Guruji's Knowledge Sheet: Obligation

Click on the button Bookmark and Share to share Sri Sri's divine knowledge topics.


DO YOU HAVE TO BE THANKFUL AND FEEL OBLIGED?

Sri Sri: When you are on a spiritual path, you are not thankful or obliged to
anybody. In the Gita, Krishna says, "He is dear to Me who neither goes on
thanking people nor hates anyone (Na abhinandati na dveshthi)."

Thanking and feeling obliged indicates that you believe in some one else's
existence rather than in the Divine who is ruling everything. When you feel
obliged, then you are not honoring the principles of karma or the divine plan.

Appreciate people for what they are, do not thank them for what they do.
Otherwise your thankfulness is centered around ego. You are grateful, but not
for an act. You are grateful for what is. As every individual is nothing but a
puppet of the ONE, thanking and being obliged is simply an exhibition of
ignorance. Everything is ruled, controlled and managed by one Divinity, that
consciousness has to shine forth in every act of yours; you do not have to make
a mood of it.

Q: Guruji, we are so grateful to you, what should we do?

Sri Sri: When you have a total sense of belonging, then gratefulness does not
become an obligation. Such gratefulness is for the Divine only, which enhances
strength.
