Amma's Full Moon (Pournami) Message - 25.10.2007
"Om Sarva Mangala Mangalye,
Shive Sarvatha Shaadhike,
Sharanye Triambake Gowri,
Nowadays pots are made from stainless steel and other metals. In the old days, 50, maybe 100 years ago, in India and also in other places, many things were made from mud; like pots, vessels and cups were made from mud. There are many types of mud such as mud with sand, mud with limestone and mud with clay, although they are all different they are all mud.
To make the pot you need the special type of mud. If you use the other types of mud like mud with sand it will not hold so you need the mud with the clay. If you have the mud with the clay can you make the pot? No what else do you need? You also need to know how to form the clay.
To get this you need the knowledge of how to make the pot with the nice design. So, you need two things one is the mud with the clay and the other is you need the method of how to make the pot. The mud with the clay is very special. Without the mud with the clay, you can't make the nice pot.
The human birth is like the mud with the clay. Other creations such as the lions and tigers they are like the mud with the sand, they can only survive. So, like the mud with the clay, human birth is very blessed. With it you can do anything.
All humans are like the mud with the clay, but some don't realize that they are this special mud. They don't think they can do anything, sometimes they think they have failed. Humans are like the mud with the clay but some don't have the procedure to make the pot. You need two things for a successful life, what is it? You need the mud with the clay and the procedure.
So what is the procedure? The procedure is wisdom. Before the spiritual path, you will have some happiness but you will want more and more, but only after you are on the spiritual path, you will have the wisdom and stop searching. So, what is wisdom? Wisdom is nothing, wisdom is reality and reality will lead you to the truth.
When you have the truth, you will not keep looking for the next thing. So, on the spiritual path, you will have the procedure to live a good life. So, you are the special clay with the mud, and you need the procedure of how to live a good life, you will get the knowledge and the guidance, you are with the teacher.
Just relax be happy, you are in the right place, you do not have to bug the teacher "teach me teach me"! Be patient, if you don't get your answers today, then it will come tomorrow. When you are on the spiritual path you cannot fail because you have the wisdom. Many people feel that they are defeated in their life.
They do not realize that they are the special mud with the clay. When you have the wisdom you have the power. There are many types of power, memory is power, status is power, position is power, and material is power. When you have the power you can do anything you want and you can never be defeated.
