RADIO SAI FOR CHILDREN

Dear Children,

  The mind is one of the greatest instruments given to us by God.


It helps us analyse situations, discriminate between right and
wrong and to speak and act in a judicious manner. But there are
certain things that lead to the improper functioning of this
otherwise brilliant instrument. The following story highlights one
such strong factor. Come let us read this interesting short story
that Swami has narrated many times.

The feeling of mine and thine


blinds our judgement and
degrades our nature. Blessed is
the person who identifies himself
with others in their sufferings as
well as in their joy.

That was a little story, with a very important lesson! The feeling
that so and so belongs to me or this object is mine, is a very
overpowering emotion. It has the ability to cloud our
discrimination and take us away from the path of righteousness,
away from the path towards God. Now, that is not something we
want, isn't it! We must have the firmness of conviction to reject
what is wrong and stand by what is right, even if that means it
harms our interests. This inner strength will come to us if we
gradually give up the feeling of 'mine and yours'. Be happy when
something nice happens to your friend or neighbour. When the
person before you is in pain, consider it your own and try to help.
This will eventually make you a person of strong morals, worthy of
respect and admiration. God bless all of you!
