Amma’s Full Moon (Pournami) Message – 04.02.2007
"Om Sarva Mangala Mangalye,
Shive Sarvatha Shaadhike,
Sharanye Triambake Gowri,
AMMA's Discourse There is a phrase in Sanskrit, ‘Narajenmam Dhurlabam.' which means human birth is special and unique. Of all the life beings, the human being is unique because only human beings can think of others and can do good. Feelings such as hunger, sleep, and the like are common to all life beings including human, but to love and do good to others is possible only by human beings. One can satisfy oneself only by applying one's skill to the maximum capacity.
All other wealth cannot be fully utilized. Even if a man owns ten houses, he can sleep in only one house. He cannot sleep in all ten houses at the same time. If a man has a lot of money, he can spend only a portion of it, and the rest has to be kept at home or be deposited in a bank. He cannot consume all the money he possesses. Whenever you get a chance to do good, do it immediately without delay or waiting for a time to come. That time may never come again because man's mind is always changing. To illustrate this point here is a small story. A wealthy man wanted to offer Rs.20/- during a holy procession. Some people before him worshipped God and offered only Rs.10/- each.
This man thought that while every other person offers only Rs.10/, why should I offer Rs.20/? Hence he took Rs.10/- out of his hand and put it into his pocket. A little later some poor people came and offered Rs.5/- each. Thoughtfully this man withdrew Rs.5/- from his hand and put it into his pocket. A little while later, a few beggars came and offered some change that they had collected through begging. Now, this man thought that his contribution might not be of any significance, and he offered nothing.
So, whenever there is a chance to do good, do it then and there. Always think that you have all that you need and think that you are born to give. Then you will have everything in abundance so that you will be able to give to the have-nots. The talents within you are your wealth. Make full use of your talents to help others. When Amma came to this place in Thirumalaikodi, it was a barren land filled with all kinds of wild and thorny plants. It was felt impossible to walk without footwear. But now you see the towering temples, greenish lawns, air-conditioned dwellings, beaming lights and so on.
How is it possible that such a drastic and heartening change happened? It's all because of the love our Divine Mother showers on us and the faithful love reciprocated from us. Hence, serve with love. You doctors and staff of this hospital are considered to be next to God. Man turns up to God only when all his efforts prove futile. If a patient comes to you, he feels that you are his final rescue. The greatest chance is given to all of you for serving in this hospital. Use this opportunity and serve humanity with love and concern.
Amma blesses that all living beings in the Universe live with all the virtues , peace and happiness.
