While executing them, there would be many difficulties. There would come also several
kinds of dishonour. Not minding any of these, they would complete their tasks with mental one-pointedness removing impurities
from their minds and letting the mind wander. By straightening their mind, they acquire mind control and at the end, they
realise the Reality that is to be known. Digging tanks, building temples and such other acts are called poorttam. The performance
of sacrifices, etc., is known as ishtam. Combining these two, we have the word Ishtapoortam
*In all that you do, let love be the sole motive. Any need must
be with reference to another. Let action be out of love. Passions such as desire and hatred , anger and malice must be totally
eschewed. If love becomes the grounding principle of all deeds . then most of the ills of the world will vanish.
