One of the greatest obstacles to spiritual progress is the “Ego” or the “Ahamkaaram”. Bhagawan in His inimitable way makes it so easy to understand this, by splitting the word “Ahamkaaram” as “Aham (I) + Aakaaram (Form)”, which means “I am this body (form)”. Getting over this attachment / obsession to the physical body is indeed a great challenge. In this posting, Bhagawan explains to us the right approach we need to have towards the human body.
|The Human Body is like a Vehicle|
|People are driving their vehicle (body) on crooked paths and damaging the spare parts of the vehicle.|
|An unused car is equivalent to a mere mass of metal!|
|Like a car caught up in slush, we are caught up in Samsaara (worldly life)|
|We are giving too much importance to our physical body|
|If we keep decorating our vehicle (body) and polishing it all the time, what is the use of having such a vehicle?|
|Use the vehicle (body) for reaching your true destination and for upholding Dharma|
