Since it has to be attained some day why not begin it today?

Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

Ramakrishna Paramahamsa used to say, “The just born calf tries to stand up. It succeeds but falls down immediately. But, it tries all over again and stands up. Again it falls down. But, it does not give up its efforts to stand. Finally, after several attempts it succeeds in standing and does not fall down.”

Similarly, we make resolutions to do japa or dhyana many times but fail to keep it up. But, repeated resolutions and effort towards it will finally help us in doing it steadily. Do not give it up with the negative attitude, “Resolutions are not for me!” Do not be diffident. When you sit for japa or dhyana do not begin it with the thought, “I have begun japa-dhyana only now. When will I be able to steady it and attain the goal?” All Mahans had begun in the same manner as you have, now. Those who are Jivan Muktas today began only in this manner. (Every journey starts with a single step.)

Well! What would you do if you give this up? You will be born again and again until the day you do japa and dhyana properly. There is no end to this. You will take repeated births till you attain Moksha. Since it has to be attained some day why not begin it today?
