HANUMAN--INCARNATION OF THE DIVINE


Hanuman, incarnation of the divine, exiled in the forest,
protects people from accidents,
has physical strength, perseverance, devotion.

Sita gave him a necklace of pearls.
He broke the necklace,
inspected each pearl minutely,
looked for Sita and Rama.
He found them in his heart.

Does man have control over anything?
Our minds are restless
and never still.

We call it monkey-mind.

We have control over this
monkey-mind.

We cannot control the world
around us
but we can control and tame our mind.

We cannot control our life
but we can choose the way
we respond to it.

Symbolic of the perfect mind,
embodiment of the highest potential,
Hanuman is the perfect karma yogi.
He performs his action with detachment.

No selfish motives here.
Just an instrument of destiny.

  5. Pretty much every thought is a choice, so we really do choose the way we react to life. Nice Magpie.
