Gurunathar Message On Ashwini Pooja #25

Gurunathar’s Divine Message Ashwini Pooja 15-05-2007

One of you has asked, “While we realize that the object of going through this birth is to realize God, how does obtaining siddhis help us in achieving this goal?

As I have mentioned before, performing siddhi cannot help us progress more than a step or two in our spiritual journey. If one has the power to fly it will not help him get liberated. The fact that birds can fly does not give them ‘moksham’. If by living in water we could reach God all the fish would be liberated after this birth. If by moving around in our natural state (without garments) we could reach God, all the wild animals in the forests would do so. But none of these are true, our conclusion is that none of these superior abilities by themselves help us reach God. Only a deep desire to reach God, deep faith, daily worship and a constant awareness of His presence lead us to Him.
Gurunathar Thirumoolar’s opinion about performing mental worship or imagining ourselves to be performing the physical acts of worship is that it is also of great value. He recalls that when Arjuna felt very complacent and proud about his having performed many pujas, Lord Krishna showed him that while his prayers had created only pile of leaves; Bhima’s simple ‘manasik’ offering of Vilva leaves to Lord Shiva had created a mountain. He thus destroyed Arjuna’s arrogance and established the importance of Manasika Pooja.
