Prayers for Uttarakhand and Homage to People who Died

Humble prayers. Let all people who lost their lives in the rain and flash flood in Uttarakhand attain Moksha.
Humble prayers. Let all animals that lost their lives attain moksha. Let all plants that were destroyed forgive us.
Humble prayers. To the relatives of those who lost near and dear ones in the flood give courage to face life and successfully move ahead in life.
I can’t even ask forgiveness to you Mother Earth, I knew such a huge disaster was going to happen. I daily study and read about them. I was aware but I did nothing. There are more such disasters waiting but I sit helplessly.
Tolerating Adharma is Adharma – I am equally responsible for the death of thousands of human beings and animals and also the destruction of nature. I failed the teachings of Sanatana Dharma. I failed the teachings of Sri Krishna.
I bow my head in shame.
O Krishna forgive me – I will not idly sit at home and tolerate the Adharma. I will do my bit.

I will follow Dharma.

Four Stages of Spiritual Evolution

Four Stages of Spiritual Evolution was mentioned by T.Rajarathinam, in a discourse.

There are said to be four stages in spiritual evolution.
The first is to do with rituals.
The second is to do with the recitation of mantras. The third involves yoga. The fourth is the most evolved stage of jnana.
A fruit begins its journey as a bud. The bud blooms into a flower, which then becomes an unripe fruit and ripens later.
Likewise, ritualistic worship is like a bud. Worship through mantras is like a flower. Yoga is the unripe fruit, and the ultimate stage of jnana is the ripe fruit.
