"Spirituality, Tool to get Harmony of Mind" - Staff Reporter, The Hindu
Spirituality is often viewed as an end in itself after achieving a feeling of unity within and feeling of God’s presence within, its ultimate aim. However, spirituality is a tool, not an end, to achieve harmony of mind, emotion and body, according to Pradeep Narang, Chairman of Sri Aurobindo Society, Puducherry.
Delivering a lecture on “Spirituality in day-to-day life” at Gandhi Memorial Museum at Madurai on Sunday (June 22, 2008), he said that spiritual journey cannot begin without faith, for which the acceptance of mind was essential. “While it is true faith comes with experience, and vice versa. Faith cannot come on its own. Effort must be taken to have faith,” he said.
Speaking about prayer, he said that the intensity of prayer was directly proportional to the problems faced by one. Chairman of Sri Aurobindo Society, Tamil Nadu, N. Tiruvengadam, noted that the audience of the meeting lacked youth. Courtesy: The Hindu, Tamil Nadu - Madurai , June 23, 2008. Grateful thanks to The Hindu. Posted by SURiMOUNT at 4:46 AM 1 comments:
